His downfall was not liked by head coach Rahul Dravid, who was visibly upset with the Indian player.

Suryakumar Yadav has been India’s best batsman against Sri Lanka. After winning the Man of the Series award in ODIs, he started the T20I assignment with a bang. The right-handed batsman scored a half-century in the first match in Colombo.

The 30-year-old scored 50 off 34 deliveries as the visitors scored 164/5 from the allotted 20 overs. His innings was laced with five boundaries and two sixes. Before he could hit a few more, he was dismissed after getting a fifty. He played a miscued shot which was caught by Ramesh Mendis at long-off.

His downfall was not liked by head coach Rahul Dravid, who was visibly upset with the Indian player.

It was Ishan Kishan’s 20 not-out off 14 balls that took India to 164. In reply, Sri Lanka could manage 126 runs with Charith Asalanka scoring 44.
