D

to Tharanga, no run, Pandey almost gets to this one. Length ball that kicked off. Tharanga was trying to defend but the ball popped off the shoulder of the bat and flew to the left of the second slip. Manish over-reached it and got it well behind his left palm. Will go down as a drop

4

to Tharanga, FOUR, that will run away. Fine leg was inside the ring and bowled it on the hips of Tharanga, who just had to help it with a half-pull

W

Pandya to Tharanga, out Caught by Karthik!! That's a tame dismissal. Tharanga stood leg-side to this cutter, the ball holds up a bit. Tries to force but does not get anywhere close to the middle of the bat, ends up hitting it straight to the fielder at cover. Dinesh Karthik has a safe pair of hands. Tharanga c Karthik b Pandya 7(14) [4s-1]

4

Pandya to Gunathilaka, FOUR, length ball and Gunathilaka launches with a straight bat. Hit him pretty high on the bat and did not have the timing at all. But with mid-off being in the ring, that could still roll down to the fence

W

to Gunathilaka, out Caught by Dhoni!! That's a lucky wicket for . Slipped it down leg. Gunathilaka tried to glance, but got faintest of bats and Dhoni had moved across to grab that one. is elated and so are the Indians. Too early to say but Sri Lanka seem to have given up already. Gunathilaka c Dhoni b 16(19) [4s-1]

4

to Thirimanne, FOUR, finally a boundary ball. Short ball and Thirimanne pulls over the man at mid-wicket. Races away to the fence

4

to Mathews, FOUR, plenty of width outside off, Mathews camps back and flays square on the off-side. Sweetly timed

W

Sundar to Thirimanne, out Bowled!! Maiden international wicket for the 18-year old; off the 9th delivery he bowled. What.A.Moment. A ridiculous shot by Thirimanne. Runs out of ideas and looks to jailbreak with a reverse slap-sweep. Misses the line completely. It was nicely slowed up and extracted very minimal amount of spin off the pitch to crash the top of off. Clatterrr... Thirimanne b Sundar 21(35) [4s-1]

4

Sundar to Dickwella, FOUR, comes dancing down the pitch, takes it on the full and exquisite timing takes over. Driven straight down the ground, what a way to get off the mark. Typical Dickwella approach

4

to Mathews, FOUR, attempted yorker, slips out of 's fingers and ends up as a full toss which Mathews punishes through mid-wicket. Biff. Take four!

4

to Mathews, FOUR, pulls and gets a thick top-edge. Washington Sundar at deep backward square overruns, that'll be four. Good attempt by to bowl a short one, but got the line slightly wrong

4

to Dickwella, FOUR, stands way outside leg stump, gets his desired view of the delivery and belts the drive through the covers. Fearless batting this

6

Sundar to Mathews, SIX, gets underneath the flight, clears his front leg and deposits it for a 85-metre maximum over long-on

4

Sundar to Dickwella, FOUR, gets as low as possible and places the ball to perfection. Reverse sweep, executed with sheer hand-eye co-ordination past short third

4

Pandya to Mathews, FOUR, loses control now. Tries the short ball and bowls it wide of off, Mathews transfers his weight onto the back foot and whacks the pull in front of square

4

to Dickwella, FOUR, 1000 ODI runs for Niroshan Dickwella! Gets down early, sees the line and uses his bottom hand power to slam the sweep to the fine leg fence

W

to Dickwella, out Caught by Washington Sundar!! This is what you get from players like Dickwella. Lot of promise and he gets out in a bizarre fashion. Quicker delivery outside off, he goes for a cut and feeds a thick edge straight to Washington Sundar at short third. One of the easiest catches you'll ever see. Dickwella c Washington Sundar b 22(20) [4s-4]

4

Sundar to Gunaratne, FOUR, full ball, Gunaratne's eyes lit up and he smashes the drive. Put so much power in it, ended up slicing it off the outer edge past short third

4

Sundar to Gunaratne, FOUR, nails it this time. Smacks the sweep after changing his grip and slots it past a diving backward point. Raced away...

