18.6

Yuvraj Singh to Elliott, no run, Dhoni is confident that he has stumped the batsman. It was a nice delivery that drifted in before turning past the lunging batsman. The back foot did drag out and it appears to be on the line or is it just in when Dhoni breaks the stumps. It has been referred upstairs. The line belongs to the umpire and Gamini de Silva rules it not out. hmmm.. very close call. The benefit of the doubt and all that jazz.

Yuvraj Singh to Elliott, OUT, quicker one, sliding down the leg side, Elliott misses the flick and Dhoni 'catches' it. Loud appeal and it has been given out. The first replay suggests it was off the pad. Will confirm again after more replays.
