India 116-5 (17 ovs) vs SL 135-7 | Scorecard

Pradeep comes back as Pandey picks a single off the first ball and Dinesh Karthik turns the third ball square for two runs and then takes one.

Pandey then crashes a wide delivery through the covers for a four and picks a single to long-on.

Pandey playing a superb knock under pressure to keep India in the hunt in the run chase.

He has hit 32 from 28 balls to take the score to 108 for four in 16 overs, with 28 needed from four overs for victory.

Chameera comes back and strikes with the key wicket of Pandey, who was looking set to take India to victory.

The pacer gets one to jag back sharply as Pandey tries to play from the crease but is beaten and is bowled after a good innings of 32 from 29 balls.

Chameera nearly gets another one as Dhoni gets a thick outside edge which beats a diving wicketkeeper Dickwella and goes for a boundary.

Two balls later, he hits Dhoni on the pads with a full incoming delivery as the umpire turns down the LBW appeal but the Sri Lankans take the DRS.

But the bounce of the Wankhede wicket saves Dhoni with the ball tracker showing that the ball would have gone over the stumps.

The match is still interestingly poised with India needing 20 runs from the last three overs for victory.
