Pathan to Dilshan, FOUR, pitched up and wide, Dilshan gets the room to swing his arms, muscles that past a diving cover fielder for four

Sri Lanka 27/0   TM Dilshan 17* (18b 4x4)   IK Pathan 3-0-13-0

Khan to Dilshan, FOUR, ooh, Dilshan french-cuts that to fine leg for four, it was a full ball that Dilshan wanted to drive, gets a thick inside-edge instead, and the ball scoots past leg stump

Sri Lanka 32/0   TM Dilshan 21* (22b 5x4)   Z Khan 4-0-18-0

Dinda to Dilshan, FOUR, this time Dilshan gets it on the middle of the bat and in the gap, drives on the up past cover, not perfect timing but enough on that to reach the boundary

Sri Lanka 38/0   TM Dilshan 25* (27b 6x4)   AB Dinda 0.5-0-4-0

Pathan to Tharanga, FOUR, Tharanga drives that in the air, but he gets it in the gap as well, this was again back of a length, but Tharanga gets it past extra cover for four

Sri Lanka 44/0   WU Tharanga 15* (30b 1x4)   IK Pathan 4.4-0-21-0

Ashwin to Tharanga, FOUR, shorter from Ashwin, Tharanga slams that towards deep square leg, Irfan has to run across from deep midwicket to try stop that, he covers good ground and gets a hand on the ball but can't stop it rolling over the rope

Sri Lanka 78/0   WU Tharanga 36* (58b 2x4 1x6)   R Ashwin 1-0-9-0

Khan to Dilshan, FOUR, on the pads and that is glanced very fine down the leg side, that's another boundary

Sri Lanka 82/0   TM Dilshan 41* (45b 7x4)   Z Khan 5.1-0-27-0

Khan to Tharanga, FOUR, nicely done by Tharanga, makes a bit of room and opens the face to get the ball just wide of the keeper for four

Sri Lanka 87/0   WU Tharanga 40* (60b 3x4 1x6)   Z Khan 5.4-0-32-0

Khan to Tharanga, FOUR, short of length and outside off, and that is slammed for another boundary, Tharanga finding some fluency here, he thumps that to the midwicket boundary and the decision to take the Powerplay early seems to be paying off

Sri Lanka 91/0   WU Tharanga 44* (61b 4x4 1x6)   Z Khan 5.5-0-36-0

Dinda to Chandimal, FOUR, a superb drive from Chandimal, on the up and he sends it past extra cover, gets a good stride forward as he plays that

Sri Lanka 109/2   LD Chandimal 7* (5b 1x4)   AB Dinda 5.4-0-26-1

Pathan to Chandimal, FOUR, Chandimal has made a good start here, that was on the pads, easy put away for Chandimal, whips it behind square leg for four, Irfan is disgusted with himself

Sri Lanka 121/2   LD Chandimal 13* (12b 2x4)   IK Pathan 5.5-0-27-0

Sehwag to Mathews, FOUR, power from Mathews, that was bit short from Sehwag, he forces that through cover for four, off the back foot and well placed as well

Ashwin to Mendis, FOUR, poor delivery, quicker ball down the leg side, helped past short fine for four, Mendis moves along to 16 off 13

Sri Lanka 212/5   BMAJ Mendis 16* (13b 2x4)   R Ashwin 8.4-0-45-1

Tiwary to Herath, FOUR, for a moment Tiwary thought he had his fifth, Herath charged out and swung it towards deep midwicket, ball was in the air for a long time, but lands between long-on and midwicket

Sri Lanka 237/8   HMRKB Herath 10* (13b 1x4)   MK Tiwary 9.2-1-47-4
