    0.5 brilliant ball, pitching on the off stump and then straighening down the line, Ramesh is defending off the middle stump, but the ball misses the outside edge and clips the top off the off stump 6/1
    49.5 going for the 6, big slog down the ground, but he hasn't got onto it properly, Chandana it looks like has taken a safe catch in front of the sightscreen, what a great innings, standing ovation from the crowd 372/6
    45.4 swiping it thru the mid wicket, Murali fields with his knees, confusingly wearing Wickers shirt, pings it to the bowler's end, TV called, direct hit ends the madness 324/2
    46.5 ever the entertainer, cleaned bowled middle stump out of the ground, Jaya puts his back into it, medium pace yorker 344/3
    47.3 straight drive, straight back to the bowler that is, India collapsing, they look in trouble 349/4
    47.4 clap clap clap, marvellous stuff from Robin, pull shot, top edge, down the throat of the mid wicket, never mind, I'm sure he can blame the demons in the pitch 349/5

    14.2 flicking across the line, missing, into the pads behind the crease in line with the off and middle stumps 74/3

    41.3 working it around the corner, Tendulkar is the fielder at short fine leg, Mahanama is sent back, great throw, throws down the stumps at the bowler's end, everything going the way of one team 204/9
    36.4 going for a big slog over mid wicket, elading edge falls down Ramesh's throat at mid off 187/7

Match Notes

  • The Taunton rampage

    Rahul Dravid and Sourav Ganguly paired up and took Sri Lanka to the cleaners in 1999, merrily breaking a few records on the way
