Indian Cricket Team registered a dominating victory against Sri Lanka in the 3rd T20I match. The Men in Blue won the match by 91 runs and sealed the series. The hosts are yet to lose a bilateral T20I Series against Sri Lanka in India which is quite a good feat.
Suryakumar Yadav, the destructive right handed batter set the stage on fire by smashing a thunderstorm century against Sri Lanka. The batter scored 112 runs in 51 balls where he struck 7 fours and 9 sixes as he took all the bowlers to the cleaners with his attacking brand of cricket.

Axar Patel had a memorable T20I Series where the all-rounder bowled a massive 20th over in the 1st T20I match and almost took India over the finish line in the 2nd T20I with his brisk stroke-play. It won’t be wrong to say that Axar now has cemented his place in the team.
Skipper Hardik Pandya would be quite ecstatic with the team’s performance as the players showed never to say die attitude. The management would be thinking of using Axar Patel as a pinch hitter because the way he thrashed Lankan bowlers was quite amazing.
Feel happier when the team benefits from my batting- Axar Patel
During post match presentation, Axar Patel was asked what makes him happier batting or bowling and was also asked about his performance. “Feel happier when the team benefits from my batting (when compared to bowling). Didn’t do anything different for this series, just that the captain gave me a lot of confidence in the dugout.” said Axar Patel
We do a lot of planning during team meetings- Axar Patel
“He (Hardik Pandya) tells me to play freely and tells me that he is there to protect me. We do a lot of planning during team meetings but sometimes things do go wrong and I just focus on doing my plans properly.” he added.
