India climbed to the top of the Nidahas Trophy table with a six-wicket victory inspired by Shardul Thakur and Manish Pandey in Colombo on Monday.

Sri Lanka gave the target of a total of 152-9 to India in their second encounter of the Nidahas Trophy tri-series.

The match was reduced to 19-overs a side after the start was delayed by about an hour due to rains and a wet outfield. India will next face Bangladesh on Wednesday, whereas Sri Lanka will face the same opponents later on Friday.

Sri Lanka got their campaign off to a stunning start when they beat tournament favourites India in the opener by five wickets. Team India, under the leadership of Rohit Sharma, has failed to perform collectively and it has largely been a hot-and-cold show so far. Shikhar Dhawan had his first failure of 2018 in T20Is, lobbing a catch to mid-on off Dananjaya.

The 26-year-old Thakur, playing his fifth T20 worldwide, impressed with his pace and guile to help India dismiss the hosts for 152-9.

Tiger Woods: I'm finding the rhythm of the rounds, I'm hitting shots
Asked how he felt being in contention for a first victory in nearly five years, Woods added: "It felt very comfortable ". I wasn't as sharp as I wanted to be. "It was one of those days I kept getting a half-club".

Both the teams made one change each-Suranga Lakmal came in for Chandimal, while Rishabh Pant made way for K.L. Rahul.

But thereafter, Pandey and Karthik ensured there were no more hiccups as they stitched unbeaten 68 runs for the fifth wicket to guide India home comfortably.

Bangladesh captain Mahmudullah has also received a 20 per cent fine of his match fee, while each of his players have received 10 per cent fines after their side was ruled to be one over short.

After 7 overs: India lost another wicket of Suresh Raina, scored 63 runs. Spinners Washington Sundar (2/21) and Yuzvendra Chahal (1/34) scalped three wickets.

Left-arm pacer Unadkat was taken to the cleaners as he gave away 15 runs in the first over.

In the next over, Sundar (2-21) castled the unsafe Kusal Perera (3) but Kusal Mendis (55) helped the innings get back on track scoring three boundaries and two sixes to take the home side to 94 for two at the halfway mark.
