All|Overs 1-50
4

to Rahul, FOUR, Rahul is off the mark with a first ball four. The ball swung, but it was short and wide, Rahul delayed the square cut and slashed it over backward point. No sweeper for KL and that's an easy boundary

4

to Rohit, FOUR, Malinga at short fine puts in a lazy dive and allows the ball to escape. Glanced to his right and a bit more effort would've seen him save three runs. India off to a flier

4

to Rahul, FOUR, beautiful lofted square drive. The length and line was there, floated full outside off, Rahul opens the face of the bat and lifts it over backward point. Runs away

W

to Rohit, out Caught by Thisara Perera!! strikes. Takes out his MUM skipper. Rohit has this tendency to go for the pull even to good length deliveries and this is one such case. The top edge is skied and Thisara calls for it from mid-on and reverse-cups with ease. The Lankans mob . Big wicket that. Rohit c Thisara Perera b 9(8) [4s-1]

4

to Rahul, FOUR, Rahul is batting well and picking everything. Went back as soon as he saw the slower delivery, crashed it well wide of sweeper and delayed the shot to hit it in the gap

OT

to Kohli, 1 run, risky, risky run. Turned to Mathews at mid-wicket and Kohli has to put in the hard yards once more. A direct hit and he may well have been gone. Had to really stretch in the end to slide his bat in. Replays show that it was mighty close had it hit

W

to Rahul, out Caught by Shanaka!! Spectacular catch. At cover. Made to look even better by that extravagant dive. But he has held on and that's what counts. And is dabbing away. Not in the Paul Pogba range, but certainly knows how to celebrate. Rahul failed to keep the cover drive down and held with two hands to his left. This Lankan outfit can certainly field. Rahul c Shanaka b 24(18) [4s-3]

6

to Kohli, SIX, that's Kohli at his awesome best. Saw the tossed up delivery and danced out, lofted cleanly over long-on. He knew the moment he hit the ball that it was going all the way. Put his head down and didn't even admire the shot

4

to Kohli, FOUR, smartly done. Used all of 's pace and dabbed it fine, was outside off, Kohli opened the bat face and got it wide of short third. Ran away

4

Perera to Kohli, FOUR, what a shot. This was a short of length delivery heading into the hips, what does Kohli do? just a nonchalant cross-batted whip and the ball scurries away behind square leaving deep square a spectator

4

Perera to Kohli, FOUR, masterly batting. Waits for the slower delivery outside off and then punches with sheer timing to beat deep cover and long-off. Pinpoint placement. Can't get any better than that

4

Perera to M Pandey, FOUR, typical Pandey. He loves the leg-side. A cross-batted heave to a slower delivery and the fielder at deep mid-wicket is in a few paces from the fence, has to go to his right and leap at the right time, does but the ball clears him and runs away to the fence. Costly opening over from Perera

4

to Kohli, FOUR, my word! Myyyy worddddd! As Athar would describe that shot. What can anyone do to such genius batting. Was just a flick of the wrists, but he has the wrists of god. The ball races off the middle of the bat and by the time Malinga dives at long-on, the ball has already crossed the ropes. A step forward and then knifed the ball, did Kohli. Unreal stuff this

6

to M Pandey, SIX, pitched up outside off, Pandey goes over long-off and finally gets a good part of the bat, it sails all the way. Hung back and then didn't hold back as he saw the full ball. Mid-off was in too and that gave him the license to go for it

4

to M Pandey, FOUR, that's another of Pandey's unconventional shots, but it's mighty effective, he may look ugly, ungainly, but he keeps making runs and that's what you want. Steps out and slashes the short of length delivery when he is airborne. Speeds away past point

OT

to Kohli, 2 runs, makes room and gives himself the arm-space to drive inside out, beats extra cover again and it is two more. Fifty too for Kohli. It has been an effortless innings. No slogging, no fancy shots attempted. Pure textbook stuff. A certain Kane Williamson would approve

4

to Kohli, FOUR, smashed. On the prowl is Kohli. A step or two out and clobbered past 's left hand. Long-off had no chance

4

to Kohli, FOUR, hope umpire Ruchira Palliyaguruge has a good life insurance plan in place. For he was in danger there. Real danger. But kudos to him for having a smile after getting up. He is thankful that the ball has missed him. Full and Kohli throttled that with extreme power, Palliyaguruge had no time to react and just about avoided the missile. Bullets to the fence

OT

to Kohli, 1 run, yorker length on the stumps, dug out to mid-wicket and one can see umpire Ruchira Palliyaguruge still smiling while handing the cap to at the end of the over

