  • Another series win for the Indians. This is their 16th series win at home since November 2015. WOAH! How dominant are they at home? Well Sri Lanka would know as they were unable to avoid a whitewash. India on the other have tougher challenges ahead and they look a good enough side to compete. So folks, that is it from the coverage of this game. Merry Christmas to everybody. Good bye and take care!
  • Indian skipper, Rohit Sharma, was always confident about winning the game as they still had more fire power to come. He says It was a plan playing with 6 batters and an all-rounder. Reckons every player who got an opportunity made an impact. He mentions it is a team effort and every player in the series has done his job, right from the one day series to the T20I series. States a lot of the guys who were playing their first game or their second game showed a lot of maturity. Admits since the series against Australia they have done a lot of things right. Ends by saying there were some hiccups but it is a part of the learning curve.
  • Man of the series, Jaydev Unadkat, says things went really well for him. Mentions to get such results is a big thing. Admits the Indian T20 League and the handwork in the nets has paid off. Further adds the domestic circuit has helped him mature as a player. Informs he was eager to make his comeback.

Ends by saying the performance in the Indian T20 League and the domestic league has given him a lot of confidence.

  • Dinesh Karthik and Manish Pandey say they was under pressure but the ball was coming and and they backed themselves as only one boundary was needed. Mentions It was nice to see MS and Dinesh to finish it off in style. Reckon they batted well but is should have been over earlier. Credit Sri Lanka for their bowing.

He opines It is tricky to play a T20 on this wicket as there is something for the bowler and for the batsmen. Ends by saying they have been quite dominant in this tour, except for the game in Dharamsala. Appreciates the batsmen and the bowlers for their performance. We now have the Indian coach, Ravi Shastri, for another interview.
  • Earlier in the game, Sri Lanka won the toss and opted to bat first. They posted what looked like a below-par total with Asela Gunaratne top scoring for them with a 36. Every Indian bowler except for Siraj was impressive with Jaydev Unadkat being the pick off the bowlers, going for just 15 runs in his four overs and picking two wickets. We now have Sanjay Manjrekar with Manish Pandey and Dinesh Karthik for an interview.
  • India seemed to be in trouble but then a 42-run stand between Iyer and Pandey put them in command. Though the former was run out in an unfortunate manner, the latter continued playing his shots. With 37 needed from 31, it seemed the home side will cruise to victory but two quick wickets for the Lankans gave them some hope. However, it was all diminished by the pair of Karthik and Dhoni who sealed it in the last over.
  • 3-0, a whitewash is what India have inflicted on the Sri Lankan side. After two lopsided victories, we have finally witnessed a close encounter, a last over finish. Defending a modest-looking target of 136, the Lankans needed to bowl really well and they did exactly that. Chameera and Dananjaya were excellent in the Powerplay and did not give a lot away and also managed to take the early wicket of KL Rahul.
  • 19.2FOUR! Finishes it off in style! A full toss on the leg stump by Perera, Dhoni flicks it through square leg for a boundary. INDIA WIN BY 5 WICKETS!
  • 19.1SCORES LEVEL! Overthrows making the matter worse for the Lankans! It wouldn't have mattered though. Perera bowls it full on middle, Dhoni goes uppish but short of the fielder at long on. They complete one. The fielder scores a direct hit at the non-striker's end and the ball deflects away from the fielder backing up and the batsmen take another overthrow.
  • 18.6SIX! The bowler took a good 2 minutes to have a chat with his skipper before this ball and did a lot of fielding placement talk. After all that and all the thinking put into it, he ends up serving a full toss! Poor, very poor from Pradeep. He comes running in and bowls a high full toss. Not many would miss out on those and Karthik dispatches it over the mid-wicket fence for a biggie. 3 needed off the last over. 133/5
  • 18.5Up and over short mid-wicket but not enough on it to reach the boundary! A full ball on middle, Karthik flicks it over mid-wicket. The fielder in the deep runs to his left and makes a stop. Two taken by the batsmen 9 off 7. An important last ball coming up.
