India is knocked out of Asia Cup by successive defeats

Aggressive Sri Lanka defeated India by 6 wickets in the Super 4 match. Bhanuka Rajapaksa and Captain Dasun Shanaka kept Sri Lanka ahead in the hunt towards the end to take them through. Earlier, Yuzvendra Chahal and Ravichandran Ashwin brought India back in the game. While Chahal has claimed three wickets to open up the match. This happened after the opening partnership between Kusal Mendis and Pathum Nissanka kept India at bay for a long.

India posted 173 for 8 on the board, thanks to Rohit Sharma's 72-run knockoff 41 balls. Rohit Sharma's blazing fifty laid a solid platform for India but the side failed to make the most of it as Sri Lanka chipped in with wickets at regular intervals after the departure of the Indian skipper. Rohit Sharma first raced to his 28th T20I fifty in only 32 balls and then ran amok to tear apart the Sri Lankan bowlers before the latter bounced back in unison. Dilshan Madushanka claimed three wickets, while Chamika Karunaratne and Dasun Shanaka claimed two wickets apiece. Sri Lanka captain Shanaka had won the toss and opted to bowl first in the Super 4 tie of the ongoing Asia Cup.
