Sri Lanka have had a stunning turn of events after choosing to bowl first against India at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Left-arm seamer Dilshan Madushanka made a sensational comeback by uprooting Rohit Sharma's off-stump after conceding a first-ball boundary to peg the hosts back from the outset in a crucial game.
The incident occurred in the very first over of the match as Madushanka unleashed a swinging delivery but it landed towards the pads as the Indian captain picked up a boundary through the mid-wicket region. However, the right-hander played the wrong line in the 2nd delivery, thereby losing his off-stump.

India go in with an unchanged line-up to face Sri Lanka:
With a semi-final spot up for grabs, the home side went in with an unchanged side from the one that beat England at the Ekana Sports City in Lucknow. All-rounder Hardik Pandya remains on the sidelines due to the ankle injury suffered during the match against Bangladesh in Pune.
For Sri Lanka, the match undeniably is a must-win fixture as they are languishing at 7th in the standings. The 1996 World Cup winners are coming off a thumping loss against Afghanistan. Their focus will also be on finishing within 7 to ensure their automatic qualification for the Champions Trophy next year.
Kusal Mendis announced one change at the toss, bringing in wrist-spinner Dushan Hemantha for Dhananjaya de Silva.
