Kusal Mendis brings up a 27-ball fifty with a six off Umran Malik in the eighth over, flashing so hard at a wide delivery that the edge flies over third man. the But the Sri Lankan opener falls in the next over to Yuzvendra Chahal as he looks to work the ball across the line but misses and is trapped in front. India use the DRS to overturn the onfield call of not out. However, he’s done his job to perfection, taking Sri Lanka to 55/0 at the end of the PowerPlay and setting up a robust platform for the middle order.
A six to get to his fifty! ðŸ”¥
