India v Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka won by 3 wickets (with 5 balls remaining)

0.4

Welegedara to Sehwag, OUT, Welegedera takes out Sehwag. Quite similar delivery but he didn't leave this one alone. He went for the flashy cut, was cramped up for room and edged it behind. Sanga flew to his right to pouch a very good catch. The Big fish has been caught.

V Sehwag c †Sangakkara b Welegedara 4 (3m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

India 4/1   SR Tendulkar 0* (0b)   UWMBCA Welegedara 0.4-0-4-1

4.1

Welegedara to Gambhir, OUT, Gambhir is run out Gambhir isn't too happy as he had collided with the bowler. But the bowler didn't do it deliberately. He was backing up, back pedaling away from the stumps, and Gambhir tried to go around him but bang.. clash and he couldn't get into the crease in time. The mid-on fielder fired in a direct hit. It was refered upstairs and the correct verdict has been given.

G Gambhir run out 2 (18m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

India 19/2   SR Tendulkar 12* (15b 1x4)   UWMBCA Welegedara 2.1-0-6-1

16.5

Mendis to Tendulkar, OUT, Mendis gets SRT stumped. It was the loopy two-fingered googly, turns in from a short of length and outside off. Tendulkar was down the track and went for the big heave-ho over the infield but wafted inside the line. Done in by the shortening of the length and by the fact that this one didn't break back in as much as a regular googly. He couldn't adjust quickly enough after he failed to reach the pitch of the ball.

SR Tendulkar st †Sangakkara b Mendis 43 (76m 52b 4x4 0x6) SR: 82.69

India 81/3   V Kohli 31* (39b 5x4)   BAW Mendis 2.5-0-13-1

26.3

Randiv to Kohli, OUT, trapped in front. It turned in from outside off stump, Kohli walked across to try to work it to the on side for a single but missed it and was struck in line with the stumps. Hawk eye says it would have hit the top of the middle stump.

V Kohli lbw b Randiv 54 (93m 65b 7x4 0x6) SR: 83.07

India 132/4   MS Dhoni 24* (32b 1x4)   S Randiv 2.3-0-10-1

46.2

Mathews to Raina, OUT, Another slow short delivery and Raina goes for the pull but sends it straight to deep midwicket. Fine innings comes to an end.

SK Raina c Randiv b Mathews 68 (78m 55b 4x4 3x6) SR: 123.63

India 258/5   MS Dhoni 77* (96b 4x4 2x6)   AD Mathews 8.2-1-38-1

49.3

Randiv to Dhoni, OUT, A tired looking Dhoni holes out to deep midwicket. He went down the track and heaved it straight to Dilshan. The crowd are up on their feet to applaud the Indian captain.

MS Dhoni c Dilshan b Randiv 107 (135m 111b 8x4 2x6) SR: 96.39

India 300/6   RA Jadeja 11* (4b 2x4)   S Randiv 9.3-0-50-2

49.6

Randiv to Harbhajan Singh, OUT, Harbhajan goes down the track, the bowler floats it further outside off and Harbhajan can't get bat to ball with his slog. Sangakkara does the rest

Harbhajan Singh st †Sangakkara b Randiv 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 301/7   RA Jadeja 12* (6b 2x4)   S Randiv 10-0-51-3
