Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Prithvi Shaw, 0.1 ov), 2-51 (Sanju Samson, 6.1 ov), 3-113 (Shikhar Dhawan, 14.1 ov), 4-127 (Suryakumar Yadav, 15.2 ov), 5-153 (Hardik Pandya, 18.4 ov)
0.1 to PP Shaw, gone first ball, lovely outswinger which Shaw edges behind! What a start to the series for Sri Lanka. Chameera pitched it up and swung it away nicely, Shaw, not surprisingly, had his feet stuck in the crease and pushed away from the body for a faint edge. The keeper goes up immediately, Chameera is thrilled, and Shaw walks back slowly. 0/1
18.4 to HH Pandya, a huge appeal for caught-behind and given after taking some time. Was full, fast and around fifth stump. Hardik tried to dig it out but only managed an outside edge. 153/5
14.1 to S Dhawan, holes out at deep-backward square leg. Short but Dhawan dances down the ground. He isn't in the position but goes for the flick-cum-pull. Not the required power behind it and Bandara takes it tumbling to his right after taking a couple of steps sideways. 113/3
6.1 to SV Samson, a wicket first ball for Hasaranga as well, he's trapped Samson plumb in front! Turns one in straightaway from off stump, Samson puts his front foot forward and plays for only a bit of turn but it beats his bat by coming in sharply. Samson checks with Dhawan but no point reviewing that. 51/2
15.2 to SA Yadav, Surya tries to repeat the shot but Hasaranga has pulled his length back a touch further and as a result, the ball turns a bit at the batter and goes towards long-off, where Mendis takes a couple of steps forward and pouches it. 127/4

Fall of wickets: 1-23 (Minod Bhanuka, 2.3 ov), 2-48 (Dhananjaya de Silva, 6.2 ov), 3-50 (Avishka Fernando, 7.1 ov), 4-90 (Ashen Bandara, 12.6 ov), 5-111 (Charith Asalanka, 15.3 ov), 6-111 (Wanindu Hasaranga, 15.5 ov), 7-122 (Chamika Karunaratne, 16.6 ov), 8-124 (Dasun Shanaka, 17.4 ov), 9-125 (Isuru Udana, 18.1 ov), 10-126 (Dushmantha Chameera, 18.3 ov)
7.1 to WIA Fernando, finds deep square leg and Bhuvneshwar strikes straightaway! Avishka was looking really good with his lusty blows in the gap but this time he pulls the short ball absolutely straight to Samson at the square boundary. Big wicket for India. 50/3
16.6 to C Karunaratne, played on. Length outside off, goes for the cut but ends gets an inside edge on to the stumps. Might have been a knuckleball from Bhuvi. 122/7
18.1 to I Udana, fuller outside off, Udana looks to go over long-on but doesn't get the distance. Was a slower one and away from him. Long-on takes an simple catch. 125/9
18.3 to PVD Chameera, another wicket for Bhuvneshwar as India go 1-0 up. Fuller outside off and Chameera goes for a big hit. He makes the connection alright but it's a big ground. An easy catch for Krunal at deep midwicket. 126/10
15.3 to KIC Asalanka, Asalanka holes out. Fuller outside off, moves across and looks to clear deep midwicket once again but this time he finds Shaw. A pat on the head for Asalanka from the captain. 111/5
15.5 to PWH de Silva, bowled 'im. Fuller and straighter. Hasaranga makes some room and looks to go inside out. But he manages only an outside edge that deflects on to the off stump. 111/6
2.3 to M Bhanuka, straight to cover again, taken by Suryakumar this time! Flattish outside off, Bhanuka couldn't have slapped it any more directly to the fielder in the circle, and India get first breakthrough. 23/1
17.4 to MD Shanaka, an appeal for stumping. A length ball outside off, Shanaka pushes at it and gets beaten by the carrom ball. Loses his balance and his front foot comes off the ground. Exactly at that moment, Kishan breaks the stumps. Don't think he actually waited for the foot to be in the air. 124/8
6.2 to DM de Silva, what a lovely legbreak from Chahal! Is this a T20 or Test match? Flight and drift towards leg, slow through the air which keeps Dhananjaya waiting in the crease, and then it turns away to beat his outside edge to knock the top of middle and leg. What a beauty!. 48/2
12.6 to KNA Bandara, Bandara's struggles come to an end. A length ball around off, he went for an ugly hoick only to miss it completely. The ball hit the off stump. 90/4
