I Sharma to Jayawardene, OUT, 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

Yuvraj Singh to Tharanga, OUT, 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!

39.5

Kumar to Dilshan, OUT, 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.

44.4

Patel to Sangakkara, OUT, 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.
