21.6 to Kohli, 53.7 mph, Sri Lanka are celebrating, they have the big fish, what a take this at forward short leg, there have been some excellent ones this game, Kohli was in the mood to get on with it, tried to work this pitched up delivery with the spin, forced it on to the pad off a thick inside edge, it sped near the fielder's right leg and was dying on him when he reacted to dive and pouch it 45/4
27.3 to Dhawan, 53.8 mph, Dhawan gone now, all coming apart for India, tossed up full on the pads, Dhawan trying to work it against the turn, without much conviction, pops it towards the bowler instead, and this is another fine catch, Kaushal diving to his left to pluck it low, and throwing it up immediately in celebration 60/5
49.5 to Mishra, 52.7 mph, Sri Lanka have achieved one of the most incredible Test wins, Kaushal ends it, Mishra tries to force this tossed up ball, edges it on to pad, and silly point reacts superbly to go back and take a diving catch as the ball goes swirling over him, they check for the no-ball even as Sri Lanka celebrate, Kaushal is just fine 112/10
