View dismissal WU Tharanga c †Dhoni b Kumar 11 28 29 2 0 37.93
6.6 82.0 mph, this one will carry alright, and the angle has worked for Bhuvi, the last one held its line, this one comes in from short of a length and bounces, Tharanga leans out half forward, is completely cramped by the angle and Dhoni takes the inside edge 27/1
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene c Ashwin b Kumar 22 57 28 2 1 78.57
13.1 80.8 mph, oh dear, Mahela's just guided this tamely to the lone slip, it was a nothing delivery, a wide one moving away a bit, Mahela could have done a lot with it, he went rather softly at it with an open face, did all those Ishant short balls have anything to do with this? 49/2
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c Vinay Kumar b Ashwin 71 126 100 6 1 71.00
39.1 53.0 mph, Sanga's gone, big strike, Ashwin stops and bowls a tossed up full delivery, Sanga could not get under it as he tried to loft it, and mid on took a high, tumbling catch 174/4
View dismissal HDRL Thirimanne c Kumar b I Sharma 46 89 72 4 0 63.88
37.5 83.1 mph, gone this time, walks out, makes some room outside leg, and slogs at a short ball, mid off runs back to his left and takes it 171/3
View dismissal AD Mathews* c Vinay Kumar b I Sharma 10 31 24 0 0 41.66
45.2 82.7 mph, now Mathews goes, a short ball outside leg stump, Mathews made lots of room, and gave it a heave, ended up slicing it to third man, nothing shot 193/7
View dismissal MDKJ Perera st †Dhoni b Ashwin 2 1 4 0 0 50.00
39.5 44.7 mph, Perera has been duped all too easily, he's walked down to a juicily tossed up ball, missed it with all the turn and bounce, and Dhoni's moved across to do the rest, that bounced too much 176/5
View dismissal LD Chandimal c Ashwin b Jadeja 5 7 7 0 0 71.42
42.2 57.8 mph, Sri Lanka are crumbling, Chandimal's swept in the air, he's made good connection, but picked out deep backward square leg to perfection 183/6
View dismissal HMRKB Herath st †Dhoni b Jadeja 5 18 10 0 0 50.00
46.1 Dhoni's missed the stumping on the first attempt, but that has ended up helping him get the wicket, Herath missed a sweep, Dhoni collected but could not break the stumps on the first attempt, Herath was in at that time, but he lost balance and went out, Dhoni was alert enough to spot that and did not miss the second time, an unusually vigorous appeal from him suggests he rather enjoyed that 196/8
RMS Eranga not out 5 17 12 0 0 41.66
View dismissal SL Malinga c Kumar b Jadeja 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
46.3 56.7 mph, skips out, tries to go big but skies it, Bhuvneshar charges in from long off, extra cover runs across too, but Bhuvneshwar has judged it superbly and avoided the fielder as well 196/9
View dismissal RAS Lakmal st †Dhoni b Jadeja 1 8 5 0 0 20.00
48.5 50.7 mph, that is it, he walks out and misses outside off, Dhoni gathers, Lakmal is so far down he does not even look back, Dhoni waits and removes the bail finally 201/10

View dismissal RG Sharma b Herath 58 146 89 5 1 65.16
31.1 52.9 mph, he is gone! it has hit the middle stump just a couple of inches from the base. Stayed very low after pitching on length, Rohit was rightly crouching down because the ball was indeed very very low, unlike some of his Mumbai predecessors. Is this the opening that Sri Lanka need? 139/4
View dismissal S Dhawan c †Sangakkara b Eranga 16 38 35 2 0 45.71
8.4 82.2 mph, he is gone, he gets a brute of a delivery! It was on short of length and reared up surprising Dhawan with the bounce. He tried to get away from the line, but it was too late as he was already shaping to play it on the front foot. He walks back disappointed, but Sri Lanka are happy, it's a big breakthrough and early in the innings 23/1
View dismissal V Kohli c †Sangakkara b Eranga 2 8 5 0 0 40.00
10.4 84.9 mph, loud appeal for caught behind, which after some time, the umpire gives. There was a loud noise when the ball went past the bat and the only doubt was if that had carried to the keeper. Once the square leg umpire nodded, it was curtains for Kohli. Beautiful delivery again, on a length outside off and just straightening enough to take the outside edge. There wasn't not much of a forward stride by the batsman there 27/2
View dismissal KD Karthik c Jayawardene b Herath 23 58 37 3 0 62.16
22.6 54.6 mph, that flies, that really flies but Mahela Jayawardene is standing in the way at slip and it ends up as catch No 201, DK tried to punch this off the back foot, it hurries on from a length, and the thick edge races to Mahela, he does well to hang on somehow 77/3
View dismissal SK Raina c †Sangakkara b Lakmal 32 51 27 1 1 118.51
34.1 82.1 mph, and now Raina follows! Sri Lanka are indeed pulling the rug under India's batsmen's feet! Raina went for a hoick to the leg side, but the length delivery took a decent edge and flew at a comfortable height to the left of the keeper 145/5
MS Dhoni*† not out 45 98 52 5 2 86.53
View dismissal RA Jadeja lbw b Herath 5 15 14 0 0 35.71
37.1 57.0 mph, and another one for Herath! Jadeja has been taken out! The weight of the remaining 50 runs is getting heavier on the Indians. It was a flatter delivery and Jadeja went on the back foot, but it pitched on off and spun back sharply into the batsman to hit him on the back leg. Easy decision for the umpire 152/6
View dismissal R Ashwin lbw b Herath 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
37.2 51.7 mph, two in two! Herath does it again, he bowls a quicker arm ball and the batsman gets stuck in the crease as he tries to defend. He misses the line of the ball and gets hit in front of the leg stump. The umpire raises the finger of doom... 152/7
View dismissal B Kumar lbw b Malinga 0 21 15 0 0 0.00
41.5 74.8 mph, He's gone! he's gone! It's a yorker, yes, but it's slower too! Bhuvi's bat came down a touch too early and he gets hit on the toe, right in front... 167/8
View dismissal R Vinay Kumar c sub (SMSM Senanayake) b Mathews 5 25 16 0 0 31.25
46.2 80.2 mph, caught at short third man! What a terrible shot to play at this stage! It was a shortish delivery outside off and Vinay chooses to send it to the stands, gets a thick edge and the ball balloons for the fielder at short third man to take an easy catch. When he got five balls in this over, was he planning to finish the match here itself? Absurd 182/9
