View dismissal G Gambhir b Welegedara 8 13 12 1 0 66.66
2.6 that's a stunning yorker! Welegedara will want to see this replay a 100 times, he swings it in and lands the ball on the blockhole, Gambhir closes the face of the bat, fails to dig it out and the ball goes straight through and hits the leg stump, too bad the stumps didn't fall 14/1
View dismissal V Sehwag c Thirimanne b Welegedara 47 44 31 9 0 151.61
8.4 very soft dismissal there! The slower ball, Sehwag tries to turn it to the on side but plays too early, he gets a thick leading edge and Thirimanne takes it easily at mid-off 71/3
View dismissal V Kohli c †Sangakkara b Welegedara 9 19 12 1 0 75.00
6.5 great reflexes by Sangakkara! Comes round the wicket, Kohli tries to cheekily nudge it down to third man but gets a thick edge, Sanga falls to his right and catches it 62/2
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c Lakmal b Perera 74 127 84 6 2 88.09
37.5 caught at boundary, Perera is having a superb match, bouncer, Yuvraj pulls off the front foot, gets the higher part of the bat, and Lakmal doesn't have to move much at the deep midwicket boundary 198/5
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c †Sangakkara b Perera 37 85 70 3 0 52.85
31.2 he has got him this time, the partnership stays at 99. Slightly loose shot, sees a short delivery, throws his bat at it, gets a thick outside edge - perhaps because it's too close to him - and Sangakkara takes a good diving catch to his right. What a first wicket for Perera 170/4
View dismissal SK Raina b Welegedara 35 66 46 4 0 76.08
45.5 bowled him, superb yorker, swinging in towards middle and leg, Raina is looking to do too much with an open face, but the ball sneaks under the bat. Too good a delivery to try a cute shot 263/6
View dismissal RA Jadeja c Kandamby b Thushara 39 41 34 3 1 114.70
49.2 that's No. 9, slower bouncer, Jadeja goes for the pull, is early into the shot, and is caught at midwicket, at the edge of the circle 275/9
View dismissal Harbhajan Singh c Perera b Thushara 1 2 2 0 0 50.00
46.1 and he gets a wicket, what is Harbhajan up to? Moves across the stumps too early, Thushara bowls it full and wide, and Harbhajan looks to slash it to the off side but ends up spooning it to point 264/7
View dismissal Z Khan b Welegedara 2 4 4 0 0 50.00
47.1 high five for Welegedara! Zaheer backs away again, leaving the stumps exposed, and Welegedara bowls stump to stump, hitting the top of the middle stump. Welegedara is elated with this fifth wicket 268/8

View dismissal WU Tharanga c & b Harbhajan Singh 30 78 48 4 0 62.50
15.4 soft dismissal, is looking to drive, the ball doesn't turn much and he checks his shot and lobs back a simple catch to Harbhajan 77/2
View dismissal HDRL Thirimanne c Gambhir b Sreesanth 22 38 24 4 0 91.66
8.3 taken, finally a wicket, this time he tries to manufacture a pull shot, walking across the stumps, but the ball is not short enough and he gets a top edge that lobs to Gambhir at square leg 48/1
View dismissal KC Sangakkara*† c Raina b Harbhajan Singh 60 127 80 4 0 75.00
36.2 caught! Harbhajan flights it and gives Sangakkara room, he reaches out and tries to drive through cover and ends up hitting it straight to Raina, Sangakkara's angry with himself as he walks off 199/3

View dismissal SHT Kandamby c Sreesanth b Harbhajan Singh 8 16 11 1 0 72.72
40.5 are we onto something here? Kandamby plays an ill-advised slog-sweep here. It's invitingly flighted by Harbhajan, and he gets a top edge, and holes out to midwicket 217/4
View dismissal S Randiv run out (†Dhoni/Nehra) 4 12 9 0 0 44.44
43.3 Nehra to Samaraweera, another wicket goes, run-out that too, Samaraweera makes room, Nehra follows him, the balls off the pad, Randiv wants a leg-bye, but is sent back, and slips while turning, and it's an easy run-out for Dhoni and Nehra 226/5
