View dismissal NT Paranavitana c †Dhoni b Sharma 111 289 233 12 0 47.63
69.2 85.6 mph, jaffa from Ishant and he's sent Paranavitana back. Lovely ball after the previous one, this one angled away just a touch from back of a length. Paranavitana poked at it uncertainly off the backfoot and got a healthy edge, with Dhoni having to dive across to take the catch. After one and a half days of waiting, Paranavitana will be disappointed he could only add one run to his score. 259/3
View dismissal TM Dilshan c †Dhoni b Mithun 25 52 24 6 0 104.16
10.1 80.8 mph, Mithun has struck! Dilshan is gone! Very well-directed bouncer, angling in from off to leg, Dilshan is hurried into the pull and can only get some glove through to Dhoni. Lots of effort put into the ball, and as it happens so often, a wicket immediately after drinks. First Test wicket for Mithun and he deserved it. He's bowled exceptionally well to Dilshan all morning. 55/1
View dismissal KC Sangakkara* c Tendulkar b Sehwag 103 198 145 12 0 71.03
61.1 51.7 mph, Sehwag's golden arm sends back Sangakkara with a shocker of a delivery! Short and asking to be deposited well beyond midwicket, Sanga picked out Sachin Tendulkar some 15 yards in front of the boundary and he made no mistake. 236/2
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene lbw b Sharma 48 123 78 6 0 61.53
87.5 86.6 mph, this time Harper has sent him on his way! Ishant pegs Mahela back again with one of those in-duckers, it rears nastily from off and middle towards leg stump. Mahela misses the attempted flick and is hit in front of middle and leg, a tad high. He was well back, and hawkeye says it would have his the top of leg. Ishant has his reward, this is a wonderful spell ladies and gentlemen. 322/5
View dismissal TT Samaraweera lbw b Mithun 0 7 7 0 0 0.00
70.4 81.8 mph, he's nailed him this time! No need for a fielder if you can do it yourself eh Mithun! It's again that ball of his, which slants in late from outside off. He had Dilshan in trouble with it on day one, and now he's got Samaraweera. It may have hit him marginally outside off, and Hawkeye says it would have clipped the skin off the top of middle stump. 260/4
View dismissal AD Mathews c Laxman b Sharma 41 101 58 6 0 70.68
91.6 85.4 mph, Ishant nips out one more! Mathews is gone, after exhibiting great restraint in the last couple of overs, this time he hangs his bat at one outside off. It flies off the outside edge to the right of VVS Laxman at second slip, who tumbled to his right and takes a smart catch. Ishant! What a spell! Respect! 344/6
View dismissal HAPW Jayawardene lbw b Mithun 27 48 26 2 1 103.84
97.6 82.4 mph, Mithun strikes, that's the end of Prasanna, he was looking to play it to the leg side after moving across the stumps, he misses and his pad gets in the way of a ball that was going on to hit middle 393/7

View dismissal G Gambhir lbw b Malinga 2 2 2 0 0 100.00
0.2 89.7 mph, Gambhir has succumbed! Similar ball from Malinga, a hint of inward movement from off stump towards middle and leg, Gambhir seemed to fall over as he tried to flick. He misses and is caught plumb in front of the stumps, but has himself to blame here, trying to play across the line before getting his eye in. Sri Lanka have struck a huge blow here and Malinga's wonderful comeback to Test cricket continues! 2/1
View dismissal V Sehwag c Paranavitana b Welegedara 109 175 118 19 1 92.37
36.2 81.2 mph, Sehwag will not want to see this replay! Welegedara can't believe his luck, the ball is banged short and angled wide across the right-hander, the ball moved away far more than Sehwag imagined and he reached out rooted to the crease and tried to carve it over point, tame edge to first slip who's wide 169/4
View dismissal R Dravid run out (Malinga/Mathews) 18 64 33 1 0 54.54
12.2 Mathews to Sehwag, Dravid has got himself out here trying to run a totally needless second! Sehwag drove to mid off and they took off for a quick single. Malinga misfielded and Dravid belatedly decided to take a second one, but was caught well short at the non-striker's end. Huge and unnecessary loss for India here! Fatal error in judgement and Dravid is distraught. He should be. He was late on the decision to run two, and could have done away with it altogether. 68/2
View dismissal SR Tendulkar lbw b Muralitharan 8 29 21 1 0 38.09
20.4 52.6 mph, Murali moves to 793 and what a wicket to pick! Full on middle, Sachin went for the sweep and missed it, there was not much turn and it would have hit the top of middle and leg. Sachin is gone and India are in come strife here. 101/3
View dismissal VVS Laxman c Dilshan b Malinga 22 94 61 2 0 36.06
39.3 86.0 mph, another bad shot and Laxman plays right on to Sri Lanka's hands! The ball is short on the off stump and Laxman fetches it and pulls rather half heartedly, no real conviction in the shot, top edge lands safely down Dilshan's throat at deep square leg, the trap was set and he fell right in to it 178/5
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c DPMD Jayawardene b Muralitharan 52 91 64 8 1 81.25
56.6 50.1 mph, 795! Comes round the wicket and draws Yuvraj forward to defend, just a hint of turn and takes the outside edge, easy catch for Mahela at first slip 259/7
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† b Muralitharan 33 64 47 4 0 70.21
54.5 53.8 mph, 794! And watta ball! Sharp turn from the rough outside off, Dhoni gets his foot across but half heartedly hangs his bat out, bowled through the gate, wasn't expecting so much turn 252/6
View dismissal Harbhajan Singh st †HAPW Jayawardene b Herath 2 12 8 0 0 25.00

