Sharma to Warnapura, OUT, The leg stump has been knocked out. The 139kmph delivery landed short in length, Warnapura shuffled across, took the bottom-hand off the handle and tried to swat it away. He expected more bounce and didn't realise he had exposed the leg stump and the ball crashed into the top of the leg stump.

SM Warnapura b Sharma 8 (27m 22b 0x4 0x6) SR: 36.36

Sri Lanka 14/1   MG Vandort 3* (14b)   I Sharma 3-1-2-1

Khan to Vandort, OUT, trapped in front by Zaheer. It landed on the off stump line, full in length, moved in to beat the defensive prod. Vandort had placed his front leg across, towards the off stump and couldn't get his bat around it in time. That would have hit the leg stump.

MG Vandort lbw b Khan 14 (77m 50b 1x4 0x6) SR: 28.00

Sri Lanka 42/2   WPUJC Vaas 14* (29b 3x4)   Z Khan 8.5-2-26-1

Harbhajan Singh to Vaas, OUT, Harbhajan has managed to take out Vaas, who was being troubled a lot by Kumble from the other end. He tried to break free against Harbhajan and drove a full delivery outside off straight to covers. Very good innings comes to an end. He was so solid in defense against the seamers and against Harbhajan.

WPUJC Vaas c Sehwag b Harbhajan Singh 47 (169m 111b 9x4 0x6) SR: 42.34

Sri Lanka 137/3   KC Sangakkara 59* (102b 7x4)   Harbhajan Singh 14.3-4-43-1

Harbhajan Singh to DPMD Jayawardene, OUT, Mahela has asked for review of LBW. It landed on the off stump line, turned in to beat the sweep shot and hits the inner half of the front pad in front of middle. That looks out. Decision still pending. And the verdict is OUT. One of the rare occasions when Mahela's decision to review has gone wrong.

DPMD Jayawardene lbw b Harbhajan Singh 2 (10m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Sri Lanka 141/4   KC Sangakkara 60* (106b 7x4)   Harbhajan Singh 15.1-4-44-2

Khan to Samaraweera, OUT, swallowed by a lovely delivery that squared him up completely. It kicked up from back of length, around middle and off stump and left him late. Samaraweera was opened up there while shaping to defend and edged it straight to Patel. Harbhajan rushes to Zaheer to celebrate. Samaraweera bangs the bat on his helmet as he walks off.

TT Samaraweera c †Patel b Khan 35 (113m 84b 3x4 0x6) SR: 41.66

Sri Lanka 201/5   KC Sangakkara 83* (172b 10x4)   Z Khan 16-3-51-2

Kumble to Dilshan, OUT, Dilshan has asked for the Review for the lbw decision. It was the quicker front of the hand delivery and it landed just outside off and skidded towards the middle and off line. Dilshan went forward to defeng but it hit the pad first and the point of impact was inside. That looks out. Decision still pending. Verdict is OUT. Virtual eye suggests it would have hit the off and middle stump. Sri Lanka trail by 5 runs

TM Dilshan lbw b Kumble 23 (65m 45b 3x4 0x6) SR: 51.11

Sri Lanka 244/6   KC Sangakkara 101* (214b 11x4)   A Kumble 22.3-2-64-1

Kumble to Sangakkara, OUT, Sangakkara walks immediately after nicking it behind. Kumble, the Indian captain, has broken through. It was the slider outside off stump, Sangakkara tried to get forward to defend and stabbed it behind and Patel almost spilled it but managed to hang on. Sangakkara tucked his bat under his armpit and strode off. Great old-fashioned knock from him. Harbhajan had kept bowling wide outside-off line to him for two sessions yesterday but he didn't fall to the temptation and didn't become frustrated. Super innings. Potentially match winning.

KC Sangakkara c †Patel b Kumble 144 (424m 288b 14x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Sri Lanka 324/7   HAPW Jayawardene 34* (78b 3x4)   A Kumble 31.5-3-92-2

Khan to HAPW Jayawardene, OUT, He falls one short of fifty. But what a valuable hand this has been from Prasanna. It was full and on the legs, he played the pick-up shot, a whip of the wrist but hit it to Harbhajan who took a good catch at deep square leg. He gave such admirable support to Sanga and has put Sri Lanka in the driver's seat,

HAPW Jayawardene c Harbhajan Singh b Khan 49 (163m 116b 5x4 0x6) SR: 42.24

Sri Lanka 367/8   KTGD Prasad 24* (34b 4x4)   Z Khan 28.5-5-91-3

Harbhajan Singh to Prasad, OUT, Stumped by the doosra. Patel whips the bails off in a flash. Dammika Prasad was sucked by the flighted delivery, went for the big off drive but was deserted by the ball leaving him.

KTGD Prasad st †Patel b Harbhajan Singh 36 (89m 56b 5x4 0x6) SR: 64.28

Sri Lanka 396/9   BAW Mendis 17* (26b 2x4)   Harbhajan Singh 40.2-8-104-3

Kumble to Mendis, OUT, Full and straight, lands on the off, skids on towards off and middle, Mendis misses the sweep and is struck in front. Mendis and Murali think about asking for the review, then decide against it and have a laugh about it.

BAW Mendis lbw b Kumble 17 (43m 28b 2x4 0x6) SR: 60.71

Sri Lanka 396/10   M Muralitharan 0* (1b)   A Kumble 41.2-4-123-3
