India on Thursday trounced Sri Lanka by 168 runs in the league tie of the T20 World Cup for the blind, registering its fourth win on the trot in the tournament.

Put into bat first by the Sri Lankans, as is the norm by teams winning the toss in the blind cricket format, India piled up 300 runs for four wickets in the stipulated 20 overs at the Central College grounds in the city centre.

In-form Indian batter Prakash Jayaramaiah, who has partial vision, hammered his third century in the tournament, by waltzing into the Lankan bowling, hitting 33 boundaries in a hurricane knock of 149 off 54 balls, while his partner Ganeshbahi Bushara (partially blind) belted 53 off 22 balls in an aggressive batting display.

Chasing an imposing target of 301, Lanka was bowled out for 132 runs.IANS
