6 runs again from the Hardik over now as the Lankans are also riding their luck here. After a crushing drive meets Karthik at covers, Dickwella inside edges one to the fine-leg boundary. Lankans inch closer to the target as the score reads 91/3 after 17 overs. Visitors need 22 runs more with 7 wickets in the bag
9 runs from the Bumrah over as Mathews first hits a pull that rockets to the boundary on the carpet and then plays the perfect drive past the cover fielder. That was undoubtedly one of the shots of the day as the Lankan score reads 85/3 after 16 overs. 28 more runs needed for the Lankans.
4 runs from the Hardik over as Mathews goes back and beautifully on-drives the pacer to put the pressure right back on the Indian bowlers. This has been a quality performance from the Sri Lankan players, be it with bat or ball. Sri Lanka's score reads 76/3 after 15 overs. 37 more needed for the Lankans with 7 wickets in the bag
6 runs from the Bhuvneshwar over as Dickwella brings out the flick out of nowhere and the ball bounces a couple of times and into the boundary. One gritty customer this one as the Indians need to get rid of him quickly. Sri Lanka's score reads 72/3 after 14 overs. Sri Lanka still need 41 runs to win
WICKET!!! Hardik has finally got his man after going for a few runs as Tharanga edges one to Dhawan who takes the catch on second attempt. Tharanga goes for 49, but this could be too late in the day for the Indians as the Lankans are already on course and now need just 47 from 222 balls after the 13th over.
4 runs from the Bhuvneshwar over as the edge off the last ball from Tharanga's bat drops short of Dhawan at first slip. Bhuvi wears an unlucky look here as the Lankans are slowly but surely moving towards the target. Sri Lanka's score reads 60/2 after 12 overs. A good rise in the scoring rate here for the visitors.
WICKET! Thirimanne departs now, beautiful delivery from Bhuvneshwar Kumar, it comes in and gets Thirimanne to play it onto the stumps. Again they check for the no ball and its a close call. But umpires have no conclusive evidence, hence they stay with the on field call. SL 19/2 now, Thirimanne departs for a 0.
Bumrah strikes yet again or maybe not, its a no ball. This has happened before against Pakistan in the Champions Trophy final, it seems Bumrah knew as he straight away looked at the umpire. Replays show that he had overstepped the bowling crease To add insult to injury, the free hit goes for a boundary. SL 19/1 after 6 overs.
WICKET! It was coming, the bowlers have been piling on the pressure and its a terrible shot from Gunathilaka, he tries to give himself room and heave it over the cover region. All he manages to do is get an outside edge and Dhoni completes a simple catch behind the stumps. Early wicket is just what the doctor ordered for India. SL 7/1.
4 runs from the Bhuvi over as he bowls one wide outside the off-stump and Tharanga launches into that one. But Bhuvi comes back to once again beat the edge of the opener's bat. Sri Lanka must look to stay positive and not worry about the ball missing the edge. Sri Lanka's score reads 7/0 after 3 overs
WICKET!! This is it. India all out for 112. Brilliant innings from MS Dhoni comes to an end as he slices one from Perera to Gunathilaka. Goes for 65 as India end on 112 on a wicket that helped the Lankan seamers. Lakmal stole the show at the top with Mathews and Pradeep. Sri Lanka need 113 to win this one.
10 runs from the Pathirana over here as Dhoni first hits a huge one over wide long on into the stands and the straight drive off the last ball hits the sponsor board and comes back into play. Dhoni murdered that one. India's score reads 108/9 after 37 overs. But can Chahal now bat an over?
DHONI does it again. Shows who is boss. Umpire puts the finger up after Pathirana hits Bumrah on the pad. But MSD turns back and reviews the decision without even looking at Bumrah and he is right. That one hit the pad outside the line of the stump. India's score reads 87/8 after 33 overs.
