SIX! Lahiru Kumara to Virat Kohli. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over fine leg for 6 runs. Kohli seals it with a flourish.

India have beaten Sri Lanka by 7 wickets in Indore to go 1-0 up in the series. The victory was set up by their bowlers who were outstanding in the first innings. Kuldeep Yadav got the ball to turn appreciably in both directions to bamboozle the tourists while Navdeep Saini generated extreme pace to ruffle some feathers. Sri Lanka's 142/9 never looked like it would be enough and KL Rahul proved it with a fluent 45 in response. The hosts lost a couple of wickets before captain Virat Kohli finished things off with a rapid unbeaten 30 to send the crowd wild.

OUT! Caught. Lahiru Kumara to Shreyas Iyer. Short, outside off stump on the back foot hooking, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep square leg, by Shanaka. Kumara bags a consolation wicket with a vicious bouncer. Iyer went at it hard and picked out the man in the deep. Sri Lanka keep fighting hard but this match is only heading one way.

SIX! Lasith Malinga to Virat Kohli. Short, outside off stump on the back foot hooking, well timed in the air under control over deep backward square leg for 6 runs. That is Kohli at his best. This is a shot that will come in very useful for him in Australia where there is lots of pace and bounce. All the way for six to cause delirium in the stands.

FOUR! Lasith Malinga to Virat Kohli. Off cutter short, outside off stump on the front foot pulling, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Easy pickings, Malinga gets his variation slightly wrong and his opposite number ruthlessly takes advantage.
