View dismissal V Sehwag c †Sangakkara b Welegedara 4 3 4 1 0 100.00
0.4 Welegedera takes out Sehwag. Quite similar delivery but he didn't leave this one alone. He went for the flashy cut, was cramped up for room and edged it behind. Sanga flew to his right to pouch a very good catch. The Big fish has been caught. 4/1
View dismissal SR Tendulkar st †Sangakkara b Mendis 43 76 52 4 0 82.69
16.5 Mendis gets SRT stumped. It was the loopy two-fingered googly, turns in from a short of length and outside off. Tendulkar was down the track and went for the big heave-ho over the infield but wafted inside the line. Done in by the shortening of the length and by the fact that this one didn't break back in as much as a regular googly. He couldn't adjust quickly enough after he failed to reach the pitch of the ball. 81/3
View dismissal G Gambhir run out (Mathews) 2 18 6 0 0 33.33
4.1 from Welegedara, Gambhir is run out Gambhir isn't too happy as he had collided with the bowler. But the bowler didn't do it deliberately. He was backing up, back pedaling away from the stumps, and Gambhir tried to go around him but bang.. clash and he couldn't get into the crease in time. The mid-on fielder fired in a direct hit. It was refered upstairs and the correct verdict has been given. 19/2
View dismissal V Kohli lbw b Randiv 54 93 65 7 0 83.07
26.3 trapped in front. It turned in from outside off stump, Kohli walked across to try to work it to the on side for a single but missed it and was struck in line with the stumps. Hawk eye says it would have hit the top of the middle stump. 132/4
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c Dilshan b Randiv 107 135 111 8 2 96.39
49.3 A tired looking Dhoni holes out to deep midwicket. He went down the track and heaved it straight to Dilshan. The crowd are up on their feet to applaud the Indian captain. 300/6
View dismissal SK Raina c Randiv b Mathews 68 78 55 4 3 123.63
46.2 Another slow short delivery and Raina goes for the pull but sends it straight to deep midwicket. Fine innings comes to an end. 258/5

View dismissal Harbhajan Singh st †Sangakkara b Randiv 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
49.6 Harbhajan goes down the track, the bowler floats it further outside off and Harbhajan can't get bat to ball with his slog. Sangakkara does the rest 301/7

View dismissal WU Tharanga c Sehwag b Harbhajan Singh 37 62 42 5 0 88.09
13.6 Harbhajan strikes. He lures Tharanga forward with a flighted delivery on a good length, from round the stumps; it dips and turns away from Tharanga who was looking to tap it across the line. Sehwag lunges to his right at slip to take a neat catch 102/1
View dismissal TM Dilshan b Nehra 123 156 113 12 2 108.84
35.5 Clatter. A fine yorker ends a very fine innings. It was on the middle stump line, Dilshan tries to jab it away to the point region but no wood on leather. He has taken SL close but Nehra has taken him out to make things more interesting. 213/3
View dismissal KC Sangakkara*† run out (Raina/Khan) 21 33 22 2 0 95.45
21.4 Khan to Dilshan, Sangakkara is run out What a mess. Indians celebrate. It was pushed to left of cover and Dilshan did take couple of steps that encouraged Sanga to rush down the track. DIlshan changed his mind. Too late, though. Raina lobbed the ball to Zak who breaks the stumps. 147/2
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene c †Dhoni b Khan 39 75 47 1 0 82.97
39.1 Big wicket. Mahela walks after edging. The game is hurting towards a thrilling climax. It was a length delivery in the channel, Mahela goes for the off drive but feathers a thin edge. Dhoni catches the ball and throws it high in the air, Mahela walks and Zaheer keeps appealing till some one tells him that the batsman has already walked 232/4
View dismissal SHT Kandamby c Kohli b Khan 27 45 32 2 0 84.37
44.3 Kandamby falls close to the target. Again. It's a short of length delivery, Kandamby goes for the pull but mistimes it just behind mid-on where Kohli rushes back, reaches out to take a fine tumbling catch. The crowd clear their throat. 264/5
AD Mathews not out 37 62 25 4 0 148.00
View dismissal CK Kapugedera b Khan 2 2 2 0 0 100.00
44.5 Clatter. The crowd go mad as they realise Zaheer Khan has cleaned up the new batsman with a full-length delivery. Kapugedera plays all around it, as he goes across the line, and loses his stumps. Zaheer and Nehra have brought India back into the game in some style. 267/6
View dismissal S Randiv run out (Harbhajan Singh) 5 16 8 0 0 62.50
47.2 from Kumar, Randiv is run out. Direct hit from Harbhajan. Randiv moved outside leg stump to punch to mid-off where Harbhajan rushed forward to fire a direct hit at the non striker's end. Yet another twist here. 285/7
