View dismissal NT Paranavitana c Dravid b Harbhajan Singh 53 94 81 7 0 65.43
19.5 Harbhajan has struck. He has been bowling really well and has got the breakthrough. Paranavitana, who was looking so good, is gone. It was a loopy flighted delivery around the off stump and Paranavitana edged his attempted cover drive to first slip. Done by the dip. 93/1
View dismissal TM Dilshan c Vijay b Harbhajan Singh 109 278 160 10 2 68.12
64.6 Dilshan is not too happy. Given out caught at short-leg. Oh dear oh dear .. what a poor decision by Llong. It turned in and Dilshan stretched forward to defend. The ball was long away from the gloves or the bat and bounded straight off the pad. Oh what a crucial moment this. He played so well so far. But he has to go now. 262/5
View dismissal KC Sangakkara* c †Dhoni b Ojha 18 35 35 2 0 51.42
30.5 And he has been strangled down the leg side. What a way to go. This one was turning down leg side, going past his hips when Sanga tried to glance but got a faint tickle through to a delighted Dhoni, who takes a neat catch 128/2
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene c Sehwag b Sreesanth 29 67 63 4 0 46.03
47.4 Done in by the bouncer. Yuvraj hugs Sreesanth. It was the short-pitched delivery, Mahela swivels to pull but top edges it straight to deep backward square-leg. Just reward for a fine spell. 187/3
View dismissal TT Samaraweera c Vijay b Harbhajan Singh 1 5 2 0 0 50.00
48.1 Samaraweera walks after edging. Almost Ponting like dismissal, if you know what I mean. It was flighted outside off on a length, Samaraweera lunged forward to defend and got a bat and pad to short leg. Double strike and India are back in the game. Much depends on Dilshan who has played a fab knock so far. He has to carry on for a really big innings 188/4
View dismissal AD Mathews run out (Tendulkar/†Dhoni) 99 200 131 15 0 75.57
92.4 from Sreesanth, Oh what has he done... got himself run out going for the second run. he had pulled a bouncer to deep square-leg and turned for the risky second. Tendulkar with the throw .. comes on top of the stumps and Dhoni breaks the stumps with Angelo just outside the crease ..It was referred upstairs.and the verdict is OUT. Well played sir but what a way to go when you are near your debut ton.. Close but no cigar. 379/9

39.1 Trapped in front. He is livid with himself for his shot selection. It was the full delivery, the carrom-ball on the middle stump line, really full and Vijay went for the sweep; too full to sweep and he missed it completely. Dead duck. But what a fine innings it has been from him. Very easy on the eye. Sehwag pats him on the helmet as he walks past. 221/1
View dismissal V Sehwag c & b Muralitharan 293 366 254 40 7 115.35
82.2 The goggle-eyed Murali smiles. It has taken a long time in coming and what a wicket to take. Virender Sehwag falls after a scintillating innings that will be remembered for a long time. It was a lovely loopy delivery, from round the stumps, dipping in front of Sehwag who reaches out and ends up scooping it straight back to Murali. Murali doesn't take it cleanly, the ball pops out, but he holds his nerves to collect it on the rebound. A champion entertainer walks back to a standing ovation. 458/2

89.6 Ah! That ploy works. Dravid loses patience and goes after a full delivery well outside off .., memories of how Mitchell Johnson took him out during Australia's tour of India. Another fine solid knock from Rahul. An immensely better morning for Sri Lanka. 487/3

114.2 The off cutter does the trick. It moved in from a length, from outside off stump, Tendulkar went for the on-the-up drive but the ball collided with the inner edge and it sneaked in through the bat and pad gap to clip the off stump. Clatter! Kulasekara is delighted. 558/4

122.4 Murali strikes. Done in the flight. Laxman rushed down the track and went for the lofted shot over wide midwicket but ended up slicing it off the outer edge behind the bowler. Mid-on moved to his left to collect that. 591/5

45.3 plumb in front. Lovely delivery from Sreesanth. It landed on a length on the middle and off line, shaped in late, Paranavitana was in a tangle with his front-foot movement, had pressed it too far across, tries to remove it from the line and get the bat around but too late. Thud. Gone. Fighting innnings comes to an end. 119/2
View dismissal TM Dilshan lbw b Harbhajan Singh 16 33 27 2 0 59.25
8.5 Oh dear ... Harper has given it lbw. Dilshan didn't offer a shot again and took it on the pad and it did look risky but the ball was missing the stumps. It landed on a length around the off stump, hit him high and it was spinning, and as Hawk eye shows it was easily missing the leg stump. He had done it (padded-up) twice in the last over of Harbhajan but this time it has proved fatal. Two bad decisions for him in this game. But why why would such a wonderful strokeplayer keep padding up. Oh dear, he is gone now and Sri Lanka's task has become tougher. 29/1

53.4 First Sreesanth, now Zaheer. The seamers have pushed India ahead in style. This one landed on a length around off and tailed away, Mahela, who can be a bit iffy around his off-stump when he is new to the crease, pushes out at it. Edge and gone. India on the ascent. Sangakkara stands alone. 135/3

57.6 Done in by the lifting delivery and a very fine catch from Lax at second slip. It was banged in short from round the stumps, coming in from just outside off stump, a surprised Samaraweera stabbed it low to the left of Laxman who swoops down to take a sharp chance. The camera zooms to a grim Sangakkara who stares down the pitch. 137/4
