934 days since Sri Lanka won a match against India at home. Their last win against India came in the Galle Test on August 15, 2015.

 175/5 a new record successful chase for Sri Lanka against India in T20Is. Their previous highest was 167/5, in the 2010 World T20 at Gros Islet. This was also Sri Lanka’s 3rd-highest successful T20I chase, after 194/4 against Bangladesh and 176/8 against Australia.

27 runs conceded by Shardul Thakur (5 fours, 1 six, all to Kusal Perera, and 1 no-ball) in his 1st over, the 2nd-most by an Indian. This dubious record rests with Stuart Binny, who had gone for 32 against West Indies (5 sixes, 1 single to Evin Lewis, and 1 wide) at Lauderhill in 2016. The world record, of course, is with Stuart Broad. Yuvraj Singh had hit him for 6 sixes.

1 win for Sri Lanka against India at R Premadasa Stadium now, after having lost in 2009 and 2017. However, their win-loss ratio of 0.21 (3 wins, 14 defeats) at the ground is still the 2nd-worst by any country at a home venue with a 10-match cut-off.

2/28 by Washington Sundar, his career-best, in his 2nd match. Sundar had taken 1/22 on debut.
