Sharma to Paranavitana, OUT, Ishant Sharma nails Paranavitana. It was a length delivery in the zone outside off and Paranavitana went for the off drive away from his body. Mistake. The ball shaped away and took the edge.

NT Paranavitana c †Dhoni b Sharma 8 (17m 15b 2x4 0x6) SR: 53.33

Sri Lanka 15/1   TM Dilshan 7* (9b 1x4)   I Sharma 2-0-6-1

Ojha to Dilshan, 1 no ball, OUT, Dilshan is run out It was pushed to the off, not all that far away from silly point where Vijay lunged out his left hand and stopped it. Dilshan is looking for a run, is now surprised that Vijay had stopped it and tries to turn back. Vijay flicks the ball to Dhoni who breaks the stumps with Dilshan's bat in the air. Oh dear Dilshan is gone at the stroke of lunch. Smart work from Vijay. Not so smart from Dilshan, who was batting so well. And it was a no ball. Oh well.

TM Dilshan run out 41 (118m 70b 4x4 0x6) SR: 58.57

Sri Lanka 102/2   KC Sangakkara 48* (65b 4x4 1x6)   PP Ojha 2.3-0-14-0

Ojha to Sangakkara, OUT, Sanga has been caught at the boundary! There was a long-on in place and he still went for the big hit and is now enraged with himself as he storms off. He went down the track and lifted it straight to long-on! Sanga can't believe what he has done.Earlier in this Test series, he mowed a long-hop straight to deep midwicket. Now this.

KC Sangakkara c Sehwag b Ojha 75 (173m 114b 5x4 2x6) SR: 65.78

Sri Lanka 157/3   DPMD Jayawardene 22* (64b 3x4)   PP Ojha 11.4-0-47-1

Ojha to DPMD Jayawardene, OUT, Ojha has been bowling well for some time now and gets his man this time. Height is the problem says Hawk eye. This is what happened: It landed on the middle stump line and straightened. Mahela pushed outside the line as he stretched forward to defend and was struck in front of the middle. Hawk eye shows that it would have bounced well over the middle stump.

DPMD Jayawardene lbw b Ojha 56 (188m 154b 3x4 0x6) SR: 36.36

Sri Lanka 241/4   TT Samaraweera 41* (97b 4x4)   PP Ojha 22-2-69-2

Ojha to Mathews, OUT, Got him with the arm ball. It landed around off stump and moved in. Angelo gets forward to defend and pushes outside the line. He was playing for the turn. There wasn't any. It would have hit the middle. Trapped! a just reward for Ojha who has bowled well in this Test

AD Mathews lbw b Ojha 45 (123m 84b 6x4 0x6) SR: 53.57

Sri Lanka 330/5   TT Samaraweera 77* (180b 8x4)   PP Ojha 30.3-4-80-3

Ojha to HAPW Jayawardene, OUT, Done in by that tendency to sweep. It was coming, you felt. It landed on middle and leg and turned and hit him in front of the middle stump. It would have gone to peg back the middle. No 4 for Ojha. There was a shout for lbw in the last delivery of the previous Ojha over when Pras went for another sweep shot. This time around he is gone.

HAPW Jayawardene lbw b Ojha 9 (38m 41b 1x4 0x6) SR: 21.95

Sri Lanka 359/6   TT Samaraweera 96* (214b 10x4)   PP Ojha 36.5-8-89-4

Sehwag to Randiv, OUT, He tries to break free from that leg-stump line and goes for a slog sweep. But this one is around off stump and he gets a top edge! It's a simple catch for Rahul at first slip. Laxman hugs Sehwag.

S Randiv c Dravid b Sehwag 8 (34m 30b 0x4 0x6) SR: 26.66

Sri Lanka 381/7   TT Samaraweera 110* (245b 10x4)   V Sehwag 5-0-8-1

Mishra to Malinga, OUT, No 1 for Mishra. It was the googly on the off stump line, Malinga went for the off drive and ended up edging it towards the non-striker. Mishra dives across take it.

SL Malinga c & b Mishra 4 (4m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Sri Lanka 386/8   TT Samaraweera 111* (246b 10x4)   A Mishra 36.5-2-130-1

Sharma to Mendis, OUT, The short delivery does the trick. Mendis stabs this one straight to gully. It was below chest-high, not quite a bouncer, but it proved enough to dislodge Mendis

BAW Mendis c Raina b Sharma 3 (47m 41b 0x4 0x6) SR: 7.31

Sri Lanka 421/9   TT Samaraweera 137* (288b 12x4 1x6)   I Sharma 22.3-6-68-2