4

to Kohli, FOUR, woah! Woah! One can keep wowing and woahing at this. This man is something else. It was a full delivery outside off, and he has uncorked the wrists at the right time to send it over deep mid-wicket. No backlift at all and sheer arrogance from Kohli. Reminds one of the great Sir Viv. A fist pump to show his delight at getting the boundary. He sure liked that. He is flowing now and in this mood, is basically unstoppable

W

to Kohli, out Caught by Shanaka!! Has he got it all the way? No. Caught on the fence at deep mid-wicket. He is upset that he hasn't finished it off. Goes off cursing himself. Full on the stumps, flicked in the air, but too much height rather than elevation and well held by the deep fielder. One feels it is too late in the day for Sri Lanka. Let's see. Kohli c Shanaka b 82(54) [4s-7 6s-1]

4

to M Pandey, FOUR, too easy. Short ball as the slower delivery sat up to be hit. Pandey waited and wait and pummelled it wide of the diving extra cover fielder, who dived but the pace on it beat him. No chance for the sweeper as well

4

Perera to M Pandey, FOUR, yes he can! What a way to end the game and the series. Sri Lanka have been "Indiawashed." One has to feel sorry for Tharanga. He cuts a forlon figure but Kohli is happy, he is out on the field hugging his players. This is how the winning hit came: Full outside off, with mid-off up, Pandey launched it over the fielder's head and with that blow, Pandey gets to his maiden T20I fifty and India win the lone T20 international

4

to Dickwella, FOUR, gets under the slower delivery, was on leg-stump, flicked up and over square leg. Well wide of fine leg and that's the first boundary of the match

4

to Dickwella, FOUR, well played. doesn't learn. Again the slower delivery on the stumps, Dickwella pre-meditated the paddle-scoop and went across to lap it fine. Well over and wide of the keeper

4

to Dickwella, FOUR, hat-trick of boundaries. Same old story. Short fine is inside the ring and square leg back. This slower delivery is around the fourth-stump, Dickwella kneels down low and paddle-scoops it wide of Axar. That gets the crowd going

4

to Tharanga, FOUR, fabulous pull shot. It was a back of a length delivery around off, Tharanga smashed that over mid-wicket. Went back and picked the length and off she went

W

to Tharanga, out Bowled!! Cleaned him up. The stumps are in a sorry mess. The knuckle delivery, released with almost a vertical seam, but it swings beautifully in and is through the defences of Tharanga who was looking to play across the line. Went a bit too early on the shot and the ball found its way through. Top delivery to get the opening wicket. Tharanga b 5(4) [4s-1]

4

to Munaweera, FOUR, what a way to get off the mark. That's a Test match shot. Driven on the rise. went full around off and was met with a glorious cover drive by Munaweera, no-one moved as it ghosted past a host of fielders on the off-side

4

to Munaweera, FOUR, more of a slog that. But he has connected well enough to get four. The knuckle ball on off, swiped over square leg

6

to Munaweera, SIX, smashing hit. In-to-out. And dropped by the kid outside the boundary line. Tossed up on off and Munaweera didn't hold back. Superb lofted inside out hit. Went all the way. All class from Munaweera

6

to Munaweera, SIX, wow! Too full by , the right length for Munaweera to get under, moves outside leg and then lofts it straight back over the bowler's head. Clean strike too

W

to Dickwella, out Bowled!! What was that? And mocks Dickwella as he celebrates by clapping. A brainburst from Dickwella. With a host of fielders on the off-side, he was trying to reverse-lap a full delivery on off-stump wide of short third. The pace of the ball meant he couldn't get bat on it, and it crashed into the stump to leave him dead. He stands there for a while unable to believe what he has done. But kept his cool to deliver the blow. Dickwella b 17(14) [4s-3]

4

to Mathews, FOUR, slides down leg and a gentle glance by Mathews, runs away to the fine leg fence. Not a good start for

4

to Munaweera, FOUR, sliding into Munaweera on a good length, heaved away powerfully wide of mid-wicket and deep mid-wicket can't get there in time. Another boundary

4

to Munaweera, FOUR, good use of the feet and a one bounce over the ropes four. Down the track and to the pitch before lofting cleanly over mid-off

