India had given a target of 117 runs to Sri Lanka, but the Sri Lankan team could score only 98 runs after losing 8 wickets in 20 overs. Sri Lanka had a very bad start. Sri Lanka’s 4 wickets had fallen for 50 runs and the work of putting Sri Lanka on the backfoot was done by young all-rounder Titas Sadhu. 18-year-old Titas Sadhu, playing only the second international match of his career, took the first three wickets of Sri Lanka. He gave the first blow to Sri Lanka at the score of 13 and took the next 2 wickets within 1 run.
Titas took two wickets in the maiden over
Thanks to this lethal bowling, Titas has made some records in his name in his second T20 International match. Titas Sadhu has become the first Indian player to bowl a double wicket maiden in a T20 final. He bowled the third over of the Sri Lankan innings and took two wickets in this over. Titas sent Hasini Perera and Vishmi Gunaratne to the pavilion in this over. Before Titas, Deepti Sharma had taken 1 wicket with a maiden over in the final of Asia Cup last year.
Titas bowled a dangerous bowling spell
