India leads the 3-match series by 2-0. The last match of the series will be played on December 24 at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai

The 2nd India vs Sri Lanka T20I at Indore turned out to be a complete dosage for the cricket enthusiasts across the world. Rohit Sharma, also the stand-in Indian skipper, made sure to leave a mark at Holkar Stadium, Indore before he returned to the pavilion. His fastest hundred, combined with the bankable knocks of KL Rahul and Mahendra Singh Dhoni, helped the team post the second highest team total in T2o internationals — 260 runs.

On the other hand, it was a do-or-die situation for the Lankans. Their top order fought hard, but the middle order collapsed like a house of cards. The day ended with the home team winning by 88 runs.
