    41.3 that's a double strike and Dilshan misses a well-deserved century, Jayawardene softly taps it towards Rohit at cover point and there's confusion about the single, Dilshan turns back but there's a direct hit by Rohit and he's way short of his ground 255/4
    10.1 that's a poor shot, he steps down the track and Irfan digs it short on seeing him advance, Jayasuriya gets a top edge and Raina takes it at mid-off, very tame dismissal that 66/1
    32.5 Sangakkara attempts another slog over the on side but he fails to get under this one, this one is slower through the air and Sangakkara slogs a little too early, Rohit runs from long-off and takes the catch sliding forward 209/2
    41.2 comes over the wicket, Ishant lands it bang on middle and the ball straightens, Kandamby's beaten for pace and the ball clips the top of middle stump, not sure if Kandamby actually picked it off the pitch as he was totally squared up 255/3
    42.1 another one bites the dust, Yuvraj flights it on the off stump ever so slowly, Jayawardene tamely chips it towards Raina at short cover who dives and takes the catch 256/6
    41.6 India are hitting back here, Ishant lands it on the corridor outside off and tempts Kapugedera in to poking at it, there's a thin edge to Dhoni and Kapugedera walks back for a first-ball duck 256/5
    49.3 he goes for an across the line swipe and mistimes it to deep square leg, Jadeja is very impressive as he runs across and fires the throw to Dhoni who whips off the bails, the third umpire takes a look 315/8
    45.5 Ishant bowls the slower ball, Thushara stands outside his crease but fails to get under the low full toss properly and ends up chipping it tamely back to the bowler, there was no reaction at all from Ishant after taking the catch, it wouldn't have occured to most people that it was actually a catch 277/7

    8.2 and the setup has trapped Gambhir as well, Sangakkara is up to the stumps as usual, Gambhir stands a little outside leg stump to give himself room to swing him over the top but he gets a thin edge 52/3
    1.4 poor shot by Sehwag after banging him for four the previous ball, Thushara pitches it a little fuller, he shapes to clear mid-off but the ball travels off the splice of the bat to Jayasuriya who runs to his left and cups it over his head 8/1
    2.2 Kulasekara strikes and the Sri Lankans deserve credit for setting it up, Raina prods forward to a delivery which shapes away, he gets a fairly thick edge and Sangakkara, who's up to the stumps, takes it easily, the plan was to put Raina under pressure with the keeper up to the stumps and it has paid off 9/2
    21.1 Murali gets the danger man! He delivers from over the wicket and Yuvraj gets on his knee too early for the slog, he gets a tame top edge and Murali runs to his left and takes the skier 121/5
    14.6 Rohit goes for broke and pays the price, it wasn't short enough to pull but Rohit goes ahead with the shot and gets a thick top edge to Kulasekara at mid-on 85/4
    36.1 Dhoni tries to take Jayasuriya downtown but he fails to get the elevation, he gives him he charge and lands it down Kulasekara's throat at long-on 193/7
    25.1 Murali comes from round the wicket and lands it on a full length on off and middle, Yusuf gets forward to defend but the ball clips him low on the pad, the umpire doesn't take too long to give that out 138/6

    42.4 Irfan makes room, Mendis bowls it short, Irfan tries to carve it over the infield on the off side, Kapugedera pedals backwards from cover point and takes the catch 217/8
    46.5 and Kulasekara takes his fourth catch, Balaji chips down the track and tries to launch him over long-on but only just fails to clear the rope, Kulasekara takes it easily 243/9
    48.5 Maharoof hits the leg stump and it's all over, Ishant makes room and goes for a huge heave ho over the on side but misses it completely 252/10