  • 18.4Dot! 11 off 8 now! Pressure getting to Karthik, he tries to be cheeky with a scoop but does not connect. Even though it was down the leg side the umpire does not call it a wide as he was trying the paddle scoop.
  • 18.3Fullish ball on middle, Karthik swings it through mid-wicket for a couple. 11 off 9 now.
  • 18.2On a length on off, Dhoni chips it to the right of the bowler and down towards mid on for a run. India finding it difficult to score boundaries.
  • 18.1A single to start with! A short ball outside off, Karthik cuts it through point for a run.
  • Nuwan Pradeep is back into the attack.
  • 17.6A dot to finish! Precious, precious at this stage. Perera drags his length back outside off, Dhoni defends it towards covers. He thinks off a run but after seeing the fielder get to it quickly he opts against it. 15 off the last two. 121/5
  • 17.5The batsman guides it to third man. They pick up a single.
  • 17.4Full ball on off, Dhoni eases it down to long off for a run. 4 singles in this over. The runs required are still more than the balls remaining.
  • 17.3ANOTHER ACROBATIC STOP! A short ball outside off, Karthik cuts it towards point. The fielder there dives to his left and makes an excellent stop. A run taken though.
  • 17.2Fuller in length on off, driven through mid off for a run.
  • 17.1On the pads, Karthik flicks it through square leg for a run.
  • Thisara Perera is back into the attack. 20 needed from 18.
  • 16.6NOT OUT! It is going over the stumps! A review in hope I feel by the Lankans. Chameera bowls it on a length on off, shapes in after pitching. Dhoni foes for the flick but misses. The ball hits him on the pads and the players appeal but the umpire shakes his head. Sri Lanka immediately review and the replays roll in. There is no inside edge on Ultra Edge but Hawk Eye shows the ball to be going over the stumps. The on-field call stays. 116/5
  • A huge appeal for LBW against Dhoni not given! They have reviewed it straightaway as it will be a big wicket. Height might be an issue though.
  • 16.5The batsman has punched the ball off the back foot. Two runs added to the total.
  • 16.4FOUR! Streaky! Even if Dhoni intended it, it was never meant to be hit so fine. Chameera bowls it on a length around off, gets it to straighten. Dhoni tries to guide it down to third man but the ball goes off the edge to the right off the keeper. Dickwella puts in a full length dive but is not able to reach it and it goes down to the third man fence.
  • 16.3Driven towards the mid on region. The batsmen have run through for a single.
  • Sri Lanka are not happy with the ball as it may have got too wet. The umpires also agree and they are changing it.
  • 16.2Back of a length no middle, Dhoni tucks it around the corner to get off the mark.
  • MS Dhoni walks out to bat. 28 from 23 needed. Can he finish it?
  • 16.1OUT! BOWLED 'EM! Chameera strikes! He has been excellent tonight. He comes running in and lands it on a length around off, gets it to jag back in. Pandey with no foot movement, tries to flick it through the leg side. He leaves a big gap between bat and pad. The ball sneaks through and hits timber. The set Manish Pandey is walking back and Chameera is elated. A good innings by Pandey comes to an end. Two new batsmen at the crease now just what Sri Lanka wanted. 28 from 23 needed with 6 wickets in hand. Game on?
  • Dushmantha Chameera is back into the attack.
  • 15.6Driven through mid off by the batsman. They pick up a single. 108/4
  • 15.5FOUR! SLAPPED! A short ball, not the delivery you want to be bowling at this stage. Pandey stands tall and slaps it through covers. The outfield here is lightning fast which gives the sweeper cover fielder no chance. 29 needed from 25 now. India in command here.
  • 15.4Flicks it with the angle towards mid-wicket. Asela there, misfields and concedes a run. They need to stop these if they are to win this game.
  • 15.3On the pads, Karthik loves it there. He flicks it through backward square leg for a couple.
