ASHWIN BAMBOOZLES SRI LANKA TO WRAP UP T20 SERIES

1.R. Ashwin’s best spell ever sent Sri Lanka crashing to its lowest total in the Twenty20 format and set the course for India to win the third and deciding match by nine wickets and wrap up the series 2-1. Sri Lanka’s previous lowest was 87 against Australia at Bridgetown in the 2010 World Twenty20.

3.M.S. Dhoni won the toss and decided that India would bowl first for the first time in the series. He kept faith in the team that played the last two matches while Sri Lanka made three changes but put up a much poor show.
