India vs Sri Lanka T20I Series 2021: Full List of Award Winners, Records and Statistics

New Delhi, July 30: Sri Lanka produced a dominant show in all three departments as they defeated India by 7 wickets in the third and final Twenty20 International at R Premadasa Stadium on Thursday (July 29).

The Sri Lankans claimed consecutive wins in the second and third T20Is to register a series win over the much-fancied Indian side. Chasing a paltry target of 82 runs, Sri Lankans crossed the finish line in 14.3 overs and had seven wickets in hand to subject Indians to a big defeat.

Wanindu Hasaranga emerged as the pick of the bowlers for Sri Lanka in the third T20I with superb figures of 4-0-9-4 and was awarded the player of the match. The spinner was also adjudged the player of the series for troubling the Indian batsmen all through the series.

India's squad suffered a further blow with Navdeep Saini ruled out of the winner-takes-all clash through injury. Sandeep Warrier, who had initially made the trip as a net bowler, was handed a debut, but the pace bowler had little to work with after the tourists' top order collapsed.

Captain Shikhar Dhawan fell for a first-ball duck as India slumped to 25-4 after 30 deliveries. Kuldeep Yadav finished up as the top scorer with 23 not out, one of just three players to reach double figures.
