India v Sri Lanka Live Cricket Score: Sri Lanka are chasing a 174-run target vs India© AFP

India vs Sri Lanka, Asia Cup 2022, LIVE Updates: Bhanuka Rajapaksa and Dasun Shanaka have kept Sri Lanka ahead in the hunt against India. Earlier, Yuzvendra Chahal and Ravichandran Ashwin brought India back into the game. While Chahal has claimed three wickets so far, Ashwin has got one wicket. This happened after the opening partnership between Kusal Mendis and Pathum Nissanka kept India at bay for long. India posted 173 for 8 on the board, thanks to Rohit Sharma’s 72-run knock off 41 balls. Rohit Sharma’s blazing fifty laid a solid platform for India but the side failed to make most of it as Sri Lanka chipped in with wickets at regular intervals after the departure of the Indian skipper. Rohit Sharma first raced to his 28th T20I fifty in only 32 balls and then ran amok to tear apart the Sri Lankan bowlers before the latter bounced back in unison. Dilshan Madushanka claimed three wickets, while Chamika Karunaratne and Dasun Shanaka claimed two wickets apiece. Sri Lanka captain Shanaka had won the toss and opted to bowl first in the Super 4 tie of the ongoing Asia Cup. (LIVE SCORECARD)
