In a sensational display of bowling prowess, Team India’s bowlers wreaked havoc on Sri Lanka’s batting order, restricting the visitors to a mere 55 runs in 19.4 overs at the iconic Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Thursday, November 2.
Leading the charge for the Men in Blue was the indomitable Mohammed Shami, who masterminded yet another five-wicket haul for India in the World Cup.
The result was a resounding victory for India, as they triumphed over Sri Lanka by a staggering margin of 302 runs in the pulsating Mumbai showdown.
Fans went wild in response to the extraordinary performance by Team India’s bowlers, who completely dismantled Sri Lanka’s batting lineup in the heart of Mumbai.
Checkout the reactions here:
Shubman Gill and Virat Kohli formed a captivating partnership, complemented by Shreyas Iyer’s explosive performance in the middle overs, propelling India to a commanding total of 357/8 against Sri Lanka at the renowned Wankhede Stadium on Thursday.
In the highly anticipated contest, Dilshan Madhushanka and Dushmantha Chameera initiated the proceedings for Sri Lanka after winning the toss, opting to field first against the unbeaten Indian side.
Indian skipper Rohit Sharma set the stage with a boundary off the very first ball of the innings, delighting the home fans and making his presence felt. However, Madhushanka perfectly executed a setup to dismiss the in-form Rohit on the following ball. Using an off-cutter, the left-arm bowler outfoxed Rohit, shattering his stumps and ending his brief stay at the crease with just 4 runs to his name.
