View dismissal LD Chandimal c †Dhoni b Nehra 4 10 11 1 0 36.36
2.2 85.6 mph, gone. Chandimal's exuberant slog doesn't work. Nehra bangs it on a good length on leg, Chandimal backs away and comes down, looking to go over midwicket but gets a thin inside edge on its way to the keeper. Had he stayed in his normal stance, it would have been a bad ball on his hips with short fine leg up but Chandimal looked to go hard and pays the price. 6/1
View dismissal TM Dilshan c Ashwin b Pandya 18 31 16 2 0 112.50
6.1 82.4 mph, taken. The big wicket of Dilshan. Pandya strikes with his first ball. A well-directed bouncer on middle and Dilshan pulls, but fails to keep it down. Goes straight down Ashwin's throat at fine leg. 31/3
View dismissal DSNFG Jayasuriya c †Dhoni b Bumrah 3 6 5 0 0 60.00
3.4 86.6 mph, late appeal and gone. Terrific delivery that, Dhoni collects and belatedly appeals. Good length, top-of-off. Jayasuriya pokes at it away from his body and gets the thinnest of snicks through to the keeper. Audible sound and given. Could have only been the bat 15/2
View dismissal CK Kapugedera c Pandya b Bumrah 30 59 32 3 0 93.75
17.2 84.1 mph, taken. Wow, what sweet timing, but he has picked out sweeper cover to perfection. Full delivery outside off, Kapugedara smashes an inside-out drive with amazing timing and it carries to Pandya at sweeper cover who takes a really good catch, backtracking. 105/7
View dismissal AD Mathews* b Pandya 18 17 19 3 0 94.73
10.6 85.2 mph, big big wicket this. Full outside off, Mathews brings an angled bat down late and gets a thick inside edge which clatters into the stumps. The crucial wicket of Mathews just when he was looking to explode. How much will that effect SL? 57/4
View dismissal TAM Siriwardana c Raina b Ashwin 22 19 17 1 1 129.41
16.1 54.0 mph, taken. Tossed up on off, Siriwardana clears one foot and launches it high in the air towards long-on where Raina settles under it to take an easy catch. 100/5
View dismissal MD Shanaka run out (Sharma/Ashwin) 1 2 4 0 0 25.00
16.6 from Ashwin, low full toss on middle, slogged away to midwicket. And that looks out. Rohit returns a good throw and Shanaka is well short. Out of a free hit. What a way to go. Well done by Rohit too 104/6
View dismissal NLTC Perera st †Dhoni b Ashwin 17 9 6 2 1 283.33
18.5 57.3 mph, lovely bowling. Sees Perera advancing and bowls it very slow but very wide outside off. So wide that it is called a wide. Perera comes down but fails to connect with a big heave, wrong shot selection to that ball. But Dhoni whips off the bails in a jiffy and the umpire doesn't need the help of his upstairs colleague. 125/8
View dismissal KMDN Kulasekara run out (Kohli/†Dhoni) 13 14 9 2 0 144.44
19.6 from Nehra, smashed away towards deep midwicket. Full toss on middle and Kulasekara slogs it away to deep midwicket. The throw is quick and Dhoni takes off the bails again. This time, Kulasekara is well out. 138/9

View dismissal S Dhawan c †Chandimal b Kulasekara 1 9 3 0 0 33.33
1.6 78.4 mph, got him, excellent delivery. Slanting across into the corridor, the length is just right, and Dhawan is late getting forward to push into the covers, his front foot is still landing on its heel when the ball kisses his outside edge through to the keeper 11/1
View dismissal RG Sharma c Kapugedera b Kulasekara 15 15 14 3 0 107.14
3.2 78.7 mph, got him! Beautiful length, and he shifted his line slightly wider to entice the drive away from the body. Goes for the drive on the up, it seams away slightly - just about straightens - and the nick is pouched nicely by Kapugedera at slip, with two hands, a couple of inches above the ground 16/2
V Kohli not out 56 85 47 7 0 119.14
View dismissal SK Raina c Kulasekara b Shanaka 25 35 26 2 0 96.15
11.1 78.5 mph, length ball on middle and leg, and Shanaka has struck first ball! Looks to step inside the line and hit over mid-off, the ball is a little shorter than he thought, and it hits high on the bat and loops high in the air, and is caught on the juggle by mid-off 70/3
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c Kulasekara b Perera 35 30 18 3 3 194.44
16.5 83.6 mph, digs it in short now, and that's a well-directed bouncer. Yuvraj takes his eye off the ball a little while swiveling to hook, and top-edges to the man at fine leg 121/4
View dismissal HH Pandya b Herath 2 3 4 0 0 50.00
17.5 58.7 mph, bowled him! Herath has just worked Pandya over here. Bowled it much quicker, on a good length, and got it to straighten. Pandya's front shoulder opens up again as he looks to whip across the line, and the ball beats his outside edge and pegs back off stump 125/5
