SL 290-3 (45 ovs) vs India 321-6 | Scorecard

Bhuvneshwar is lucky that the injured Perera is unable to make most of a full toss as he hits to thirdman on the bounce for just one.

Bhuvi bowling good line and length and not allowing more than a single to give away just six runs from his eighth over including a wide.

Sri Lanka now need 51 from seven overs for victory as Perera retires hurt after a good innings of 47 from 44 balls.

Asila Gunaratne comes out to the middle to replace Perera, who needed help to get to the dressing room after what looks like a hamstring tear.

That has affected Sri Lanka's momentum as Gunaratne is beaten off the first three balls before he pulls Umesh over fine leg for a six followed by two singles to get eight from the over.

Gunaratne looking to play positively as he clips Bhuvneshwar on the leg side for a couple before he pulls the next ball for a four as the asking rate creeps below six.

He makes room and crunches the last ball past point for another four to get 11 from the over.

Sri Lanka are 290 for three in 45 overs, needing 32 runs from the last five overs for victory.
