After the first T20I was washed out by rain, the second T20I became even more important for both teams. India managed to win the match comprehensively, as Sri Lanka surrendered a good position in the match. So, here are the top three things that we learned from India’s T20I win over Sri Lanka:
1) Superb Saini
Navdeep Saini proved to be the key player for India in this match. He bowled fast and was extremely accurate as well. He managed to get his yorkers right, and the Sri Lankan batsmen had no answer. He also managed to touch speeds up to 147 kmph, which is fantastic for him. India will expect a lot from him going forward.
2) Wonderful Virat
Virat Kohli played well with the bat. He managed to spend time on the wicket and made the target look very easy. He also finished the match with a six, sealing a good win for his side. 2020 could be an important year for Virat, as he will be leading his team in the T20 World Cup. He will hope to continue this form in that tournament later this year.
3) Weak Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka did not have a bad start with the bat. Their openers showed good intent, and they were in a decent position after the first 9 overs. However, it was a completely different story after that. The middle-order could not capitalise, and their weaknesses were exposed again. They managed to post just 142, which India chased down easily.
To sum up, this match showed how dominant India could be at home. They chased down the target with ease, and they’ll be hoping to continue this form in the upcoming matches. Virat would accept nothing less.
