  • 44.3

    Wide Vishwa Fernando to MS Dhoni. Length ball, middle stump on the back foot pulling, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Dickwella.

    A tame end to the game but that sums up Sri Lanka's bowling display in the second half of the innings. They had India firmly on the ropes with Dananjaya picking up six wickets, including three in an over, but they couldn't break the eighth wicket partnership between Dhoni and Kumar. The pair broke multiple records and they now hold the highest eighth wicket partnership for India in ODIs with Kumar also bringing up his maiden half-century. Join us for the next game at the same venue to see if Sri Lanka can finally break through and get a vital win against India.
