    FOUR! Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Angelo Mathews. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs. The four wraps up victory as Mathews punches the ball well down the ground and there's no stopping that one. Victory for Sri Lanka on a day which they have completely dominated from start to finish, they held India to just 112 all out, albeit after they were 29-7 and finished the job rather comfortably with the bat after a shaky start. The bowlers ruled the innings and each and every one played their part, Lakmal was probably the standout performer though with four wickets at the top of the order. India couldn't deal with the seam and swing and were didn't bat terribly but were definetely poor. Sri Lanka finished the job with the bat, Tharanga played a lovely innings and Mathews and Dickwella finished the job for them in style. It stops a run of 12 straight ODI defeats for Sri Lanka and is a huge result to give them their confidence back going into the final two games. They will take that confidence with them in hope of securing a result out of this series. India broke a number of unwanted records today, including the lowest ever poweplay score in ODI cricket, a day they will want to forget swiftly. The absence of captain Kohli may have been a factor in their defeat.
