View dismissal V Sehwag c †Sangakkara b Kulasekara 42 52 27 7 0 155.55
10.4 that's No. 301 for Sanga, Kulasekara is over the moon, it's Sehwag's wicket! Dug in short, Sehwag looks to upper-cut it, but it follows him and the edge nestles in Sanga's gloves 60/5
View dismissal G Gambhir b Kulasekara 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
0.3 freak dismissal, a length ball on the pads, Gambhir misses on the flick, the ball hits the protruding thigh pad and ricochets on to the leg stump. The scorebook will say: Gambhir b Kulasekara 0 1/1
View dismissal V Kohli c †Sangakkara b Welegedara 2 6 8 0 0 25.00
1.6 he's gone! poor shot, cuts away at a wide delivery without any feet movement, and edges it through, this one didn't come in with the angle, rather held its line. Kohli had been edgy through his brief stay, and such a loose shot was always around the corner 4/2
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c Samaraweera b Welegedara 0 8 3 0 0 0.00
3.3 and then there were three, Yuvraj goes chasing, and Samaraweera takes a good catch at second slip. Yuvraj's feet are rooted as he goes for this cut shot, and he ends up playing awkwardly and away from the body, the edge in but natural. Samaraweera times his jump at second slip to perfection and takes a nice overhead catch 16/3
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c †Sangakkara b Kulasekara 14 23 19 3 0 73.68
8.5 edged and taken! Dhoni cannot contain himself, again going for a drive to the off but this time he doesn't get to the pitch of a ball just fractionally held back on length and twirls a little nick to Sangakkara who takes it low to his left 47/4
View dismissal SK Raina b Welegedara 106 152 115 10 1 92.17
45.3 that's his first unsmart shot of the innings, takes the risk, goes for the slog, misses, and the ball is full and straight and hits the middle of middle 237/9
View dismissal RA Jadeja lbw b Dilshan 38 93 64 0 0 59.37
34.2 he's gone, skidder, what a big strike by Dilshan, he doesn't even bother appealing. it's bowled from colse the stumps, Jadeja defends, playing for the spin, the ball - just changed - skids on with the arm, and he appeals only as a second thought because it's dead plumb. Good hand by Jadeja, though 166/6
View dismissal Harbhajan Singh lbw b Randiv 11 31 26 0 0 42.30
42.5 another wicket down, sweeps all over a topspinner, misses and it's head damn straight, he is hit smack in front of the stumps 213/7
View dismissal Z Khan c Samaraweera b Kulasekara 16 10 8 2 1 200.00
44.5 it's hit like a bullet towards Samaraweera at extra cover, and he takes his second nice catch of the day, fingers pointing up, body leaning back slightly, absorbing the force of the shot through soft hands, India eight down 233/8
A Nehra not out 2 18 3 0 0 66.66
View dismissal S Sreesanth b Perera 4 12 15 0 0 26.66
48.2 and he is bowled right away! full and straight, and he plays across, away from the line of the ball, and India are bowled out 245/10
