    2.1 Raina has pulled off a stunner at midwicket. This was short on middle, Gunathilaka, who was waiting to pull, absolutely hammers this and could've well mistaken into believing that was screaming to the fence. Sadly for him, Raina decided to fling himself full stretch to his left and took the catch even though he was slightly off balance. Now, that's surely one way to prove your fitness. 25/1
    14.1 slaps this short ball straight to extra cover. Big blow. The in-form Kusal, who appeared to be tiring, walks off to a standing ovation and applause. What entertainment 120/6
    3.1 huge wicket. Looks to play an expansive reverse sweep, but in playing too early, he ends up dragging the ball off his glove onto the stumps. Oh, dear. The crowd goes silent. 34/2
    10.4 floats this full on the stumps from wide of the crease, Tharanga looks to go big again but misses it completely as this comes back in to cannon into the middle stump. It was an ugly attempted hoick and he's paid the price. Vijay is pumped. 96/3
    11.6 another knuckleball outside off, Thisara looks to clear long-off but ends up slicing it to Chahal, who takes an excellent catch with his fingers pointing upwards at the edge of the circle at cover. What a cameo he's played though. 113/4
    13.2 beautifully deceived in flight, done in by the drift too. The angle from around the stumps meant Jeevan looked to make room and go over cover but the ball dipped on him to beat the stroke and crash into the stumps. 118/5
    18.4 steps out to slog over long-off but gets a thick edge that flies at a comfortable height to Karthik. Shardul's impressive outing continues. This is another knuckleball that he bowls so wonderfully 151/8
    17.6 slower length ball on middle, Akila swings across the line but can only hit it as far as KL Rahul at wide long-on. Got it off the top part of the bat. 146/7

    18.5 slices this to Unadkat who takes an excellent catch at short third man. He had to take a couple of steps back, which he did, and then held his balance as this descended. Shardul's having quite an evening. Shardul on a hat-trick 151/9

    1.6 steps out and whips this straight to midwicket. He looked to clear the infield but didn't get any elevation. Was hit hard, superbly taken by Kusal Mendis. He saw Rohit advancing and fired this towards the pads. Rohit didn't have room to properly get under the length and ended up chipping the catch. 13/1
    3.1 second one for Akila. Dhawan's stay is shortlived. This one grips the surface and spins away, Dhawan stepped out to go over the top but ended up spooning a simple catch to Thisara at mid-on. He had to run in to complete the catch. India in a hint of trouble 22/2
    9.5 works this into the leg side but in doing so, Rahul's has smashed the stumps off his boot. Out hit wicket. This time, there's no doubt whatsoever. 85/4
    6.5 Raina makes room, shimmies out, and tamely chips a catch to mid-off. Back of a length on leg stump, Raina is cramped for room. He checks his punch and hands a catch to Thisara at mid-off. It wasn't a full blooded drive, and Raina falls for 27 off 15 balls 62/3
