Vishakhapatnam: Skipper Shashikala Siriwardene produced an all-round display to help Sri Lanka women notch up a six-wicket win over India in the third T20 international and clinch the three-match series 2-1 in Vishakhapatnam.

Siriwardene led from the front as she scored an unbeaten 46 off 42 balls laced with four boundaries and one six, after giving away just 11 runs in her three overs and picking up a wicket at the Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium.

Bowling first, Sri Lanka's trio of Udeshika Prabodhani (2/20), Maduri Samuddika (2/18) and Eshani Kaushalya (1/19) produced a disciplined bowling effort to restrict India to 117 for eight in their stipulated 20 overs.
