IND vs SL, 2nd T20I: List of records set at Premadasa Stadium in Colombo

Published Date:

IND vs SL: In the second T20I on Wednesday, a depleted Team India couldn’t maintain their nerves against a spirited Sri Lankan team.

The hosts levelled the three-match series with a stunning 4-wicket win, thanks to key contributions from Dhananjaya de Silva and Chamika Karunaratne.

Let’s have a look at the records crested in the match.

This was the first time in a bilateral series that Sri Lanka defeated India in a T20I match at home.

In the shortest format, the two neighbours met in 2009, 2012, and 2017, but Sri Lanka didn’t win a single match until Wednesday.

The last time the hosts beat India in a T20I match at home was in Colombo during the 2018 Nidahas Trophy, but that was not a bilateral encounter.

This was the first time India batted the entire 20 overs of a T20I without a single hitter registering a strike rate of over 130, a statistic that may best summarise India’s performance.

With a strike rate of 126.09, debutant Devdutt Padikkal was the best.

The second-highest strike was 118.18 by Bhuvneshwar Kumar, followed by 116.67 by Ruturaj Gaikwad.

Padikkal set a new milestone by being the first player born after the year 2000 to play for India in an international match.

The 21-year-old cricketer, who was born on July 7, 2000, has a bright future ahead of him, and if he keeps up his current rate of climb in the sport, he’ll be breaking more traditional records in the coming years.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s match was bittersweet.

On paper, the vice-captain scored 11 runs and got one wicket while allowing only 21 runs to be scored.

He became only the fourth Indian to reach 50 T20I wickets; following Yuzvendra Chahal (63), Jasprit Bumrah (59), and Ravichandran Ashwin (52), who all did so faster than him
