    13.1 outstanding catch, much-needed wicket that for Sri Lanka. Slower delivery that was bowled fuller on off, Rohit looks to turn it but is early into the stroke, ball lobs in the air as Chameera dives full length across the pitch to take that. The best part was the control as his elbows landed on the hard turf. Rohit goes just when he was looking to rev up the engine 122/2
    6.6 and there's the breakthrough. This one was dug in short at good pace, Dhawan looked to help it over the keeper's head but was cramped for room as the ball got the glove on the way through to Chandimal who accepted it gleefully 75/1
    14.2 too early into the pull, the ball skids onto him, takes the top edge and lobs straight to Dilshan at cover point. As easy as they come 127/3
    18.5 walks across the stumps and scoops that full toss straight to backward square leg. 186/5
    18.4 attempted yorker, turned out to be a low full toss, he swung through the line but only managed to get the toe end of the bat, long on fielder takes it easily. End of a superb cameo 186/4

    18.6 that's a hat-trick for Thisara! You can't blame Yuvraj for that, looks to go down town but the low full toss meets the toe end of the bat, Senanayake takes an easy catch at long-on. Fourth hat-trick in T20I history 186/6

    3.2 another one bites the dust. Hint of movement away from the length area on middle and off, he pokes his bat out half-heartedly, gets a thin inside edge that flies through to Dhoni. 16/3
    0.1 how quick was that stumping? Faster than the Bailey stumping, I reckon. Dilshan's comeback doesn't go as per plan. This one was a slider that goes across him, Dilshan looked to flay that, misses it and ends up dragging his backfoot outside the crease. Dhoni breaks the bails in one single motion 2/1
    1.1 excellent catch by Yuvraj running in from mid-off. Prasanna looks to go over the infield, only manages to get the toe end. Wicket off his first ball for Nehra, or Nehra Ji as his good friend Sehwag calls him 3/2
    11.3 another appeal for stumping. Quick, quick work from Dhoni. Jadeja finds just enough turn and bounce to beat the outside edge. Chandimal reached out and pushed outside off as his balance is foiled. The back foot was in the air when Dhoni whipped the bails off in a flash; well faster then flash in fact 68/5
    11.2 Jadeja tosses this up on off, Kapu attacks him and gives him the charge. He lofts it in the air. Pandya runs across to his left from long-on and completes a smart catch 68/4

    16.2 tries to bowl a leg break but it ends up being a long hop, it's a different matter altogether that he still gets a wicket. Shanaka could have hit this wherever he pleased; looked to swing it across the line over midwicket, but face turned in his hand and lobbed straight towards Raina, who takes a well-judged catch at long-off 116/6
    16.4 as easy as they come for Ashwin. Beautifully tossed up, gets the batsman to step out, Thisara didn't get to the pitch and ended up slicing it to Rahane at short third man. Third for Ashwin, the hat-trick man is out for a duck 117/7
    17.3 too late to get down to the ball. It was full and straight delivery angling into middle from wide of the crease, missed it altogether as he looked to whip that over midwicket, and an easy decision for umpire Anil Chaudhary 119/8
    17.6 doesn't get better than this. Can't remember the last time an Indian bowler bowled yorkers on demand like this. This one was full and straight, not quite the yorker though, nicely angled in from wide of the crease, Chameera was through with the stroke, big gap between bat and pad as the ball sneaks through to hit the furniture 119/9
