Commentary

11.49 pm: India overcame the fatigue from playing a back to back match to overhaul Sri Lanka's 308 with six wickets and 19 balls to spare. Their bowling could be improved and their fielding was sloppy but their batsmen were once again very solid. India and Sri Lanka will clash once again on July 6 (corrected, thanks to the 37 readers who pointed this out!) in the final of the Asia Cup.

The Pakistan-Bangladesh game tomorrow has been reduced to a dead rubber.

Readers in the US can watch the highlights of this game on Cricinfo TV.

Dhoni is today's Man of the Match for his 67 off 62 balls. Thank you for all your emails today. This is George Binoy signing off for the evening. Good night.
