The fourth match will be played between India and Sri Lanka on March 12, 2018. But India pegged Sri Lanka back again with quick wickets in the form of Perera, Jeevan Mendis and the big one of Kusal. Also, Sri Lanka would be watching the game closely and they would ideally want India to win the match as the final league game will virtually become the semi-final then.

Where will the Nidahas Trophy India v/s Sri Lanka 4th T20I match be played? A ball earlier, he was given benefit of doubt by the umpire for a run out appeal.India were in trouble with their top four batsmen back in pavilion with only 85 runs on the board.But Manish Pandey was unfazed by the little debacle.

In his absence, Thisara Perera has been named stand-in skipper.

In reply, India lost both Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma cheaply as Sri Lanka staged a fightback. Danushka Gunathilaka started off nicely but failed to last long.

The Tigers' first worldwide win since January however, came after a horrendous bowling display on a flat track which allowed the opposition to score 214 losing six wickets in their stipulated 20 overs.

After earning two consecutive victories in the series, India would look to continue their winning run against Bangladesh on Wednesday to seal a spot in the final of the tournament.

Shardul returned with impressive figures of four for 27, while young off-spinner Washinton Sundar scalped two wickets as India fought back strongly after leaking runs in the first 10 overs.

Kusal Mendis used the crease to great effect to hit most of his scoring shots on his favourite left side.

Sri Lanka's own effort after being sent in to bat was below par.

The mainstay of the Sri Lanka innings was the 62-run stand between former captain Upul Tharanga and Kusal Mendis.

Rahul's end came at a bad time for India and in a freakish manner as the batsman trod on his stumps setting off for a run to gift Jeevan Mendis a wicket. It didn't help matters that the first-ball single had four more added to it after a throw by the fielder deflected off the bat and went for a boundary.
