View dismissal TM Dilshan run out (RG Sharma) 97 164 117 9 0 82.90
41.3 I Sharma to Jayawardene, that's a double strike and Dilshan misses a well-deserved century, Jayawardene softly taps it towards Rohit at cover point and there's confusion about the single, Dilshan turns back but there's a direct hit by Rohit and he's way short of his ground 255/4
View dismissal ST Jayasuriya c Raina b IK Pathan 37 48 35 7 0 105.71
10.1 that's a poor shot, he steps down the track and Irfan digs it short on seeing him advance, Jayasuriya gets a top edge and Raina takes it at mid-off, very tame dismissal that 66/1
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c RG Sharma b Yuvraj Singh 84 80 70 8 1 120.00
32.5 Sangakkara attempts another slog over the on side but he fails to get under this one, this one is slower through the air and Sangakkara slogs a little too early, Rohit runs from long-off and takes the catch sliding forward 209/2
View dismissal SHT Kandamby b I Sharma 26 32 26 3 0 100.00
41.2 comes over the wicket, Ishant lands it bang on middle and the ball straightens, Kandamby's beaten for pace and the ball clips the top of middle stump, not sure if Kandamby actually picked it off the pitch as he was totally squared up 255/3
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* c Raina b Yuvraj Singh 1 7 4 0 0 25.00
42.1 another one bites the dust, Yuvraj flights it on the off stump ever so slowly, Jayawardene tamely chips it towards Raina at short cover who dives and takes the catch 256/6
View dismissal CK Kapugedera c †Dhoni b I Sharma 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
41.6 India are hitting back here, Ishant lands it on the corridor outside off and tempts Kapugedera in to poking at it, there's a thin edge to Dhoni and Kapugedera walks back for a first-ball duck 256/5
View dismissal MF Maharoof run out (Jadeja/†Dhoni) 32 38 23 3 1 139.13
49.3 from I Sharma, he goes for an across the line swipe and mistimes it to deep square leg, Jadeja is very impressive as he runs across and fires the throw to Dhoni who whips off the bails, the third umpire takes a look 315/8
View dismissal T Thushara c & b I Sharma 11 15 12 1 0 91.66
45.5 Ishant bowls the slower ball, Thushara stands outside his crease but fails to get under the low full toss properly and ends up chipping it tamely back to the bowler, there was no reaction at all from Ishant after taking the catch, it wouldn't have occured to most people that it was actually a catch 277/7

2.2 Kulasekara strikes and the Sri Lankans deserve credit for setting it up, Raina prods forward to a delivery which shapes away, he gets a fairly thick edge and Sangakkara, who's up to the stumps, takes it easily, the plan was to put Raina under pressure with the keeper up to the stumps and it has paid off 9/2
