IND vs SL: Rohit Sharma and Co still face Wankhede challenge!

Adjust Comment Print

The 3rd T20I between India and Sri Lanka will be played today.

Sri Lanka's chase looked promising for a while with Kusal Perera and Upul Tharanga stitching a 109-runs partnership in just 52 balls.

Ever since Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav have been preferred by India over R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja in limited-overs internationals, the young spin twins haven't disappointed, especially in the T20Is, in which Chahal tops the list of wicket-takers in 2017 with Kuldeep at No. 13.

According the sources, when Trump learned 15,000 people from Haiti had been granted United States visas, he remarked: "They all have AIDS".

Though India pocketed the Twenty20 global series against Sri Lanka in Indore on Friday, making today's third and final game at the Wankhede Stadium a dead rubber, it will be an opportunity for Rohit Sharma to rock at his favourite venue and win his first T20I on his home ground. "They are bowling well and generally the wrist spinners with their variations are hard to pick".

And the way he went about scoring those 118 runs in just 43 balls with 10 sixes and 12 boundaries, many would have thought that Rohit could well be on his way to become the first double centurion in the shortest format of the game. "We tried to hit out and ended up losing too many wickets", he said. "We tried to back ourselves and play to our best". They have lost both their games here - against England in 2012 and West Indies during the World T20 tournament in 2016 when India were led by Mahendra Singh Dhoni. We have good batsmen, but Rohit and KL Rahul were brilliant with that partnership. We try to learn from our mistakes. In Dharamsala, we were in a position where the team could have folded for the lowest score possible.
