Commentary
  • 32.1 - FOUR! Akila Dananjaya to Dinesh Karthik. Off break half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep cover for 4 runs. There we go, an emphatic stroke to complete a comprehensive victory - India seal the series 2-1 and with it their eighth straight ODI series win. They are a juggernaut of a team and even after losing the first match, it was never really in doubt that they would turn things around.

    Shikhar Dhawan's sublime 12th ODI century has secured yet another series win for India at home. The left-handed opener clinically cruised to the landmark after sharing a huge partnership with Shreyas Iyer (65) in pursuit of an under par 215. The hosts didn't have it all their own way though, and might have had a few nerves when Sri Lanka got off to a flier first up through Upul Tharanga (95). Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav settled things down for the hosts with three wickets apiece as the visitors fell away badly in a lower order collapse. Attention will now turn to the shortest format as these sides battle it out in a three match T20I series.

  • 32.1 - Wide Akila Dananjaya to Dinesh Karthik. Leg spinner back of a length, to leg on the back foot, Left to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Dickwella.

  • 31.6 - Asela Gunaratne to Shikhar Dhawan. Half volley, to leg on the front foot driving, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Gunaratne.

  • 31.5 - FOUR! Asela Gunaratne to Shikhar Dhawan. Half volley, down leg side on the front foot sweeping, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs. Wacked to the rope, that's a century for Dhawan. He's made everything look so simple today, he's clearly in sublime form.

  • 31.4 - Asela Gunaratne to Shikhar Dhawan. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, to backward point for no runs, fielded by Pathirana.

  • 31.4 - Wide Asela Gunaratne to Shikhar Dhawan. Half volley, down leg side no foot movement sweeping, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Dickwella.

  • 31.3 - FOUR! Asela Gunaratne to Shikhar Dhawan. Half volley, to leg on the front foot flick, well timed in the air under control past fine leg for 4 runs. Poor delivery, a rare quick one from Gunaratne so Dhawan just needs to use the pace and pick the gap.

  • 31.2 - Asela Gunaratne to Dinesh Karthik. Off cutter back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Perera.

  • 31.1 - Asela Gunaratne to Dinesh Karthik. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to silly point for no runs, fielded by Dickwella.

  • 30.6 - Angelo Mathews to Dinesh Karthik. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Tharanga.

  • 30.5 - FOUR! Angelo Mathews to Dinesh Karthik. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs. Creamed through mid off, that was a high class shot but I'm not sure Dhawan enjoyed it too much at the non-striker's end.

  • 30.4 - Angelo Mathews to Shikhar Dhawan. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Gunaratne.

  • 30.3 - FOUR! Angelo Mathews to Shikhar Dhawan. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot glancing, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Tickled fine, that's easy pickings for Dhawan to move into the 90s.

  • 30.2 - Angelo Mathews to Dinesh Karthik. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, to deep backward point for 1 run, fielded by Tharanga.

  • 30.1 - Angelo Mathews to Dinesh Karthik. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to backward point for no runs, fielded by Gunathilaka.

  • 29.5 - Danushka Gunathilaka to Shikhar Dhawan. Off break half volley, middle stump on the front foot flick, to deep backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Lakmal.

  • 29.4 - FOUR! Danushka Gunathilaka to Shikhar Dhawan. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Oh yes, the century is definitely on for Dhawan now as he tucks into some tasty bowling.

  • 29.3 - Danushka Gunathilaka to Shikhar Dhawan. Off break back of a length, middle stump on the back foot pulling, to short fine leg for no runs, fielded by Fernando.

  • 29.2 - SIX! Danushka Gunathilaka to Shikhar Dhawan. Off break length ball, middle stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Wacked into the crowd with nonchalance, Dhawan might just have one eye on three figures here.

  • 29.1 - Danushka Gunathilaka to Shikhar Dhawan. Off break back of a length, middle stump on the back foot working, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Gunaratne.

  • 28.6 - Angelo Mathews to Shikhar Dhawan. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, bottom edge to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Perera.

