Dhawan, spinners deliver as India go 1-0 up

Dhawan, spinners deliver as India go 1-0 up

WICKET! Vishwa Fernando is clean bowled by Jasprit Bumrah. But, it is the spin department, which will lack experience, but not quality. But a stunning batting collapse saw them go from 139/1 to 216 all out as India's spinners - led by Axar Patel (3/34) and Kedar Jadhav (2/26) - fashioned a strong comeback. Kohli was left into splits when Rohit Sharma and Dhawan fumbled in the middle.

The ninth-ranked West Indies will be playing a one-off ODI against Ireland before competing in a 5-match ODI series against England from September 19 to 29. Look KL will definitely be playing in the middle-order. We love that the couple is finally spending some much deserved time together. I have never believed in that and we as a team don't believe in that.

The odds remain stacked against Sri Lanka going into the Dambulla game but if they can secure their World Cup qualification in the process, they will think that they have done quite well.

Opting to field, India bundled out Sri Lanka for 216, and then chased down the target of 217 with as many as 127 balls to spare. They had exposed the frailties of India's bowling line-up in the Champions Trophy and there is no reason why they can not repeat that at their own backyard. The squad will be captained by Upul Tharanga, who had a bad Test series and the onus will be on soft spoken Tharanga to lead his troops. For them, this series was always supposed to be a training ground for budding talent and players with potential who are yet to make their impact on worldwide cricket.

Since the retirement of Mahela Jayawardene, Kumar Sangakkara, Tilikaratne Dilshan, Muttiah Muralitharan, and Lasith Malinga, Sri Lankan cricket team has looked an ordinary side which doesn't have the ability to beat any top team.

Justin Thomas Surges To PGA Championship Title For First Major Win
In the final round, Watson shot 2-over 73, while Mahaffey shot 66 and Pate shot 68 to get into a three-way playoff at 8-under 276. Thomas began his move with a 35-foot birdie putt on No. 9, and then caught two breaks on the par-5 10th. 11-13) proved costly.

In Late Night Vote, Senate Shoots Down Better Care Reconciliation Act
Healthcare industry organisations are similarly troubled and have urged a more bipartisan effort. Trump has also complained that three Republican senators voted with Democrats to block the way.

India has been played very good in the limited over format while Sri Lanka has been struggling for a good form. Zimbabwe humbled them in the ODI series; Niroshan Dickwella and Asela Gunaratne saved the blushes in the one-off Test. He wants his team to get their confidence back, which can be achieved by beating India.

"We have got to forget the Test series and the mistakes we made. But we need to start making the effort because 8-10 months down the line we will be solid in our roles and we need to do that as a team". "We lack consistency and that has been a big drawback for us". "We have to work hard and play well", Tharanga said.

In Niroshan Dickwella and Danushka Gunathilaka, Sri Lanka may have found aggressors for the top order who could score rapid runs.

At India's practice session on Friday (August 18), the nets adjacent to the Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium shook with every flash of Shikhar Dhawan's blade.
