June 08, 2017  21:21

SL 171-2 (28 ovs) vs India 321-6 | Scorecard

Bumrah bowls a tight over, giving away just two runs, as Sri Lanka cruise to 143 for one in 25 overs, needing 179 from the remaining 25 overs.

Pandya comes back after an expensive first spell from Jadeja, hitting 36 runs from four overs.

But Pandya also suffers as Mendis hits him for a hat-trick of fours. He slams the fourth ball straight back past the bowler for a boundary before top edging the next ball over the keeper for the same result. The last ball is again a bit short and Mendis pulls it behind square for the third four of the over.

A desperate introduce part-time off-spinner Kedar Jadhav, who has in the past taken crucial wickets and broken partnerships in the middle overs.

He bowls a quiet over, giving away just four singles in his first over.

Kumble takes a gamble, as he brings himself into the attack. The first ball is a long hop as Mendis pulls it on the leg side for a four but the over does produce a wicket.

Against the run of play, Sri Lanka lose the wicket of Gunathilaka, who is run out after a sparkling innings of 76 trying to go for a tight second run to fine leg.

He has put Sri Lanka in control, adding 158 runs in 23 overs for the second wicket with Mendis, who is batting on 74.

Kusal Perera gets off the mark with a single from the last ball.
