India vs Sri Lanka, Asian Cup 2022, live updates: Bhanuka Rajapaksa kept Sri Lanka in the hunt after Yuzvendra Chahal and Ravichandran Ashwin brought India back into the game. While Chahal has won three wickets so far, Ashwin has one. This came after the opening partnership between Kusal Mendis and Pathum Nissanka kept India at bay for a long time. India went 173 for 8 on the board, courtesy of Rohit Sharma’s 72 hits on 41 balls. Rohit Sharma’s blazing 50s laid a solid platform for India but the team failed to make the most of it as Sri Lanka brought in wickets at regular intervals after the Indian skipper’s departure . Rohit Sharma first ran to his 28th T20I fifty in just 32 balls and then went wild to tear the Sri Lankan bowlers apart before the latter bounced back in unison. Dilshan Madushanka claimed three wickets, while Chamika Karunaratne and Dasun Shanaka claimed two wickets each. Sri Lankan captain Shanaka had won the draw and opted to play first in the ongoing Asian Cup Super 4 tie. (LIVE SCORECARD)
