    2.6 as far as return catches go, it can't get simpler than that. Bhuvneshwar's first wicket of the series. This is a knuckleball, the variation in pace does Dickwella in as he looks to flick but this one just stops on him and he ends up chipping it back to the bowler on his followthrough. 14/1
    9.2 what a comeback! The party is over and this is a beauty that has nipped him out. This one pitched at length on leg stump, deviated just a wee bit to square Tharanga up completely as he looked to play towards the on side, only managed a thin edge as Dhoni gobbled up that straightforward offering. 63/3
    6.2 sensational from Kohli! He was back-pedalling from mid-off but never lost sight of the ball. This was lofted as Munaweera made room to loft, but didn't get under the length properly - this was another knuckleball - which meant he didn't get the power he would've liked. Kohli timed his jump well, even with the momentum taking him back furiously, to pull it off. 40/2
    38.5 played on! The highest fourth-wicket stand v India is over. The angle has done the trick for Bhuvi. This length ball nipped back in to cramp him for room as he tried to dab this to third man, but the ball came back in enough to sneak back in onto the stumps off the inside edge. Bhuvneshwar has his third. 185/4
    41.1 what a soft dismissal that. Kuldeep has the last laugh and he's got the big wicket. Mathews gave away his intention of playing the lap sweep too early, so the bowler shortened his length just a little, this was also the wrong'un. Mathews still went through with it, only get a leading edge to Dhoni. 194/5
    47.2 Shardul redeems himself this time. High full toss on middle, he looks to whip this over square but skews it towards deep midwicket, where Thakur comes in quite some distance to complete the catch. He was on the move, but held his composure as he pouched that safely. 228/9
    42.6 dropped, bus still out. Wow MS Dhoni has the presence of mind to quickly hare across and then pick the ball up and hurl a rocket throw at the bowler's end to run out Hasaranga. So five seconds after an opportunity goes down, Dhoni makes up for it. Neatly gathered by Chahal as well. Why would you run for it, Hasaranga? He shaped to cut, got thick edge that fell out after hitting Dhoni's thigh and deflected to the leg side. Normally you wouldn't even call it a chance. Anyway, Sri Lanka have lost two in quick succession. It could perhaps delay their slog. 205/6
    44.6 this is simply reward for persistence. Nice flight, this is a top-spinner that goes straight on as it dips on Dananjaya's forward defence after he skipped out. Dhoni effects his 100th stumping as the ball shaved past the inside edge. Couldn't have asked for an easier one to get there. What a collapse. Who would've thought they'd be scrapping for 230 when 270 was a given at one stage? 212/7
    46.5 cleaned him up. This is a poor old-fashioned slog. Bumrah slipped in a high full toss that dipped, the batsman's head fell over completely as he looked to swing this over midwicket. Off and middle stump took a royal knock. 228/8

    49.4 muscles this length ball straight to the throat of KL Rahul at deep midwicket. This was sitting up nicely for him to swing over the ropes, he hit it well but it was almost as if he forgot there was a fielder there. First five-wicket haul for Bhuvneshwar Kumar in ODIs 238/10

    7.3 stunning take at short fine leg! Pushpakumara leaps to his right to hold on to Rohit's ramp. This was angled across off stump at a length. Was well wide. But Rohit saw fine leg in and looked to clear him. Wasn't quite close to the ball and was stretching out at it. Not the best execution of that shot, but what a catch. He looked to have got enough height on it 29/2
    4.4 Munaweera fumbles a couple of times at fine leg, but holds on. Bouncer at middle stump, gets under this hook as it continues to climb on him. Bent way out of shape and top edges it, straight into the path of Munaweera who manages to somehow get it behind him after getting a hand, and then swivels to catch it 17/1

    25.1 Oh, Pandey. What have you done? The stage was set for him to milk the runs, possibly a big score, but what does he do? Attempts an ugly slog sweep that he has to fetch from outside off, ends up top-edging it to Tharanga who takes a dolly at midwicket. Some relief for Sri Lanka. A 99-run stand has been broken 128/3
    46.1 caught behind. Short and spinning away from off. Looks to nudge it past short third man, but only manages a tickle through to Dickwella who takes a neat catch 237/4
