Suryakumar’s stormy century
Vice-captain Suryakumar Yadav, like the previous match, had already landed in this match as well. He completed his half-century in 26 balls and then reached his century in the next 19 balls. Suryakumar completed his century in 45 balls. In doing so, he became the second batsman to score the fastest century for India.

Excellent performance by Indian bowlers
The bowlers of the Indian team proved to be very expensive in the first two matches. The Sri Lankan team had the advantage of having an inexperienced bowling attack and the Sri Lankan team scored a lot of runs in the first two matches. But in the third match, India’s bowling attack was seen bowling with discipline. The team bowled a total of 11 wide balls, but it had no effect on the result.
