View dismissal V Kohli b Thushara 54 87 66 7 0 81.81
17.3 But he is gone now! Inside edge and on to the stumps, Kohli is very disappointed. It bounced from short of length, more pace than the other two bowlers so far, and Kohli tried to push it to cover point with an angled bat, well away from the body, but the ball collided with the inside edge and crashed on to the off stump. Enter Dhoni. 81/3
View dismissal G Gambhir c Dilshan b Kulasekara 17 45 21 1 0 80.95
9.5 And he is gone now. He carved the short-of-length delivery angled well across him straight to backward point. 44/1
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c Jayawardene b Vaas 0 12 6 0 0 0.00
12.1 Vaasy gets his wicket no 400. He is lifted in the air by Kapugedera even as the rest of the team converge. The off cutter on the slow wicket has consumed Yuvraj. He is early into his whip across the line and the ball stopped on him, took the edge and went straight to short midwicket. Vaas saw the ball was taken, raised his arms, lifted his head up to the skies and shut his eyes. Blink. And his team-mates were there to congratulate him. 51/2
View dismissal SK Raina c Kulasekara b Thushara 76 125 78 6 1 97.43
40.6 Holes out to long-off this time, though. He threatened to move outside leg, got in line and went down on his knee to time the lofted shot well but straight to the man. 76 very good runs from Suresh Raina. He kicked the ground as he walked off 224/4
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c Jayasuriya b Thushara 71 104 80 4 0 88.75
42.4 Jayasuriya takes a very good catch at covers to end the captain's knock. It was full and well outside off, Dhoni crouched on a bent knee, reached out to drive and Jayasuriya timed his lunge to his left well and pouched it safely. Two new batsmen at the crease 232/5
View dismissal RG Sharma c Warnapura b Mendis 18 30 23 0 0 78.26
48.5 Mendis tricks him with change of pace and length. Rohit went for the slog-sweep but it was slower and short in length and Rohit edged it high to midwicket. 256/8
View dismissal S Badrinath c Jayawardene b Muralitharan 6 10 11 0 0 54.54
45.3 flighted off break outside off stump, Badrinath leaned across, tried to wrist it to the on side for a single but was a touch early into his shot and ended up sending a dolly to short midwicket. 243/6
View dismissal Harbhajan Singh run out (Kulasekara/Muralitharan) 2 7 4 0 0 50.00
47.5 Muralitharan to Sharma, Harbhajan is run out. Rohit came down the track to whip a flighted off break to deep square leg region. Couple of fielders screamed, "Bowler's end .. .bowler's end" and that's exactly where the throw went. Murali collected it and flicked it on to the stumps. 253/7
View dismissal P Kumar b Thushara 2 7 6 0 0 33.33
49.1 The struggling Praveen Kumar is cleaned up finally. Full, straight, on the off stump, Praveen couldn't get his bat down in time and the off stump has been pegged back 257/9
View dismissal Z Khan c Warnapura b Thushara 0 5 2 0 0 0.00

View dismissal ST Jayasuriya c Raina b Harbhajan Singh 60 85 52 8 2 115.38
17.3 Sharp catch by Raina at first slip and silence envelops the arena. Well-flighted off break around middle, full, Jayasuriya, who must have seen the sharp turn in the previous ball, some how decided to go across the line, trying to tap a single, gets the leading edge and Raina lunges to his left to take a sharp one-handed catch. Super innings comes to an end. He took his time, settled down before cutting loose. Just when Dhoni would have got worried, he falls, though. 74/3
View dismissal SM Warnapura lbw b Patel 0 31 18 0 0 0.00
6.3 He has been given out lbw. It landed on short of length around middle and off, cut in a touch to hit him high on the front thigh. It looked like it was going over the stumps. Virtual eye suggests the ball would have gone over the middle stump 28/1
View dismissal KC Sangakkara b Patel 6 20 16 1 0 37.50
10.6 Another failure for Sangakkara. He tried to force a length delivery outside off through covers but edged it to his leg stump. Kohli had fallen similarly earlier in the day. Munaf has been rewarded for some probing bowling. Sanga then suggests he should have let that one go through to the keeper. 38/2
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* run out (Kohli/Harbhajan Singh) 16 56 40 0 0 40.00
23.6 from Harbhajan Singh, Suicidal single and Mahela the big fish is gone. It was again turned to short fine leg and this time they decided to go for the single. Mahela was on the back foot when he played that shot and Kohli's throw came in one bounce to Harbhajan who broke the stumps. Mahela was far away. 106 for 4 and stuttering now. 106/4
View dismissal CK Kapugedera lbw b Yuvraj Singh 30 51 32 1 0 93.75
32.2 Given out lbw; there was a thick inside nick. It skidded in with the arm, Kapugedera shaped to defend and got a thick inside edge on to the pad in front of middle. 140/6
View dismissal TM Dilshan lbw b Harbhajan Singh 12 17 22 1 0 54.54
29.4 Another one goes. The quicker one, slid in to middle and leg, he shuffled and was rapped on the flap of the pad. umpire took his time ... long thought ... bhajji and all really turned on the heat and given out finally. 131/5
View dismissal WPUJC Vaas lbw b Yuvraj Singh 17 23 29 1 0 58.62
36.3 trapped in front. No doubt about this one! It landed around off stump, full, turned in, Vaas tried to play across the line, missed and was struck in front. 157/7
View dismissal KMDN Kulasekara st †Dhoni b Harbhajan Singh 12 31 23 0 0 52.17
41.1 stumped by the doosra. The batsman was well down the track, had no clue as the ball left him and was stranded. India edge towards the series win 190/8
View dismissal T Thushara c Raina b Khan 40 44 29 2 2 137.93
46.3 And India have won the series. First time they have beaten Sri Lanka in a bilateral series of ODIs in Sri Lanka. Thushara swung the full delivery straight to Raina at deep midwicket. The players get into a huddle of joy. Beyond the boundary, the chairman of selectors Vengsarkar shakes hands with Gary Kirsten. 212/10
View dismissal BAW Mendis run out (Sharma/Khan) 2 14 11 0 0 18.18
44.3 from Khan, Mendis is run out. It was pushed to backward point and didn't set off for the single. Thushara had rushed across and Mendis, late in responding, was never going to get to the other side to beat the throw to Zaheer from Rohit Sharma. India just a wicket away now. 206/9
