India Won the test series with 3/0, after that they did the clean sweep in ODI with 5/ and now crushing seven-wicket win in the 1st T20I. As usual Virat Kohli followed up successive hundreds in the last two ODIs with another display of ruthless efficiency in a chase, and ensured India left Sri Lanka no crumbs of comfort at the end of a long and chastening month and a half of one-sided contests.
It wasn’t an easy target for the Men in Blue (India). And once they lost Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul inside the Powerplay, it became tougher. However, Virat Kohli and Manish Pandey soaked all the pressure of a run chase and orchestrated one of the most clinical chases. They went hammer and tongs and punished the insipid Lankan bowling to all parts of the ground. The hosts never got a sniff to come back after that and surrendered meekly, like they did throughout this Indian tour. To say that Sri Lankan cricket is in shambles will be an understatement.
Man of the Match and Series, Virat Kohli is all smiles. Says that it’s a special win. Credits his boys for the hunger and feels that it’s an evidence of their bench strength. He is very happy as a captain. On his batting, he replies that he backs his strength and enjoys playing all the formats. Admits that there was pressure when two wickets went down but it was all about staying calm and building a partnership. Praises Manish Pandey for his handy knock and finishing it well.
Final Scores – Sri Lanka vs India 1st T20 Match Result
Viral Kohli, the only amazing batsman with 1000 T20I runs and a 50-plus average, ended his tour with 82 off 54 balls, an innings that oozed arrogance. It was present in the shots he played – an umpire-endangering blast down the ground and a bottom-handed whip through midwicket, both off Lasith Malinga, standing out among his seven fours and a six – but especially in the way he admonished himself, bat slapping pad in annoyance, for little moments of imprecision: for putting too much weight on a clip down the ground and ending up with a single rather than two, for placing a front-foot slap a few inches closer to the extra-cover fielder than he would have liked and ending up with a single rather than four. It was as if the opposition did not matter.
