  • Lasith Malinga10-1-56-1
  • Chaminda Vaas10-0-72-0

Well, India owe everything to Gambhir and Dhoni who have put on ten runs an over for the last ten overs to boost them to a very competitive 4 for 267 on this track. Commendable effort from the pair who were just shy of a 200-run stand. Sri Lanka's bowlers did a fine job for the majority of the innings but will now look to their batsmen to try to overhaul the total. It promises to be an excellent chase so do join us again shortly.
