Commentary (Sri Lanka innings)

Virat Kohli was named the MAN OF THE MATCH. So with India drawing first blood, they take a 1-0 lead in the five-match series. The second ODI will be played at this very same ground on the 24th of July. Join us for that, till then, farewell!

For the first time since 2008, Zaheer Khan and Irfan Pathan led the bowling attack and they bowled a very good opening spell. Pathan in particular, looked at his impressive best and got the crucial wicket of Dilshan. Sangakkara came up with a classy hundred up his sleeve and things slowed down in the middle order. There was a late scare in the end, thanks to Perera and Sangakkara'a late outburst, but in the end, India prevailed through after the southpaw Sangakkara departed. Malinga struck a few lusty ones in the last overs but the asking rate was impossible to be touched by then.

India put up a very good total of 314, thanks to the century of Virat Kohli, who has is just growing with every stage of his life. He was well supported by Dhoni and Raina for that and Sehwag was unlucky to miss out on a deserving century.

Commentary (India innings)

Virat Kohli was named the MAN OF THE MATCH. So with India drawing first blood, they take a 1-0 lead in the five-match series. The second ODI will be played at this very same ground on the 24th of July. Join us for that, till then, farewell!

For the first time since 2008, Zaheer Khan and Irfan Pathan led the bowling attack and they bowled a very good opening spell. Pathan in particular, looked at his impressive best and got the crucial wicket of Dilshan. Sangakkara came up with a classy hundred up his sleeve and things slowed down in the middle order. There was a late scare in the end, thanks to Perera and Sangakkara'a late outburst, but in the end, India prevailed through after the southpaw Sangakkara departed. Malinga struck a few lusty ones in the last overs but the asking rate was impossible to be touched by then.

India put up a very good total of 314, thanks to the century of Virat Kohli, who has is just growing with every stage of his life. He was well supported by Dhoni and Raina for that and Sehwag was unlucky to miss out on a deserving century.

49.6 U Yadav to L Malinga, INDIA WIN BY 21 RUNS! Yorker outside off, Malinga lofts it away over extra covers. Does not take the run and there are hand-shakes all over. In the end after a late shock, India complete a comfortable win. 293/9

49.5 U Yadav to L Malinga, SIX! He is on a roll, but a little too late! Slower and fullish delivery on middle, Malinga clears his front leg and clobbers it straight down the ground for a maximum. 293/9

49.4 U Yadav to L Malinga, FOUR! Smashed! A tad short on middle, Malinga gives himself room and pulls it muscularly over deep square leg for a thumping boundary. 287/9

49.3 U Yadav to L Malinga, Looks to swipe it away and mistimes it to mid-wicket. 283/9

49.2 U Yadav to L Malinga, SIX! Clobbered! Slower delivery outside off, Malinga stays in his crease and heaves it away over deep mid-wicket for a maximum. 283/9

49.1 U Yadav to L Malinga, Slower delivery on middle, Malinga swats it straight to mid on. 277/9

A fine batting performance, which was helped by Sri Lanka's poor fielding as well. Virat Kohli continues his magic form with yet another century and was given good support earlier by Sehwag and then by Raina. Not a very good bowling performance to be mentioned for the Lankans. They went for plenty as 54 runs came off the last five overs. Join us in a while for the chase.

49.6 T Perera to I Pathan, On middle and leg, whacked away through mid-wicket for one to end the over. 314/6

49.5 T Perera to I Pathan, DROPPED! By Lahiru Thirimanne. Sums up Sri Lanka's lethargic fielding for today. Pathan gets underneath a full delivery and smokes it straight down to long on. Thirimanne moves a bit too much and drops that, gives away two runs as well. 313/6

49.4 T Perera to I Pathan, FOUR! Slams it away! A low full toss, Pathan picks his spot with a swat over mid-wicket. 311/6

49.3 T Perera to I Pathan, NOT OUT! Pathan survives the hat-trick! A very full delivery, Pathan aims to tuck it, but ends up scooping it back to Perera, who appeals. The umpire checks upstairs and replays show that it bounced after coming off the bat. 307/6

There is an appeal for a caught and bowled against Pathan! The umpire has gone upstairs!

Ravichandran Ashwin comes to bat. Perera on a hat-trick! He just took an ODI hat-trick some time back against Pakistan.

49.2 T Perera to MS Dhoni, OUT! Two in two! Dhoni is the man to go. India are paying for looking for some quick runs. Fuller length delivery on off, Dhoni gets underneath it with a whooshing movement of the wrists, the ball goes in the air and Thirimanne back-pedals to take fine catch at long off. 307/6

Irfan Pathan walks in next at number 6.

49.1 T Perera to S Raina, OUT! Finally there is a wicket and it's fine catch! A full toss this time at 125.4 kph, Raina goes for the slog and skies it away on the leg side. The ball swivels in the air and Senanayake(sub) judges it to perfection from square leg. 307/5

Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir make their way out to the middle. It will be Nuwan Kulasekara with the new ball.

Sri Lanka - Tillakaratne Dilshan, Upul Tharanga, Kumar Sangakkara(wk), Mahela Jayawardena(c), Dinesh Chandimal, Angelo Mathews, Lahiru Thirimanne, Thisara Perera, Nuwan Kulasekara, Lasith Malinga, Rangana Herath.

India - Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, MS Dhoni(c)(wk), Suresh Raina, Irfan Pathan, Ravichandran Ashwin, Zaheer Khan, Pragyan Ojha, Umesh Yadav.

Pitch report - It is a very firm, hard and dry wicket. This wicket is not famous for high scoring games. It is highly devoid of grass. India would want to ease themselves in the conditions, says Arun Lal.

Toss - MS Dhoni has won the toss and INDIA WILL BAT FIRST! Reckons that it's a good toss to win and will play a vital role in this ground. The two spinners will play, Ojha and Ashwin. Also, Irfan Pathan is in the squad as the lone all-rounder. Jayawardena says that it was important for them (their victory against Pakistan) and mentions that Rangana Herath comes in place of Jeewan Mendis.

Hello all and are kicking off, the first of the five-match ODI series between Sri Lanka and India at Hambantota. The Lankans would aim to impose their authority in home conditions, while the Indians, who are playing after a big layoff from international cricket, would like to kick away their rustiness, and start off in a positive note.

48.4 L Malinga to MS Dhoni, FOUR! Not that well timed. Fuller length outside off, Dhoni goes for the helicopter shot, does not middle it all as it goes the other way over mid off. Perera with the chase but to no avail. 301/4

22nd fifty for Suresh Raina in ODIs.

48.3 L Malinga to S Raina, Low full toss outside off, Raina aims to guide it down but gets a nick which dies before Sangakkara. Dhoni runs across but Raina is not ready. Malinga had a shy at the non-striker's end and Raina would have been a goner. 297/4

48.2 L Malinga to S Raina, Pitches it up outside off, Raina fails to get it away, appeal for caught-behind. 296/4

Sehwag is not walking and third umpire is called in. There is no zoomed image of the catch, and with what we could see, the ball may have just grassed the ground as Kulasekara gets both hands down. The confusion still stays with Jayawardena and co, who are having a long talk with the umpire. It's still very unclear whether the catch is clean or not, as there is no conclusive evidence. In the meanwhile, Tony Greig on air harps about the fact that Sehwag should have walked off, keeping the spirit of the game in mind, but didn't Sehwag have all the right to stand his ground? 45/1
