0.3

Kulasekara to Rahane, no run, now this one tails in, smart bowling from Kula. Rahane gets solidly behind it and defends to off

0.4

Kulasekara to Rahane, 2 runs, he looks to whip this to the leg side, but gets a leading edge right in the gap between the cover and the point fielder.. they come back for an easy couple

0.5

Kulasekara to Rahane, no run, keeps it outside off and gets this one to dart away a touch, the batsman plays a loose punch as is beaten

India 4/0   KMDN Kulasekara 1-0-4-0
2.1

Kulasekara to Kohli, FOUR, oh what wrists! He takes a step down the pitch and whips this inswinging delivery through midwicket, all along the ground

2.2

Kulasekara to Kohli, no run, he takes a positive forward stride and pushes this length delivery to mid-off

2.3

Kulasekara to Kohli, no run, that almost kisses the outside edge! Kula is always a dangerous bowler. After bringing the last two in, this one straightens and beats the bat

2.4

Kulasekara to Kohli, no run, he comes forward and punches the length delivery firmly, but hits it to short cover

2.5

Kulasekara to Kohli, 1 run, well fielded by Herath at short fine leg.. He saves a certain boundary there. Kohli had just tried to clip it past him

2.6

Kulasekara to RG Sharma, 1 run, he comes forward and then opens the face to steer this length delivery down to third man

India 11/1   KMDN Kulasekara 2-0-10-0
15.1

Kulasekara to Kohli, SIX, fuller on off, Kohli doesn't want to wait, he thwacks this over wide long-on with ease! This is the ideal pace for him, a lot of bottom hand in that one

15.2

Kulasekara to Kohli, FOUR, follows it up with a murderous drive through cover.. The fielder couldn't get down in time.. hits it so hard this Kohli, using all timing and a lot of wrists

15.3

Kulasekara to Kohli, FOUR, this could be a drop here! Sena at deep midwicket misjudges this one.. It was a slower delivery and the batman went for a full-blooded pull, he doesn't get much timing.. Sena comes in a touch and it clears him.. poor judgement from the fielder

15.4

Kulasekara to Kohli, 1 run, this one is hammered down the ground.. What violence! Thisara does well at long on to keep this one in..

15.5

Kulasekara to Yuvraj Singh, 1 run, now Yuvi brings out a crisp drive to deep extra cover off a full delivery, a single only this time

15.6

Kulasekara to Kohli, no run, a good response from Kula! bowls a good yorker outside off and Kohli fails to make contact

India 111/2   KMDN Kulasekara 3-0-26-0
18.1

Kulasekara to Yuvraj Singh, OUT, a full toss is hit straight to long-off! Not sure if Sri Lanka really wanted that wicket at this stage. A relief for the Indian bench though. A man in form could have hit this ball anywhere, but Yuvraj chips it straight to the fielder

Yuvraj Singh c NLTC Perera b Kulasekara 11 (30m 21b 0x4 0x6) SR: 52.38

18.2

Kulasekara to Kohli, 1 run, full and wide outside off.. Kohli was shaping to play a sweep but adjusts late to guide it to third man

18.3

Kulasekara to Dhoni, 1 run, another full and wide outside off, Dhoni punches it down to long on with a cross-batted shot

18.4

Kulasekara to Kohli, no run, this is good bowling! He keeps it full and wide outside off, Kohli stretches but can't reach it.. this is inside the marker too

18.5

Kulasekara to Kohli, 1 run, another one wide outside off, very wide.. Kohli manages to take it on the full, but can only slice it to deep point

18.6

Kulasekara to Dhoni, 1 leg bye, this hits the toe off the batsman and this was almost as wide outside off as it can be, shows you how Dhoni was trying to play some kind of a sweep.. They pick up a single to third man.. But this is excellent stuff from Kula

India 123/3   KMDN Kulasekara 4-0-29-1
