    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
