Having been put in to bat first, West Indies struggled to put bat on ball on a slow pitch. However, their innings was bolstered by Dwayne Smith who came out all guns blazing with his 43-ball 72. Chris Gayle looked scratchy at the other end, playing his slowest T20I innings, but he hung on long enough till the two accounted for a 97-run 1st wicket stand.

The Windies were awful to start with, after MS Dhoni won his second successive toss and elected to bowl. Dwayne Smith looked clueless against some top-notch outswingers from Bhuvneshwar Kumar before succumbing to spin, while Mohammad Shami kept things tight at the other end. Chris Gayle was run-out after playing his slowest possible T20 knock, (34 off 33 balls) and despite being dropped twice in his innings, failed to take advantage. The spinners were once again at the forefront, particularly Amit Mishra, whose leg spin rewarded him with yet another noteworthy performance.

MS Dhoni returned, winning the toss and putting Sri Lanka into bat first. Varun Aaron (1/18) picked up opener Kusal Perera (21) early, but Mahela Jayawardena (30) provided some momentum before Amit Mishra held on to a return catch to get rid of him. TM Dilshan (9) followed, along with Kumar Sangakkara (4) and Sri Lanka were 77/4 in the 12th over. However, captain Dinesh Chandimal's 25-ball 29 gave the Islanders a boost, which was then carried by the tail-enders. Sri Lanka put up a total of 153/6 in 20 overs. R Ashwin finished with impressive figures of 3/22.
