View dismissal G Gambhir c Randiv b Mathews 23 52 31 3 0 74.19
11.2 77.0 mph, Suraj Randiv take a bow! Catch of the tournament! He did this once before, diving to his right to save a boundary, but this time he's stopped Gambhir's innings. That was short and asking for punishment, Gambhir obliged by opening up his stance and whack-pulling it with ferocity well to the right of Randiv at short midwicket... but in the air. Randiv dived across full length and itercepted it mid-air, fully horizontal to pluck it one-handed. Classy. 58/1
View dismissal KD Karthik c †Sangakkara b Herath 40 71 43 6 0 93.02
15.2 51.3 mph, whoa! Billy Bowden sets a record for a late decision, that would have made Steve Bucknor proud! Superb bowling from Herath, spin and bounce from middle, ripping across Karthik. Did it take the edge on the way to Sangakkara? Sri Lanka thought so, and around 10 seconds later, so did Billy who raised the crooked finger. Karthik goes in the 40s again. 77/3
View dismissal V Kohli c †Sangakkara b Maharoof 10 13 14 1 0 71.42
14.3 82.9 mph, he's a goner this time! Maharoof keeps it outside off, moved away ever so slightly from off stump and it was enough to fox Kohli, and get the edge as he prodded unconvincingly off the back foot. Sangakkara leaps in joy after pouching it, and that's another failure for Kohli in the Asia Cup. 75/2
View dismissal RG Sharma run out (†Sangakkara/Jayawardene) 69 118 73 7 0 94.52
42.3 from Welegedara, all over. Rohit is run out trying to keep strike. Full and wide outside off, but this time he does not middle the lofted square drive.. It dribbles down to third man, and Rohit runs back desperate to keep strike. Razor-sharp throw from Mahela, I reckon - Sanga had little to do, as Rohit jumped inside in an attempt to make his crease.. but the bails were already off. India have collapsed in bizarre fashion here. 209/10
View dismissal SK Raina lbw b Herath 18 24 23 0 1 78.26
22.3 51.1 mph, whoa! A tight call there but the right one and Raina has to go! That was speared in from wide of the crease, from round the wicket, Raina goes for the sweep and misses as it straightens. Hits him in front of middle and off. Umpire Oxenford rules it out after thinking hard and long. Big wicket - pitched on leg and would have hit the top of middle. 110/4
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† run out (Kapugedera) 41 59 53 6 0 77.35
37.6 from Herath, wicket against the run of play, and a huge one! Dhoni is run out. Tapped with soft hands straight to point, and Rohit calls Dhoni across for a tight single.. he hares down to the non-striker's end but is beaten easily by Kapugedera, swooping in from point and letting rip an arrow-throw to the non-striker's end. 189/5
View dismissal RA Jadeja lbw b Maharoof 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
38.1 82.9 mph, and he's gone first ball, playing all around a straight ball like a deer caught in the headlights! Jadeja walked across to the off stump for some reason and missed a ball headed for middle stump. India have lost two in two. 189/6
View dismissal P Kumar b Maharoof 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
38.2 82.2 mph, Team hat-trick! Maharoof has gone past Praveen Kumar first ball, as he looked to play a nothing-shot to a ball not too short and far too close to off stump. The inside edge falls on the stumps and Maharoof is now on a hat-trick all of his own! 189/7
View dismissal Z Khan c †Sangakkara b Maharoof 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
38.3 86.1 mph, AND HE'S DONE IT! Rangiri Dambulla comes alive, as Zaheer Khan outside edges a ball that was doing nothing special, except that it was pitched on off.. Zaheer got forward and poked without much conviction and the outside edge flew wide of Sangakkara, who dives to his right and plucked it.. Four in four for SL.. Maharoof who made an unexpected comeback for the Asia Cup is the man of the moment. 189/8
View dismissal AB Dinda b Maharoof 2 12 12 0 0 16.66
40.6 84.0 mph, and Maharoof has another one! Superb yorker, tailing in on leg stump and Dinda plays a questionable swipe off the back foot instead of guarding his castle.. He misses, Maharoof hits and India are nine down! Maharoof has a five-for! 195/9

View dismissal WU Tharanga c †Dhoni b Khan 38 57 46 6 0 82.60
13.5 82.9 mph, Zaheer roars having finally got rid of Tharanga after having troubled him for a while. Short of a length outside off, nothing special about that ball, but that's like saying there was nothing special about Glenn McGrath. Tharanga again pokes uncertainly, and inevitably he's edged one. Dhoni does the rest. 80/2
View dismissal TM Dilshan c Jadeja b Khan 24 21 16 4 1 150.00
5.3 85.5 mph, India strike with some smart field placement! Short ball, challenges Dilshan to spull and he obliges, but can't keep it along the ground and it carries straight to deep midwicket. Against the run of play, India have struck. 38/1
View dismissal KC Sangakkara*† c Khan b Kumar 73 102 82 10 0 89.02
31.6 well, he's had enough of hanging around so just out of frustration sashays down the track and goes through with the drive despite not getting to the pitch. It loops to mid on where Zaheer tumbles to the right to take the catch. Sanga's gone after playing a fine innings ahead of the finals 184/3
