6.1

Herath to Kohli, 1 run, dropped, how costly is that going to be! Malinga at midwicket is not able to hold on to over head stinger..It was marginally short and Kohli went for the pull straightaway, but didn't get the elevation

6.5

Herath to RG Sharma, 1 run, he comes down the pitch to a fuller delivery and drives it to deep midwicket

6.6

Herath to Kohli, SIX, pretty one! He comes down the pitch and easily launches it over wide long-off with an inside out drive.. The fielder was there, but he clears him by a fair margin.

India 41/1   HMRKB Herath 1-0-10-0

8.1

Herath to Kohli, 1 run, he comes down the pitch immediately and plays a crisp drive down to long off, just a single there

Herath to RG Sharma, no run, he looks to drive this to off, but gets an inside edge towards midwicket

8.3

Herath to RG Sharma, 1 leg bye, looks to move down the leg side but the bowler follows him there, it clips the pads and they take a leg bye

8.4

Herath to Kohli, no run, comes down the pitch again and almost yorker himself with that one, manages to dig it out towards mid on

8.5

Herath to Kohli, no run, comes down the pitch again and Herath fires it into his pads, Kohli pushes it straight to midwicket

8.6

Herath to Kohli, 1 run, fuller and a touch quicker, the batsman has no space to get under it, he punches it to long on

10.1

Herath to RG Sharma, no run, comes down the pitch but Herath shortens his length, he has to defend

10.2

Herath to RG Sharma, no run, a loud appeal for lbw as the batsman misses his slog, but this one was just going down the leg side

10.3

Herath to RG Sharma, OUT, soft dismissal! Rohit makes room and looks to drive through cover but he neither tries to go over nor tries to keep it down, plays it straight into the hands of short cover. That's a good low catch by Sena there. Not the first time he has been out like this..

RG Sharma c Senanayake b Herath 29 (41m 26b 3x4 0x6) SR: 111.53
