Herath to continue. It's a good time for Yuvraj to bat. He can take some time to set his eyes, before going for big hits. Yuvraj came down the track to hit the spinner for a six. In the next ball, he again launched the bowler for a maximum. 15 runs from the over.
Over 12 || Score 77/3 (Yuvraj 5, Kohli 31)
Shanaka picked up a wicket off his first ball. In trying to clear mid-off Raina gave a simple catch to Kulasekara. Yuvraj Singh joined Kohli in the middle. Yuvraj opened his account with a boundary towards backward point. Seven from the over.

Despite injuries, India have the edge against the island nation, whom they beat 2-1 in a recent home series. The reason being a possible injury to Lankan captain and primary strike bowler Lasith Malinga, whose knee problem has again flared up and has put his further participation in the tournament in doubt.
More than the challenge posed by defending World T20 champions, the Indian team will like to set their house in order as far injuries are concerned.
For Sri Lanka, which has been hit hard by the retirements of legends, the injury to skipper Malinga comes as a big blow -- more so after their 23-run loss at the hands of Bangladesh, which has seriously jeopardised their chances of qualifying for the final.
