Senanayake to RG Sharma, 3 runs, now he sweeps this from outside off, he is not in control as there is a bit of bottom edge, but he manages to beat the short fine leg fielder

10.1

Herath to RG Sharma, no run, comes down the pitch but Herath shortens his length, he has to defend

10.2

Herath to RG Sharma, no run, a loud appeal for lbw as the batsman misses his slog, but this one was just going down the leg side

10.3

Herath to RG Sharma, OUT, soft dismissal! Rohit makes room and looks to drive through cover but he neither tries to go over nor tries to keep it down, plays it straight into the hands of short cover. That's a good low catch by Sena there. Not the first time he has been out like this..
