D

to Dickwella, 2 runs, dropped! KL Rahul spills one. Looked like he had it covered for most parts. Short of length and Dickwella is cramped for room, still goes for the pull and splices it towards square leg, Rahul runs back with his eyes on the ball, gets both hands but can't cling on

6

to Dickwella, SIX, errs in line and pays the price. The length is similar to the previous delivery - short but the line is on leg-stump, Dickwella gets inside the line and helps it along the way with a pull over fine leg

4

to Dickwella, FOUR, runs down the wicket while backing away, saw him coming and shortened the length on the slower delivery, Dickwella delayed his shot for a second and managed to lift it over extra cover

4

to Dickwella, FOUR, poor length from . Short and plenty of space outside off, Dickwella is already standing outside leg, reaches out and cuts it over the infield on the off-side, both feet in the air as he made contact, almost went the distance

OT

to Dickwella, 1 run, this is what was trying to do a couple of balls ago, Dickwella walked away to the leg-side and darts the yorker, jammed to the right of mid-wicket and DK is onto it in a flash, races across and flings a throw at the bowler's end - all in one move but Dickwella had made it in

W

to Dickwella, out Caught by Hardik Pandya!! There's the first wicket. It was only a matter of time. With all the shots Dickwella was playing this was bound to happen. The slower back of a length delivery and Dickwella moves across before getting in line, whips it high and towards deep square leg, Pandya seemed to have lost it for a second, but hangs on comfortably. Dickwella c Hardik Pandya b 25(19) [4s-2 6s-1]

4

to Tharanga, FOUR, the slower delivery sat up nicely for Tharanga to have a go, stands tall and flat-bats it right over the bowler, couple of bounces and into the fence. First four for Tharanga

4

Yadav to Tharanga, FOUR, lovely use of the feet! Waited for to release the ball and shimmied down to get close to the ball, then lofted it handsomely inside out over wide mid-off

6

Yadav to Kusal Perera, SIX, now Perera uses his feet to good effect. put under the sword immediately. Dances down the wicket to the flighted delivery and lofts it cleanly over long-off

6

Yadav to Kusal Perera, SIX, consecutive sixes and Perera is toying with . Once more he races down and even though he isn't to the pitch, the bottom hand helps him to whip it over long-on. That made a good sound as Perera connected with the shot

6

Yadav to Kusal Perera, SIX, high and over the rope. Not timed well, but the short boundaries aiding Perera. He sashays down the wicket and isn't to the pitch of ball, extends his arms and goes through with the loft over wide long-on

4

Pandya to Tharanga, FOUR, top-edge and four. Cramped Tharanga for room with a short of length delivery, the southpaw took on the delivery and miscued it to fine leg. Kuldeep was a lot squarer and the ball beat him comfortably to the fence

6

to Tharanga, SIX, in an attempt to push it through, drops it short, Tharanga picks the length up early, transfers his weight back and tonks the pull over wide long-on. Effortless!

6

to Tharanga, SIX, the extra ball costs six runs. Dhoni immediately has a word with him. Tosses it up on the stumps, Tharanga clears his front leg to get a free swing of the arms and he deposits it over deep mid-wicket

6

Pandya to Kusal Perera, SIX, whipped into the stands. Pandya is furious with himself for offering a length ball. As soon as he misses his mark, Perera latches onto it and swings it over square leg

6

to Kusal Perera, SIX, couldn't have done much more. This is a shot which is all down to Perera's brilliance. He's beaten in flight, nowhere near the pitch as he dances down, but still smokes this over long-on

4

to Kusal Perera, FOUR, short and wide, and it's crunched through the covers. Holy smokes did this go quickly. It's fifty for Perera as well

4

Yadav to Kusal Perera, FOUR, now he changes his stance and belts the reverse-sweep over backward point

6

Yadav to Kusal Perera, SIX, puts the skipping shoes on and wallop! Flat six over deep mid-wicket. Serious hitting this from Perera. He's tearing into India's wrist-spinners

