View dismissal R Dravid c Dilshan b Jayasuriya 39 80 56 2 1 69.64
17.2 Jayasuriya strikes. He slowed up the pace on this one, floated it outside off, making Dravid stretch across to reach for it. Dravid ended up lunging and chips it straight to short extra cover. Clever little change of pace from Jayasuriya. Dravid is angry with himself; bangs his bat against his pad as he walks away ... 95/1
View dismissal SR Tendulkar lbw b Mendis 138 214 133 10 1 103.75
45.6 goes for another reverse sweep, misses and this time it's the off break that traps him right in front. What an innings though. Absolute masterclass on risk-free cricket. 276/3
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c Kandamby b Malinga 56 82 62 3 0 90.32
36.3 is late into the pull shot, this short delivery climbs into him and cramps him fast, the top edge lobs to midwicket - good hand played by Dhoni 205/2
Yuvraj Singh not out 56 75 41 6 1 136.58
View dismissal YK Pathan c Kapugedera b Thushara 0 5 1 0 0 0.00
46.4 He is gone! He backed away, Thushara fired it almost yorker length outside off and Yusuf reached out and ended up slicing it straight to backward point. Yusuf stays there as he thinks he hit straight to the ground. Replays show that the ball went straight up in the air after making contact with the bat .. the bat hit the ground .... Gone! The third umpire conveys his decision to Doctrove who says Yusuf you got to go 277/4
View dismissal SK Raina c Kulasekara b Thushara 8 11 6 1 0 133.33
48.3 Raina holes out to long-off. He went for the big hit and gained more elevation than distance. It went really high and Kula did well to stay under it and take it 302/5

View dismissal TM Dilshan b Harbhajan Singh 42 38 29 9 0 144.82
7.5 Harbhajan roars and he is mobbed by his team-mates. With a scrambled seam, he landed it on a length on the middle and off and it skidded on to the middle. Dilshan misread the length, went back to cut and in the end, tried to stab it away to the off side but misses. Timber! What a fun start he has given to the chase, though. A huge wicket for India. Drama continues in Lanka. Dhoni was ecstatic there. He roared and roared. 64/1
View dismissal ST Jayasuriya c Nehra b Pathan 36 55 29 7 0 124.13
10.6 The big man is gone. The off spinners are doing it for India. In style. Jayasuriya tries to swing the flighted delivery from outside off to the leg side but is beaten in flight and top-edges it to mid-on. It triggers off the Indian celebration routine: Scream in joy 85/3
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene c & b Harbhajan Singh 1 10 5 0 0 20.00
9.4 Harbhajan has struck again! What a gem of a spell this is turning out to be. Again scrambled seam, applies some over spin on the doosra on the off stump line, Mahela is lured into a waft to the on side and gets a leading edge back down the pitch. Harbhajan screams in delight; his team-mates too clear their throats. 76/2
View dismissal KC Sangakkara*† hit wicket b Singh 33 76 37 0 0 89.18
27.3 OMG! What a bizzare way to get out. Oh dear. It''s a low full toss, below waist-high, Sangakkara has a jab at it and here is where the trouble starts. The bat slips out of his sweaty gloved hands and flips in the air back over his shoulder and falls on the stumps. What a way to go. Sanga looks stunned. Shocked. He was looking to really fight it out there but the captain has to go. Raina tackles RP in celebration and both go down to the ground laughing. For what it's worth, the ball rolled towards mid-on after impact with the bat. 182/6
View dismissal T Thushara b Sharma 15 19 14 3 0 107.14
14.3 Ishant, who leaked runs with the newer ball, tastes his first success. It landed back of length on the middle and leg and straightened to go past the attempted across-the-line slog and crash into the middle stump. Four down and wobbling. 108/4
View dismissal AD Mathews c Raina b Yuvraj Singh 14 14 11 1 1 127.27
17.3 Yuvraj, the man with the golden arm, strikes. It was flighted outside off stump, on a length, stops a touch on Angelo who chips it on the up and straight to Raina at extra cover. Sangakkara stands alone 131/5
View dismissal SHT Kandamby b Harbhajan Singh 66 117 94 4 0 70.21
44.3 Harbhajan has done it again. He was the man who took the first two wickets and he is the man who turns the game again for India now. Kandamby moved well outside leg stump and went for the cut but missed it completely. Clatter! What a wonderful innings under pressure but he has given it away in the end. 66 valuable runs but he is gone now. Advantage India. 264/8
View dismissal CK Kapugedera c †Dhoni b Raina 35 68 42 3 0 83.33
42.3 Huge strike by Raina. It was the quicker one, skidding outside off, Kapugedera tried to dab it late behind the wicket but edged it. It popped out of Dhoni's gloves but he caught it on the rebound. Big wicket. A fine innings from Kapu comes to an end. 68 from 45 balls needed now. This fascinating game continues to see-saw 252/7

View dismissal SL Malinga c & b Harbhajan Singh 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
44.4 Double jeopardy! Done in by the doosra. Just like the Mahela dismissal. Malinga tried to turn it to the leg side for a single but all he does get is a leading edge ... a dolly back to Harbhajan. 264/9
View dismissal BAW Mendis st †Dhoni b Harbhajan Singh 7 10 10 0 0 70.00
46.4 Fittingly, Harbhajan hammers in the final nail. A tossed up doosra, from round the stumps, lures Mendis out of the crease, turns past the swing of the bat and Dhoni does the rest. Harbhajan bags a five-for. What a game he has had. He took out Dilshan and Mahela at the top, returned at the pressure time to deliver the knock-out punch. The Indians get into a celebratory huddle. 273/10