  • 15.2Fuller in length on off, driven to covers.
  • 15.1Length ball on middle, pushed to long on for a run.
  • Dinesh Karthik walks out to the middle.
  • 14.6OUT! It is a legal delivery! A big wicket. Sri Lanka are not letting India get away. After being hit for two boundaries in the over, Shanaka gets a breakthrough. He bangs it in short outside off, Pandya tries to be cheeky as he plays the upper cut. The ball goes off the toe-end and into the gloves off the keeper. Pandya starts walking as he knew he has edged it but the umpires ask him to wait as they go upstairs to check for the no ball. But replays show the front foot is fine. Hardik is not happy with himself and the Lankans are ecstatic. 37 needed now from 30. 99/4
  • Action all-around! Pandya is out caught behind but wait...They are going upstairs to check whether the bowler has overstepped.
  • 14.5Fuller on off, Pandya times it through covers for a couple. Good running.
  • 14.4The batsman plays a pull shot to this short delivery. They pick up a single.
  • 14.3FOUR! Over compensates now! Shanaka tries to bowl it fuller but ends up serving a full toss, a gift for Pandey. He thwacks it through mid-wicket to fetch himself another boundary. Back-to-back in this over. Is this the game-changing over?
  • 14.2FOUR! Too easy! Short at 124 kph, it sits up to be hit. Pandey rocks back and pulls it through mid-wicket for a boundary. 44 needed of 34 now.
  • 14.1Fuller in length on off, driven down to long off for a run.
  • 13.6The batsman has punched the ball off the back foot. 87/3
  • 13.5FOUR! Again the fielders have to support the bowler! Akila floats it full on middle, Pandey bludgeons it down the ground. Gunathilaka at long off, runs to his right, puts in a dive but only manages to push the ball onto his partner coming in from long on who is lazy to bend. A boundary results.
  • 13.4A wrong 'un, Pandya reads it and flicks it towards long on for a run.
  • 13.3Fires it on middle, Pandey pushes it down to long on for a run.
  • 13.2OUT! Very unfortunate way of getting out for Iyer! Akila drags his length back on the stumps, Pandey rocks back and hits it hard towards the bowler. Iyer was backing up a long way as Dananjaya gets his finger tips to the ball and it deflects back to the stumps. The bowler appeals and the umpire raises his finger as Iyer starts walking back. A big-wicket, just when this partnership looked to take away the game from the Lankans. 55 needed now from 40. Game on!
  • Hardik Pandya walks out at no. 5.
  • 13.1Excellent fielding! The captain leading from the front! A short ball outside off, Pandey pushes it towards Perera who dives to his left and makes a good stop.
  • Akila Dananjaya is back into the attack.
  • Oh no! Iyer is limping out there and now the physio has come out to have a look. He was holding his hamstring. Not good signs for India as the ropes come out one over prior to sweep the dew off the ground. The players in the meantime are having a drink. Iyer seems okay now and he is ready to go.
  • 12.6Bangs it in outside off, Pandey flat bats it to mid off for a quick run. 81/2
  • 12.5Very sloppy from Sri Lanka! They need to be more aware as runs are not easy to come. Chameera bowls a short ball outside off, Pandey cuts it towards sweeper cover. They complete one, seeing Asela go slow towards the ball. Iyer returns for the second. The fielder fires a throw at the bowler's end but the batsman makes his crease. Also Iyer might have hurt himself while taking the second as he is seen limping.
  • 12.5WIDE! The thinking was not bad there but the accuracy has to be there. Chameera bangs it in short but down the leg side and the umpire calls it a wide. Captain Perera is not a happy man.
  • 12.4Goes wide off the crease and bowls it on middle, Iyer clips it towards mid-wicket for a run.
  • 12.3WELL BOWLED! A dot! A length ball on off, shapes away after pitching. Iyer tries to defend but gets beaten. They need more of these now.
