World T20 - Final

India v Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka won by 6 wickets (with 13 balls remaining)

2.1

Kulasekara to Kohli, FOUR, oh what wrists! He takes a step down the pitch and whips this inswinging delivery through midwicket, all along the ground

India 9/1   V Kohli 5* (4b 1x4)   KMDN Kulasekara 1.1-0-8-0

4.2

Senanayake to RG Sharma, FOUR, tries a quicker delivery, but he ends up dropping it too short! Rohit quickly gets on top of that and smacks it over deep square leg. He gets worried with the height for a bit, but that just drops before the boundary

India 20/1   RG Sharma 8* (7b 1x4)   SMSM Senanayake 0.2-0-5-0

5.6

Malinga to RG Sharma, FOUR, whack! this one is full enough and Rohit, Malinga's Mumbai captain, is not fazed. He gets under it and punches it firmly past the non-striker. That was hit hard

India 31/1   RG Sharma 17* (12b 2x4)   SL Malinga 1-0-8-0

9.4

Mathews to RG Sharma, FOUR, this time he manages to thread the boundary on off side! He makes room and gets a fuller delivery outside off, that's perfect for him as he slices it through point powerfully

India 57/1   RG Sharma 28* (22b 3x4)   AD Mathews 3.4-0-18-1

11.4

Senanayake to Kohli, FOUR, this is beautifully timed! After all those deliveries he finds this one fly off the middle of the bat. He comes down the pitch and creams this over extra cover

India 72/2   V Kohli 37* (34b 2x4 2x6)   SMSM Senanayake 1.4-0-15-0

13.6

Malinga to Kohli, FOUR, full and too wide! Malinga is getting the length right but the line is completely off.. This is too wide and all Kohli has to do is get some bat on it, which he does, to pick up a boundary to third man

India 93/2   V Kohli 54* (44b 3x4 3x6)   SL Malinga 2-0-18-0

15.2

Kulasekara to Kohli, FOUR, follows it up with a murderous drive through cover.. The fielder couldn't get down in time.. hits it so hard this Kohli, using all timing and a lot of wrists

India 105/2   V Kohli 65* (47b 4x4 4x6)   KMDN Kulasekara 2.2-0-20-0

15.3

Kulasekara to Kohli, FOUR, this could be a drop here! Sena at deep midwicket misjudges this one.. It was a slower delivery and the batman went for a full-blooded pull, he doesn't get much timing.. Sena comes in a touch and it clears him.. poor judgement from the fielder

India 109/2   V Kohli 69* (48b 5x4 4x6)   KMDN Kulasekara 2.3-0-24-0
