21:00 hrs IST

Six wickets down

It is all going to plan for India as Ravi Bishnoi castles Kavindu Nadeeshan and Sri Lanka lose their sixth wicket. A straight one from the bowler and the batsman made a mess of it. The off stump is uprooted and SL are 195/6

20:44 hrs IST

20:25 hrs IST

SL four down

20:16 hrs IST

Match Equation

19:10 hrs IST

Rasantha steady

18:53 hrs IST

SL batting well

Kamil Mishara and Ravindu Rasantha have steadied the innings quite a bit after the early setback and although the run rate is not something spectacular, this can be a good foundation for them in the run chase. IND 68/1

18: 40 hrs IST

The equation

Sri Lanka need 243 runs from 39 overs. Rashantha and Kamil are batting nicely in the run chase. Ravi Bishnoi has been brought by Jaiswal.

18:27 hrs IST

Ball strikes the helmet

Rashantha has slammed a four off Singh and is looking dangerous. He is trying to increase the run-rate for the Islanders but Akash Singh has rattled him with a dangerous bouncer. He is seeking medical help as ICC now takes concussions very seriously.

18:15 hrs IST

Tidy Bowling

Sushant Mishra and Kartik Tyagi have kept it quite tight and Sri Lanka have really struggled to score runs till now. There were a couple of odd boundaries off the edge but the batsmen have not settled down at all and India will be looking to strike quickly once more. SL 28/1

18:06 hrs IST

Sushant strikes

A short-ish delivery from Sushant Mishra but Navod Paranavithana made a complete mess of it. A top edge sent the ball high into the air and Akash Singh completed an easy catch. SL 19/1

18:01 hrs IST

Lifeline for SL

3 overs gone and Sri Lanka are 13 for no loss. Kamil Mishara got the first boundary of the innings in the second over but India had a chance to dismiss Navod Paranavithana but the top edge landed safely.

17:51 hrs IST

Speedy Tyagi

Good speed from the young India fast bowler Kartik Tyagi and the fastest ball till now was around 145kph. He has impressed till now with his line and length but Indian fans will be expecting a wicket early from him.

17:46 hrs IST

SL innings

Navod Paranavithana and Kamil Mishara to open the batting for Sri Lanka while Kartik Tyagi will be bowling for India.India have a good target to defend and a couple of early wickets will seriously swing the match in their favour.

17:13 hrs IST

India finish with 297/4

8 runs from the final over and India finish with 297 for 4 after being sent in to bat first. Yashasvi Jaiswal top scored with 59. Captain Priyam Garg (56) and Dhurv Jurel (52*) too scored impressive fifties but it was a 27-ball 44 from Siddhesh Veer that enabled India to reach 297 in 50 overs.

17:06 hrs IST

Fifty for Dhruv

Dhruv Jurel is the third Indian batsmen to get to his fifty this innings. India 289/4 with 1 over to play.

17:03 hrs IST

Veer playing a blinder

SIX! Right out of the middle of the bat. Siddhesh Veer got all of it, a slog sweep and away she went for the 2nd six of the match. India really looking set for a 300+ total now.

16:58 hrs IST

A hat-trick of fours

Just when Sri Lanka were praised for their efforts in the death overs a couple of fielding lapses have give India hope of a 300. Three boundaries from the bat of Siddhesh Veer and he’s off a flier now.

16:52 hrs IST

SL applying the brakes

This is good from Sri Lanka. They have not allowed India to get away after the wicket of Garg. India need a big finish from their middle order to get close to the 300-run mark.

16:42 hrs IST

Garg falls for 54

OUT! Not the most pretty looking shots from Priyam Garg. He comes down the track and instead of going with the spin, decides to have a wild slog and ends up missing it altogether. The keeper whips the bails off in a flash to give the first wicket of this World Cup to Kavindu. India 236/4 after 43 overs

16:37 hrs IST

First Six

WOW! Just an excellent shot from Dhruv Jurel. He comes down the track, makes room and goes inside out to deposit the free hit over extra cover for the maximum of the match. Looks like India have just stepped on the gas here a little bit.

16:29 hrs IST

Fifty for captain

India U19 skipper Priyam Garg gets to his fifty. Another very good innings from a top-order Indian batsmen. But unlike Yashasvi and Tilak, Garg needs to carry on and get a big one for his side. India 212/3 after 41 overs

16:15 hrs IST

India nearing 200

Garg and Jurel have made sure India’s run rate don’t come down despite the set batsmen getting out on more than once occasion. India are nearing 200 and if these two can carry then they should post 300.

16:01 hrs IST

Tilak Verma departs

OUT STUMPED!Tilak Verma falls short of his fifty. Just when India were about to step on the accelerator, Sri Lanka strike. This has been the story of the day so far. Ashian Daniel gets his first wicket with a beauty and boy he deserved one. He has been very good today.

