Khan to Dilshan, OUT, What a start for India, Dilshan is gone first ball, shortish ball well outside leg stump, Dilshan closes the face of the bat too early, gets the leading edge which balloons towards debutant Ojha at mid-on, big blow this for Sri Lanka

TM Dilshan c Ojha b Khan 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 0/1   NT Paranavitana 0* (0b)   Z Khan 0.1-0-0-1

Sreesanth to Paranavitana, OUT, gone! Poking at one that moved away from him after pitching, short of a good length, tried to push at it off the back foot, a little away from his body, gets a thick outside edge to Dhoni who takes a sharp catch, diving low to his left

NT Paranavitana c †Dhoni b Sreesanth 38 (129m 84b 6x4 0x6) SR: 45.23

Sri Lanka 82/2   KC Sangakkara 38* (92b 4x4)   S Sreesanth 8.2-1-31-1

Sreesanth to Sangakkara, OUT, bowled'im! Dragged it on, full and wide, reached for a flowing drive through the covers but ended up getting an inside edge onto his stumps

KC Sangakkara b Sreesanth 44 (151m 108b 5x4 0x6) SR: 40.74

Sri Lanka 101/3   DPMD Jayawardene 11* (12b 2x4)   S Sreesanth 10.4-1-41-2

Sreesanth to Samaraweera, OUT, bowled him! Sreesanth hits the good length outside off again, Samaraweera attempts to, he gets a thick bottom edge on to his stumps, it was a bit wide actually and it stayed a touch low

TT Samaraweera b Sreesanth 2 (23m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Sri Lanka 111/4   DPMD Jayawardene 15* (26b 2x4)   S Sreesanth 12.2-2-43-3

Harbhajan Singh to Mathews, OUT, gone! Harbhajan held it back just a hint, got it to pitch on a good length on the off, it held its line and went on straight but Mathews played for turn as he lunged forward to defend, played inside the line, missed and it clipped the bails on its way to the keeper

AD Mathews b Harbhajan Singh 13 (30m 19b 1x4 1x6) SR: 68.42

Sri Lanka 134/5   DPMD Jayawardene 24* (47b 3x4)   Harbhajan Singh 7.5-3-12-1

Sreesanth to HAPW Jayawardene, OUT, Sreesanth gets a wicket with possibly the worst ball of the over, shortish and wide, Prasanna goes after it, nicks it to Dhoni, no repeat of the massive stand between the Jayawardenes

HAPW Jayawardene c †Dhoni b Sreesanth 39 (90m 75b 4x4 1x6) SR: 52.00

Sri Lanka 194/6   DPMD Jayawardene 42* (112b 5x4)   S Sreesanth 17-3-61-4

Ojha to DPMD Jayawardene, OUT, just as I say that, Mahela is gone, he looks to loft Ojha over mid-on, doesn't connect as well as he would have liked after charging down the track, gifts a catch to Tendulkar, a wicket to remember for Ojha

DPMD Jayawardene c Tendulkar b Ojha 47 (189m 125b 6x4 0x6) SR: 37.60

Sri Lanka 204/7   HMRKB Herath 5* (13b 1x4)   PP Ojha 17.2-9-28-1

Sreesanth to Herath, OUT, what a change, gets Herath first ball, length ball angles across the batsman and takes out offstump, thats five for Sreesanth, welcome back

HMRKB Herath b Sreesanth 11 (34m 21b 2x4 0x6) SR: 52.38

Sri Lanka 216/8   M Muralitharan 6* (12b 1x4)   S Sreesanth 20.4-4-72-5

Ojha to Muralitharan, OUT, Murali is gone, lbw, hit low in front of middle, Hawk-Eye shows the ball would have gone on to hit the middle of middle, Ojha gets another, we won't be seeing any of Murali endearing pyrotechnics with the bat today

M Muralitharan lbw b Ojha 6 (31m 27b 1x4 0x6) SR: 22.22

Sri Lanka 219/9   UWMBCA Welegedara 3* (11b)   PP Ojha 21-12-33-2

Harbhajan Singh to Welegedara, OUT, again the change of angle works, pitching on middle and off, turns back into the batsman, struck on the pads, Nigel Llong sends the batsman on his way, and that's the biggest first-innings lead India have ever gained over Sri Lanka

UWMBCA Welegedara lbw b Harbhajan Singh 7 (32m 30b 0x4 0x6) SR: 23.33

Sri Lanka 229/10   BAW Mendis 6* (11b)   Harbhajan Singh 21-5-54-2
