Soumya Sarkar might have only played three ODI’s till now, but he has shown plenty of promise.

He scored only 25 off 15 balls, and ultimately the Tigers went down by a big marging, but Soumya still hit five seetly times boundaries, one of them straight and four on the off side.
In one Lakmal over, he hit the lanky pace man for three consecutive boundaries, but got out to Mathews, edging to Kumar Sangakkara.
However, his short stay at the crease must lave made the Lankan bowlers nervous, at least for a while.
