View dismissal G Gambhir b Kulasekara 3 12 6 0 0 50.00
2.2 an unusual dismissal but Sri Lanka will take it, bowled round his legs is Gautam Gambhir, short of a good length on leg stump, he shuffles across to work it square, misses, it grazes the flap of the pads and knocks back leg stump, the hosts have struck early 7/1
View dismissal V Sehwag run out (Perera) 96 132 97 10 0 98.96
31.3 Perera to Kohli, Run-out, Sehwag is walking back, better from Thisara, he held back his length this time a touch while bowling it straight, Kohli dropped it into the off side, Sehwag wanted the single and had taken a start but Kohli sent him back, Thisara collected and did superbly to throw down the stumps at the non-striker's end to catch Sehwag short. He's missed his century 180/2
View dismissal V Kohli c sub (SMSM Senanayake) b Perera 106 158 113 9 0 93.80
39.6 Kohli has to go, a sharp catch at extra cover, was the slower one, Kohli picked it and struck it well, but he was looking to clear extra cover there but couldn't get the elevation, Sachitra Senanayake, the substitute fielder, presumably for Kulasekara, stayed alert and snapped it well 228/4
View dismissal RG Sharma b Mathews 5 10 8 0 0 62.50
33.6 Angelo's struck, two wickets in quick time, did that nip back in? Short of a good length, landed on the off and appeared to just nip back in, Rohit was late on it and was eventually beaten through the gate, it knocked back off stump 191/3
View dismissal SK Raina c sub (SMSM Senanayake) b Perera 50 75 45 3 1 111.11
49.1 a meaty full toss but Raina can't cash in this time, swings hard, gets the top edge and Senanayake, the substitute, who's already taken one good catch this innings, makes no mistake. He was at square leg and he turned, ran a few steps and judged it to perfection 307/5
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† c Thirimanne b Perera 35 49 29 3 1 120.68
49.2 he's played that shot well this innings and he struck that one hard too, but the whiplash fails to clear long-off this time, Thirimanne, standing there, moves back a few steps and takes it over his head 307/6

View dismissal WU Tharanga c Sehwag b Ashwin 28 87 47 2 0 59.57
18.5 short and wide and after four dot balls, Tharanga looks for a release off a short delivery with some width, tries to slash it through point, gets a thick edge and it ricocheted off Dhoni's glove towards first slip 86/2
View dismissal TM Dilshan lbw b Pathan 6 8 6 1 0 100.00
1.2 appeal for lbw and the umpire has given it out! That one swung in to the right-hander as well, landed on middle and leg and appeared to strike him in line as he tried to whip that off the back foot, would it have gone over? And did he get an inside edge? Umpire Oxenford's finger went up fairly quickly. We need to have another look, but Sehwag's lapse doesn't cost India much 9/1
View dismissal KC Sangakkara b Yadav 133 208 151 12 0 88.07
47.1 got him, he's bowled him, Sanga moved well across to scoop that fine but missed, that was aimed at leg stump from round the wicket and that's where it was heading when Sanga failed to make contact 269/7
View dismissal LD Chandimal c †Dhoni b Yadav 13 25 19 1 0 68.42
25.2 Chandimal has to go, short of a good length and a bit of away movement, Chandimal fishes for that one, gets a thin edge and is snapped up by Dhoni 117/3
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* lbw b Ojha 12 13 8 1 0 150.00
28.3 trapped in front is Mahela! Angling in from round the wicket and it held its line, Mahela had made his mind up to play the paddle-sweep, struck him in line, but we need another replay to see if that would have gone on to hit the stumps, the umpire thought so and Sri Lanka are in trouble now 132/4
View dismissal AD Mathews c Gambhir b Khan 7 31 17 0 0 41.17
35.2 Mathews has been caught at cover and Sri Lanka have lost another one, made room, had made up his mind there, short of a good length and his intention was to clear the field on the off-side, mistimed it and spooned an easy catch to Gambhir, appeared to be a slower one from Zaheer 172/5
View dismissal HDRL Thirimanne lbw b Ashwin 7 14 10 0 0 70.00
38.2 given out lbw, the carrom ball, that spun in towards Lahiru, Ashwin was bowling round the wicket, Lahiru went across to work it into the leg side, missed and was caught on the pads. The umpire Martinez gave it out immediately, though the question is whether or not it would have missed leg. We'll need another replay for that. Meanwhile, Lahiru has to go 191/6
View dismissal NLTC Perera c Kohli b Pathan 44 52 28 3 1 157.14
48.2 holes out, that pitched on a length and he smashed it straight but didn't get hold of it, found Virat Kohli at long-on, Perera walks back, though we may just have Kula walk in 275/9
View dismissal HMRKB Herath run out (Raina) 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
47.3 Yadav to Perera, low full toss and that's been drilled towards long-off, Raina collects and scores a direct hit from the deep to catch Herath short as he attempts a second, Umesh did it smartly there, didn't collect the throw, allowed it to roll onto the stumps, Herath is run-out 271/8
