Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan are taking India towards victory in the third One-Day International (ODI) at Hyderabad. In 32.1 overs, India are 184 for two, with Dhawan on 82 and Kohli on 27.

Dhawan has batted very well and has essayed a chanceless innings. He has been in command of the proceedings and is looking good for a big score. India, meanwhile, have taken the batting powerplay. Kohli is on the verge of doing something special as well. He could well become the fastest to score 6,000 ODI runs.

Earlier, Angelo Mathews won the toss and elected to bat. Chathuranga de Silva and Nuwan Kulasekara came in for Suraj Randiv and Dhammika Prasad. For India Dhawal Kulkarni came in place of Ravindra Jadeja. Mahela Jayawardene’s century and Tillakaratne Dilshan’s half-century helped to take Sri Lanka’s score to 243.
