43.1

Harbhajan Singh to DPMD Jayawardene, SIX, Hello?! Where did that come from. He has been defending stoutly against the spinners but here and now decides to have a bash. He picked the flighted delivery outside off stump and swung it to long-on. Fifty up for the captain; 6th Test fifty against India

Sri Lanka 164/2   DPMD Jayawardene 54* (93b 7x4 1x6)   Harbhajan Singh 5.1-1-24-0

148.5

Kumble to Dilshan, SIX, he breaks free of the round-the-stumps shackles with a slog sweep. The front leg was pressed well outside leg, opened his stance up and swung a full delivery outside leg over deep square leg boundary. Super.

Sri Lanka 529/5   TM Dilshan 85* (130b 8x4 1x6)   A Kumble 34.5-4-109-0
