Harbhajan Singh to Paranavitana, OUT, Harbhajan has struck. He has been bowling really well and has got the breakthrough. Paranavitana, who was looking so good, is gone. It was a loopy flighted delivery around the off stump and Paranavitana edged his attempted cover drive to first slip. Done by the dip.

NT Paranavitana c Dravid b Harbhajan Singh 53 (94m 81b 7x4 0x6) SR: 65.43

Sri Lanka 93/1   TM Dilshan 37* (40b 5x4 1x6)   Harbhajan Singh 4.5-1-9-1

Ojha to Sangakkara, OUT, And he has been strangled down the leg side. What a way to go. This one was turning down leg side, going past his hips when Sanga tried to glance but got a faint tickle through to a delighted Dhoni, who takes a neat catch

KC Sangakkara c †Dhoni b Ojha 18 (35m 35b 2x4 0x6) SR: 51.42

Sri Lanka 128/2   TM Dilshan 54* (71b 7x4 1x6)   PP Ojha 7.5-0-38-1

Sreesanth to DPMD Jayawardene, OUT, Done in by the bouncer. Yuvraj hugs Sreesanth. It was the short-pitched delivery, Mahela swivels to pull but top edges it straight to deep backward square-leg. Just reward for a fine spell.

DPMD Jayawardene c Sehwag b Sreesanth 29 (67m 63b 4x4 0x6) SR: 46.03

Sri Lanka 187/3   TM Dilshan 84* (109b 10x4 1x6)   S Sreesanth 8.4-1-37-1

Harbhajan Singh to Samaraweera, OUT, Samaraweera walks after edging. Almost Ponting like dismissal, if you know what I mean. It was flighted outside off on a length, Samaraweera lunged forward to defend and got a bat and pad to short leg. Double strike and India are back in the game. Much depends on Dilshan who has played a fab knock so far. He has to carry on for a really big innings

TT Samaraweera c Vijay b Harbhajan Singh 1 (5m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Sri Lanka 188/4   TM Dilshan 84* (110b 10x4 1x6)   Harbhajan Singh 14.1-2-41-2

Harbhajan Singh to Dilshan, OUT, Dilshan is not too happy. Given out caught at short-leg. Oh dear oh dear .. what a poor decision by Llong. It turned in and Dilshan stretched forward to defend. The ball was long away from the gloves or the bat and bounded straight off the pad. Oh what a crucial moment this. He played so well so far. But he has to go now.

TM Dilshan c Vijay b Harbhajan Singh 109 (278m 160b 10x4 2x6) SR: 68.12

Sri Lanka 262/5   AD Mathews 47* (51b 8x4)   Harbhajan Singh 23-2-80-3

Ojha to HAPW Jayawardene, OUT, moves down the track but is beaten in flight and hits it straight to mid-on. Ojha shouts out few words at the departing batsman.

HAPW Jayawardene c Harbhajan Singh b Ojha 43 (61m 47b 6x4 1x6) SR: 91.48

Sri Lanka 329/6   AD Mathews 67* (96b 11x4)   PP Ojha 23-1-97-2

Khan to Kulasekara, OUT, Finally Zaheer lands one on target and gets a wicket. It was full in length, moving away from Kulasekara who gets a thin edge through to Dhoni

KMDN Kulasekara c †Dhoni b Khan 12 (27m 15b 3x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

Sri Lanka 359/7   AD Mathews 80* (111b 12x4)   Z Khan 18-1-70-1

Harbhajan Singh to Herath, OUT, one more down as the shadows lengthen. It was around the off stump line, Rangana goes for the sweep and it goes off the toe end of the bat to first slip where Dravid takes a good tumbling catch

HMRKB Herath c Dravid b Harbhajan Singh 1 (11m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 8.33

Sri Lanka 362/8   AD Mathews 82* (113b 12x4)   Harbhajan Singh 28.2-2-107-4

Sreesanth to Mathews, 1 run, OUT, Oh what has he done... got himself run out going for the second run. he had pulled a bouncer to deep square-leg and turned for the risky second. Tendulkar with the throw .. comes on top of the stumps and Dhoni breaks the stumps with Angelo just outside the crease ..It was referred upstairs.and the verdict is OUT. Well played sir but what a way to go when you are near your debut ton.. Close but no cigar.

AD Mathews run out 99 (200m 131b 15x4 0x6) SR: 75.57

Sri Lanka 379/9   M Muralitharan 0* (14b)   S Sreesanth 15.4-1-78-1

Ojha to Welegedara, OUT, trapped in front of middle and leg, skids on from a length, straightens around leg and middle to hit the pad .. would have hit the leg stump

UWMBCA Welegedara lbw b Ojha 8 (5m 6b 2x4 0x6) SR: 133.33

Sri Lanka 393/10   M Muralitharan 4* (20b 1x4)   PP Ojha 23.4-1-101-3
