  • Okay! Christmas is around the corner and guess what? This Lankan tour is about to end! Just one T20I left in this miserable tour for them and it will be played on Christmas Eve, Sunday, at 1900 local (1330 GMT) at the Wankhede. Can the Lankans manage to avoid a whitewash? Time will tell. In the meanwhile, if you do wish to compromise with your sleeping patterns, do try and check out the second NZ-WIN ODI which will be played on the 23rd of December, 2017. We take your leave. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!
  • Victorious Indian skipper, ROHIT SHARMA is the MAN OF THE MATCH. Say Yippee! for all those who guessed! He is the Man Of The Series as well. He says that the conditions were good to bat and he only tried what he always tries to do - hit through the line. Adds that it has been coming off for the last few months. On missing out on the double ton, Rohit laughs it off, saying that it is too much to ask. Deflecting the question further, he says that the team was looking at a big total as no score on this ground seems defendable looking at the dew on offer. Praises Lokesh Rahul for supporting him nicely. On his own batting, Rohit says that he does not look to go hard at the ball and just concentrates on the timing. Coming to the Indian bowling, he says that he had a lot of faith on his bowlers as they have done well in the last 4-5 months. Further mentions that he does not mind games like these where the bowlers were put under pressure. In fact, he is happy that neither spinner went on the defensive, in spite of being hit around the park. Feels that the collapse initiated was brilliant and once again, the spinners did not let him down. On the question of giving Hardik Pandya the full quota of 4 overs, he says that it makes the captain's job easier if Hardik bowls his entire quota.
  • Sri Lankan skipper, THISARA PERERA says that it is a tough series for them and the run chase was too high. On Sri Lanka's start, he credits Tharanga and Kusal Perera for giving the momentum but then feels that the middle order capitulated. States that in all likelihood, Angelo Mathews is ruled out of the series due to a hamstring injury.
  • KULDEEP YADAV says that it was a great learning curve. The first three overs of his went for 45 but he still aimed for wickets. He believed that if he got one, he could get two. He tried to bowl slower through the air and wider off the batsman initially. He went for pace but later on, he realized that slowing the pace would be vital, or rather varying it. Credits Rohit Sharma and MS Dhoni for continuously encouraging and supporting him, asking to go for wickets and not be defensive. On being asked to bowl short, he says that both players were asking him to be away from the batsman in terms of line. Feels that 7 wickets in the last 3 overs changed the game.
  • India would be happy with the test that they got. There was plenty of dew around and the spinners came back really well after going for a lot initially. The seamers were not bat tonight, just that the spinners came into a bit more scrutiny. Sri Lanka just need to avoid collapses. To lose is not an issue but to lose without a fight definitely is. Sri Lanka gave a fight of course but the last few overs were a disappointment with the bat.
  • The wrist spinners were being taken away for plenty tonight. Before Tharanga got out, Chahal and Kuldeep had joint figures of 5-0-75-0. Enough to send any fielding skipper panicking. But Rohit backed his boys and they delivered. Chahal got rid of Tharanga and that was the end of the fight. Sri Lanka slipped from 145/1 to 172/9, losing 8/27 in 25 balls. Ouch. Just 3 batsmen managed double figures. The next highest scorer was Mr. Extras - 9.
  • It started well for the Lankans, with Dickwella going great guns. Kusal Perera then came in at no. 3 and started blasting the ball from the word go, obviously with nothing to lose. He kept the viewers interested, the neutral ones of course, threatening to take the game till the very end. He and Tharanga added 109 for the second wicket in just 53 balls and be it the slightest, India did start to worry.
  • To be honest, a real cricket fan would have never doubted this result but for once, Sri Lanka gave some fight. However, that can also mislead you. When Kusal Perera was going great guns, it did seem that we could have a close game. But...
  • 17.2OUT! That is the end of the game. India win the match and the series. Sri Lanka fall 88 runs short. Hardik bowls an off cutter, around off, Chameera looks to turn it to the leg side but misses and the ball knocks the leg stump out of the ground. 2-0 to India. One more match left for Sri Lanka to end their misery.
  • 17.1A length ball outside off, Chameera is foxed on the slower one.
  • HARDIK PANDYA is back on as well.
  • 16.6Full and outside off, driven towards cover. 172/8
  • 16.5The batsman goes after this one but misses the line completely.
  • 16.4Three in a row! Why isn't he targetting the stumps? Outside off, NP swings hard after backing a long way to the leg side, only to miss.
  • 16.3Another slower one outside off, Nuwan swings but misses again.
  • 16.2A slower one outside off, Pradeep swings but misses.
  • 16.1Outside off, run down to third man for a single.
  • JASPRIT BUMRAH comes back on.