4

Yadav to Kusal Perera, FOUR, takes it on the full and hammers it straight back over 's head. Still far off, but this is impressive from Perera

W

to Tharanga, out Caught&Bowled!! Some relief for , although it's the man at the other end which he would really prefer. Darted in at the stumps at around 90kph, and it comes straight off Tharanga's leading edge. He lost his shape there, looking to swipe it over mid-wicket. It skies up, calls for it, and he takes it. Tharanga c and b 47(29) [4s-3 6s-2]

4

to Kusal Perera, FOUR, Karthik overruns this at long-off. The ball was skewed off the toe-end so it was always going to have some back-spin on it, and it accounts for Karthik

6

to Kusal Perera, SIX, clean. That's all what's needed on this ground - a clean connection. Leans across outside off and whacks it away over wide long-on

W

Yadav to Perera, out Caught by Hardik Pandya!! Very cleverly bowled from , tossing this one very wide of off and turning it further away. In fact, it would have been a wide had Perera left it. But he goes chasing after it and skews it off the toe-end straight back down the ground. Pandya covers good ground from long-on and takes it easily. Perera c Hardik Pandya b Yadav 0(1)

W

Yadav to Kusal Perera, out Caught by Manish Pandey!! So that's the end of that. Any hopes which Sri Lanka might have left should disappear with this dismissal. For once, Perera fails to get hold of one and holes out at long-off. Two in two for . Rohit's faith in his wrist-spinners pays off. Kusal Perera c Manish Pandey b Yadav 77(37) [4s-4 6s-7]

4

Yadav to Samarawickrama, FOUR, not too bad for his first ball. Slaps it through the covers for four

W

Yadav to Gunaratne, out Stumped!! Dhoni is fairly confident of a stumping here, and most times that's an indication of what's to come. Isn't any different this time either. Gunaratne going for a hard sweep off a yorker length delivery, missing it, and then dragging his back leg out. Once you give Dhoni an opening, his rapid hands tear it into a giant hole and its electricity lights up the bails. Back foot on the line when the bails are taken off. Third umpire needn't see any more. Gunaratne st Dhoni b Yadav 0(1)

W

to de Silva, out Bowled!! Drags it back on off the under-edge. Sri Lanka now going down in a heap. Went for a big reverse-sweep here de Silva, but he's no expert at it. de Silva b 1(2)

W

to Samarawickrama, wide, out Stumped!! And another one. That dismissal of Perera has just blown the balloon. It's the delivery which uses so often in T20 cricket, tossing it very wide of off. Samarawickrama charges out, tries to reach out to it, but it turns away past the edge. Dhoni does the rest. actually suggests going for a review for an outside edge. That doesn't happen. Samarawickrama st Dhoni b 5(2) [4s-1]

4

to Dananjaya, FOUR, crashed away through extra-cover. Touch short from and it's enough when it's so wide

W

to Dananjaya, out Caught by Manish Pandey!! Third wicket in the over for . He's now getting his dues after being taken apart earlier. Turns the googly across off, and Dananjaya slices it straight up off the outside half. Simple catch for Pandya at long-on. Dananjaya c Manish Pandey b 5(3) [4s-1]

W

Pandya to Chameera, out Bowled!! It's all over. Mathews won't be coming out to bat after his injury. It's a slower ball from Pandya, gets it onto the stumps this time, and that's exactly what was needed with these Sri Lankan tailenders not really setting the stage on fire with their batting ability. Goes right through Chameera and takes out leg-stump. Chameera b Pandya 3(5)

4

to Rohit, FOUR, aerial but it's flown away! Too short and plenty of width, Rohit doesn't bother to keep the cut down and the slice flies over backward point. Easy pickings!