  • 28.2 - Angelo Mathews to Shikhar Dhawan. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Gunaratne.

  • 28.1 - FOUR! Angelo Mathews to Shikhar Dhawan. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control past deep backward square leg for 4 runs. Agricultural but effective from Dhawan as he has a massive heave across the line.

  • 27.6 - Asela Gunaratne to Dinesh Karthik. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Gunaratne.

  • 27.5 - Asela Gunaratne to Dinesh Karthik. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump on the back foot Late Cut, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dickwella.

  • 27.2 - Asela Gunaratne to Dinesh Karthik. Off cutter length ball, off stump on the front foot working, to deep backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Pathirana.

  • 26.4 - FOUR! Thisara Perera to Shikhar Dhawan. Half volley, to leg on the front foot flick, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. That's in the slot, Dhawan whips it helicopter-MSD-style over mid wicket. He's having fun out there.

  • 26.3 - Thisara Perera to Dinesh Karthik. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to deep backward point for 1 run, fielded by Perera.

  • 26.2 - Thisara Perera to Dinesh Karthik. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dickwella.

  • 26.1 - Thisara Perera to Shikhar Dhawan. Back of a length, to leg on the back foot pulling, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Tharanga.

  • 25.3 - Asela Gunaratne to Shikhar Dhawan. Half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, to long off for 1 run, fielded by Perera. That's 4000 career ODI runs for Dhawan - he's the second fastest Indian to that mark behind usual skipper Virat Kohli.

  • 25.2 - APPEAL! Asela Gunaratne to Shikhar Dhawan. Off cutter full toss, down leg side on the front foot sweeping, hit pad back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Gunaratne, appeal made for L.B.W.

  • 25.1 - Asela Gunaratne to Shikhar Dhawan. Off cutter length ball, off stump on the front foot sweeping, to short fine leg for no runs, fielded by Lakmal.

  • 24.6 - APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. Thisara Perera to Dinesh Karthik. Length ball, off stump on the front foot flick, inside edge for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. The finger is raised but Karthik is asking for a review before it even reaches it's apex. It looked plumb to the naked eye but the batsman knew he got a little feather of an inside edge on it, so the decision is overturned.

  • 24.5 - Thisara Perera to Dinesh Karthik. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, to point for no runs, fielded by Gunathilaka.

  • 24.4 - Thisara Perera to Dinesh Karthik. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Perera.

  • 24.2 - FOUR! Thisara Perera to Dinesh Karthik. Length ball, off stump on the front foot flick, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Lovely stroke, all wrists and whippage from Karthik to open his boundary account.

  • 24.1 - Thisara Perera to Dinesh Karthik. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Fernando.

  • 23.6 - APPEAL! Sachith Pathirana to Dinesh Karthik. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to mid on for 1 run, direct hit by Perera, appeal made for Run Out.

  • 22.6 - Thisara Perera to Shikhar Dhawan. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot working, hit pad to backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Pathirana.

  • 22.5 - Thisara Perera to Dinesh Karthik. Back of a length, outside off stump down the track Steer, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Perera.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Thisara Perera to Shreyas Iyer. Back of a length, off stump backing away pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid on, by Lakmal. Something to cheer for Sri Lanka, a moment of relief as Iyer skews one to a fielder. He was looking to pull but was cramped for room, and looks absolutely gutted when the ball balloons into the hands of Lakmal.

  • 22.3 - Thisara Perera to Shikhar Dhawan. Length ball, middle stump down the track Slog, inside edge to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Perera.

  • 22.2 - Thisara Perera to Shikhar Dhawan. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot working, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Pathirana.

  • 21.6 - Asela Gunaratne to Shikhar Dhawan. Off cutter back of a length, off stump on the back foot pushing, to deep backward point for 1 run, fielded by Tharanga.

