    4.2 Jayawardene was hit on the pads on the back foot and the umpire was convinced that was hitting the leg stump, he was back at the crease trying to nudge it away, he shuffled across the crease, didn't look too pleased with the decision though, it hit him above the knee roll so it was a marginal call 35/3
    0.5 Dilshan goes first ball! And Pathan deserves all the credit here, he swings it in late and Dilshan tries to work it across the line and he's beaten, the ball hits the middle and leg stump. This delivery has fetched Pathan several wickets 7/1
    2.1 Pathan nips out two early! This wasn't the best ball, not the best shot either, he chased a wide delivery swinging away from the off stump, got a thick outside edge to first slip 14/2
    9.1 well Thirimanne simply threw it away, he goes for the reverse sweep and the ball skids onto his stumps, Ashwin was bowling from round the wicket, he will feel a bit silly after seeing the replay, Thirimanne tried that shot against Pakistan too recently and it didn't exactly come off too well 68/4
    12.6 edged! Well the bowling change worked, Dinda pitched it up and invited the drive through the off side, Mathews made room but got a thin edge to Dhoni 96/5
    14.3 soft dismissal! Yadav pitched it up outside the off stump and had Mendis driving, chipped it tamely to Rahane at short cover, cupped it over his head, the momentum is firmly with India here 100/6
    17.2 and with that SL lose their last recognised batsman, full on middle and off, he made room to loft it down the ground but mistimed it, Kohli ran to his right from long-off and took it on the fall 116/8
    15.2 appeal for a run out, there's a direct hit and he's gone, Perera chopped it down to point and set off and was sent back, the throw from Tiwary was flat and sharp and on the stumps, Perera couldn't ground his bat on time, third umpire takes a look 102/7
    17.4 Eranga goes for the big hit and he miscues it as well, it was in the air for a long time and Ashwin at long-off only just managed to catch it 116/9
    17.6 and India round it off comprehensively! No last-minute panic tonight, Malinga backed away and tried to hook a short ball, got the top edge and Dhoni jogged to his left and took the catch 116/10
