One thing is for sure, I do not think we will see more of Pandey and Samson. Both got the opportunities and both failed. Its ok, not every great domestic player tends to be good internationally.

A loss largely due to slow batting and Samson's missed chances along with Bhuvi giving in 12 runs in the crucial 19th over.

Great victory for Sri Lanka. And that man Chamika once again appeared at a crucial time for them!!! :cheers

This series should come as a massive eye opener for Sri Lankan cricket, as to where they are and what they need to do! It would be incredibly stupid if Sri Lanka dont use this opportunity to assess their stocks and work on improvement. India's "B Team from a B squad" have stretched Sri Lanka to 19.4 overs.

Also - what is the criteria behind deciding "who is in close contact with a COVID positive player, and who is NOT"? Krunal has been with the tour squad since beginning and it makes me scratch my head as to how the XI guys who played today, were considered to be "not in close contact with Krunal Pandya". Genuine question!

I believe maybe you aren't following Sri Lanka Cricket off late. This Sri Lankan team is only as strong as a Mumbai or Karnataka in the Ranji trophy. And they can possibly compete better with them.

Also the fact that they are missing some of their key players in this series for breaching Covid protocols in England. If I were to be a Sri Lankan supporter I would still be happy with this victory. But no doubt they need to improve for sure.

THIS x1000.

Sri Lankan fans as far as I'm aware are actually pleasantly surprised with their team's progress. Sure, they would wish for better fortunes. But this is still a marked improvement on the drudgery they were subjected to until recently, at least this side has some fight and spirit in it.

And calling this Indian side a 'Z team' is a bit disingenious given the ludicrous strength in depth of the side. There are multiple centurions in the strongest T20 league in this XI, a bowler with the best T20I figures, the only bowler to have been the highest wicket-taker in two seasons of the same league in addition to blokes like Kuldeep, Chakravarthy, Gaikwad and Rana.

SL on a verge of series victory. I don't see India scoring more than 140 with this approach. Although Ruturaj Gayakwad is looking really confident over here.

Blame the Indian team management for not properly managing the the players amidst the pandemic. Nothing but the Covid positive case that cost India the series.

A big boost for SL when they win the series. They'll take a lot of confidence from beating a strong and well respected cricketing unit that is known in general as "Team India", even though on surface level they've had to play the most depleted team that could be assembled without calling off the series altogether. Either way, cricket has been missing a confident and competitive SL unit , hope they can build a decent team and bring back a couple experienced guys like K Perera, Mathews, Chandimal to support their young team.

Hopefully for Sri Lanka every team they play only has five batsman.
