    9.5 legcutter does it, and Karthik has gone for a middling score after a good start once again. This legcutter is slow off the pitch and Karthik looks to play on the up again, the bat slices in his hand and he offers a simple return catch 41/2
    2.6 Perfecto! Big inswinger, hits him in front of off, headed for middle, Ojha's bat is nowhere near it, and Kula has struck beautifully. Umpire Koertzen's slow finger of death comes up one of the last few times. Inswinger, outsinger, inswinger, elementary 7/1
    34.2 finally the frustration of finding the fielders again and again has got to Kohli. Looks to clear long-off this time, but doesn't get any power in this shot and holes out, Jeewan Mendis taking a nice safe catch 171/4
    23.6 another ugly slog sweep, and this time he connects - to his own demise. Gets too much under it and skies it to Perera at long-on 125/3
    37.1 sharp offbreak, through the gap, and hits the top of middle stump. In SRT style, he semi-squats, suggesting it stayed low, but the ball has hit the top of middle, he was just late in bringing the bat down 187/5
    41.1 Kapu you beauty! Rubbish delivery, short and wide, and Raina hits it powerfully straight off extra cover, but Kapugedara flies to his lift, goalkeeper-style, and pouches it. Captain gets captain 204/6
    48.2 another high full toss, called no-ball this time as Jadeja manages to lob it towards midwicket. Ashwin wants the single but Jadeja is late to start, and Dilshan hits the only stump visible to him while running in from midwicket 255/7
    48.4 what a catch! Length ball, drilled back straight down the wicket, and Thushara sticks his left hand to it, and takes it on the second attempt. Just to show how superb a catch it is, Umpire Koertzen is looking towards the straight boundary and wondering where the ball is. No reaction from Thushara either after completing this stunner 259/8

    48.5 and Dinda walks out, slower ball, and he heaves it over towards long-on, completely deceived by it. Kapugedara takes another catch, and Thushara is on hat-trick 259/9

    14.5 against the run of play, edges this, just hangs his bat in a nothing shot, and the fullish delivery turns away taking the edge low towards slip where Kohli takes a smart catch 81/2
    5.2 Dilshan gets too excited, and looks to clear mid-on. The ball was there in his striking reach, but took the inside half of his bat and Yusuf Pathan at mid-on took a nice overhead catch 29/1
    40.6 carrom ball does it! beautifully bowled. Chandimal comes down the track, knows he is beaten in the flight as this is short, but he looks to defend and plays for an off break. However, this one turns away and beats him all ends up, setting up an easy stumping 215/4
    36.4 he has holed out at wide long-off. The intention was to go over extra cover, but the ball didn't quite comes on and he ended up hitting a lot straighter than he wanted 195/3
