Commonwealth Bank Series - 5th match

India v Sri Lanka

Match tied

0.2

Vinay Kumar to Tharanga, OUT, beauty from Vinay, Tharanga's troubles in Australia continue, a short of length ball that moves away a touch, Tharanga doesn't bother much about his footwork as he fishes at the ball, nicks it and it's easy for Dhoni, who has to move forward a touch to collect that

WU Tharanga c †Dhoni b Vinay Kumar 0 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 0/1   TM Dilshan 0* (0b)   R Vinay Kumar 0.2-0-0-1

7.1

Pathan to Dilshan, OUT, Irfan has a wicket, with his trademark incutter, Dilshan throws his bat at that one outside off, bottom edges it through to the keeper, Dhoni doesn't bother with appealing, just throws the ball up in the air to celebrate the wicket

TM Dilshan c †Dhoni b Pathan 16 (33m 23b 1x4 1x6) SR: 69.56

Sri Lanka 28/2   KC Sangakkara 10* (18b 1x4)   IK Pathan 3.1-0-9-1

19.4

Ashwin to Sangakkara, OUT, leading edge! Sangakkara gives Ashwin the charge, tries to launch him over mid-on but spoons a big leading edge down to point, credit to Ashwin for tossing it up

KC Sangakkara c Gambhir b Ashwin 31 (85m 56b 2x4 0x6) SR: 55.35

Sri Lanka 79/3   LD Chandimal 29* (37b 3x4)   R Ashwin 2.4-0-3-1

36.2

Vinay Kumar to Jayawardene, OUT, the bowling change works! Vinay is rewarded for bowling it straight, the ball doesn't bounce as much as Jayawardene expected, hits him fairly low on the pad in front of the stumps as he tries to tuck it away

DPMD Jayawardene lbw b Vinay Kumar 43 (56m 49b 2x4 0x6) SR: 87.75

Sri Lanka 173/4   LD Chandimal 77* (88b 6x4 1x6)   R Vinay Kumar 7.2-1-31-2

37.3

Ashwin to Mathews, OUT, Dhoni makes no error this time! What a pity for Chandimal, Mathews dropped it in front of short cover and they have to hurry, the under-arm flick by Rohit is sharp and Dhoni collects and breaks the stumps, the third umpire takes a look

LD Chandimal run out 81 (118m 91b 6x4 1x6) SR: 89.01

Sri Lanka 178/5   AD Mathews 1* (4b)   R Ashwin 7.3-1-24-1

39.4

Ashwin to Perera, OUT, the frustration gets to Perera! He tries to slam it over the infield by staying at the crease, he plays all over it and skies it down to Virat who takes it at deepish mid-off

NLTC Perera c Kohli b Ashwin 5 (8m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 55.55

Sri Lanka 184/6   AD Mathews 2* (8b)   R Ashwin 8.4-1-27-2

46.3

Pathan to Mathews, OUT, what a waste for Sri Lanka! Mathews made room and swung at a low full toss swinging away from him, he stepped out of his crease to steal a bye but before he could turn around and make his way back Dhoni had under-armed it to the stumps

AD Mathews run out 17 (41m 30b 1x4 0x6) SR: 56.66

Sri Lanka 210/7   KMDN Kulasekara 10* (19b)   IK Pathan 7.3-0-26-1

49.3

Vinay Kumar to Kulasekara, OUT, the frustration gets to Kulasekara as he tries to hit out, another slower ball, shorter in length, he top edges the pull down to Kohli at point

KMDN Kulasekara c Gambhir b Vinay Kumar 12 (39m 25b 0x4 0x6) SR: 48.00

Sri Lanka 232/8   SMSM Senanayake 19* (12b 3x4)   R Vinay Kumar 9.3-1-42-3

49.5

Vinay Kumar to Senanayake, 1 run, OUT, slams a full delivery down to midwicket, Senanayake ran the first one hard but Malinga wanted the second to give his partner the strike, Senanayake didn't want the second and Malinga had to turn back, he was well short of his ground once Dhoni broke the stumps, the third umpire takes a look

SL Malinga run out 0 (1m 0b 0x4 0x6) SR: -

Sri Lanka 235/9   SMSM Senanayake 22* (14b 3x4)   R Vinay Kumar 9.5-1-45-3
