View dismissal TM Dilshan run out (Pathan) 0 3 3 0 0 0.00
0.3 from Khan, massive misunderstanding, that's the end of Dilshan, he inside-edged the ball onto his pads and it bounced away towards Yusuf Pathan at square leg, Dilshan set off for the run Jayasuriya wasn't interested but Dilshan wasn't taking no for an answer, Yusuf has time to take a few steps towards the stumps and then throw them down, catches Dilshan about a yard out 0/1

View dismissal MF Maharoof b I Sharma 35 41 27 2 1 129.62
47.2 slower offcutter, Maharoof was going for the big heave over midwicket after getting his front foot out of the way, gets an inside edge and the ball crashes into his stumps 222/6
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* c RG Sharma b I Sharma 11 27 19 0 0 57.89

View dismissal G Gambhir c Kandamby b Muralitharan 62 105 68 5 0 91.17
24.5 timely breakthrough there for Sri Lanka, Gambhir chips down the track tries to launch him over the off side but he checks his shot and Kandamby takes it easily at long-off 126/2
View dismissal SR Tendulkar lbw b Thushara 5 15 16 0 0 31.25
3.4 not the best decision unfortunately but Tendulkar has to go, the ball pitches marginally outside the leg stump and straightens and hits him fairly high on the pad as he tries to work it to the on side, Kumar Dharmasena thinks about it for a while before raising the finger, this is Dharmasena's first decision in ODIs 13/1
View dismissal SK Raina run out (Muralitharan/†Sangakkara/Mendis) 54 100 71 3 1 76.05
27.3 from Mendis, a communication breakdown there, Raina nudges it down to fine leg and charges out for the second run, Yuvraj is interested only in the single but when he turns around his partner is already halfway down the pitch, it's too late for Raina to get back 137/3
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c Muralitharan b Maharoof 23 52 40 2 0 57.50
37.6 Yuvraj gives it a away and a good bowling change by Sri Lanka, he makes room to loft him for six down the ground but the ball travels off the splice of the bat and as a result doesn't get the desired elevation, Murali comes forward from long-on and takes it comfortably 181/4
