Indian teen cricketer dies after drowning in swimming pool in Sri Lanka

India vs Sri Lanka 3rd Test,Highlights Sri Lanka's rearguard action halts India's charge

India wrapped-up a memorable tour of Sri Lanka with a seven-wicket victory over the hosts in the one-off T20 worldwide at the Premadasa Stadium, in Colombo, on Wednesday.

After Rohit Sharma (9) and KL Rahul (24) departed, Virat Kohli took the lead role in guiding India to victory.

Dilshan Munaweera's 29-ball 53 and Ashan Priyanjan's 40-ball 40* powered Sri Lanka to 170 for 7 after they were put in.

India's spin duo of Yuzvendra Chahal (3-43) and Kuldeep Yadav (2-20) shared five wickets between them to restrict Sri Lanka to just under the 175-mark.

The injured man, identified as Imam Hussain, was taken to Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan Hospital in Daryaganj, Sharma added. Last month, 22 people were killed and over 150 injured, after 13 coaches of the Utkal Express jumped the rails.

The credits rolled in familiar fashion in the end, with Virat Kohli scoring 82 off 54 balls and Manish Pandey remaining unbeaten on 51 off 36 chasing a challenging 171 to win.

They lost the Test series 0-3, the ODIs 0-5, and they have now lost the one-off T20.

Kohli hit seven boundaries and a six before being out caught in the deep with 10 runs needed for victory. It was his fourth consecutive half-century in T20Is against Sri Lanka and in doing so he became the fastest batsman to score 15000 global runs across formats in 333 innings, improving on Hashim Amla's record of 336 innings.

Kohli is already one of the greatest limited-overs batsmen to have ever played cricket and with the kind of attitude, hunger and determination that the India captain displays, he can well go on to be the greatest. But, before all this could happen, the broadcaster has committed a big mistake in displaying the playing XI of both the teams. "If we looked at how we played we were probably 15 short. We tried a few things, the results are incredible to see", Kohli said in the post-match conference.

SA comes out of recession
Second-quarter data shows year-on-year GDP growth was 1.1%, and for the six months growth has been 1.1%. He said that coming out of recession was not about quality but the quantum of growth.

Yes, off the field, because it gives your morale a boost when the captain of the national team backs you through all highs and lows.

As per local media reports, four members in the squad were in the swimming pool at Villa Palma beach resort at Negambo near Colombo in Sri Lanka on Tuesday evening when the incident took place.

"Looking at him, if we can improve our fielding even by one per cent that will be good".
