View dismissal KD Karthik c & b Perera 27 42 34 5 0 79.41
9.5 legcutter does it, and Karthik has gone for a middling score after a good start once again. This legcutter is slow off the pitch and Karthik looks to play on the up again, the bat slices in his hand and he offers a simple return catch 41/2
View dismissal NV Ojha lbw b Kulasekara 1 13 7 0 0 14.28
2.6 Perfecto! Big inswinger, hits him in front of off, headed for middle, Ojha's bat is nowhere near it, and Kula has struck beautifully. Umpire Koertzen's slow finger of death comes up one of the last few times. Inswinger, outsinger, inswinger, elementary 7/1
View dismissal V Kohli c BMAJ Mendis b Thushara 68 123 95 5 0 71.57
34.2 finally the frustration of finding the fielders again and again has got to Kohli. Looks to clear long-off this time, but doesn't get any power in this shot and holes out, Jeewan Mendis taking a nice safe catch 171/4
View dismissal YK Pathan c Perera b Randiv 44 63 41 6 1 107.31
23.6 another ugly slog sweep, and this time he connects - to his own demise. Gets too much under it and skies it to Perera at long-on 125/3
View dismissal RG Sharma b Randiv 32 43 40 1 0 80.00
37.1 sharp offbreak, through the gap, and hits the top of middle stump. In SRT style, he semi-squats, suggesting it stayed low, but the ball has hit the top of middle, he was just late in bringing the bat down 187/5
View dismissal SK Raina* c Kapugedera b Dilshan 19 28 18 2 0 105.55
41.1 Kapu you beauty! Rubbish delivery, short and wide, and Raina hits it powerfully straight off extra cover, but Kapugedara flies to his lift, goalkeeper-style, and pouches it. Captain gets captain 204/6
View dismissal RA Jadeja run out (Dilshan) 19 77 26 0 1 73.07
48.3 from Thushara, another high full toss, called no-ball this time as Jadeja manages to lob it towards midwicket. Ashwin wants the single but Jadeja is late to start, and Dilshan hits the only stump visible to him while running in from midwicket 255/7
View dismissal R Ashwin c & b Thushara 38 70 32 4 1 118.75
48.4 what a catch! Length ball, drilled back straight down the wicket, and Thushara sticks his left hand to it, and takes it on the second attempt. Just to show how superb a catch it is, Umpire Koertzen is looking towards the straight boundary and wondering where the ball is. No reaction from Thushara either after completing this stunner 259/8
Pankaj Singh not out 3 9 3 0 0 100.00
View dismissal AB Dinda c Kapugedera b Thushara 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
48.5 and Dinda walks out, slower ball, and he heaves it over towards long-on, completely deceived by it. Kapugedara takes another catch, and Thushara is on hat-trick 259/9

40.6 carrom ball does it! beautifully bowled. Chandimal comes down the track, knows he is beaten in the flight as this is short, but he looks to defend and plays for an off break. However, this one turns away and beats him all ends up, setting up an easy stumping 215/4
