INDORE, Dec 22: A good all-round performance helped India beat Sri Lanka by 88 runs in the second Twenty-20 International at the Holkar Cricket Stadium here on Friday.

Skipper Rohit Sharma, who blasted a 35-ball century, propelled India to a mammoth 260, the joint-second highest T20I total. In reply, Sri Lankan batsmen struggled and were dismissed for 172, losing the series 0-2.

For India, spinners Yuzvendra Chahal (4/52) and Kuldeep Yadav (3/52) were the most successful bowlers.

Chasing 261, the visitors started off on a positive note as openers Niroshan Dickwella (25) Upul Tharanga (47) added 36 runs in 4.3 overs before Dickwella was dismissed by pacer Jaydev Unadkat. His 19-ball innings ended through a good catch by Hardik Pandya.

Incoming batsman Kusal Perera (77) then joined Tharanga. The duo played sensibly and played the ball to its merit. They also punished the bad balls to forge a 109-run partnership for the second wicket.

But just when things seemed good in the middle for the visitors, Tharanga top-edged the ball which was perfectly caught by spinner Yuzvendra Chahal in the 14th over. His 29-ball innings was laced with three boundaries and two sixes. � PTI