4

to Rohit, FOUR, this is very poor from ! A half-tracker and at his leisurely pace, it's going to disappear every single time. Rohit is on the front foot as he hammers this pull stroke over wide mid-on. Goes to the fence on a few bounces

4

to Rahul, FOUR, high quality shot! can just walk back to the start of his bowling mark and bowl again. This was a decent ball mind you, on a length around off but Rahul times the pants off this straight drive. Mid-off is a mere spectator as it races away straight down the ground

D

to Rahul, no run, dropped! It was hit hard but that's no excuse at this level. Samarawickrama the culprit. Short and quite wide, Rahul slaps the cut fiercely but doesn't keep it down. Fortunately for him, it's shelled at backward point. How costly will this be?

6

to Rahul, SIX, blimey! How did he play that? Lost of words, really. Rahul is on the walk here but it's on a good length from . Decides to go through with stroke and connects beautifully. Gee, that went way up into the stands at wide long-off. Incredible, just incredible!

6

to Rohit, SIX, Rohit joins in the fun! Fractionally short from and Rohit is on the front foot as he nonchalantly pulls this over mid-wicket. Clean connection and it clears the ropes with ease. Already, signs of a belter of a pitch

4

to Rahul, FOUR, a slower ball too many, perhaps? Rahul is expecting the lack of pace and shuffles across after seeing the line on leg stump. Poor line with fine leg up in the circle and he gets it away very fine. Deft touch

6

to Rahul, SIX, power on display this time from Rahul! He's carrying on from where he left off in Cuttack. Too full and in the zone, he lofts it through the line and not only does he clear mid-on, but also the ropes

4

to Rohit, FOUR, excellent batting! Rohit decides to take on straightaway. Uses his feet to take this on the full and although the line wasn't too straight, he managed to whip it away with ease. Through mid-wicket

4

to Rohit, FOUR, rubbish stuff! They are just not bowling to their fields. Fine leg is up and what does do? Float one up fuller outside leg, Rohit obliges with a sweep that beats the man at short fine leg

6

to Rohit, SIX, didn't seem like he middled it but who cares, it's a biggie! Floated up around off, Rohit probably wanted to go over mid-on and didn't connect as well as he would have liked. Still manages to clear long-off. The Indians are off to a flier here

4

to Rohit, FOUR, super shot! Full and wide outside off, Rohit places the drive square through the off-side. The man in the deep is well in front of square and once he beat the infield, it was always a boundary

4

to Rahul, FOUR, almost went all the way! This was nothing more than a mere extension of a drive from Rahul but look at the timing on it! One bounce into the ropes at deep extra cover. erred on the fuller side and Rahul took it on the full with a step down the track

4

Silva to Rohit, FOUR, doesn't matter who is coming onto bowl. These two are just caning them. Floated up around middle and off, Rohit makes room and lofts it insi out over extra cover. Excellent batting!

4

Silva to Rohit, FOUR, sloppy at backward point! When it's not going your way, things go haywire. Flatter and outsi off, Rohit forced the cut towards backward point and this should have been stopped. However, the fielr is late to sli and lets it through. Chaturanga won't be happy at all

6

Silva to Rahul, SIX, that's into the top tier! Rahul is sending them ep into the stands today. Uses his feet nicely to get to the pitch of the ball and lifts it straight over the bowler's head. 101 meters! Whoa, that's a serious strike!

6

to Rohit, SIX, they are competing on who's going to hit the bigger sixes. Rohit this time as he lays into this slower ball that he picked up early. Slog sweeps it over deep mid-wicket for a maximum. Brings up his fifty!

