Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-41 (Niroshan Dickwella, 7.4 ov), 2-70 (Danushka Gunathilaka, 14.1 ov), 3-81 (Upul Tharanga, 15.6 ov), 4-99 (Kusal Mendis, 23.3 ov), 5-121 (Angelo Mathews, 28.3 ov), 6-212 (Milinda Siriwardana, 44.6 ov), 7-221 (Chamara Kapugedera, 46.6 ov), 8-230 (Akila Dananjaya, 48.2 ov)
7.4 to N Dickwella, gone! 125 kph, the fourth offcutter of the over. Slow down leg, Dickwella backs away and is flummoxed into playing early (despite it being the fourth straight slower ball). He does and chips a catch to Dhawan at midwicket who leaps up and to his left. That's another start Dickwella has thrown away. 41/1
44.6 to TAM Siriwardana, and gone! 111 kph, slower delivery on off. Siriwardana looks to go straight but the ball skews off the outside half and lobs to cover. An easy catch. But that was a terrific knock, the best of the series for Sri Lanka.. 212/6
46.6 to CK Kapugedera, 135 kph, gone underneath the bat this time. Full and straight, Kapugedara can't do much. Gets his hands down too late and the ball sneaks under the bat.. 221/7
48.2 to A Dananjaya, the slower ball and gone! Short and slow on off, Dananjaya slices a pull straight up. Axar runs across from mid-off and takes an easy catch. 230/8
14.1 to MD Gunathilaka, a juggle from Dhoni but Gunathilaka is so far out of his crease that Dhoni stays calm, catches the juggle and takes off the bails. Plenty of flight on that from Chahal, may have got some drift too. But Gunathilaka uses his feet as soon as he sees some flight. Misses the line due to that drift, yorks himself and Dhoni makes a tough stumping look tough. Got the job done ably. 70/2
23.3 to BKG Mendis, opts for the review after being ruled lbw. It wasn't an immediate decision, so there might not be bat involved. Doesn't seem to be on replay as Mendis plays a sweep to a good length ball on middle. "No bat," says the third umpire. Three reds and umpire Martinesz decision stands. Mendis does play this shot very well, but this time, he chooses to do so against a straight and quick delivery. And bringing the bat down across the line off a high backlift takes time. Far too much time on this occasion, certainly. 99/4
15.6 to WU Tharanga, another one! Sri Lanka falling away. Good length outside off, Tharanga fishes at it, gets a thick outside edge and flies straight to a wide slip. That's terrific bowling. The old 1-2, the full, wide ball after the short one, gets just enough lateral movement too, the ball shaping away. Tharanga wafts and pays the price for a flirty, nothing stroke. Good captaincy from Kohli too, to have himself there.. 81/3
28.3 to AD Mathews, appeal for lbw and Reiffel gives it. Axar strikes, and it's the big one too as Mathews walks back, the second Sri Lankan out sweeping. He plants his front leg across and tries to smack the good length ball on off stump away. But it's just that tiny bit too quick. The umpire took his time, wondering if the impact was in line with off stump, and then said yes. HawkEye show it would have been umpire's call.... 121/5

Fall of wickets: 1-109 (Rohit Sharma, 15.3 ov), 2-113 (Shikhar Dhawan, 16.3 ov), 3-114 (Kedar Jadhav, 17.1 ov), 4-118 (Virat Kohli, 17.3 ov), 5-119 (KL Rahul, 17.5 ov), 6-121 (Hardik Pandya, 19.3 ov), 7-131 (Axar Patel, 21.5 ov)
15.3 to RG Sharma, gone! Looked like the legbreak again, flat and full on leg, Rohit chooses to sweep but misses it. Dhawan seemed to instructed him, if you ... Rohit absorbs what Dhawan tells him and chooses to review. No bat on that. That is another terrible review, pitches on middle and leg, hits the stumps halfway up. Three reds and Rohit throws a hundred away.. 109/1
17.1 to KM Jadhav, 77 kph, the googly from Dananjaya and Jadhav is castled. Completely flummoxed by the fact that an offspinner is ripping googlies - well, the direction of turn is the same. He stays back, wafts with bat well away from pad, and the ball says hello to that glaring gap and goes right through to hit middle stump. That was not a good stroke, not helped by the fact that he did not have a clue of the direction of spin. 114/3
17.3 to V Kohli, Kohli's gone! 4 off 2! Dananjaya spinning a web around these Indian batsmen. What's happening. Yikes. Wow. Another googly, this one is soooo full but Kohli still does not manage to get bat on that. It's full and straight, Kohli takes his pads away from the line of the ball, looking for that trademark whippy cover drive, but all that does it create a massive bat-pad gap and the stumps are disturbed again. SL in raptures.. 118/4
17.5 to KL Rahul, 74 kph, Rahul this time does not read the googly. And India are in trouble. Sensational control of the googly, so good that the length is just terrific - it's full but not full enough that Rahul can smother the turn, it's not short, definitely not short enough for Rahul to go back. It spins back in prodigiously, clips the pad and knocks into the stumps. 5 wickets in 15 balls. Aaaah, wow.. 119/5
19.3 to HH Pandya, five for Dananjaya. And India are in utter shambles. It was Ajantha Mendis in Galle! It's Dananjaya in Pallekele! The power of wristpin. It's surprise, surprise, another googly. Pandya runs down to the pitch, but does not get there. Hey, guess what that does? It creates yet another bat-pad gap. The snake of a googly finds that gap, and settles nicely in Dickwella's gloves. Pandya was not reading that, thought he could smother the spin but the bowler was clever enough to drag that length back.. 121/6
21.5 to AR Patel, 86 kph, the non-turning offbreak? Who cares, say Sri Lanka. Axar can't review even if he wants to. Yes, it is. The non-turning offbreak on off, flat and full, draws Axar forward, beats the bat on the inside edge and strikes him in front of off. Sri Lanka have formed a circle with enough energy to power those floodlights that failed in the CPL earlier today. Akila has six!. 131/7
16.3 to S Dhawan, what a catch! That was perfect timing, sprinted right from the outset, ran to the ball in a straight line - as opposed to around the ball - and took the catch inches off the ground. Stunning catch. Flat down leg from Siriwardana, would have been wide had Dhawan chosen not to sweep. His top-edged lobbed towards short fine leg. That's the best moment of the ODI series for Sri Lanka. 113/2
