IND vs SL | 1st T20I | SL 131-6 | Overs 20 | Target 200 | Rohit Sharma pleased with Kishan and Jadeja

 
Rohit Sharma on Ishan Kishan- I know the ability he has and it was just a matter of one good knock that came today and he more importantly constructed the innings after the first six overs that pleased me more 
 
Rohit Sharma on Ravindra Jadeja- We want more from him and I want him to bat up the order as much as possible. He has been an improved player over the years and that's why we want to utilise his abilities 
 
Rohit Sharma- We can't afford to make the finding mistakes that we made in this game 
10:41 PM

IND vs SL | 1st T20I | SL 131-6 | Overs 20 | Target 200 | Ishan Kishan Player of the Match

 
Ishan Kishan is the Player of the Match for his brilliant 89 off just 56 balls which helped India post a huge total of 199 runs. This match has also saved Kishan from a lot of criticism that came from all corners during the West Indies series recently. In his knock, Ishan hit three sixes as well

Ishan says, "I got to learn a lot from the West Indies series and I have changed my intent now I am working more on seeing the ball and hitting the ball and would want to play like that going forward."

10:20 PM

IND vs SL | 1st T20I | SL 131-6 | Overs 20 | Target 200- India win by 67 runs

 
And we are into the last over and Harshal Patel is here to bowl that
 
India, as they win this game, will achieve their best run of wins as they will complete their 10th consecutive win after losing two on a trot against Pakistan and New Zealand in the T20 World Cup 2021
 
And that's it, that's the victory for India as Sri Lanka got two runs off the last ball and India won by a huge margin of 62 runs. Sri Lanka could only manage to get 137-6
10:15 PM

IND vs SL | 1st T20I | SL 131-6 | Overs 19 | Target 200- Fifty for Asalanka

 
Jasprit Bumarah comes into the attack for the 19th over as Charith Asalanka aims for a fifty here 
 
And that's the fifty for Charith Asalanka. It is a very patient knock from the left-handed batter who played while the rest of the batters kept getting out. That's the third fifty in T20Is 
 
10:11 PM

IND vs SL | 1st T20I | SL 125-6 | Overs 18 | Target 200- 21 runs from the over

 
Four!! That's a brilliant shot from Charuith Asalnka as the ball goes for four 
 
Six!! That was smooth from Chameera as it was in his arc and pitched on the half-pitch and at Venky's peace it was going to go for a six without any doubt 
 
Four again!! Venkatesh Iyer's figures are getting a hammering here
 
Four once again, That was smart batting from Dushamnatha Chameera as he guides the ball past short third man for four runs 
10:05 PM

IND vs SL | 1st T20I | SL 104-6 | Overs 17 | Target 200- 100 comes up for Sri Lanka

 
100 comes up for Sri Lanka as the pair of Asalankaand Chameera are now planning to playout the overs 
 
Six runs come from the over 
10:02 PM

IND vs SL | 1st T20I | SL 98-6 | Overs 16 | Target 200

 
And a dot to finish the over and with that, Venkatesh Iyer gets one more wicket in one more over
 
Will Venky get a third over? Probably not 
10:00 PM

IND vs SL | 1st T20I | SL 97-6 | Overs 15.4 | Target 200- Venky strikes again

 
Venkatesh Iyer comes into the attack once again 
 
In the air and it falls shorty of Jaspirt Bumrah at short fine leg 
 
Six!! This man can hit the long ball no doubt and KKR seems to have picked the right man in the Auction as he hits his fellow KKR member for a huge sis to mid-wicket 
 
Wicket !! And Venkatesh Iyer's wicket-taking run continues as Chamika Karunaratne chased a very wide ball and managed to get just an edge  to Ishan Kishan 
9:56 PM

IND vs SL | 1st T20I | SL 90-5 | Overs 15 | Target 200-Best over for Sri Lanka

 
Six!! That was a handsome hit by Karunaratne for a huge six over long-on 
 
Four!! After a six there is a four here as well. This time Asalanka goes inside out and gets a four 
 
Great running here from the Sri Lankans and 14 runs come from this over
9:52 PM

IND vs SL | 1st T20I | SL 76-5 | Overs 14 | Target 200-Jadeja completes his spell

 
Sri Lanka are going nowhere at all with this 
 
Four!! However, here is a reverse sweep from Charith Asalanka for four runs as Sanju Samson dives in vain 
 
And that would be it from Jadeja as he completes his four overs and gives away only 28 runs and picks up a wicket as well
9:49 PM

IND vs SL | 1st T20I | SL 67-5 | Overs 13 | Target 200-Deepak Hooda's first T20I over

 
Deepak Hooda has come into the attack on his debut 
 
And he goes around the wicket to left-hander Asalanka 
 
Good bowling from Hooda here as he gets some turn and low bounce is complimentary as always 
 
Four runs from the over 
9:45 PM

IND vs SL | 1st T20I | SL 63-5 | Overs 12 | Target 200- Karunaratne survives a direct hit

 
Ravindra Jadeja is once again completing his overs quickly here as Sri Lanka are unable to get going 
 
The wicket is gripping and Jadeja is lethal here 
 
Direct hit and is it the wicket? That bat is on the line it seems or maybe just over it. This is very tight here and the third umpire would have to take a very controversial call here as the difference between out and out is in millimetres here
 
And he has taken the right call does the umpire as he gives not out 
9:39 PM

IND vs SL | 1st T20I | SL 60-5 | Overs 11 | Target 200- Chahal leading wicket-taker for India in T20Is

 
Reverse sweep from Dasun Shanka and he fails to connect it well 
 
But he is able to connect the regular sweep and takes two runs 
 
Wicket !! Goes for the reverse once gain does Shanka and skies this in the air and is caught at Point by Bhuvneshwar Kumar and with this Chahal becomes India's leading wicket-taker in T20Is
