India v Sri Lanka

No result

14.3

Malinga to Tendulkar, OUT, gone this time, Tendulkar goes to cover drive one outside off but drags it back firmly onto his stumps which crunch hard. Malinga immediately celebrates, putting out both arms and roaring

SR Tendulkar b Malinga 35 (70m 52b 2x4 0x6) SR: 67.30

India 68/1   V Sehwag 31* (35b 2x4 1x6)   SL Malinga 5.3-0-15-1

Amerasinghe to Sehwag, OUT, short ball down leg and Sri Lanka strike again, Sehwag swivelling round a pull and pushing the ball into Sangakkara's hands, the keeper diving well low to his left to take a two-handed catch

V Sehwag c †Sangakkara b Amerasinghe 33 (87m 39b 2x4 1x6) SR: 84.61

India 80/2   G Gambhir 10* (12b 2x4)   MKDI Amerasinghe 4.1-0-16-1

Muralitharan to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, Murali gets the breakthrough! Flighted up beautifully, Yuvraj tempted to flash hard outside off but only connects through the edge which comes hard to Jayawardene at first slip who makes no mistake

Yuvraj Singh c Jayawardene b Muralitharan 2 (14m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 18.18

India 83/3   G Gambhir 11* (21b 2x4)   M Muralitharan 0.3-0-0-1

20.5

Muralitharan to RG Sharma, OUT, another excellent delivery from Murali, tempting the batsman forward and he plays down the wrong line as the ball bounces away from him, taking an edge. Sangakkara pouches and is almost celebrating before the decision comes. No third umpire is called for and he's on his way, but could be in trouble later as he stood there for a while, unhappy with the call

RG Sharma c †Sangakkara b Muralitharan 0 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 83/4   G Gambhir 11* (21b 2x4)   M Muralitharan 0.5-0-0-2
