11.3

I Sharma to Sangakkara, no run, short of a length ball, 132.8kph, on the pads, looks to tuck it to the leg side, a bit of a leading edge towards cover

Sri Lanka 28/1   KC Sangakkara 9* (27b)

12.1

Kumar to Sangakkara, no run, Bhuvneshwar into his seventh over, no surprise to see him continue, Dhoni likes to use him for long spells early on, starts with a back of length ball that is pushed towards cover

Kumar to Sangakkara, no run, length ball pitching just outside off, Sangakkara happy to leave that one as well

12.5

Kumar to Sangakkara, no run, a touch shorter from Bhuvneshwar, gets the ball to snake away, Sangakkara had shuffled across, perhaps looking to play that to the leg side, sees the ball move away and decides to shoulder arms

12.6

Kumar to Sangakkara, FOUR, Sangakkara takes a bit of risk this time and it pays off, skips down the track and thrashes that length delivery through cover for a boundary, the first four since the fourth over

Sri Lanka 32/1   KC Sangakkara 13* (33b 1x4)

14.1

14.2

Kumar to Sangakkara, no run, length ball just outside off, defended to the off side

14.3

Kumar to Sangakkara, no run, homing in on off stump, defended off the front foot to the right of the bowler

Kumar to Sangakkara, 2 runs, length ball from wide of the crease, a lovely drive from Sangakkara, sends the ball past cover, didn't try to power that one

16.2

Kumar to Sangakkara, 1 run, length delivery angling in, dabbed towards mid-on for a quick single, Umesh wasn't quick enough starting off to field that

I Sharma to Sangakkara, 1 run, short of length ball on middle stump, Sangakkara defends to the leg side for a single

I Sharma to Sangakkara, no run, again the batsman can't control the ball, the ball loops to the right of the bowler as Sangakkara looks to defend

17.6

I Sharma to Sangakkara, OUT, another catch at second slip, Raina it is again, pouches another left-hander, Ishant got the delivery to jag away sharply, Sangakkara has left so many deliveries like this one today, but is sucked into playing at it and he nicks it through, Sri Lanka in serious trouble now, how good a toss was this to win?

KC Sangakkara c Raina b I Sharma 17 (77m 44b 1x4 0x6) SR: 38.63

Sri Lanka 41/3   KC Sangakkara 17 (44b 1x4)
