    1.2 the leg stump has gone for an evening stroll. Ishant follows that corker up with a full and straight delivery, Dilshan looks to make room and play beside the line, the slightest of swings beats him and sends the leg stump cartwheeling. Ishant is all charged up 10/1
    7.5 comes right in front of stumps and sweeps and misses a full delivery, always dangerous that shot as the ball is too full and has hit him on the half volley, right in front of the stumps. Relief for India 91/2
    10.6 and the birthday boy strikes, this time looks to go over midwicket again but gets too much under it and gets more height than distance. Also he is a touch late into the shot, hitting it straighter towards long-on 121/3
    16.1 a feline innings come to an end - almost nine lives he had - plays a pick-up shot from the leg-stump line, and this time Jadeja holds onto it. Yuvraj is personally having a nice 28th birthday 167/6
    12.5 slower ball gets Mahela here, who looks for another six and ends up skying it to long-off where Tyagi takes a safe catch. Smartly bowled, and gives India a chance to pull SL back 141/4
    14.3 Yuvraj gets two on birthday, and again slowing down the pace helps him, Kapugedera looks for the big slog over midwicket, and has no pace to work with, and ends up holing out to deep midwicket. India inching back and trying to keep SL to a manageable total 155/5
    16.2 and Weeraratne is run out, big mix-up as Mathews looks to get off the mark, a slight yes-no means Sehwag's throw beats Weeraratne to striker's end and third umpire is not required 167/7

    5.6 Gambhir has tempted fate once too often, and this partnership ends in an error again. Gambhir's drive to the right of Malinga at mid-off is misfielded. One becomes two. Gambhir wants to turn it into three. Sehwag checks his greed, and sends him back. He is slow in turning back, doesn't dive, the relay throw from Kula is accurate and catches him inches short. Perhaps there were three there and Sehwag wasn't alert 58/1
    10.6 he has holed out in the deep, excellent over for SL, four runs and Sehwag's wicket. Another slower ball, Sehwag's idea is right in going straight but he gets too much elevation and long-on has enough time to come around and hold on to it 108/2
    16.6 superb yorker, inswinging, beating the high backlift. The stumps are in a mess. But the question is, has this come just in time or is too late? 188/3

    18.4 finally they hit the stumps direct. Raina pushes to cover and runs. There is no run in this and Kulasekara underarms it. Raina dives desperately. By the time the bail comes off completely, Raina's bat has reached past the crease but is in the air 200/4
