In their tweet, Deepak Chahar and Suryakumar Yadav have been described as the heroes of the victory. India could only win the match on the basis of two fifties.
Virat wrote on Twitter, ‘The boys have registered a big win. It was an amazing effort to get the match out of this kind of tough situation. It was great to see this match. Both DC (Deepak Chahar) and Surya (Suryakumar Yadav) were under pressure, they both played good innings. Suryakumar Yadav scored 53 off 44 balls and never let the required run-rate pressure increase over India. India lost seven wickets for 193 runs at one stage and Sri Lanka seemed to be winning the match, but then Deepak took a historic win with Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Bhuvneshwar Kumar scored 19 not out off 28 balls while Chahar faced 82 balls and hit seven fours and a six.
Amazing win by the boys. Amazing effort from a tough situation to pull it off. Great to watch. Well done DC and sun. Bumping under tremendous pressure. 🇮🇳
