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