4

Sundar to Gunaratne, FOUR, he is having fun dancing around is Asela Gunaratne. Once again, switches his stance and nearly sweeps a full ball for a maximum. Just a couple of bounces before it went past the fence

4

Sundar to Gunaratne, FOUR, 100 plus ks, Gunaratne uses the pace and width to clatter the ball in the gap between backward point and short third. Three boundaries off the over

OT

to Mathews, 1 run, allows the ball to swerve in, dabs into the leg-side and sneaks a quick single to claim his 36th ODI fifty

4

to Mathews, FOUR, jumps out of his crease and clouts the length ball over extra cover. No-one in the deep

4

to Gunaratne, FOUR, switches on instinct. Goes with the turn. And sweeps it from well outside off, going uppish too. Sensible, with two men behind point staying inside the circle

W

to Gunaratne, out Stumped!! More extravaganza. Gunaratne looks to follow up his switch hit with a dance down the track. though slows it up, generously. An eternity to get there and Gunaratne was already through with one and a half swinging sixes. Spins past, and Dhoni's hands can shed their equation with the speed of light. The speed of sound would do just as well. Gunaratne st Dhoni b 34(30) [4s-5]

4

to Perera, FOUR, a first ball skip down, never close enough but he doesn't believe in holding back. Everything in this drill straight back, and enough of the toe end to beat everyone

W

to Perera, out Caught by Dhoni!! Batsman looking at the umpire. The bowler looking at the umpire. And when Dhoni dives and tumbles for the catch, it better be given. And ump Nandan obliges. Perera doesn't believe in hanging around. He goes for an almighty slog, the ball scoots under, takes the pad, pops up and kisses the glove before threatening to fall into the short leg region. Not before the big gloves come under. Perera c Dhoni b 5(3) [4s-1]

4

to Mathews, FOUR, the sweeping length. A dart too giving him all the pace. Mathews climbs on. Quickly getting on a knee and nailing it behind square

W

to Pathirana, out Caught by Dhawan!! Dhawan's thigh slap -- and it could mean only one thing. After the bouncer to soften him up, Bhuvi goes full in the sucker blow. Pathirana, very predictably makes room and looks to go through the line in his airy drive. Ends up with a tame chip down to mid-off. This is falling away, rather quickly. And drinks. Pathirana c Dhawan b 2(8)

4

to Mathews, FOUR, connects. Spots the knucke ball, takes it on with a skip to the pitch of the ball and smokes it uppishly. Over mid-on. Too little, too late

4

Sundar to Dananjaya, FOUR, nice chip. Showing his range with the bat, reaching out to the line to slice it over the man at cover. And the dew infested outfield takes care of the rest

4

Pandya to Mathews, FOUR, very fine. A nice cheeky nurdle after getting deep into the crease, and soft-wristing it away off the hips. Neat

4

to Dananjaya, FOUR, tries some innovation. Sways backwards, sticks his bat out in front of his tummy, ramping it at an angle to take it through the cordon

W

to Dananjaya, out Caught by Rohit!! He's thought him out. Messing around with his mind. After the toe-crushers, hurries into the ribs. An awkward attempt to see it away means his bat-splice come in the way. Fends it up and Rohit, keeping himself at a unique short backward square leg scoops it up. When things go your way .. Dananjaya c Rohit b 11(17) [4s-2]

4

Pandya to Mathews, FOUR, finally some intent. Realizes he's running out of partner to get to his century, and backs away, converts it into a juicy length and hammers it straight down

6

to Mathews, SIX, picks out the top-spinner. And picks the bones off it. Right to the pitch of it and tonks it into the sightscreen. It's to 97

OT

to Mathews, 2 runs, there's the century. He's hung in there..alas alone. He's nudged it through mid-wicket, and the hope of getting to the milestone makes him forget his injury. He sprints, stretches and makes it back. At a cost? Not this game, you worried freaks. He can barely celebrate, he doesn't bother either

6

Sundar to Mathews, SIX, into his pet zone. Bang in the slot, with the pace on the ball too. Long hands, swinging hands in depositing the ball into cow corner

