0.3 to N Dickwella, absolute beauty. Just a stunning display of loop and flight, with just the right pace. Tossed up wide outside off, drawing Dickwella forward. Beaten and Dhoni whips the bails off at his own pace. Dickwella seemed intent on advancing to the offbreak bowler. Ashwin showing his class.. 2/1
0.6 to TM Dilshan, gone. Dilshan falls now. Sl in early shambles. Looked out at first glance. Tossed up again on off, lots of turn beats Dilshan on the inside edge and strikes him in front of off. Maybe a bit high but would have hit some part of the stumps. Ashwin is showing off, but it is spinning. 3/2
2.1 to LD Chandimal, Ashwin has his third. Chandi implodes. Another floated up delivery on off, Chandimal comes down, looking for an expansive heave, but gets nowhere near it. Chandi is not quite to the pitch because Ashwin has cleverly dragged the length back just enough. The ball skews up off the outside half and Pandya takes a sitter.. 12/3
4.2 to DAS Gunaratne, given. Looked like an iffy decision at first sight. Flat down leg, a bit of turn, just enough. Off the thigh pad, to leg slip. Raina takes it. But was there some bat before that? Doubt it, unlucky for the batsman. Asela plays an indecisive flick after not reading the spin correctly. 20/4
Ashish Nehra201718.5084010
5.1 to TAM Siriwardana, Siriwardana plays a loose stroke. And pays the price for it. Bnaged in on a good length on off, Siriwardana misjudges the length and goes for an expansive pull, just like he did in the previous over. It keeps a bit low and clatters into off and middle stump. Poor stroke.. 21/5
Jasprit Bumrah301013.33111000
17.6 to CRD Fernando, bowled. That is it. The yorker is too quick for Dilhara and SL finish with 82. Very full on off, Dilhara gets his bat down but the ball has already hit the stump. SL's lowest T20 score.. 82/10
Ravindra Jadeja411112.75202010
10.3 to MD Shanaka, bowled im. Played on. SL are 7 down now. Flat outside off, turn again. Shanaka looks to open the face and work it down to third man but the ball doesn't spin as much as Shanaka anticipated, which helped in taking the inside edge. Clattered into off stump.. 54/7
Yuvraj Singh1015015.0030201
Hardik Pandya201306.5031010
Suresh Raina20623.0070000
15.2 to SMSM Senanayake, flat outside off, Dhoni goes up in appeal, Raina doesn't even appeal. The umpire gives him. Senanayake is stunned, he can't believe he has been given. Another poor decision. Full delivery outside off, skids on with the arm, Senanayake misses his drive - not by much, but no connection. Dhoni takes it but another bad decision. Raina indicates he didn't hear anything.. 72/8
15.4 to NLTC Perera, taken. Jadeja holds onto a classy catch. Tossed up on off, Perera comes down and looks to go down the ground but the spin helps take the outside half, skewed away towards cover. Jadeja runs in from sweeper cover to hold on. Is that the match?. 73/9

5.2 to RG Sharma, given. Rohit has to go. Full on middle, straight. Rohit misses his flick and that is absolutely plumb. Looked like the pace of Chameera did for Rohit who was late on it. Great delivery from Chameera though. Great comeback after a poor start. 29/1
