<p>Wellalage took five wickets for 40 runs, aiding Sri Lanka in limiting India to 213.</p>
<p>Hardik Pandya, Shubman Gill, and KL Rahul were all dropped by Wellalage in addition to Kohli and Rohit.</p>
<p>“Virat Kohli is the top batsman in my opinion. I’m delighted to have gotten those two key wickets from Kohli and Rohit. In the post-game news conference, Wellalage said, “I believe my fundamentals and myself.</p>
<p>The 20-year-old said he was going up against some seasoned batters and was attempting to bowl a wicket-to-wicket line.</p>
<p>“India had a great start and the batters were ready. I just made an effort to bowl wicket to wicket. We were able to put India under strain after we took those three wickets in only three overs.</p>
<p>“The ball had turn, and if you placed it in the correct spot, you might frighten the batting lineup. But a victory would have made me happy,” Wellalage said.</p>
<p>Sri Lanka could only muster 172 despite holding India to 213 runs, losing the game by 41 runs.</p>
<p>Later, Wellalage also impressed with his batting, scoring 42 runs off of 46 balls.</p>
<p>The left-handed hitter and Dhananjaya de Silva added 63 runs together for the seventh wicket, restoring Sri Lanka’s chances of winning.</p>
<p>“I just tried to help him. We were reluctant to take any chances. He said that his goal was to go as near to India’s number as possible.</p>
<p>Thursday’s virtual knockout match between Sri Lanka and Pakistan will determine who advances to the final match against India on September 17.</p>
<p>Wellalage thought his team would advance to the championship game.</p>
<p>“So far, we have played four games, and we are pleased to report that we have won three of them. The bigger perspective is that we still have one game left.</p>
<p>We still have a shot to get to the finals, so maybe we’ll succeed, he said.</p>