  • 21.5 - FOUR! Asela Gunaratne to Shikhar Dhawan. Off cutter back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot cutting, well timed past third man for 4 runs. Dhawan wanted to sweep that initially and looked like he was in a tangle, but he still has time to improvise and slash a cut behind point. This is all far too easy for India, Sri Lanka are going out with a wimper.

  • 21.4 - Asela Gunaratne to Shikhar Dhawan. Off cutter yorker, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, missed past third man for 4 runs, mis-fielded by Dickwella.

  • 21.3 - Asela Gunaratne to Shikhar Dhawan. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to slips for no runs, fielded by Mathews.

  • 21.1 - Wide Asela Gunaratne to Shreyas Iyer. Off cutter length ball, down leg side no foot movement sweeping, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Dickwella.

  • 20.4 - Thisara Perera to Shikhar Dhawan. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot Slog, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dickwella.

  • 20.2 - Thisara Perera to Shreyas Iyer. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Steer, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Perera.

  • 20.1 - Thisara Perera to Shikhar Dhawan. Back of a length, to leg down the track driving, to silly point for 1 run.

  • 19.6 - FOUR! Akila Dananjaya to Shreyas Iyer. Carrom ball half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Anything tossed up and these two batsmen are going hard at it now. Iyer was wanting to hit this into the crowd but has to settle for a four instead.

  • 19.5 - Akila Dananjaya to Shreyas Iyer. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, to backward point for no runs, fielded by Fernando.

  • 19.4 - Akila Dananjaya to Shikhar Dhawan. Off break length ball, middle stump down the track driving, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Samarawickrama.

  • 19.3 - SIX! Akila Dananjaya to Shikhar Dhawan. Leg spinner half volley, outside off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Smashed, Dhawan goes to a half century in supreme style with probably the biggest six of the night. He picks the leggie, gets down low and swats with the spin over mid wicket.

  • 19.2 - Akila Dananjaya to Shikhar Dhawan. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Perera.

  • 19.1 - Akila Dananjaya to Shikhar Dhawan. Off break length ball, middle stump on the front foot working, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Gunaratne.

  • 18.6 - Thisara Perera to Shikhar Dhawan. Back of a length, middle stump on the back foot Steer, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Samarawickrama.

  • 18.4 - FOUR! Thisara Perera to Shikhar Dhawan. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Dispatched with aplomb, Dhawan has thumped that with venom. He has been playing second fiddle to Iyer at the other end, but now decides it's his time to join the fun.

  • 18.3 - Thisara Perera to Shreyas Iyer. Back of a length, outside off stump moves in front working, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Gunaratne.

  • 18.2 - Thisara Perera to Shreyas Iyer. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to silly point for no runs, fielded by Pathirana.

  • 18.1 - Thisara Perera to Shikhar Dhawan. Short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, well timed to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Tharanga.

  • 17.6 - Akila Dananjaya to Shreyas Iyer. Leg spinner length ball, off stump on the back foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Perera.

    Drinks time with India in cruise control, it will take something special from here to prevent them taking the series 2-1 at a canter.

  • 17.5 - Akila Dananjaya to Shreyas Iyer. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Gunaratne.

  • 16.3 - Nuwan Pradeep to Shikhar Dhawan. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Gunathilaka.

  • 16.2 - Nuwan Pradeep to Shreyas Iyer. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, well timed to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Tharanga.

  • 16.1 - Nuwan Pradeep to Shikhar Dhawan. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Gunaratne.

  • 15.6 - Sachith Pathirana to Shreyas Iyer. Stock length ball, middle stump on the front foot working, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Gunathilaka.

  • 15.4 - FOUR! Sachith Pathirana to Shreyas Iyer. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Late Cut, well timed past third man for 4 runs. Earlier in the over there was brute force, now there is delicate deftness. This young man has it all.

  • 15.3 - Sachith Pathirana to Shikhar Dhawan. Stock length ball, down leg side on the front foot working, to deep backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Lakmal.

  • 15.2 - Sachith Pathirana to Shreyas Iyer. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Gunaratne. That's fifty, his second in succession - I'm sure he's loving every second out there.

