Muralitharan to Sehwag, OUT, gone! Dilshan takes a smart catch at extra cover, tossed it up and it landed on a good length just outside off, Sehwag, though not to the pitch, was tempted to force it past extra cover but played it uppishly and Dilshan took a sharp chance diving to his left

V Sehwag c Dilshan b Muralitharan 131 (181m 122b 18x4 2x6) SR: 107.37

India 233/1   G Gambhir 98* (129b 9x4)   M Muralitharan 10.2-0-67-1

Muralitharan to Gambhir, OUT, A piece of magic from Murali, he was bowling from round the wicket, Gambhir punches the ball to the bowler's right, Murali flings himself full-length to pluck that one inches off the ground, not bad for a 37-year-old. It also ends Gambhir's remarkable innings at 167

G Gambhir c & b Muralitharan 167 (298m 215b 15x4 0x6) SR: 77.67

India 370/2   R Dravid 58* (117b 6x4)   M Muralitharan 16.1-0-89-2

Mendis to Tendulkar, OUT, the drop doesn't prove too costly, charges down the track again and tries to clear Samaraweera at a slightly deepish mid-off but is unable to, didn't get the desired connection or the elevation and found the fielder.

SR Tendulkar c Samaraweera b Mendis 40 (122m 91b 0x4 1x6) SR: 43.95

India 464/3   R Dravid 111* (193b 11x4)   BAW Mendis 21.5-0-99-1

Herath to Laxman, OUT, run-out in the most unfortunate circumstances, flighted on middle, Laxman charges down and absolutely drills it back to Herath who drops it but ends up palming the ball onto the stumps at the non-striker's end, where Dravid, who's backed up a fair bit, can't drag his bat back in time

R Dravid run out 144 (280m 226b 15x4 1x6) SR: 63.71

India 511/4   VVS Laxman 13* (30b 1x4)   HMRKB Herath 21.2-0-102-0

Herath to Laxman, OUT, Laxman's been sent back! Tempted by the flighted delivery, came down the track and tried to clear mid-off, mistimed it straight to him, got to the pitch but didn't connect well enough, falls for the bait, Dilshan takes it easily

VVS Laxman c Dilshan b Herath 63 (150m 121b 5x4 0x6) SR: 52.06

India 613/5   Yuvraj Singh 52* (76b 2x4 2x6)   HMRKB Herath 26.1-1-109-1

Herath to Dhoni, OUT, deceived him in the flight, Dhoni didn't have an idea there, tossed up on the off stump and angled in from round the wicket, Dhoni lunged forward to push it in the direction of mid-off, was a little too early into that shot and was bowled through the gate

MS Dhoni b Herath 4 (16m 15b 0x4 0x6) SR: 26.66

India 619/6   Yuvraj Singh 54* (86b 2x4 2x6)   HMRKB Herath 28.2-2-111-2

Herath to Harbhajan Singh, OUT, actually turns in, a tweak of the fingers and gets it to move in off the pitch, Harbhajan, playing for the away spin, stretches forward to defend but it darts in through the gate to crash into the stumps, Dhoni, too, was gone in a similar fashion

Harbhajan Singh b Herath 5 (17m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 35.71

India 639/7   Yuvraj Singh 66* (98b 4x4 2x6)   HMRKB Herath 30.4-2-118-3

Mendis to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, that's the end of Yuvraj, looking to mow that to midwicket, doesn't get it high enough clear the infield, Sangakkara times his jump well at midwicket to pull off a smart catch

Yuvraj Singh c Sangakkara b Mendis 67 (151m 105b 4x4 2x6) SR: 63.80

India 641/8   Z Khan 1* (9b)   BAW Mendis 37.2-2-162-2

Herath to Khan, OUT, This Indian innings is rapidly heading to a close, Herath picks up another one, his usual delivery turning away from the right-hander takes the outside edge as Zaheer takes a big swing, Mahela Jayawardene at first slip does the rest

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

India 641/9   S Sreesanth 0* (4b)   HMRKB Herath 32.3-2-120-4

Herath to Sreesanth, OUT, Herath takes five, that was the carrom ball, Sreesanth stayed on the backfoot, didn't pick the delivery, struck low on his pads, he's sent on his way

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

India 642/10   PP Ojha 1* (2b)   HMRKB Herath 33-2-121-5
