1.1

Welegedara to Sehwag, 1 run, a forward-defensive with an open face, gets a single to third man

1.2

Welegedara to Kohli, no run, beaten outside off, playing away from the body, playing for the swing, this one angles across and misses the edge

1.3

Welegedara to Kohli, 2 runs, shot, this time the ball is closer to the body, and he plays the push-drive as opposed to the big drive, and places it wide of extra cover

1.4

Welegedara to Kohli, no run, shorter this time, angling across, pushed to cover

1.5

Welegedara to Kohli, no run, and immediately big shout for lbw, jags back from outside off, hits him on the back pad, looks pretty straight but it sailing over the stumps

1.6

Welegedara to Kohli, OUT, he's gone! poor shot, cuts away at a wide delivery without any feet movement, and edges it through, this one didn't come in with the angle, rather held its line. Kohli had been edgy through his brief stay, and such a loose shot was always around the corner

3.3

Welegedara to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, and then there were three, Yuvraj goes chasing, and Samaraweera takes a good catch at second slip. Yuvraj's feet are rooted as he goes for this cut shot, and he ends up playing awkwardly and away from the body, the edge in but natural. Samaraweera times his jump at second slip to perfection and takes a nice overhead catch
