IND vs SL: Deepak Hooda falls for 9. INDIA need 69 runs in 31 balls

At the midway point of their chase, Team India finds itself in a very precarious position with half of their team still in the dugout and a run rate of just around six. The ball sails over the cow corner barrier for a maximum as Axar Patel makes a strong start with a slog-sweep off Hasaranga. In the last delivery, goalie Mendis grants him a respite by knocking down a chance after a slight outside edge.

As Wanindu Hasaranga dismisses Deepak Hooda for 9, the spinners step up to the plate. With just over 50 runs scored, India now loses half of their side. Hooda attempted to smash this down the field, but he mistimed it and failed to cross the boundary line, giving Dhananjaya de Silva an easy catch at long-on. In a 207-run chase, India lost the wickets of Hardik Pandya, Ishan Kishan, Shubman Gill, and Rahul Tripathi.
The winning probability of India is seeming to be very low as compared to Sri Lanka.

India’s current score is 116/5 in 13 overs.
