India won by 6 wickets (with 46 balls remaining)
31 July 2012 - day/night match (50-over match)

Dinda to Dilshan, OUT, Dinda has struck, once again he bowls it short, Dilshan goes for the pull, top edges it, unlike the Tharanga top edge that went for six, this one goes nowhere, swirls to the right of Dhoni, who settles under it and collects, bye bye Dilshan

TM Dilshan c †Dhoni b Dinda 42 (84m 48b 7x4 0x6) SR: 87.50

Sri Lanka 91/1   WU Tharanga 44* (62b 4x4 1x6)   AB Dinda 3.2-0-16-1

Ashwin to Tharanga, OUT, Tharanga is stumped, Ashwin saw Tharanga skipping down the track, bowled it short, the ball didn't turn away after pitching, carried on in the same direction, Tharanga was looking for the spin and he misses the ball, he yards out of the crease, Dhoni has the ball, bails on the ground and both of Sri Lanka's openers are now dismissed

WU Tharanga st †Dhoni b Ashwin 51 (97m 73b 4x4 1x6) SR: 69.86

Sri Lanka 102/2   HDRL Thirimanne 4* (6b)   R Ashwin 2.1-0-16-1

Tiwary to Chandimal, OUT, Tiwary is overjoyed, as he strikes in his first over, not an exceptional delivery, was a long hop that Chandimal could have hit anywhere he wanted, Chandimal just picks out the man at square leg, he's gone for 28, a slice of luck for India

LD Chandimal c Pathan b Tiwary 28 (36m 32b 2x4 0x6) SR: 87.50

Sri Lanka 152/3   HDRL Thirimanne 24* (37b)   MK Tiwary 0.4-0-4-1

Sehwag to Jayawardene, OUT, the part-timers get another wicket, the biggest one of the innings now, Mahela looks to scoop a full ball, ends up lobbing it towards Dhoni, who accepts, umpire doesn't take long to raise the finger and send Mahela on his way, very early in Mahela's innings to be attempting that adventurous shot, SL slip to 155 for 4

DPMD Jayawardene c †Dhoni b Sehwag 3 (4m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Sri Lanka 155/4   HDRL Thirimanne 24* (37b)   V Sehwag 4.1-1-18-1

Tiwary to Mathews, OUT, Manoj Tiwary has a huge grin on his face, and why not, he's just got his second wicket, a length ball spinning away, Mathews decided it was time to get a move on, he skipped out and launched the ball towards long-off, didn't get enough power on that, long-off takes the catch

AD Mathews c Kohli b Tiwary 14 (27m 34b 1x4 0x6) SR: 41.17

Sri Lanka 190/5   HDRL Thirimanne 39* (57b)   MK Tiwary 5.1-1-23-2

Tiwary to Mendis, OUT, third for Tiwary! Mendis looked to reverse-sweep, he's bowled by a flighted legbreak, Tiwary can do no wrong here, send him up the order today when India bat, this is his best bowling figures in ODI and domestic one-dayers as well

BMAJ Mendis b Tiwary 17 (14m 16b 2x4 0x6) SR: 106.25

Sri Lanka 213/6   HDRL Thirimanne 45* (65b)   MK Tiwary 7.1-1-31-3

Tiwary to Perera, OUT, Tiwary's day gets better and better, he's got his fourth now! Perera looks to clobber the ball into orbit, he hits it high but not long enough, Raina gets under it at midwicket, and does well to pouch that one, he had plenty of ground to cover, judges it perfectly

NLTC Perera c Raina b Tiwary 2 (3m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Sri Lanka 218/7   HDRL Thirimanne 47* (67b)   MK Tiwary 8-1-36-4

Ashwin to Thirimanne, OUT, bowled 'im, Sri Lanka's implosion continues, Thirimanne charges down the track and looks to force the ball through the off side, the ball went straight on, doesn't spin away, he misses and that crashes into the top of leg stump

HDRL Thirimanne b Ashwin 47 (105m 69b 0x4 0x6) SR: 68.11

Sri Lanka 219/8   HMRKB Herath 0* (4b)   R Ashwin 10-1-46-2
