Deepak Chahar rhythm bowlers, Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav spinners scored two wickets.
The limited series of Twenty20 matches was rescheduled and the start date of July 13 was postponed by five days due to the appearance of Covid-19 at the Sri Lankan camp after coach Grant Flower’s tour of England’s return from the tour.
Sri Lanka, already under-captain Kusal Mendis and goalkeeper Niroshan Dickwella, has been hit hard by the suspension of three players for breaking the team’s bio-bubble in England after injuring captain Kusal Perera out of the series.
