35.1

Tiwary to Thirimanne, no run, and does he have another wicket? Thirimanne looks to sweep a shortish ball, off the thigh pad and it loops up to Dhoni, did it hit his bat after the thigh pad, very tough to tell even after the replays, India were convinced, the umpire wasn't

45.1

Tiwary to Mendis, OUT, third for Tiwary! Mendis looked to reverse-sweep, he's bowled by a flighted legbreak, Tiwary can do no wrong here, send him up the order today when India bat, this is his best bowling figures in ODI and domestic one-dayers as well

NLTC Perera c Raina b Tiwary 2 (3m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Sri Lanka 218/7   MK Tiwary 8-1-36-4
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

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?

49.4

Tiwary to Malinga, SIX, Malinga murders that to the midwicket boundary, he charged out, Tiwary sent it short but that doesn't stop Malinga, who swings it for six

49.5

Tiwary to Malinga, 1 run, down the track and clubbed towards long-on

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   MK Tiwary 10-1-61-4
