Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Danushka Gunathilaka, 0.6 ov), 2-5 (Pathum Nissanka, 1.5 ov), 3-11 (Charith Asalanka, 3.6 ov), 4-29 (Janith Liyanage, 8.3 ov), 5-60 (Dinesh Chandimal, 12.1 ov)
0.6 to MD Gunathilaka, Siraj has Gunathilaka playing on in the first over. Dug in short and cramps the batter on the pull. Gunathilaka still swings and drags it back onto his own stumps. He falls for a golden duck. 1/1
1.5 to P Nissanka, V Iyer settles under a skier at mid-off. Fullish and outside off, Nissanka aims to loft it over the infield. Instead, he slices it to V Iyer who takes it at the edge of the circle. Sri Lanka are two down inside two overs. 5/2
3.6 to KIC Asalanka, that's gone miles in the air, and Samson eventually jogs towards where a forward short leg may have stood and completes a well-judged catch. Length ball slanting across the stumps, and the extra bounce consumes another batter. Asalanka hits across it, looking to hit over mid-on, perhaps, and it hits high on the bat and ends up achieving a lot of height but very little distance. 11/3
12.1 to LD Chandimal, slapped straight to V Iyer at backward point. Fiercely struck by Chandimal. V Iyer clutches the ball against his midriff and hangs onto it even as it bursts through his hands. On-pace short ball, well wide of off, Chandimal cuts it in the air and leaves SL five down. Iyer is in pain. Stinging blow. 60/5
8.3 to J Liyanage, bowled him! You've got to expect the googly every ball from Bishnoi, and I'm not sure Liyanage was necessarily deceived there. But the ball dipped on him outside off, pitching a half foot shorter than he expected, and he ended up playing well in front of his body to try and push into the covers. That left just enough of a gap for the ball to zip through and bowl him. 29/4

TOTAL16.5 Ov (RR: 8.79)148/4
Fall of wickets: 1-6 (Rohit Sharma, 1.4 ov), 2-51 (Sanju Samson, 6.2 ov), 3-89 (Deepak Hooda, 10.5 ov), 4-103 (Venkatesh Iyer, 12.2 ov)
1.4 to RG Sharma, Chameera gets Rohit for the sixth time in T20Is. The extra bounce of this pitch claims another victim. A lot of similar dismissals in the Sri Lanka innings. Rohit looks to make himself a bit of room and hit a length ball over mid-off. Ends up hitting the high part of the bat and skewing high over mid-off, who turns around and sprints towards the boundary to take a very well judged catch over his shoulder. 6/1
10.5 to DJ Hooda, Kumara yorks Hooda. Terrific delivery from Kumara - 144ks and floors the leg stump. Hooda shuffles across the stumps and aims the leg side. But Kumara gets this to tail in sharply and knock out the leg stump. 89/3
12.2 to VR Iyer, 117.3ks, slower short ball just a shade outside off. Iyer pulls it against the angle and ends up dragging the ball high in the air to deep square leg, where Jayawickrama, the sub fielder, snags the catch. Two in two for Kumara. 103/4
6.2 to SV Samson, gone. A little bit of wobble off the deck, it looked like. A fullish length ball of gentle pace outside off, and Samson, looking to drive on the up through the covers, sends a healthy edge through to the keeper. 51/2
