1st T20I: India score 164/5 against Sri Lanka

Suryakumar Yadav’s 50 (off 34 balls) and skipper Shikhar Dhawan’s 46 (off 36 balls) helped India score 164/5 in 20 overs in the first T20 International here at the R Premadasa Stadium on Sunday.

The two batsmen’s knocks kept India steady in the face of some disciplined Sri Lankan bowling that was powered by impressive spells from leg-spinner Wanindu Hasaranga (2/28) and pace bowler Dushmantha Chameera (2/24).

Wicketkeeper-batsman Ishan Kishan scored unbeaten 20 off 14 deliveries with a four and a six.
