  • 18:50 (IST)

    IND vs SL: WICKET!

    Umran Malik gets the wicket of Charith Asalanka. It was bowled down leg side and Asalanka should have punished it for a four but he rather lost his wicket on it. He edged the ball and KL Rahul took a really good catch diving down the leg side.

  • 18:42 (IST)

    SL 32/2 (7.3)  

  • 18:10 (IST)

    IND vs SL: Siraj strikes again!

    SL 23/2 (5.3)

  • 18:07 (IST)

    IND vs SL: WICKET!

    Avishka Fernando has been dismissed by Mohammed Siraj. It was pitched up and got a hint of outside swing. Fernando wanted to play it across the line and got a leading edge. The ball went high in the air but Hardik Panya settled himself beautifully under the ball and took the catch with ease.

  • 17:56 (IST)

    That is the end of 50 overs and India have posted a daunting total of 373 for 7 against Sri Lanka in Guwahati. Rohit Sharma’s 83 and Shubman Gill’s 70 played a crucial role in providing India a solid platform, before Virat Kohli — with his 113 — capitalised on it to help the side reach to a really big score.

    IND 373/7 (50)

  • 17:07 (IST)

    IND vs SL: Virat Kohli is out!

    A slower ball from Kasun Rajitha eventually outfoxes Virat Kohli. The India batter wanted to hit the ball on leg side but failed to hit it from the middle. The ball went high in the high near the short leg region and Kusal Mendis took the catch. Kohli falls for 113 off 87 balls. 

    IND 364/7 (48.2)

  • 17:00 (IST)

    IND vs SL: FOUR!

    A four from Virat Kohli to long-on. He came down the track and still adjusted to hit the short ball towards long-on where Sri Lanka fielder’s poor show saw the ball slip from hands and run for a four. The Sri Lanka players are in complete disarray.

    IND 361/5 (47.2)

  • 16:53 (IST)

    IND vs SL: Virat Kohli hits century!

    Ladies and gentlemen, there is the international century number 73 for Virat Kohli. And in ODIs, it is the 45th hundred for the player. He is only four short of Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 49 in the format. Kohli has been lucky twice today, but he grabbed those opportunities with both his hands. Meanwhile, he looked extremely settled today. 

    IND 347/5 (46.2)

  • 16:39 (IST)

    IND vs SL: Back-to-back FOURS!

    A back-of-the-hand slower ball from Chamika Karunaratne and Virat Kohli spotted it early. He flicked it wide of long-on for a four, while the second one was hit by him on the off side. He is now on 89 off 72 balls.

    IND 326/4 (43.4)

  • 16:36 (IST)

    IND vs SL: Kohli dropped again!

    This is a crime from Sri Lanka skipper Dasun Shanaka. He has dropped Virat Kohli at cover. It was a regular catch but Shanaka failed to hold on to it. Kohli gets a breather on 81.

    IND 317/4 (43)

  • 16:29 (IST)

    IND vs SL: SIX!

    Flighted delivery from Wanindu Hasaranga from outside off stump and Hardik Pandya, who is new at the crease, didn’t spare it. He slammed it with power and the ball comfortably flew over the long-off for a six.

    IND 310/4 (41.4)

  • 16:26 (IST)

    IND vs SL: WICKET!

    KL Rahul is out for 39 off 29 balls. It was a slower ball from Kasun Rajitha. Rahul spotted it well and wanted to work it down the leg side, he even got some bat on it but the lack of pace eventually got better of him as the ball hit his stumps.

    IND 303/4 (40.5)

  • 16:24 (IST)

    IND vs SL: FOUR!

    How good a shot this is from KL Rahul! It was not a fuller ball but Rahul beautifully got underneath the it and played it on the rise for a four over extra cover. 

    IND 303/3 (40.4)

  • 16:22 (IST)

    IND vs SL: India in the driver’s seat!

    More 10 overs are remaining in this game and India are well in course of a big total. They should look to add at least 80 more runs from here as both Virat Kohli and KL Rahul are looking in sensational touch.

    IND 294/3 (40)

  • 16:11 (IST)

    IND vs SL: Back-to-back FOURS!

    While the dropped catch by Kusal Mendis did hurt Sri Lanka, Virat Kohli is now hurting them even more. He has hit two back-to-back fours to Kasun Rajitha, who could have had his wicket on the first ball of this over itself. Nonetheless, both the fours had the mark of Kohli’s class.

