Mahendra Singh Dhoni, whose finishing prowess has been under the scanner for some time now, got some runs under his belt after being promoted to number four in Cuttack and is likely to continue in the same position so that he gets enough overs in match situation before the ODI and T20 challenge in South Africa.

Sri Lanka lost their last seven wickets for 27 runs to end up with 172/9 as the injured Angelo Mathews was not available to bat. This was the fastest hundred by an Indian batsman in the format. Jaydev Unadkat and Hardik Pandya also managed to get a wicket each in their respective spells.

India's Rohit Sharma scored the joint-fastest century in Twenty20 worldwide cricket when he hammered his way to the landmark from only 35 balls against Sri Lanka in Indore on Friday.

# Rohit Sharma smashed 10 sixes and 12 fours i.e. 108 runs in boundaries.

Shreyas Iyer failed to open his account as he was dismissed for a golden duck. Rohit became the third player after Chris Gayle and Brendon McCullum to hit two centuries in this format. The Indian batsmen have made merry against a toothless attack.

Kusal Perera (77 off 37) and Upul Tharanga (47 from 29) gave Sri Lanka hope, but spinners Yuzvendra Chahal (4-52) and Kuldeep Yadav (3-52) did the damage as they collapsed from 145-1 to 172 all out to go 2-0 down with one to play.