  • 15.6No fifer. Full and outside off, slapped to long off for a single. 171/8
  • NUWAN PRADEEP walks in at number 10. Could be the last man in as there is no surety over Mathews coming out to bat. Don't see the need to now.
  • 15.5OUT! Fourth wicket for Chahal. Can he get a fifer? The googly outside off, Dananjaya looks to go over the top but only succeeds in finding Manish Pandey at long on.
  • 15.5WIDE. Full and wide outside off, Akila looks to sweep but misses.
  • 15.4FOUR! Short and outside off, Dananjaya cuts it uppishly past short extra cover and just manages to beat the man diving at the boundary.
  • 15.3Played through mid-wicket by the batsman. The batsmen have run through for a single.
  • DUSHMANTHA CHAMEERA walks in now. Sri Lanka could be bowled out here...
  • 15.3OUT! Stumped off a wide. Chahal floats this wide outside off, Samarawickrama comes down the track and is nowhere near the pitch of the ball. Swings but misses. Dhoni doesn't.
  • 15.2Outside off, punched through the covers for a single.
  • AKILA DANANJAYA walks in next to join the procession...
  • 15.1OUT! Another one goes. Landed on middle, Chaturanga looks to play the reverse sweep but is cramped for room and ends up dragging it onto the stumps.
  • 14.6Swings this over mid on but does not make it carry to the fielder in the deep. Just a single. What an over - W, WD, W, 4, 1, W, 1 - 7 runs, 3 wickets! 162/5
  • CHATURANGA DE SILVA comes in now.
  • 14.5OUT! Stumped! MS Dhoni is seldom wrong. Full and flat outside off, Gunaratne looks to sweep but misses. In the process, his back foot is dragged out of his crease. Dhoni whips off the bails in a flash and appeals, reckoning he has his man. Replays confirm. Third wicket in the over!
  • 14.4Played to the mid-wicket region by the batsman. One run added to the total.
  • Out or not out? Dhoni reckons that he has his man. Stumping appeal referred upstairs...
  • 14.3FOUR! Short and outside off, slapped through the covers for a boundary!
  • 14.2OUT! Caught. Second wicket in the over. Full and outside off, Kusal comes down the track and looks to go over the top but finds Manish Pandey at long off. Simple catch to end an outstanding innings. At least he offered some fight in this run chase.
  • 14.2WIDE. Employs the reverse sweep initially but then backs out. Kuldeep bowls it wide outside off and Perera lets it be. Should not have been wided. Harsh call.
  • 14.1OUT! A golden duck for the skipper. Full and outside off, Perera slogs across the line and gets a top edge. Hardik runs across to his right like a panther and catches his prey at the ropes. Then he jokingly mocks Manish Pandey at long off saying that he should have got there instead!
  • 13.6Punched off the back foot by the batsman. 155/2
  • 13.5SIX! Full and outside off, Perera swings it with all his might over mid-wicket.
  • 13.4Outside off, Kusal looks to cut but gets a bottom edge.
  • 13.3FOUR! Full and outside off, Perera comes down the track and smashes it straight back over the bowler for a boundary!
  • THISARA PERERA comes in at number 4, ahead of Gunaratne.
  • 13.2OUT! The 109-run stand is broken. Finally an Indian spinner takes a wicket. Full and slow, on middle, Tharanga looks to slog but gets a top edge. The ball goes straight up in the air and Chahal calls for it, taking it cleanly.
  • 13.2WIDE. The wrong 'un, perhaps expecting the batsman to come at him but Tharanga stays where he is. Goes outside the wide line outside off.
  • 13.1Full and wide outside off, Tharanga manages to get to the pitch of the ball and steers it through the covers for a couple.
  • 12.6Full and outside off, slogged to deep mid-wicket for a run. 16 from the over, 30 off the last 2! 142/1
  • 12.5The batsman has pushed it to the cover region. They pick up a single.
  • 12.4FOUR! Another cracking shot. Kusal puts on his dancing shoes again and smashes it straight back over the bowler's head for a boundary.
  • 12.3SIX! FETCH THAT! Kusal is putting some batting display here. Comes down the track and sends it sailing over mid-wicket!
  • 12.2FOUR! Innovative. Full and outside off, Kusal reverse sweeps it over point for a boundary!
  • 12.1Full and wide outside off, smart bowling, seeing the batsman go down the leg side, left alone. No wide signalled as the batsman moved to his left.
  • KULDEEP YADAV is back on.
  • 11.6Pulls this away for a single. 126/1
  • 11.5FOUR! Lovely batting again. Short and outside off, Perera blasts it over covers and gets a boundary!
  • 11.4SIX! Terrific shot. Full and outside off but Perera waltzes down the track and sends it sailing over mid-wicket!
