India vs Sri Lanka Second Twenty20 International Match
Mohali, December 12, 2009
Mohali T20: Sehwag, Yuvraj help India thrash Sri Lanka (IND-SRL: 1-1|2)
December 12, 2009A spectacular finish by birthday boy Yuvraj Singh (60 of 25 balls) helped India win the second T20 match in Mohali by six wickets and draw the two-match series 1-1. A dazzling half-century by Virendra Sehwag (64 off 36 balls) set things in motion for India, chasing a mammoth target of 207 runs, thanks largely to Kumara Sangakkara's superb 59 off 31 balls. Sangakkara won the Man of the Series award, as this came after the match winning 37-ball 78 in Nagpur. The match saw India dropping about six catches, and Sri Lanka missing one run-out chance after another. The Indian bowlers also bowled 17 wides in 20 overs. India would have lost this match (making it the fifth loss in a row) but for the Yuvraj - Dhoni partnership which blasted 80 runs off just 6 overs to secure the highest successful chase in T20 internationals.
Yuvraj Singh won the Man of the Match award for his 60 not out that included 3 fours and 5 sixes off just 25 balls, and taking 3-23 in 3 overs.
India 211/4 (Sehwag 64, Yuvraj 60*, Dhoni 46) beat Sri Lanka 206/7 (Sangakkara 59, Jayasinghe 38, Yuvraj 3-23) by six wickets
