View dismissal WU Tharanga c †Dhoni b Khan 8 24 20 1 0 40.00
4.5 82.5 mph, that confident shot off the previous ball doesn't do Tharanga much good, one again he chases a wide one, it was moving away as well, Tharanga had to reach out for that one, this time he edges, through to Dhoni, not much footwork from Tharanga there, Zaheer has his second 19/2
View dismissal TM Dilshan b Khan 4 11 7 0 0 57.14
2.3 bizarre dismissal, Dilshan had no idea where the ball went after he played that, he defended it off the front foot, it bounced near his feet and bounced back towards the stumps, Dilshan was looking for the single as he wasn't aware where the ball was, it bounced a second time before hitting the stumps, Dilshan is bowled 9/1
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c Kohli b Dinda 73 160 95 5 0 76.84
37.6 82.2 mph, gone! full and well outside off from Dinda, Sanga once more was backing away from the stumps, he had to reach across for this outside off delivery, he can only chop it tamely towards point, end of another fine innings from Sanga, seemed to have run out of patience towards the end, after re-building the innings with his typical effortless singles down the ground 182/5
View dismissal LD Chandimal lbw b Pathan 0 3 3 0 0 0.00
5.3 78.3 mph, Chandimal is gone for a duck, India are on top, he was caught on the crease as he looked to play that delivery to the leg side, it was on a length, pitching on middle, Chandimal missed, the ball moved in a hint and struck the pads, the umpires agrees, correctly, with Irfan's appeal and SL are 20/3 20/3
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* lbw b R Sharma 65 108 79 5 0 82.27
29.2 just as these two batsmen looked to be demoralising India with another of their solid stands, Rahul has the breakthrough, Mahela was caught on the backfoot playing that one, it pitched on middle and leg, went straight on, struck on the pads and looked to be hitting leg stump, Mahela isn't so sure, the umpire Dharmasena is, big wicket this 141/4

View dismissal G Gambhir run out (Udana) 102 166 101 10 0 100.99
38.3 from Mathews, run-out, terrific work from Udana, he might not have done too well with the ball, but his slide-rule throw could well have taken this game out of India's grasp, Gambhir pushed that towards mid-on and set off for a quick single, Udana was onto the ball and a direct hit catches Gambhir short, third umpire was called for, but Sangakkara in the dressing room was already signalling that it was out even before the replays came up, that's the 14th time Gambhir has been run out 196/5
View dismissal V Sehwag c sub (SMSM Senanayake) b Perera 3 6 6 0 0 50.00
1.4 74.3 mph, Sehwag falls early, looking to swing it through the cover but ends up giving an overhead catch to the substitute fielder at cover, as in the second match Perera removes Sehwag cheaply, Perera continues to find one-day cricket easy 8/1
View dismissal V Kohli c & b Herath 38 80 65 2 0 58.46
20.5 there's the wicket Sri Lanka were looking for, Kohli was looking to punch that short of length ball off the back foot, he tapped it straight back to Herath, who gleefully accepts the chance, it ws looking very easy for the Indian batsmen over the past hour or so 113/2
View dismissal MS Dhoni*† b Malinga 31 60 49 1 0 63.26
35.1 86.2 mph, and what a comeback, one of those deadly yorkers that confound batsmen so often, Dhoni looked to squeeze that one out but can't get bat in the way, crashes into the stumps, once again Sri Lanka strikes just when a partnership seemed to be calmly guiding India's chase. 180/3
View dismissal RG Sharma lbw b Malinga 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
35.2 85.9 mph, oh my goodness, all that build-up over Rohit v Tiwary, Rohit is gone for a golden duck, a full, swinging delivery from Malinga is too good for Rohit, he was looking to work it to the leg side, he misses and that strikes his just above the boot, and his critics will have plenty more to say now, and Malinga is doing his bit to silence those questioning his performances against India 180/4
