Team India went on to clash with Sri Lanka in the 1st T20I at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on 3rd January, Tuesday. Having a look at the game, Dasun Shanaka, the captain of the visiting side won the toss and invited the hosts to bat.
Batting first, India posted a competitive total of 162 runs on the board. Ishan Kishan gave a good start to the innings and scored 37 runs before returning to the dressing room.
With the other batters flopping in the middle, Deepak Hooda and Axar Patel took the responsibility in the end as they remained unbeaten on 41 and 31 runs respectively.

Really disappointed with the way we finished: Dasun Shanaka
Wanindu Hasaranga and Chamika Karunaratne tried their best but failed to get their side over the victory line. In the end, Hardik Pandya and his men defeated the Sri Lankan side by a margin of 2 runs.
During the post-match presentation, Sri Lankan skipper Dasun Shanaka was seen disappointed with his team's performance towards the end of the game.
"It was (our game to lose). Really disappointing with the way we finished. In Wankhede, you need the batsmen to help you cross the line. I use the matchups really well and that's the reason we restricted India to 162.
It is still the first game and they (batters) are really good bunch of youngsters, they will come good," Dasun Shanaka was quoted as saying as same in Cricbuzz. Besides, during the game, Umran Malik delivered a fiery 155 kmph ball to dismiss the Sri Lankan Dasun Shanaka.
