Worse followed for Sri Lanka when Dhawan was dropped at first slip by Mathews off Nuwan Kulasekara and then put down by wicketkeeper Sangakkara, standing up, off the same bowler.

Dhawan cashed in by hitting a 73-ball half-century, before he was dropped by Sachitra Sennayake, substitute for Dilshan, at point again off Kulasekara.
