Sri Lankan bowlers did really well against India, putting a lot of pressure on the whole team. During the match, Indian batsmen found it tough to score runs, especially against spin bowling. Wickets fell continuously, and even though Ishan Kishan came in to bat at the fourth position and faced 61 deliveries, he couldn’t help the team much and was out after scoring 33 runs.

Ishan was having a tough time scoring runs and facing many dot balls. He felt the pressure building up. In an effort to relieve that pressure, he attempted a big shot over cover during Asalanka’s over but was caught by Dhananjaya de Silva.

After Ishan was dismissed, captain Hardik Pandya, who was standing at the non-striker’s end, seemed visibly upset. He expressed his frustration by shouting during the live match, which didn’t go well for the Indian fans.

Talking of the match, the Indian team scored 213 runs on the tough surface before they were all out in 49.1 overs.
