    5.5 short of a length, outside the leg stump, flicks the ball in the air, guess what! there he is, Muthiah Muralitharan at short fine leg, takes a few steps to his right, takes the catch. Yuvraj hangs is head down and starts the long slow walk back 26/1
    17.3 good length ball, rising sharply, good pace too, Laxman does it again, plays at it standing put, thin edge and through to Kalu, Fernanado celebrates and then turns around to look at the umpire. Peter manuels still has a smile as he rises the 71/4
    8.2 good length ball, slogs at it, scoops the ball up to extra covers, Jaysuriya takes the catch. The Indian think tank has to start thinking now. Nothing seems to work today. 30/3
    37.3 on middle and leg, Ganguly slightly frustrated, goes for the sweep, gets a top edge, goes straight down the troat of Jayasuriya, it is all cheers in Colombo 151/5

    42.3 this is why he is the king of off spin, pitched outside the off stump, Sodhi shapes to play at it, always looking agressive, exaggerated turn on this. Spins sharply in and disturbs the castle 178/6
    46.5 The magician does it again, fools Sehwag to play a false shot, the pressure of the two dot balls tells, hits in the air to the happiest fielder at long off, Perera takes the catch! Murali strikes another body blow 200/7
