    20.2 Mahela is gone. Just like that. Against the run of play. He reached forward and tried to wrist it across the line. It flew of the leading edge towards sweeper cover. Pouched! It was a short-of-length delivery that straightened around the off stump. Mahela tried to whip it across the line and got a leading edge 121/1
    39.5 DIlshan falls after an entertaining and very valuable knock. It was the bouncer, around head-high, around the off and middle stump line and DIlshan couldn't keep the pull down. Neither could he clear the boundary. Ishant collected it at deep backward square-leg region. Very fine innings. 217/3
    23.4 But he is gone now! Yuvraj strikes. It landed outside the off stump and straigthened, Tharanga went for the cut shot again but edged this one! 132/2
    44.4 runs down the track for the big hit but is beaten by the change of length (Munaf shortened the length); he tried to go through with the shot, go through the line of the delivery but ended up chipping it high towards covers. Fine knock but it's over now. Five overs left. Crucial wicket this. 261/6
    42.3 Fine catch from DK at deep backward square-leg. Kapu had swung the full length delivery rather well actually but DK rushed to his left and tumbled down to take it inches off the turf. 242/4
    43.6 full in length around the off stump line, Angelo wanted it to go over mid-on but ended up dragging it straight to midwicket. 258/5

    49.1 All too simple! A short of length delivery around the off stump. A big swing to the leg side. Dhoni takes the catch. He throws the ball back to Munaf. The batsman walks away. Munaf walks back to the top of the bowling mark. 294/7
    49.5 shuffles right across the stumps and misses the flick. the ball bounds off the pad and they try to steal a leg bye. Munaf picks the ball and runs to remove the bails at the non-striker's end 298/8

    5.6 Huge shout for lbw but Sehwag is run out ! It was the wonderful inswinger from Kula that seemed to have trapped Sehwag right in front. Shout for lbw but Ashoka says not out. Sehwag tries to steal a leg bye but there was no run in it. He tried to turn back but it was too late by then to meet a direct hit. The lbw appeal looked so good, don't know why that's want given out, and the ball rolled towards backward point And he couldn't beat the direct hit from Kapugedera! 38/2
    0.6 Karthik walks back disappointed, bowled it short just outside leg and he went after it, trying to work it down fine, there was a deviation and Sangakkara clasped it diving to his left, we're not sure if he gloved it but the umpire Rauf was certain, India suffer their first bowler 9/1
    21.1 Perera, the Indian Specialist, strikes. It was the short-of-length delivery cutting away like a leg cutter and Virat went for the pull. Too late. The ball flew of the edge to third man. Gone! Vital vital moment this 109/4
    15.2 Gone this time! It kicked up from short of length and also straightened around middle. That straightening did Yuvraj in. He tried to adjust to it by attempting an awkward whip across the line and seems to have got the inner edge. Yuvraj stood in the dressing room and waited to watch the replays. Does it mean he thinks he didn't get an edge? Or does it mean he just wanted to see what was the ball and what he played? No snickometer replay shown yet 88/3
    46.5 And that's it. Sri Lanka have completed a crushing win. Fine spirited performance from Sri Lanka. The end came when the Indian captain Dhoni went down the track for the big hit but ended up dragging it to his stumps. Randiv roared. Sanga, Mahela, Randiv enveloped each other with a hug. The rest of the team-mates converged. 225/10
    30.4 Now then.. now then... raina has combusted! He charged down the track for the big hit but Randiv did him in flight and then by the turn. Fine bowler this man. Raina was trying to swing it over long-on but it dipped on him and flew right up of the top edge. Dilshan back pedaled at covers and for a while it seemed he had misjudged it. However, he cupped his palms over and behind his head to pouch the catch! Sri Lanka scream for joy. Enter Rohit Sharma. 158/5
    34.1 Stumped! Rohit's failures continue. A touch bizzare dismissal! This is what happened: It was a lovely off break outside the off stump, Rohit lunged forward to defend but the ball dipped and turned through the bat and pad gap (not sure whether there was an inside edge) It dropped just short of Sanga who failed to collect it cleanly but it hit his boot and re bounded on to the stumps. Rohit had stretched his back leg outside the crease in trying to push out at that ball. Another fine delivery from Suraj 177/6

    37.6 Clatter! What a yorker. Straight, pacy and inswinging. Gone! PK had a waft but had no chance to stop that. 201/7
    41.5 Yorked! It was full and on the off stump line. Ishant pushed inside the line and the off stump was pegged back. 210/8
    45.5 Nehra leans forward to try lofting it over mid-off but ends up lobbing it to mid-off. And then they were one. Sri Lanka are closing in on a crushing win here 224/9
