India beat Sri Lanka  by 9 wickets at Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium in Vishakhapatnam third Twenty 20 match.Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin bamboozled the Sri Lankan batsmen in a mesmerising opening spell as India bundled out the visitors for a paltry 82 in the series deciding third and final Twenty-20 International to lead 2-1 cricket match, here today.

Ashwin, who opened the attack for India, took four wickets in a magical three-over opening spell to break the back of the Sri Lankan batting order. The off-spinner was simply unplayable for the Lankans as he returned with exceptional figures of 4-1-8-4, his career best figures in T20 cricket.

Sri Lanka could not even bat full 20 overs and were all out for their lowest total in Twenty20 cricket in 18 overs.
