    79.6 both Sehwag and Gambhir perish to poor shots, Gambhir decides to give him the charge and loft against the spin, he doesn't get to the pitch of the ball and ends up splicing it high in the air to mid-off, Prasad jogs back and takes it, there's no real need to charge the bowlers when you're trying to save a game 275/4
    16.6 rush of blood and it's a very tame dismissal, the ball was tossed up generously on the off stump and invited the big hit, Sehwag was on his knee to slog but failed to get to the pitch of it, the top edge landed down Mathews' throat at mid-on 81/1
    40.1 lbw!! Welegedara goes round the wicket and angles a full ball into Dravid who leans across to flick, he misses and the ball thuds into his pad, the Sri Lankans appeal in unision and Harper sends Dravid on his way, replays show the ball clipping the outside of leg stump, close call 169/2
    55.6 sharp catch! Dilshan at leg gully! Mathews straightens his length and Mishra plays a very good-looking clip off the pads but Dilshan tumbles to his right and takes a one-handed blinder very low to the ground, at full stretch, and then lies on his back as his team-mates crowd around 209/3
