Kings XI Punjab
10.42pm Sri Lanka have gone 1-0 up, and that's set up this series perfectly. This young Sri Lankan side will be full of confidence now. And India, who were expected to win this series easily, now have to come from behind. An unusual sort of T20 game to begin the series, but a very watchable game. Do join us for the rest of the series, and keep your comments flowing in. Until next time, good night!
Kasun Rajitha is the Man of the Match, on his debut. Sanjay Manjrekar doesn't interview him, for some reason.
Dinesh Chandimal: "I'm over the moon. I thought toss was important. I saw some fresh grass on the pitch. Credit goes to bowlers, they did a really good job. It's a young team. Every time we tell them to back themselves and do what they are capable of. We miss a lot of senior players, the youngsters have put their hands up and grabbed the opportunity."
10.35pm Presentation time. MS Dhoni: "The wicket was completely different to what we have been playing in the last one month. It was more like an English wicket. There was spongy bounce, and variable pace. We played quite a few big shots. Maybe not the kind of shots we should be playing on a spongy wicket. This was a 135-140 kind of wicket because there was some help for the fast bowlers. It was more English conditions than Indian conditions. Our shot selection should have been better. Looking at the positives, everybody got a chance today, and we kept pressing hard."
DanielAlexander: "Sri Lanka regain the No. 1 T20I spot" -- Yup. India slip down to No. 3.
Dhanuka: "I can see Siriwardana is going to be the next captain,, mark my words.."
AB: "Sunil Gavaskar should be full from having had to eat his words relating to the pitch."
Shantanu: "So Ashwin, Nehra didn't finish their quota and Bumrah bowled an in consequential over at the end. While Raina and Pandya bowled too many. Dhoni really should have attacked more."
Wilson : "Partnerships, folks, in any form of the game...!"
10.30pm The Sri Lankan seam attack looked to have more depth - and looked a little more threatening - than India's on this green pitch. And Sri Lanka's top order played fewer silly shots than India's did. They knew what their target was, and got there reasonably easily even if there were a few nervy moments during their chase.
Bumrah. Sri Lanka need 10 from three overs.
