Sri Lanka fight, but Kohli makes it 9-0

India vs Sri Lanka Virat Kohli did not win toss in sole T20I but Upul Tharanga did

India ended the Sri Lanka tour with a 9-0 scoreline, following their Test and ODI series clean sweeps with a seven-wicket victory in the one-off T20 worldwide at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Wednesday.

After Rohit Sharma (9) and KL Rahul (24) departed, Virat Kohli took the lead role in guiding India to victory.

Kohli and Manish Pandey stabilised the innings with a 119-run partnership, during which Kohli surpassed his half-century.

India (174/3) beat Sri Lanka (170/7) by seven wickets.

A THAAD battery normally consists of six launchers, but only two have been operational so far at the site in rural Seongju. Japan on the other hand has supported the plans, saying it will contribute to peace and stability.

The focus of the lone T20I was whether India would be able to complete a 9-0 thrashing of Sri Lanka across formats.

The tourists had whitewashed Sri Lanka 3-0 in the Tests and 5-0 in the one-day internationals, and followed all of that up with another dominant display in the one-off T20 clash. The batsman was given not-out by the on-field umpire but India chose to review the decision and TV replays showed the ball had brushed the bat. Captain Virat Kohli himself is leading the team from the front.

The 13-year-old victim from Gujarat, son of a textile trader, was part of an 18-member team from Surat's Maitri cricket coaching academy, reported Indian Express.

India's win over Sri Lanka in the one-off T20I was a straightforward one. At that point of time India were just 10 runs away from the victory target. "If we looked at how we played we were probably 15 short".

Dhoni who came next faced just 1 delivery and scored a run and remained not out along with Manish Pandey who also was unbeaten till the end with 51 in 36 deliveries with 4 boundaries and a sixer. Pycroft took a look at the coin after it fell and said "Tails, India" despite the fact that Kohli had called heads. Dilshan Munaweera gave the real momentum to the Lankan innings with a 29-ball 53.

He was in Sri Lanka to play in the under 17 club cricket tournament. In that Sri Lanka won four matches and lost six matches.

For all good let us hope that Hardik will get on with that injury and make a fine comeback in the upcoming Australia series. When India were 2 down, Sri Lanka were right back in the game with scoring rate being brought down and new batsmen at the crease.
