Z Khan c DPMD Jayawardene b Herath 1 (12m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 8.33

Sandip from the US: "Herath is doing a Mendis - mystery ball turning into the right hander. Interesting decision for Sangakkara for 3rd Test in Mumbai. Is a wicket which assists seamers - so difficult choice - to leave out Herath or Mendis?"

Herath to Ojha, 1 run, tossed up, full and on the pads, tickled to short fine leg for his first run

S Sreesanth lbw b Herath 0 (7m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India are bowled out for 642, they were 613 for 4 at one stage. It was Herath who did most of the damage today, starting just before tea, using his "mystery" ball to spin out the tail. There is some slow turn on the pitch, but definitely not anything alarming enough to cause the sort of collapse that just happened. Still, 642 isn't too shabby a total.

"Is this the first match featuring Harbajan Singh and Sreesanth after the infamous slapping incident in IPL-1?" asks Deepak. Their first for India, but the two did play against each other in the IPL this year.

End of over 154 (1 run) India 642/10
     HMRKB Herath    33-2-121-5
PP Ojha    1* (2b)      BAW Mendis    38-3-162-2
Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150  | Overs 151-200