  • 12.3WIDE! Not what Sri Lanka need, they can't give away easy runs here. Slips this ball down the leg side and the umpire signals a wide.
  • 12.2On the pads again, too easy for Iyer. He flicks it through backward square leg to bag himself a brace.
  • 12.1Flicks it with the angle through square leg for a run.
  • Dushmantha Chameera is into the attack now.
  • 11.6SIX! BANG! A much-needed one. First boundary in 29 balls. Shanaka bowls a full ball on off, right in the zone for Iyer. He just lofts it over long off for a biggie. Rohit Sharma in the dressing room loved that shot. 64 needed from 48. 72/2
  • 11.5Very full outside off, squeezed out to point.
  • 11.4Punched off the back foot by the batsman. The batsmen have run through for a single.
  • 11.3Shorter in length on middle, Iyer pulls it towards deep square leg for a run. Singles won't harm Sri Lanka.
  • 11.2Fuller in length on middle, Iyer eases it down the ground for a couple.
  • 11.1Back of a length on off, Manish pushes it through the off side for a run.
  • Change of ends for Dasun Shanaka.
  • 10.6Driven towards the mid off region. They pick up a single. 61/2
  • 10.5HOWZAAAT! Was that pad first or bat first? Akila tosses it up on middle, it goes on with the arm. Pandey presses forward to defend with bat and pad close to each other. The bowler appeals but the umpire shakes his head. Dickwella asks the bowler whether it was bat and Akila himself is not sure, indicating that perhaps it was bat first. Replays later on show that it was pad first but the ball would have clipped the top of the stumps. Hence the decision would have stayed as it would have been an umpire's call.
  • 10.4The batsman plays it with an angled bat and guides it to third man. One run added to the total.
  • 10.3NOT OUT! Excellent running! Akila bowls a short ball on middle, stays a touch low. Iyer pulls it towards deep mid-wicket. He runs a single and then goes for the second. The fielder fires a throw to the keeper who whips the bails off and appeals. Iyer seems to be in but the umpire still takes it upstairs. Replays show that Shreyas has made it in quite comfortably.
  • They have gone upstairs for a run out appeal against Iyer. He seems to be in though but just to be sure.
  • 10.2Flatter ball on middle, Manish works it around the corner for a run.
  • 10.1A dot to start with! Akila tosses it up on off, Pandey defends it to covers.
  • Akila Dananjaya is back into the attack.
  • 9.6Played to the point region by the batsman. The batsmen have run through for a single. 56/2
  • 9.5A length ball outside off, Pandey hops and punches it back to the bowler.
  • 9.4The batsman shows the full face of the bat and defends the ball off the back foot.
  • 9.3Landed outside off, dabbed to third man for a single.
  • 9.2Nice shot, but no timing. A length ball on middle, Iyer lofts this over the bowler but long on cuts it off. Two runs taken.
  • 9.1Excellent effort in the deep! A short ball outside off, Iyer plays it nicely with the extra bounce and guides it through the vacant first slip position towards third man. However, Akila Dananjaya covers good ground to his left from third man and dives to stop the ball, keeping the batsmen down to two. Remember my childhood days, wherein I used to play such shots on a gaming console and get a boundary every time. Not suggesting that I am an old man by any means but still... those were the days... as they say...
  • Thisara Perera is back on.
  • 8.6Much better. Waits for the ball to come to him and dabs it to third man for a single. 50 up for India but it has taken a long time to come. 86 more needed from 66 balls. 50/2
  • 8.5Ahhh.... now impatience gets the better of Shreyas as he wildly hacks at a full ball outside off and nearly drags it back onto his stumps. The ball goes behind to the keeper and the batsman wants a single but Pandey sends him back.
  • 8.4Full on middle, flicked towards short mid-wicket.
  • 8.3Needless poke. That is the third time in this innings, at least from my memory that Iyer has attempted a run down to third man, but with his bat well away from the ball. Missed on all the three occasions.
  • 8.2Outside off, Pandey waits for the ball and dabs it to third man for a single.
