Gill runs out half-centurion Fernando

Axar Patel struck off just his second ball as Dhananjaya de Silva was bowled for a golden duck. After Sri Lanka lost two wickets in the space of three balls, debutant Nuwanidu Fernando attempted to arrest the slide and even brought up his half century, although he was run out soon after, with a Shubman Gill dive for a catch at midwicket proving the cause of confusion between the two batters.

118/4 seemed like a scenario tailor-made for skipper Dasun Shanaka who was fresh off a century, but he was bowled round his legs trying to sweep Kuldeep Yadav.
