43.3
1
Isuru Udana to Hardik Pandya. Slower length ball, to leg on the front foot pushing, outside edge to third man for 1 run, fielded by Rajitha. That will be that. India breeze home to a dominant seven wicket win. It looked as though Sri Lanka posted a challenging total, but India made it look like a belting pitch to bat on. They were helped by some indifferent bowling and sloppy fielding, but credit has to go to the batsmen. Rohit Sharma notched up his fifth hundred in this World Cup campaign, while Lokesh Rahul got one of his own, too. That finishes Sri Lanka's tournament for this year, which has been slightly disappointing in their view. India, however, go to the semi-finals in cracking form.

OUT! L.B.W. Isuru Udana to Rishabh Pant. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, hit pad to. Out the back of the hand, Pant doesn't spot it, and he is through his shot far too early. He is crouched down as the ball strikes the thigh, but the umpire still shakes his head at the appeal. Review taken, and it was a good one for Sri Lanka. All three reds appear on HawkEye, so the decision is reversed. Pant has to go.

OUT! Caught. Lasith Malinga to Lokesh Rahul. Short, off stump no foot movement cutting, Gloved to wicketkeeper, by Perera. Malinga gets another scalp in his final World Cup appearance. Dug in short, Rahul looking to lift it over the keeper again, but he gets cramped for room. Ends up swaying a long way back and falling to the floor. As that happens, the ball brushes the glove and loops into Perera's gloves.

SIX! Ravindra Jadeja to Angelo Mathews. Stock length ball, middle stump on the front foot Slog, leading edge in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. How has that gone for six? Looked as though Mathews was aiming over cow corner, but he got a leading edge over long on. Everyone thought it was going down the throat of the fielder, but it ended up sailing over the rope!

FOUR! Kasun Rajitha to Lokesh Rahul. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Switch Hit, well timed in the air under control past fine leg for 4 runs. That's cheeky. Rahul crouches down, watches it all the way onto the bat, and lifts the ball over the keeper's head for four.

FOUR! Kasun Rajitha to Rohit Sharma. Length ball, off stump on the front foot flick, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Too many boundary balls from Sri Lanka's perspective. Sharma gets another one to whip away off the pads, and it thuds into the rope in no time.

FOUR! Lasith Malinga to Rohit Sharma. Length ball, to leg on the front foot flick, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Malinga's line is erratic so far. He now slides onto the pads, and Rohit tucks it away past mid wicket for another boundary.

FOUR! Lasith Malinga to Rohit Sharma. Full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep backward point for 4 runs. Awful delivery. Wide full toss, and Rohit just uses his placement to get this to the fence. Opens the blade, and glides it away behind backward point.

FOUR! Lasith Malinga to Rohit Sharma. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot flick, well timed past long on for 4 runs. That's glorious. A turn of the wrists from Rohit, and he clips the ball between mid on and mid wicket beautifully. India have a flying start here.

FOUR! Lasith Malinga to Lokesh Rahul. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Steer, well timed past third man for 4 runs. Super batting. Third man taken out, and with the line being so wide, Rahul just opens the face to guide it away for another boundary.

FOUR! Kasun Rajitha to Lokesh Rahul. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. That might be up there with the best shot of the day. Rahul gets on top of the toes, and crunches it through the covers for four. Lovely high elbow.

FOUR! Kasun Rajitha to Rohit Sharma. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep point for 4 runs. That's extremely wide, and only drifts wider with the swing. Rohit stretches out, and creams it past point for four.
