In fact, in the 43rd over of the Indian innings, there was a fierce fight between Ashen Bandara and Geoffrey Vandersay at the boundary line in an attempt to stop Virat Kohli’s four. Because of this, the game had to be stopped for a long time. Indian physio Kamlesh Jain also came on the field to help him. Later both the cricketers were taken to the hospital on a stretcher. However, Jeffrey Vandersay proved to be very expensive in the match, who took 59 runs in 7 overs. In his place with the bat, Dunith Velalage came in as a concussion substitute, but neither Ashen Bandara came out to bat nor was any update given on his health.
then scored a century
Even during the match, Captain Kohli was seen in tension regarding this confrontation. The opposing captain was constantly talking to Dasun Shanaka. Perhaps he was knowing the condition of the players. All this happened when Kohli’s century was not completed. Later he scored an unbeaten 166 in 110 balls with the help of 13 fours and 8 sixes.
Virat Kohli was the center of attraction in the biggest win (317 runs) in ODI history. Player of the series Virat, who returned once again between centuries, scored his third century in the last four ODIs. This is his 46th century in One Day Internationals. Apart from him, opener Shubman Gill (116 runs, 97 balls, 14 fours, 2 sixes) scored the second century of his ODI career. On the basis of these two strong innings, India scored a huge score of 390 runs for five wickets in the stipulated 50 overs.
