Match Ended   
201/6 (20.0/20)
123 (15.5/20)
India beat Sri Lanka by 78 runs
So that is it from this game and series. It was as one-sided as it could be. India have started the year and decade in a dominant fashion. Tougher test awaits the Men in Blue as they welcome Australia for 3 ODIs. Sri Lanka will look to put this tour behind them and now go to Zimbabwe for two Test series starting from 19th January. The first ODI between India and Australia starts on 14th January. That game begins at 1330 local (0800 GMT). Join us for that one till then, goodbye!
Man of the Series, Navdeep Saini, says he is getting better with every game he plays and the other bowlers also help him learn more. States he has always bowled fast and he works hard to keep that skill by gyming and maintaining a diet. Ends by saying he use to play with the tennis ball before and he recently started playing with the rubber ball.
Man of the Match, Shardul Thakur, says he believes he has the ability with the bat and his contribution could be crucial for the team. Mentions he is a better outswinger and he always looks to swing the ball. States his team has been really helpful and he does not feel left out and they all are united. Ends by saying he starts preparing himself even before he goes out to bat and that helps him not to play under pressure.
Sri Lankan skipper, Lasith Malinga, says they bowled fine till the 15th over but once the dew came into play, it got difficult. Further adds they did not start well with the bat but Angelo and Dhananjaya did well but it was too late by then. States they need to handle situations better and that is something they will learn. Mentions they do not have a lot of time to change the squad as the World Cup is not far away so they need to learn quickly. Ends by saying the world is using the wrist spinners as a wicket-taking options and they have a few and they want to finalize who will be their spinners in the World Cup.
One of the stars with the bat for India tonight, Manish Pandey, is caught down for a quick chat with Sanjay Manjerekar. Manish Pandey says a comeback was always on the back of his head, he got a chance today and he is happy he could forge a good stand with Shardul and he would continue to push hard and put in efforts. States that he has been batting well in the domestic circuit and that is what was in the back of his head and he had to deliver today and he did so. Ends by saying he keeps working on his skills and on different shots and such situations does arrive where you will need to execute those skills.
Earlier in the evening, after being put into bat, India posted a huge total of 201 which was too hot to handle for the tourists. Fifties from Dhawan and Rahul along with cameos from Manish Pandey and Shardul Thakur saw the hosts reach this giant total. Only Lakshan Sandakan had something to smile about as he picked up 3/35 from his 4.
India were commendable with the ball. They repeated their super showing with the bat, with the ball as well. The pace trio of Navdeep, Shardul and Bumrah was too hot to handle for the tourists. The trio picked up 3, 2 and 1 wicket respectively. Sundar and Chahal had a tough day but the former did manage to get two wickets and must see this as a one-off. All-in-all it was a very good effort from the bowlers.
If the match in Indore was one-sided then we don't know what to call this one. It has been a no-show from Sri Lanka. They have had a torrid time in India and they would look to forget this tour and game as quickly as possible. Chasing a huge target of 202, one needs contribution from majority of the batters but only two players got into double figures and that says enough about the chase. Nothing much to talk about, the only positive for the Lankan Lions was Angelo Mathews' solid batting on his comeback and a fifty from Dhananjaya de Silva. No other batter managed to even score 10 runs.

Jasprit Bumrah To Kusal Perera OUT!
OUT! Run Out! Sri Lanka in the deep end of troubled waters in just the 4th over of the game. Another batter is back in the hut and the huge target looks next to impossible to achieve now. Full toss on the pads, Kusal looks to flick but gets hit on the pad. There is a huge appeal from Bumrah. The ball moves towards backward point and Oshada meanwhile looks to steal a leg bye. But then he sees that the single is too risky but Perera is off. Oshada sacrifices himself and walks into the flame. Manish Pandey charges to the ball and sees Oshada is long way out so he runs to the stumps and dislodges the bails at the keeper's end.
Change of ends for Bumrah.

Jasprit Bumrah To Danushka Gunathilaka OUT!
OUT! Caught! Simple catch for Washington Sundar. The short ball has done the trick and the tactic to bang it in short has reaped its reward in the very first over. Sri Lanka's chase is off to a terrible start. Bumrah bends his back and bowls a 141.4 kph short ball. Gunathilaka looks to pull but is late and ends up hitting it straight towards mid on where Sundar takes a simple catch. With that Bumrah becomes the leading wicket-taker for India in T20Is.

Good stop! Length and outside off, Fernando opens the face of the bat and guides it nicely towards cover-point. The fielder there dives to his left and makes a good stop.

Jasprit Bumrah To Danushka Gunathilaka
On the pads, this is worked down to fine leg for one. Sri Lanka get underway straightaway.
We are back for the chase! The Lankan openers, Danushka Gunathilaka and Avishka Fernando walk out. The left-hander will be on strike and he will be facing Jasprit Bumrah who has the new ball in hand. Here we go...
