Sri Lanka thrash India in Nagpur T20

India lost to Sri Lanka in the first T20 match at Nagpur.

Sangakkara played a brilliant innings to take the team to a massive total. The catching was terrible and the Indians had no clue on how to stop the Lankans. The Indians started off on a good note with Gambhir thrashing the bowlers to all sides. Once he was dismissed, India went on a free-fall that could not be stopped.

The comments from the captains -
Kumar Sangakkara : "The wicket was pretty good to bat on. What set us up was that the two openers saw through the six overs, even though they didn't get off to a flying start. We were outstanding in the first 16 overs, we need to a bit more ruthless and finish them off. Great all-round performance, everyone fought hard and showed hunger to win."

MS Dhoni : "At least we were not missing catches before. We are not a brilliant fielding side, but we are not known to dropping catches. It's getting difficult for us to get into T20 groove. Most of us treat them as warm-up for ODIs."
