0.5

Kumar to MDKJ Perera, FOUR, swinging in towards the pads, a full delivery and that is helped along past square leg for a boundary

Sri Lanka 4/0   MDKJ Perera 4* (5b 1x4)   B Kumar 0.5-0-4-0

3.1

Yadav to Dilshan, FOUR, too short from Umesh, 137kph, sits up for Dilshan, who pulls that away contemptuously, swivels as he sends that to the boundary

Sri Lanka 10/1   TM Dilshan 6* (9b 1x4)   UT Yadav 1.1-0-5-0

3.3

Yadav to Dilshan, FOUR, terrific shot from Dilshan, gets on the front foot and drives a length ball on the off, not looking to power it but places it wide of extra cover for four

Sri Lanka 14/1   TM Dilshan 10* (11b 2x4)   UT Yadav 1.3-0-9-0

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)   B Kumar 7-1-15-1

13.2

I Sharma to Thirimanne, FOUR, lovely hit from Thirimanne, he's had enough of being watchful, a touch short from Ishant, Thirimanne makes room and skips down the track, slaps that over point for four

Sri Lanka 36/1   HDRL Thirimanne 7* (25b 1x4)   I Sharma 1.2-0-5-0

24.3

Jadeja to Jayawardene, FOUR, length ball, swept from outside off, a very well controlled shot from Mahela, doesn't power it, focusing more on the placement, beats a diving Ishant at deep square leg

Sri Lanka 69/3   DPMD Jayawardene 11* (27b 1x4)   RA Jadeja 1.3-0-7-0

25.3

Dhoni to Jayawardene, FOUR, short and wide from Dhoni, 123kph, put away by Mahela, slapped behind point for four, too wide for third man to cut it off despite the slow outfield

Sri Lanka 78/3   DPMD Jayawardene 18* (31b 2x4)   MS Dhoni 1.3-0-10-0

32.2

Jadeja to Jayawardene, FOUR, Jadeja drops it short, Mahela backs away and steers that delicately towards third man, superbly placed to get the boundary

Sri Lanka 106/3   DPMD Jayawardene 31* (52b 3x4)   RA Jadeja 5.2-0-24-0

42.1

Yadav to Mathews, FOUR, short ball just outside off, that is pulled away for four by Mathews, that sat up for Mathews, that was the first boundary in an hour

Sri Lanka 137/4   AD Mathews 44* (78b 1x4 1x6)   UT Yadav 7.1-2-26-0

44.1

I Sharma to Mendis, FOUR, a shortish ball on leg stump, Mendis swivels and helps that along towards fine leg for four, not the best of bowling from Ishant

Sri Lanka 150/4   BMAJ Mendis 12* (21b 1x4)   I Sharma 6.1-1-22-2

49.6

Ashwin to Malinga, FOUR,
