IND vs SL 2nd T20I Live Score Updates: Shanaka levels the series for Sri Lanka

 
That would be it then. India would lose a game against Sri Lanka for the first time in 13 games and it has come courtesy of a wicket off the last ball that has been picked by Dasun Shanaka who was also the man with the bat and is now the man with the ball. 
 
10:41 PM

IND vs SL 2nd T20I Live Score Updates: Axar out, India need 18 off 3

 
Out!! That was in the slot and Axar Patel hit it well, but straight to long-off who took the catch well and India would now have to do without him. They need 18 off 3 balls 
 
10:38 PM

IND vs SL 2nd T20I Live Score Updates: Shanaka come to bowl in the last over

 
Dasun Shanaka, who did with the bat for Sri Lanka has decided to do it with the ball too as India need 21 off the last six balls. 
 
10:36 PM

IND vs SL 2nd T20I Live Score Updates: 21 needed off 6 balls

 
So far Kasun Rajitha has bowled two wides and given away five runs off the three legal deliveries. Now in the next three balls, he must not concede anything more than six runs. 
 
An eye is on the clock for the Sri Lankans as they would have to keep one fielder less outside and that might hurt 
 
10:32 PM

IND vs SL 2nd T20I Live Score Updates: Mavi makes it interesting

 
Madushanka is keeping it in the block hole. Axar Patel isn’t able to get the free-flowing boundaries that he was getting earlier
 
Six!! But Shivam Mavi says, ‘wait a while’ because he wants to join the party and has hit a six. After bowling three brilliant yorkers, Madushanka went for the short ball and paid the price. It was really not required. 
 
Four!! And now he bowls the predictable fuller length which has been hit inside out for a six. 
 
Six!! Pathetic from Madushanka here as he bowls yet another full ball and has been hooked for a six yet again by Mavi. 
 
10:24 PM

IND vs SL 2nd T20I Live Score Updates: Weird stumping, Mavi survives

 
It was weird stumping from Kusla Menids as the ball hit his pads and then the stumps. The batter was in the crease till that time, but then he got out of the crease and Menidss broke the stumps, but by the time he did that, Mavi was able to drag his bat inside the crease. 
 
10:19 PM

IND vs SL 2nd T20I Live Score Updates: Surya departs, pressure back on India

 
The pressure is back on India as Suryakumar Yadav, after hitting a fifty has departed by playing the shot in the hands of long-on who did not make any mistake 
 
10:16 PM

IND vs SL 2nd T20I Live Score Updates: Fifty up for Surya

 
Suryakumar Yadav has reached fifty and he has done it style as he smashes a six off yet another length ball from Dilsban Madushanka and gets to the milestone in just 33 balls. 
 
10:15 PM

IND vs SL 2nd T20I Live Score Updates: India turning the game on its head

 
From 73-5 in 11 overs, India have reached 139-5 in 15 overs, scoring a total of 66 runs in the last 24 balls. Now, they need just 68 to win from 30 balls and it seems very much possible 
 
10:12 PM

IND vs SL 2nd T20I Live Score Updates: 20-ball fifty for Axar Patel

 
Seems like Chamika Karuynaratne has not learnt from his mistakes and he has dolled out yet another full ball which has been hooked over long-off for a six by Axar Patel who has reached his fifty in just 20 balls and has turned this game on its head 
 
10:09 PM

IND vs SL 2nd T20I Live Score Updates: Sri Lanka need to find their mojo back

 
In the last seven balls, the Lankans have conceded five sixes and a total of 32 runs. It was Hasaranga first and it is Chamika Karunaratne now. At this rate, they might as well lose this one too 
 
10:05 PM

IND vs SL 2nd T20I Live Score Updates: Axar puts pressure on Hasaranga

 
Axar Patel has hit back-to-back sixes against Waninidy Hasarang as he found a right match-up against the leg spinner. Not only has brought up the hundred for the country, but also the 50 partnership for the sixth wicket between himself and Suryakumar Yadav
 
And that’s another six. Three sixes in a row and Sri Lankans don’t seem to find an answer to this onslaught. Kusal Mendis and Chamika Karunaratne must be pulling their hair now for missing the easy chances. 
 
9:59 PM

IND vs SL 2nd T20I Live Score Updates: Axar utilising his chances

 
After getting two escapes, Axar Patel is now utilising his chances as he has hit off-spinner Maheesh Theekshana for a four and a six back to back 
 
9:58 PM

IND vs SL 2nd T20I Live Score Updates: Comedy of errors, Axar gets another chance

 
This is like rubbing salt in the wounds as Chamika Karunaratne, trying to be a hero, missed the run-out chance on the previous ball and has now been edged for a four by Axar. The Indian left-hander was already dropped by Kusal Menidso off the bowling Hasaranga. Mendis had a chance to redeem himself as Axar was almost touching the crease at the non-striker’s end trying to steal a single when Mendis threw the ball to the bowler, who was away from the stumps and missed them quite convinciungly while trying to hit them in style.
