India 12-0 (4 ovs) vs SL | Scorecard

Suranga Lakmal to bowl the second over. He makes the error of dropping one short and wide as Dhawan crashes it past point for a four to get off the mark in style.

Two balls later, Dhawan repeats the shot but this time he gets just two runs as the fielder at point half stops it.

In the next over, Rohit steers a wide delivery from Malinga to thirdman for a single and Dhawan picks one off the next ball.

Dhawan again looks to hit Lakmal square on the off-side but Sri Lanka have an extra fielder in the short point region, who does well to stop the shot and save a certain boundary.

Lakmal does well to adjust his line and come closer to the stumps as Dhawan can only defend to give away a maiden over.
