    IND vs SL: With this win, India are into the final

    India's victory secures their spot in the final, while Sri Lanka's impressive winning streak comes to an end.

    As for Pakistan, they face a crucial scenario.

    With Sri Lanka holding a superior net run rate, Pakistan must secure a win on Thursday to qualify for the final. 

    However, if the match ends in a washout, Sri Lanka will advance to the final due to their superior net run rate.

    IND vs SL: India end Sri Lanka's 13-match winning run in ODIs

    The pitch proved to be quite challenging, making the pursuit of 214 runs a formidable task. Bumrah and Siraj made early inroads, capturing three quick wickets. 

    However, Sadeera and Asalanka built a partnership but Rohit introduced Kuldeep Yadav and he disrupted their momentum. Following that, Jadeja stepped up and reduced Sri Lanka to 99/6. 

    However, Dhananjaya de Silva and Wellalage recovered the innings with a 63-run partnership. At that juncture, Sri Lanka seemed to hold a slight advantage. 

    de Silva, in an attempt to clear the boundary, was caught out, and despite Wellalage's resilience, the rest of the team faltered.

    Kuldeep Yadav took 4 wickets while Jasprit Bumrah and Ravindra Jadeja claimed two each. Mohammed Siraj and Hardik Pandya took 1 each to finish the game in India's favour.

    IND vs SL: WICKET - Kuldeep Yadav claims 150 ODI wickets

    This wicket also marks Kuldeep Yadav's achievement of reaching 150 ODI wickets.

    A disappointing shot results in India's victory. 

    The delivery is pitched very full, targeting the stumps. 

    Pathirana opts for a sweep but fails to connect, allowing the ball to slip through his legs and crash into the stumps.

    IND vs SL: WICKET - SKY takes a low catch and Theekshana is OUT

    A sensational catch, and it's Suryakumar Yadav (SKY) who makes the grab. 

    It was a length delivery aimed at the stumps, angling into Theekshana, who flicked the ball. 

    He shifted to his right and executed a diving catch, snatching the ball just above the grass with his fingers clearly underneath. 

    The third umpire had an uncomplicated decision to make, confirming the catch.

    IND vs SL: WICKET - Jadeja sends back Dhananjaya de Silva

    Jadeja puts an end to the threathing partnership.

    The batsman noticed the mid-on fielder positioned inside the circle and attempted to clear him with a lofted shot. 

    But the shot lacked the required elevation, and as the bat twisted in his hands, Shubman Gill stepped up and safely pouched the ball with a well-judged overhead catch.

    IND vs SL: WICKET - Brilliant catch by Rohit, Dasun Shanaka goes

    A fantastic low catch marks Jadeja's impactful return to action. 

    He delivered a full, tossed-up delivery just outside the off-stump. 

    Shanaka, in his attempt to push the ball away from his body, got an outside edge. 

    The ball spun away, causing the outside edge and it was a low catch that nearly reached the ground. 

    BUT, Rohit Sharma displayed exceptional reflexes, diving to his right, and securing the catch brilliantly with both hands.

    Asalanka crouched down to attempt a sweep but ended up gloving the ball as it deflected off the pad. 

    KL Rahul exhibited remarkable awareness as he swiftly dived forward and to his right, managing to take a low catch. 

    Umpire Richard Illingworth promptly spotted the contact and raised his finger in a flash.

    India has secured the crucial wicket they were looking for!

    Samarawickrama attempted to play a big shot and advanced down the pitch but failed to reach the ball's pitch.

    Unfortunately, he missed it on the inside edge, and KL Rahul completed the dismissal behind the stumps. 

    The square leg umpire had no reason to refer the decision upstairs; it was a clear-cut dismissal.

    IND vs SL: Asalanka dropped by Ishan Kishan

    Kishan has dropped the catch!

    It appears he initially misjudged the trajectory and then attempted a diving effort to reach it. 

    Kishan reacted a tad late and made a dive to grab the ball just inches from the ground, but it slipped from his grasp.

    IND vs SL: WICKET - Siraj strikes and silences the crowd

    Sri Lanka three down and the spinners are yet to bowl an over.

    Sri Lanka's spinners did all the damage while India was batting, but it is India's seamers who are leading the way in the 2nd innings.

    It is a good-length ball angled across, Karunaratne goes hard on the cut and the outside edge flies to the first slip. 

    Gill shows good reflexes and takes a sharp catch over his head.

    IND vs SL: WICKET - 2nd for Bumrah

    Mendis had an inkling about it, yet he chose to linger, hoping to escape. 

    But the Indians were celebrating. 

    The slow, drifting delivery dips in front of the batsman. He moves forward, attempting to play it defensively, but is completely fooled by the lack of pace. 

    Instead, he ends up gently popping the ball towards the fielder at cover.

    The initial breakthrough arrives with the fall of the first wicket. 

    The ball subtly swerves with Bumrah's natural angle before straightening. 

    Nissanka has no choice but to attempt a shot, but all he manages is a tentative poke. 

    The ball takes an edge and swiftly travels into the waiting hands of KL Rahul, who dives to make a crucial catch.

    IND vs SL: India 213 all out

    All 10 wickets to spinners!

    It's the first time India has experienced this.

    This is also the 14th consecutive match in which Sri Lanka has bowled out their opponents in ODIs. 

    After being 80/0, India started losing wickets courtesy of Dunith Wellalage who took a maiden fifer.

    But the surprise was Asalanka's off-breaks who complemented Wellalage with a four-fer.

    Theekshana was the last to send back Axar Patel in the last over.

    Among Indian batters Rohit Sharma (53), Shubman Gill (19), Ishan Kishan (33), KL Rahul (39) and at the end Axar Patel (26) were the main contributors.

    A maiden five-wicket haul for Wellalage, and he achieved it with a successful review on the last ball of his spell. 

    He delivered a quicker, fullish delivery outside off, with a hint of turn away. 

    Hardik Pandya moved forward to defend, but the ball took a thick outside edge.

    Kusal Mendis was highly confident in his appeal after the umpire did not agree with the appeal. 

    Sri Lanka decided to review, and it turned out to be a successful one.

    IND vs SL: WICKET - Wellalage is on FIRE, sends back Rohit Sharma

    Wellalage and the Sri Lankan team have no complaints, as they've managed to secure three quick wickets.

    The delivery in question was an arm ball, landing slightly short, which prompted Rohit to stay back in an attempt to handle it. 

    Unfortunately for him, the ball didn't bounce as expected and skidded through, narrowly missing the toe-end of the bat before crashing into the leg stump.

    Wellalage gets his second wicket, delivering a standout performance for Sri Lanka. 

    This is a significant breakthrough, considering Kohli's recent century. 

    However, Kohli's innings lasted only 3 runs. The delivery from Wellalage was shortened in length, and the ball behaved unexpectedly, adhering closely to the pitch's surface. He chips it tamely to mid-wicket where Shanaka takes an easy catch.
