India outdone by Sri Lanka in powerplay, says Shikhar Dhawan
Indian cricket team opener Shikhar Dhawan credited Sri Lanka’s performance in the powerplay overs as the decisive factor behind their win in the opening match of the Nidahas Trophy 2018 T20 tri-series in Colombo on Tuesday. “Yes, I think the powerplay made a difference. The way Kusal scored that 33 runs in that over. Because after six overs they were 72 or something. So those 25 runs made the difference. But then again, we came back in the game. But the Sri Lankan boys played very well today,” Dhawan said.
