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

Kulasekara to Raina, SIX runs, full toss on middle, fitting end to the innings, Raina leans over and swings at it, it has carried all the way over deep midwicket, incredible
Lakmal to Dhoni, FOUR runs, full toss gain, on the pads, no worries for Dhoni, shuffles, takes four more to fine leg

Siddarth Ravindran, our man in Mirpur: "Can someone remind them there are things called bouncers?"

Lakmal to Dhoni, FOUR runs, full tosses and more full tosses, Dhoni bends the back leg scoops it behind square leg, Mahela grimaces
Kulasekara to Dhoni, FOUR runs, high full toss, outside off, Dhoni prepares himself and clobbers it past midwicket, long on gives up early, he could have given up earlier
Kulasekara to Dhoni, FOUR runs, another boundary, Dhoni has suddenly come alive, gets one on the pads and wrists it past short fine leg
Kulasekara to Dhoni, FOUR runs, whoa, Dhoni goes off side with the helicopter, both his legs are in the air as he goes through with the swing, long off could have stopped that on the bounce, but he has over-run the ball, it slips past him to his right
