MATCH SUMMARY:

Team India couldn’t have asked for a better start to their 2020 campaign with an empathetic win over Sri Lanka in the second T20I at Indore. Indian bowlers bowled with aggression with Saini and Shardul being the pick of the bowlers, while Kohli guided yet another chase. 

After asking Sri Lanka to bat first, Sri Lanka had a decent start, but just after the powerplay, Indian bowlers made a strong comeback by taking quick wickets. Sri Lanka were going good at 54-1 after 7 overs, but Washington Sundar, who took Team India’s first wickets of the 2020s decade initiated the collapse of Sri Lanka as in the end Sri Lanka could only manage 142-9 in 20 overs. 

Shardul Thakur was the pick of the bowlers with a fiery spell of 3-23. All his 3 wickets came in the 19th over. Navdeep Saini too was brilliant with the ball with a spell of 2-18. His yorker to dismiss  Gunathilaka was the ball of the match. The comeback man, Jasprit Bumrah, and Sundar took 1 wicket each, while Kuldeep took 2 wickets. 

THE CHASE

Chasing 143 felt a cakewalk for Team India. Among the openers, KL Rahul made an aggressive 45(32), but Dhawan felt a touch slower with a score of 32(29). Kohli, however, stayed till then end as his 30*(26) helped India win the match by 7 wickets with 15 balls remaining. 

Meanwhile, Twitterati were at their hilarious best as they turned the funny moments of the game into a meme fest. So, here are all the best Twitter from the second T20I between India and Sri Lanka.
