Colombo sources have stated that almost everything was shut in the island nation as the Sri Lankans observed 'Poya', a full moon day regarded auspicious by the Buddhist-majority people here. However, it was hard to catch a glimpse of the moon as Colombo remained under a dense cloud cover with heavy showers lashing the capital city.
India, having already enjoyed a sumptuous meal sweeping the Test and ODI series 3-0 and 5-0 respectively would love to end their six-week tour by polishing off the dessert. Victory in the lone T20I will see them register a 9-0 sweep. Going by the current form of the two teams, India should have no problems in pulling things off.
Despite rains and muddled grounds, the groundsmen worked swift and ensured a full 20-Over game. Sri Lanka who batted first gave a target of 171 and India in reply scored 174 with 4 balls to spare. For the first time, in Cricketing History, a team has completely whitewashed in all 3 formats of the game.
India's next challenge lies with Australia on September 17th for ODI's. India will face the team at Chennai on the first ODI. Let's hope India continues the good run.
No Malinga for T20 matches against India Sri Lanka will not have the services of Lasith Malinga's "Slinga" in the T20I's as he has been rested from the T20 squad. He already was lefted from the BPL due to personal reasons. Suranga Lakmal has also been excluded. The squad which faced Pakistan earlier has totally been changed and only 6 players have been retained.
