Match Review India vs Sri Lanka Champions Trophy 2017
Sri Lanka after winnin the toss, started to bowl, but the Indian openers did an excellent job by resisting the Sri Lankan bowlers for a long while. Half of the first innings played by Indian openers Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma as both of them played 24.5 overs, but Rohit Sharma lost his wicket scoring 78 runs and went back to the pavilion on the ball of Lasith Malinga.
Rohit and Dhawan gave a very impressive start and built an opening partnership consisted of 138 runs. In today’ match, Dhawan played a stunning innings and scored his century. He scored 125 runs playing 128 balls. India is utilizing the English batting pitches extremely well as they did against Pakistan in their opener game and so on against Sri Lanka on 8th June, 2017 at The Oval.
Captain Virat Kohli, the dangerous man who always destruct the opponent’ bowler brutally went on “Golden DUCK” in today match on the ball of Pradeep. Virat Kohli has not gone on DUCK in any ICC big events including champions trophy, world cup and T20 world cup and 43 recent innings, but today he breaks record. This shows that Sri Lanka made a special and effective strategy to take wicket of Virat Kohli as soon as possible.
After picking up the top order and middle order wickets, the Sri Lankan bowlers successfully diverted pressure on the Indian batting lineup and slower down their run rate that was rising up with high speed. Lasith Malinga somehow worked today and picked up two important wickets. Lakmal, Pradeep and Gunaratne picked 1 wicket each. Yuvraj Singh scored only 7 runs and the removal of Singh from the crease really helped Sri Lanka.