  • 15.1 - SIX! Sachith Pathirana to Shreyas Iyer. Stock length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Hammered over mid wicket, the ball disappears into the night sky with no signs of ever coming back. Iyer is showing the world he has talent by the bucket-load.

  • 14.6 - Nuwan Pradeep to Shreyas Iyer. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Late Cut, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Perera.

  • 14.5 - Nuwan Pradeep to Shreyas Iyer. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Pathirana.

  • 14.4 - Nuwan Pradeep to Shreyas Iyer. Length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Fernando.

  • 14.3 - FOUR! Nuwan Pradeep to Shreyas Iyer. Short, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed in the air under control past third man for 4 runs. Ramped down to third man, the fielder is kept interested all the way and puts in a full length dive, but still can't lay a hand on it. Would've been the catch of the century.

  • 14.2 - Nuwan Pradeep to Shreyas Iyer. Length ball, off stump on the back foot pushing, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Fernando.

  • 14.1 - Nuwan Pradeep to Shreyas Iyer. Length ball, outside off stump no foot movement pushing, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dickwella.

  • 13.5 - FOUR! Sachith Pathirana to Shreyas Iyer. Stock length ball, middle stump down the track flick, inside edge past fine leg for 4 runs. That's nothing more than a thick inside edge but he swings hard so the ball zips away quickly. Iyer showing impressive fearlessness for just his third match.

  • 13.4 - Sachith Pathirana to Shikhar Dhawan. Stock ball half volley, down leg side on the front foot sweeping, well timed to fine leg for 1 run.

  • 13.3 - Sachith Pathirana to Shreyas Iyer. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, inside edge to square leg for 1 run, shy attempt by Dickwella.

  • 11.6 - APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Sachith Pathirana to Shreyas Iyer. Stock length ball, off stump on the front foot working, hit pad for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Huge appeal, Sri Lanka like the look of this so ask to review. There's no spin on offer though so the ball was heading with the angle to miss the leg stump.

  • 11.1 - FOUR! Sachith Pathirana to Shreyas Iyer. Stock length ball, outside off stump backing away cutting, top edge past third man for 4 runs, dropped catch by Mathews. Oh dear, more woe in the field for the tourists. Iyer looks to make room to cut but can only get a top edge which flies between the hands of Mathews at slip. It flew quickly but he really should've done better.

  • 10.6 - Angelo Mathews to Shreyas Iyer. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Tharanga.

  • 10.5 - FOUR! Angelo Mathews to Shreyas Iyer. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Creamed through the covers, textbook driving from Iyer as this partnership surges past 50.

  • 10.3 - Angelo Mathews to Shreyas Iyer. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, to mid on for no runs, fielded by Pathirana.

  • 10.2 - FOUR! Angelo Mathews to Shreyas Iyer. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. A tame effort in the deep by the sub, that certainly won't help Sri Lanka's cause.

  • 9.4 - FOUR! Akila Dananjaya to Shreyas Iyer. Leg spinner half volley, down leg side on the front foot sweeping, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Another loose delivery that demands to be put away, Akila perhaps sacrificing his accuracy in search of another magical variation. Iyer just paddles the ball around the corner.

  • 9.3 - Akila Dananjaya to Shikhar Dhawan. Off break length ball, off stump down the track driving, well timed to long off for 1 run, fielded by Gunathilaka.

  • 9.2 - FOUR! Akila Dananjaya to Shikhar Dhawan. Off break short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. That's a gift, Dhawan has all the time in the world to rock back and dismiss the ball from his sight.

  • 8.6 - FOUR! Suranga Lakmal to Shikhar Dhawan. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. The previous boundary was all about the footwork but this time it's served up in the slot so Dhawan can stand and deliver a crunching drive that whistles to the fence.

  • 8.5 - Suranga Lakmal to Shikhar Dhawan. Full toss, outside off stump on the front foot flick, hit pad to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dickwella.

