With a target of 322 to chase, Sri Lanka lost Dickwella early but Gunathilaka and Mendis took up the mantle and took the game in their stride with a mammoth 159-run stand, with both scoring fifties. It set up the platform for the middle order which took complete advantage.

With this win, Sri Lanka kept themselves alive in the tournament overhauling India’s total of 321 for six with seven wickets in hand and eight balls remaining. For India Shikhar Dhawan scored his 10th ODI hundred scoring 125 while Rohit Sharma and (78 off 79) and MS Dhoni (63 off 52) registered half-centuries, but India were let down in the bowling department with Bhuvneshwar Kumar being the only wicket-taker in the match for India.

Sri Lankan Captain Angelo Mathews considers this as one of the top wins against India.  It was a fantastic wicket. The bowlers did brilliantly to restrict India to 321”, said Mathews.

Kusal Mendis is named the Man of the Match for his exceptional performance.
