The two Indian batters cruised over the 50-run mark with ease against Sri Lankan spinners, putting India in command. Rohit, on the other hand, was bowled by Sri Lankan fast bowler Lahiru Kumara while attempting to pull a short ball, falling for 29 off 28 balls with six boundaries.

The Indian wicket-keeper batsman appeared to be on his way to a century, but he misjudged a straight ball that smashed into his stumps, giving Sri Lanka and their seamer Suranga Lakmal cause for celebration. Following Pant’s departure, Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin moved India above the 350-run mark.
