View dismissal ST Jayasuriya lbw b Khan 13 59 37 1 0 35.13
13.5 It cut in from outside the off stump, Jayasuriya was caught on the shuffle, trying to defend and was hit in front of the stumps but high around the front-pad flap. It looked like going over. Will confirm after replays. Zaheer has struck the most vital blow of the day. The virtual eye suggests it would have hit the top of the middle stump. Right at the top. So that's that. Jayasuriya is back in the hutch. 33/5
View dismissal KC Sangakkara b Khan 2 8 10 0 0 20.00
1.6 Oh he has cleaned him up. The off stump has been pegged back. Sangakkara looks stunned. It landed around a length, outside off stump and seamed back in. Sangakkara had a lazy waft, without moving towards the line and the bat came down outside the line. He even lost the bottom-hand grip of the bat handle and that took the bat further away from the ball. 4/1
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* c Yuvraj Singh b Khan 2 14 10 0 0 20.00
5.4 Zaheer strikes with his full length and probing line around the off stump. Mahela gets forward, hangs his bat out in an effort to defend but the ball kept angling away, kissed the outside edge and flew towards the first slip. Dhoni had a half-hearted attempt at the catch before collapsing his knees and not getting in the way. The ball went to Yuvraj who juggled a bit but held on. 10 for 2. 10/2
View dismissal CK Kapugedera c †Dhoni b Khan 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
5.6 Zaheer is on a roll. The angling delivery works again. It landed on a length around off stump and shaped away a touch. Chamara had a poke. Fatal. Thin nick through to Dhoni. The slip fielders jump in joy, Dhoni flings the ball high in the air and Zaheer rushes to him. 10 for 3 and the Sri Lanka are wobbling here. 10/3
View dismissal LPC Silva c Kohli b Kumar 0 3 2 0 0 0.00
6.6 Praveen joins in the party hosted by Zaheer. It landed back of length around the middle stump line, Silva is sucked forward, bat way in front of the body and the ball curves away with bounce to take the shoulder of the bat and popping to point. 11 for 4 and Sri Lanka are reeling here. 11/4
View dismissal TM Dilshan c Badrinath b Pathan 16 50 33 3 0 48.48
17.2 What a first ODI catch to take! Badrinath is the man. Dilshan pulled the short-of-length delivery in the air in front and right of long leg. Badri charged in and dived to hold on to it. Ala Dean Jones. Dilshan promises to deceive. Sri Lanka are tottering here. Unbelievable. 44/6
View dismissal KMDN Kulasekara c Badrinath b Kumar 25 94 62 2 0 40.32
33.4 PK strikes again. Another slower ball. Kulasekara is early into the on drive, couldn't keep it down and Badrinath fell forward from his short midwicket position to take the catch 118/8
View dismissal T Thushara c Kohli b Kumar 44 69 46 7 0 95.65
33.1 PK gets the vital breakthrough with a lovely slower ball. It was full and around the off stump, Thushara, who hit the first ball of Praveen Kumar in the previous over for a boundary, again went for the swing across the line but holed out to Kohli at deep midwicket. 118/7
View dismissal BAW Mendis c & b Harbhajan Singh 0 5 1 0 0 0.00
34.1 Flighted doosra on the middle, Mendis, India's nemisis, didn't pick it up, tried to work it across the line and gets a leading edge back to Harbhajan. 122/9

View dismissal IK Pathan c †Sangakkara b Kulasekara 5 11 8 1 0 62.50
2.4 Kulasekara takes out his man. He had Irfan in trouble on a few occasions and gets the reward now. It left the lefty Irfan Pathan - the in cutter to the right hand batsman - and got the edge on its way. Sangakkara didn't move his left leg but just dived to take the catch. 8/1
View dismissal V Kohli c Kapugedera b Thushara 37 82 67 6 0 55.22
19.4 Kohli throws his wicket away with a loose drive to extra cover fielder. Full in length and the urge to drive on the up swallows him. He started off in an slightly iffy manner against the new ball but settled down to play well but he is gone now. he had driven loosely in the second ball of this over but it had not gone in the air but this time a similar ball has fetched his wicket 75/4
View dismissal SK Raina lbw b Kulasekara 1 7 4 0 0 25.00
4.2 Caught plumb in front. Raina takes a tiny hesitant prod forward, tries to get his bat around the pad and is struck right in front. It landed on the middle and leg, cut in to hit the pad. Loose technique on offer by all the three Indians so far. 16/2
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh lbw b Mendis 20 40 32 4 0 62.50
14.5 Yuvraj continues to be a sitting duck against Mendis. Done in by that carrom ball again. It landed on a length around middle and off, Yuvraj groped forward and across, front leg landing well across the line and he couldn't get his bat around the front pad in time and the ball cut in to trap him right in front. Dead duck. 52/3
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† b Fernando 39 88 54 3 0 72.22
35.5 Cleaned him up with a fuller length delivery that shaped in. It came in from the full length, from the off stump line, Dhoni went for the drive and edges it to his stumps. Good innings from the captain. 135/6
View dismissal RG Sharma lbw b Thushara 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
19.6 Double strike from Tushara and I was wondering whether he had come on just to facilitate the change of ends for the spinners! It landed on the leg stump line, moved in with the left-armer's angle, Rohit was late on the defensive prod - a waft across the line - and was struck in front of the middle and leg above the knee roll. Like Jayasuriya's dismissal. Virtual eye suggests it would hit the top of the leg and middle. 75/5
