World T20 - Final

India v Sri Lanka

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


Mathews to Rahane, OUT, big strike first up! Rahane tries to break the pattern with a across the line slog to a back of length delivery, it comes slow off the deck and catches the underedge on to his thigh pads, it goes on to disturb the stumps.

AM Rahane b Mathews 3 (6m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 37.50

India 4/1   RG Sharma 1* (1b)   AD Mathews 0.3-0-0-1


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

India 64/2   V Kohli 31* (29b 1x4 2x6)   HMRKB Herath 2.3-0-12-1


Kulasekara to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, a full toss is hit straight to long-off! Not sure if Sri Lanka really wanted that wicket at this stage. A relief for the Indian bench though. A man in form could have hit this ball anywhere, but Yuvraj chips it straight to the fielder

Yuvraj Singh c NLTC Perera b Kulasekara 11 (30m 21b 0x4 0x6) SR: 52.38

India 119/3   V Kohli 74* (54b 5x4 4x6)   KMDN Kulasekara 3.1-0-26-1


Malinga to Kohli, 1 run, OUT, another good yorker, the batsman comes back for the second after pushing it to midwicket, but he was always struggling and direct hit ends his innings

V Kohli run out 77 (75m 58b 5x4 4x6) SR: 132.75

India 130/4   MS Dhoni 4* (7b)   SL Malinga 4-0-27-0
