The third T20I between India and Sri Lanka has now tilted towards the hosts as the Men in Blue have backed up their incredible batting display with a solid bowling performance. But the moment of the second innings has been a brilliant running catch by youngster Shivam Mavi off Yuzvendra Chahal's bowling.
The leg spinner bowled a wide-ish shot ball which seem destined to go for a boundary but a sprinting Mavi turned this poor delivery into a wicket. The Gujarat Titans seamer covered a lot of ground to his left from sweeper cover and took a very sharp catch near the rope. The catch was so incredible, that Indian captain Hardik Pandya couldn't stop appreciating the pacer's effort.

The star of the inning was Arshdeep Singh as he picked up three wickets while giving away just 20 runs in 2.4 overs.
This performance was crucial for the Punjab Kings pacer as he had a forgettable second T20I. In Pune, Singh bowled just two overs where he gave away 37 runs while bowling five no-balls. Coming back to this fixture, the one true star was Suryakumar Yadav as he smashed a 45-ball century.
