View dismissal WU Tharanga c Sehwag b Khan 2 30 20 0 0 10.00
6.1 83.6 mph, caught at slip! And Zaheer hasn't conceded a run yet. Zaheer pitches the ball on a length around off, forcing Tharanga to prod because of his line as well as the pressure he's created, the ball nips away from the left-hander off the pitch and Tharanga edges it. The chance flies quickly to Sehwag's right at first slip and he takes it before falling to the ground 17/1
View dismissal TM Dilshan b Harbhajan Singh 33 87 49 3 0 67.34
16.3 53.2 mph, gone! Harbhajan gets Dilshan! It was a very leg-side delivery and Dilshan went for the sweep, got a bit of glove on the ball and it's lobbed back on to his leg and deflected on to the stumps! Oh dear, what a disappointment for Dilshan but full credit to Harbhajan for building that pressure. 60/2
View dismissal KC Sangakkara*† c †Dhoni b Yuvraj Singh 48 102 67 5 0 71.64
27.5 54.0 mph, gone! Caught behind trying to cut! Yuvraj pushed this one across Sangakkara, whose eyes lit up as he went hard at the shot and got an edge through to Dhoni, who made no mistake. What a massive blow that is, Sangakkara was starting to look really good. And golden-arm Yuvraj does it again! 122/3

View dismissal TT Samaraweera lbw b Yuvraj Singh 21 53 34 2 0 61.76
38.1 52.2 mph, Yuvraj has a leg-before appeal turned down by umpire Taufel, and straightaway implores his captain to go for the review, Thilan went outside off stump on his knee for the big sweep, missed the delivery that went straight on with the angle, the question will be whether that hit him in line with off stump, it did, and is taking out middle stump, it is a rare occasion when umpire Taufel has to overturn his decision, this is one of them, and it is Yuvraj Singh for India again, he pushed Dhoni to go for the review 179/4
View dismissal CK Kapugedera c Raina b Khan 1 6 5 0 0 20.00
39.5 73.7 mph, the Zaheer slower ball, at 118.8 kph, consumes Kapu, he goes forward in a weak push that ends up in the air for a simple chance to Raina, at short extra cover, Zaheer just holds his arms aloft 182/5
View dismissal KMDN Kulasekara run out (†Dhoni) 32 41 30 1 1 106.66
47.6 Khan to Jayawardene, India get a wicket, but it is Kula, they tried to steal a run down the leg side, but Dhoni was spot-on with the under-arm lob 248/6

View dismissal V Sehwag lbw b Malinga 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
0.2 80.0 mph, Given out lbw, and immediately reviewed. Looks like a goner on replay! Back of a length delivery on middle stump, Sehwag was rising on the toes on leg stump line as it skidded through. He was on the hop as he closed the face and looked to flick. Misses the shot. Was there an inside edge? No evidence of that. Was that high? Not really - hit him under the roll. It's hitting middle. Three reds. Superb start for Sri Lanka! Sehwag top-scored for India in the 2003 final. Fair to say, he won't be the top scorer today. 0/1
View dismissal SR Tendulkar c †Sangakkara b Malinga 18 21 14 2 0 128.57
6.1 88.8 mph, The ball that silenced a billion. Most of Wankhede is silent. Some of it is very noisy, and has Sri Lankan flags waving away in a frenzy. Sachin's World Cup is over. No 100th 100 today. Malinga gets another over, another go at a wicket, and he responds with a wicket. It's that patent back of a length ball outside off and as always, Malinga got it to go away. Sachin tried the same shot, last ball of the previoius Malinga over, trotting across and looking for the steer through the off side. This time he edged it, and though it was dying on Sanga, he wasn't going to put it down. He dives to the right and comes up with the biggest wicket of the World Cup. 31/2
View dismissal G Gambhir b Perera 97 187 122 9 0 79.50
41.2 79.6 mph, No 100. "Needless shot," says Ravi Shastri on air and you can't argue with that. It was the shot for the crowds. He rushed down the track, got outside leg and went for the slog. Misses. Clatter! What a knock it has been so far, though. Under pressure, Gautam has delivered. BUt has he let the door slightly ajar now with that shot? He had the chance to slam it shut on the opposition but he has given them a whiff now. Wankhede crowd stands to applaud this knock in a World-cup final chase. 223/4
View dismissal V Kohli c & b Dilshan 35 69 49 4 0 71.42
21.4 51.6 mph, Dilshan! He's taken a blinder off his own bowling! Kohli drives and tries to get it back past the bowler, towards long-on, but Dilshan just sticks his right hand up in the air, almost in front of the non-striker's face, and plucks a magnificent catch! Could that be a decisive moment? It could very well be! 114/3
