A winning start to 2023

India pulls through at Wankhede, barely! On a half-paced wicket in the traditionally quick Mumbai wicket, India faltered with the bat in the first 15 overs before Deepak Hooda and Axar Patel pushed the total past 150 with their late surge. An impressive start from India’s bowlers led by skipper Hardik Pandya, Shivam Mavi and Umran Malik meant the home side had put Sri Lanka under pressure with constant wickets. However, Hardik’s counterpart, Shanaka put up an excellent riposte to keep his team in the chase. While Shanaka fell short of his half-century, Karunaratne nearly pulled off a win for Sri Lanka but Axar Patel managed to hold his nerve in the final over.
