India 200-1 (16 ovs) vs SL | Scorecard
Mahendra Singh Dhoni, promoted to No. 3, wastes no time in getting going. He slaps a full delivery from Dananjaya straight down the ground for a four and then gets the next over the off-side for another boundary.
Three singles from the rest of the over as Dananjaya goes for 11 in the 14th over.
In the next over, Rahul heaves Pradeep over the leg side for a four to bring up his fifty in style. Interestingly, Rahul completed his fifty from 35 balls, the same number of deliveries that Rohit took to get his hundred.
A couple of wides from Pradeep before Rahul pulls a short ball over square leg for a six and gets an inside edge off the last ball for another four as 19 comes from the over.
Perera trying to mix up things as he bowls a lot of slower balls. Dhoni is hit on the pads as Sri Lanka take the DRS but the ball is missing the leg stump and the review is turned down.
He bowls a leg side wide to Rahul as India bring up their 200 in the 16th over.
