Suryakumar Yadav hits a shot against Sri Lanka in the third T20I.

Suryakumar Yadav produced yet another T20 batting masterclass with a 51-ball unbeaten 112 and powered India to 228 for five in the third and final game against Sri Lanka which proved too much in the end.

India averted a series defeat in Rajkot, beating Sri Lanka by a massive 91-run to take the three-match series 2-1. Young bowler Arshdeep Singh made a sublime comeback, picking up figures of 3-20 after a forgettable performance in Pune where he bowled as many as five no-balls. He was ably supported by Umran Malik (2-31), Yuvendra Chahal (2-30) and Axar Patel (1-19) as Sri Lanka were all out for just 137, chasing a mammoth target of 229 runs at Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot.
