Madhu: "The highest target successfully chased down at this venue is 297 by India against Bangladesh in 2010. Sri Lanka have twice chased down 260-plus targets in Mirpur including once against India."

India go past 300, the old questions remain, but for now, they are back in familiar conditions, and looking at the scoreboard, their batsmen have enjoyed themselves. Virat Kohli could score a century anywhere in the solar system, forget in different continents, given the form he is in. Welcome hundred for Gautam Gambhir. Dhoni and Raina doing what they are known for - taking off at the death. If the pitch plays anywhere close to how well it did when Bangladesh chased against Pakistan, Sri Lanka are in with a good chance. We'll be back at 6.15 pm local time
