Vaas to Tendulkar, OUT, Vaasy gets into the act. Sachin Tendulkar is gone. Three quick wickets in a row. It landed on a length around leg stump - within the mat - and moved across towards the off stump. Tendulkar stretched forward to defend and was struck in front. It would have hit the off stump. Again, the bat came down outside the line. Tendulkar doesn't ask for the review and walks off. Sri Lanka are having a great session here.

SR Tendulkar lbw b Vaas 5 (5m 3b 1x4 0x6) SR: 166.66

India 178/3   SR Tendulkar 5 (3b 1x4)
