Minod Bhanuka proved the binding glue as Sri Lanka paced their chase well to take the T20I series against India into the decider. His sharp 36 off 31 balls in the second T20I was erected on the pillars of calculated risk-taking and intelligent shot selection.

The baton was then relayed to sheet anchor Dhananjaya de Silva, who compiled an unbeaten 40 to steer the islanders home. The third and final T20I will be played on Thursday, July 29, at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo.
