India
chose
to
bat
in
Rajkot
on
Saturday
and
Tripathi
was
sent
in
early
after
Ishan
Kishan
got
out
in
the
first
over.

Rahul
Tripathi
shows
his
class:

Rahul
Tripathi
took
on
the
Lankan
bowlers
and
gave
India
a
flying
start.
Although
his
partner
Shubman
Gill
was
finding
things
a
bit
difficult,
Tripathi
had
no
problem
finding
the
fence
as
he
demolished
the
Lankan
pacers.

He
opened
his
account
with
a
boundary,
exactly
the
way
he
did
in
the
last
match.
But
then
continued
his
onslaught
in
the
powerplay
with
some
hefty
blows.
The
Maharashtra
batter
then
had
a
magnificent
over
in
the
bowling
of
Maheesh
Theekshana,
one
of
Sri
Lanka’s
most
potent
bowlers.

He
started
off
hitting
the
spinner
a
sweep
in
the
long
leg
region,
then
a
fantastic
boundary
through
the
cover
region,
and
finished
it
off
with
a
lofty
off
drive
to
yield
12
runs
from
the
Theekshana
over.

In
the
next
over,
Tripathi
hit
consecutive
sixes
of
Chamika
Karunaratne
and
was
looking
destined
for
his
maiden
fifty.
But
in
the
very
next
ball,
another
attempted
shot
over
the
third
man
led
to
his
demise.

But
nonetheless,
Tripathi
set
the
tone
for
the
Indian
batting,
scoring
35
runs
off
just
16
balls,
comprised
of
5
fours
and
2
sixes.

Tripathi
proves
his
credential:

Rahul
Tripathi
has
proven
his
T20
credentials
big
time
and
will
be
hoping
to
get
a
few
more
chances
in
the
coming
days.

Rahul
Tripathi
has
been
a
familiar
name
in
IPL
cricket
for
a
long
time.
Since
his
debut
in
2017,
the
batter
has
played
76
matches
in
IPL,
scoring
1798
runs
at
a
strike
rate
of
140.
He
can
be
a
demolisher
at
the
top
of
the
order,
while
can
also
play
in
the
middle
and
hone
the
role
of
a
finisher.
Tripathi
was
in
the
India
squad
in
the
past
couple
of
assignments
but
got
his
first
opportunity
in
this
Sri
Lanka
series.

He
perhaps
would
be
a
bit
disappointed
that
he
couldn’t
convert
his
amazing
start
into
a
bigger
score,
but
without
a
doubt,
if
opportunities
continue
to
arrive,
he
won’t
let
the
team
down.
