View dismissal RG Sharma c Chameera b Rajitha 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
0.2 fullish outside off and that's a wicket for Rajitha off his second ball in international cricket! I don't know if that stopped on Rohit a little. He checked his drive, and spooned it in the air for mid-off to catch diving to his right 0/1
View dismissal S Dhawan c Gunathilaka b Rajitha 9 25 13 0 1 69.23
4.6 gone, and this time Gunathilaka holds on. Dhawan slogs at this length ball, which doesn't swing in this time but keeps going with the angle across him, and the top edge soars towards third man, where Gunathilaka falls to his right to take the catch 32/3
View dismissal AM Rahane c Chandimal b Rajitha 4 3 4 1 0 100.00
0.6 and another! Two wickets in his first over! This one's banged in short, angling into the batsman, who looks to tuck it into the leg side with the angle, but it seamed away a touch, bounced a little more, and popped up off the leading edge for short extra cover to dive forward and take a good low catch 5/2
View dismissal SK Raina b Shanaka 20 33 20 1 1 100.00
8.2 doesn't really matter, because he's been cleaned up next ball. Pitches on leg stump and straightens to hit leg stump after Raina clears his front leg in an effort to make room for an on-the-up drive into the covers 49/4
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c & b Chameera 10 22 14 0 1 71.42
9.4 another sharp bouncer, and Yuvraj is dreadfully late on the pull. Looked to take it from over his left shoulder, and ended up lobbing it in the air, and the bowler takes a couple of steps to his left to get under the simplest of chances 53/6
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c †Dickwella b Shanaka 2 2 2 0 0 100.00
8.4 short, slippery ball outside off, and India are five down! That hurried through and Dhoni, attempting to swivel into a pull, can only top-edge to the keeper, who took the catch over his head 51/5
View dismissal HH Pandya lbw b Shanaka 2 10 6 0 0 33.33
10.6 good ball, follows up with the full, straight ball, and Pandya's front pad, perhaps pushing across as a reaction to being opened up the previous ball, is in the way of his bat as he looks to drive through mid-on. Can't get his bat around his pad in time, and the ball hits him in front. There seemed to be a chance that it might have slid down the leg side, though 58/7
View dismissal RA Jadeja lbw b Senanayake 6 15 9 0 0 66.66
13.1 gone, gone, plumb. Senanayake strikes first ball of a new spell. There's the one that goes with the arm again, from around the wicket. Jadeja comes forward to defend, plays for turn, and the ball slides past his inside edge and hits his front pad 72/8
R Ashwin not out 31 33 24 5 0 129.16
View dismissal A Nehra c Siriwardana b Chameera 6 21 19 0 0 31.57
18.4 back of a length on leg stump and Nehra backs away, looks to whip over the leg side, and gets a leading edge that lobs up and drops down for the keeper to take a tumbling catch after running towards point 100/9
View dismissal JJ Bumrah run out (Rajitha/Chandimal) 0 1 0 0 0 -
18.5 Chameera to Ashwin, oh my. What an end to the innings. Ashwin walks across his stumps to scoop towards fine leg, and ends up top-edging this length ball after the bowler followed his movement. The ball bounced between keeper and the fielder running in. Bumrah was coming back for the second, Ashwin sent him back, and he slipped as he turned, falling to the ground halfway down the pitch, allowing Sri Lanka to complete the simplest of run-outs 101/10

View dismissal N Dickwella c Dhawan b Nehra 4 2 3 1 0 133.33
0.3 and he's gone. Bouncer outside off, looks for the pull, and that isn't the cleverest shot given the line and given the fact that he's watched India getting out to the steep bounce. Top-edges it, and pops up a simple catch to mid-on 4/1
View dismissal MD Gunathilaka c Dhawan b Nehra 9 21 18 0 1 50.00
4.3 another short ball, another miscued pull, another wicket. Skidded on outside off, and it hit high on the bat, went off it without too much power, and Dhawan leaped up to catch it over his head with both hands at mid-on 23/2
View dismissal LD Chandimal* lbw b Raina 35 57 35 1 2 100.00
14.5 quicker ball, and he's gone! Looks to shuffle across and flick, it was on the stumps, and he missed. Ball hits his front pad in front of middle and leg, and I have a feeling this might also have been missing leg stump. But replays suggest it might just have been hitting. He had got a long way across. First replay I saw was from a mid-off angle, and that might have deceived me a little 84/4
View dismissal CK Kapugedera lbw b Ashwin 25 25 26 4 0 96.15
11.3 Given! Sharp turn to hit the front pad as he comes forward to drive down the ground. It dipped on him and he had to reach for it, and then spun past his inside edge. Hit him in front of middle stump, but he'd taken a long stride forward, and I have a feeling it might have been missing leg stump 62/3
TAM Siriwardana not out 21 27 14 2 1 150.00
View dismissal MD Shanaka c Raina b Ashwin 3 6 8 0 0 37.50
16.4 taken! What a catch from Raina! Jumps to his right from square leg to grab a full-blooded sweep with both hands. Wasn't too far from him, so he didn't throw himself at the ball, just jumped sideways and judged it perfectly 91/5
