What series it was for Sri Lanka, their quest to win a bilateral series against India had finally ended. Sri Lanka won the third and final T20I of the three-match T20I series against India by 7 wickets and they also clinched the T20I series 2-1 on Thursday. Wanindu Hasaranga was the star with the ball for Sri Lanka and he was also the player of the match and series. The Indian team got all-out for 81 runs in the first innings where Hasaranga scalped four wickets by giving away just 9 runs. This is also the first bilateral series win for Sri Lanka against India across formats since August 2008. Indian squad touring Sri Lanka was reduced to almost half when India’s all-rounder Krunal Pandya was tested COVID positive. There were in total six debuts for India in this series and now the management has an idea that who can be considered for the upcoming T20I World Cup in the United Arab Emirates. (SCORECARD)
