India won the first T20I against Sri Lanka by 38 runs on Sunday, taking a 1-0 series lead. Suryakumar and Shikhar there at top of the lineup saw the visitors reach 164 in 20 overs. Then after, Bhuvneshwar Kumar (4/22) and Deepak Chahar (2/24) took a chunk out of Sri Lanka's sleeves in their pursuit. The Indian bowlers had a good game as well, with Yuzvendra Chahal and Krunal Pandya both taking a wicket and limiting the runs down. Varun Chakravarthy, India's third spinner, made his international debut “Firstly, I am glad that he (Varun Chakravarthy) got this opportunity,

Because twice he was already selected, but didn’t pass the fitness test and was not part of the squad. I think there’s lot of chat about the mystery surrounding his bowling," Laxman said on Star Sports' show Game Plan."I was talking with the Sunrisers batsmen and they are all impressed with the way and the consistency with which he bowls in different parts and phases of the match."He can bowl with the new ball, he can come and take wickets whenever the captain and the team want to break a partnership – that means he’s got an X-factor," Laxman added.The 'mystery spinner,' who established a reputation for himself after the IPL by appearing for Kolkata Knight Riders,

Having previously struggled to produce his breakthrough while getting picked in the Indian team due to a health failed test.On Sunday, though, he had his big day, and even made it extra spectacular by taking the wicket of Sri Lankan skipper Dasun Shanaka. Chakravarthy finished his four overs with figures of 1/28 to get his playing career off to a good start."We just want him to get exposure of international cricket and the only way he can do that is by making him play. So, I’m sure that he is really looking forward to this opportunity, but one thing which we have realised over years is make sure you give him the opportunity. Don’t expect miracles from game one. It is very important to show patience and belief in a player,” the former Indian middle order batsman said.Chakravarthy, according to Laxman, deserves more players to engage international county matches in order to encourage him, and he ought not be anticipated to do "miraculous things" in his debut match.
