If we talk about the match here, batting first, the Indian team scored 164 runs for the loss of five wickets. India’s start proved to be so bad that Prithvi was out on the first ball of the match.
But then there were small partnerships and Suryakumar Yadav also scored a half-century, which helped India reach a respectable score. It was different that the finisher Hardik Pandya did not contribute much in this score. India could not score more runs in the last over.

On the other hand, India also responded to North Sri Lanka in pursuit of this goal. After losing the first wicket for 23 runs, Sri Lanka’s batting disintegrated and one wicket after another kept falling. Veteran bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar showed his swing again after a long absence and proved to be the most successful bowler. He took four wickets for just 22 runs and played a key role in India’s victory.