62.3 50.8 mph, Murali inches ahead, the countdown continues! That is number 796 and one of the easier ones too.. Another sharp offspinner to Ojha who is clearly concerned about the doosra so he stays back and hangs the bat in the hope that the ball will somehow hit the middle of his blade. No such luck this time and the edge flies to first slip. 266/9
View dismissal A Mithun b Muralitharan 8 7 10 2 0 80.00
64.6 no need to appeal this time! Murali raises his arms in joy he has yet another five-wicket haul, his 67th! It was another fastish offspinner that curved in and then took off from outside off, Mithun was late on the cut and no shame in that, this ball has bamboozled far better batsmen. Leg stump is breached, leg bail is down, India are all out. Murali has 797 Test wickets. What a champ! 276/10

0.3 83.7 mph, Malinga owns Gambhir as far as this Test is concerned! There shall be no epic rearguard from Gauti this time! This one was bowled with a slight angle from over the wickets, it lands on off and goes straight on without deviation. Gambhir pokes his bat at it unnecessarily and without any conviction and the outside edge flies into Prasanna's gloves. India are in more trouble. 0/1
View dismissal V Sehwag c DPMD Jayawardene b Welegedara 31 54 30 6 0 103.33
10.3 Chanaka Welegedera has taken out Sehwag. What a wonderful catch from Mahela Jayawardene. It was short in length and angled across Sehwag. He reached out to punch it on the up, ended up playing away from the body as the ball tailed away and it flew to left of backward point. Mahela lunged to his left, reached out over his head and grabbed a very good catch. And boy is he delighted or what? And why wouldn't he be? Huge wicket this. 42/2
View dismissal R Dravid c Sangakkara b Malinga 44 209 152 3 0 28.94
52.4 Malinga has removed Dravid against the run of play! It is Dravid's old failing, failing to keep the flick down as he works it off his pads. Malinga got some reverse again and it ended outside leg and was asking to be flicked. Dravid obliged but it went quickly in the air, straight to Sanga at leg gully who took a sharp catch. BIG blow. 161/3

54.3 Malinga has turned this Test firmly Sri Lanka's way with another fast yorker! Sachin was probably expecting it to reverse down the leg, but this 139 kph thunderbolt was headed straight for the base of leg stump. Sachin was looking to flick and missed the ball, it struck him flush on the back boot and the umpire makes the right decision. Malinga you beauty! 172/4

100.2 Muralitharan to Sharma, And now we have a run-out! lunges forward and steers it towards short third man, they risk the single and Mathews fires a flat throw that hits the base of the stumps! Laxman's bat is on the line as the bail leaves the groove, Prasanna Jayawardene appeals and the third umpire takes a look, the affable Murali smiles, he has one last shot at 800. Will he, won't he? 314/9
View dismissal Yuvraj Singh c DPMD Jayawardene b Muralitharan 5 23 14 1 0 35.71
59.3 798! Murali gets Yuvraj in almost the same fashion as he did in the first innings. Sharp offspinner turning from middle towards first slip. Yuvraj obliged by edging it along its way into Mahela's hands. It kept a little low but went cleanly in. Umpire Harper confirms the decision. 181/5
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† b Malinga 4 7 5 1 0 80.00
60.5 oh boy! Malinga has blown away Dhoni with a ball very similar to the one that got Tendulkar! That came in from that uncomfortable angle, homing in on legstump line and then straightening a tad as it crunched past Dhoni's toes into the base of leg and middle. Captain cool had no clue about that one and India have lost a big wicket. 186/6
View dismissal Harbhajan Singh lbw b Muralitharan 8 13 14 1 0 57.14
63.6 see you later. Murali picks up 799! Doosra angling into middle and off from wide of the crease and Harbhajan tries the paddle sweep again. Terrible shot selection. He misses, the ball straightens and hits him in front of off. It would have taken out off. Harper agrees. 197/7
View dismissal A Mithun lbw b Malinga 25 51 59 5 0 42.37
81.3 Mithun has lasted exactly one ball of Malinga mayhem! That was as plumb as they come. Scorching reverse swinging yorker pins him in front of off stump. Harper took a moment thinking about it, but it was plumb the moment it left Malinga's hand. Screamer of a delivery! 246/8

Ojha lunges forward, edges it and Mahela falls to his left and takes the catch at first slip! No need to look anywhere for confirmation, straightforward and Murali is ecstatic.
