1.1

Sharma to Dilshan, no run, extra bounce for Ishant, 137ks, just outside off, slightly short of good length, Dilshan goes for the big shot but the ball holds its line and beats him, and it carries chest high to Dhoni

1.2

Sharma to Dilshan, OUT, the leg stump has gone for an evening stroll. Ishant follows that corker up with a full and straight delivery, Dilshan looks to make room and play beside the line, the slightest of swings beats him and sends the leg stump cartwheeling. Ishant is all charged up

TM Dilshan b Sharma 1 (5m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Sharma to Jayasuriya, 1 wide, tries the bounces, misses the line by feet and gives away a wide down the leg side

1.5

Sharma to Jayasuriya, no run, another sharp delivery, 143ks, Jaya sees the width and goes for his upper-cut, but is beaten by the pace and the bounce, throat high for Dhoni this time

1.6

Sharma to Jayasuriya, 2 runs, this would have gone rib-high to second slip, but there is only one slip in place. Another sharp delivery, starts around off, moves away, Jaya pokes at it and gets a thick edge

Sri Lanka 18/1   I Sharma 1-0-8-1

3.1

Sharma to Jayasuriya, no run, Jaya tees of big time, and connects just the air, Ishant has made him play and miss

3.2

Sharma to Jayasuriya, 1 run, Raina saves three this time, that's three more than India saved the other night. It is a good extra-cover drive from Jaya, flying across the outfield, but Raina dives full length and gets a hand to it

3.3

Sharma to Sangakkara, FOUR, another smart shot from Sanga, comes onto the front foot, instead of covers he goes square this time, opening the face and going over point

3.4

Sharma to Sangakkara, FOUR, he can do now wrong it seems, gets an inside edge this time, is late on the drive, but the edge misses both the stumps and the keeper, and flies across to fine-leg boundary

3.5

Sharma to Sangakkara, FOUR, shot of the evening so far, stands tall, just meets a back-of-a-length delivery on the up, just a push, finds the extra-cover gap and it speeds across

3.6

Sharma to Sangakkara, 1 wide, short delivery, and it moves away from Sanga, too far away

3.6

Sharma to Sangakkara, no run, short delivery again but better directed, into the ribs, and Sanga defends it

Sharma to Jayasinghe, 1 leg bye, almost lbw here, he stands in the crease and swings across the line and misses, just shaping down the leg side

12.4

Sharma to Jayawardene, SIX, this is the same shot but played much more classily, clears the front leg, makes clean contact, and picks this length ball over midwicket boundary

12.5

Sharma to Jayawardene, OUT, slower ball gets Mahela here, who looks for another six and ends up skying it to long-off where Tyagi takes a safe catch. Smartly bowled, and gives India a chance to pull SL back
