    11.4 caught down the leg side again! Ishant banged in another short one down leg side, Jayasuriya attempted to pull the ball but only managed to glove it towards Dhoni who didn't have to dive this time to take the catch 71/2
    3.5 caught! Ishant banged it in short down leg side, Sangakkara tried to pull it but got a sizable edge through to Dhoni who moved quickly to his right to pull of a diving catch, Sangakkara didn't even wait for the umpire's decision, off he went 16/1
    26.3 Jayawardene's holed out! He steps down the track and lofts Ojha towards Gambhir at long off who takes an easy catch, he wasn't to the pitch of the ball and didn't try and hit it with power 149/3
    37.3 lbw! Praveen bowls a short of a length delivery that pitches in line with the stumps and goes straight through, Kapugedera moves forward and tries to play across the line towards midwicket, he plays around the ball and gets hit in line with the stumps 217/4
    45.1 Silva's run out! He moves forward to a short of a length ball and opens the face to run the ball towards third man, Silva returns for the second run but RP swoops on the ball and fires the throw back to Dhoni who breaks the stumps in time to beat Silva's full length dive, incidentally Silva was on 49 so he completed his 50th run before being run out on the 51st 263/6
    42.3 caught! and well caught! The length was short on leg stump, terrible ball really, Dilshan swiveled and pulled the ball hard and flat towards fine leg, RP was on the boundary and he timed his jump perfectly to take the catch, he took one look to see where he had landed after completing the catch but he was inside the boundary 245/5
    48.1 caught at long on! RP pitches on a good length outside off and angles it into the left-hander, Weeraratne moves forward and tries to clear the long-on boundary, he hasn't got enough on it and Gambhir runs it to take a well-judged catch 287/7
    49.5 Thushara's run out! He cut the ball hard towards third man where Gambhir fumbled the take, Thushara wanted the strike and hared back for the second, the throw came back to Dhoni who had to stretch to break the stumps because he was rather far away from them, Thushara was inches short even though he dived, did Dhoni break the stumps with the ball in his glove? It's too close to call 307/8

    20.2 lbw! Gambhir steps out of his crease and tries to flick, he misses and gets hit low on the front pad, the Sri Lankans appeal confidently and Jerling raises the finger, Gambhir's front foot was a long way out of the crease 135/2
    11.4 caught! Kulasekera bowls a slower ball on leg stump, Sehwag moves across his stumps and chips the ball straight to Fernando at short fine leg, the line was poor and the shot was on but Sehwag got beaten by the change of pace 92/1
    35.4 Raina's run out, Dhoni plays the lap shot once again to one that's outside leg stump and plays the ball towards fine leg, Jayasuriya gives chase and the batsman run two, they want the third and Raina sprints back and dives full length in a desperate attempt to make his ground, his bat is well over the crease when Sangakkara breaks the stumps but the blade is in the air because of the impact with the ground 234/3
    37.6 bowled him! Murali pitched the ball outside off stump, it was a quicker one and the ball spun into the right-hander, Dhoni tried to work the ball towards point off the back foot but it was too straight for the shot, he missed and the ball clipped the top of off stump 253/4
