2.2 to WU Tharanga, much better. Super comeback. The old Bhuvi swing that has been missing all series raises its head, finally, on the last day of tour. He gets this to bend back in from middle, Tharanga plays outside the line of the delivery as the ball snakes back in and deflects off the pad and clatters into the stumps. 23/1
4.3 to N Dickwella, gives him a send-off with claps. Dickwella has paid the price for being too cheeky. Looked to guide this away-going delivery past short third man, but the initial movement was to paddle that away. Bumrah saw the late adjustment before he delivered, and yet angled it across from wide of the crease. Dickwella missed it altogether as the off stump took a walk.. 46/2
6.3 to AD Mathews, he's almost always right when he appeals. He's done this so many times that these stumpings appear very normal for him. Fact is it was tremendous piece of glove work. Credit to Chahal as well, who drew him forward with the flight and then got this to spin past the outside edge on the drive. The back foot dragged outside the crease and may have been on the line when the bails came off. Correct decision in the end.. 62/3
13.3 to NLTC Perera, played on! Chahal has his revenge again. This was a touch short but didn't have the room for Thisara to cut that hard, completely cramped for room as he could only chop back onto the stumps. 113/5
13.6 to MD Shanaka, the wrong'un has done the trick again. Completely foxed. He's been hit for sixes but that hasn't deterred him from tossing it up. Prodded outside the line of the delivery, didn't read it at all. The ball came back in to hit the pad and that would've hit top of leg.. 113/6
11.2 to EMDY Munaweera, he's lost his bat and is bowled as well. This was a shortish delivery on middle from Kuldeep, stopped on him just a little. He went to pull, tried to really hit this hard. Sweaty gloves, perhaps. The bat slipped out of his hand, needing square leg to be completely aware of what was happening. The off stump took a gentle knock. 99/4
16.4 to S Prasanna, this is as simple as they come. Kohli, at deep midwicket, had to move no more than a couple of yards. This was a touch short, Sekkuge got no timing or power whatsoever behind that pull. Hit straight down the throat of the Indian captain.. 134/7

Fall of wickets: 1-22 (Rohit Sharma, 2.4 ov), 2-42 (KL Rahul, 5.4 ov), 3-161 (Virat Kohli, 18.3 ov)
18.3 to V Kohli, taken at deep midwicket and Kohli falls. Those wrists, for once, fail him because the slower ball means the length ball doesn't come onto the bad as much as he had hoped. Flick carries all the way out to the boundary though so that should show you the power he can generate with a mis-hit. Walks off with a scowl thudding the face of his bat onto a fist. Apparently 82 off 54 is not enough for him.. 161/3
2.4 to RG Sharma, straight up, and Perera takes it moving to his left from mid-on. Colombo roars as they see Rohit walk back for single-digits. The opener tries to bully a back of a length ball over the straight field, but he underestimates the bounce on offer. Hits high on the bat and ends up a simple catch. 22/1
5.4 to KL Rahul, what a wild catch, Dasun Shanaka, take a bow!. Prowling at short cover, he sees the little white thing heading to him. He dives, both hands stretched out to his left and plucks it out of thin air. Up he rises, eventually, hands held aloft and soaks in the admiration of the Colombo crowd. Rahul walks away thinking about the small margins in the game, a blistering cover drive has led to his downfall. 42/2
