India have started the three-match T20I series against Sri Lanka on a positive note winning the first game held at Wankhede Stadium by a margin of two runs. The hosts were invited to bat first but they suffered a batting collapse and were reduced to 46/3 at one point of time. However, the lower order batters staged a late recovery to take India to a decent total of 162/5. Deepak Hooda wreaked havoc at the back end with a knock of unbeaten 41 runs from just 23 balls.
Responding to the chase of 163, Sri Lanka lost wickets at regular intervals as the Indian bowlers made life difficult for them with impressive bowling. Shivam Mavi picked four wickets while conceding only 22 runs on his debut. Also, Harshal Patel and Umran Malik chipped in with a couple of wickets each. Dasun Shanaka played a lone hand for the visitors with a knock of 45 runs from 27 balls.
