    4.1 ooh, Lakmal is bowling brilliantly here. Again that away seam movement in the corridor, and this time some extra bounce too, from just short of a good length. Rohit pokes at it and is beaten - or so umpire Anil Chaudhary thinks. Sri Lanka think there's an edge. They've reviewed again. And again it's a sensational review. A spike on Snicko, near the shoulder of the bat, and that means India are 2 for 2. 2/2
    1.6 some swing back into Dhawan, and Mathews appeals for lbw after the batsman plays all around it, looking to work it into the leg side. I thought height may have been an issue, but Mathews thinks he has a chance. Sri Lanka have reviewed. No bat for sure, and that's a great review. Pitches on around middle and leg, hits him in line, and ball-tracking says it would have hit the top of middle stump. Dhawan has to walk back. He was caught on the crease there. This is a great start for Sri Lanka. 0/1

    13.2 bowled 'im. Chopped on. Did that swing back? The scoreline makes Iyer think of a cut that he normally wouldn't play. Firstly, it was fuller than a good length. Secondly, it wasn't wide, more towards the sixth stump. And so the cut was always going to be the wrong shot. He is hesitant mentally too. And so the ball takes the inside edge and uproots off stump. Simply put, that was a bad choice of shot. 16/5
    8.5 big lbw shout, and this time Anil Chaudhary raises his finger. Karthik's head falls over again, and he ends up playing outside the line, aiming a drive towards mid-on, as this length ball nips back into him. Consults for a long time with Iyer before deciding to review, and goes over the 15-second limit. Struck in line with middle stump, and ball-tracking says it's clipping the top of leg stump. Lakmal has worked him over brilliantly 8/3
    12.5 gone! Wicket No. 3 for Lakmal. Again, Pandey's feet remain stuck on the crease, stuck on leg stump, and his bat comes down from gully towards midwicket. It's a good-length ball on off stump, he plays across it, and only manages a thick outside edge into first slip's lap 16/4
    38.2 length ball outside off, and it's all over. Goes for the big hit, has to reach out, and ends up slicing it straight to the sweeper on the cover boundary. I think he wanted to hit it over mid-off 112/10
    15.2 there's that hesitation again. Good length outside off, Pandya shuffles slightly across, but it's that perfect length and the line makes it harder. Fuller than good length, ideal. A couple of stumps outside off, ideal. Pandya tries to withdraw his bat late, the ball kisses the outside edge as he tries to take his bat away, but the ball travels straight to a wide slip. India in disarray 28/6
    16.4 edged and gone. India are in tatters. Full delivery around off, not much Bhuvneshwar could do about that. Plays the line, covers the stumps, but the ball takes the outside edge and carries to the keeper. Just a bit of away shape 29/7
    25.3 past the outside edge this time, and Dickwella is excited. Has the bails off in a flash and immediately bursts out in appeal. Dangled up a bit wider, and Kuldeep stretches out to defend. Beaten by dip and turn, and is his toe on the line? I think it is! Looks like spin has given Sri Lanka the breakthrough. Beautiful offspinner's dismissal 70/8
    34.3 bowled him! Pathirana has struck, finally. Tossed up much slower, and Bumrah has a go at this. He's been defending stoutly, but that bit of extra flight drew the mistake from him. Slogged across the line and the ball skidded on to hit middle and leg stump 87/9

    3.4 gone. Why exactly is he slogging in a chase of 113? Again, Bumrah simply slants one across him, pitching on a good length and getting a little hint of away movement. Gunathilaka clears his front leg, exposes his stumps, and goes for a massive heave, and only manages a thin nick through to Dhoni 7/1
    12.3 Edged, and this time it carries to first slip, and Dhawan holds on, just about. Length ball close to off stump, Tharanga looks to drive on the up, and only manages a thick edge that goes to first slip at around thigh height. Spills out of Dhawan's hands first time, and he clutches on on the second attempt 65/3
    6.1 bowled him! Back of a length, slanting across, but this one comes back into Thirimanne. Caught on the crease again, shuffling across but not going forward or back. Bat comes down at an angle, and he chops it back onto his stumps. They're checking for no-ball once again, and this is hilarious. From one angle, his front heel is hidden behind the non-striker's bat, and from the other it's hidden behind the midwicket fielder. The stump-cam angle was inconclusive too, with the heel landing extremely close to the back of the line - whether behind it or on top of it was hard to tell - and given the evidence he had, the third umpire had to send the batsman on his way 19/2
