KXIP vs KKR Live Score

In such a situation, Team India needs to be careful about Sri Lanka in this one-off match.

Two months before the start of the Test series, Team india with the same intensity till the end of the three formats toured the tour.

They lost the Test series 0-3, the ODIs 0-5, and they have now lost the one-off T20. With 7 wickets in hand, the host team was compelled to flee home.

September 7: Sri Lanka interim head coach Nic Pothas has compared Virat Kohli and his men to New Zealand's All Blacks, who are perhaps the most successful rugby team in the world and are the defending World Champions in rugby.

Being put in to bat first, Sri Lanka made a brisk start to their innings before captain Upul Tharanga was clean bowled by Bhuvneshwar Kumar for five runs. Dilshan Munaweera 53 and Ashan Priyanjan 40* were the top scorers.

The 22-year-old grabbed four wickets on the first day, which shook Steve Smith's side and helped India win and clinch the series. Virat Kohli then took charge with Manish Pandey and guided India to a 7 wicket win with 4 balls to go.

The victory gave India a clean sweep of all formats on the tour, after winning the test series 3-0 and one-day worldwide series 5-0.

Rahul departed exactly three overs later thanks to a brilliant diving catch by Dasun Shanaka at cover off Prasanna's bowling.

Sri Lanka interim coach Nic Pothas believes India are a ruthless side and his team needs to learn from the work ethic created by skipper Virat Kohli. A country that gave the world some of the finest batsmen and bowlers is struggling to field 11 worthies that could do justice to the great legacy that this island country boasts. There were some thrilling moments too. In the process, he became the fastest batsman to score 15,000 worldwide runs across formats in 333 innings, improving Hashim Amla's record of 336 innings. However, after a long time, the couple became empathetic. But nothing went in the favor of Sri Lankan team and fans.

Like in the past, lack of wicket-taking options hurt their chances as Kohli got to his half-century off just 30 balls.
