Navdeep Saini is the Player of the Match

Saini: 
The reason of doing well is I was back in the T20 team after such a long time, that's why I felt quite confident. Bowler must be confident, variations and all are important but the bowler must be confident to execute his plans. I preferred the wicket with the yorker, I carried it out better than my expectations. As I am playing with the white ball I am gaining confidence with the red ball as well and I have been practicing hard. When I had debuted in T20 I thought the pace would be enough for me but I have realised the importance of variations.

22:33 (IST)

Virat Kohli, India captain: Very happy. Clinical performance. We have gone from strength to strength. It is about ticking the boxes regularly. Today was a good example of how we play. Very good sign for the team as we did not have Rohit. Brilliant he was Navdeep. He is getting more and more confident. Good to have Jasprit back as well. He is bowling with pace again. Prasidh Krishna is also a good option, we have enough fast bowling options keeping World Cup in mind. It is all about match ups when it comes to spin bowling as well. Beautiful surface. We bowled well. We kept getting wickets which did not allow them to get to 175 which is a par score here. KL went off from the start. You want to see guys stepping up and playing under pressure. Me going in at 4, I need to do that regularly too. I want to play at 3 and 4 both to figure out my game as well. 

22:30 (IST)

Lasith Malinga, Sri Lanka captain: I thought we were lacking about 25 runs. We wanted 160 or so. The bowlers did a very good job. I think he (Udana) is our main bowler and just before bowling, he got injured. We have to give all the opportunities. Angie has got good experience. We will try to win the next game as it is important for the younger players also to get into winning way.

22:20 (IST)

A professional display for India in this game, results in a comfortable victory. Actually, at the halfway stage the target seemed at least 25 runs below par. Nevertheless, in the run-chase, after Rahul got out, Dhawan should have stayed till the end and finished this off. Remember, he along with Rahul fighting for one available opener's slot in this Indian T20I team. From this point of view, both should consider this as a missed opportunity. Apart from that, it has been a clinical show for the hosts.

India win by seven wickets and 15 balls to spare. India lead the three match series 1-0.

Virat Kohli adds the finishing touch! He sends the short ball around his midriff flying over backward square leg boundary for a huge six with a scrumptious pull shot and that's that. India take unassailable lead in the series. Sri Lanka will have a lot to ponder over before the final T20I. India never really looked out of sorts during the chase. Professional win. KL Rahul set it up. Dhawan was a slightly rusty but got good amount of time in the middle. Shreyas Iyer played his part perfectly before holing out in what turned to be the final over of the match and Kohli as usual remained unbeaten to see India home.

OUT! Lahiru Kumara bowls a quick bumper and Shreyas Iyer doesn't hold back. He goes for the big pull but doesn't middle it. Finds the man in the deep. Won't affect the result but a wicket for Kumara to celebrate.

Preview: The India vs Sri Lanka series didn't get off to the best of starts after the first T20I in Guwahati was called off due to wet ground conditions.

It was the Assam Association's mismanagement that came under the scanner as they couldn't get the match started despite the rain stopping long back. The water seeped through the covers and entered the pitch which created damp patches and hence was deemed unfit for the match. In what ended as a tragicomedy, hairdryers and steam irons were used to dry the pitch and it became a butt of joke on social media.

The action now shifts to the Holkar Stadium in Indore for the 2nd T20I and both the teams will look to get off to a positive start. Sri Lanka will be more desperate to get onto the field as it provides them a good chance to test themselves against a formidable Indian side ahead of the T20 World Cup later in the year.

Jasprit Bumrah will have to wait for his return from a long injury lay-off and now all eyes will be on him as he gets back to action. Also under spotlight will be Shikhar Dhawan who's been plagued by injuries and looking to seal the opening spot amidst competition with KL Rahul who's been in good form. It's a chance for the likes of Shardul Thakur and Navdeep Saini to further establish their credentials in the pace department.

Sri Lanka have had an mixed last few months. They clean-swept Pakistan 3-0 in Pakistan and then suffered a 0-3 defeat against Australia away from home. They will be looking to get back to winning ways. They have never won a bilateral T20I series against India so they would look to turn a corner this time around.
