After winning the second match against Bangladesh, India continued their good performance, beating Sri Lanka by six wickets with 9 balls to spare. India looked in control of the game but the Twitterati reserved their comedy for KL Rahul's bizarre hit wicket and Rohit Sharma's ongoing struggles.
Brief Scores: Sri Lanka 152/9 (Kusal Mendis 55, Upal Tharanga 22; Shardul Thakur 4/27, Washington Sundar 2/21) lost to India 153/4 (Manish Pandey 42*, Dinesh Karthik 39*; Akila Dananjaya 2/19, Nuwan Pradeep 1/30) by six wickets.

Looking at the excitement level, this Nidahas trophy should actually be named as Nirash trophy#SLvIND— Krunal Mehta (@mehtaitis) March 12, 2018
Hitman failed even against Sri Lanka
The only good thing about Nidahas trophy
This applies to all fans
It's also very bizarre when, Roshan Abeysinghe says, that Sri Lanka fans have now come to support their team, because they realise their team has turned a corner.— Shruti Chopra (@itstarot) March 12, 2018
I guess Sri Lanka fans don't like to stick around if their team is in the dumps? #JustAsking#SLvIND #NidahasTrophy
You mean hit?
What an achievement by KL Rahul
