Yuzvendra Chahal spins India back into the contest

India

Aryan Surana

India were desperate to fight back after that 97-run opening stand between Pathum Nissanka and Kusal Mendis. The opening comes courtesy an attempted reverse sweep from the prodigiously talented Nissanka. The out of form Charith Asalanka then top-edged a slog sweep and suddenly India find themselves still right back in the game.

Meanwhile, at the other end Mendis has reached a 33-ball half-century himself. Sri Lanka need 69 off 42. They are still favourites with Bhuvneshwar Kumar having only one over up his sleeve.
