    2.2 gone!! Banged in short on middle and Dilshan goes for the pull, gets the top edge and Ishant and fine leg makes no mistake. Big wicket as Dilshan has been in good form. Well thought out by Zaheer and Co. 15/1
    6.2 slightly wayward but highly effective, short and wide, Jayasuriya tries to cut that over point, gets a thick outside edge that flies away towards Pragyan Ojha at third man who takes a well judged catch. The bowling change works, and SL have some work to do now. 33/2
    7.3 gone! That's an excellent catch! Full outside off and Sangakkara chases it, it was going away with the angle and took the outside edge as he went for the drive. Tendulkar pouched it smartly at slip as Dhoni, who was diving to his left to clasp that, would have blocked his view. Sri Lanka are now in trouble 36/3
    34.2 sharp catch at extra cover! Ojha tosses it on middle and leg, Jayawardene makes room and dances down, looking to go inside-out over the circle, but he doesn't get the desired elevation and finds Yusuf at extra cover, who takes a good low catch to snap a 100-run stand 136/4

    42.2 edged and taken, Kapugedera charges down the track to smash it over the bowler's head, Ishant pitches it full and gets the ball to move away late off the pitch, Kapugedera fails to cover the movement and gets a thin edge to Dhoni 187/5
    44.1 the yorker consumes him this time, Ishant fires it in middle stump straight on the blockhole, Maharoof makes room but fails to get his bat down and the ball crashes on to his middle stump, Ishant says 'thank you' after getting the wicket after Maharoof's great escape in the previous over 206/6
    46.4 the slower ball this time and Thushara doesn't read it at all, he shapes to scoop it over the bowler's head but gets into the stroke too early, Yusuf runs across to his right from mid-on and takes an easy catch 228/7
    47.6 Murali first makes room and places it straight to Yusuf at midwicket who spills the catch, he fires the throw to Zaheer who whips off the bails, Murali didnt take off for the run but Kandamby was already at his end, Murali was caught ball watching and in the end sacrificed his wicket 236/8
    48.6 very easy for Dhoni, Kandamby makes room to swing but he misses it completely, Kulasekara takes off for the run but Dhoni under-arms ball onto the stumps and catches him well short of his crease 237/9
    49.2 lofts the ball just in front of long-off, the throw is fired to Dhoni and this time he hits the stumps firmly enough to dislodge both the bails, there's no need for the third umpire as Mendis is well short of his ground 241/10
