    4.2 Malinga has done what his captain brought him in for, gets rid of Karthik, an overpitched ball is chipped back to the bowler, looking to play to the leg side but ends up getting it to the left of the bowler, soft dismissal 30/1
    11.1 and again, he gets the breakthrough early, a short of length ball, Gambhir looks to dab it past the keeper, only manages to get it as far as Sangakkara 96/2
    17.2 low full toss outside legstump, Raina looks to swat that one, gets a top-edge which ends up as a simple catch to deep midwicket, not the greatest of deliveries, but Sri Lanka won't complain 144/3
