Kuldeep to start off proceedings in the post-tea session. Dickwella taps the third ball to point for a single before Chandimal is beaten by the googly which goes straight on.

It is Hardik from the other end. Dickwella picks another single on the off-side before Chandimal plays a nice cover drive for two runs. He chases the last ball which is wide but ends up getting beaten.

Chandimal goes after the young Kuldeep as he cuts a short ball through the off-side for a four. The next ball is pitched right up as Chandimal smashes it through the covers for a four and two balls later he slams it straight down the ground for the third four of the over.

Dickwella goes after Pandya as he smashes the fast bowler over mid-on for a four and Chandimal drives the last ball for a four through covers as Sri Lanka reach 99 for four in 20 overs.

Kuldeep strikes with the wicket of the aggressive Dickwella who comes down the track but is beaten and is stumped after scoring 29. The googly completely deceived the left-hander who had charged down a long way as the ball went in between the bat and pads and wicketkeeper Saha completed an easy stumping.
