Sri Lanka beat India by four wickets in Colombo to level the three-match T20I series 1-1 on Wednesday. Dhananjaya de Silva was the star in Sri Lanka’s win and was also the Player of the Match for his 40 not out off 34 balls. The hosts took the game to the last over to chase down a target of 133 runs. This was a game dominated by spinners from both sides. Sri Lanka’s Akila Dhananjaya and Wanindu Hasaranga didn’t let the Indian batters get a big score and later Indian spinners dominated most parts of Sri Lanka’s chase. For India, Kuldeep Yadav was the top wicket-taker with two wickets while the rest got one wicket apiece. Varun Chakravarthy was the most economical bowler in the entire match as he gave just 18 runs in his 4 overs and took a one wicket. The two teams will now face off on Thursday at the same venue for the third and final T20I. (SCORECARD)
