    2.4 straight up, and Perera takes it moving to his left from mid-on. Colombo roars as they see Rohit walk back for single-digits. The opener tries to bully a back of a length ball over the straight field, but he underestimates the bounce on offer. Hits high on the bat and ends up a simple catch 22/1
    5.4 what a wild catch, Dasun Shanaka, take a bow!. Prowling at short cover, he sees the little white thing heading to him. He dives, both hands stretched out to his left and plucks it out of thin air. Up he rises, eventually, hands held aloft and soaks in the admiration of the Colombo crowd. Rahul walks away thinking about the small margins in the game, a blistering cover drive has led to his downfall 42/2
    18.3 taken at deep midwicket and Kohli falls. Those wrists, for once, fail him because the slower ball means the length ball doesn't come onto the bad as much as he had hoped. Flick carries all the way out to the boundary though so that should show you the power he can generate with a mis-hit. Walks off with a scowl thudding the face of his bat onto a fist. Apparently 82 off 54 is not enough for him. 161/3
