Sri Lanka scored 138 runs for the loss of 6 wickets in 16 overs. It seemed that they would score 170 runs in 20 overs. But Dasun Shanaka exploded and the team scored more than 200 runs.
Shanaka, who completed his half century in 20 balls in this match, registered the fastest 50 for Sri Lanka. It is noteworthy that this is the second fastest 50 against India. Earlier, Australian all-rounder Cameron Green scored 50 runs in 19 balls against India.
Dasun Shanaka has a better record in T20Is against India. In the last five innings he scored 47*(19), 74*(38), 33*(18) respectively.
Scored 45(27), 56*(22) respectively. He was dismissed once in the last five matches. It is noteworthy that the Sri Lankan captain, who has such an excellent batting record against India, remained unsold in the IPL auction. Not one of the ten franchises ignored Shanaka. Shanaka shines on India because of the fact that the IPL franchises did not care about him.
Indian cricketers including Hardik Pandya praised Shanaka who gave a huge score to Lanka with a wonderful batting. Another thing is.. India need 21 runs in the last over.. Hasaranga has one more over left. But before that, Akshar hit six hat-tricks in his bowling. Surya hit a six and got 26 runs in that over. Shanaka went to bowl instead of Hasaranga. Shanaka gave only 4 runs in the final over and took 2 wickets. The all-rounder was named Player of the Match for his performance. If Shanaka shows the same style of performance in the last T20 to be held at Rajkot on Saturday, there is a possibility that he will get the player of the series.
