LIVE| 2018 Nidahas Trophy, SL vs IND: Rohit Sharma's men look to continue winning streak

Kusal Mendis scored 55 runs highest for the Lions.

"I think he is a great bowler for our team, he has been doing really well".

Spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Washington Sundar have also chipped in with disciplined bowling and crucial strikes.

The Bangladeshis will enter the tournament on the back of some terrific performances in the match against Sri Lanka. The young Mumbai pacer who is now carrying India's fast bowling mantle along with Jaydev Unadkat and Vijay Shankar is aware of his role in the side and is ready to lead from the front in the absence of the senior bowlers. But if India fail to clinch the win, they will be dependent on the fixture between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh for their future in the competition.

"We needed that win and the desire really drove everyone starting from the players, the support staff and team management", Mahmudullah reflecting on their win in the last game. "And I have done that successfully", he added exuding confidence. The "knuckle ball" (a type of slower delivery) is being used as a variation by a lot of Indian bowlers now including spearhead Bhuvneshwar.

However it was Zaheer, who had first started but Thakur insisted that he had learnt it all by his own.

India had lost their opening encounter of the Tri-Series against Sri Lanka after the bowlers failed to defend the 175 posted by the Indian batsmen, but they made amends as they restricted Lanka to a comfortable total for the batsmen to chase.

India vs Sri Lanka will be broadcast live on DSport (English commentary).

A few players such as Deepak Hooda, Mohammed Siraj, Akshar Patel are yet to play a game in the tournament, which means the objective of sending a second string side has not been served. FULL SCORECARD India chased down 153 in 17.3 overs with nine deliveries to spare as the middle-order pair of Manish Pandey (42*) and Dinesh Karthik (39*) stitched an unbeaten 68-run stand for the fifth wicket. However, they have by no means sealed a berth in the final, something that eluded them in the very first match of the ongoing Nidahas Trophy.

The win, which was India's second in three games, has taken Rohit Sharma and Co.to the top of the table with 4 points. IPL's costliest domestic buy Jaydev Unadkat (Rs 11.5 crore) has gone for runs in all three matches.