6

to Rohit, SIX, ohhh, boyy! That's hugeeeeeee! Into the third tier at deep mid-wicket. Another slower ball and Rohit knows what's coming. Gets down on one knee and slog sweeps this into orbit. No mercy at all

4

to Rohit, FOUR, runs continue to bleed. Idea was right from , tries the wide yorker but Rohit is in such good touch that reaches it. Steers with an open bat face to beat short third man comfortably. This is getting way too easy

4

to Rohit, FOUR, finds the gap once more! Look at the timing on this one. Fuller and outside off, Rohit reaches out to the pitch of it and drills the drive. Splits deep extra cover and long-off with such precision. He is on the rampage here, is Rohit Sharma

4

to Rohit, FOUR, spoils all the good work done in the first five balls with a poor ball. Sprays on the pads and it's easy for Rohit with fine leg in the ring. Helps it on its way wide of that fielder there

6

to Rohit, SIX, a mistimed shot for six! Back of the hand slower delivery, Rohit walks down the track and is ealry into his pull shot. Hits high on the bat and just manages to go past the fielder. The long-on fielder should have been near the rope. Sameera, the fielder, got a hand on it, but all he could do was parry it over the boundary rope

6

to Rohit, SIX, another massive hit! Fullish ball that ends up right in Rohit's slot. HITMAN gets underneath it and thumps it over long-on

6

to Rohit, SIX, and another one! Moves to 91. This time over the off-side. Full and wide outside off allowing Rohit to free his arms. Lofts the slice and sends it into the point fence

6

to Rohit, SIX, 26 off the over! Rohit is in the mood here at Indore. Thisara bowls another wide ball outside off and that's been deposited into the cover fence. Stays in his crease does Rohit and allows his arms to do the rest. Got underneath it and walloped it all the way. Moves to 97!

4

to Rohit, FOUR, take a bow Rohit Sharma! He equals the fastest T20I century with David Miller. The crowd go up in unsion to applaud this wonderful knock from the skipper. Length ball outside off, Rohit laces it through the cover region. In the gap and the quick outfield does the rest. Second hundred in T20Is for Rohit

6

to Rohit, SIX, 150 up for India! This is becoming a bit boring. Too many sixes. Short of a length ball without any venom, Rohit won't leave you. Pulls it off the front foot and sends it deep into the deep mid-wicket fence

4

to Rohit, FOUR, that went like a bullet! Fullish and outside off, Rohit flashes his bat at it and does hard. Races away through point

6

to Rohit, SIX, six #10 for Rohit! A gift from the bowler and Rohit doesn't need second invitation. Full toss on the pads and Rohit, with a small back-lift, smites it over mid-wicket

W

to Rohit, out Caught by Dananjaya!! The carnage comes to an end. Rohit walks off to a standing ovation from a packed Indore crowd. The slower ball did him there. It was a shortish ball at 115kph outside off, Rohit picked the length and wanted to ramp it over short third man. He was a bit too early into the shot and ended up spooning to Dananjaya at short third man. Oh, my! Sri Lanka needed that. Didn't they? The 165-run stand has been broken. Rohit c Dananjaya b 118(43) [4s-12 6s-10]

4

to Dhoni, FOUR, first boundary for Dhoni. Floated delivery, but slightly too full. Dhoni drills it down the ground, beats the bowler and long-on can't cut it off

4

to Dhoni, FOUR, doesn't get it anywhere close to the middle of the bat, but the result is the same. Loopy leg-break outside off, Dhoni goes hard at it and loses his shape in the process. Gets it off the outside half of the bat and the ball flies over extra cover. Hits the practise pitch and goes into the fence in a flash

4

to Rahul, FOUR, back to back fifties for Lokesh Rahul! Gets to the milestone with a boundary. The ball fell inches short of the boundary rope. A normal-paced short of length delivery, Rahul walks down and chips it over the on-side in front of square. Didn't over-hit it and relied on timing

6

to Rahul, SIX, all too easy! Slower bouncer, Rahul expected it. Waits for the ball on the back foot and nails the pull over square leg. Into the second tier

4

to Rahul, FOUR, 19 from the over! Can't blame the bowler here. He didn't do much wrong here. Bowled a pacy full ball and Rahul was beaten for pace there. The latter brought his bat down a bit late and managed to get an inside edge. Evades the keeper by a long way and trickles away into the fine leg fence

