    10.4 that's No. 301 for Sanga, Kulasekara is over the moon, it's Sehwag's wicket! Dug in short, Sehwag looks to upper-cut it, but it follows him and the edge nestles in Sanga's gloves 60/5
    0.3 freak dismissal, a length ball on the pads, Gambhir misses on the flick, the ball hits the protruding thigh pad and ricochets on to the leg stump. The scorebook will say: Gambhir b Kulasekara 0 1/1
    1.6 he's gone! poor shot, cuts away at a wide delivery without any feet movement, and edges it through, this one didn't come in with the angle, rather held its line. Kohli had been edgy through his brief stay, and such a loose shot was always around the corner 4/2
    3.3 and then there were three, Yuvraj goes chasing, and Samaraweera takes a good catch at second slip. Yuvraj's feet are rooted as he goes for this cut shot, and he ends up playing awkwardly and away from the body, the edge in but natural. Samaraweera times his jump at second slip to perfection and takes a nice overhead catch 16/3
    8.5 edged and taken! Dhoni cannot contain himself, again going for a drive to the off but this time he doesn't get to the pitch of a ball just fractionally held back on length and twirls a little nick to Sangakkara who takes it low to his left 47/4

    45.3 that's his first unsmart shot of the innings, takes the risk, goes for the slog, misses, and the ball is full and straight and hits the middle of middle 237/9
    34.2 he's gone, skidder, what a big strike by Dilshan, he doesn't even bother appealing. it's bowled from colse the stumps, Jadeja defends, playing for the spin, the ball - just changed - skids on with the arm, and he appeals only as a second thought because it's dead plumb. Good hand by Jadeja, though 166/6
    42.5 another wicket down, sweeps all over a topspinner, misses and it's head damn straight, he is hit smack in front of the stumps 213/7
    44.5 it's hit like a bullet towards Samaraweera at extra cover, and he takes his second nice catch of the day, fingers pointing up, body leaning back slightly, absorbing the force of the shot through soft hands, India eight down 233/8

    0.3 edged and gone! Kohli takes a nice catch at second slip. Slight hint of movement away, from back of a length, and he slashes at it without any feet movement, and Kohli gobbles it up overhead. Second straight duck for Tharanga 0/1
    16.1 Yuvraj strikes first ball! bowled flat outside off, Dilshan looks to late-cut, but the ball skids on and stays low, and Dhoni takes a good catch off the bottom edge 93/2
    19.1 Bhajji finally gets his man, sharp turn and bounce again, superb bowling, angling in, making him play, dipping, and then turning away and taking the edge 109/3

    31.6 bowled him! Samaraweera is looking for that late-cut again, but this one jags in with the arm, it takes the inside edge onto the stumps, Jadeja is all charged 157/4
    38.4 he don't need a fielder now, another superb delivery, arm ball, lethal arm ball, pitching around the same area from where it's been turning away, but this time gains in pace and angles in, Kandamby, caught at the crease, is a dead duck 189/5
    46.4 Jadeja has pulled something out of his hat, is it too late? Two dot balls, play and miss, and under pressure Randiv hits it straight to Jadeja at midwicket and runs. The ball has gone to his right, but he has enough time to turn around and hit the stumps direct 228/6
