View dismissal WU Tharanga run out (Kohli/†Karthik) 1 8 2 0 0 50.00
1.4 Dinda to Dilshan, lazy running for the third run gets Tharanga finally. Punched away through the covers, doesn't reach the fence, Kohli gives the chase, fumbles, and then lets rip a throw on the top of the stumps to find him short. Tharanga, who has ambled the first two runs, is surprised that the throw came to his end. Almost Indian running 8/1
View dismissal TM Dilshan*† run out (Sharma/Mishra) 61 94 84 4 1 72.61
24.1 from Mishra, and Dilshan has run himself out after looking to have regained some form. Low full toss, worked to square leg, Dilshan calls Mathews for one, and then stops after taking a couple of strides, and that hesitation causes him his wicket as Rohit's throw is accurate and Mishra makes no mistake 97/3
View dismissal TT Samaraweera st †Karthik b Ojha 19 36 24 2 0 79.16
10.4 Ojha strikes in his first over! Not the smartest of shots, giving him the charge too early, and Ojha shortens the length, and Samaraweera is nowhere close to the pitch of the ball and pushes at it away from the body. There is enough turn to beat that push, and Karthik does the rest 39/2
View dismissal AD Mathews b Yadav 75 152 95 2 2 78.94
48.2 and he misses another length ball! Eyes lighten up seeing this length ball, looks for the big mow over midwicket, and misses and loses his off stump 226/7
View dismissal CK Kapugedera c Vijay b Jadeja 20 54 48 0 0 41.66
37.6 Kapugedera will still hope he had not taken the single. Back on strike, he charges down the track, is not quite to the pitch of the ball, and ends up chipping it in front of his body, straight down the lap of long-off 150/4
View dismissal LPC Silva lbw b Jadeja 5 6 5 1 0 100.00
39.2 Silva is gone! premeditates the sweep, gets way too far across the stumps, misses a full and straight delivery, and is a dead duck 156/5
View dismissal NLTC Perera c Raina b Ojha 32 29 23 2 1 139.13
45.3 again stays back to a fullish delivery and pulls and finds midwicket. Big wicket for India, Sri Lanka have once again been hit when they looked like getting away 204/6
View dismissal KMDN Kulasekara b Dinda 19 21 14 1 1 135.71
49.3 another slower ball, 101ks, too good for Kulasekara who plays across the line and has his middle stump taken out 240/9
View dismissal S Randiv run out (Dinda) 1 6 2 0 0 50.00
49.2 from Dinda, near yorker again, Randiv misses and the ball goes nowhere off the pad. Kulasekara calls him through for a leg-bye, but Dinda gets an easy run-out at non-striker's end 239/8
CRD Fernando not out 0 2 0 0 0 -
View dismissal BAW Mendis b Dinda 2 1 2 0 0 100.00
49.5 another slower ball and another stump is out of the ground! 101.6ks, and Mendis is early into the shot and the leg stump is gone. While the specialist batsmen kept picking his slower balls easily, the same delivery has proved to be too good for the tail 242/10

View dismissal KD Karthik c sub (BMAJ Mendis) b Mendis 18 47 26 3 0 69.23
9.4 two-fingered googly, he read it too, rocked back to pull it, and instead of going over midwicket, he hit it straight into his lap. Soft dismissal, he is beside himself, did almost everything right, yet at the last moment the execution went wrong 47/2
View dismissal M Vijay lbw b Kulasekara 14 31 20 1 0 70.00
6.4 gone! Kula strikes with the inswinger! Perfect area, and he finally plays the drive, and is beaten and hit on the back leg. It seemed in live time that an inside edge might have saved him, but replays prove the umpire to be correct. Good persistent bowling. On second look, the snicko confirms an edge 28/1
View dismissal V Kohli c Fernando b Randiv 82 125 92 4 0 89.13
37.4 Kohli has missed out on a century here! He wants to finish this early, comes down the track to play the lofted shot, but gets too close to the pitch of the ball, and doesn't get the desired elevation and holes out to long-on 201/3
