T20Is

Indore: India wins

Sandeep Dabhekar, SAINI STARS IN INDORE GAME, January 8, 2020: The Times of India


Delhi Seamer Revels In Conditions Primed For A Bumrah Return

What are must-haves for a Jasprit Bumrah comeback match?

Searing, late-dipping yorkers. Check. Scorching 150-plus kmph fast delivery. Check. Variation of pace. Check. Nippy bouncers hurrying a batsman, getting him out. Check.

The T20I at Indore, where Bumrah returned to international cricket after an injury-forced layoff, had all the abovementioned action. But there was a twist in what was supposed to be a Bumrah show. Instead, strapping Navdeep Saini turned out to the show-stopper delivering all the fast & furious stuff on Tuesday.

Saini bowled a 152.1 kmph scorcher, gave away 18 runs in four overs and returned with two wickets. The Delhi pacer yorked Sri Lankan opener Danushka Gunathilaka, crashing the stumps with a 147.5 kmph thunderbolt.

In his last over, Saini bowled a perfect bouncer, the pace of which caught Bhanuka Rajapaksa by surprise. The batter tried to hook, but could only edge it to Rishabh Pant behind the stumps. In between, Kuldeep Yadav too snapped up two wickets to derail the Lankan innings. The visitors went to post a below-par 142 for 9 on a typical Indore belter.

The target was never going to test the mighty Indian batting line-up. Opener KL Rahul, skipper Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer, promoted to No. 3, came good in the chase. With the top-order firing, India coasted to an easy seven-wicket win with 2.3 overs to spare.

If return of Bumrah was the main theme, the sub-plot was Indian openers’ – KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan – battle for earning a permanent slot alongside Rohit Sharma. Rahul looked good to start with. He did the bulk of scoring as India 71 for no loss in nine overs. But leg-spinner Wanindu Hasaranga’s introduction curtailed his free-flow. In Hasaranga’s second over, Rahul (45;32b;4x6) went down the pitch but missed a wrong one as India lost the first wicket. Dhawan, in comparison to Rahul, scored a sedate 29-ball 32. He too was sent back by Hasaranga.

By the time both Indian openers were back in the dugout, the job was almost half done. The asking rate wasn’t much as 57 runs needed to be scored in 52 balls. Iyer blazed 15 runs in Hasaranga’s last over to further ease the required rate. Later, Kohli sealed off the win with his second six.

Not just the end, almost all the things went India’s way right from the start. “Want to see youngsters winning us games under pressure,” skipper Kohli said, after opting to chase. The pitch was a belter, the ground had short boundaries: enough pressure for the bowlers. The two freshers in the side – Saini and Washington Sundar – responded to their captain’s call.

Sundar’s first ball went for a boundary, a reverse sweep from Gunathilaka. But the off-spinner hit back in the same over. Gunathilaka’s opening partner Avishka Fernando charged down but failed to make good contact and Saini took a simple catch at mid-on.

In his next over, Sundar gave just five runs. Saini joined him from the other end. In the next five overs the Saini-Sundar pair bowled in tandem Lanka could score just 27 runs. The choke-up set a perfect stage for Kuldeep Yadav.

Dominant Men In Blue Thrash Lanka By 78 Runs To Win Series

It was one of those days where fans got a return for their money, bowlers got a reward for their effort and Indian team management came to a know what can happen if Virat Kohli bats at No. 6! On Friday, as India crushed a hapless Sri Lanka by 78 runs in the third T20I at the Gahunje stadium here, a middle-order collapse suffered by the hosts was covered up by Shardul Thakur’s late batting blitz and Manish Pandey’s maturity.

The visitors were the architects of their own demise after skipper Lasith Malinga chose to bowl first, expecting the dew to aid them while chasing. But the Lankans were bowled out instead for a meagre 123 while chasing 202. With this win, India clinched the three-match T20 series 2-0, with the first match being washed out.

The game offered yet more twists in the everchanging Indian T20I batting lineup. Kohli promoted Sanju Samson, who replaced Rishabh Pant in the team, to No.3. The wicketkeeperbatsman left the ground after playing just two balls, hitting the first one for six and being dismissed off the second. He left yelling at himself.

The other change — Pandey in place of Shivam Dube — yielded better results. The Karnataka-batsman scored a smart 18-ball 31 at No. 5 despite regular wickets falling from the other end. Thakur made his case in the team stronger by adding 22 runs in eight balls later on.

Shikhar Dhawan (52; 36b, 7x4s, 1x6) and KL Rahul (54; 36b, 5x4s, 1x6) added 97 runs for the first wicket, only to see the team go to 122-4 within three overs. Dhawan had his stars to thank, though. He was dropped on one by Dasun Shanaka and soon came into his stride with a couple of clean boundaries. Rahul, on the other hand, took charge of keeping the tempo up. Not even once did the visitors have the upperhand in the first 10 overs, in which they used six different bowlers.

With the hosts at 92/0 after 10 overs, the middle-order had the foundation to play carefree cricket. However, the solid start was wasted and the next three overs saw four wickets fall. Left-arm spinner Lakshan Sandakan removed Dhawan on 52 in the 11th over, the opener sweeping one straight to deep mid-wicket. Soon, Samson was trapped leg-before by offspinner Dhananjaya de Silva’s googly.

The next over saw an end to Rahul’s innings too. He was stumped off Wanindu Hasaranga’s bowling just after completing his half-century. Two balls later, Shreyas Iyer was gone caught and bowled. Manish Pandey, who came in at No. 4, stitched a 44-run partnership with Kohli for the fifth wicket. Kohli was in his usual elements, punishing the loose ones and using his wrists whenever the ball was near his pads.

The Indian skipper fell coming back for a second run when there was hardly a chance. Off the next ball, Washington Sundar was gone, cutting straight to third man. However, Shardul Thakur’s surprising late blitz of 22 runs in eight balls allowed the hosts to reach 201-6.

When Lanka batted, Jaspit Bumrah got rid of Dhanushka Gunathilaka in the first over and Shardul Thakur dismissed Avishka Fernando. Manish Pandey’s quick thinking got Oshada Fernando run out to leave the visitors reeling at 26/4 in the fourth over. Navdeep Saini got his first wicket after castling Kusal Perera. Angelo Matthews and Dhananjaya de Silva added 68, but that was the only high point for Lanka.
