COLOMBO: Left-handed batsman Shikhar Dhawan struck a magnificent 90 which led India to a strong total of 174 for 5 in 20 overs and set Sri Lanka a target of 175 runs to win at the R Premadasa Stadium here on Tuesday.

Earlier, Sri Lanka won the toss and inserted India to bat first.

The Men in Blue were off to a poor start when stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma continued his dismal form with the bat as he was dismissed for a nought.

Suresh Raina was cleaned bowled by Lankan pacer Nuwan Pradeep for 1 to leave India reeling at 9 for 2 after two overs.

Manish Pandey and Dhawan then steadied the innings and shared a vital 94-run partnership. Both of them, especially Dhawan, played extravagant shots and put the Sri Lankan pacers under pressure.

Dhawan missed out on a well-deserved hundred when he mistimed a shot off a wide delivery bowled by spinner Danushka Gunathilaka.

Ultimately, Rishabh Pant and wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik then ensured no further hiccups in the innings and guided India to a respectable total of 174 towards the end of the innings.

For Sri Lanka, Dushmantha Chameera took 2 for 33, while Pradeep, Gunathilaka and leg-spinner Jeevan Mendis took a wicket apiece.
