34.5 from Fernando, Sehwag's gone! run-out by a direct hit from Jayasuriya, Sehwag punches the ball towards mid-off, and sets off for a tight single, but is caught about a couple of feet short of his crease, he didn't bother waiting for the third umpire's decision 265/4

3.6 Fernando to Sehwag, Gambhir's gone, that was lucky for Sri Lanka, Sehwag pushes the ball back towards the bowler, who does well to get a hand onto the ball, it brushes his fingers and crashes into the stumps at the non-striker's end, where Gambhir is caught well out of his crease 24/2
