    12.3 he's bowled him, Dilshan comes down the track, and is cramped for room and yorks himself too. Misses, and is bowled 117/2
    6.2 finally they take a catch, and it's Ishant at third man who takes the catch. he should have had both openers out by now. But coming back, this is another bouncer, and Jayasuriya upper-cuts it, straight down the throwat of third man, where Ishant creates semi-drama and takes it inches off the ground 43/1
    19.6 the first good bit of fielding by India, hit down to long-on again, Rohit fumbles again, Sanga comes back for two but the throw is good, and Yusuf deflects it cleverly onto the stumps to catch Sanga short 215/5
    13.3 looks for another late cut, this one is slower in the air, and he is early into the shot, is beaten and the ball shaves the off stump. MJ waits for the replay to just make sure, and is sent on his way 126/3
    18.6 and he has got a wicket with the first slower ball of the night; Kapu swipes across the line and misses. What a nice cameo, had he connected he would have broken Sanga's and MJ's Sri Lanka record for the fastest fifty 195/4

    8.2 too cute for his own good, looks for the paddle again, Mathews it full and fast this time, and out goes the leg stump - one paddle too many from Gambhir 93/2
    2.5 the plan works for Sanga, he has asked him to bowl across Sehwag from round the stumps and with deep point in place. Sehwag goes for the shot and finds the fielder with precision 32/1
    9.2 Dhoni has found the deep midwicket. Jaya bowls over the wicket, Dhoni dances down the track and times the shot well but - just like Sehwag - places the deep fielder to precision 99/3
    10.5 India are coming down in a heap here, length ball, and Yuvraj looks for the straight six. Slight mis-hit, and he has found the long-on fieldsman; Sri Lanka must feel they are home now 105/5
    10.3 he is run out and he is hurt too, Rohit plays a nice drive to the right of Malinga at third man, and hesitates for just one moment while coming back for the second. The throw is right at the top of the stumps, and what's more he has hurt his shoulder while diving 104/4
    13.4 seven down, three to go; Raina steps out and goes straight down the ground. At long-on Dilshan takes a nice, safe catch at long-on 129/7
    11.5 and then there were six, Pathan goes for the big hit too, and gets the toe part of the bat, skying it towards Malinga at long-on 115/6
    19.2 and he has bowled him, with a flat delivery, Dinda slogs again and misses. Can Dilshan finish this before the scheduled finish? 173/9
    17.5 Nehra is run out. He just hits and runs, but Fernando does well to field it to his right and run the stumps down with a direct-hit 167/8