4

to Dhawan, FOUR, what a shot first up! Not a half-volley from but it's a touch full, Dhawan gets the big stride forward and creams the drive. Bisects extra cover and mid-off with finesse. Top draw stuff and India are away

4

to Rohit, FOUR, a cracking stroke! Also goes to show how good this surface is. Gets a big stride forward to this length ball and slams the drive on the up. Wide of mid-off and it rockets away

4

to Rohit, FOUR, just wide of first slip! Nervy moment for Rohit, the pressure of dots was getting to him and he flashed hard on seeing the width. It was there to be put away but his execution went a bit awry. Luckily for him, it went well wide of the fielder and quite fine as well to beat third man

4

to Dhawan, FOUR, that's been banished to the fence! A typical Dhawan shot - total control and authority. Shortish and a fraction of width on offer, he frees his arms to blast this through the covers

4

to Dhawan, FOUR, up and over! For a while, Dhawan had been trying to use his feet and this time, makes the best contact. The fuller length helps his cause as he launches it cleanly over mid-off. Couple of bounces to the ropes

4

to Dhawan, FOUR, this is poor bowling from the SL skipper! The short ball at his pace is never going to threaten and he makes it worse by straying down the leg-side. Dhawan accepts the gift with a swivel pull to the fine leg fence

4

to Dhawan, FOUR, outside edge but nobody in the slips! Dhawan charges down the pitch and wants to drive on the up through the covers. Gets it off the thick edge and it goes very fine to the third man fence

4

to Dhawan, FOUR, finds the fence this time! Dhawan is on the charge now, he wants to put the pressure back on the Lankans. Sees the length short and swivels to pull it away. There is a man at fine leg but this was struck squarer

4

to Dhawan, FOUR, more runs! He split fine leg a couple of deliveries ago, this time gets it wide of third man. Shows you that is bowling all over the place. Short and wide, stays back and cuts it away elegantly through backward point. Races away

OT

to Dhawan, 2 runs, a bit of turn on the off break but it's too short, Dhawan slaps it off the back foot and beats cover to his right. Gets a brace by the time sweeper cover tidies up. 23rd ODI fifty for Dhawan, he loves this ground, made his Test debut memorable here with an epic knock

4

to Dhawan, FOUR, that made a cracking sound off the willow! Oh, my! isn't learning, he is banging them short and that's going to hurt on this pitch. Sits up nicely for Dhawan who is seeing them like a beach ball. Nails the pull over mid-wicket. All power and he's found the gap as well. Whoosh!

4

to Rohit, FOUR, excellent shot! Rohit sees the flight on offer and skips down the track in a jiffy, lifts it cleanly inside out over extra cover. Nobody in the deep and it races to the fence

4

to Rohit, FOUR, finds the gap this time! More of the shortish stuff and Rohit is already on the back foot. Cuts it beautifully to bisect backward point and short third man. Threads the tiny gap with ease and brings up the 100-run opening stand

4

to Rohit, FOUR, that's been dispatched! The Lankans are erring on the shorter side and paying the price heavily. Another half-tracker and well outside off, Rohit stays back and fetches it with a drop kick over mid-wicket. Races away to the fence

4

to Dhawan, FOUR, broomed away! Drifting in from round the wicket, pitches on middle and leg, Dhawan kneels down and sweeps it powerfully backward of square, no one protecting the fence there

W

to Dhawan, out Caught by Thirimanne!! Wicket against the run of play. It all happened so quickly that even the Sri Lankans needed time to realize they have a wicket. sees the batsman advance and fires it full on leg-stump, Dhawan still goes through with his whip and hits it towards short mid-wicket, Thirimanne dives to his right and pouches a sharp chance. It was traveling and Thirimanne made it look easy. Even though Dhawan's bat turned on impact, he had enough power, just no placement. The partnership is broken and is elated. Dhawan c Thirimanne b 68(67) [4s-9]

OT

to Rohit, 1 run, fifty for Rohit. 35th in ODIs and first as captain. He acknowledges the applause from the crowd and waves his bat around. Looking good after a cautious start. Flighted on off, Rohit pushes it down to long-off

