Bumrah bowls a no-ball but makes a good comeback as the free hit delivery is a perfect yorker with Mendis taking a tumble as he keeps it out somehow.

Mendis takes on Jadeja yet again as he heaves him over midwicket for a six to complete his fifty in grand style, from 65 balls.

Two balls later Gunathilaka plays the reverse sweep for a boundary past short thirdman and then cuts the last ball for another four to get 16 runs from the over.

Sri Lanka looking in control at the moment as they reach 141 for one in 24 overs with Mendis on 53 and Gunathilaka on 68.
