For a side that were whitewashed 5-0 at home just a few months ago, Sri Lanka led by Thisara Perera started off the first ODI against India in Dharamsala as a confident unit. After winning a crucial toss, the visitors decided to bowl first with the track providing bounce and swing to seamers with the new ball. On being asked whether he would have also selected to bowl first, India captain Rohit Sharma described it as a "good toss to lose".

Full scorecard

Five minutes into the bat, Perera's decision was justified as Sri Lanka rattled India's strong batting line-up. Apart from the fact that India kept losing quick wickets in succession early in the match, the horrible start made the home side register some unwanted records with the bat.

* India lose 2nd wicket with 4 runs on board

It is only the second time India have lost two wickets without getting 10 runs on board against Sri Lanka at an ODI at home. The last time it happened, India were left 4/2 at Mumbai in 1997.

* 18-ball duck for Dinesh Karthik

Dinesh Karthik had a terrible return to cricket as he faced 18 deliveries without scoring a single run. It is the most number of deliveries played by an Indian batsman for scoring no run in ODIs. The record was previously held by Eknath Solkar who got out on duck after playing 17 balls against England at The Oval in 1974.
