After winning the toss and electing to bowl, Sri Lanka started of in a disciplined manner restricting the batsmen in the Asia Cup 2014 match against  India at Fatullah. Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma opened the batting for India. They had just three on board in three overs but slowly opened up and scored a few boundaries. India are 26 for no loss in seven overs.

 

Sri Lanka in this match have gone in with just one pacer in the form of Lasith Malinga. Skipper Angelo Mathews shared the new ball with Lasith Malinga. Rohit struggled early on with low bounce and hardly managed to score easily.

 

But after four overs, the batsmen looked settled and avoided hitting the ball too hard. Dhawan placed the ball into the gaps on the off-side and managed to get a few boundaries. He drive Malinga on the up through covers and then guided one past point for second boundary in the fifth over.

 

Sachithra Senanayake was introduced early in the sixth over of the match, but that didn’t deter Rohit Sharma as he stroked him for a boundary.
