Sri Lanka defeated India by a narrow margin of 2 wickets to take the top spot in the points table. In what was a close match, Kumar Sanggakara's 103 proved to be the difference between the two competing teams.

Chasing 265, Sri Lanka were off to a solid start with Kusal Perera (in pic) and Lahiru Thirimanne scoring fluently.
While Perera hit 64 off 81, his partner scored 38 to put on a 80-run stand for the opening wicket.
While Thirimanne eventually fell to R Ashwin's spin, Perera's confident knock was brought to an abrupt end by the same spinner in the 27th over.
While Ashwin did get his side into the match, Indian fielding was extremely shoddy with several catches being grassed.
Once Ravindra Jadeja came out to bowl, it did not seem to matter much as he claimed two in two to dent Lanka's chase - in the 32nd over.
The spinner weaved a spell of magical spin and finished with figures of 3/30.
Mohammad Shami too struck soon after, claiming two wickets.
Sangakkara at the other end survived a close call when - on 30 - he was let off by Dinesh Karthik who failed to knock the bails off.
It proved to be an extremely costly miss as Sangakkara raced to the three-figure mark on the back of sublime shots to the fence.
Although he fell in the 49th over, the tailenders managed to survive and cross the finish line.
Indian batting was rather jaded apart from Dhawan's knock.
Rohit Sharma is seen here making his way back after scoring just 13.
India skipper Virat Kohli (48) is seen here making his way back. He was removed by Ajantha Mendis who was responsible for staging a collapse with his four-wicket haul.
Sachitra Senanayake also claimed three wickets and will now surely be part of Sri Lanka's permanent strategy to use spinners to the maxium, going forward in the tournament.
