Electing to bat, India made 163-5 with Suresh Raina’s 63. But Sri Lanka needed just 144 to knock India out of the tournament with a better net run rate.
Kumar Sangakkara’s 46 set the chase before a thrilling 56-run partnership between Kapugedera and Angelo Matthews took them closer.
With 30 runs needed off the last two overs, Kapugedera hit Vinay Kumar for consecutive sixes to end the 19th over. It left them needing 13 off the final over.
