Commentary

Sri Lanka won by 2 wkts | India Vs Sri Lanka Live Score, 4th ODI Match

That's it from all of us here. Join us tomorrow as the two minnows Bangladesh and Afghanistan take on each other in a must win game. Until then, take care and Cya!
Kumar Sangakkara: 'The dew on the ground made it easy for me. I was trying to focus hard and wanted to bat through the innings. We kind of stuttered in the middle but with Thisara coming lower down the order we knew that we would score. Chaturanga did well under pressure with the ball. Thankfully, I was fit enough to play the long innings.'
Kumar Sangakkara is the Man of the Match for his 18th ODI hundred
Mathews: 'I had a stiff groin but it is ok now. Well it was a good job by the spinners as they restricted a strong batting line-up. Then the champion came in and showed his class. Mendis is our trump card and he bowled very well today.'
Kohli: 'Well the bowlers did a good job in the last 10 overs. There was a lot of dew, we did not expect that. We were 30-40 runs short. Jadeja has been outstanding in recent times. Going at under 4 rus per over on this wicket was simply brilliant. We have to play some smart cricket against Pakistan.'
They did not help themselves. Kusal Perera was reprieved early, Karthik missed out on a stumping chance off Sangakkara while Thisara was dropped with the scores even. The dew did make things a bit more tougher for the Indians, Kohli was enterprising as a captain, but some basic errors cost them. That sets up an exciting clash with Pakistan, the winner of which will take a big step towards entering the finals. Stay with us for the presentation...
A superb match has ended and Sri Lanka have beaten the second Asian gaints in another cliff-hanger. The top-three set up the run chase, and although the Indian middle order pulled things back, Sangakkara ensured the victory for the Sri Lankans. Thirimanne and Kusal Perera were solid at the start while Sangakkara made his 18th ODI hundred. Jadeja and Ashwin pulled things back in the middle overs, but the much haunted death bowling came back to haunt India.
49.2 Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Thisara Perera 1
1 run, SL win, this was full and on the stumps, Perera was looking for the big swipe, gets a thick inside edge that rolls away in front of mid-on. Perera calls for a quick single, the fielder has a shy at the stumps and misses. Perera is home and dry
49.1 Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Thisara Perera 0
no run, Dhawan has dropped a sitter, this was full and outside off, Perera was looking to cream it through cover, hits it straight to Dhawan at mid-off, he drops a dolly. Rohit can't believe it neither can Dhawan
End of over 49, 11 runs (1 4 W 1 1 4 )
SL: 264/8
Ajantha Mendis - 5(2) This over: 5 runs
Thisara Perera - 10(16) This over: 6 runs
Mohammed Shami
(10.0 - 0 - 81 - 3)
48.6 Mohammed Shami to Ajantha Mendis 4
FOUR, edged and four, the scores are level and Kohli is left fuming. This was full and on off, Mendis was giving the charge, flashes at that and gets a thick edge. Karthik dives in despair but the ball races away past him and into the fence
48.5 Mohammed Shami to Thisara Perera 1
1 run, another low full toss from Shami, Perera drills it down towards long off, just a single though, gets Mendis on strike for the last ball
48.4 Mohammed Shami to Ajantha Mendis 1
1 run, on a good length and just outside off, Mendis pokes at that and gets a thick edge down towards third man
Ajantha Mendis, right handed bat, comes to the crease
Mendis is the new man in, can India take the last two wickets?
48.3 Mohammed Shami to Kumar Sangakkara W
out Caught by Ashwin!! Sangakkara falls after a superb hundrfed, but is it too late for India? This was a high full bunger from Shami, Sangakkara was giving the charge, the ball dipped on him and he ends up getting a thick edge towards short third man. The ball was dying on him, but Ashwin does well to cusp his hands underneath and claims a good catch. SL have lost their 8th wicket. Sangakkara c Ashwin b Shami 103(84) [4s-12 6s-1]
3 wickets for Mohammed Shami. Mohammed Shami is on a roll.
