    SL 36/8 in 14 overs

    Shami continues. Shami to Mathews, OUT! Clean bowled! There is no better sight in cricket than watching Shami’s seam presentation.

What a lovely review by Rahul to send Chameera back.

  • November 02, 2023 19:52

    There is a halt in the live action as Sachin Tendulkar is in the middle of the ground for the UNICEF event.

A third golden duck of the innings! Hemantha plays the drive but Shami’s seam gets the better of him to get an outside edge straight to KL Rahul. Two in two for Shami and he is on the hat trick.

    SL 12/4 in 8 overs

    Siraj bowls a quick bouncer that goes over Asalanka before the two exchange a few words. Siraj is not in the mood to stop here as he continues to go near the batter and chirp around after beating Asalanka with outside off deliveries. Another maiden for Siraj, meanwhile.

  • November 02, 2023 19:24
    SL 12/4 in 7 overs

Siraj beats him on the first delivery as well but it hit on the thigh pads.

  • November 02, 2023 19:00
    SL 3/3 in 3 overs

    Bumrah continues. Bumrah to Kusal Mendis, a huge LBW appeal followed after the inswinger hit Mendis on the pads. Rohit went upstairs after the on-field decision went Mendis way.

  • November 02, 2023 18:48
    SL 3/2 in 2 overs

    Mohammed Siraj comes into the attack from the other end. Sri Lanka would keep Siraj in mind as the last time they faced him was in the Asia Cup 2023 finals! Dimuth Karunaratne on the strike. Siraj to Karunaratne, OUT! What a ball! Siraj also strikes the first ball! Full-length ball, shaped in for the left-hander and the lazy defence means India gets the second wicket in the second over. In comes Sadeera Samarawickrama at number four. Siraj to Samarawickrama, huge appeal for an outside edge and given! Samarawickrama reviews instantly and the drs showed the clear gap between bat and bowl. Samarawickrama survives. Siraj to Samarawickrama, OUT! The batter could not survive as he nicked it to Iyer at second slip. Charith Asalanka comes in at number five. A double-wicket maiden for Siraj!

  • November 02, 2023 18:41
    SL 2/1 in 1 over

    Bumrah to Nissanka, OUT! Golden duck for the in-form Nissanka who played the front foot defence on the wrong line and the ball ended up crashing onto the knee roll. He takes the review instantly but it looks out on the naked eye. DRS went India’s way with the umpire’s call favouring the men-in-blue. 0/1 after the first ball! Kusal Mendis comes in at number three. Bumrah bowls two inswingers down the leg to give TWO WIDE RUNS. Mendis gets beaten once, gets an outside edge once before he almost ended up giving his wicket but the ball went just above Bumrah. Five dots to end a fantastic first over.

  • November 02, 2023 18:38
    Live action resumes

    IND 68/1 in 11 overs

    Maheesh Theekshana with the ball now. Pitched up outside off and Kohli leans into this powerful drive and beats the deep extra-cover fielder for a boundary. Pushed down the ground next ball for a single. Three more singles to end the over.

  • November 02, 2023 14:52
    IND 60/1 in 10 overs

    Mathews again. Slower one to start the over and Kohli gets an inside edge that almost disturbs his stumps. A couple of singles to start the over. Beaten! Kohli pokes outside off but the ball moves away just a bit to beat Kohli. Just a single off the last three balls of the first PowerPlay and India will be happy with that start.

  • November 02, 2023 14:47
    IND 57/1 in 9 overs

    Rajitha continues. FOUR! Down leg-side and it goes off Gill’s hips for four leg-byes. That’s 50 up for India in 8.1 overs. FOUR! Majestic shot! Width outside off, short of a length and Gill gets on top of the bounce and sends this to the boundary. Sprayed on the pads again and flicked away for two more by Gill.

  • November 02, 2023 14:43
    IND 47/1 in 8 overs

    Here comes Angelo Mathews. Keeps it on a good length around off-stump and Gill defends on off-side. Three dot balls in a row. FOUR! Width on offer outside off and this is languidly cut behind point to the boundary. Angling in from around off and Gill takes a big stride forward to defend back to the bowler. Pushed to mid-on by Gill for a quick single.

  • November 02, 2023 14:41
    IND 42/1 in 7 overs

    Kasun Rajitha into the attack. Gill takes a single down the ground after a misfield at mid-off. FOUR! Delicately pushed to the long-off boundary as Rajitha. FOUR! Now full on the pads and flicked to the boundary behind.

  • November 02, 2023 14:34
    IND 33/1 in 6 overs

    Chameera again. DROPPED! Kohli gets a leading edge again, Chameera gets a hand to it by extending his left arm, but cannot hold on to it. Kohli is beaten next ball with an in-ducker. FOUR! This is driven in the air and safe from the cover fielder and it runs away to the boundary. FOUR! Exquisitely punched by Kohli to the long-on boundary after shuffling slightly across his stumps.

  • November 02, 2023 14:23
    IND 25/1 in 5 overs

    Madushanka again. Gill feels for the ball angling away outside off and fails to connect. FOUR! Short and Gill pulls this for a boundary and is off the mark after nine balls. FOUR! This is trademark Gill. Punched delicately, more like a jab, between point and backward point. Yorker next up and defended to mid-off by Gill. Length just outside leg-stump and another wide ball called. Dropped! Tough chance at point for Asalanka, who cannot hang on to the catch after Gill drives aerially. The ball stops on Kohli a bit as he looks to flick this full delivery through mid-on.

  • November 02, 2023 14:20
    IND 14/1 in 4 overs

    Chameera will continue. Kohli gets a leading edge but it falls short of the bowler. Drifted on the pads now and Kohli flicks this only as far as the midwicket fielder inside the circle. Sharp inward movement and Kohli is beaten all ends up. He got a thick inside edge and the ball went off the thigh pad and the ball fell short of the keeper. Kohli inside edges another one on his pads and has no clue about where the ball went. Leaves this one outside off. Another maiden for Chameera.

  • November 02, 2023 14:14
    IND 14/1 in 3 overs

    Madushanka continues. FOUR! Too full on leg-stump again and Kohli flicks this through square-leg for a boundary. This is going down leg-side and wide signalled. Good bouncer and Kohli yanks his head out of the way. Fullish again on leg-stump and Kohli whips this to deep fine for one. Gill defends this back to the bowler with a stride forward and is yet to get off the mark after facing seven deliveries.

  • November 02, 2023 14:09
    IND 8/1 in 2 overs

    Dushmantha Chameera from the other end. Gill punches this length ball outside off solidly to point. This is defended to mid-off off the front foot. Blocked to cover with a confident front-foot defensive shot. Back of a length on a tight line just outside off and Gill lets it go. Four dots in a row. Beaten! This jags back in sharply and goes through Gill’s defence and over the stumps. Maiden over from Chameera.

  • November 02, 2023 14:02
    IND 8/1 in 1 over

    Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill will open the batting for India. Expect another brisk start, especially considering how teams batting first have gone about setting totals at Wankhede. Dilshan Madushanka with the ball. FOUR! First-ball boundary. Too straight and swinging into the pads and Rohit flicks it to the fine-leg boundary. OUT! Bowled! Off-stump goes flying and Rohit has to go! This one shaped away even as Rohit expected another in-ducker. Virat Kohli is in next and whips this off his pads and the ball just falls short of the short fine-leg fielder. This is straight and on a length and Kohli defends this back to the bowler. Full and driven to mid-off by Kohli for a dot ball. FOUR! Full and on the pads again and this time Kohli flicks it very fine and to the boundary.