W

to Mathews, out Stumped!! MS has gone up for a stumping appeal. He is so quick. Mathews looks not so confident. Front foot is fine. Looks gone. It's on the line. The back foot of Mathews that is. Tough call for the third umpire. The foot slid out and even though Mathews tried to push it back in, the bails were off. The line belongs to the umpire. The man in the box is having a lot of looks at the replays. Will take his time as it's a big moment in the game. OUT! The Sri Lankan fans can't believe it as they see the decision flashed on the big screen. This is what happened: A tossed up leggie outside off, ripped past the outside edge of the bat, MS gathered it and removed the bails off with absolutely zero followthrough. Only he can do that in the world. Peerless stumping! And India fighting back here. Mathews st Dhoni b 7(5) [4s-1]

6

to Munaweera, SIX, he did that to before and again he does the same. Use of the feet and made the room to free his arms, inside out over cover and all the way

6

to Munaweera, SIX, fourth six for Munaweera and all of them have come against . The use of the feet was key here, down the track and hit bang straight over the sightscreen. Didn't hold back once he got to the pitch

4

to Munaweera, FOUR, shows off his cheeky skills here by taking it almost from MS's gloves. The former Indian captain applauds even though Munaweera has glided that to the third man fence. The fielder gave chase but was slow to get there. The latest of late dabs

6

Yadav to Priyanjan, SIX, there comes the release shot. Dragged down on the stumps, Priyanjan is quick to go back and smash the pull, connected well and it went all the way over deep mid-wicket. The pressure valve has been stopped for a while

OT

to Munaweera, 1 run, 50 for Munaweera! His mates and the crowd applaud the effort. Bat raised and celebrating is Munaweera. Tucks this to deep backward square leg to get to the landmark

W

Yadav to Munaweera, out Bowled!! Hahahaha! What was that? Even the super cool MS is taken aback by that. Munaweera swung so hard that he swiped the bat to square leg, the ball came much later and kissed the stumps. What put off MS was the bat flying away and the bail lighting up and wooshing past his eye. He sticks his tongue out and the Indians have a giggle about it. Well bowled by Yadav, bowled it so slow that he beat Munaweera completely and in the end got his reward. Well played though by Munaweera - he has done his bit. Comical way to get out though! Munaweera b Yadav 53(29) [4s-5 6s-4]

6

to Thisara Perera, SIX, that fumble has resulted in a six. Tossed up and the room was there for Thisara Perera to swing his arms and he belted that way over long-on

W

to Thisara Perera, out Bowled!! Dragged on and Thisara Perera is livid with himself. Swings the bat hard in disgust as he walks off. A shortened length outside off, Thisara Perera went for the cut and chopped it back on. End of story. Thisara Perera b 11(7) [6s-1]

W

to Shanaka, out Lbw!! Gone now. No doubts about that. The umpire had his finger up in a flash. The googly again, came back in, Shanaka played down the wrong line, struck on the back leg - right in front and it doesn't get any easier than that. has been expensive today, but has picked wickets too. That's his USP. Shanaka lbw b 0(3)

4

Yadav to Prasanna, FOUR, Chahal is not the greatest in the field and here he makes a meal of a catch. Was a pull, didn't go straight to hand, he had to run to his left from deep square, was slow to react and the ball didn't even touch his fingers as he tumbled and it escaped to the fence. Kohli isn't happy at all and changes the leggie's fielding position

W

Yadav to Prasanna, out Caught by Kohli!! A shortish googly and Prasanna falls on the pull. Should've been out earlier in the over, now finds the Indian captain at deep mid-wicket with a weak hit. A dolly and he won't drop that. SL sink further. Prasanna c Kohli b Yadav 11(8) [4s-1]

6

to Udana, SIX, slogged and slogged well. Was the slower delivery and Udana picked it, hit it over wide long-on. Connected meatily for a six and that's a much needed hit for Sri Lanka

4

to Udana, FOUR, low full-toss on the stumps, Udana cleared his front leg and smashes it wide of mid-off, who was inside the ring. Tonked it right into the gap. He can strike them

4

to Udana, FOUR, banged in short on the stumps, Udana swings again and gets lucky. The top edge lobs MS and short third, runs away to the fence. Consecutive fours for Udana and these are much needed runs for Sri Lanka

4

to Priyanjan, FOUR, make that three in a row. This is the best of the lot. followed the backing away Priyanjan, but the batsman was too good. Reverse-lapped it over short third. Turned his bat face around so quickly and got it off the middle of the bat. Suddenly the crowd are buzzing

6

to Priyanjan, SIX, that's what Sri Lanka needed and their fans are dancing away. Picks the knuckle length delivery and biffs it over wide long-on. Enough to get a biggie
