On a track that offered a touch tad of address the spinners, the unpracticed Sri Lankan players hurl like tycoons, dispose of one wicket after another yet at the same time figured out how to encourage 262 for nine on account of the late bloodletting from Chamika Karunaratne, which wasn’t having the chance to be sufficient against this current India’s powerful batting setup.
Furthermore, it surely didn’t, India accomplished the objective in just 36.4 overs with 7 wickets close by. Prithvi Shaw, along with his Sehwag like mentality in 50-over cricket, pounded the Sri Lankan pacers during his short stay by hitting nine boundries during a 24-ball 43.
That set the rhythm for Kishan to return in and hit a six off the absolute first conveyance he confronted a followed it up with a square drive which went for a boundry. The short Mumbai Indians man then, at that point chose to utilize his bat kind of a sledge, scoring the second quickest ODI fifty on debut — off only 33 balls — to kill the opposition inside the essential 20 overs.

Veteran Dhawan on his captaincy debut, who astutely moored and let the youthful firearms put themselves out there, then, at that point took over to end off the match during a clinical way with an unbeaten 86 off 95 balls.
That load of long periods of involvement did are accessible helpful as he played anchor job to Shaw in a hole remain of 58 in 5.3 overs and as the second progressed wicket organization of 85 with Kishan in 12.2 overs.
