Rohit, Dhoni put India in control
August 27, 2017  21:11

India 148-4 (32 ovs) vs SL 217-9 | Scorecard

Just a couple of overs for Malinga before Chameera comes back. Rohit plays an uppish shot past point as the fielder dives but in vain for a couple of runs to the deep.

Two balls later, he lofts a full delivery over mid-on for a four and then steers the last ball to deep point for one.

Rohit has looked in total control from the start to score 87 from 102 balls, while Dhoni has made 23 to take India to 137 for four in 30 overs.

They need another 81 runs from 20 overs for victory at just over four runs per over.

Two singles from Siriwardana's next over, who has done a steady job but not looked too threatening.

A desperate Sri Lanka bring back their wicket-taking option Dananjaya as they attempt to break this partnership.

Rohit goes after the young spinner as he comes down the track and lofts the spinner over midwicket for a six to take his score into the 90s.

India are back in control as they reach 148 for four in 32 overs, needing another 70 runs for victory at under four per over.
