  • So, India move to the top of the table with this win. They're in a comfortable position now and will want to carry the momentum forward when they Bangladesh in the next game of this tri-series. It takes place on 14th March at this same venue, at 1900 local (1330 GMT). Do tune in for that. Till then, cheers!
  • Rohit Sharma says it was a smart performance from his bowlers to restrict Sri Lanka to the score they did. Reckons it wasn't easy to pull that off as the conditions were difficult for bowling but his bowling unit still delivered the goods. Feels that you have to find a way to keep taking wickets in this format, otherwise winning is quite difficult. States they bat really deep so he never had any concerns about getting over the finish line. Applauds Manish Pandey and Dinesh Karthik for the way they performed, but goes on to emphasize he doesn't want to single anybody out as it was a collective effort. Ends by saying that his side needs to keep on playing the way they have and just focus on their strengths.
  • Sri Lanka skipper, Thisara Perera states that the pitch was beautiful to bat on and certainly not a 152-run wicket by any means. Admits that his side lost the game after the fall of his wicket which saw them at least 30-40 runs short of the target. Still feels they played some good cricket tonight and that they will take positives from this game. Knows that the next one is a must-win game for them and is confident that his boys will give their hundred percent. Hopes to play the same brand of cricket and qualify for the finals.
  • Man of the Match, Shardul Thakur says he just loved it today. It was his dream to win a game for India and is overjoyed to have his dream come true tonight. Smiles and says there were a few nerves but he didn't feel any pressure while bowling.
  • Manish Pandey says they were always in the game. States that stitching the partnerships was the key and they did that really well tonight. Tells us that he has been told in the team meetings as to how he should construct his innings at no. 5. Reckons he always looks to stay there till the end. Lauds Karthik for offering a good hand as they don't have much batting lower down the order. Praises the bowlers to have set it up and is happy with the win tonight.
  • The task of defending a below par total was always going to be a difficult one for Sri Lanka. They would have had to enforce a collapse to achieve victory, but that wasn't meant to be. They put in a good effort, but fell short. The bowling isn't to blame here though, it's the batting which has let them down. The top order gave them a blazing start, and they were going well till Thisara Perera's wicket. After that, everything fell apart as the hosts easily fell 20-25 runs short. Manish Pandey is out there with Russel Arnold for a chat...
  • A comfortable victory for the Indians. They've exacted the revenge for the loss at the hands of the Lankans earlier in the tournament. With a modest target set in front of them, they stuttered a bit along the way. Got off to a good start, but then lost wicket at regular intervals. Things could have gotten complicated had it not been for the calm heads of Manish Pandey and Dinesh Karthik. They battled calmly, played their shots when needed and with their unbeaten partnership of 68 runs, ensured that there were no further hiccups in getting over the finish line.
  • 17.3And that's the game! Dinesh Karthik gets low to this extremely full ball outside off and squeezes it out square through point for a single. INDIA WIN BY 6 WICKETS!
  • 17.2FOUR! Back-to-back boundaries! Scores a level now. Dipping full toss outside off, Karthik hammers this across the long on fence on the bounce.
  • 17.1FOUR! Dinesh Karthik has played an excellent shot. He anticipated the ball to be dropped short, so he stood tall and muscled the pull over mid-wicket for a one-bounce boundary.
  • Nuwan Pradeep back on.
  • 16.6Just 9 needed in 12 now. India almost home. Karthik works it just wide of the man at mid-wicket and takes a quick single. 144/4
  • 16.5Short of a good length outside off, Manish rides the bounce and punches it along the ground towards sweeper cover. One run taken.
  • 16.4Well played. Doesn't act rash, taps the slower ball down in front of point and calls his partner through for an easy run.
  • 16.3FOUR! Overpitched and Chameera has paid the price. Good batting from Karthik. Saw it pitched up, knew the fielder was inside the circle so he slogged it over mid-wicket for a boundary.
  • 16.2Easy as they come. Pandey hangs his open-faced blade and runs it to the third man fielder for a single.
  • 16.2Wide! Short but it's too short, Pandey has nothing to do with it. The umpire signals a wide.
  • 16.1The 50-run stand is up! Karthik just guides it to third man and crosses over.
  • Dushmantha Chameera is back into the attack. Easy ask for the Indians as they need 19 from 18 balls.

  • 15.5Dropped short, pulled away off the back foot on the leg side for a single.

