Sri Lanka A finally got a moment to cherish in this tour when they defeated India A in a rain-curtailed game in Belagavi by 6 wickets (DLS Method). With a win, Sri Lanka A has definitely added some spice in the series with two more games to go.
Talking about the last match, batting first, India A set a formidable 291 on the board banking on a magnificent ton from Prashant Chopra who scored 129 runs from 15 deliveries which included 17 fours. Deepak Hooda in the middle order got 53 against his name.
Rain hindered the match and the target was reduced to 265 which was managed by Sri Lanka A in 43.5 overs. Sangeeth Cooray, Shehan Jayasuriya, and Niroshan Dickwella all got half-centuries to their name before Chamika Karunaratne’s 5 for 36 with the ball in the first innings proved the difference.
