India in Sri Lanka ODI Series - 5th ODI

Sri Lanka v India

India won by 20 runs

5.1

Perera to Rahane, OUT, Rahane has been given out lbw, this one nipped back in, did he get an inside edge? Landed on the off stump and moved back in, struck him on the pads, no inside edge, struck him in line and the umpire thought that was out. We just need to see if height was an issue, may not have been. Sri Lanka strike

AM Rahane lbw b Perera 9 (22m 17b 1x4 0x6) SR: 52.94

India 29/1   G Gambhir 16* (14b 2x4)   NLTC Perera 2.1-0-13-1

14.3

Pradeep to Kohli, OUT, Trapped in front, Pradeep angled that in towards middle and leg, it moved in, Kohli likes to shuffle and more often than not he connects well, he missed it this time and was caught in front of middle and leg as he was trying to flick it into the leg side. The umpire checks for a no-ball, Pradeep's foot landed behind the line so Kohli has to go. Replays also show the ball would have clipped leg stump

V Kohli lbw b Pradeep 23 (42m 35b 2x4 0x6) SR: 65.71

India 77/2   G Gambhir 40* (35b 6x4)   N Pradeep 1.3-0-7-1

16.6

Pradeep to Sharma, OUT, Rohit is bowled! Lovely ball from Pradeep, that late movement proving the batsman's undoing, angled in towards middle and then moved away it seemed after pitching, just when he tried closing the face there to play it towards midwicket, it moved away and knocked back off

RG Sharma b Pradeep 4 (12m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 44.44

India 87/3   G Gambhir 46* (41b 7x4)   N Pradeep 3-0-16-2

37.1

Malinga to Tiwary, OUT, Tiwary has to go now, banged in short on middle and he had few answers, tried to fend it into the leg side, took his eyes off that delivery, a good bouncer, got it on the top of the bat and was comfortably caught at short third man

MK Tiwary c Perera b Malinga 65 (81m 68b 6x4 0x6) SR: 95.58

India 197/4   G Gambhir 85* (94b 7x4)   SL Malinga 5.1-0-27-1

37.2

Malinga to Raina, OUT, Raina goes first ball, Malinga is on a hat-trick, short of a good length outside off and he plays at that one, guides it straight to first slip, remember he was dropped at slip by Mahela in the fourth ODI

SK Raina c Thirimanne b Malinga 0 (3m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 197/5   G Gambhir 85* (94b 7x4)   SL Malinga 5.2-0-27-2

38.6

Senanayake to Gambhir, OUT, Sri Lanka are hitting back, Gambhir falls, short outside off and a bit of away spin there, landed on the seam and spat away, good bounce there, appeared to turn it into the leg side but found Malinga stationed at point, came off the leading edge

G Gambhir c Malinga b Senanayake 88 (173m 99b 7x4 0x6) SR: 88.88

India 213/6   MS Dhoni 9* (5b 2x4)   SMSM Senanayake 9-0-47-1

48.5

Malinga to Dhoni, OUT, Wicket no. 200 for Malinga in ODIs, short outside off, Dhoni went for the pull, got a nick and Chandimal took it in front of his face

MS Dhoni c †Chandimal b Malinga 58 (57m 38b 8x4 1x6) SR: 152.63

India 290/7   IK Pathan 28* (26b 2x4)   SL Malinga 9.5-0-63-3
