Sri Lanka progressed steadily on a track promising plenty of runs, with openers Upul Tharanga and Tillekeratne Dilshan putting together a solid stand of 91.

Dilshan was the more fluent of the two, but Tharanga caught up, and even though the run-rate at the halfway stage remained under five an over with that pair dismissed, a line-up that bats deep and an India attack prone to misfiring at the death meant an imposing target was a strong possibility.

Sri Lanka lost the middle order in quick succession but Lasith Malinga and Rangana Herath saw Sri Lanka through to 251/8 with a nice little cameo with Malinga and Herath both hitting sixes in the last over.
