Ind's batting on 09/07/2013 once again started cautiously with Rohit Sharma and Shikar Dhawan trying to lay the foundation. After Dhawan's wicket, Virat Kohli, Dinesh Karthik showed some signs of form but soon fell. The best highlights of their batting was Rohit Sharma who remained not out at a score of 48 before rain washed out their innings at a score of 119 for 3 in 29 overs.
SL's bowling was pretty good at times but not throughout as they really couldn't make frequent in roads into the Indian batting lineup. Their target as a result of D/L was set to 178 in 29 overs which was going to be tough on a greenish wickets. Rangana Herath was the best highlights of their bowling picking up two wickets.

Ind's bowling on 09/04/2013 was superb to start with apart from Umesh Yadav's expensive spell.
