Steyn to Gambhir, no run, three in a row and there's a confident appeal this time, holds the length back and the batsman tries to dab it to third man, didn't look like an edge

Steyn to Dilshan, 1 run, Dropped Praveen Kumar the culprit, Dilshan pulls a short delivery and the ball dips towards Praveen at fine leg, he runs forward, covers enough ground, dives and fumbles despite getting his fingers underneath the ball, u can't let Dilshan off early
