0.3 and already a wicket. This is short and wide, ripe for a cut, but Perera looks to pull it, gets a healthy top edge, and Karn Sharma takes a simple catch at mid-on 0/1
    9.4 Raina is flying at short cover again, and he is coming up with balls in hand. Short of a length, around off, Dilshan looks to work this to leg but is early into the shot. The leading edge goes to the right of short cover, but not beyond the reach of Raina's dive 48/4
    5.6 another wicket down. That man at short cover does it. Binny has done well whenever he has pitched the ball up. This is a teasing length. Not the driving length, but it teases Chandimal, who ends up pushing at it well in front of his body. Easy catch for Raina at short cover 31/2
    8.2 Mahela doesn't look happy with this, but this is a pretty good decision. Yadav is full and straight, Jayawardene is deep in the crease, and plays across its line. This looks good to hit leg stump as it has hit his pad in front of middle and leg and doesn't have too far to travel 42/3
    28.5 lovely stumping by Uthappa. Mathews is down the wicket again, Patel pulls the length back, Mathews tries to defend, is hit on the inside edge, the ball ricochets to Uthappa, who gets a good bounce, and completes the stumping 166/5
    36.2 he goes to pull a ball that is not short enough, and one that he has to drag from well outside off. Top-edges it to midwicket 218/6
    36.5 two wicket in an over for Kulkarni. Short of a length, middle and leg, Perera looks to open the face, gets a faint edge though to Uthappa 219/7
    38.4 Kulkarni has four wickets now. Pulled away to find deep square leg to perfection. This is ending fast 233/9
    38.1 Kulkarni gets a third wicket. Kulasekara just closes his eyes and swings across the line, doesn't make a sweet connection, and is caught at deep midwicket 229/8
    43.1 he switch-hits to his demise. They have ended 13 runs short of Rohit Sharma's score. This match was over long ago. The final touch is provided by this switch hit straight to what would have been deep cover had he played as a right-hand batsman 251/10
