Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150

121.5

Sharma to Muralitharan, no run, lovely from Murali, his signature shot first up, falling over toward leg as he attempts to pull

121.6

Sharma to Muralitharan, no run, a touch fuller, Murali was eyeing the long-on boundary but he misses

Sri Lanka 509/8   M Muralitharan 0* (2b)

122.2

Mithun to Muralitharan, 1 run, Murali is off the mark, makes at least one more than Bradman did in his final innings, a not-too-convincing pull to deep backward square leg

122.4

Mithun to Muralitharan, no run, gets the front leg out of the way and looks to swipe this one, a not too well timed hit towards short midwicket

122.5

Mithun to Muralitharan, 1 run, short and well outside off, Murali's unconventional pull fetches him a single

Sri Lanka 513/8   M Muralitharan 2* (5b)

123.1

Sharma to Muralitharan, no run, back of a length ball angling into the batsman, who defends it towards point

123.2

Sharma to Muralitharan, no run, on middle stump this time, Murali gets behind the line and blocks it

123.3

Sharma to Muralitharan, no run, backs away and cuts it towards gully, slight fumble but there's no chance of taking a run

123.4

Sharma to Muralitharan, 2 runs, Murali backs away and swings this over mid-off, not too well timed so the ball doesn't roll all the way to the boundary

123.5

Sharma to Muralitharan, 1 run, whistling down leg, helped along to fine leg

Sri Lanka 520/8   M Muralitharan 5* (10b)
Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150
