Dushmantha Chameera8.105526.73288010
2.3 to S Dhawan, got him! Dhawan goes for an expansive drive, no feet movement and only manages to nick that through to Bhanuka. Minute away movement after pitching did the trick for Chameera.. 28/1
43.1 to NA Saini, Chameera wraps it up. Saini's average drops to 53.50. Short of length around off, Saini fends at it and the ball lobs towards backward point. Fernando takes a couple of steps forward and pouches it. 225/10
Akila Dananjaya1004434.40323100
30.6 to SA Yadav, sharp turn to strike Surya on the pad as he pushes forward. Very, very close. Not given by Dharmasena. Sri Lanka review. Tell you what, that is very close. It definitely isn't bat first. May be saved by the impact? Nope, ball tracking comes back to say this was hitting the stumps and impact was well in line. Another outstanding review from Sri Lanka. India continue to slide.. 190/6
32.3 to K Gowtham, misses this full toss and gone! Gowtham is looking to play a premeditated paddle but completely missed it. India in danger of not utilising these overs. Don't know why Gowtham has even reviewed that. On your bike, mate . 194/7
32.5 to N Rana, got him! This is sensational bowling from Akila. Tossed up, gets the ball to land and break away sharply. Rana looks to ease it into the covers but doesn't get to the pitch and ends up nicking behind. That's the fifth wicket India have lost since the rain break.. 195/8
Chamika Karunaratne602514.16243020
42.4 to RD Chahar, short of length outside off, Chahar goes for the pull but ends up skying it straight up. The bowler, the wicketkeeper and the square leg converging but it's Karunaratne who finally takes it near short leg. 224/9
Praveen Jayawickrama1005935.90277020
18.4 to SV Samson, chipped to extra cover. First ODI wicket for Praveen Jayawickrama. Samson uses his feet but the bowler has slowed it down, which means Samson had to reach out for it. As a result, he doesn't get the required power, or the elevation, behind it and ends up hitting it towards extra cover where Fernando times his jump perfectly and takes an overhead catch. 118/3
24.5 to MK Pandey, deceived him in flight and then nicks him off as Pandey looks to drive. Lovely, slowed it down, got the ball to turn sharply and Pandey couldn't get anywhere near the pitch. Three straight games, three opportunities missed. He'll be mighty disappointed.. 157/4
28.3 to HH Pandya, beaten and hit on the back leg as he's squared up by turn. Given not out and Sri Lanka review. Looked close. The only reason Dharmasena may have given it not out, I think, is because he thought it may have turned too much to miss the stumps. Hawkeye comes back to confirm this would've crashed into off stump. Hardik is gone! Excellent review. . 179/5
Dasun Shanaka803314.12263000
15.5 to PP Shaw, his maiden ODI fifty will have to wait! Shaw goes across the stumps to try and turn it to the leg side but is beaten on the inside edge as this crashes into his pad. Shaw reviews, but I think it's a poor one. Yes, replays confirm the ball would've crashed into the stumps. A portion of the leg stump was visible at the point of impact. Plumb. Shaw will be bitterly disappointed.. 102/2

Navdeep Saini502705.40181111
Chetan Sakariya803424.25324012
22.6 to PBB Rajapaksa, Sakariya doesn't have to wait too long. And this time, it's an excellent catch from Gowtham. Short of length on the leg stump and Rajapaksa went finer on this occasion. Flicked in the air. Gowtham ran to his right from fine leg and put in the slide to grab it with both hands. 144/2
24.6 to DM de Silva, whoa! What happened there?! Back-of-the-hand slower one. Pitching on a length around off, gripping in the pitch and bouncing to hit the batter on the gloves who was committed on the front foot. Pops up high in the air. Sakariya runs in his followthrough and takes it near the stumps. India have an opening now. 151/3
Rahul Chahar1005435.40316002
32.4 to MD Shanaka, the leading edge at cover has been taken by Pandey this time. Chahar deserves that wicket. He drew Shanaka forward, got this to dip and turn and forced him into a half-hearted push. Is there life in this game yet?. 195/5
36.2 to WIA Fernando, got him! It's the sharp legbreak that has got him another wicket. Fernando pushes forward, jabs at this as the ball lobs off the shoulder of the bat to Shaw at slip.. 214/6
38.4 to C Karunaratne, terrific legbreak that has him pushing forward and beats the edge. Samson whips the bails off as they appeal for a stumping. Third umpire has a look. Think the back leg was on the line and the line belongs to the umpire. Quick work from Samson on what has been a tough night behind the stumps. He's in trouble here. Yup, gone. Third wicket for Rahul Chahar. 220/7
Krishnappa Gowtham804916.12256020
5.3 to M Bhanuka, and he has a wicket in his first over in international cricket. Fuller around off, Bhanuka went for the sweep but couldn't middle it. Sakariya took a low catch at square leg. 35/1
Hardik Pandya504318.60125030
31.6 to KIC Asalanka, Given out but Asalanka reviews. I think he's gone. Misses this slower delivery that hits him flush on the pad, the ball from there is assumed to go straight on and in this case it would've hit middle and off stump. Asalanka's handy knock is over.. 194/4
