View dismissal TM Dilshan c Yuvraj Singh b Kumar 38 54 45 6 0 84.44
12.1 tame dismissal there, short outside off, he walks across and tries to heave it over midwicket, gets the top edge and Yuvraj at point takes a dolly. 79/2
View dismissal ST Jayasuriya c RG Sharma b IK Pathan 27 33 16 1 2 168.75
7.2 gone! Shorter this time, just marginally outside off, Jayasuriya tries to slap that through the off side off the back foot, was surprised by the bounce there, got more elevation that he would have liked and Rohit Sharma at short cover snaps a smart catch 55/1
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c Gambhir b Sehwag 56 94 74 4 0 75.67
33.4 that looked inevitable, Sri Lanka were struggling badly, flighted outside off, he comes down the track and tries to loft it in the deep extra cover region, times it well but gets the direction wrong, Gautam Gambhir at long-off runs a few paces to his right and cups an easy chance 174/5
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* c †Dhoni b Sehwag 28 46 40 0 0 70.00
25.4 gone!! Mahela was struggling there, short of a length outside off, tries to late-cut that past point, gets a thick outside edge that Dhoni fails to latch onto in the first attempt, the ball lobs off his gloves and he pouches it comfortably in the second. 140/3
View dismissal SHT Kandamby lbw b YK Pathan 10 15 15 0 0 66.66
30.3 he's given him! Bowling from round the wicket, drifting into the batsman, the ball held its line, there was no spin on it, tried to cut it expecting the ball to turn, missed it completely as it went straight on to strike him in line with middle 163/4
View dismissal CK Kapugedera b Ojha 16 32 26 0 0 61.53
40.1 Fails to read the straighter one, arm ball targeting middle, Kapugedara gets on the back foot to play it on the off side while expecting it to turn away from him, ends up missing it completely and is bowled through the gate 207/7
View dismissal AD Mathews c †Dhoni b Yuvraj Singh 6 8 9 0 0 66.66
35.5 tossed up outside off, he tries to play a similar shot this time but much squarer, opens the face again but the ball kisses the outside edge and Dhoni takes a sharp catch. 183/6
View dismissal MF Maharoof c RG Sharma b IK Pathan 28 24 26 4 0 107.69
42.3 low full toss on leg stump, tries to clear mid-on with a wristy chip but finds Rohit Sharma who takes the simplest of catches 220/8

View dismissal M Muralitharan c Raina b IK Pathan 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
42.4 well, he's gone first ball, and Irfan is on a hattrick! Full outside off, he makes room to clear the offside field, mistimes it and ends up lobbing an easy catch to Raina at cover. 220/9
View dismissal CRD Fernando b Kumar 9 21 14 1 0 64.28
47.6 that's it, its all over! Slightly short of a length on the off stump, Dilhara makes to slog that into the stands, misses it completely and the stumps take a beating! 265/10
