Dilshan Madushanka402436.00110130
2.4 to V Kohli, no need to wait for the 15 seconds here. His stumps are flattened. Kohli is playing according to the team plan, looking to capitalise on the field restrictions. Looking to slog a length ball over midwicket but it seams back in a touch and both his off and middle stumps are on the ground. 13/2
18.1 to DJ Hooda, Hooda shuffles across early to look to go over short fine, giving Madushanka a full view of the stumps. Madushanka bowls a length ball, and Hooda is early into the shot. The middle stumps goes for a walk. 157/6
18.3 to RR Pant, big big wicket. This could be worth 10 runs. Slower short ball, Pant still goes hard trying to pull it for a six, but he has found deep midwicket, one of only four fielders outside the circle. Superb delivery. Legcutter slower bouncer. really difficult ball to execute. 158/7
Maheesh Theekshana402917.2563010
1.5 to KL Rahul, massive swing back in and given lbw even though he has skipped down the wicket. They have reviewed it. It is drifting in just like an arm ball but in the opposite direction. Rahul is completely flummoxed. It looks like it has beaten the inside edge and laned on the toe. Has it swung too much? Hang on, there is a sound signature as the ball passes the bat, but it looks like it is the bat hitting the boot. The third umpire says the same. And the ball tracker shows it is clipping leg. Rahul has to walk back. 11/1
Chamika Karunaratne402726.7581100
12.2 to RG Sharma, oh he is gone. Slower short ball, has some room available, but Rohit doesn't get much power into it because of the slowness. And he has picked out deep point with the upper-cut. A superb innings comes to an end. 110/3
19.3 to B Kumar, slower ball, Bhuvneshwar delays the downswing but not enough. It is still too slow for his slog, and the middle stump is pegged back and leg stump flattened. 164/8
Asitha Fernando2028014.0012200
Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva403909.7542200
Dasun Shanaka2026213.0042131
14.2 to SA Yadav, looks for his favourite ramp but the slowness of the pitch gets him. Also he is cramped for room. He is looking to somehow get enough on this bouncer to clear short third, but he has nothing to work with. Easy catch for short third. This is not a slower ball, mind you. 119/4
17.3 to HH Pandya, oh he has caught out deep midwicket. This is not a great delivery. In the slot, on the pads, Pandya looks to go over deep midwicket, but doesn't get all of it. Caught at deep midwicket. 149/5

11.1 to P Nissanka, There's the first wicket! Flighted ball outside leg, he goes for the reverse sweep looking to clear the in-field. But he cannot keep it down or find the gap and finds Rohit Sharma at backward point. But what a knock this was by Nissanka. Has set the chase up brilliantly.. 97/1
11.4 to KIC Asalanka, In the aiiiir and a second wicket in the over! Is there a way back for India? Flighted gently on middle. He goes for the hard sweep, gets a top edge and Suryakumar at deep backward square completes a simple catch. Chahal is pumped.. 97/2
14.1 to BKG Mendis, Another one for Chahal? Yes, the umpire's finger goes up and it is the big wicket of Mendis. Slider on middle stump, he goes back but is beaten by the pace of it. Is struck right in front of the stumps. Mendis reviews but more in hope than anything. He is walking off even before the third umpire's decision. Impact in line and the ball would have clattered into leg stump.. 110/4
Ravichandran Ashwin403218.0061200
13.5 to MD Gunathilaka, Flighted gently outside off and he lofts it straight into the hands of long off. What are SL doing? Mendis is batting beautifully but is not getting any support. Was looking to go much squarer but hits it straight to Rahul.. 110/3
