India Vs Sri Lanka: Rain threatens to wash out T20I in Colombo

Reuters

Earlier on Sunday, ruthless Indians had completed the 5-0 whitewash of Lankans in the ODI series.

It will be interesting to see what sort of combination India opts for.

Initially fifth on the list of most runs in T20 internationals, Virat Kohli toppled Afghanistan's Mohammad Shahzad when he added 32 runs to his tally and then overhauled Martin Guptill's 1806 runs as he touched 59 runs to reach 1807*.

Brief Scores: Sri Lanka 170 for seven wickets (Dilshan Munaweera 53, Ashan Priyanjan 40no, Yuzvendra Chahal 3/43, Kuldeep Yadav 2/20) lost to India 174 for three (Virat Kohli 82, Manish Pandey 51no).

One who betrays won't be accepted by others: Lalu
State Rural Works Minister Shailesh Kumar handed over a cheque for Rs 1.01 lakh to Chief Minister Nitish Kumar. It may well be a matter of time before some leaders from JDU and AIADMK find their way in Modi's ministry.

India ended on 174 for three, with Manish Pandey hitting an unbeaten 51 and KL Rahul scoring 24.

"It was a competitive score, " Sri Lanka coach Nick Pothas said of his team's effort. While Ponting finished with 30 hundreds from 375 matches, Kohli reached his 30th ton in only 195 matches. Dhoni made it mandatory for Indian cricketers to stay fit and contribute in at least two departments of the game i.e. batting/bowling and fielding.

There seems to be no end to Sri Lanka's miseries.

This is being as a sign that he wants to concentrate on the limited-overs' formats and a bid to overturn Sri Lanka's fortunes in ODIs and T20s at least.

Alabama passes first test in win over FSU
Francois threw for 210 yards, but had two costly interceptions that contributed to the Seminoles 24-7 loss to Alabama. The Crimson Tide managed only three points after the Harris blocked punt put them inside Florida State's red zone.

The venue for the one-off T20I going to be the same as the last ODI - R. Premadasa, Colombo.

Sometimes bowling was considered as a weak link to Team India. Their win-loss ratio is the third-worst for teams playing five or more games at a home venue.

For India, young leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal was the pick of the bowlers with figures of three for 43 from his four overs, while chinaman Kuldeep Yadav scalped two for 20.

Upul Tharanga will lead Sri Lanka for the first time in T20Is after being appointed as full-time captain.

An iTunes link to the song from Taylor's Tweet reveals that the song will be the lead-off track on " Reputation ". The new track is definitely VERY different to 'Look What You Made Me Do' and we are loving the vibes it gives us.

Sri Lanka squad: Upul Tharanga (captain), Angelo Mathews, Niroshan Dickwella, Dilshan Munaweera, Dasun Shanaka, Milinda Siriwardana, Wanidu Hasaranga, Akila Dananjaya, Jeffrey Vandersay, Isuru Udana, Seekkuge Prasanna, Thisara Perera, Lasith Malinga, Suranga Lakmal and Vikum Sanjaya.
