View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* c Sehwag b Jadeja 22 50 33 1 1 66.66
11.6 56.6 mph, Mahela's gifted his wicket. Trying to be too cheeky. Did he not know that there was a man at slip? He leans back and looks to play the late cut and steers it straight at Sehwag's face. Sehwag puts his hands up, parries it up and holds well. Did he whisper, "Did you see my catch?" as he trotted in with his captain to celebrate with Jadeja? Wicket against the run of play. 49/1

View dismissal KC Sangakkara b Kumar 105 119 87 8 2 120.68
43.2 81.2 mph, India surprise themselves with a wicket. PK slips a slow yorker past Sanga's swipe to leg and it disturbs on the stumps. Sanga's found top form ahead of Sri Lanka's last league game, and most likely, the finals. 249/2
View dismissal NLTC Perera run out (Kumar/Tendulkar) 3 13 3 0 0 100.00
45.3 Kumar to Dilshan, a third wicket now, once again gifted. Thisara was trying to get a second run that was virtually impossible. Dilshan played it down the ground, and the throw came in from long-on. PK had the time to collect and break the stumps. Thisara was just outside the crease as he dived in full length. 279/3
View dismissal AD Mathews c Ashwin b Khan 14 14 10 1 0 140.00
48.5 73.1 mph, Mathews is gone? He tries to lash to the leg side from wide of off stump, but he gets a top edge. The ball loops up to long off, where Ashwin runs in and tumbles ahead to take a fine catch. That's India's first bright moment all day. 309/4

View dismissal V Sehwag c Dilshan b Maharoof 30 29 16 5 1 187.50
6.2 70.1 mph, that will only make D/L calculations tougher for India. Sehwag is gone, once again trying to heave a short ball over mid-on, but this time it loops off the top edge and lands in front of Dilshan, who tumbles forward and holds well. Sehwag will wonder if he should have gone squarer than that. The slowness of the pitch meant that was tougher. 54/1
View dismissal SR Tendulkar lbw b Malinga 39 45 30 5 0 130.00
9.2 88.6 mph, Tendulkar is gone, and this might be his last innings in this country that loves him so much. 144 kph yorker from Malinga, and Sachin pays the price for playing a high-risk shot. He's walked right across the stumps for the flick and missed the straight one. Hits the boot in front of middle and off. Sachin wasn't looking at the umpire, he was lookiing at the ball as it hurtled towards square leg. But he knew the finger was going up. 86/2
View dismissal G Gambhir run out (Chandimal/Mathews) 63 97 64 4 0 98.43
27.3 Mathews to Kohli, Gambhir is gone. It was a high risk second run, and Gambhir took on Chandimal, but what a throw from deep midwicket. Kohli works another slower ball off the pads, it loops off the edge, but safely away from the fielders. Gambhir came back for the second, and Chandimal's throw to Mathews on the bounce left the bowler having very little to do. 201/3
