View dismissal ST Jayasuriya c Ojha b Khan 1 8 8 0 0 12.50
1.4 caught! Zaheer strikes in his first over! the ball isn't the best, it is on the shorter side and there's width outside off stump as well, Jayasuriya takes a step forward and slashes hard at the ball, he is looking to hit the ball over point but the movement away from the left-hander results in a top-edge that flies high and straight towards Ojha at third man, he takes a well-judged catch 1/1
View dismissal SM Warnapura c Gambhir b Pathan 30 84 44 4 0 68.18
17.2 caught! Warnapura charges Pathan, who pitches short of a length outside off stump, he tries to pull the ball from outside off towards the leg side and gets a top edge which goes high in the air towards cover, Gambhir runs back from cover and takes a well judged catch over his head 78/2
View dismissal ML Udawatte lbw b Pathan 43 79 55 6 0 78.18
17.5 lbw! Double-strike from Pathan, he pitches the ball on a good length and skids it towards middle stump, Udawatte stays in his crease and moves across his stumps to play the ball on the leg side, he misses and the ball hits him on the pad in front of middle, that is plumb 80/3
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c Gambhir b Singh 1 9 5 0 0 20.00
18.4 caught! Sri Lanka look like their in quicksand here, the ball is short of a length and wide outside off stump, nothing special about it, Sangakkara moves forward and reaches out to hit the ball through point but plays far away from his body, he gets a thick edge that's snapped up by Gambhir at first slip 82/4
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* c Yuvraj Singh b Ojha 12 44 25 0 0 48.00
28.1 brilliant bowling, and a well-deserved wicket for Ojha! He tosses the ball up and drifts it into off and middle stump, the length draws Jayawardene forward, the ball dips on the right-hander and turns away from the bat as Jayawardene tries to play the ball through cover, he ends up lobbing it tamely towards cover where Yuvraj takes the easiest of catches 104/5
View dismissal CK Kapugedera c Singh b Ojha 26 67 63 1 0 41.26
36.6 caught! Kapugedera lofts the ball inside out but he's hit it high in the air which gives RP Singh enough time to run to his left from long-off and take a well-judged catch, he ran extremely close to the boundary but was in complete control of his movements 133/6

View dismissal V Kohli lbw b Kulasekara 31 45 46 3 1 67.39
10.3 he's finally got the lbw! Kulasekara has repeatedly hit Kohli on the pad as he moves across his stumps to the ball that cuts into the right-hander, the impact has been high on previous occasions, but this time the ball hits him on the knee roll and the umpire raises the finger 45/2
View dismissal G Gambhir c †Sangakkara b Kulasekara 11 37 16 2 0 68.75
8.5 caught! Sangakkara's move pays off immediately! Gambhir sees the ball angling across him and tries to steer it towards third man, he plays away from his body and gets a thick edge and Sangakkara anticipates it beautifully and takes the catch to his left, he gives Gambhir a send-off as well, probably because of the nick earlier in the innings 38/1
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh b Mendis 17 46 23 2 0 73.91
18.1 bowled him! Mendis has gone Yuvraj first ball! He's tormented him in this series! It was the ball that went straight on across the left-hander, yuvraj stayed in his crease and tried to push the ball on the off side, the ball hit the inside edge and then went on to the stumps, it may have hit the pad as well 79/5
View dismissal SK Raina c Fernando b Kulasekara 10 17 13 2 0 76.92
14.2 caught! Raina's holed out! The length wasn't short enough to pull but Raina tried to smash it over midwicket, he got a top edge which went high in the air towards mid-off where Fernando settled under the catch, rather mindless shot that was 70/3
View dismissal RG Sharma lbw b Kulasekara 3 11 5 0 0 60.00
16.3 lbw! But that was a poor decision, Kulasekara pitched the ball outsid eoff stump and cut the ball into the right-hander, Sharma thrust his front pad outside the line of off stump while defending and got hit on the pad, Kulasekara appealed and umpire Tyron raised the finger in a flash, the impact however was outside the line of off stump 76/4
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† b Fernando 1 17 7 0 0 14.28
19.3 bowled him! That's the end of Dhoni! They are dancing in the stands! Fernando bowled one full and fast, swinging into the right-hander, Dhoni hardly moved his feet as he tried to play across the line, the ball slipped through the gap between bat and pad and crashed into the stumps 85/6
View dismissal IK Pathan c Warnapura b Mendis 7 21 15 1 0 46.66
22.1 caught! Mendis tossed the ball up around off stump and turned the offbreak away from Pathan who tried to drive on the front foot, he gets an outside edge towards second slip where Warnapura took the catch, that turned a long way 90/7
View dismissal Z Khan lbw b Mendis 3 21 10 0 0 30.00
24.2 that's plumb, absolutely plumb! That's the straight one from Mendis, it pitches on off and heads towards middle, Zaheer pushes forward in defence and gets hit on the pad in front of middle, no doubt there 91/8
View dismissal RP Singh c Jayawardene b Fernando 4 14 13 0 0 30.76
25.4 caught! That's no 9! Full ball outside off stump, RP slashes at it and edges the catch to second slip, Jayawardene catches it at head height, that ball traveled to him quickly 95/9
