View dismissal WU Tharanga st †Dhoni b Ashwin 51 97 73 4 1 69.86
21.1 Tharanga is stumped, Ashwin saw Tharanga skipping down the track, bowled it short, the ball didn't turn away after pitching, carried on in the same direction, Tharanga was looking for the spin and he misses the ball, he yards out of the crease, Dhoni has the ball, bails on the ground and both of Sri Lanka's openers are now dismissed 102/2
View dismissal TM Dilshan c †Dhoni b Dinda 42 84 48 7 0 87.50
18.2 81.7 mph, Dinda has struck, once again he bowls it short, Dilshan goes for the pull, top edges it, unlike the Tharanga top edge that went for six, this one goes nowhere, swirls to the right of Dhoni, who settles under it and collects, bye bye Dilshan 91/1
View dismissal HDRL Thirimanne b Ashwin 47 105 69 0 0 68.11
46.6 bowled 'im, Sri Lanka's implosion continues, Thirimanne charges down the track and looks to force the ball through the off side, the ball went straight on, doesn't spin away, he misses and that crashes into the top of leg stump 219/8
View dismissal LD Chandimal c Pathan b Tiwary 28 36 32 2 0 87.50
31.4 Tiwary is overjoyed, as he strikes in his first over, not an exceptional delivery, was a long hop that Chandimal could have hit anywhere he wanted, Chandimal just picks out the man at square leg, he's gone for 28, a slice of luck for India 152/3
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* c †Dhoni b Sehwag 3 4 3 0 0 100.00
32.1 the part-timers get another wicket, the biggest one of the innings now, Mahela looks to scoop a full ball, ends up lobbing it towards Dhoni, who accepts, umpire doesn't take long to raise the finger and send Mahela on his way, very early in Mahela's innings to be attempting that adventurous shot, SL slip to 155 for 4 155/4
View dismissal AD Mathews c Kohli b Tiwary 14 27 34 1 0 41.17
41.1 Manoj Tiwary has a huge grin on his face, and why not, he's just got his second wicket, a length ball spinning away, Mathews decided it was time to get a move on, he skipped out and launched the ball towards long-off, didn't get enough power on that, long-off takes the catch 190/5
View dismissal BMAJ Mendis b Tiwary 17 14 16 2 0 106.25
45.1 third for Tiwary! Mendis looked to reverse-sweep, he's bowled by a flighted legbreak, Tiwary can do no wrong here, send him up the order today when India bat, this is his best bowling figures in ODI and domestic one-dayers as well 213/6
View dismissal NLTC Perera c Raina b Tiwary 2 3 3 0 0 66.66
45.6 Tiwary's day gets better and better, he's got his fourth now! Perera looks to clobber the ball into orbit, he hits it high but not long enough, Raina gets under it at midwicket, and does well to pouch that one, he had plenty of ground to cover, judges it perfectly 218/7

0.5 86.2 mph, bowled 'im, a swinging yorker homes into the base of middle stump, Gambhir was terrific in the last couple of games, he's gone for a duck, Gambhir looking to push that down the ground but misses, the famous Malinga yorker does the job 0/1

12.4 Rohit Sharma has wasted another chance, he's gone for 4, he doesn't want to go, that should end his international career temporarily, surely, that was a length ball that was angling in, Rohit looked to work it to the leg side, he missed, hits the pads, that was going on to hit leg stump 60/3
