46.1

Ashwin to Herath, no run, Herath looks to sweep but is struck on the pads ,outside off, a mild lbw appeal

46.2

Ashwin to Herath, no run, Herath plays inside the line of that one, struck on the pads

46.3

Ashwin to Herath, no run, flighted ball is slapped to short cover

46.4

Ashwin to Herath, 1 leg bye, flighted ball and they get a leg-bye after Herath misses the sweep

Sri Lanka 219/7   HMRKB Herath 0* (4b)

47.1

Tiwary to Herath, no run, flighted ball is worked to short fine leg

47.2

Tiwary to Herath, no run, could have had a five-for there, that pitched on middle on leg and spun towards off, Herath went for the sweep, misses and is struck on the thigh pad, height was not a problem, but the umpire probably though that was missing off, close call that, looked heading for off

47.3

Tiwary to Herath, 1 run, whacked to midwicket for a single

Sri Lanka 220/8   HMRKB Herath 1* (7b)

48.1

Sehwag to Herath, 2 runs, another wicket? no, that swipe from Herath was in the air for a long time, but still landed safe at deep midwicket

48.2

Sehwag to Herath, 1 run, worked to extra cover this time

48.4

Sehwag to Herath, 1 run, full ball is defended to the leg side, Sehwag goes up in appeal for the lbw, Dhoni is quickly after the ball as the batsmen sneak a run, Dhoni's throw is way off target though

48.6

Sehwag to Herath, 1 run, pitched up and a tailender's slog towards deep midwicket

Sri Lanka 233/8   HMRKB Herath 6* (11b)

49.1

Tiwary to Herath, no run, Herath again looks to swipe, misses and is struck on the pad, the ball rolls back towards Dhoni

49.2

Tiwary to Herath, FOUR, for a moment Tiwary thought he had his fifth, Herath charged out and swung it towards deep midwicket, ball was in the air for a long time, but lands between long-on and midwicket

49.3

Tiwary to Herath, 1 run, in the air again, swept again, the ball lands short of the man in the deep, three more deliveries, can he get a five-for?

49.6

Tiwary to Herath, SIX, whoah! that is the shot of the innings, Herath finishes off the innings in style, he's a great tailender to watch, skips down the track and demolishes that one over wide long-on for another six, an expensive final over but that isn't going to wipe the smile off Tiwary's face

Sri Lanka 251/8   HMRKB Herath 17* (15b 1x4 1x6)
