December 24, 2017  19:55

SL 74-5 (12 ovs) vs India | Scorecard

Kuldeep bowls a rare full toss but Gunathilaka plays the pre-meditated sweep for just a single. Gunaratne then taps the left-arm spinner on the leg side and sprints back for a couple.

He then plays the switch hit as he lofts the ball over the off-side for a four and takes another couple of runs off the last ball.

At the halfway stage, Sri Lanka are struggling on 67 for four after losing a few early wickets.

Gunaratne holds the key, he has played a few good shots to stroke 24 from 19 balls.

Washington, who has one over in hand, comes back for his second spell. Gunathilaka again can't make most of the full toss, driving it down to long-off for one.

Gunaratne looks to play a wild shot before adjusting late to block it on the leg side and then is beaten by a very quick delivery from the off-spinner.

Three singles from the last three balls as Washington finishes with good figures of one for 22 in four overs on his T20 debut.

Gunathilaka is struggling against the spinners and has failed to read Kuldeep's variations. He tries to hit himself out of trouble but ends up hitting it straight into the hands of Pandya at deep midwicket to perish for three.
