Earlier, Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant made the most out of rank turner M Chinnaswamy pitch, helping India post 252 after opting to bat first. Sri Lankan spinners ruled the roost but Iyer and Pant scored at a brisk pace to keep the scorecard ticking.

Enter Rishabh Pant and Iyer mistook the pink-ball as white ball and played a T20 knock. Pant’s 27-ball 39 helped India take the fight back to Sri Lanka. However, his whirlwind knock didn’t last long as he was cleaned up by Lasith Embuldeniya off a sharp turning delivery.

But Shreyas Iyer continued his impressive form. He anchored the innings from one end and tried building partnerships with Ravichandran Ashwin. He too scored a record pace, bringing up his half-century with a six to steady India. However, he would be ruing missing out on a well-deserved century after falling on 92. Lasith Embuldeniya and Praveen Jayawickrama were the most successful Lankan bowlers with three wickets each.
