2.4 81.6 mph, Bhuvneshwar strikes early once more, Perera falls early once more, this was pitched up and outside off, swinging away, asking to be driven, Perera looks to punch it through extra cover, a thick outside edge results and that ball flies at a comfortable height to Raina at second slip, Bhuvneshwar getting the ball to swing here 6/1
TM Dilshan not out 18 38 21 2 0 85.71

17.6 82.8 mph, another catch at second slip, Raina it is again, pouches another left-hander, Ishant got the delivery to jag away sharply, Sangakkara has left so many deliveries like this one today, but is sucked into playing at it and he nicks it through, Sri Lanka in serious trouble now, how good a toss was this to win? 41/3
View dismissal HDRL Thirimanne c Raina b I Sharma 7 50 31 1 0 22.58
15.2 84.8 mph, another catch for Raina at second slip, a far tougher chance than the one to dismiss Perera, Ishant gets the ball to seam away from back of a length, Thirimanne follows the ball and pokes at it, the ball zips through low to Raina's right, Raina reacts quickly to take a sharp catch, India get the wicket they were searching for 36/2
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene b Jadeja 38 83 63 3 0 60.31
36.1 58.9 mph, Jadeja's magic season continues, he's got the huge wicket of Mahela Jayawardene, this one was fired in by Jadeja, drags it down, it skids on lower than Mahela expects, Mahela was looking to mow that towards midwicket, he misses and that crashes into the stumps 119/4
View dismissal AD Mathews* c Kumar b Ashwin 51 104 89 1 1 57.30
45.5 53.8 mph, Ashwin gets him this time, the carrom ball does the job, Mathews again looking for the big hit over the leg side, he edges it once more and the ball swirls towards cover where Bhuvneshwar settles under it and pouches it safely 158/5
View dismissal BMAJ Mendis st †Dhoni b Ashwin 25 51 35 1 0 71.42
49.1 54.1 mph, and another one for Ashwin, he pauses again before he delivers the ball, Mendis wanted to power that to midwicket but he doesn't connect, he's caught a long way out of the crease, Dhoni has enough time to remove the bails 171/8
View dismissal NLTC Perera c Dhawan b I Sharma 0 5 4 0 0 0.00
46.5 85.1 mph, this time he connects, but not well enough to clear the man at deep midwicket, Ishant continues to keep it short, Perera swipes and can't clear the long boundary and he's gone for a duck, three man in the deep there but he still backed himself to get a six 160/6
View dismissal KMDN Kulasekara b Ashwin 1 5 3 0 0 33.33
47.5 52.6 mph, ho ho ho! what a wicket that is, Ashwin - an offspinner - has got Kulasekara bowled round his legs, the carrom ball from Ashwin, pitching outside leg, Kulasekara lets it go thinking he'll get a wide, instead the ball turns in and that clips leg stump on its way to Dhoni, Sri Lanka lose another one 164/7
