However, in a bid to smash the ball to the leg-side to get to his half-century, he was caught plumb in front of Dasun Shanaka.

On the other end, Sanju Samson looked fluent like always however even he couldn’t cross the 50-run mark as he was dismissed for 46 and at 118/3. Manish Pandey was expected to play a big role, however, his knock ended with only 74 runs in three innings.

Talking about Suryakumar Yadav, the cricketer scored 40 runs however he couldn’t kick on and score big runs. Soon, team India collapsed against the Sri Lankan bowlers as they couldn’t bat out the whole quota of the reduced 47 overs.
