    42.1 gone first ball! Zaheer doesn't allow much room, just bowls it full and straight, Tharanga chases it with a big swing and no footwork and inside-edges it back onto his stumps 234/4
    7.6 Now Virat Kohli sets a fine example! What a wicket to get, Nehra bangs it in short and Dilshan can't resist the pull, he hits it flat and Kohli sprints to his right from backward square leg, covers a lot of ground and takes the diving catch at long leg, he times his dive perfectly 31/1
    12.5 just what India needed at this stage, Zaheer pitches it up outside off and induces Jayasuriya to lunge forward, the ball takes the outside edge and Tendulkar falls forward and takes it comfortably at first slip, no doubts about that 72/2
    36.3 well stumped, and a loose shot from Sangakkara who hops right across his crease, exposing all the stumps, and misses a paddle sweep, the ball skims past him and Karthik collects, breaking the sticks with one hand as Sangakkara fractionally loses balance, well stumped because he had no time to do the needful 198/3
    47.2 Nehra! First he bowls a good ball, a nice yorker ala Zaheer, Jayawardene falls over it and clips an inside edge onto his left boot, the ball rolls to the off side but he wants the single, Nehra runs across to collect the ball, falls over, but nails down the stumps with a direct hit, there really was no single there, and well fielded Nehra 287/6
    45.1 taken in the deep! Perera's fun little knock ends as he again tries to get under a full ball and slog it away, but he ends up with a top edge that goes very high and settles in Jadeja's hands, running in from wide long-on 271/5

    1.4 gone! Lakmal persists with that shortish length and gets some more good bounce and Sehwag just hops back and pushes a streaky shot to Dilshan at backward point 13/1
    3.4 slapped to cover-point where Randiv takes it! Not really a wicket-taking delivery but Lakmal won't mind because he's taken out the two openers! Tendulkar rocks back to cut it away but cannot keep the ball down and Randiv slides to his left to pouch the catch 23/2

    39.2 skips out and looks to dump this over long-on but ends up miscuing it, its up there for a while and the sub, Pushpakumara, settles under it and cups it just in front of the boundary, ending a very pleasing century from Kohli 247/3