  • 8.1A short ball, going down the leg side, Iyer misses his tuck and the ball goes off his thigh pads towards fine leg. A leg bye taken.
  • 7.6Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat. 47/2
  • 7.5That nearly gets him! Fine delivery. Pitched outside off and jags back in, Pandey is caught in his crease as he looks to flick. The ball goes off something and dies on its way to Niroshan Dickwella. He dives to his left but misses the ball as it kisses its gloves enroute the fence behind. Was that bat? Nope. Hit the pad. 89 more needed from 73 balls now.
  • 7.4Well played. Waits for the ball to come to him and dabs it to third man for a run.
  • 7.3Outside off, punched down to long on for a single.
  • 7.2The batsman has worked it off his pads behind square. One run added to the total.
  • 7.1On middle and leg, flicked away for a comfortable single.
  • Manish Pandey is the new man in at number 4, replacing his skipper.
  • 6.6OUT! Rohit departs cheaply tonight! The bounce does the trick again. Shanaka bangs it in short and the Indian captain goes for the pull. He is cramped a bit for room and miscues it to deep mid-wicket. Kusal Perera is stationed at the boundary and it should have been a fairly simple catch but somehow he misjudges it. Eventually he takes it at the last moment, needing to dive forward for the catch. Do Sri Lanka believe? Not a bad start at all. India need 97 from 78 balls... 39/2
  • 6.5Banged in short, pulled to deep mid-wicket for a run.
  • 6.4Full on middle, flicked straight to short mid-wicket.
  • 6.3Outside off, this time Shreyas gets right behind the line and defends.
  • 6.2Outside off, Iyer looks to run it down to third man but there is no feet movement and he misses.
  • 6.1A short ball around middle, Rohit looks to tuck it fine but the ball goes off his gloves, onto his thigh and goes towards square leg. A single taken.
  • Dasun Shanaka is the third bowling change in the last three overs.
  • 5.6Full on middle, clipped straight to short mid-wicket. 11 from the over, India end the Powerplay on 37/1. 37/1
  • 5.5Full and outside off, Iyer drives it beautifully through the covers but does not have enough on it to get a boundary. Nearly collides with Pradeep while turning for the second but completes it eventually. 99 more needed from 85 balls now.
  • 5.4Outside off, steered to third man quietly for a single.
  • 5.3FOUR! Brilliant timing! The ball is straighter, fuller as well but Rohit does not go too hard at it. Just flicks it through square leg and there is millions of real estate available. Rarely found in Mumbai but Thisara has kept plenty of that at the Wankhede. How can a Mumbaikar miss out? Rohit does not either.
  • 5.2FOUR! Not quite well hit but since it is the Powerplay, Rohit gets a boundary. The ball is dropped short on middle and the Indian skipper instantly goes for the pull but the bounce does him in. However, the miscue goes over mid-wicket and he gets a boundary. 106 more needed from 88 balls now.
  • 5.1A length ball in line of the stumps, watchfully defended.
  • Nuwan Pradeep is on as well.
  • 4.6Comes back in a long way, Iyer falls over in his attempt to flick and is hit on the pads. Thisara appeals a bit late but the umpire shakes his head. 26/1
  • 4.5That ball has taken the inside edge onto the pads.
  • 4.4Pushes this straight to point.
  • 4.3On middle and leg, tucked away for a single to the leg side.
  • 4.2Oohhh... this one comes back in a long way, Sharma is cut into half as he looks to defend and the ball goes just over the stumps.
  • 4.1FOUR! TAKE THAT! Welcome into the attack, mate! Short and wide outside off, gentle gentle gentle loosener but Rohit is not at all gentle. Smashes that through point and gets a boundary.
  • Thisara Perera brings himself on now.
  • 3.6Short and wide outside off, Shreyas misses out, slashing hard but making contact with thin air. Just one bad ball in that over and a wicket as well for Chameera. 21/1
  • 3.5On middle and off, clipped straight to short mid-wicket.
