Lakmal to Tendulkar, OUT, oh well, Sachin has succumbed to the high full toss, the second one that Lakmal has bowled, he has pushed it low to short extra cover, who has immediately claimed the catch, Mahela it is, the ball looked close to have been waist-high, but then it dipped on Sachin and was well within limits as he played the stroke, does not seem to be any issue with the catch as well, Mahela pouched it low with both hands, Sachin has to walk back after the third umpire rules out all possibilities that could have extended his stay

Maharoof to Gambhir, OUT, Gautam has launched another one in the direction of long on, there is no Chandimal there this time, there is Tharanga, and he takes an excellent catch in the end, tumbling forward to his left, Gautam had made up his mind to go for it after his ton, he set himself up to swing this full one over midwicket, got nowhere close to timing it
