Rohit-Dhawan’s opening stand: The pair, who went on to an explosive start, especially in the powerplay overs, gave India the perfect start to the game, unlike in Pune. Both the batsmen smacked it all over the park and put up a highly crucial 75-run opening stand, before Rohit, who fell for 43 to Chameera in the seventh over.
Thisara Perera’s maiden international hat-trick: The Sri Lankan all-rounder  claimed three crucial wickets in three consecutive deliveries, to halt India’s accelerating scoreboard. He claimed wickets of Hardik Pandya, Suresh Raina and hard-hitting Yuvraj Singh in the 19th over to achieve the landmark. He also became the first Sri Lankan to claim a T20I hat-trick, the fourth in the world in T20I and also the first man to claim a T20I hat-trick on Indian soil. However, his hat-trick too couldn’t bring joy to the Lankans as the batsmen had already done the damage. Thisara Perera claims hattrick against India in 2nd T20I at Ranchi
