42.3 caught! and well caught! The length was short on leg stump, terrible ball really, Dilshan swiveled and pulled the ball hard and flat towards fine leg, RP was on the boundary and he timed his jump perfectly to take the catch, he took one look to see where he had landed after completing the catch but he was inside the boundary 245/5

49.5 from Pathan, Thushara's run out! He cut the ball hard towards third man where Gambhir fumbled the take, Thushara wanted the strike and hared back for the second, the throw came back to Dhoni who had to stretch to break the stumps because he was rather far away from them, Thushara was inches short even though he dived, did Dhoni break the stumps with the ball in his glove? It's too close to call 307/8