4

to Shreyas Iyer, FOUR, he is an aggressive player by nature and he is showing that. Races down the wicket and gets close to the ball and lofts it handsomely over mid-on. Safe shot with the fielder inside the ring

4

to Shreyas Iyer, FOUR, short, wide and four. It was a real drag down delivery from , sat up nicely for Iyer, who bludgeoned the cut square of the wicket, giving sweeper no chance

6

to Rohit, SIX, looked like a mishit and it has carried over the rope with ease. Short of length just outside off, Rohit transfered his weight back and pulled it wide of long-on. It hit the higher bat of the bat but still managed to sail over

4

to Rohit, FOUR, poor follow-up delivery. Short and down leg, hardly bounced over the waist, Rohit is on the front foot to pull, a swivel helps him find the gap backward of square, split the two fielders expertly. Thisara not happy with his bowler

4

to Rohit, FOUR, is dishing out rubbish. Once again well down leg, Rohit unlike Iyer decides to play, leans across and glances it fine. No chance for Pathirana to hunt that down

4

to Shreyas Iyer, FOUR, neatly done. Waited and waited till the last second for the back of a length delivery, opens the bat face and delicately steers it to third man, very fine and the fielder had no chance to cut that off

4

to Rohit, FOUR, first bit of sloppy work in the field today. Short and outside off, Rohit slashes the cut straight to backward point, where Gunathilaka misfields and allows the ball to reach the fence. Sri Lanka have been good in the field so far

4

to Rohit, FOUR, the attempted yorker gone wrong. Friendly low full toss around off, Rohit moves forward and drives it past the driving cover fielder, the focus was on placing the ball rather than hitting it hard

4

to Shreyas Iyer, FOUR, Iyer needed that. He was starting to get frustrated. Couple of good shots straight to the fielders and some fancy shots not connecting. This boundary should help him calm down. Watches the leg-break closely, opens the bat face and runs it down to the third man fence

4

to Shreyas Iyer, FOUR, not quite off the middle, but he won't mind the final result. Dances down and gets a bit too close to the delivery, whipped with plenty of bottom hand past mid-wicket. Got enough to pocket a boundary

OT

to Shreyas Iyer, 1 run, maiden fifty for Iyer. The whole team are on their feet to appreciate the knock. He also gets a pat on the back from his skipper. Soaks in the applause and raises his bat. Waits back in the crease for the offie and nudges it wide of mid-wicket

6

to Shreyas Iyer, SIX, short and wide outside off, Iyer had made some room, reaches out to slash the upper cut over backward point. The bottom hand comes off the bat handle and still the ball lands on the ad cushions at deep backward point

4

to Shreyas Iyer, FOUR, Thisara leaking plenty. Not getting his radar right. Another full toss and this time Iyer does not miss out, just picks it over the mid-wicket fielder and pockets the gift

OT

to Rohit, 1 run, hundred for Rohit. A captain's innings from him. Weathered the early spell from the pacers, took his time before he started to get going. He was happy to play second fiddle to Dhawan and now to Iyer. Raises his bat and acknowledges the applause. The missus is also happy. 16th ODI hundred for him and he gets there with a cut to sweeper cover

6

to Shreyas Iyer, SIX, mighty hit! This lad can strike them cleanly. Runs down the wicket and gets close to the pitch of the flighted delivery and smashes the loft straight down the ground, went miles into the stands. In fact, they have called for a replacement

4

to Rohit, FOUR, gets across to this full toss and helps with a lap past short fine leg. And all this just when the commentators on air were discussing how he only sticks to conventional shots

4

to Shreyas Iyer, FOUR, full toss and Shreyas Iyer whips it over mid-wicket. Did well with the placement. Long-on cannot get around in time

4

to Shreyas Iyer, FOUR, back of a length delivery and Shreyas Iyer exposes all his stumps. Cuts to the left of sweeper cover who dives but is not good enough to stop it

OT

to Shreyas Iyer, 1 run, now moves across to this length ball and turns through mid-wicket for a single

6

to Rohit, SIX, this is big. Rohit got across and to his delight got a full toss. All he needed to do was time the swing, which he did, clearing the long-on fence with ease