  • 15.3The batsman has punched the ball off the back foot. They pick up a single.
  • 15.2Not out! Outside off, Karthik hits it towards point and takes off. There is a direct hit at the bowler's end as Dinesh slides his bat in. The second run is taken off the ricochet but the appeal has gone up and so has the decision. Replays confirm the batsman in question is safe.
  • A run out appeal against Dinesh Karthik is referred upstairs.
  • 15.1FOUR! Terrific way to start the over! Short and width offered outside off, Karthik pounces on it and crashes it through the covers, beating the man out in the deep.
  • Jeevan Mendis to bowl now.
  • 14.6Shortish in length outside off, played through point for a single. India need 30 runs to win off 24 balls. 123/4
  • 14.5Closes the face of the bat and places it through the empty spaces in the mid-wicket region. Gets an easy single.
  • 14.4Outside off, moving away slightly, played to point for nothing.
  • 14.3SIX! He's muscled it! Short of a length, Pandey picks the length early and he leaves nothing behind. Throws everything at it and sends the ball sailing over the mid-wicket fence with a powerful pull.
  • 14.2Just around off, touch short in length, Pandey gets a bottom edge as he tries to get bat on ball.
  • 14.1Back of a length delivery angling down leg, Karthik helps the pull through to deep backward square leg for a single.
  • Thisara Perera is back on.
  • 13.6Worked through mid-wicket for a single. That's the end of Akila's spell, he ends with figures of 4-0-19-2. 114/4

  • 13.4Short and on the stumps, the batsman hangs back and slams the pull to deep mid-wicket for a run.

  • 12.5Played to mid-wicket region by the batsman. They pick up a single.

  • 12.2Smart cricket from Pandey. He just dabs this behind point for a single.

  • Nuwan Pradeep back again.
  • 11.6Stumping chance! But Karthik is safe. Mendis bowls it outside off, Karthik goes after it and misses. His back leg comes out of the crease for a bit, but then he drags it back in quickly. In time too, as the keeper takes the bails off in a flash. Would have been gone had he been a second too late. 101/4
  • 11.5Just behind a driving length, on the stumps, whipped through mid-wicket for a brace.
  • 11.4Plays this with the spin as he pushes it through the vacant cover region for one run.
  • 11.3Quite full from Mendis, it's drilled down to long on. One run taken.
  • 11.2FOUR! Good shot. Should release some pressure. It's dropped short, Karthik waits for it to come to him, and then unleashes a fierce cut through point for a boundary.
  • 11.1Goes against the spin and wrists it through the mid-wicket area for one.
  • 10.6The batsman defends it from within the crease. They pick up a single. 92/4

