    9.2 huge appeal, and given, Rohit is way down the track, had taken a couple of steps out of the crease, pitching around off and middle, Rohit is hit on the pad as he can't get the bat down in time, that looked to be heading for the middle stump, Rohit is aghast at the decision, perhaps because he thinks being down the track is enough to put doubt in the umpire's mind when it comes to an lbw, Nigel Llong doesn't have any doubts, he sends Rohit on his way 33/1

    39.3 slightly quicker and straighter and it's gone through! Mendis pitched it short, Dhawan didn't react quickly and played with a cross-bat and could not get his bat even close to the ball in an attempt to turn it to the leg side and he has to go back for 94. Remember, he made 98 a few days back against New Zealand 196/4
    26.3 Mendis has done it! the big one, his carrom ball has taken out Kohli's off stump, pitching on middle and slight movement away beats Kohli, I suppose these days getting Kohli for less than a half-century can be counted as a success, Kohli mimes how the ball moved as he walks off 130/2
    35.1 Rahane is gone, he charged out of the crease, looking to loft this over extra cover -a favourite region of his - get a thick outside edge instead and that loops to backward point for a simple catch 175/3
    42.3 Rayudu tries to do a Jadeja but he doesn't get the distance. He came down the track and lofted the length ball form outside off straight to long-off for an easy catch. Kusal Perera was well inside the boundary for the catch 214/6
    39.6 another carom ball and another wicket! This one pitched closer to the stumps, was still short, and DK went back to pull it but managed a leading edge for an easy catch to mid-off. Looks like he didn't pick it and played for the offspinner 200/5

    43.3 loud appeal for lbw and Binny is gone for a duck! This one was turning in from outside off as Binny put his front foot forward to turn it to leg, he missed and the ball struck him right in front of the stumps. Easy decision and the finger went up straightaway 215/7

    47.6 the yorker works this time - it was the third of the over. Ashwin came down to charge, tried to help it behind square with an open face of the bat but missed and the ball hit the base of off stump 245/8
    48.2 another stumping appeal by the quick Sanga! It went down the leg side for a wide as Bhuvi tried to help it to leg. He missed, his backfoot was on the crease as Sanga took the bails off and it seems like Bhuvi will have to walk back. OUT says the third umpire 247/9

    26.5 Ashwin has the breakthrough, it is his hundredth one as well, zips off the surface after pitching around off, takes the outside edge and a smart take by Karthik, do India still have a chance here? 134/2
    17.2 loud appeal for lbw and the finger's gone up! It was a length delivery going towards middle stump, Thirimanne went back to turn it to leg, missed it and was trapped in front of middle and leg to be given out. Time for some drinks 80/1
    48.3 and Sanga is gone, or is he? It was a waist-high full toss on off, Sanga went for it and thick edge goes straight to Ashwin at short third man where he takes a low catch. The umpires are checking: the foot has landed in the crease, the full toss is waist-high so seems fine and Ashwin got his fingers under the ball to catch it. After a lot of communication with the third umpire, the finger has gone up 258/8
    31.1 soft dismissal there! Jayawardene has chipped a catch to extra cover, he picked out that fielder perfectly, Rohit didn't have to move as that catch at an easy pace at waist height 148/3
    31.2 Jadeja is turning the game here, he has two in two, this time it is Chandimal who is gone, terrific ball to get first up, pitching on off and middle and zipping away to take off stump, a golden duck for Chandimal, Jadeja on a hat-trick, this game has come alive 148/4
    36.2 Shami strikes now! There was a loud appeal for lbw as the ball seamed in sharply after pitching outside off and trapped Mathews in front of the stumps. It was a back of length ball and hit him high on the pads but the umpire didn't take long to raise the finger 165/5
    38.6 Shami strikes again! Senayanake takes the aerial route even though the five balls had gone for 10 runs so far. Shami pitched it up towards middle and leg and the batsman chipped it straight to Rohit Sharma at midwicket 183/6
    43.1 strikes on the first ball! He pitched it short of length on middle, de Silva came down to steer it to leg but missed and it hit him right in front of the stumps, didn't bounce too much 216/7
