Siriwardana to Kohli, FOUR runs, short one at middle stump, goes deep in the crease and lifts the pull over midwicket with quick arms
42.1

Dananjaya to Jadhav, FOUR runs, shot! Oh lovely! Tossed up at middle stump, down the track to meet it at the pitch, and he drills it over the umpire
38.4
4
Malinga to Jadhav, FOUR runs, overpitched at leg stump, flicked between fine leg and deep square. The two fielders converge, nearly knock each other out and in the end, even after putting in the slide, deep square has no idea where the ball is. He's looking around, sliding into the rope, as the ball follows him and makes connection
37.5
4
Pushpakumara to Jadhav, FOUR runs, nicely played. Good length at middle stump. Gets low and rolls his wrists over the sweep to find the square leg boundary
36.6
4
Malinga to Jadhav, FOUR runs, very, very fine. Too short and angling down leg, Jadhav takes him on with the pull and plays this very delicately to beat fine leg. Nicely done.
35.3

de Silva to Kohli, FOUR runs, wow, that is simply wow. Just a hint of room as he drilled this bullet drive past the cover fielder. No more than a metre or so to his left and he placed it superbly
33.5
4
de Silva to Jadhav, FOUR runs, short-arm jab, hammered into the deep midwicket boundary. Too short on off stump, he swiveled back and slapped that way
33.3
4
de Silva to Kohli, FOUR runs, clever little late cut, short third man fives over the ball and then escorts this to the boundary. Malinda Pushpakumara the culprit. He gave up. Not sure why. Just chased it through. Poor, very poor.
31.6

Pushpakumara to Jadhav, FOUR runs, nails this sweep into the deep midwicket boundary. Too much flight, drifting down leg, so it was a safe option for Jadhav to use the angle and pick the gap.
26.6

de Silva to Jadhav, FOUR runs, played this really nicely. Touch short, Jadhav stayed inside the crease and opened the bat face literally at the last moment to ease this past short third man. Used the pace of the bowler nicely
22.6
4
Siriwardana to Kohli, FOUR runs, gets forward, opens his wrists nicely to square drive this to the deep point boundary. There was deep cover, so the next best option to get a boundary was if he hit it behind square and he did just that. Inspired batting this
22.2
4
Siriwardana to Kohli, FOUR runs, whipped into the midwicket boundary. Too short, drifting into middle, he uses the depth of the crease and punches this away
22.1
4
Siriwardana to Kohli, FOUR runs, flat-bats this pull down to beat the diving long-on fielder. Another chase, another fifty. Not even a grand celebration. Yeah, too easy, all too normal, isn't it? 45th ODI fifty
19.5

Pushpakumara to Pandey, FOUR runs, excellent use of the feet. Converted that into a full toss and whips this from way outside off to the midwicket boundary. Terrific wrist work.
17.3
4
Pushpakumara to Kohli, FOUR runs, so beautiful from Kohli. Not all that short, but he trusted his technique and instincts. Rocked back and played this really late to glide this behind point. Quick hands, terrific hand-eye coordination
9.6
4
Fernando to Kohli, FOUR runs, sets up deep in the crease, picks the slower ball from off stump and hammers it over the umpire
9.5
4
Fernando to Kohli, FOUR runs, lovely. Fernando gives him width, and he's walking into this with a huge stride. High elbow, punched on the up, extra cover has no chance
8.3
4
Malinga to Pandey, FOUR runs, authority. He's pulled this back of a length ball through mid-on. It was moving away from him, but he was in position quickly and brought the axe down on it from third man's direction
3.5
4
Fernando to Sharma, FOUR runs, good length, swinging down leg, and he uses that shape to help it along fine with a flick