  • 8.4 - FOUR! Suranga Lakmal to Shikhar Dhawan. Length ball, middle stump down the track driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Crashed through the covers, Dhawan skips down the pitch to get some momentum into the stroke.

  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Akila Dananjaya to Rohit Sharma. Googly length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, missed. What a beauty, Rohit is beaten all ends up by the young spinner. For a man in such prime form, he has completely misread this to have his middle peg knocked back. Akila produces the perfect googly to sneak between bat and pad and give the tourists a much needed early scalp.

  • 3.2 - SIX! Akila Dananjaya to Rohit Sharma. Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Asela Gunaratne. Length ball, outside off stump no foot movement Steer, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Dhoni. Safely pouched by Dhoni, Gunaratne wasn't really sure how to play things with the rabbit number eleven at the other end. In the end he has a wafty flirt and nicks one through. From a position of relative dominance, Sri Lanka have meekly subsided to a paltry 215 all out.

    With Upul Tharanga smashing the ball to all parts of the ground earlier on, the sky really seemed the limit for Sri Lanka after 20 overs. His rapid century stand with Sadeera Samarawickrama had the hosts in some bother, before a familiar story emerged and the visitors collapsed in a heap. The legspinning-duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal combined to take six wickets between them and rip through the batting order. Once the procession started it had an air of inevitability about it, meaning the hosts require just 216 to seal the series. Sri Lanka will have to produce some magic to prevent that.

  • wicket: OUT! L.B.W. Hardik Pandya to Suranga Lakmal. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump no foot movement defending, hit pad. That is as plumb as plumb can be, Lakmal just accepts the decision and walks off with no thoughts of a review. Pandya gets one to hit the seam, jag back and have Lakmal stone dead in front. What a collapse this has been.

  • 39.6 - Kuldeep Yadav to Suranga Lakmal. Googly short, middle stump on the back foot pulling, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Karthik.

  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Kuldeep Yadav to Akila Dananjaya. Chinaman yorker, middle stump on the front foot sweeping, missed. Bowled him round the legs, Kuldeep has a big cheeky smile on his face because he was planning for exactly that dismissal. Akila shaped to sweep very early so the left-arm leggie fired in the yorker, scooting underneath the blade and into the base of the stumps. It all rests on Gunaratne's shoulders for the tourists now.

Another one goes, Pandya into the wickets column now as Pathirana is the latest to fall in a soft way. It's an ugly hoik from the left-hander, certainly not what the visitors need in this situation, and Chahal makes the catch over his shoulder look much more simple than it is.

  • wicket: OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Yuzvendra Chahal to Thisara Perera. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, hit pad. Sri Lanka really fading away badly now, they are caught in a spin as the leggies run riot. Thisara should know better than shaping to cut when the ball can turn back into him so far, but he does so anyway and is hit on the back pad. He reviews more through hope and desperation than anything else, and it can't save him. India on the charge.

Cleans him up with a beauty, Chahal has enjoyed that one and you can't blame him. He goes slightly wider on the crease, fires this into leg stump and gets massive turn to beat the edge and crash into timber. A great time for the hosts to strike and it's the key man Mathews.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Kuldeep Yadav to Niroshan Dickwella. Chinaman length ball, off stump no foot movement Steer, outside edge to slips, by Iyer. Guided into the hands of slip, two in the over for Kuldeep as the crowd roars into life. This is a pretty tame shot, it just looked like he was giving catching practice to Iyer who accepted the chance with glee. Dickwella was attempting a repeat of the previous stroke but the ball was flatter, straighter and fuller so therefore frought with danger.

Tharanga lazily drove at the ball which turned past his outside edge and Dhoni casually removed the bails. It seemed as though Tharanga wasn't too concerned but the replays show he is marginally out of his crease, so a huge wicket for the hosts as they remove the dangerous opener.

Taken in the deep, Chahal celebrates a wicket India desperately needed.

That was an impressive cameo but isn't the sort of innings that will win matches, especially against India on a belting track. Mathews strides out to the middle, full of confidence after a century in the previous match.
