    0.1 Clatter! What a dramatic start! Upul Tharanga has lost his off stump. It was full in length, landed around the middle and off, and moved towards the off stump. Tharanga was caught at the crease, neither forward nor back, and pushed out at it. He lunged out at it in the last moment and ended up stumbling out of his crease. The ball moved past the desperate waft and crashed into the off stump. Timber! The bails fly! PK jumps for joy. 0/1
    21.4 he suggested in the first ball of the over that he should have gone over midwicket. He tries it this time to his own peril. It was a flighted delivery around off and he went down on his knee and tried to slog-sweep it over midwicket. But he top-edged it straight up in the air. Gone! Out for 45. 82/5
    3.3 The short ball works. Dilshan pulled it wide of the fielder couple of deliveries ago but Sangakkara has now holed out to backward square-leg region. It was below chest-high actually but Sanga was late on the shot and ended up edging it high. Ojha ran in from the deep backward square-leg to collect that. It was the shortish ball on the off stump line and Sanga tried to fetch it from there. It wasn't a bouncer or anything: between waist and chest high. 14/2
    6.2 Loud shout and it has been given. Height was the question. Mahela trudges off slowly. It cut in from outside off and trapped him in line. It hit him above the knee roll. The bat was nowhere in line. Got to see the replays to check whether it would have gone over. So do hang on. Mahela turns behind to have a look as he walks off. Hawk eye says it would have clipped the very top of the leg stump 23/3
    12.4 What a soft dismissal! Almost contrived! Samaraweera walked right across the stumps and worked the back-of-length delivery on the off and middle stump line straight to short midwicket. Absolute dolly of a catch. Sri Lanka are wobbling here. Samaraweera was looking to whip it to square-leg but ended up lobbing it to short midwicket 44/4
    22.4 And Ravindra Jadeja roars! Why not?! A wicket in the first over. It lands on the middle and moves towards leg stump and Angelo pushed down the wrong line. Trapped in front! Jaddu pumps his fist in the air! 83/6
    31.3 what a soft dismissal, this isn't flighted much, is straight and fast at 90ks, he chips down the pitch half-heartedly, plays down the wrong line and the ball ricochets off the pad to the middle stump. Jadeja blows a kiss, he is loving it 103/7
    46.1 and Randiv perishes while playing the shot that has brought him most of his boundaries! Makes room and looks to go over extra cover again, but this time doesn't get enough behind it and fins Raina. But an important innings nonetheless 170/10
    39.6 those are the kind of overs you hate as a batsman! The guy has been short, the guy has been wide, and suddenly he bowls one in the right area, and you edge it. Just back of a length, just outside off, Kula hangs his bat out there, and the ball kisses the edge 142/8
    43.1 and he has got a wicket first ball! Malinga dances down the track, and Ojha slips in the arm ball. Beaten in the flight, Malinga looks to jab at it, but it sneaks in between the bat and the pad. Dhoni does the rest 158/9

    8.5 Caught at third man! It was shortish, it was well outside off and the shot was warranted. He went for the flaying cut shot but ended up slicing it straight to third man near the boundary. Out for a 35-ball 10. One man down. 30/1

    9.6 What a lovely catch from Sanga! Fernando teased Kohli with a fuller delivery outside off stump and he fell for the bait. He edged the intended off drive and Sanga flew full stretch with an outstretched right hand to pouch that. What a stunner! 31/2
    10.4 Rohit won't move. He stands still. He has to go. Now he moves. That tendency to plant his front leg across gets him into trouble. Yet again. He then tried to bring the bat around the front pad but by then the ball had moved in to hit him in front of the off stump. It hit him just above knee roll. He lingered there for a while before he trudged off. Sri Lanka are on the attack here. Rohit showed his bat as if to suggest it had hit the inside-edge. The replays, those shown so far, didn't show any inside edge. They haven't showed snicko yet. And he stood there fora while. The match referee might come into picture 32/3
    21.5 Raina has pulled him straight to deep square leg! This isn't even a very good short ball, is asking to be hit, but Raina doesn't hit it off the middle, and the top edge settles with Tharanga, who juggles before taking full control 91/4
