6.1

Kumar to Sangakkara, no run, length ball outside off, tapped off the front foot towards cover

6.2

Kumar to Sangakkara, no run, brilliant from Bhuvneshwar, this delivery comes back in a touch after pitching outside off, Sangakkara lets it go but that was perilously close to the off stump

6.3

Kumar to Sangakkara, no run, shorter this time, and just a touch wider, defended towards cover by Sangakarra, Bhuvneshwar continues to be at his accurate best

6.4

Kumar to Sangakkara, no run, length ball on middle stump, blocked to the off side once more

6.5

Kumar to Sangakkara, no run, ooh, and another one which was inches away from off stump, that one pitches just outside off and straightens, Sangakkara leaves another one that is close to the stumps

8.4

Kumar to Sangakkara, no run, full ball jags away a touch, left alone

8.6

Kumar to Sangakkara, no run, Bhuvneshwar keeps it full and just outside off, left alone

Sri Lanka 26/1   B Kumar 5-1-10-1

10.1

Kumar to Sangakkara, 1 run, tight single is taken, that was full and outside off, Sangakkara gets a leading edge that sends the ball towards extra cover, sets off for a single, a direct hit would have made it very interesting but the fielder misses

10.2

Kumar to Thirimanne, no run, length ball outside off, blocked to the off side

10.3

Kumar to Thirimanne, no run, again Bhuvneshwar has the batsman fishing outside off, the ball seams away after pitching just outside off, a length delivery, good stuff this from India

10.4

Kumar to Thirimanne, no run, full and well outside off, left alone

10.5

Kumar to Thirimanne, no run, outside off left alone, the bounces a second time before reaching Dhoni, who stops it by padding up

Kumar to Thirimanne, no run, keeps it full, on the pads this time, blocked to the leg side to end another tight over

Sri Lanka 27/1   B Kumar 6-1-11-1

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

12.2

Kumar to Sangakkara, no run, full ball and just outside off, defended off the front foot to the off side

12.3

Kumar to Sangakkara, no run, full ball just outside off, squeezed out towards mid-off, Thirimanne sets off for a single but is sent back, well in time to make his ground

12.4

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   B Kumar 7-1-15-1

14.1

Kumar to Sangakkara, no run, an appeal for lbw, after the batsman is struck on the pad by a ball angling in, hit high on the flap of the pad, seemed to be heading over the stumps

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

14.4

Kumar to Sangakkara, no run, slides in from a length, Sangakkara is hurried into defending

14.5

Kumar to Sangakkara, no run, Sangakkara skips down the track and is cramped up by Bhuvneshwar, bottom hand comes off the bat as Sangakkara defends

14.6

Kumar to Sangakkara, no run, pitched up and outside off, allowed through to the keeper, and that's a maiden from Bhuvneshwar

Sri Lanka 36/1   B Kumar 8-2-15-1

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

16.3

Kumar to Jayawardene, no run, Bhuvneshwar seams this one in towards the stumps, from over the stumps for the right-hander, left alone by Jayawardene, that was pretty close to the off stump

16.4

Kumar to Jayawardene, no run, length ball just outside off, defended off the front foot towards cover

Kumar to Jayawardene, no run, seams in from a length, defended from around off stump to the leg side
