Cricket: Sharma, Sundar take India into T20 tri-series final

Washington Sundar and Rohit Sharma were the stars of the show as India comprehensively beat Bangladesh in the 5th T20I at Colombo, thereby sealing their spot in Sunday's final.

Washington Sundar starred with three wickets, whereas Yuzvendra Chahal and Shardul Thakur got one wicket each. (M Rahim 72 not out, S Rahman 27; W Sundar 3/22).

The Indian batsman smashed five sixes and five boundaries to score 89 runs to lead India to a 17-run win over Bangladesh on Wednesday.

"Our effort was there, but we needed someone else to contribute with the bat". "It is definitely a challenging thing (to bowl in powerplay overs) but that is what you play cricket for".

Rohit then had another fruitful partnership of 102 with Suresh Raina, who fell to Rubel in the final over of the innings after a 30-ball 47.

However, Raina and Rohit were soon dismissed by Rubel Hossain in the final over, as India reached a respectable total.

Sri Lanka will have to make a few changes in the bowling department and include Dhananjaya De Silva to strengthen the batting as skipper Chandimal serves his two-match suspension. But in the last over, Raina, who was three short of his 50 at that point, was caught by Soumya Sarkar off Hossain.

A good start by the Men in Green as bowler Abu Hider Rony concedes just two runs in the first over.

Fast bowler Mohammed Siraj also got a game on Wednesday after India made a decision to drop Jaydev Unadkat.

Pacer Mohammed Siraj, who came into the playing XI replacing left-armer Jaydev Unadkat, was at the receiving end of Rahim's aggression but managed to contain the Bangladeshis towards the end.
