Bumrah to Siriwardana, FOUR runs, back of a length on off stump, and that's another interesting-looking short-arm whip/pull to win it for Sri Lanka. Opened up slightly and hit it firmly to the midwicket boundary
17.5
6
Bumrah to Siriwardana, SIX runs, short ball, and Siriwardana has just paddle-pulled it for six. Goes deep in his crease, maybe expecting the short ball, and just swivelled at it. Checked his shot a little, but he middled it and cleared the square leg boundary
14.4
6
Raina to Chandimal, SIX runs, down the track and that's a slightly miscued six. Was a little too far inside the line of it. Went through with the shot anyway, finished with a full follow-through to send it soaring over long-off
13.3
4
Ashwin to Siriwardana, FOUR runs, loose ball, short, and he pulls it away to the left of midwicket
10.6
6
Jadeja to Chandimal, SIX runs, this one's a bit slower on middle and leg, and he gets his front leg out of the way and sinks down low to slog-sweep firmly over the square leg boundary
10.2
4
Jadeja to Kapugedera, FOUR runs, shortish outside off, and that is a lovely shot, waits on it and cuts it away to the right of backward point
9.6
4
Pandya to Kapugedera, FOUR runs, short ball outside off, gets steep bounce, and Dhoni applauds as he watches the top-edged pull sail a long way over his head
9.5
4
Pandya to Kapugedera, FOUR runs, down the track, and that is hammered. Lands on the perfect length for an attacking shot, and he flat-bats hard down the ground and Chandimal did brilliantly to dive out of the way of the shot
7.4
4
Pandya to Kapugedera, FOUR runs, full and wide and the ball doesn't do much at all. Kapugedera can get forward, free his arms, and flat-bat merrily to the left of the diving Yuvraj at sweeper cover
2.4
6
Nehra to Gunathilaka, SIX runs, another bouncer outside off, another batsman looks to pull, and he doesn't quite middle it but gets enough bat on it to get it to carry over the square leg boundary, to the right of Ashwin chasing from long leg
0.6
4
Nehra to Chandimal, FOUR runs, short and wide, goes for the slash away from his body, and gets a thick edge that flies over the slips. Rahane leaps up at first slip, gets his fingertips to it, but can't hold on to the half-chance. It went very quickly off the edge
0.2
4
Nehra to Dickwella, FOUR runs, down the track, and Dickwella is off the mark in style. Gets his front leg away from the line as Nehra follows him, and lifts it up and over cover
