Rohit hits half-century to rally India
August 27, 2017  20:39

India 102-4 (23 ovs) vs SL 217-9 | Scorecard

Dhoni has looked comfortable against Dananjaya in this game and he also dealt with him quite well in the previous match. Maybe KL Rahul and Jadhav can watch videos of his batting against the spinner and learn something.

A single each for Dhoni and Rohit as India reach 87 for four in 20 overs, needing 131 runs in 30 overs for victory.

Left-arm spinner Milinda Siriwardana comes into the attack. Three dot balls in a row before Rohit lofts him over mid-on for a four and then picks a single after the fielder is pushed back.

Rohit getting a move on here, not letting the spinners settle down. Siriwardana also helps him by dropping short which the India opener cuts past point for a four.

On the other end, Dhoni goes about his job of collecting the singles and giving the strike back to the free-flowing Rohit.

Three more singles after the boundary as India cross the 100-run mark in the 23rd over.
