India v Sri Lanka

India won by 7 wickets (with 36 balls remaining)

7.4

Agarkar to Jayasuriya, OUT, gone! A slower ball again, about a half-volley outside off stump, and Jayasuriya drives off the front foot loosely and chips it straight to Ganguly at cover

ST Jayasuriya c Ganguly b Agarkar 22 (36m 19b 3x4 1x6) SR: 115.78

Sri Lanka 42/1   MS Atapattu 16* (27b 2x4)   AB Agarkar 3.4-0-18-1

9.1

Agarkar to Jayawardene, OUT, and he's gone! That was a fullish delivery on off stump, and he looks to hit it over the top but didnt even go through with the shot, getting under it instead, and the leading edge goes up, up in the air and settles in Uthappa's hands at cover, Jayawardene fails again

DPMD Jayawardene c Uthappa b Agarkar 7 (8m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 87.50

Sri Lanka 50/2   MS Atapattu 17* (28b 2x4)   AB Agarkar 4.1-0-23-2

10.1

Khan to Sangakkara, OUT, gone! Zaheer! Fullish delivery outside off stump, in the slot to be driven, but Sangakkara does so loosely, with little footwork and a raised head, and ends up hitting it in the air to Uthappa at cover, who juggles the take and completes in on the third attempt

KC Sangakkara c Uthappa b Khan 1 (5m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Sri Lanka 52/3   MS Atapattu 18* (32b 2x4)   Z Khan 5.1-1-25-1

12.1

Sreesanth to Atapattu, OUT, and he strikes first ball! Quick, back of a length delivery outside off stump, to which Atapattu stands and defends, no foot movement, and the ball swings in takes the inside-edge onto off stump

MS Atapattu b Sreesanth 19 (62m 37b 2x4 0x6) SR: 51.35

Sri Lanka 56/4   LPC Silva 2* (7b)   S Sreesanth 0.1-0-0-1

26.2

Ganguly to Dilshan, OUT, Uthappa takes a beauty! Full and outside off, driven on the up and it was dropping short of Uthappa at cover who takes a few steps forward and dives to take it inches off the ground. Gets on his feet, takes the cap of his head and bows in a dramatic style, like a performer on stage, to the crowd even as the fielders mob him. Third batsman getting out driving on the up.

TM Dilshan c Uthappa b Ganguly 28 (65m 44b 3x4 0x6) SR: 63.63

Sri Lanka 124/5   LPC Silva 39* (48b 4x4 1x6)   SC Ganguly 2.2-0-9-1

36.2

Sehwag to Arnold, OUT, gone! Quick and short again, Arnold gets back to pull but cant get away with it, getting under it and lofting it down to Sreesanth at a wide long-on, who doesnt have to move much to hold an easy take

RP Arnold c Sreesanth b Sehwag 22 (36m 34b 0x4 1x6) SR: 64.70

Sri Lanka 165/6   LPC Silva 57* (74b 5x4 1x6)   V Sehwag 1.2-0-6-1

44.2

Khan to Maharoof, OUT, Zak hits back. Another low full toss but this time Maharoof looped it towards extra cover. Kartik takes the dolly. Good cameo from Maharoof comes to an end as we hurtle further towards the end of the Sri Lankan innings. Remember this is a 47-overs game.

MF Maharoof c Karthik b Khan 28 (35m 28b 2x4 1x6) SR: 100.00

Sri Lanka 229/7   LPC Silva 84* (95b 8x4 1x6)   Z Khan 9.2-2-47-2
