Commonwealth Bank Series, 11th Match: India v Sri Lanka at Hobart, Feb 28, 2012
India won by 7 wickets (with 80 balls remaining)
Played at Bellerive Oval, Hobart (neutral venue)
28 February 2012 - day/night match (50-over match)

Jadeja to Jayawardene, OUT, 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.

DPMD Jayawardene c Sehwag b Jadeja 22 (50m 33b 1x4 1x6) SR: 66.66

Sri Lanka 49/1   TM Dilshan 25* (39b 2x4)   RA Jadeja 1-0-1-1

Kumar to Sangakkara, OUT, 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.

KC Sangakkara b Kumar 105 (119m 87b 8x4 2x6) SR: 120.68

Sri Lanka 249/2   TM Dilshan 114* (140b 10x4)   P Kumar 7.2-0-43-1

Kumar to Dilshan, 1 run, OUT, 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.

NLTC Perera run out 3 (13m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Sri Lanka 279/3   TM Dilshan 135* (150b 11x4 1x6)   P Kumar 8.3-0-60-1

Khan to Mathews, OUT, 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.

AD Mathews c Ashwin b Khan 14 (14m 10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 140.00

Sri Lanka 309/4   TM Dilshan 151* (160b 11x4 2x6)   Z Khan 8.5-0-60-1
