    21.6 He got Tendulkar in the last game, he nails Ganguly this time. Tossed up on the middle and off stump, Ganguly, two short of fifty, goes for a sweep shot. No contact and the ball thuds into the front pad, right in front of middle. Dead duck. What a moment for the youngster Bandara! 94/4
    1.6 and he gets him with a lifter! Bounced him, Sehwag stands rooted, waiting for the drive, and is so surprised that he hangs the bat out and the result is a thick edge off the handle that Dilshan, running in a few paces from point, picks up with little trouble 20/1
    4.6 bowled! This one was quicker, on a good length, and Tendulkar is once again beaten by the lack of footwork and drags it back onto his stumps, via bat and then pad, and Kulasekara is ecstatic! 35/2
    16.3 What a tame way to go! The ball stopped on Yuvraj and that did him in. Angled from round the stumps, on middle and leg, Yuvraj tried to turn it to the on side and is surprised as the ball holds up a touch and he gets a leading edge and presents a dolly to mid on. Big breakthrough for SL 83/3
    45.1 Bandara does in Dravid with a clever bit of work. Dhoni smashed a fullish delivery, along the ground, back to Bandara who stretched his right hand out, angled his right palm and deflected it towards the sticks and Dravid is caught short of the crease. Dravid is furious with himself, bangs his bat into the ground and charges out of the arena, muttering to himself. 227/5
