    2.4 Bhuvneshwar strikes early once more, Perera falls early once more, this was pitched up and outside off, swinging away, asking to be driven, Perera looks to punch it through extra cover, a thick outside edge results and that ball flies at a comfortable height to Raina at second slip, Bhuvneshwar getting the ball to swing here 6/1

    17.6 another catch at second slip, Raina it is again, pouches another left-hander, Ishant got the delivery to jag away sharply, Sangakkara has left so many deliveries like this one today, but is sucked into playing at it and he nicks it through, Sri Lanka in serious trouble now, how good a toss was this to win? 41/3
    15.2 another catch for Raina at second slip, a far tougher chance than the one to dismiss Perera, Ishant gets the ball to seam away from back of a length, Thirimanne follows the ball and pokes at it, the ball zips through low to Raina's right, Raina reacts quickly to take a sharp catch, India get the wicket they were searching for 36/2
    36.1 Jadeja's magic season continues, he's got the huge wicket of Mahela Jayawardene, this one was fired in by Jadeja, drags it down, it skids on lower than Mahela expects, Mahela was looking to mow that towards midwicket, he misses and that crashes into the stumps 119/4
    45.5 Ashwin gets him this time, the carrom ball does the job, Mathews again looking for the big hit over the leg side, he edges it once more and the ball swirls towards cover where Bhuvneshwar settles under it and pouches it safely 158/5
    49.1 and another one for Ashwin, he pauses again before he delivers the ball, Mendis wanted to power that to midwicket but he doesn't connect, he's caught a long way out of the crease, Dhoni has enough time to remove the bails 171/8
    46.5 this time he connects, but not well enough to clear the man at deep midwicket, Ishant continues to keep it short, Perera swipes and can't clear the long boundary and he's gone for a duck, three man in the deep there but he still backed himself to get a six 160/6
    47.5 ho ho ho! what a wicket that is, Ashwin - an offspinner - has got Kulasekara bowled round his legs, the carrom ball from Ashwin, pitching outside leg, Kulasekara lets it go thinking he'll get a wide, instead the ball turns in and that clips leg stump on its way to Dhoni, Sri Lanka lose another one 164/7

    16.6 brain freeze for Sharma again! After patiently defending for a large part of the innings, he charges down the pitch to a length delivery and tries to smash it over extra cover, but it seams in a touch and goes past the inside edge to knock the top of leg and middle. Another start wasted 77/1
    31.5 stumping chance here, as a perfectly disguised googly from Mendis draws Shikhar out of the crease, looking to defend, the back leg is an inch out of the crease and the ball spins past the outside edge, Sanga takes off the bails in time, Dhawan's innings is over 142/2
