Rahul went too deep in his crease while facing spinner Jeevan Mendis in the tenth over and dislodged the bails with his right foot.
Pandey combined with Dinesh Karthik, who made 39 not out, in a 68-run partnership to help India overwhelm the target with nine balls to spare.

I am convinced that is a good basis for the team on the spirit front and overall I am very happy with the spirit of the players. The win leaves the Gunners sixth, 12 points behind fourth-placed Liverpool , who are in the final Champions League spot.

All three teams - India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh - have one win each to their names after the first round of matches. The last five overs, hence, conceded only 29 runs, and Shardul Thakur reaped rewards of his variations (mostly, knuckle ball) and the good work done by Chahal and Sundar.

The Men in Blue, being led by stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma, however, bounced back strongly to outplay Bangladesh in their next match.
Sri Lanka started off aggressively.
But it was not easy as India witnessed a horrendous start to their chase, losing both the openers - skipper Rohit Sharma (11) and in-form Shikhar Dhawan (8) early.
Having come off two days of complete rest, India hit the nets at the R Premadasa Stadium first thing in the morning yesterday. What seemed to have been a blessing in disguise with Thisara Perera tonking his first two deliveries for sixes, proved otherwise soon after.
Mourinho happy with referee's decision to not send off Klopp
It is the kind of occasion he would love to be a part of, but not necessarily one from which he will learn an enormous amount. Marcus Rashford (left) scores Manchester United's first goal against Liverpool at Old Trafford March 10, 2018.
