    38.3 run-out, terrific work from Udana, he might not have done too well with the ball, but his slide-rule throw could well have taken this game out of India's grasp, Gambhir pushed that towards mid-on and set off for a quick single, Udana was onto the ball and a direct hit catches Gambhir short, third umpire was called for, but Sangakkara in the dressing room was already signalling that it was out even before the replays came up, that's the 14th time Gambhir has been run out 196/5
    1.4 Sehwag falls early, looking to swing it through the cover but ends up giving an overhead catch to the substitute fielder at cover, as in the second match Perera removes Sehwag cheaply, Perera continues to find one-day cricket easy 8/1

    20.5 there's the wicket Sri Lanka were looking for, Kohli was looking to punch that short of length ball off the back foot, he tapped it straight back to Herath, who gleefully accepts the chance, it ws looking very easy for the Indian batsmen over the past hour or so 113/2
    35.1 and what a comeback, one of those deadly yorkers that confound batsmen so often, Dhoni looked to squeeze that one out but can't get bat in the way, crashes into the stumps, once again Sri Lanka strikes just when a partnership seemed to be calmly guiding India's chase. 180/3
    35.2 oh my goodness, all that build-up over Rohit v Tiwary, Rohit is gone for a golden duck, a full, swinging delivery from Malinga is too good for Rohit, he was looking to work it to the leg side, he misses and that strikes his just above the boot, and his critics will have plenty more to say now, and Malinga is doing his bit to silence those questioning his performances against India 180/4
