Our openers Kusal Mendis and Pathum Nissanka put on a remarkable 80 run partnership and that paved the way to build up a challenging total of 206 said Sri Lanka cricket Skipper Dasun Shanaka after the second T 20 game victory in Pune.

To be honest we would have done better in the middle part because the openers set up well . winning second game against India gives big boost and kept the series alive and hope to repeat that performance today in the third and final T 20 to win the series in India.

Sri Lanka won the T-20 against India in India after eight years while Dasun Shanaka made fastest T 20 fifty in just 20 balls ( fastest by Sri Lankan earlier Mahela Jayawadena and Kumar Sangakkara made 20 ball fifty).Dasun who bowled deciding final over gave away only four runs and took most important wickets of Axar Patel and Shivam Mavi and was adjudged man of the match in this second game.

Actually Suryakumar Yadav and Axar were outstanding but still we managed to hold our nerve . it’s good to defend a total like this especially against India said skipper Dasun Shanaka who is in good form as a batter against India .He is the best batter against India recently making big strokes all round the grounds both in Mumbai and Pune.

Meanwhile Sri Lanka team travelled to Rajkot for a light training session yesterday evening .Today after wicket inspection Sri Lanka team final eleven will be picked said a senior official of the team .This is a very important game to win the series and we will not make big changes today but first we want to inspect the wicket he said .

Sri Lankan top order did much better while two fast bowlers Dilshan Madashanka and Kasun Ranjitha made an early breakthrough and these are the plus points of the second game.