6

to Rohit, SIX, when this man starts hitting, no ground is big enough and cliches seem the only option to describe shots. Full toss and on the stumps. Rohit moves across and whips it over the deep square leg fence. Goes deep into the stands

6

to Rohit, SIX, read the previous ball's description. The only thing different was that Rohit had to adjust a bit to balance this one. But did well to put enough willow on it

6

to Rohit, SIX, he is going bonkers. Taking to cleaners like backyard cricket. Short ball and it's slow - that's criminal. Rohit waits and then pulls over the deep mid-wicket fence

4

to Shreyas Iyer, FOUR, this is smart. A full toss and most batsmen will be tempted to swing at it, especially during slog overs. But Shreyas Iyer had field awareness, he let it come to him and ran down to the third man fence. Fielder was pretty square in that region

6

to Rohit, SIX, how do you define that? Gets across and low to this full toss and laps over the short fine leg fence. Gets enough on it to clear the fence. He is only dealing in sixes now

6

to Rohit, SIX, aliens watch out. We are sending UFOs in orbit today. Full toss and Rohit swings at it. Long-on is a mere spectator. Wait, he has got to his 150 as well. Did he not get his century a little while ago?

6

to Rohit, SIX, he slices it. Does not come off well but then Rohit has hit it. That's going to clear the fence, and it does. Well over deep backward point

W

to Shreyas Iyer, out Caught by (sub)de Silva!! Shreyas Iyer deserved a hundred today but holes out to deep mid-wicket. Should not feel disheartened, will get his chances. Played a good hand today. Slower short ball and he went for the pull, did not time it well and carried to the deep mid-wicket fielder. And chants are familiar. Guess who has walked out! Shreyas Iyer c (sub)de Silva b 88(70) [4s-9 6s-2]

4

to Rohit, FOUR, he has got eyes of a hawk. Was moving across to this fuller ball and then adjusted to help it with a lap through backward square leg. A couple of bounces and then over the fence

4

to Rohit, FOUR, slower ball. Rohit has premeditated by giving himself some room. Goes through with the shot and lofts over mid-off. The fielder cannot chase it down

6

to Rohit, SIX, oh dear! Shortish ball and he is beaten by the lack of pace for a moment. Goes for the pull anyway and then clears the deep mid-wicket fence

6

to Dhoni, SIX, even this man packs a punch. Did I just write that? Full toss. Dhoni clubs it over the deep mid-wicket fence

W

to Dhoni, out Lbw!! Slower ball and cannot say Dhoni did not read it. Went for a mighty heave but did not connect. Was hit on the back leg and the umpire did not have a doubt in mind. India have a review left but Dhoni wants to watch it all unfold from the stands. Walks off with a big grin on his face. Dhoni lbw b 7(5) [6s-1]

4

to Rohit, FOUR, fuller ball outside off. Gentle pace on it. Rohit slices the drive over point. No chance for the man in the deep. 182 now

4

to Hardik Pandya, FOUR, Hardik Pandya joins the party. Yorker outside off. Hardik Pandya gets his bat down on it and carves through backward point

6

to Rohit, SIX, fetch that in Chandigarh. Full ball around off. That's like serving him a platter. Rohit launches it over the long-off fence

6

to Rohit, SIX, full toss and it is out of here. Rohit times the whip. Picks it up over the deep mid-wicket fence. Three runs away now

OT

to Rohit, 2 runs, stand up and applaud wherever you are. He has got his third double ton. He is a modern great. Gets a length ball and nudges through mid-wicket. Mrs Sharma in the stands is in tears. What an innings. He was on 101 at the end of 40th over and right now he is over 200. Have you seen something as special. Also he is the second skipper after Sehwag to get a double ton in ODI

6

to Rohit, SIX, that's normal. Slower length ball and Rohit pulls over the deep square leg fence

W

to Hardik Pandya, out Caught by Thirimanne!! Hardik Pandya swings at it but is devoid of any timing. Holes out to long-on. India end up with 392 for 4 on the board. Hardik Pandya c Thirimanne b 8(5) [4s-1]
