Sri Lanka will need exactly 200 to win this first T20I in Lucknow. It is a huge target built on the dazzling efforts of Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer; crucial knocks for both of them as they look to solidify their places in this lineup. Kishan didn't have the best of runs against West Indies, but came out firing on all cylinders here today, getting India off to a flier in the powerplay. He was the aggressor in the opening partnership with Rohit that was worth 111, during which Rohit went past Martin Guptill and Virat Kohli to become the leading run-scorer in the shortest format.
