Openers Rohit, Dhawan give India a good startJune 08, 2017 15:47
India 48-0 (10 ovs) vs SL | Scorecard
Nuwan Pradeep comes into the attack in place of Lakmal, who bowled three overs with the new ball.
Dhawan taps the first ball on the off-side and steals a quick single. Rohit attempts another quick run and has a close have. Pradeep does well to get to the ball quickly on his follow through but he misses with the direct hit with Rohit struggling to make his crease.
Two more singles as four come from the over with India's openers doing well to deny Sri Lanka the early wickets while also lay down a solid platform.
Change of ends for Lakmal, who takes over from Malinga, who bowled four overs in his first spell.
After a few quiet overs, Rohit lifts the mood in the Indian camp as he pulls a short ball from Lakmal over square leg for a four.
A couple of singles before Rohit slaps a short wide delivery through the covers for the second four of the over.
Pradeep does well to concede just two runs in his second over as India reach 48 for no loss in 10 overs.
Once again, the two openers have done well to see off the new ball and lay a good foundation with Rohit scoring 20 from 25 balls and and Dhawan stroking 28 from 35 balls.
