From 109/1 to 131/7 to 231/7 to win the second ODI by three wickets.
It was a genuine roller coaster ride for India as MS Dhoni (45*) and Bhuvneshwar Kumar (53*) stitched a 100-run partnership for the eight wicket to accomplish a tricky chase after Akila Dananjaya rocked them with a six-wicket haul.
It was memorable victory for Virat Kohli and his side and Indian cricket fans took to Twitter to celebrate the victory.
Congratulations India. A special spell from Dananjaya but great nerves from Dhoni.Bhuvi’s spirit was a delight to watch. Well done !#INDvSL— Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) August 24, 2017
This is a half century of the very highest class from Bhuvaneshwar Kumar. Calm and controlled.— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) August 24, 2017

In last one year this is the first time India have had a successful run-chase without Kohli scoring 50+. #SLvIND— Bharath Seervi (@SeerviBharath) August 24, 2017
