Nidahas Trophy: Thakur, Pandey lift India

MNA Sports Desk: Shardul Thakur’s career-best 4-27 and a mature 42 not out from Manish Pandey helped secure India’s comprehensive six-wicket victory against Sri Lanka in their Twenty20 tri-series match on Monday.

Paceman Thakur led India’s disciplined effort with the ball to restrict Sri Lanka to a below-par 152 for nine in a rain-hit match which was reduced to a 19-overs-a-side contest.

Pandey combined with Dinesh Karthik, who made 39 not out, in a 68-run partnership to help India overwhelm the target with nine balls to spare.

Having avenged their loss to Sri Lanka in the tournament opener, India top the points table with two wins from three matches and they take on Bangladesh in the next match on Wednesday.
