    16.2 straight to long-on for a simple catch! It was pitched up on middle and leg and Tharanga chipped it down the ground against the turn for a high and easy catch to Dhawan. SL three down now 84/3
    8.5 finally there's an outside edge after numerous misses! Back of length outside off and swinging away, good bounce this time, Dilshan goes for the square cut and gives an outside edge to Saha. Umesh breaks the opening stand 31/1
    13.2 he's got the big wicket, Ishant has removed Sanga! It was angled across the batsman, he had been persisting with this line for very long and Sanga edged it to Saha off the back foot as the ball seamed away from him. The umpires are checking for a no ball but it's safe 61/2
    25.1 another soft dismissal - Patel gets MJ! It was a length delivery outside off, MJ drove it straight to Kohli short cover and he's very disappointed with that shot. Does that seal the chase for India? 130/5
    21.1 one more falls, the SL batsmen are giving wickets on a flat pitch! Slightly short of length outside off, Prasanna went back to cut it and sliced it straight to Rahane at backward point. First wicket for Patel 109/4
    30.1 another catch taken, and Mathews also falls! He went for a big heave for the ball that was turning in, didn't quite middle it and it went straight to Akshar at midwicket. Raina dropped one off Akshar in the last over and now Akshar takes one off Raina 144/6
    33.2 excellent delivery with extra bounce and it held its line for the outside edge! Ishant pitched it outside off on back of length, Priyanjan poked outside off and a thin outside edge landed safely in Saha's hands 167/7
    39.2 is that taken at long-on, Ishant is claiming it! Umesh followed the attempted yorker with a short ball, Perera pulled it hard to long-on where Ishant stooped low for the catch. It's referred to the third umpire and replays show that he has his fingers under the ball for the catch. Out is the final decision and it's all over 194/10
    35.2 edges it onto the stumps! It was a back of length delivery outside off, Randiv pushed at it as the ball seamed in which took the inside edge before rattling the stumps 175/8
    35.6 excellent bounce once again and he takes another wicket! He banged in a short ball from outside off, it was angling in as Prasad pushed off the back foot and edged it to Saha 175/9

Match Notes

Up a steep hill


The most runs that Sri Lanka have scored since 2001 in the last 20 overs of a successful chase. They need 220 runs today

Unbeaten yet


India have made a 350+ on 20 occasions, more than any other team, and have never lost after posting such a score

Just out of reach?


Highest target chased down in an ODI in India - by the hosts against Australia in Jaipur last year

Leaky Randiv


Runs conceded by Randiv - 21 more than the previous highest he had conceded in an ODI

Middle over madness


Runs scored by India from overs 21 to 30. This is the second most in this period of an ODI since 2001

Raina likes Symmetry


Number of 50+ scores for Raina in his first 100 ODIs, and exactly as many in his next 100 ODIs. This is his 200th ODI

Knocking off a milestone


Runs Raina now has scored in ODIs - the 11th Indian batsman to aggregate at least those many

Historically expensive


Runs off Perera's seventh over - his most expensive in ODIs

Also cool as captain


Kohli's ODI average as captain, he's hit 3 hundreds in nine innings before this one

Double Delight


Number of times, including this one, India's openers have both hit hundreds in an ODI; this is the second time against SL

It's been a while


Number of 200+ opening stands for India. This is their first in five years, the last being b/w Gambhir and Sehwag at Hamilton (2009)

Strange conversion


Number of 150+ opening partnerships for India, more than by any other team. However, this only the 4th 200+ stand

Steady, but slow


Runs scored by India in the first 10 overs - their third lowest against Sri Lanka since 2001, when they have not lost a wicket

A First


Number of ODIs that Ishant, Umesh and Aaron have previously played together. There are 101 ODIs where 1 or 2 of them have played
