    6.2 that will only make D/L calculations tougher for India. Sehwag is gone, once again trying to heave a short ball over mid-on, but this time it loops off the top edge and lands in front of Dilshan, who tumbles forward and holds well. Sehwag will wonder if he should have gone squarer than that. The slowness of the pitch meant that was tougher. 54/1
    9.2 Tendulkar is gone, and this might be his last innings in this country that loves him so much. 144 kph yorker from Malinga, and Sachin pays the price for playing a high-risk shot. He's walked right across the stumps for the flick and missed the straight one. Hits the boot in front of middle and off. Sachin wasn't looking at the umpire, he was lookiing at the ball as it hurtled towards square leg. But he knew the finger was going up. 86/2
    27.3 Gambhir is gone. It was a high risk second run, and Gambhir took on Chandimal, but what a throw from deep midwicket. Kohli works another slower ball off the pads, it loops off the edge, but safely away from the fielders. Gambhir came back for the second, and Chandimal's throw to Mathews on the bounce left the bowler having very little to do. 201/3
