View dismissal SC Ganguly c †Sangakkara b Malinga 62 136 79 6 1 78.48
27.1 Ganguly gifts his wicket! Malinga bowls a full and wide ball, Ganguly doesn't move his feet but reaches out for it, the ball bounces just before hitting the bat and Sangakkara takes a simple catch, that's a soft dismissal to end a fine innings 154/4
View dismissal R Dravid* b Maharoof 5 8 9 1 0 55.55
3.2 Maharoof strikes again! short of a length outside off and darting in after pitching, Dravid wasn't expecting that deviation and ended up inside edging it onto the bails, cracker of a delivery to get the Indian captain 29/2
View dismissal SR Tendulkar st †Sangakkara b Bandara 54 94 61 9 0 88.52
23.2 bowled flat and fast outside off stump, Tendulkar came down the pitch, realised that he wasn't to the pitch of the ball and tried to fend it away, he was beaten and Sangakkara whipped off the bails in a trice, huge wicket for Sri Lanka 129/3
View dismissal V Sehwag c †Sangakkara b Bandara 19 16 23 3 0 82.60
29.6 Bandara strikes back! fired in outside off stump, Sehwag attempted another dab, was cramped for room and ended up getting a thickish outside edge 169/5
View dismissal MS Dhoni c Maharoof b Jayasuriya 48 95 68 1 0 70.58
49.5 stunning, simply stunning, Dhoni had room to free his arms and he smashed that high over cover, Maharoof ran back looking over his head, running at full speed, Upul Tharanga was running in from the fence also at full speed, there was danger of a collision but Maharoof didn't lose focus, he kept his eye on the ball and completed an outstanding catch running backwards and tumbling to the ground, one of the best catches you will see under pressure 252/9
View dismissal KD Karthik lbw b Malinga 31 55 49 1 0 63.26
45.4 the yorker gets him! Superb ball to follow the bouncer, it swings back into Karthik who tries to hit it on the leg side, he gets beaten and the ball hits the pad in front of middle and leg, was that missing leg? It looked close enough 235/6
View dismissal Harbhajan Singh c Jayawardene b Maharoof 2 8 7 0 0 28.57
47.3 caught! and what a catch! Harbhajan throws all he has behind a heave that was intended to go down the ground, instead he gets a top edge that swirls high in the region towards third man, Jayawardene runs back and dives to his left to take a high-pressure catch 241/7
View dismissal A Kumble run out (Maharoof/Jayasuriya) 2 11 5 0 0 40.00
49.1 Jayasuriya to Dhoni, Dhoni hammers it down the ground and sets off for two runs, there was never two in it and Kumble was stranded hopelessly when the throw came in from long-on, from India's point of view Dhoni retains the strike 248/8
