Video : An all round Sri Lanka beat India
Kumar Sangakkara hit a brilliant 103, as Sri Lanka survived anxious moments to beat India by two wickets in Fatullah for its second win in the Asia Cup.
The victory was set up by spinners Ajantha Mendis and Sachithra Senanayake, who shared seven wickets to restrict the reigning world champions to 9 for 264 in the day-night match.
But Sri Lanka lost wickets at regular intervals and was reduced to 7 for 216 in the 44th over when Thisara Perera helped Sangakkara add 42 crucial runs for the eighth wicket.
Mendis and Perera saw Sri Lanka through with four deliveries to spare in a nail-biting finish, giving their team a second win after they beat Pakistan in the tournament opener.
India, who won against Bangladesh, must defeat arch rivals Pakistan in Dhaka on Sunday to stay in contention for a place in the final.
