India vs Sri Lanka 3rd T20I Highlights: Sri Lanka beat India by 7 wickets on Thursday to take the series 2-1. In what was complete domination by the hosts, the bowlers did the job for the Lankans as they restricted India to a paltry total. On his birthday, Wanindu Hasaranga helped Sri Lanka restrict India to 81/8 – India’s third-lowest total in T20Is. Hasaranga’s figures of 4/9 were the second-best bowling figures in T20Is between Sri Lanka and India. It is Sri Lanka’s first series win in T20Is since October 2019.