    IND 268/3 (36.5)

  • 16:08 (IST)

    IND vs SL: Kohli dropped!

    Kusal Mendis has dropped the catch of Virat Kohli behind the stumps! How costly is this going to be for Sri Lanka? Kohli came down the track and wanted to drive the ball on the rise. He got an outside edge but Mendis made a mess of it behind the stumps.

    IND 258/3 (36.1)

  • 16:06 (IST)

    IND vs SL: SIX! Fifty for Virat Kohli

    There is the fifty for Virat Kohli. He comes down the track and hits the ball over long-on for a six to race to his half-century in 47 balls. This is just another fine knock from the India star. He started with some quick runs and then slowed down after the wickets fell.  

    IND 249/3 (35.2)

  • 16:03 (IST)

    IND vs SL: FOUR!

    A full toss ball from Dunith Wellalage outside off stump to KL Rahul and the India batter comfortably slices it for a four. This is poor bowling as Sri Lanka were well in control, but this boundary will release the pressure.

    IND 243/3 (35)

  • 15:54 (IST)

    IND vs SL: Mini comeback for Sri Lanka!

    Sri Lanka bowlers have managed to pull things back in control after the wicket of Shreyas Iyer. Until then, India were going all guns blazing despite losing the wickets of Shubman Gill and Rohit Sharma. Call this a mini comeback for Sri Lanka, but India are still enroute for a big total.

    IND 224/3 (32)

  • 15:39 (IST)

    IND vs SL: WICKET!

    Shreyas Iyer is gone! This is a big wicket for Dhananjaya de Silva as Iyer was turning out to be dangerous after shifting his gears. He wanted to go for a big one but hit the ball straight into the hands of Avishka Fernando at deep backward square leg. Iyer departs for 28 off 24 balls.

    IND 213/3 (29.1)

  • 15:38 (IST)

    IND vs SL: SIX!

    Oh! That’s an authoritartive shot from Shreyas Iyer on the ball of Wanindu Hasaranga. He danced down the track and slammed the half-volley over long-on for a six. It got a lot of height but also covered enough ground to go outside the boundary rope. 

    IND 210/2 (28.2)

  • 15:34 (IST)

    IND vs SL: FOUR! 200 up for India

    Shreyas Iyer hits a four at long-on and there is the 200 for India. They have reached there in only 27 overs. This is a really good batting track and India must target a total close to 400.

    IND 200/2 (27)

  • 15:20 (IST)

    IND vs SL: ROHIT HAS PLAYED ON!

    Rohit misses out on a ton! He gets an inside edge, and loses his off and middle stumps.

    Rohit Sharma b Madushanka 83 (67)

  • 15:12 (IST)

    IND vs SL: FOUR RUNS!

    What a shot! Kohli is on the charge right from the get-go. He goes ahead with a shot and places this wide of mid-on

  • 15:02 (IST)

    IND vs SL: OUT!

    GONE! Sri Lanka finally get the breakthrough they had been craving for long. Gill is looking to play it square. Misses it. Given out lbw and he doesn’t take the review after a brief chat with Rohit. Shanaka strikes

    Shubman Gill lbw b Shanaka 70 (60)

  • 14:59 (IST)

  • 14:53 (IST)

    Shubman Gill scores 5th half-century in 51 balls. Another steady innings from the youngster.

    Late-cut with some pace on it. The outfield is quick. Beats deep third, who is already quite square.

  • 14:29 (IST)

    IND vs SL: 50 FOR ROHIT!

    Rohit Sharma scores half-century in 41 balls. What a knock this has been from the India captain so far.

    India 86/0 in 12.3 overs against Sri Lanka

  • 14:20 (IST)

    IND vs SL: ROHIT SURVIVES!

    Rohit survives! Sri Lanka make a strong appeal but the umpire says ‘not out’. Shanaka takes the DRS, and the the umpire call saves Rohit. 

  • 14:16 (IST)

    Another shot ball, another boundary for the Indian skipper! Rohit swivels and rolls his wrists to keep it down and beat deep square leg.

  • 14:02 (IST)

    IND vs SL: SIX!

    Rohit pulls this into the stands. He has played that shot innumerable times in the past, but seems fresh every time he pulls one of these out of the bag. 

  • 13:54 (IST)

    IND vs SL: SHOT!

    On the pads, and Gill flicks this off the backfoot. The outfield is quick, and the ball beats the incoming man from square leg
