Mathews to RG Sharma, 1 run, lovely straight push from Rohit, it was pitched up and driven towards mid-on and mid-off, through Aleem Dar's legs

14.6

Mathews to Dhawan, no run, huge appeal for lbw, turned down, reviewed, there was a big inside-edge there, something of a panic review from Sri Lanka, it was a length ball from Mathews, angling across and Dhawan was looking to defend, edged onto the pad

16.3

Mathews to RG Sharma, 1 run, fuller length delivery on off, the batsman dabs it towards cover with softs hands and steals a quick single

16.4

Mathews to Dhawan, 3 runs, beautifully carved through cover point! It was just a length delivery angled across the batsman, but he merely pushes it in the gap with timing. It slows down towards the boundary but they get back for three

16.5

Mathews to RG Sharma, no run, length delivery outside off, Rohit comes forward and defends

16.6

Mathews to RG Sharma, OUT, brain freeze for Sharma again! After patiently defending for a large part of the innings, he charges down the pitch to a length delivery and tries to smash it over extra cover, but it seams in a touch and goes past the inside edge to knock the top of leg and middle. Another start wasted
