India had lost the Nidahas Trophy opener against Sri Lanka by five wickets.

"The (Sri Lanka) bowlers took two wickets in the first two overs, that's the damage they did to us".

Suresh Raina too lived dangerously after Mehedi Hasan dropped him at fine leg. Dhawan, on the other hand continued his from the first T20I to keep India's required run-rate in check. Opener Shikhar Dhawan and Middle-order batsman Manish Pandey put a courageous 95 run partnership for the 3rd wicket to lift India into the game. Where India were 40 for 2 at the end of the Powerplay, Sri Lanka powered ahead to 75 for 2.

In the absence of the rested Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, the likes of Shardul Thakur and Jaydev Unadkat need to up their game in the unforgiving death overs. India were 2 down for 9 runs with two of the most experienced T20 batsmen dismissed earlier.

Team India received a major setback when they were beaten in the series opener of the ongoing Nidahas Trophy 2018.

The Indian bowlers, however, quickly moved on from that thrashing and on Thursday restricted the Tigers to a mediocre total on what appeared a batting friendly wicket. Against Sri Lanka, he was dismissed for a nought and with his strike-partner in enormous form, Rohit needs to set the bar high. Soon, Perera was dismissed by spinner Washington Sundar to bring India back into the game.Upul Tharanga (17) also failed to utilise the start he got and was bowled by Chahal.Now with the scoreboard reading 136/5, Shanaka and Perera waited for the bad balls and rotated the strike.

After losing the first game, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma said that the players will learn from their mistakes. They also added 68 runs for the third wicket, which turned out to be a match-winning one. Especially, when the team is not going through a good spell, such doubts creep in but I have urged my teammates to keep those doubts away and step out.

It was the scarcity of support from elsewhere in the order that stifled India, with Manish Pandey (37) and Rishabh Pant (23) at least providing some back-up. Commenting on the new-look bowling line-up, Rohit said: "I felt we've got enough experience in our bowling line-up". We could have been more aggressive if we wouldn't have lost wickets.
