Deepak Chahar powers India to a series win vs Sri Lanka

Jul 20, 2021 23:23 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Chasing a series win early on the tour, Team India lost another toss as the visitors were asked to bowl first. Sri Lanka were off to a decent start yet again as the opening wicket gave them 77 runs. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Yuzvendra Chahal were the best of the bowlers as they picked up 3 wickets each.

Deepak Chahar took 2 wickets as Sri Lanka rode on a crisp 66 by Charith Asalanka to reach 275/9. In reply, a horror start welcomed Team India as they lost Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw & Ishan Kishan early. Suryakumar Yadav rescued the team with a breezy 53 but Wanindu Hasaranga had some other plans. 3 wickets from the spinner ensured that Team India were on the mat.

Chahar earned the Player of the Match award for his 2 wickets and an unbeaten 69 as India took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series.
