    10.3 soft dismissal! Rohit makes room and looks to drive through cover but he neither tries to go over nor tries to keep it down, plays it straight into the hands of short cover. That's a good low catch by Sena there. Not the first time he has been out like this.. 64/2
    1.3 big strike first up! Rahane tries to break the pattern with a across the line slog to a back of length delivery, it comes slow off the deck and catches the underedge on to his thigh pads, it goes on to disturb the stumps. 4/1
    19.6 another good yorker, the batsman comes back for the second after pushing it to midwicket, but he was always struggling and direct hit ends his innings 130/4
    18.1 a full toss is hit straight to long-off! Not sure if Sri Lanka really wanted that wicket at this stage. A relief for the Indian bench though. A man in form could have hit this ball anywhere, but Yuvraj chips it straight to the fielder 119/3

    1.1 this is gone up in the air! KJP tries to swing again, but he is nowhere near the pitch.. This one was outside off and he tries to pull it off the front foot, only to get a thick leading edge to mid-off where Jadeja takes an easy catch 5/1
    5.5 caught at deep square leg! Indian fielders come back to life as Kohli takes a well-judged catch at the boundary.. Ashwin's carrom-balls brought him a lot of wickets in the last game.. It's that ball again.. Dilshan goes for a sweep and gets a big top-edge.. looks like it's going over, but Kohli is at the boundary to gobble it up. 41/2
    9.5 he is gone! Ashwin takes a good forward-diving catch! Mahela ends his last innings with a cross-batted slog that he is not able to keep down.. The fielder at midwicket takes an excellent catch.. But after that previous shot, this was quite unlike Mahela.. 65/3

    12.3 another one falls! This is going to get exciting folks.. Thirimanne wasn't showing much footwork in the last over and this time he tries to push a slider only to get a thin outside edge to the keeper. That stayed a touch low too 78/4
