Rohit was dropped in the fifth over by Thisara Perera.

Apart from him, Stuart Binny, Robin Uthappa, and Rohit Sharma came back into the Indian side at the cost of Wriddhiman Saha, Ishant Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, and Ravichandran Ashwin. For Sri Lanka, Ajantha Mendis, Lahiru Thirimanne, Dinesh Chandimal, and Shaminda Eranga made comebacks to the side.