  • 11.3The batsman has punched the ball off the back foot.
  • 11.2Full on middle, swung towards deep mid-wicket for a single. Oh wow. It is Hardik Pandya at wide long on but they take him on and complete the second.
  • 11.1Full and outside off, driven through mid off for a single.
  • 10.6SIX! Pandya is furious with himself. Full and on the pads, Perera swings it over mid-wicket and hits it into the second tier! 112/1
  • 10.5A full toss now, flicked through mid-wicket for a run.
  • 10.4Smashes this to long on for a single.
  • 10.3Down the leg side, Tharanga looks to flick and gets hit on the pads. A leg bye taken.
  • 10.2A short ball, pulled through mid-wicket for a single.
  • 10.1The ball sneaks through the gap between bat and pad and beats the batsman.
  • 9.6SIX! Second of the over! Full and on the pads, Tharanga comes down the track and swings it over long on for another biggie! 102/1
  • 9.6WIDE. Full and wide outside off, Tharanga lets it go.
  • 9.5Full and flat on the pads, flicked to deep mid-wicket for a couple. One for the throw. Good running.
  • 9.4SIX! Heave-ho! It is short and around middle, Tharanga rocks back in a flash and pulls it over mid-wicket for a biggie!
  • 9.3A short ball on middle, pulled to mid-wicket for a single.
  • 9.2Now a reverse sweep attempted but this time the ball is straighter outside off and Perera misses again.
  • 9.1Beaten. Straightaway. A googly to start, flat and outside off, Kusal comes down the track but then, on seeing that he is beaten in flight, gets back in his crease, missing his cut shot.
  • More spin. YUZVENDRA CHAHAL to bowl now.
  • 8.6FOUR! Gets a boundary. Hardik persists with that line and length outside leg and this time Kusal pulls it wide of the man at fine leg for a boundary. 86/1
  • 8.5A good slower ball, short and down the leg side, Kusal ducks.
  • 8.4Another short ball, following the batsman down the leg side, pulled straight to Iyer this time at short mid-wicket. One more to the total.
  • 8.3Banged in short, pulled towards deep mid-wicket where a misfield from Shreyas Iyer allows the second.
  • 8.2Outside off, slapped through the covers for a run.
  • 8.1Full on middle and leg, swung down to long on for a single.
  • 7.6Short and outside off, cut through point for a single. 77/1
  • 7.5SIX! But totally miscued. Kusal comes down the track a year in advance and Kuldeep bowls it very slow, on the pads. Perera goes through with his swing and is clearly early. Mistimes it but such is his power that the miscue takes the ball over long on!
  • 7.4Very flat and full on middle and leg, pushed down to long on for a run.
  • 7.3Sees the batsman go for the reverse sweep and pushes it slower through the air, outside leg, which allows Kusal to get only a single to short third man.
  • 7.2A bit of flight on this one, Tharanga gets down and employs the slog sweep but mistimes it to deep mid-wicket. Just a run.
  • 7.1Full and outside off, blasted down to long off for a single.
  • The ropes are back again. Every 7 overs they come sweeping the ground, to relieve the bowlers of the dew.
  • 6.6The batsman plays the pull shot. They pick up a single. 66/1
  • 6.5Played to the mid-wicket region by the batsman. They pick up a single.
  • 6.4Backs away to the leg side, Hardik follows him, bangs it in short and Kusal pulls it to deep mid-wicket for a run.
  • 6.3On middle and leg, Upul waits for the ball to come to him and dabs it to short third man for a single.
  • 6.2Outside off, slower in pace, Tharanga looks to go over the leg side but misses it comfortably.
  • 6.1Banged in short, pulled to mid-wicket for a single.
  • India's golden man, with golden strands on his hair, HARDIK PANDYA comes on to bowl now.
  • 5.6A faster one on the pads, KP misses his flick and the batsmen take a leg bye on the LBW appeal. Seemed to be missing leg. 19 runs off the over, 18 for Kuldeep, because 1 was a leg bye. He conceded 18 in 4 overs overall in Cuttack in the first T20I. 61/1
  • 5.5SIX! Ho ho ho! He does it again! Almost an action replay of the previous ball, just that the destination is a different one. Kusal comes down the track once again, perhaps a second early and Kuldeep spots it. Bowls it flatter and wider outside off but the southpaw gets to the pitch of the delivery and swings it cleanly over long on.
  • Mid off drops back while long on comes in.
  • 5.4SIX! Terrific shot! Now Kusal uses his feet. Dances down the track and swings this brilliantly over long off.
  • 5.3Outside off, punched down to long on for a run.
