Mirpur, Apr 6 (IBNS): India posted 130 for four in their 20 overs in the final of the World T20 against Sri Lanka here on Sunday.

 

Maintaining his good form from semi-finals of the tournament, Virat Kohli shined again with his willow and smashed 58-ball 77. His knock included five boundaries and four sixes.

He was run out in the last ball of the innings.

India made a poor start by losing the wicket of Ajinkya Rahane  (3) and the second over the innings.

Kohli and Rohit Sharma (29) added  60 runs in the second wicket partnership.

Kohli again joined Yuvraj Singh (11) for a 55-run stand in the third wicket partnership to develop the innings further.

Nuwan Kulasekara, Angelo Mathews  and Rangana Herath picked up a wicket each for Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka earlier won the toss and elected to field first in the rain-delayed final. They will need to score 131 runs in their 20 overs.
