Paceman Shardul Thakur picked four key wickets to set up a comfortable six-wicket win for India in a tri-series Twenty20 international against Sri Lanka on Monday.
The 26-year-old Thakur, playing his fifth T20 international, impressed with his pace and guile to help India dismiss the hosts for 152-9.
In reply, India coasted to the target with nine balls to spare, thanks to a fine 42 off 31 balls by Manish Pandey and a 39-run knock by Dinesh Karthik.
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.
Earlier Kusal Mendis hit a quickfire half-century to ensure Sri Lanka a competitive total on the board.
The next match will be played between India and Bangladesh on Wednesday.
