Sri Lanka tour of India, 4th ODI: India v Sri Lanka at Kolkata, Dec 24, 2009
India won by 7 wickets (with 11 balls remaining)
24 December 2009 - day/night match (50-over match)

Nehra to Dilshan, OUT, Now Virat Kohli sets a fine example! What a wicket to get, Nehra bangs it in short and Dilshan can't resist the pull, he hits it flat and Kohli sprints to his right from backward square leg, covers a lot of ground and takes the diving catch at long leg, he times his dive perfectly

TM Dilshan c Kohli b Nehra 9 (19b 1x4 0x6) SR: 47.36

Sri Lanka 31/1   WU Tharanga 19* (29b 2x4 1x6)   A Nehra 4-1-22-1

Khan to Jayasuriya, OUT, just what India needed at this stage, Zaheer pitches it up outside off and induces Jayasuriya to lunge forward, the ball takes the outside edge and Tendulkar falls forward and takes it comfortably at first slip, no doubts about that

ST Jayasuriya c Tendulkar b Khan 15 (15b 3x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Sri Lanka 72/2   WU Tharanga 45* (43b 8x4 1x6)   Z Khan 6.5-0-18-1

Harbhajan Singh to Sangakkara, OUT, well stumped, and a loose shot from Sangakkara who hops right across his crease, exposing all the stumps, and misses a paddle sweep, the ball skims past him and Karthik collects, breaking the sticks with one hand as Sangakkara fractionally loses balance, well stumped because he had no time to do the needful

KC Sangakkara st †Karthik b Harbhajan Singh 60 (72b 5x4 0x6) SR: 83.33

Sri Lanka 198/3   WU Tharanga 107* (113b 14x4 1x6)   Harbhajan Singh 7.3-0-30-1

Khan to Tharanga, OUT, gone first ball! Zaheer doesn't allow much room, just bowls it full and straight, Tharanga chases it with a big swing and no footwork and inside-edges it back onto his stumps

WU Tharanga b Khan 118 (128b 14x4 2x6) SR: 92.18

Sri Lanka 234/4   DPMD Jayawardene 19* (19b 3x4)   Z Khan 7.1-0-18-2

Nehra to Perera, OUT, taken in the deep! Perera's fun little knock ends as he again tries to get under a full ball and slog it away, but he ends up with a top edge that goes very high and settles in Jadeja's hands, running in from wide long-on

NLTC Perera c Jadeja b Nehra 31 (14b 4x4 1x6) SR: 221.42

Sri Lanka 271/5   DPMD Jayawardene 25* (23b 4x4)   A Nehra 6.1-1-45-2

Nehra to Jayawardene, OUT, Nehra! First he bowls a good ball, a nice yorker ala Zaheer, Jayawardene falls over it and clips an inside edge onto his left boot, the ball rolls to the off side but he wants the single, Nehra runs across to collect the ball, falls over, but nails down the stumps with a direct hit, there really was no single there, and well fielded Nehra

DPMD Jayawardene run out 33 (30b 5x4 0x6) SR: 110.00

Sri Lanka 287/6   SHT Kandamby 8* (6b 1x4)   A Nehra 7.2-1-52-2