15:49 hrs IST

Garg looking good

India U19 skipper Priyam Garg is batting quite well right now as the right-hander has looked absolutely effortless against the Sri Lanka bowlers. He was respectful of Kavindu Nadeeshan as the spinner was getting a lot of spin but the youngster decided to free his arms in the next over as he slammed Matheesha Pathirana for a boundary. India 153/2

15:41 hrs IST

SL strategy

26 overs gone. India are 141 for the loss of two wickets. The slinger Matheesha Pathirana is consistently bowling outside the off stump in order to induce an edge from the batsmen and although he was able to make Tilak Varma play a rash shot, the ball landed in no man’s land.

15:30 hrs IST

Priyam Garg starts well

Garg looks a class act. It is amazing to see how easily he has been able to rotate the strike against the spinners in the middle over straightaway after coming into the crease. India 134/2 after 25 overs.

15:20 hrs IST

Yashasvi falls for 59

OUT! That was a rash shot from Yashasvi. He went for the wild hoick and got the outside edge and the keeper made no mistakes. Dilshan Madushanka is delighted, he’s got the wicket of one of India’s best top-order players.

India captain Priyam Gard walks into the middle.

15:12 hrs IST

Fifty for Yashasvi Jaiswal

FOUR! And that will be fifty for Yashasvi Jaiswal, a very good innings from the left-hander and that also brings up India’s 100. Can he go on and carry and get a hundred?

14:59 hrs IST

India rebuild

Yashasvi Jaiswal and Tilak have done a good rebuilding job for India. Sri Lanka applied a lot of pressure after getting the first wicket but these two left-handers absorbed all of that once again got India’s noses in front.

14:52 hrs IST

Yashasvi nearing fifty

Yashasvi Jaiswal is inching towards his half-century. This has been measured innings from the left-hander. He is well set and can do a lot of damage against spinners. India would be hoping he carries on and gets a big one. India 84/1 after 16 overs

14:40 hrs IST

Good period for Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka are slowly but surely making a comeback into this match. After breaking the opening stand, de Silva follows that one with a brilliant over to Tilak. Only 1 run from it. India 74/1 after 14 overs.

14:29 hrs IST

Sri Lanka get first wicket

OUT! He didn’t get that anywhere near from the middle of his bat and Divyansh Saxena has to take the long walk back for 23. De Silva strikes, a much-needed breakthrough for Sri Lanka. India 66/1

14:20 hrs IST

Yashasvi Jaiswal showing his class

Back to back boundaries from Yashasvi Jaiswal. How good was that shot through the mid wicket region. He walked across his stumps and flicked it with power to collect the first boundary of the over and then taps one through the third man area for the second boundary. 50 up for India in the first powerplay.

14:17 hrs IST

Ashian Daniel looks good

This has been an excellent start from Ashian Daniel. He has given away only 3 runs in his first overs and so far is also the only Sri Lankan bowler who has caused some troubles for the Indian openers.

14:10 hrs IST

Jaiswal, Saxena in great touch

2 FOURs! First through one through the covers from Jaiswal’s bat and then Saxena flicks one off his pads. Two boundaries from left-arm seamer Dilshan’s first over. India have raced to 43 in 8 overs, some early problems for Sri Lanka.

14:00 hrs IST

Cracking shot

FOUR! First real short of authority from Yashasvi Jaiswal and it races away to the boundary. Not a bad delivery from Matheesa just a tad fuller then he would have liked it to be and Jaiswal gets the big stride forward and strokes it through the covers region. India 34/0 after 6 overs

13:52 hrs IST

7 from the 4th

Another good over for India, 7 runs from it. Both the Sri Lankan new ball bowlers have been guilty of bowling either too full or onto the pads of Jaiswal and Saxena. As a result, India have 27 runs on the board in 4 overs despite hitting just one boundary.

13:45 hrs IST

First boundary

FOUR! Oren went around the wicket to correct his line but this time he erred on length and Saxena was up to the task. Not a big stride forward, the hands doing majority of the work like many of the Indian batters and he just drives it through cover-point region for a boundary.

13:40 hrs IST

Junior Malinga starts off well

A very good start from Matheesa Pathirana. He may have a slingy action and looks slighly unorthodox in the bowling crease but his lines were perfect to Jaiswal. India 9/0 after 2 overs.

13:35 hrs IST

5 from 1st over

A bit of swing from Oren but he was guilty of bowling down the pads of both the left-handers. Indian openers Jaiswal and Saxena have opened their accounts comfortably.

13:30 hrs IST

Players out there

Indian openers Yashasvi Jaiswal and Divyansh Saxena have walked into the centre. Both of them are left-handers.

Right-arm seamer Amshi Oren will start the proceedings for Sri Lanka from the Willows end.

13:27 hrs IST

The junior Malinga

17-year-old Matheesa Pathirana is known as the junior Malinga in local cricket. The fast bowler has an equally lowe-arm, slingy action like Malinga. It will be interesting to see if he can rattle the Indian top order today.
