SL 140-4 (35 ovs) vs India | Scorecard
Axar bowling to his field and sending down a lot of dot balls to build up the pressure. A couple of singles before Thirimanne paddles the last ball fine for a couple against the left-arm spinner.
Chahal comes back, replacing Pandya, who has bowled eight overs for 42 runs.
India's sloppy fielding gifts Mathews a much-needed single as Axar sends down an unwanted throw from mid-off, hitting the stumps direct and giving away a run.
Chahal drops short as Mathews pulls it over midwicket for a much-needed boundary for Sri Lanka.
Part-time off-spinner Kedar Jadhav comes into the attack. He makes a good start, bowling five dot balls to Thirimanne, who manages just a single from the last ball.
Chahal has an appeal for LBW turned down against Thirimanne as the left-hander tries to reverse but misses. Two balls later, he comes down the track and heaves it over midwicket for a six followed by three singles to get nine from the over.
Jadhav makes a key strike with the ball, with the wicket of Mathews, who plays a rash to give his wicket away. The right-hander looks to play the reverse sweep but misses and is given out leg before wicket as he decides to take the DRS despite it look dead plumb.
As expected the referral goes against Sri Lanka and Mathews has to make his way after a poor innings of 11 from 23 balls with Sri Lanka slipping to 138 for four in the 35th over.
