India wins the 1st T20I against SL; goes 1-0 up in the 3 match series

India have won the first T20I match against Sri Lanka in a three-match Paytm series.

Rohit Sharma’s winning record has continued to accelerate against the visiting teams. Earlier, the Rohit-led side wrapped up the ODI series against West Indies 3-0 and continued the streak with a 3-0 whitewash against the West Indies in T20I. However, the Sri Lankan team never looked promising from the ball one when the hosts put up a massive total of 199 to be chased on a pitch that offered low bounce and dicey swing. India has been without the services of Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, and Rishab Pant. Chasing a tall score, Sri Lanka could only put up 137/6 while chasing 199/2 put up by India.