  • 5.2FOUR! CLASSY! What a shot. This guy can make tough shots look effortless. Sashays down the track, gets to the pitch of the ball and lofts it beautifully over covers for a boundary.
  • 5.1A short ball to start, Kusal gets down and pulls it to deep mid-wicket for a single.
  • The introduction of spin. KULDEEP YADAV to bowl the last over of the Powerplay.
  • 4.6The batsman works it down the leg side. They pick up a single. 42/1
  • 4.5Outside off, dabbed to third man for a single.
  • 4.4FOUR! Nice shot. Full and outside off, Tharanga swings it straight back over the bowler's head for a boundary!
  • KUSAL PERERA walks in at number 3, replacing Dickwella.
  • 4.3OUT! One wicket down. A length ball on the pads, Dickwella swings it with all his might but perhaps the ball comes slowly off the surface. The timing is totally off and he ends up skewing a simple catch to Hardik Pandya at deep square leg. Possibly the best chance for Sri Lanka would have been Dickwella firing. But...
  • 4.2The batsman goes after a wide one but misses.
  • 4.1Comes down the track but is nowhere near the pitch of the ball. Swings and misses.
  • 3.6How is that not a boundary? Tharanga clips this through backward square leg and takes the single. Now, Lokesh Rahul has to cover a good distance to his left from square leg and does get to the ball. However, while picking the ball up, he loses his shape and balance. To the naked eye, it does seem like he has touched the ropes. Even one of our senior colleagues, Khalid, whose age is not lesser than a golden jubilee, spots that flack. But they do not refer it upstairs and replays show that Rahul indeed touched the rope. Just the two runs awarded as the batsmen take one on the throw. 36/0
  • 3.5Excellent yorker, outside leg, good enough for Dickwella who is dancing outside leg. Manages to dig it out for a single.
  • 3.4Played to the mid-wicket region by the batsman.
  • 3.4Another wide. Bumrah is trying to cramp Dickwella for room as he is going down the leg side. Somehow, Dickwella misses his flick. Hence, Bumrah is firing it down the leg side.
  • 3.3The batsman works it down the leg side. The batsmen have run through for a single.
  • 3.3WIDE. A slower ball, down the leg side, Tharanga misses his flick.
  • 3.2Banged in short, Tharanga goes for the pull but miscues it over mid-wicket. Should have been a single but Kuldeep Yadav runs to his wrong end initially which allows the batsmen to come back for the second.
  • 3.1Oopss... swings hard at this one, Dickwella. He is cramped for room and the ball goes off the inside edge through fine leg. A single taken.
  • 2.6Clips this through mid-wicket for one more. 27/0
  • 2.5The batsman has played it towards mid-wicket for a single.
  • 2.4Down the leg side, tucked fine for a single.
  • 2.3FOUR! Short and outside off, cut over point for boundaries in succession!
  • 2.2FOUR! Lovely shot. Backs away a touch, Unadkat shortens his length and bowls it wide. But Dickwella is upto it and slashes it with his left leg in the air and gets it over cover for a boundary.
  • 2.1Short and outside off, punched towards cover.
  • 1.6Full and outside off, pushed through the covers for a single. 16/0
  • 1.5Played through mid-wicket by the batsman. One run added to the total.
  • 1.4Flicks this away for a single this time.
  • 1.3SIX! First of the innings! A short ball, down the leg side, Dickwella just helps it with a pull over fine leg!
  • 1.2DROPPED! That should have been taken! Well, you can forgive him after his heroic innings. But still. Dickwella miscues his pull and the ball goes towards mid-wicket. Rahul runs back from short mid-wicket, gets to the ball but never gets to the catch. Fumbles multiple times and eventually puts it down. Two runs taken.
  • 1.1Landed around off, watchfully defended.
  • JASPRIT BUMRAH to bowl from the other end.
  • 0.6Oopsy. What was that? ND attempts a paddle scoop but mistimes it towards mid-wicket. A single taken. 5/0
  • 0.5The batsman has flicked the ball off his pads. They pick up a single.
  • 0.4A low full toss outside off, Niroshan looks to punch but gets a bottom edge through mid off. A single taken.
  • 0.3Outside off, punched through the covers for a single.
  • 0.2Outside off, Tharanga swishes but misses.
  • 0.1Interesting shot, poor running. Full and straight, Dickwella gets down and paddles it over the keeper. Gets more height than distance but luckily for him, Kuldeep Yadav does not get to it from short fine leg. A single taken.
  • We are back! Was that even a break? Well, seems so. Jaydev Unadkat to start off proceedings. Two Sri Lankan batsmen are out as well. Surprising. Can they prove their mettle? Time will tell. Niroshan Dickwella and Upul Tharanga are their names. Here we go... ND to face.
