Looks like Sri Lanka are giving this mammoth target a real go!
Perera and Tharanga have put together a wonderful partnership as they have started smashing the Indian bowlers to all parts of the ground.
Heading into the break, India must surely have felt that they had put more than enough on the board. Riding on Rohit Sharma’s record breaking century and Rahul’s terrific 89, India posted a huge 260 in their allotted twenty overs.
After getting the dangerous Dickwella out early on, India must have felt that they had the match in the bag.
But Kusal’s counter attacking innings still gave Sri Lanka hope, as the left hander smashed every bowler to all parts of the ground.
Of all the bowlers, Hardik was relatively economical as he bowled a good line and length on this deadpan of a pitch.
Hardik got extremely angry at one point, when he cursed the batsman for hitting him for a six off the last bowler in the over.
