Yuvraj fails with the bat, India 3 downJune 08, 2017 17:41
India 188-3 (35 ovs) vs SL | Scorecard
Yuvraj struggling to get going, especially against off-spinner Gunathilaka, who has beaten him a few times.
Perera and Gunathilaka build the pressure bowling a few tight overs in succession, with just 12 runs coming from the last four overs.
While Dhawan has been going on quite well on 84 from 97 balls, but Yuvraj has struggled to get started, scoring seven from 17 balls.
Part-time medium pacer Asila Gunaratne comes into the attack. And he strikes in his very first over with the wicket of Yuvraj, who drags a full delivery back on to his stumps to end a struggling innings of seven from18 balls.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni walks in at No. 5 to a huge cheer from the Oval crowd.
Two balls later, Gunaratne has a huge appeal for LBW turned down against Dhoni as the Sri Lankans decide to take the DRS.
A poor review from the Lankans as the ball had clearly pitched outside the leg stump.
A good start from Gunaratne as he concedes just a single while picking up the key wicket of Yuvraj.
Pacer Lakmal comes back as Dhawan turns the first ball on the leg side for one. He bowls one short and wide as Dhoni slashes it over point fence for a six to get off the mark in smashing fashion.
