New Delhi: Under the captaincy of Shikhar Dhawan, a young Indian team defeated Sri Lanka by 7 wickets in the first match of the three-match series. In this match every single batsman of the team showed amazing performance. Apart from captain Dhawan, opening batsmen Prithvi Shaw and Ishan Kishan also played excellent innings. But there is also a player whose card can be cut from tomorrow’s match.
batsmen did wonders
Team India, chasing the target of 263 runs given by Sri Lanka, showed a great game. Prithvi Shaw, who came out to open, played a quick innings of 43 runs in 24 balls. Apart from this, captain Shikhar Dhawan played an innings of 86 not out. Apart from this, Ishan Kishan scored 59 runs. While Suryakumar Yadav scored 31 not out. With this, India has gone 1-0 ahead in this series.
This batsman may be out
While on one hand all the batsmen of the team showed a wonderful game, once again Manish Pandey disappointed everyone. In the first match against Sri Lanka, Pandey scored only 26 runs from 40 balls. He was the only Indian batsman in the first ODI whose performance was not very special. Therefore, the selectors can also place Nitish Rana at number four in his place.
All eyes will be on Bhuvi too
On the other hand, if we talk about the Indian bowlers, they bowled brilliantly and did not give much chance to the Sri Lankan batsmen to settle down. Kuldeep Yadav, Deepak Chahar and Yuzvendra Chahal took 2-2 wickets for India. At the same time, Krunal Pandya and Hardik Pandya took one wicket each. But the performance of the team’s senior most bowler and vice-captain Bhuvneshwar Kumar was not very special. He gave 63 runs in 9 overs and did not even get a wicket.