  • 10.3Same attempt from Pandey, looks to run it down, but it's straight to the man at point.
  • 10.2Outside off on a good length, some extra bounce there as well. Karthik opens the bat-face and runs it down to third man before jogging to the other end.
  • 10.1Length ball on middle and off, worked off the inner half through mid-wicket for a single.
  • 9.6Flighted ball outside off, hit hard but a good fielding effort at cover. 85/4
  • Dinesh Karthik is in next.
  • 9.5OUT! Hit wicket! Would you believe it? After surviving a close run out chance on the previous ball, he finds this way to throw his wicket away. He bags a record as well - first Indian batsman to get out hit wicket in T20Is! Flatter delivery on the stumps, Rahul goes too deep in the crease to tuck it away but by doing that, his back leg makes contact with the stumps and that is it for him tonight as the LED bails come out. Really, soft dismissal. India require 68 from 55 balls.
  • 9.4Just in, just! The TV umpire gives it in favor of the batsman! Manish lets the ball dip in and then pushes it towards backward point and sets off. The fielder is quick to throw it to the keeper who takes the bails off as KL Rahul dives full stretch to get back in. The Lankans appeal for a run out and it's taken upstairs. After watching a lot of replays, the TV umpire feels that Rahul has managed to get back in.
  • That looks close! KL Rahul dives to get back in at the striker's end but the stumps are disturbed as well by the keeper. Is that the wicket the hosts wanted?
  • 9.3Flighted delivery around middle and leg, Manish comes down the track to flick but misses and wears it on the pads.
  • 9.2Flatter one outside off, cut away past the man at backward point for a single.
  • 9.1Quicker delivery, wider outside off, Rahul reaches out to that one but fails to get going with the shot. A good one-handed take by Kusal Perera behind.
  • 8.6Easy single again. Good length, angling in, clipped away towards mid-wicket. 8 from the over! 83/3
  • 8.5Good thinking from the Indians! They have picked up a boundary on the first ball so are happy to take singles now. Manish runs this length ball to third man and crosses over.
  • 8.4Flicked through mid-wicket for another single.
  • 8.3This time manages to guide it fine towards third man for a single.
  • 8.2Good length outside off, dabbed straight to backward point.
  • 8.1FOUR! Superb hit! Perera begins with a short ball outside off, Pandey gets on top of the bounce and thrashes it through cover for a boundary to welcome the Lankan skipper into the attack.
  • Thisara Perera brings himself on.
  • 7.6Drills it through cover with that strong bottom hand and picks up two more. 75/3
  • 7.5Good running! Goes back and clips it through mid-wicket. Some good running between the wickets allows them to come back for a double.
  • 7.4Lunges forward to a loopy ball and milks a single towards long off.
  • 7.3FOUR! Pummeled! Mendis drops it short, Pandey is quick to rock back and smack it past the man at mid-wicket for a boundary. That was hit with disdain!
  • 7.2Makes room does Rahul and eases the drive past the cover fielder for a single.
  • 7.2Wide! Spinning down leg, Rahul leaves it alone.
  • 7.1Driven through cover for a single.
  • Jeevan Mendis is into the attack now.
  • 6.6What happened there? Pradeep, just when he was about to deliver the ball the towel comes out which he has hooked at the back and goes flying with the ball. Pandey is distracted by it as he pushes it down to long off. He gets to the other end but doesn't seem to be amused by it. The umpire, however, doesn't pay much heed and asks them to continue. 13 off the over! 63/3
  • Manish Pandey is in next. 91 needed in 73 balls.
  • 6.5OUT! Tame dismissal! Nuwan Pradeep breaks the stand! He sees Suresh jumping out of the track early and so he drops it on a length wider than his reach. Suresh Raina still goes on with the shot. Doesn't get any power behind it and spoons a simple catch to Thisara Perera at mid off. What a time to pick up a wicket and the look on the faces of the Lankans tells us that.
  • 6.4SIX! Dumped away! That was a poor delivery from Pradeep and gets the treatment! Pradeep digs in a short ball down the leg side, Raina walks across and helps it over fine leg. There was a man stationed near the rope but he could only watch it sail over him and into the fence.
  • 6.3Back of a length outside off, tapped towards the off side for a single.
  • 6.2FOUR! Rahul gets his first boundary! A stylish looking shot, that! Gets across to a length delivery and flicks it over the man at short fine leg. No need to run for those!
  • 6.1Shortish ball on middle, dragged off the inner half towards wide long on for a single.
  • Nuwan Pradeep is brought into the attack for the first time.
  • 5.6Pushes it to mid off and brings up the 50 for his side. That ends the Powerplay too, India need 103 from 79 balls. 50/2
  • 5.5Quicker and flatter on off, Raina goes back and takes it from the off stump. Cuts hard but can't find the gap.
  • 5.5Wide! Fired down the leg side, Raina gets down to sweep but misses. He almost loses his balance but the ball wasn't collected by the keeper.
  • 5.4Pitched around middle, turning away towards off, Rahul goes back and knocks it down to long on to get one.
  • 5.3The batsman has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery.
  • 5.2Quicker ball outside off, Raina comes down the track and mistimes his loft down to long off for a single.
  • 5.1Flattish on middle, punched back to the bowler.
