Sri Lanka’s young spinner, Dunith Wellalage was at the peak of his performance after he rattled India yesterday.

He was good in all three areas of cricket, as he took wickets, did some sharp fielding, and also batted well to scare the life out of India.

After the game, India keeper-batter, KL Rahul showered praises on the youngster and stated that it was a good outing for him.

However, he has also said that the next time they face him, they will take him down for sure.

He was spot on. He got five wickets. He did the job for his team. He looked the most dangerous bowler in Sri Lanka’s attack till I was playing. What more can I say? He got five top-order batsmen out. It was a good day for him, he did well with the bat too. The next time we play, we will go after him.

Meanwhile, Wellalage’s scalps included those of Shubman Gill, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, and Hardik Pandya.

He also impressed one and all when he took a good catch of Ishan Kishan at cover by jumping.

Wellalage wins the Player of the Match despite ending up on the losing side

During the second innings, Wellalage partnered up with Dhananjaya de Silva and together they stitched a partnership of 63 from 74 balls.

However, with the departure of de Silva, Sri Lanka’s wickets collapsed quickly.

Meanwhile, Wellalage was awarded the Player of the Match for his all-round performance on the field.
