Ojha to Dilshan, OUT, gone! Tossed it up, Dilshan's eyes lit up, came down the track and smacked it hard but straight to a perfectly-positioned VVS Laxman at short extra cover, India will be mightily relieved. Very sharp catch from Lax. Oh dear Dilshan has missed out on a easy ton here. He was so much in command but he is gone. Poof. Against the run of play

TM Dilshan c Laxman b Ojha 54 (85m 42b 10x4 0x6) SR: 128.57

Sri Lanka 99/1   NT Paranavitana 35* (69b 5x4)   PP Ojha 4.1-0-17-1

Sharma to Paranavitana, OUT, Fatal inside-edge! It was a gentle short-of-length delivery outside off stump and Paranavitana went for the cut. Inside edge and gone! Ishant sticks his tongue out. Paranavitana falls after reaching his hundred. Enter Mahela Jayawardene. It's his SSC. It's his field of dreams. Let's see what he does today.

NT Paranavitana b Sharma 100 (276m 221b 10x4 1x6) SR: 45.24

Sri Lanka 273/2   KC Sangakkara 105* (173b 12x4)   I Sharma 11-2-60-1

Sehwag to Sangakkara, OUT, Sanga's long vigil ends. It was a slightly quicker delivery that turned away from the off stump, Sanga tried to punch it to point and got a thick edge. It went quickly to Dravid at first slip but he pouches it safely. Fine long innings ends. Sanga is really disappointed and slowly trudges off. Out for 219. The captain departs.

KC Sangakkara c Dravid b Sehwag 219 (399m 335b 29x4 0x6) SR: 65.37

Sri Lanka 466/3   DPMD Jayawardene 75* (142b 10x4)   V Sehwag 13.3-0-43-1

Harbhajan Singh to DPMD Jayawardene, OUT, And Mahela is out. Harbhajan's first wicket. It was flighted from round the stumps and Mahela flicked it to short midwicket. Tame end to what was yet another stylish knock.

DPMD Jayawardene c Raina b Harbhajan Singh 174 (358m 244b 20x4 1x6) SR: 71.31

Sri Lanka 642/4   TT Samaraweera 76* (121b 8x4)   Harbhajan Singh 42.4-4-147-1
