That is it from us! The Lankans have shocked the world today but as Mathews said, they cannot afford to relax and need to build on the good work. With the series being a short one, India don't have much time to regroup and they need to address the issue quickly. Will they be able to level the series or will Sri Lanka clinch it in the next game? Join us for the second ODI on the 13th of December in Mohali at 1130 LOCAL (0600 GMT) to find out what happens next. Till then, take care and cheers!
Man of the Match, Suranga Lakmal is elated with his performance today. Informs he works very hard on his fitness which enables him to bowl the long spells. Thanks the coaching staff for developing him over the years.
Sri Lankan skipper, Thisara Perera is delighted with the win and credits his bowlers for doing most of the job. Reckons they were disciplined and were hitting the right lengths. Feels this is an unplayable wicket and he did not expect such a surface. He expected a score around 250 but due to their good bowling they restricted the opposition to a low total. Praises Lakmal for leading the way with the ball and then applauds Tharanga for laying the foundation with the bat. Ends by saying it feels good when everything goes your way.
Indian skipper, Rohit Sharma, says, they were not up to the mark with the bat. He further adds the bowlers did try their best. Feels had they had another 70 to 80 runs more it would have been a different game. Admits not always you will get to play on flat pitches and they want to strive on these conditions. Credits Dhoni for his innings and admits that the wicketkeeper batsman has done it a lot of times. Opines had Dhoni got support from the rest, it would have surely made a difference. Ends by saying it is not a great experience being on the losing side in your first match as a captain.
Angelo Mathews says this is a special win and they kept working really hard in the nets for this. Further adds they still have two more games to go and they can't relax. Admits you can't give India a sniff and always have to put your foot on their throat. Lauds Lakmal for his effort and praises the fielding too. Opines he never thought the ball would move as much as it did. Mentions it is a big confidence booster for them but they can't be complacent. Informs he feels comfortable to bowl in the shorter format and finds it difficult in the longer format of the game.
If not full, half the match was over for the hosts in the first innings after their dismal show with the bat. They didn't have enough on the board and it was always going to be tough for their bowlers. Bumrah and Kumar did strike early but once the opposition started to counter-attack, they fell flat. Pandya was very expensive while a wicket off a no ball and sloppiness on the field didn't help their cause either. They need to rectify the mistakes they committed today if they are to level the series in the next one. Meanwhile, Angelo Mathews is alongside Sanjay Manjrekar for an interview...
Sri Lanka have beaten the odds to come out victorious here today. More than anything they will be relieved that they have finally managed to end their 12-match losing streak and boy, they did that in a stunning manner. After an emphatic show with the ball, 113 was always an easy task. Though they lost two early wickets but Tharanga continued his rich vein of form in 2017. He stroked a counter-attacking 49 which almost sealed the deal. Mathews offered good support while Dickwella came out swinging his bat and made sure they end up on the right side of the result.

All smiles in the Sri Lankan camp as they WIN BY 7 WICKETS WITH 176 BALLS TO SPARE!

OUT! It's not a no ball! LAHIRU DRAGS IT ON! India fighting their way back into the game. A big wicket as Thirimanne was in decent form. An excellent delivery from Kumar to get his first. He lands it on a length around off, gets it to shape back in. Thirimanne tries to defend it off the back foot but is undone by the inswing as he gets an inside edge onto the stumps. They go upstairs to check for the no ball. The first replay isn't conclusive as the non-striker is in the way. The second is also not as there is a fielder who comes in the way now. After the third one, the umpire decides to give it out and Thirimanne is walking back. Sri Lanka need 94 runs to win with 8 wickets in hand.
It's all happening here. Thirimanne is bowled but the excitement of the Indians has been cut short by the umpire as he again wants to have a look at the landing...

Free hit coming up now.

Jasprit Bumrah To Danushka Gunathilaka OUT!
OUT! First one down! Bumrah strikes! You could see Gunathilaka getting frustrated and he tried counterattacking which has brought his downfall. Bumrah serves a full ball outside off, Gunathilaka backs away and tries to go big but the ball takes the outside edge to Dhoni who takes it easily. A needless shot by Gunathilaka to be honest. Nevertheless, the Indians are ecstatic. SL need 106 more to win.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar To Upul Tharanga
Kumar has been unlucky! He again beats the outside edge. He pulls his length back on off, the ball nips away after pitching and also stays low. Tharanga is beaten by the swing and the away bounce as he tries to play it on the off side.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar To Upul Tharanga
FOUR! This should get him going! Tharanga just loves it there. Full and outside off by Kumar. A lot of width offered and the batsman cashes on it. Upul leans into it and drives it past the diving point fielder for a boundary. First of this innings.

Length ball, pitched around leg. Tharanga tries to flick but misses and is hit on the pads. The Indian players make a stifled appeal but the umpire shakes his head. Pitching outside leg for me!

Jasprit Bumrah To Upul Tharanga
Good length around off, pitches and moves away. Tharanga is squared up as he tries to defend. He gets a soft leading edge towards covers.
Jasprit Bumrah will bowl with the second new ball. He too has two slips in place.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar To Upul Tharanga
Catch it is the call but no fielder there! Again, Kumar bowls it fuller around off, gets some movement away from the batsman this time. Tharanga goes at it with hard hands as he tries to drive it through the off side. The ball takes a fat outside edge and goes through the vacant third slip area for a run.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar To Danushka Gunathilaka
Starts off right on the money. Fuller in length around off, swinging away. Excellent seam position by the bowler. Gunathilaka defends it towards mid off.
We are back for the chase. 113 is what India have to defend and early wickets is the call for the hour. They walk out to the middle with the umpires. For Sri Lanka, one partnership is all they need to chase this target down. Upul Tharanga and Danushka Gunathilaka will open the batting for them. Bhuvneshwar Kumar will bowl the first over. If there is any swing available, he will be the one to exploit it. He has two slips in place. Here we go...
