India 430-9 (115 ovs) vs SL | Scorecard

Mohammed Shami gets off the with a single on the off-side before Pandya turns the last ball of Pushpakumara's over on the leg side for another single to retain strike.

Shami throws his bat to a wide delivery from Sandakan as he gets it over the of-side for a four.

Two balls later, Pandya smashes the chinaman spinner over long-on for a six followed by two runs to thirdman.

A single off Pushpakumara in the next over brings up Pandya's half-century from 61 balls, playing a vital hand once again to boost India's total.

In the same over, Shami survives a confident shout for leg before wicket as he got an inside edge.

However, Shami falls in the next over, caught and bowled by Sandakan for eight as he hits it back powerfully but the spinner manages to hold on.

Lastman Umesh Yadav takes a single to bring Pandya back on strike, who jumps down the track and blasts the fifth ball straight down the ground for a six.

Sandakan bowls it on the pads as Pandya flicks it to deep midwicket for a single to keep strike.
