    34.4 has he feathered this? Yes he has. Two in two. Looks to arch back and glide this short ball over the keeper's head but the lack of pace has done him in. Just ends up being a straightforward catch to the keeper. Rohit started walking immediately. Double-strike for Sri Lanka courtesy a man with wonky knees. 262/4
    1.3 looks to flay this through the line over point but can only slice this to deep third man. Pushpakumara, the debutant, takes an excellent catch on the move. The ball was flying. The bat face opened as ball met bat, the late movement did the trick for the bowler. 6/1
    29.3 gone! Malinga has his 300th wicket! Not the greatest delivery he's ever bowled, but he won't mind - he's found a way to break this partnership. A full, wide ball, and Kohli drives in the air, straight to the sweeper on the cover point boundary 225/2
    34.3 this time, he's picked out the man at deep midwicket. Walked across the stumps to fetch the pull, this was a slower delivery so he had to force the pace. Hit it well but found the fielder. Pandya has a look of disbelief, as if to say 'how did I find the fielder.' His father is a picture of disappointment in the stands. The Dananjaya drop doesn't prove costly, after all 262/3
    37.4 chipped straight to midwicket. The freefall continues. Rahul's third failure in the series, out to Dananjaya again. This was the wrong'un that didn't spin as much, Rahul picked it and looked to hit it with the spin but he was trying to do so from outside off, only managed to hit it straight to the fielder. 274/5

    2.4 first ODI wicket for Shardul. Not the kind of delivery he would've liked to get it, but he's off the mark nonetheless. Skiddy length ball on leg stump and going further down, Dickwella looks to tickle this fine but the ball brushes his gloves on the way through to Dhoni. He's good with his reviews. Raveendra Wimalasiri was the umpire in question. 22/1
    7.6 angles in a short of length delivery on middle and leg, Munaweera is on the hop as he looks to tickle this fine and gets a faint glove on it through to Dhoni. So another review that has gone in India's favour. Munaweera's inglorious debut is over. Looked to play a shot at every delivery, didn't connect half of those. 37/3
    5.2 KL Rahul with a direct hit at the bowler's end from point. Kusal Mendis had given up. Terrible, terrible mix-up. This was bunted to point, Kusal was halfway down the pitch when he turned back. In all fairness, Munaweera was never really thinking of the run and said no immediately. Kusal has paid the price for his error in judgment. 26/2
    15.6 and he's gone next ball! Not a wicket-taking ball by any means, short and wide, but he slashes in the air, and only a few yards to the right of Dhawan at deep point 68/4
    37.2 reward finally, but not before he's been carted to all corners of the park. Axar does well too, tosses this up nicely, bows it much wider too, which meant Mathews had to reach out to slog this across the line, he tried to but ended up getting a toe-end of the bat as short third man gobbled up the top edge. Axar's reaction tells you he's had a bad day and not even the wicket of a quality batsman is some balm. 190/7
    28.2 he's been expensive today, but he's picked up a second wicket. Or has he? They're checking for no-ball, and it looks like he has juuuust enough heel behind the line. A good ball, on a good length, wide enough outside off to invite the drive away from the body, and then straightens just a wee bit to kiss the outside edge 141/5
    33.6 he's out by a distance. This was hit towards mid-on, Hasaranga was far too down looking for a non-existent single, turned just as Bumrah ran in quickly and fired the throw. Even then, the run-out wasn't a guarantee. But Axar did well to stop the rocket throw and deflect the ball onto the stumps. It wasn't even his call. 177/6

    41.2 helped to third man. This was a short ball, not a very threatening one though. Milinda swayed inside the line of the delivery and simply directed this straight to Hardik Pandya. As easy as they come. The end is near. 196/8
    42.3 simple return catch. Kuldeep has deceived him in flight. Fernando looked for a big, booming drive but could only hit it back off a thick inside edge. 207/9
    42.4 got him with a big spinning delivery. Landed this just outside off, Malinga went for a big swipe, but could only connect with the humid evening air. Nowhere near the pitch of the ball and lost his middle stump. The plug has been pulled finally. This is Sri Lanka's biggest defeat at home in terms of runs. 207/10
