    0.2 beauty from Vinay, Tharanga's troubles in Australia continue, a short of length ball that moves away a touch, Tharanga doesn't bother much about his footwork as he fishes at the ball, nicks it and it's easy for Dhoni, who has to move forward a touch to collect that 0/1
    7.1 Irfan has a wicket, with his trademark incutter, Dilshan throws his bat at that one outside off, bottom edges it through to the keeper, Dhoni doesn't bother with appealing, just throws the ball up in the air to celebrate the wicket 28/2
    19.4 leading edge! Sangakkara gives Ashwin the charge, tries to launch him over mid-on but spoons a big leading edge down to point, credit to Ashwin for tossing it up 79/3
    37.3 Dhoni makes no error this time! What a pity for Chandimal, Mathews dropped it in front of short cover and they have to hurry, the under-arm flick by Rohit is sharp and Dhoni collects and breaks the stumps, the third umpire takes a look 178/5
    36.2 the bowling change works! Vinay is rewarded for bowling it straight, the ball doesn't bounce as much as Jayawardene expected, hits him fairly low on the pad in front of the stumps as he tries to tuck it away 173/4
    46.3 what a waste for Sri Lanka! Mathews made room and swung at a low full toss swinging away from him, he stepped out of his crease to steal a bye but before he could turn around and make his way back Dhoni had under-armed it to the stumps 210/7
    39.4 the frustration gets to Perera! He tries to slam it over the infield by staying at the crease, he plays all over it and skies it down to Virat who takes it at deepish mid-off 184/6
    49.3 the frustration gets to Kulasekara as he tries to hit out, another slower ball, shorter in length, he top edges the pull down to Kohli at point 232/8

    49.5 slams a full delivery down to midwicket, Senanayake ran the first one hard but Malinga wanted the second to give his partner the strike, Senanayake didn't want the second and Malinga had to turn back, he was well short of his ground once Dhoni broke the stumps, the third umpire takes a look 235/9

    40.3 Appeal for a run-out! He's gone! Against the run of play, Dhoni pushes it towards mid-on and appears to set off for a run, Gambhir is also off the blocks but there was never a single, he turns around and can't make it before the direct hit by Kulasekara 178/5
    5.6 Kulasekara gets him! The ball angles it from around the off stump, Kulasekara held the length back slightly and Tendulkar was caught on the drive, big outside edge down to Sangakkara 24/1
    14.1 Kohli's trapped playing across the line, the ball lands on the off stump and nips back in slightly, Kohli tries to whip it away but the ball hits him a bit low on the pads, quite straightforward 61/2
    21.5 the direct hit sends him back, he steers it to backward point and calls for the quick single, Jayawardene hits the target at the striker's end and the third umpire takes a look, excellent pick up and throw by the captain 94/3
    27.4 very well taken by Sangakkara! Malinga fired it down the leg side and Raina tried to run it down to fine leg, he clipped it off the face of the bat and Sangakkara anticipated well and moved quickly to his right 118/4

    43.3 the captain sets a fine example again! Perera pitches it up outside the off stump, he shapes to drive through the covers but ends up driving uppishly and Jayawardene dives to his right and takes it inches off the ground 184/6
    47.4 well that drop didn't cost anything! Yet another slower ball and Ashwin makes room to play the spooned extra cover drive, ends up chipping it straight to extra cover, clever change of pace again does the trick 212/7
    48.4 we have another twist here! Pathan swings and the ball drops on the pitch, he was uncertain whether to run or not but Dhoni was already at the other end, Irfan had to sacrifice his wicket and Angelo had enough time to take aim and hit 223/8
    49.5 we have a run-out now! Vinay makes room and squirts it out to mid-off and sets off, Mathews under-arms it straight at the stumps and there's no need for the 3rd umpire 233/9
