    0.1 bowled em! What a terrific start for Zaheer, who pitches the ball up to Tharanga and seams the ball back in from around outside off stump, beats a loose forward push, and clips the top of middle 0/1
    10.5 edged and gone, superb bowling! Having beaten the edge already this over, Zaheer brings his line fractionally closer to middle and off and shapes it away, making Dilshan play, and the angle draws a nick through to Dhoni 39/2
    16.4 he's a dead duck! Harbhajan makes no time in striking, bowling a flatter, quicker ball on off stump that goes on straight, the top spinner, which doesn't bounce and hits middle and leg as Jayasuriya gets the bat down too late 60/4
    15.1 in the air and taken at cover! First wicket in ODIs for Tyagi, who pitches it up and gets Sangakkara chasing on the rise, he fails to keep the ball down and Raina catches 58/3
    17.6 terrible call for a run and Samaraweera goes! Good bowling, just back of a length, Kandamby goes back, opens the face and dabs the ball toward cover and sets off without looking at his partner, Samaraweera gets a late start and struggles to get down, Raina runs to his left from point, collects, and nails the sticks with a one-bounce direct hit 63/5
