  Commentary

  • That's it from us today. Do join us on Wednesday for the second ODI in Mohali. Till then, goodbye!

  • Thisara Perera: First of all we have to give all the praise to the bowler. They have done really well in this match. The discipline and length were excellent. This was unplayable wicket, I had not expected like that. We expected around 250-260. But the way Suranga (Lakmal) and Angelo (Mathews) bowled, we thought we will keep them to under 100-120. Suranga a has been our premier fast bowler. He has been doing that in all formats. Upul (Tharanga) gave us a good start and he is one of the best openers. We couldn't get the runs in the last few games. Todays it was an all-round success.

  • Rohit Sharma: Two games to go. Having said that, we were not upto the mark today. Not enough runs on the board. If we would have 70-80 runs it would have been a different game. It is important we as a team we play in these conditions. Not always you will get flat conditions. Today was not a good day for the batters, and hopefully, it is an eye-opener and we will look to come out better next time around. He (Dhoni) knows exactly with what to do in such types of condition. He was the only one battling. That is where we were 50-60 runs short. There was something in the field while bowling but we lost in while batting. (On captaincy)Not such a great experience, but no one likes losing. I have been in these situations, and it is not always pretty. We will look to bounce back.

  • A coy Suranga Lakmal is the Player of the Match. Lakmal: Last few years I have worked hard and I am so happy it is coming off. My fitness and everything has been really good.

  • No one in their wildest dreams would have thought Sri Lanka would win the first ODI, but they have, and in some style, handing the Indians an absolute drubbing to go 1-0 in the three-match ODI series. It was the Sri Lankan bowlers who set up the match for their team. Suranga Lakmal bowled an exceptional spell ending with figures of 10-4-13-4, bowling all his overs in one go. He was ably supported by all the other bowlers as well as India restricted to only 112 in their first innings. Then, Upul Tharanga rode his luck as he setup a perfect platform for the rest of the batsman to follow with a 46-ball 49. Angelo Mathews (25) and Niroshan Dickwella (26) then polished off the chase with plenty of overs to spare.

  Full commentary

  • From the time Thisara Perera won the toss, Sri Lanka hardly put a foot wrong and have skittled out India for just 112 in 38.2 overs. it could have been much worse if not for Dhoni's blistering 87-ball 65, which included 10 fours and two sixes. But, he hardly found any support from the other end as the Sri Lankan bowler ran the batsman ragged. Suranga Lakmal was the pick of the bowlers finishing off his ten over in one go to end with exceptional figures of 10-4-13-4. He found excellent support in Nuwan Pradeep and Angelo Mathews who did not give the Indians an inch at any stage of the innings. The pitch mid you is doing all kinds of tricks, so it will not be an easy chase for the Lankans. Will they be able to pull it off? Join us in 40 minutes to find out.

    T Perera to M Dhoni, OUT, All over! He was running out of partners and has to go for the big hits. Length ball outside off, but this one was slightly out of reach of Dhoni, who looking for inside-out shot over cover ended up slicing it to deep cover for a simple catch. Excellent knock by the former skipper. M Dhoni c D Gunathilaka b T Perera 65(87) [4s-10] [6s-2]

  • Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan come to open the innings, Suranga Lakmal to start the bowling attack.

  • India have left out Ajinkya Rahane, and have gone for the young guns in Manish Pandey and Shreyas Iyer. Dinesh Karthik will provide the much-needed solidity to the lower-middle order, but it will be interesting to see who bats at No.4 for the hosts.

  • Rohit Sharma: We would have batted, so in some ways, this is a good toss to lose. The sun is shining and it looks like a good wicket to bat on. There will be some assistance for the fast bowlers early on, but we will look to play out the initial overs and see how it goes from there. It's a great honour to lead India and I hope we would be able to do some good things today. We are playing with six batters, one all-rounder, two spinners and two seamers.

  • Thisara Perera: We want to bowl first. It looks like a good batting track and we want to chase. We want to do our best. Some players are coming back from injury and we want to do our best and do something special.

  • Sri Lanka Won the Toss & Elected to Field

  • For India, Kedar Jadhav has been ruled out for the first ODI with a hamstring injury and Shreyas Iyer has been handed a debut. It is a 11:30 start so dew might not be much of an issue here.

  • Having said that India are without their skipper, Virat Kohli, who is on a much-needed break, and the Sri Lankans with a new skipper in Thisara Perera will hope to turn a few heads with some solid cricket.

  • The Sri Lankans are back in a more cleaner environment, breathing fresh air in a different format. But, will there be any difference in the eventual result? To put it mildly, 2017 has not been kind for the Islanders, and more so in the shorter format of the game. Sri Lanka have won just four out of their 26 ODIs. Thrice they have been whitewashed in a five-match series, apart from losing 2-3 to Zimbabwe in their own backyard, and are currently on a 12-match losing streak. As a result, they are languishing at No.8 in the International Cricket Council’s ODI rankings. On the other hand, India are on a spree having won 19 out of the 26 ODIs this year and are at No.2 in the ICC rankings chart. A win in the first ODI will see them nose ahead of South Africa, the current table-toppers, but they will have to win the next two games as well to stay there.

  • Hello and Welcome to the first One-Day International between India and Sri Lanka and we are Live from the resplendent Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamsala.

  Full commentary

  • That's it from us today. Do join us on Wednesday for the second ODI in Mohali. Till then, goodbye!

  • Thisara Perera: First of all we have to give all the praise to the bowler. They have done really well in this match. The discipline and length were excellent. This was unplayable wicket, I had not expected like that. We expected around 250-260. But the way Suranga (Lakmal) and Angelo (Mathews) bowled, we thought we will keep them to under 100-120. Suranga a has been our premier fast bowler. He has been doing that in all formats. Upul (Tharanga) gave us a good start and he is one of the best openers. We couldn't get the runs in the last few games. Todays it was an all-round success.

  • Rohit Sharma: Two games to go. Having said that, we were not upto the mark today. Not enough runs on the board. If we would have 70-80 runs it would have been a different game. It is important we as a team we play in these conditions. Not always you will get flat conditions. Today was not a good day for the batters, and hopefully, it is an eye-opener and we will look to come out better next time around. He (Dhoni) knows exactly with what to do in such types of condition. He was the only one battling. That is where we were 50-60 runs short. There was something in the field while bowling but we lost in while batting. (On captaincy)Not such a great experience, but no one likes losing. I have been in these situations, and it is not always pretty. We will look to bounce back.

  • A coy Suranga Lakmal is the Player of the Match. Lakmal: Last few years I have worked hard and I am so happy it is coming off. My fitness and everything has been really good.

  • No one in their wildest dreams would have thought Sri Lanka would win the first ODI, but they have, and in some style, handing the Indians an absolute drubbing to go 1-0 in the three-match ODI series. It was the Sri Lankan bowlers who set up the match for their team. Suranga Lakmal bowled an exceptional spell ending with figures of 10-4-13-4, bowling all his overs in one go. He was ably supported by all the other bowlers as well as India restricted to only 112 in their first innings. Then, Upul Tharanga rode his luck as he setup a perfect platform for the rest of the batsman to follow with a 46-ball 49. Angelo Mathews (25) and Niroshan Dickwella (26) then polished off the chase with plenty of overs to spare.
