    0.6 appeal for lbw, and the umpire's given it! This was always on the cards with the amount of swing Yadav was getting. Pitched on leg and straightened, and hit him low on the front pad as he looked to work it into the leg side, head falling over a touch. Good decision from the umpire. That pitched well in line with leg and would have taken a decent chunk of leg stump. 4/1

    10.3 bowled him! It's back of a length and he quickly rocks back to cut. Not much turn on that and it sneaks past his inside edge and crashes into middle and off 55/2
    32.2 oh! what have you done Kumar Sangakkara, that was a full toss, Sangakkara could have dispatched it where he liked, he can only hit it to long-on, where Shikhar Dhawan takes an overhead catch, umpires want to check whether that was above waist high, it wasn't, Umesh gets a big wicket with a boundary-ball 154/4
    13.5 oh, my. That was full on middle stump, and Mahela could have flicked it anywhere he wanted, but he hit it uppishly, and down the throat of Rayudu at deep midwicket 64/3

    35.3 again on the pads, again the sweep, this time it is hit straight to the man at deep backward square leg, easy enough catch that for Ambati Rayudu, nice height, not too far to go but he did have the sun in his eyes 177/5
    35.6 length ball is worked towards deep midwicket, they want to race back for the second, Rayudu races in from the rope, onto the ball quickly, he fires in the return, to Jadeja who breaks the stumps with Priyanjan nowhere near making it, for that second run to be available, the fielder had to make a mistake, he didn't, and Sri Lanka lose another 179/6
    40.2 bowled him! He spears this in full and straight again, not quite yorker length, and Perera slogs across the line, misses, and it runs off his pad into the stumps 205/7
    43.2 bowled him. Randiv looked to make room and hit him over cover, and Ashwin had bowled it a lot slower and given it more air. He's too early into his shot and the ball drops on him and turns in to hit off stump 220/8

    6.3 got him, and what a catch that is from Mahela! Rahane throws his bat at a full ball outside off, and it swings away just a touch and takes his outside edge. It bounces off Sangakkara's gloves, and Jayawardene reacts instantly at slip to dive to his left and pluck it with his left-hand 18/1
    26.4 gone. Dhawan goes for the slog-sweep, doesn't quite pick the right ball for it. It isn't as full as he wants it, and it bounces up and takes his edge, and he pops a simple catch to Priyanjan at deep square leg 140/2

    42.5 got him! That was nicely flighted outside off and Kohli came forward to drive. Dipped on him a bit and he hit it uppishly, and Randiv took a lovely low catch, diving forward 256/3
    44.1 gone! That was an ambitious, slightly casual shot, trying to sweep a very full ball from the stumps. Hit his front pad almost on the half-volley, in front of middle and off, and the umpire has a bit of a think before raising his finger 270/4