  • 3.4Full and outside off, left alone.
  • 3.3FOUR! Gets too straight, does Chameera and it is Merry Christmas for Shreyas Iyer. Flicks it through mid-wicket and gets the gift as a boundary.
  • Shreyas Iyer walks in at number 3, replacing Rahul.
  • 3.2OUT! Umpire's call it is and the decision stays! Wow. India have lost a wicket. That looked so, so not out to the naked eye. Pitched outside off, coming in a long way, hitting the batsman almost around leg stump. Rahul missed his flick and was hit on the pads. Chameera kept on appealing and eventually the umpire raised his finger. Even on the replays, it seems like the ball will go past the leg stump. But, Hawk Eye shows the ball to be clipping the top of leg stump, which means umpire's call. Rahul will consider himself unlucky. One of those rare LBW reviews where a batsman takes instantaneously, without even consulting his partner. Early strike for Sri Lanka.
  • Rahul has been adjudged LBW! He seems confident though that it is not the right decision as he has reviewed it straightaway...
  • 3.1On a length outside off, cutting back in, Rahul hops and taps it towards extra cover.
  • 2.6Outside off, pushed towards long on for a run. 13 from that over. 17/0
  • 2.5The batsman has driven it through mid on. They pick up a single.
  • 2.4SIX! Number 65 for Rohit in 2017 across formats. This is another leggie, outside off but this time Rohit is to the pitch of the ball. Hits it cleanly through the line and gets it over long off!
  • 2.3Full and around middle, well blocked out.
  • 2.2FOUR! Not pretty well hit but he finds the gap. Floated on off, seemed to be a leg break, Rohit got down and slog swept it over mid-wicket. His intention was much squarer but he will take the boundary. 127 more needed from 106 balls now.
  • 2.1Full on middle, clipped through mid-wicket for a single.
  • 1.6Outside off, punched straight to short extra cover. Not a bad start by the opening bowlers. 4/0
  • 1.5Now Rohit flashes at one and misses. This was short and wide though, outside off but Sharma was beaten by pace and bounce on his attempted slash.
  • 1.4Landed outside off, this time Rahul sensibly pushes the ball to third man and gets a single.
  • 1.3Rash shot. A length ball outside off, LR just flays at that without moving his feet and misses the ball by a long, long way.
  • 1.2Around off, watchfully defended this time.
  • 1.1Beauty! Full and outside off, Rahul looks to defend but the ball swings away past the outside edge.
  • Dushmantha Chameera to bowl from the other end.
  • 0.6DROPPED! Dananjaya nearly had his man. He bowled a leg spinner this time and Rohit was down the track again. He hit this very hard but back to the bowler. The bowler leaped with all his might but the ball brushed only his fingertips and went to mid off. Very difficult chance. But a very good over from the spinner. 3/0
  • 0.5The batsman rocks onto the back foot and punches the ball. They pick up a single.
  • 0.4Full on middle, Sharma comes down the track and flicks it through mid-wicket for the first run of the bat in this innings.
  • 0.3How is he not bowled? On most pitches, that would have hit the timber. The googly on middle, Rohit looks to defend but leaves a truckload of a gap between bat and pad. The ball sneaks through but bounces over the stumps!
  • 0.2Outside off, dabbed straight to the off side.
  • 0.1Full on middle, flicked straight to short mid-wicket.
  • 0.1WIDE. That turned a long way. Dananjaya bowls this around off and then gets it to spin it well past the leg stump.
  • A spinner to start off proceedings again for Sri Lanka. Akila Dananjaya has the new ball in his hand and he will bowl to Rohit first up...
  • The players are already back out in the middle. They already seem dejected, the Lankans. Hopefully, they provide a fight with the ball. Out come the Indian openers, amidst some cheers from the crowd. Rohit Sharma and Lokesh Rahul walk out to the middle. A challenge for them would be to win by 10 wickets. Possible? Let us find out...
