Jamie Alter: "A few of the Indians are assembled inside the boundary line. They've been through a few drills. Pretty warm out there. More of a crowd gathered, a large section being a bunch of school students, probably 150-200. "

Khan to Vandort, no run, hits the seam on a length around off stump, holds its line, jabbed to backward point by the tall Vandort.

0.3

Khan to Vandort, OUT, Zaheer takes out Vandort. It hit the deck around the good length on the off stump line and if anything, held its line. Vandort came forward a touch late and pushed hard at it. The ball flew low to Dravid, standing at a wide third slip, who took it inches off the turf.

4.1

Khan to Warnapura, no run, lands tad wide outside off stump and Warnapura offers no shot

Two slips close together, a wide third slip, two gullies and a backward point. Packed.

4.2

Khan to Warnapura, no run, beaten and almost cleaned up. IT cut in from short of length and he went for the on-the-up drive- again the bottom-hand comes off the handle - and the ball threads the bat and pad gap and rushes past the off stump

4.3

Khan to Warnapura, no run, another one cutting in with bounce and yep, that bottom-hand is off again, and the ball moves past the waft to crash into the thigh pad

4.4

5.1

Sharma to Sangakkara, no run, slanted across Sangakkara who shuffled across, covered his off stump and let Karthik come into play.

5.3

Sharma to Sangakkara, no run, in the channel outside off stump, Sangakkara lets it go through to the 'keeper

5.6

Sharma to Sangakkara, no run, similar delivery, a tad fuller may be, and Sangakkara shoulders arms

End of over 6 (4 runs) Sri Lanka 27/1
KC Sangakkara    15* (21b 2x4)      I Sharma    3-0-18-0

6.1

Khan to Warnapura, no run, on the leg and middle line, misses the waft and is struck on the pad

6.3

Khan to Warnapura, FOUR, fuller, just outside the off stump and he likes those overpitched deliveries. Driven down the ground, between mid-on and the bowler

6.4

Khan to Warnapura, FOUR, spanking cover drive. He got on the front foot quickly and dismissed the full pitched delivery through the off side

6.5

Khan to Warnapura, FOUR, slashed over third slip. Short in length and climbing outside off stump, Warnapura played it up and over the slips. Deliberately steered.

6.6

Khan to Warnapura, FOUR, Four in a row. Thrilling stuff. Overpitched on the middle and Warnapura swings it through the mid-on region. Nice games there. Zaheer thinks the batsman would be expecting a short-of-length delivery or a shorter one and is trying to surprise him with the fuller one. Warnapura has dismissed the three full deliveries with ease.

End of over 7 (16 runs) Sri Lanka 43/1
SM Warnapura    24* (18b 6x4)      Z Khan    4-1-25-1

Faisal from USA: "Is Dinesh Karthik the best keeper in India after MS Dhoni? He looks worse than a club wicket keeper. Says quite a bit about Indian selection committee. I have not heard a single word of encouragement from Karthik for any of his bowlers or the fielders. This is just bad!"

Suresh Menon has written a tribute piece for Ashok Mankad. Read it here . "Mankad - known affectionately as "Kaka", the same nickname as his favourite Hindi movie star Rajesh Khanna - will, however, be remembered for more than his batsmanship. He was one of the most intelligent captains on the circuit, and there was even a suggestion at one time that he might make a Brearley-like figure for India, picked purely for his captaincy abilities. He loved talking cricket, and understood the game better than most. Possibly this intimate knowledge worked against him, as he was only too aware of the pitfalls of batsmanship, and lacked the nonchalance of a Virender Sehwag, for instance, who doesn't clutter his mind with possibilities."

It landed on a length just outside off stump, turned in to beat the forward prod and struck him on the knee roll in front of middle. Decision pending. NOT OUT is the verdict. The umpires must have reckoned it would turned down leg side. My guess is that it would have hit the leg stump. Kumble has a chat with the umpire Doctrove.

Tea on day 2. Super session for Sri Lanka. An assured partnership between Warnapura and Sangakkara has propelled Sri Lanka to a position of strength. Serenity now was a popular line from the Seinfeld sitcom and that was the cry of Sanga as well. Lovely controlled innings from him and Warnapura too got over his early blues to construct a good innings. Join us in a short while.

Mark Kidger: "Even if it was hitting, if the ball pitched outside off and the batsman played a shot (which you say that he did) it is Not out?" NO Kidger, it can be out. The ball can pitch outside off and you can be playing a shot but if it hits you in line you can be given out. If it hit you outside the off stump while you were playing a shot, then it's not out. If it hit you outside off stump and you were not playing a shot, then it can be given out if in umpire's opinion it would have hit the stump. But if it pitches outside the leg stump then you can't be given out even if it was hitting the stumps.
