India provides another naval vessel to Sri Lanka

Kuldeep Yadav Virat Kohli and M.S. Dhoni

India captain Virat Kohli and middle order batsman Manish Pandey notched up their 17th and maiden T20 worldwide 50s, respectively, to win the match for the visitors.

Virat Kohli, on Wednesday, guided Team India to a historic 9-0 tour-wash in Sri Lanka and created ripples once more in the limited-overs format as he smashed records with his bat.

Earlier leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal played his part by claiming three wickets to restrict Sri Lanka to 170-7 after being put into bat first.

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

India after sending Srilanka packing with a whitewash victories on ODI and Test Matches has begun with a winning note, yet again on T20.

A young Pakistani batsman, Zubair Ahmed, died when a ball hit him during a club match. Captain Virat Kohli himself is leading the team from the front.

Speaking about his own innings in T20I, he said, "I look to back my strengths in T20 cricket, look to play good cricketing shots". Munaweera top scored for Srilanka with 53 in just 29 deliveries.

Dhoni (1 not out) and Pandey completed the formalities without duress with the latter reaching his maiden T20 global fifty off 36 balls, inclusive of four boundaries and a six. The vessel after assigning the pennant number CG 60 will join the Sri Lanka Coast Guard.

The players also looked a little confused as this has never happened during an global cricket match before.

Towards the end, allrounder Udana slammed an unbeaten 10-ball 19 but more importantly chipped in with a 36-run undefeated eighth-wicket stand with Priyanjan to help the Sri Lankans go past the 150-run mark.

The video posted by Sony on its YouTube account shows that when Upul Tharanga tossed the coin, Virat Kohli had called for heads. He talks to young boys to know what they need.

As per local media reports, four members in the squad were in the swimming pool at Villa Palma beach resort at Negambo near Colombo in Sri Lanka on Tuesday evening when the incident took place.
