View dismissal V Sehwag run out (Muralitharan/Jayasuriya/Thushara) 42 58 26 7 0 161.53
12.2 from Thushara, Run out, Sehwag's gone! no need for the third umpire even, it started with a superb shot from Sehwag, he picks up the ball from offstump and flicked towards wide long-on, the batsmen pushed for three, Murali was the fielder who gave chase from mid-on, relays the ball to Jayasuriya whose accurate throw to the non-striker's end gets rid of Sehwag, that's a huge blow for India 83/3
View dismissal SR Tendulkar lbw b Kulasekara 6 11 9 0 0 66.66
2.4 he gets him lbw this time, similar to the one two balls ago, but it was a shade more to the off this time, no inside edge as he tried to play it towards square leg, but replays suggest the ball might have missed leg 13/1
View dismissal G Gambhir c †Sangakkara b Maharoof 27 31 28 4 0 96.42
9.3 Gone! Maharoof has done the trick, angling across the stumps, very tight line, Gambhir tried to open the face and run it to third man, gets an outside edge and gives a simple catch to the keeper 62/2
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh lbw b Kulasekara 66 100 88 7 1 75.00
33.1 gone!! Now is that out?? No. Short of a good length on middle and off, gets on the back foot to work it away towards square leg, gets a big inside edge onto the pads that the umpire fails to spot. He raises his finger after quite some time and Yuvraj is understandably distraught 180/5
View dismissal SK Raina c Kapugedera b Dilshan 29 74 43 0 1 67.44
31.1 gone! Dilshan strikes! Landed short on the off stump and gets some extra bounce, surprising the batsman, it also stops on him and Raina dabs at it hard off the back foot, the ball hits the high end of the bat and lobs up to short cover where Kapugedara takes a dolly 168/4
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c †Sangakkara b Maharoof 23 55 35 0 0 65.71
44.3 Dhoni walks!! That was bowled outside leg stump and Dhoni tried to glance it down fine, got a faint tickle to the keeper which the umpire failed to spot. Dhoni, though, set off for the pavilion immediately and Brian Jerling gave the nod seeing him go 223/7
View dismissal YK Pathan run out (Kulasekara) 21 33 28 2 0 75.00
41.6 Mendis to Dhoni, run out, pushed wide of cover and Dhoni calls for a quick single, Kulasekara picks up the ball cleanly and fires in an accurate throw at the strikers end, Yusuf stretches hard but is short of his ground as Sangakkara clips off the bails in time 219/6
View dismissal Z Khan c Dilshan b Mendis 17 35 23 0 1 73.91
49.6 Zaheer goes for the big one and for a while it seemed as though he had pulled it off, the cameras lost it for a bit because it was so high up in the air, was certainly not well timed and Dilshan at long-on after waiting ages for it to come down, judged it to perfection 256/9
View dismissal P Kumar c Jayawardene b Mendis 15 22 21 1 0 71.42
49.5 short outside off and Praveen tries to loft that over the deep-cover boundary, mistimes it completely, gets the top edge that's snapped up comfortably by Jayawardene at cover 256/8

View dismissal TM Dilshan c Sharma b Khan 8 13 8 1 0 100.00
2.2 gone!! Banged in short on middle and Dilshan goes for the pull, gets the top edge and Ishant and fine leg makes no mistake. Big wicket as Dilshan has been in good form. Well thought out by Zaheer and Co. 15/1
View dismissal ST Jayasuriya c Ojha b Sharma 17 35 24 1 0 70.83
6.2 slightly wayward but highly effective, short and wide, Jayasuriya tries to cut that over point, gets a thick outside edge that flies away towards Pragyan Ojha at third man who takes a well judged catch. The bowling change works, and SL have some work to do now. 33/2
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c Tendulkar b Kumar 4 28 8 0 0 50.00
7.3 gone! That's an excellent catch! Full outside off and Sangakkara chases it, it was going away with the angle and took the outside edge as he went for the drive. Tendulkar pouched it smartly at slip as Dhoni, who was diving to his left to clasp that, would have blocked his view. Sri Lanka are now in trouble 36/3
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* c Pathan b Ojha 52 117 75 1 1 69.33
34.2 sharp catch at extra cover! Ojha tosses it on middle and leg, Jayawardene makes room and dances down, looking to go inside-out over the circle, but he doesn't get the desired elevation and finds Yusuf at extra cover, who takes a good low catch to snap a 100-run stand 136/4
SHT Kandamby not out 93 195 129 9 0 72.09
View dismissal CK Kapugedera c †Dhoni b Sharma 31 36 29 3 0 106.89
42.2 edged and taken, Kapugedera charges down the track to smash it over the bowler's head, Ishant pitches it full and gets the ball to move away late off the pitch, Kapugedera fails to cover the movement and gets a thin edge to Dhoni 187/5
View dismissal MF Maharoof b Sharma 7 13 6 1 0 116.66
44.1 the yorker consumes him this time, Ishant fires it in middle stump straight on the blockhole, Maharoof makes room but fails to get his bat down and the ball crashes on to his middle stump, Ishant says 'thank you' after getting the wicket after Maharoof's great escape in the previous over 206/6
View dismissal T Thushara c Pathan b Sharma 7 15 8 0 0 87.50
46.4 the slower ball this time and Thushara doesn't read it at all, he shapes to scoop it over the bowler's head but gets into the stroke too early, Yusuf runs across to his right from mid-on and takes an easy catch 228/7
View dismissal M Muralitharan run out (Pathan/Khan) 3 7 5 0 0 60.00
47.6 from Khan, Murali first makes room and places it straight to Yusuf at midwicket who spills the catch, he fires the throw to Zaheer who whips off the bails, Murali didnt take off for the run but Kandamby was already at his end, Murali was caught ball watching and in the end sacrificed his wicket 236/8
View dismissal KMDN Kulasekara run out (†Dhoni) 1 5 4 0 0 25.00
48.6 Sharma to Kandamby, very easy for Dhoni, Kandamby makes room to swing but he misses it completely, Kulasekara takes off for the run but Dhoni under-arms ball onto the stumps and catches him well short of his crease 237/9
View dismissal BAW Mendis run out (Pathan/†Dhoni) 0 3 0 0 0 -
49.2 Kumar to Kandamby, lofts the ball just in front of long-off, the throw is fired to Dhoni and this time he hits the stumps firmly enough to dislodge both the bails, there's no need for the third umpire as Mendis is well short of his ground 241/10
