  Commentary

  • That's it from us. Have fun and enjoy your Sunday night before Monday blues strike you.

  • Virat Kohli: They got off to a very good start and we thought we would be chasing something close to 300. This was a brilliant wicket for batting. The ball was coming on like a dream under lights. Shikhar and I enjoy batting together. The last three months have been a great time for him. The good thing is that he is capitalising on his purple patch. He can win you games with the way he bats and that's why we back him. I think we need to start planning for the 2019 World Cup around 24 months in advance. You can see a lot of surprises over the next few games.

  • Upul Tharanga: We started well but we did not capitalise on that. Someone should have carried onto get a big score after that. This is what we have been lacking for the last 2 to 3 years. At once stage, it looked like we would get to 300 but unfortunately, we couldn't do it. India played brilliantly. Even in the bowling, we will have to step up.

  • Shikhar Dhawan: Things have been going well for me. I have kept my focus on the processes and not on the results. The mental preparation helps me to be confident. I just wanted to play on the merit of the ball and keep my focus on.

  • Player of the match - Shikhar Dhawan

  • How would you describe this performance? Dominating is the word. Shikhar Dhawan (132*) and Virat Kohli (82*) made a short work of Sri Lanka's total and got India over the line in 28.5 overs with nine wickets to spare. Sri Lanka would be gutted with their performance considering the start they received from their top-three. India, on the other hand, were brutal on their approach, and now it will take something special from the home side to bounce back in the remaining four matches.

End of the Innings

India won by 9 wickets
Target: 217

  Full commentary

  • Sri Lanka finally showed up at the party, and it was good while it lasted, but they weren’t in it for long enough. Led by a formidable batting effort at the top of the order, Sri Lanka looked primed for a 300-plus total on a pitch that held few demons, but after losing eight wickets for 66 runs they only got as far as 216 from 43.2 overs. Innings report:

  • Indian spinners shoot Sri Lanka out for 216

    Home side collapse in 432 overs despite getting to 1502 after 27

  • Once Commanding the proceedings at 139 for 1, Sri Lanka lost their last nine wickets for just 77 runs. India would be delighted with their effort and now would fancy their chance to come back and chase the total down.

  • Rahul Chahal return as India opt to field

    India leave out Pandey and Rahane Vishwa Fernando makes his ODI debut for Sri Lanka

  • A young man by the name of Virat Kohli, fresh from guiding India to a victory in the Under-19 World Cup, was en route to Dambulla in 2008 as a squad member for India’s tour of Sri Lanka. Nine years on, he’s back in Dambulla, not nearly as on the edge with his emotions, and as the Indian skipper now. More from Roshan Thyagarajan:

  • Nine years on Kohli returns to where it all began

    As the Indian skipper now he has crucial decisions to make even as he tries to keep his method simple

  • Can a 'Yo-Yo' test define how good a player you are? In an ideal world, there should be no compromise on either skill or fitness. But this is far from an ideal world, and therefore certain adjustments must be factored in. The question, therefore, is would you go for the man with the superior talent, even if he is marginally found wanting on the fitness front? Or would you rather back the extraordinary athlete who might be a little light on the skills scales? R Kaushik:

  • Survival of the fittest yo yoing between skills and six packs

    Should you pick the talented man with iffy fitness or the supreme athlete with suspect ability Modern day cricket is rooting for the latter

  • Upul Tharanga: We were going to bat first. We saw in the last series that the team batting first got good scores. I told the boys we have to move on from the Test series and focus on this. There is a lot of confidence in the side. Lasith Malinga, Chamara Kapugedara, and Thisara Perera are some of the senior players coming in. Vishwa Fernando, who played the last Test, will make his (ODI) debut.

  • Virat Kohli: We are going to chase. It has been a while that we played on this track. The track does not have as much grass cover as it used to have a few years back. Should be a wicket to enjoy batting on. We love chasing. You have a bit of advantage winning the toss but you have to execute your skills. I was sitting on the same chair I was sitting 9 years ago. Have some happy memories here. The idea is to improve even after we have won games. As I said, you have to start well, be boring at times.

  • India Won the Toss & Elected to Field

  • A little under two months back, Rohit Sharma slipped into his 11th year in international cricket, the second active Indian to have completed a decade at the top level after Ishant Sharma. As if in celebration of that accomplishment, the national selectors named him vice-captain, for the first time. R Kaushik explores the possibilities that Rohit can bring to the table:

  • Excited Rohit prepares for behind the scenes role

    The landmark of finishing ten years of international cricket and the first time vice captaincy have served to stoke the Mumbaikars competitive juices further

  • Clearly, the members of the Indian side are on a short rope because of the depth on the bench and beyond, but there is one player under more pressure than the rest. MS Dhoni, the former skipper and a crucial cog in India’s transition in one-day cricket since his debut in 2004, was given a notice by MSK Prasad, the chief selector, after being drafted into the side for this series. Preview:

  • Sri Lanka need giant killing act against India

    While the visiting side have most pieces in place their only concern will be how MS Dhoni shapes up

  • If history is taken into account, not just the immediate one, India hold the edge. While Sri Lanka were still grappling with injuries and figuring a way to put out a fighting squad for this series, India were already looking at the 2019 World Cup, writes Roshan Thyagarajan.

  • Sri Lanka in search of lost glory against well oiled India

    It wont be easy but the ODI series gives Tharangas men a chance to show that cricket isnt dead in the island nation

  • Having won the three-Test series by a comfortable 3-0 margin, India will look to take that momentum into the five-match ODI series against a low-on-confidence Sri Lanka. The home side, on the other hand, will look to win at least two games to directly qualify for the 2019 World Cup.

  • Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the first ODI between Sri Lanka and India at Dambulla.

  Full commentary

  • That's it from us. Have fun and enjoy your Sunday night before Monday blues strike you.

  • Virat Kohli: They got off to a very good start and we thought we would be chasing something close to 300. This was a brilliant wicket for batting. The ball was coming on like a dream under lights. Shikhar and I enjoy batting together. The last three months have been a great time for him. The good thing is that he is capitalising on his purple patch. He can win you games with the way he bats and that's why we back him. I think we need to start planning for the 2019 World Cup around 24 months in advance. You can see a lot of surprises over the next few games.

  • Upul Tharanga: We started well but we did not capitalise on that. Someone should have carried onto get a big score after that. This is what we have been lacking for the last 2 to 3 years. At once stage, it looked like we would get to 300 but unfortunately, we couldn't do it. India played brilliantly. Even in the bowling, we will have to step up.

  • Shikhar Dhawan: Things have been going well for me. I have kept my focus on the processes and not on the results. The mental preparation helps me to be confident. I just wanted to play on the merit of the ball and keep my focus on.

  • Player of the match - Shikhar Dhawan

  • How would you describe this performance? Dominating is the word. Shikhar Dhawan (132*) and Virat Kohli (82*) made a short work of Sri Lanka's total and got India over the line in 28.5 overs with nine wickets to spare. Sri Lanka would be gutted with their performance considering the start they received from their top-three. India, on the other hand, were brutal on their approach, and now it will take something special from the home side to bounce back in the remaining four matches.