OT

to Dhoni, leg byes, 1 run. Fourth slower ball of the over and Dhoni is hit on the pad. Thisara decides to review. Fair delivery. No bat - Ultra Edge confirms the same. Missing the stumps. NOT OUT! It was the back of the hand slower delivery and Dhoni was early to flick across the line. The impact was on leg and that was always sliding down. Height was an issue as well

6

to Dhoni, SIX, Dhoni goes downtown and man, that's been muscled. Flat leg-break outside off, lots of room for the batter to free his arms. Dhoni allows the ball to turn and bludgeons it over long-off

6

to Dhoni, SIX, it's high.. and just over the ropes. The quick leg-break on leg, doesn't spin much. Dhoni kneels on one knee and slog-sweeps it over deep mid-wicket. For a moment, the man in the deep thought he had a chance. Alas, he was turned into a spectator

6

to Rahul, SIX, 21 off the over! Akila has been punished today. Gives a bit of flight does the bowler, but slightly overpitches, Rahul stays clears his front leg and lofts it over long-on. Off the sweet spot

6

to Rahul, SIX, wow! This is unbelievable stuff from Rahul. It was a very full ball, almost a yorker, Rahul stays deep in his crease and deposits it straight over the bowler's head. Not a huge back-lift there. Lots of bottom hand power there

6

to Rahul, SIX, gorgeous! Hits it effortlessly and poses for the photographs does Rahul. Off-paced length ball outside off, Rahul expected that and waited for the ball to come to him. Throws his bat at it and superbly lofts it over extra cover. Just an extension of the cover drive. Off the middle of the bat and way she goes!

6

to Rahul, SIX, was that a chance? Looks like the fielder lost it. Yep, he saw the ball and didn't even try to catch it. Completely lost it. is rightly livid. That was a full toss on the pads and Rahul flicked it nonchalantly over square leg. Hit it flat and the fielder failed to capitalize

W

to Rahul, out Caught by Dickwella!! Rahul misses his ton by 11 runs. End of a top-class knock. It needed something spectacular to dismiss him and Dickwella provided the same. A full ball darted outside off, Rahul threw the kitchen sink at it and got a thick outside edge. Dickwella flew to his right and grabbed a one-handed catch. Rahul c Dickwella b 89(49) [4s-5 6s-8]

4

to Hardik Pandya, FOUR, Pandya is off and running. Very full ball and Pandya hammers the straight-drive. Once it went past the bowler, there was no one to stop that

6

to Hardik Pandya, SIX, one-handed six! How could he do that? A full toss outside off and Pandya went hard at it, the bottom hand came off, but he still managed to make excellent contact. Slices it over backward point and the ball has enough wings to go all the way

W

to Hardik Pandya, out Caught by Samarawickrama!! Hardik Pandya perishes trying to play another big shot. Pacy back of a length delivery wide of off, Pandya moved across to swipe it across the line. Gets a top-edge and the ball balloons up over extra cover. Sadeera, at the cover region, runs back and holds onto it. Hardik Pandya c Samarawickrama b 10(3) [4s-1 6s-1]

W

to Shreyas Iyer, out Lbw!! Shreyas Iyer is given out lbw and he reviews straightaway! Fair delivery. No bat. Ball tracking shows three reds. Shreyas has to go back. Another slower delivery from Thisara and Shreyas didn't pick it. He looks to hoick it across the line and gets beaten on the inside edge. Gets hit on the back knee and was trapped plumb in front. Shreyas Iyer lbw b 0(1)

W

to Dhoni, out Bowled!! Pin drop silence as Dhoni loses his off-pole. Thisara angles one in from wide of the crease and Dhoni stayed in his crease to slog it through the on-side. Fails to connect and hears the death rattle. He missed the line of the ball there. Dhoni b 28(21) [4s-2 6s-2]

4

to Karthik, FOUR, DK doesn't pick the slower ball, swings his bat hard and manages to get some bat on it. And that's more than enough as the ball runs away into the backward square leg fence. It came off the inside half of the bat
