December 22, 2017  21:20

SL 42-1 (5 ovs )vs India 260-5 | Scorecard

Left-arm pacer Jaydev Unadkat opens the bowling for India, who are defending a huge score.

Niroshan Dickwella on the attack from the word go as he looks to scoop the first ball over the wicketkeeper but ends up hitting it towards fine leg for a single.

Upul Tharanga is beaten off the next ball before he takes one followed by three more singles for five runs from the opening over.

The impressive Jasprit Bumrah from the other end. He starts with a yorker as Dickwella manages to keep it out and is dropped off the next ball as KL Rahul puts down a tough running catch at square leg.

He then makes India pay further as he flicks the next ball over the leg side for a six followed by three singles to get 11 from the over.

Dickwella attacks Unadkat as he chips down the track and lofts it over the off-side for a four and then slashes the next ball past point for the same result.

Sri Lanka off to a good start as they race to 27 for no loss in three overs, but that is still not enough with the required run rate at the start being 13.

Unadkat makes the breakthrough with the wicket of the dangerous Dickwella, who lofts it straight to the fielder at deep square leg after scoring 25 from 19 balls.
