Team India reached the Saurashtra Cricket Stadium in Rajkot yesterday to play the last match of the T20 series against Sri Lanka.
Team India, playing without senior players like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Ravindra Jadeja, KL Rahul, Jasprit Bumrah, is tied one-on-one with Asia champions Sri Lanka.
And the way the Indian team is performing in T20 matches, it seems that it does not require more than two or three senior players.
Although some players of Team India could not perform well in both the matches and due to this Sri Lanka dominated in both the matches.
Shivam Mavi as well as Deepak Hooda, Harshal Patel, Umran Malik and Ishan Kishan performed very well in the first T20 match.
In the same second T20, Umran Malik, Yuzvendra Chahal, Suryakumar Yadav and Akshar Patel performed very well. And Surya Kumar and Akshar Patel were the only ones whose revenge in the second T20 saw the Indian team reach close to the target.
Significantly, the Indian team won the first match by 2 runs with a lot of struggle and lost the second match by 16 runs.
But the Indian team led by Hardik Pandya is fighting very well, which has been praised by the legends of Indian cricket.
