Gunathilaka has a huge appeal for LBW rejected against Dhawan, who goes for the sweep but fails to make connection.

At the first drinks break, India have cruised along to 86 for no loss in 17 overs.
Medium pacer Perera, who bowled just one over in his first spell, comes back. He has a huge appeal for LBW turned down against Rohit, who then takes apart the medium pacer in his next over.
A short ball is pulled over square leg where the fielder Asila Gunaratne manages to judge the ball as he takes the catch but ends up deflecting the ball over the fence to give away a six.
