India Srilanka 2nd T20: India beats Srilanka by 6 wickets


India Vs Srilanka

India completed a comprehensive 6-wicket win in the second and final T20 to level the 2-match series 1-1. It was the local lad and birthday boy Yuvraj Singh who came to the party both with the bat as well as with the ball taking India home safely.
Chasing 207, India ended with 211/4 in 19.1 overs making it the highest successful run-chase by any team in the T20I matches. The openers played some risky stuff early on but still got India off to a good start. Sehwag played his part pretty well with a stunning innings of 64 off just 36 balls. Skipper Dhoni played a crucial knock of 46 in the middle but alongside it was the birthday boy Yuvraj Singh who gave all his fans a big treat with a match winning performance. He hit an incredible 60 runs off just 25 ball including 3 fours and 5 huge sixes. Sri Lanka would feel that their sloppy fielding and dropped catches would have cost them the match.  
It was a high-scoring thriller in which more than 400 runs were scored but the home crowd would be quite pleased that India ended on the winning side. There was no doubt for the Man of the Match award, it's Yuvraj Singh for his all round show in the match. 3 wickets and an unbeaten 60 off 25 balls.
Both the sides will next meet for the 5 ODI series starting from the 15th of this month.
