India v Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka won by 4 wickets (with 9 balls remaining)

0.3

Kulasekara to Gambhir, OUT, freak dismissal, a length ball on the pads, Gambhir misses on the flick, the ball hits the protruding thigh pad and ricochets on to the leg stump. The scorebook will say: Gambhir b Kulasekara 0

G Gambhir b Kulasekara 0 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 1/1   V Sehwag 1* (1b)   KMDN Kulasekara 0.3-0-1-1

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

V Kohli c †Sangakkara b Welegedara 2 (6m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

India 4/2   V Sehwag 2* (2b)   UWMBCA Welegedara 1-0-3-1

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

Yuvraj Singh c Samaraweera b Welegedara 0 (8m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

India 16/3   V Sehwag 14* (8b 3x4)   UWMBCA Welegedara 1.3-0-3-2

8.5

Kulasekara to Dhoni, OUT, edged and taken! Dhoni cannot contain himself, again going for a drive to the off but this time he doesn't get to the pitch of a ball just fractionally held back on length and twirls a little nick to Sangakkara who takes it low to his left

MS Dhoni c †Sangakkara b Kulasekara 14 (23m 19b 3x4 0x6) SR: 73.68

India 47/4   V Sehwag 30* (21b 5x4)   KMDN Kulasekara 4.5-0-24-2

10.4

Kulasekara to Sehwag, OUT, that's No. 301 for Sanga, Kulasekara is over the moon, it's Sehwag's wicket! Dug in short, Sehwag looks to upper-cut it, but it follows him and the edge nestles in Sanga's gloves

V Sehwag c †Sangakkara b Kulasekara 42 (52m 27b 7x4 0x6) SR: 155.55

India 60/5   SK Raina 1* (5b)   KMDN Kulasekara 5.4-0-26-3

34.2

Dilshan to Jadeja, OUT, he's gone, skidder, what a big strike by Dilshan, he doesn't even bother appealing. it's bowled from colse the stumps, Jadeja defends, playing for the spin, the ball - just changed - skids on with the arm, and he appeals only as a second thought because it's dead plumb. Good hand by Jadeja, though

RA Jadeja lbw b Dilshan 38 (93m 64b 0x4 0x6) SR: 59.37

India 166/6   SK Raina 63* (83b 5x4)   TM Dilshan 3.2-0-12-1

42.5

Randiv to Harbhajan Singh, OUT, another wicket down, sweeps all over a topspinner, misses and it's head damn straight, he is hit smack in front of the stumps

Harbhajan Singh lbw b Randiv 11 (31m 26b 0x4 0x6) SR: 42.30

India 213/7   SK Raina 98* (108b 9x4 1x6)   S Randiv 8.5-0-47-1

44.5

Kulasekara to Khan, OUT, it's hit like a bullet towards Samaraweera at extra cover, and he takes his second nice catch of the day, fingers pointing up, body leaning back slightly, absorbing the force of the shot through soft hands, India eight down

Z Khan c Samaraweera b Kulasekara 16 (10m 8b 2x4 1x6) SR: 200.00

India 233/8   SK Raina 102* (112b 9x4 1x6)   KMDN Kulasekara 8.5-0-47-4

45.3

Welegedara to Raina, OUT, that's his first unsmart shot of the innings, takes the risk, goes for the slog, misses, and the ball is full and straight and hits the middle of middle

SK Raina b Welegedara 106 (152m 115b 10x4 1x6) SR: 92.17

India 237/9   A Nehra 0* (1b)   UWMBCA Welegedara 8.3-1-47-3
