Over 76.5 Ravindra Jadeja bowls a tossed up delivery to Lahiru Kumara, out Caught by Shami!!  Kumara attempts a wild slog - can't blame him for his approach - and was caught at mid-off. 
Kohli: Last time we should have won and it dented our confidence. This time we are a more experienced side and that's what is showing in the field. All bases covered nicely. Everyone turned up. The surface didn't offer much, that's why the win is speacial. Persistnet pressure for longer periods always pays off and that's something I believe in. Last time it was good for bowling and this time it is good for batting.Only 3 openers make the squad. It's good to have guys scoring guys rather than guys not scoring consistently. It felt nice that it came off nicely. Abhinav batted well. He deserved a 100 as well.

Herath: It's getting better. There was a fracture on the same finger previously and I got hurt on the same finger. All credit to India, they outplayed us. Losing Asela is a great loss for us. But we want to improve and come back strong
Shikhar Dhawan is the Man of the Match
India won the match by 304 runs lead the series with 1-0
Herath and Gunaratne are Absent Hurt!
