View dismissal G Gambhir b Vaas 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
0.2 bowled him! Vaas pitched the ball on a good length around off stump and angled it into the left-hander, Gambhir played all around the line of the ball and it went though the gap between his bat and pad to hit off stump 0/1
View dismissal V Kohli lbw b Kulasekara 12 33 22 1 0 54.54
7.5 lbw! Kulasekara pitches the ball on a good length just outside off stump and nips it back into the right-hander, Kohli gets half a stride forward and tries to drive, the ball beats the inside edge of the bat and crashes into the back pad in front of off stump, that is plumb and Doctrove sends Kohli on his way 23/2
View dismissal SK Raina c Silva b Kulasekara 17 50 35 2 0 48.57
11.5 Raina's urge to drive on the up has terminated his stay. It was the full length delivery outside off stump and Raina drove and straight to the trap laid at short cover. India continue to wobble. 36/3
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh b Mendis 23 70 30 2 1 76.66
19.4 bowled him! Mendis bowls the quicker one, Yuvraj lunges forward in defence and plays away from his body, he gets an inside edge on to his stumps, what an eventful first over and Mendis has come back strongly after being hit for six 73/4
View dismissal RG Sharma c Jayawardene b Thushara 19 46 31 1 1 61.29
20.3 caught! India are unraveling quickly! Sharma stayed rooted to the crease and poked at a short of a length delivery outside off stump, he got a thick edge that flew at a comfortable pace at waist height to Jayawardene at first slip, catches don't come much easier than that 75/5
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c Jayawardene b Mendis 6 30 28 0 0 21.42
27.2 caught!! Dhoni moves back and tries to cut a ball that's much too close to off stump, it turned ever so slightly away from the right-hander as well, the outside edge flies quickly to Jayawardene who takes a sharp catch at first slip 87/6
View dismissal IK Pathan lbw b Muralitharan 7 31 19 0 0 36.84
28.3 lbw! Asoka de Silva took his time but finally raised the finger, Pathan lunged forward to defend but got hit on the pad in front of middle, the ball pitched in line as well, he was a long way forward and the only doubt was whether it would have missed off, whoops replays show an inside edge on to pad so Pathan was unlucky 87/7
View dismissal Harbhajan Singh c †Sangakkara b Muralitharan 12 53 28 0 0 42.85
42.1 Harbhajan's walked, he moved back to cut the doosra from outside off stump, the ball hit the bottom edge of the bat and Kumar Sangakkara took a simple catch, Harbhajan didn't even wait for a decision 117/9
View dismissal Z Khan c Thushara b Muralitharan 12 28 38 0 0 31.57
36.6 caught in the deep! Zaheer's patience wears out and he tries to slog Murali over the midwicket boundary, he hasn't connected well enough and Thushara takes a few steps back at deep midwicket and holds a well-judged catch, he looks back to see if he's inside the boudnary and he is! 107/8
PP Ojha not out 16 33 29 1 0 55.17
View dismissal MM Patel b Mendis 15 14 14 1 1 107.14
45.6 bowled! Mendis bowls a wicket-to-wicket line and the ball keeps low as well, Munaf moves towards the leg side and tries to play on the off, he misses and the ball hits leg stump 146/10
