View dismissal ST Jayasuriya run out (Patel) 0 14 3 0 0 0.00
2.3 Patel to Sangakkara, overpitched and umpire Parker doesn't need a second opinion as his finger rises to give out Jayasuriya at the non-striker's end who can't get back in time as Sangakkara's straight drive is fingertipped on by Munaf who was trying to stop the runs rather than anything 6/2

View dismissal G Gambhir c †Sangakkara b Amerasinghe 15 58 34 2 0 44.11
11.4 down leg, a big appeal for a strangle through to Sangakkara and Umpire Hill waits, considers, and finally raises the finger 35/3
View dismissal SR Tendulkar b Malinga 0 6 2 0 0 0.00
1.1 scorching outswinger at 144.3kph and Tendulkar goes for a duck, squared up and knocked back the top of off 2/1
View dismissal RV Uthappa run out (Jayasuriya) 10 42 28 0 0 35.71

View dismissal RG Sharma c Silva b Muralitharan 24 74 36 1 0 66.66
23.2 outside off swept up hard to deep midwicket and though he hit that hard and flat it was straight to Silva and a delighted Murali claps his hands 99/4

View dismissal IK Pathan b Amerasinghe 31 62 41 4 0 75.60
45.3 swung across the line there as Amerasinghe came round the wicket and that was an unnecessary shot, the ball pitching on a good length then travelling on to knock back off stump 216/6
View dismissal P Kumar c Jayawardene b Amerasinghe 6 13 8 0 0 75.00
47.4 outside off, and a well-bowled short ball gets the wicket, the batsman going to hook and the ball's on to him before he's fully played the shot and the top edge goes up and sinks into Jayawardene's hands at first slip 229/7
View dismissal Harbhajan Singh lbw b Malinga 3 8 6 0 0 50.00
48.4 not much wrong with that one! Malinga spears in his favourite inswinging yorker and raps him low and in the middle, Harbhajan is on his way 236/8
