    LIVE IND vs SL 1st T20I Score & Updates: Ishan Kishan | Player of the Match: I got to learn a lot from the West Indies series. My intent wasn’t good enough, I wasn’t positive enough. I was just trying to keep it simple here – watch the ball and play my shots. Pull is my favourite shot, I enjoy playing that shot. It’s a positive thing for the batting unit as well because you need to hit gaps preparing for the world cup in Australia. I was talking to Shreyas about the mid-wicket region. He said if you middle the ball you could get a boundary. If you hit the gaps you can get two. And it went my way.

    LIVE IND vs SL 1st T20I Score & Updates: Rohit Sharma: I know Ishan for a long time now. I know the mindset he has. I know the ability he has as well. It was just about getting the kind of game that he had today. It was so pleasing to watch from the other end. The way he constructed the innings was so good, that is usually a challenge for him. We were talking in the middle about finding gaps. Very happy with Jadeja’s return. We want more from him that is why we asked him to bat higher. You will see that happening more and more in the games that he plays for India. I want him to bat up the order more. He is a very improved batter, so we will try and see if we can promote him going forward. We are very clear with what we want to achieve with him in white ball cricket. I love playing on big grounds, because that is when you will be tested as a batter. Here you got to use a bit of batsmanship as well. In Kolkata you just needed to time the ball. It’s consistently happening. We are dropping easy catches. Our fielding coach has some work to do. Come Australia, we want to be a great fielding side.

    LIVE IND vs SL 1st T20I Score & Updates: Dasun Shanaka: We were really poor in all three departments. They batted beautifully, read the game and conditions really well. I could have bowled more. We are without two frontline spinners, Theekshana and Hasaranga. The replacements aren’t really experienced. Asalanka was a positive from this game. Chameera is bowling beautifully. He is our main strike bowler but the situations didn’t allow me to bowl him longer.

    LIVE IND vs SL 1st T20I Score & Update: Shreyas Iyer is down for the chat. He says that his start was slow and his job was to give Ishan strike in the middle.

    LIVE IND vs SL 1st T20I Score & Update: For India, the bowling was good yet again, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Bumrah did well in the Powerplay. Chahal too had a decent outing. Iyer went for runs but got two wickets. Rohit tried as many as 7 bowlers and all did decently.

    LIVE IND vs SL 1st T20I Score & Update: A thumping win for the Indians and they have taken a 1-0 lead in the series. To be honest, this victory was set up by the innings at the start from Kishan and then at the end by Iyer. 200 was always going to be tough and when you lose 4 before the 10th with not a lot of runs on the board, it gets tougher. Except for Asalanka amongst the top order and Chameera down the order, there was nothing from the rest and that is not enough while chasing a mammoth score.
