Indian Cricket Team won a nail biter against Sri Lanka in the 1st T20I match. The Men in Blue won the match by just 2 runs with Axar Patel successfully defending 13 runs from the last over. Management would be upset if their star spinner Yuzvendra Chahal was taken to the cleaners where he gave away 26 runs in 2 overs.
Kusal Mendis, the dashing right-handed batter, would regret not being able to convert his start, as he scored 28 runs in 25 balls, hitting 5 fours. The board would make a tactical change by naming Avishka Fernando in the playing 11, as the batter has already scored quite a few runs in the domestic circuit.

Wasim Jaffer on Yuzvendra Chahal
Wasim Jaffer interacted with The Bharat Express News and was asked about Yuzvendra Chahal. Dropping Yuzvendra Chahal for Washington Sundar would be a huge decision as I think there should be a wrist spinner in the playing XI. Even though Sundar balances the side because of his batting and his power play bowling I don’t think that a bowler like Chahal, who has delivered time and time again, will be dropped after one poor performance, I think it is too early to consider that change.” said Wasim Jaffer.

Take care of India
India may have won the match but there was a rare failure of the highest order. Deepak Hooda & Axar Patel provided the impetus at the end of the innings and took India’s total to a challenging 162-5 as earlier the Men in Blue were in trouble at 94-5.
There is uncertainty about Hardik Pandya as he did not bowl the 20th due to cramps. Shivam Mavi, the debutant had a dream debut taking 4 scalps and giving away 22 runs in his 4 overs. It would be interesting to see if Arshdeep Singh is back in game 11 as he didn’t play due to illness.
