Indian bowlers have been brilliant today as they comfortably restricted the Sri Lankan team for such a low total. Srilankan batters were not able to get the carry away and they were giving away the wickets. They only managed to score 303 runs in their slot of 50 overs.
A Sri Lankan batter Carith Asalanka gave away his wicket easily as he was not out at that time. Umran Malik bowled a ball on the leg side in the 14th over. He tried to play a shot and then the keeper appealed for his wicket and the umpire gave him out.
