Riding on Rohit Sharma's 118 run knock India posted a target of 260 runs for the Lankans to chase in 20 overs.

But he braved the pain and took on the Lankan former skipper and in the next ball dispatched Mathews over square leg with a crunching pull and completed his second T20 half- century in 34 balls.

His explosive 165-run opening stand with Lokesh Rahul, who made 89, took the steam out of the Sri Lankan attack.

Dhoni came in at four to a rousing reception by a capacity crowd of 43,000 and he did not disappoint as India added 66 runs in the last five overs without losing a wicket. He got his first 50 in 23 balls, and second in just 12. Sharma smashed 12 fours and 10 sixes after India were put into bat.

The elegant opening batsman took just 35 balls to reach three figures for the second time in the shortest format at worldwide level, matching a record set by South Africa's David Miller against Bangladesh in October.

5- Rohit became the fifth player after Chris Gayle, Evin Lewis, Colin Munro and Brendon McCullum to score two T20I centuries. Hardik Pandya played an explosive cameo hitting a six and a four before getting out on the third delivery he faced at 10 runs.

Nuwan Pradeep and Thisara Perera bagged two wickets each while Dushmantha Chameera managed to get one wicket.

The home side's total was the equal second highest score in T20 internationals, three short of Australia's record of 263-3 against Sri Lanka past year.
