India defeated Sri Lanka 2-1 in the three-match T20I series thanks to Suryakumar Yadav’s third T20I century, which enabled them to win the third and final match in Rajkot by 91 runs. India chose to bat first and amassed 228/5 on the board thanks in large part to Suryakumar’s 45-ball century, which later caused Sri Lanka to falter under the weight of run pressure. The visitors’ attempt to win their first series in India was unsuccessful as they were dismissed for 137 runs inside of 17 overs.
The trophy was given to skipper Hardik, who then handed it to the younger teammates as the “Dhoni Legacy of letting the young ones deserve the win” continues. India will be pleased with how things turned out because they had a young team with a young captain. There are definitely areas to improve upon, as Hardik himself acknowledged, but it’s a good start for this revamped Indian team.