  • 4.6Suresh Raina makes room, Dushmantha follows him. The batter still manages to get it wide of the bowler to end the 16-run over. The momentum changer one! 46/2
  • 4.5SIX! Bam! Meaty blow, that! Another one on a shorter length on middle, Raina flat-bats it across the line. Booming hit that as the ball clears the square leg fence for a maximum. All power!
  • 4.4FOUR! Shot! Chameera once again digs in a short ball on middle, Raina jumps down the track, is a bit cramped for room as well but still swings across the line. Gets decent connection and fetches a one-bounce boundary towards square leg.
  • 4.3On a length and just around the off stump line, Raina looks to poke at it and is lucky to not edge one.
  • 4.2FOUR! Easy as it would get! Shortish and down the leg side, Raina is quick to get inside the line and help it fine down the leg side for a boundary.
  • 4.1Shortish outside off, slapped towards third man for a single.
  • Dushmantha Chameera is into the attack.
  • 3.6In the air... safe! Floated ball outside off, Raina gets down to play the slog sweep but doesn't get it off the meat. Mistimes it high in the night sky towards deep mid-wicket. Luckily for him, it falls in no man's land. A couple taken. 30/2
  • 3.5Played to the point region by the batsman.
  • 3.4Spinning in towards the pads, helped through square leg for a single.
  • 3.3Raina makes it in! But hello? What were they doing? Horrible mix-up and that nearly cost India another wicket. Flatter ball around middle and leg, Rahul clips it towards Pradeep at short fine leg. Raina from the other end sets off and is halfway down the track before Rahul sends him back. Nuwan returns a throw to the bowler who takes the bails off as Suresh makes a splendid dive to get back in. It's taken upstairs and replays show the dive has saved the southpaw.
  • Is Raina gone now? He dives to get back in at the bowler's end as Akila takes the bails off. The hosts reckon that they have got another. Let's wait and find out...
  • 3.2Gets down and sweeps it over backward square leg for a single.
  • 3.2FOUR WIDES! Spinning down leg, Rahul misses his pull and the keeper had no chance to stop it either. Bonus runs for India!
  • Suresh Raina is the new man in, replacing Dhawan. He will face the hat-trick ball as Akila picked up Rohit on the last ball of his previous over.
  • 3.1OUT! Dhawan, the man in form is walking back now. Both the Indian openers are gone inside the first 4 overs. Sri Lanka are all pumped up. Good bowling from Akila again. Nicely tosses it up around off, Dhawan dances down the track but the ball turns away from him and since Shikhar is already out of the crease, he goes on with his shot. Miscues it in the air towards mid on where Thisara Perera takes it easily. India in a bit of bother now.
  • 2.6Angling away on a length outside off, SD steers it behind point to keep strike. 22/1
  • 2.5FOUR! That had please-hit-me written all over it! Lakmal is certainly struggling to find his line and length. Delivers a short ball down the leg side and Dhawan takes full toll of it. Walks across and pulls it down to fine leg for a boundary.
  • 2.4Shortish ball on middle and leg, KL Rahul taps it towards mid-wicket and gets one more.
  • 2.3This time Dhawan guides one down to third man for a single.
  • 2.2Rahul is off the mark! Dabs this length ball towards third man for a single.
  • 2.1Fuller ball, angling away, driven down to long off for a single.
  • KL Rahul makes his way out to the middle, replacing Rohit.
  • 1.6OUT! Straight to the man! Dananjaya sees Rohit is giving the charge and hence he smartly drifts it on the pads. The Indian skipper is too close to the pitch of the ball but still looks to whip/flick it over mid-wicket. Doesn't get it off the middle and hands a simple catch to Kusal Mendis at mid-wicket who is just at the edge of the circle. Rohit shakes his head in disarray as he trudges back. 13/1
  • 1.5Bowls a googly, turning back in on middle, Rohit is tucked up as he just defends it back down to the bowler.
  • 1.4Drags his length back a bit, pulled over mid-wicket for a single.
  • 1.3Quicker one on the stumps, chopped towards point.
  • 1.2Good stop! A bit short outside off, punched hard but the fielder at cover dives to his right to make a good stop.
  • 1.1Sloppy! Flighted delivery from over the wicket, Rohit shimmies down the track and clips it towards the right of the bowler who gets across and dives to stop but fails to stop it cleanly. Concedes one.
  • Akila Dananjaya to bowl from the other end.
  • 0.6Shot but for nothing! Back of a length delivery outside off, Dhawan gets on top of the bounce and cuts it hard but finds the man at cover-point. A good first over for India! 11/0
  • 0.5Good length ball, angling away a bit, Shikhar Dhawan stands back and defends it.
  • 0.4Suranga Lakmal strays another one on the pads, Sharma can't put it away. Gets it off the pads towards the leg side as the batsmen cross for a leg bye.
  • 0.3FOUR! India off to a flier, too! On the pads this time, Rohit walks across just a touch and dumps it on the bounce over backward square leg for a boundary.
  • 0.2SIX! Rohit is up and running! True pitch, screams Russel Arnold on air. Lakmal hurls it on a back of a length on middle, it sits up at a good height too as Rohit Sharma stands tall and muscles the pull over square leg for half a dozen.
  • 0.1Landed on a length on off, shaping away late, Rohit Sharma taps it down in front of mid-wicket.
  • We are back for the run chase. Decent target for India to chase as Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan stride out in the middle. Suranga Lakmal to open the bowling. A slip in place. Let's roll...
