In the Super 4 match, Sri Lanka defeated India by six wickets. Sri Lanka maintained an advantage in the chase at the finish to advance. Bhanuka Rajapaksa and Dasun Shanaka finishes the game. Earlier, India’s return to the game was aided by Yuzvendra Chahal and Ravichandran Ashwin.

Ashwin just has one wicket, compared to Chahal’s three thus far. This took place after Kusal Mendis and Pathum Nissanka’s initial alliance successfully repelled India for a considerable amount of time.
