Commonwealth Bank Series - 8th match

India v Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka won by 51 runs

18.4

Pathan to Jayawardene, OUT, there's the breakthrough, Sehwag flies to his left at midwicket to pull off a stunner, roll on more "slow fielder" talk, Mahela looks to club this outside off short of length delivery over the leg side, doesn't get hold of it too well, Sehwag dives to latch on to that and brings Sri Lanka's threatening opening stand to an end

DPMD Jayawardene c Sehwag b Pathan 45 (80m 55b 2x4 0x6) SR: 81.81

Sri Lanka 95/1   TM Dilshan 45* (57b 4x4 1x6)   IK Pathan 6.4-0-36-1

21.5

Ashwin to Dilshan, OUT, and both well-set batsmen are gone, Ashwin has struck, this one was a length ball well outside off, not much turn for Ashwin but it bounced, more than Dilshan expected at least, a thin top edge through to Parthiv, and Dilshan's stay is over

TM Dilshan c †Patel b Ashwin 51 (92m 72b 5x4 1x6) SR: 70.83

Sri Lanka 104/2   KC Sangakkara 2* (4b)   R Ashwin 3.5-0-15-1

27.1

Yadav to Sangakkara, OUT, and he strikes first ball, not the greatest of deliveries, a shortish ball around off stump, Sangakkara stylishly pulls that towards deep backward square leg, that reached Tendulkar in a hurry, he didn't have to move at all as Sangakkara does a great job of picking him out, five yards either way and that was a certain boundary given how well he hit it

KC Sangakkara c Tendulkar b Yadav 8 (30m 15b 0x4 0x6) SR: 53.33

Sri Lanka 124/3   LD Chandimal 13* (21b)   UT Yadav 3.1-0-22-1

38.6

Pathan to Chandimal, OUT, Irfan's yorker does the job, full and heading for leg stump, beats Chandimal and it crashes into the base of keg stump, ending an important stand, Sri Lanka fans will be thrilled seeing how well two of their youngster performed after the experienced trio at the top were dismissed

LD Chandimal b Pathan 38 (68m 49b 0x4 0x6) SR: 77.55

Sri Lanka 195/4   HDRL Thirimanne 43* (43b 5x4)   IK Pathan 9-0-49-2

45.6

Ashwin to Thirimanne, OUT, superb catch to end a fine innings from Thirimanne, a short of length ball, Thirimanne is down the track and carves the ball towards sweeper cover, Raina has to move to his left and tumble forward to take that one, well judged

HDRL Thirimanne c Raina b Ashwin 62 (83m 62b 6x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Sri Lanka 244/5   AD Mathews 27* (24b 3x4)   R Ashwin 10-0-50-2

48.1

Raina to Perera, OUT, bowled him, how fast was that? a short of length ball that Perera wanted to slog to his favourite midwicket area, was too quick for him and that crashes into middle stump, 103kph from Raina that was

NLTC Perera b Raina 10 (14m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 142.85

Sri Lanka 265/6   AD Mathews 36* (30b 3x4)   SK Raina 0.1-0-0-1
