Sri Lanka beat India by 7 wickets in Champions Trophy

Riding on half-centuries from Danushka Gunathilaka (76 off 72) and Kusal Medis (89 off 93), Sri Lanka stunned defending champions India in Match 8 of the ICC Champions Trophy on Thursday at the Kennington Oval, London.

With this win, Sri Lanka kept themselves alive in the tournament overhauling India’s total of 321 for six with seven wickets in hand and eight balls remaining. This also became the highest successful chase in Champions Trophy history.

Shikhar Dhawan scored his 10th ODI hundred scoring 125 while Rohit Sharma (78 off 79) and MS Dhoni (63 off 52) registered half-centuries, but India were let down in the bowling department with Bhuvneshwar Kumar being the only wicket-taker in the match for his team.
