Last night’s India vs Sri Lanka was an action-packed match. Despite the fact that both Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul hit half-centuries, Shardul Thakur took away the limelight.
Thakur scored 22* in just 8 balls with a massive strike rate of 275. His knock included 2 sixes and 1 four. India had lost four wickets in quick succession and Thakur’s 22* helped India get past the score of 200.
He also ended up taking a couple of wickets. He was responsible for dismissing the dangerous Avishka Fernando.
Thakur has the demeanour of a perfect all-rounder and is ideal for the situations when the top and middle-order in unable to score and he is a wicket-taker too.
Let us see what more is in store for Shardul.
