Fall of wickets: 1-18 (Niroshan Dickwella, 3.4 ov), 2-28 (Kusal Mendis, 7.4 ov), 3-100 (Dinesh Chandimal, 25.4 ov), 4-138 (Angelo Mathews, 34.4 ov), 5-159 (Lahiru Thirimanne, 39.3 ov), 6-181 (Chamara Kapugedera, 43.6 ov), 7-191 (Akila Dananjaya, 45.5 ov), 8-201 (Milinda Siriwardana, 47.4 ov), 9-210 (Dushmantha Chameera, 48.4 ov)
3.4 to N Dickwella, another massive appeal for lbw as Dickwella swings right across the line. Bumrah is certain this is out, he's trying to convince Kohli to go for the review, and he finally has. India might have their man here, folks. Searing yorker, beats Dickwella, having pitched on leg stump, hits him low on the pads in front of middle, and then HawkEye projects it to crash into the stumps. Umpire Wilson changes his decision and Sri Lanka have lost their in-form opener early. 18/1
7.4 to BKG Mendis, good grab at second slip by Rohit. The thick outside edge flies to him, demanding him to dive to his right, and he takes it with both hands. Super stuff. Of course, he has that chance to show off because Bumrah keeps hitting the deck and making the ball jag away. Mendis wafts at it, with his feet moving the other way from the shot, and pays for the mistake. 28/2
39.3 to HDRL Thirimanne, chips it straight to midwicket! And guess who takes the catch? KJ! Takes a bit to make a set batsman look foolish and Bumrah does it with a slightly slower ball. Thirimanne wants to flick it away, but he ends up playing the shot too early and as a result, instead of the ball going squarer, it ends up at Jadhav's hands at midwicket. Gritty knock, untimely end. 159/5
45.5 to A Dananjaya, swings across the line and the off stump is out of the ground. That's his fourth of the night, and his eighth in two games. Good length, seam up, nips back, too good for a No. 8. 191/7
47.4 to TAM Siriwardana, maiden five-for! And he celebrates it with a huge smile on his face. Lovely stuff. Goes full, goes straight, and in response the stumps go flat. Siriwardana had his fun, but this slog doesn't work out.. 201/8
25.4 to LD Chandimal, he's been banging it in short repeatedly at Chandimal. He's troubled him a few times, and sent down a few long-hops too. This one hurries through and cramps Chandimal for room and he ends up playing an airborne half pull, half flick, and fails to control it. Sends it looping up straight to the man at deep square leg. 100/3
43.6 to CK Kapugedera, he has been playing the inside out drives well, but this time Axar gets a little more drift than he budgeted for. Off goes the leg stump, off goes the Sri Lanka captain, and on continues the Indian celebration. 181/6
34.4 to AD Mathews, pins him lbw! And Mathews is wondering about the review, he's walking up to his partner and Sri Lanka is taking their review. This is a pretty straight ball, to which the batsman plays a premeditated reverse sweep and misses. It's the one thing he shouldn't be doing after playing such an awful shot, but as is the case when Jadhav has the ball, he has the win. Replays say it pitches in line, hits in line, no bat involved, and will go on to hit middle of middle. 138/4

TOTAL45.1 Ov (RR: 4.82)218/4
Fall of wickets: 1-9 (Shikhar Dhawan, 2.1 ov), 2-19 (Virat Kohli, 5.1 ov), 3-61 (KL Rahul, 13.5 ov), 4-61 (Kedar Jadhav, 15.1 ov)
2.1 to S Dhawan, Gone, and that's Malinga's 299th in ODIs! Not enough room for the cut, and he stays leg-side of the ball and tries to chop it away. A bit of inward shape, and all he can do is inside-edge into his middle stump. This was the sort of ball most left-hand batsmen would have looked to get behind and play towards mid-on or midwicket, not even mid-off. 9/1
5.1 to V Kohli, gone! Fernando's got his man. Not the way he must have visualised getting the Indian captain out, but he won't care. It's not exactly a wicket-taking ball, on the pads and asking to be flicked. But Kohli's maybe a touch early on it, and maybe the left-armer's inswing makes him hit it finer than he'd like, and he ends up flicking in the air, to the man stationed at long leg. Chameera's the fielder, and he takes it brilliantly, diving forward as it dips on him. 19/2
13.5 to KL Rahul, googly, but it's also a long-hop, but that doesn't matter, because Rahul has picked out the fielder at deep midwicket with his pull. What a way to get out. It was almost as if he was telling himself he would impose himself on Dananjaya today, and then his eyes lit up as soon as he saw the short ball, but he failed to take enough precautions to keep his shot down or hit it away from that man on the boundary. He just had to run a few yards to his left and accept the simplest of catches. 61/3
15.1 to KM Jadhav, does him again!. For the second time in two matches, Dananjaya gets rid of Jadhav. This one is the legbreak, tossed up and straight. The batsman goes for a sweep, hitting right across the line and missing completely. Hits him on the back thigh as he is kneeling and umpire Wilson says that's adjacent. HawkEye confirms that's three reds.. 61/4
