SL v IND, Stats: Wanindu Hasaranga's four-wicket haul set up Sri Lanka's first bilateral series win against India in over 13 years as the home team beat the corona-hit visitors, 2-1, on Thursday in Colombo. 

The match was India's one of the worst batting efforts in a T20I game as they could only manage to score 81/8 in the first innings after opting to bat first. 


The 81/8 was India's third-lowest score in T20Is and the lowest against Sri Lanka; the previous low being 101/10 in 2016. This was also the second-lowest score by a full member team while batting out 20 overs after West Indies' 79/7 in 2010. 

It was the first time, India failed to hit a six in a T20I match after batting out 20 overs. They only hit four boundaries; again a lowest. The previous lowest boundary count for India was recorded a day before only when they hit just seven fours and one six. 

Hasaranga finished with the figures of 4/9 - the best against India in Men's T20I. The leg-spinner turned 24 yesterday and became the second player to take a four-wicket haul on their birthday in men's T20I. 

Sri Lankan spinners bowled ten overs and conceded just 33 runs - an economy of 3.3. It is the second-best figure by full member team's spinners after Bangladesh in 2014. 

A total of 163 runs were scored in the 3rd T20I between India and Sri Lanka in 34.3 overs, recording a combined run rate of 4.72 - second-lowest in a completed men's T20I match. The lowest was 4.61 in a West Indies vs Zimbabwe game in 2010.
