6.1

Kulasekara to Gambhir, 2 runs, OUT, 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

G Gambhir run out 15 (30m 16b 2x4 0x6) SR: 93.75

Kandamby to Karthik, OUT, Gentle full toss. Big swing of the bat. Out! Oh he has messed up there! It was a lollypop thrown around the leg stump line and Karthik went for the slog sweep and top edged it to deep square-leg. Good innings but it's over now.

Malinga to Raina, OUT, Lasith Malinga take a bow. What a ball! He was firing bounces so far. And then slips in the yorker. The oldest two-card trick. Raina was on the hop and he couldn't get his bat in line of the delivery. Dead duck.
