View dismissal G Gambhir run out (Tharanga/Kulasekara) 15 30 16 2 0 93.75
6.1 from Kulasekara, Gambhir is run out His luck runs out. Finally. It was clipped past square-leg and Tharanga fires it towards the bowler. Gambhir was very late to start for third run but he tried to complete the run. The throw came to Kula who very calmly broke the stumps. Gone! Gambhir was pretty slow there. Even in the second run, he stopped at the start and jogged across. As if he had settled in his mind for two runs. He then sees DK has turned for the third run and he tries to hustle across. Too late 38/1

View dismissal WU Tharanga b Khan 16 34 30 1 0 53.33
7.6 86.0 mph, Oh boy! what has he done! He shoulders arms to a delivery that cuts back in from outside off to take out the off stump! As they say in gully cricket, a very bad "well left" Not! He has been at the other end and has been watching Zaheer cut the ball in a great deal while bowling to Sanga but he decides to shoulder arms. This one pitched just outside off and tilted in. Clatter! 31/2
View dismissal TM Dilshan c Harbhajan Singh b Kumar 0 3 2 0 0 0.00
0.5 83.5 mph, Dilshan combusts! What a soft hit. It was the short delivery well outside off and Dilshan tried to fetch it with a pull. Limp shot. The ball lobbed gently to mid-on. Huge wicket this. Indians roar. 5/1
View dismissal KC Sangakkara*† c Khan b Nehra 17 71 38 2 0 44.73
