    7.4 full, straight and gone! Backed away to go over mid-off but he was late on the shot. Thunderbolt at 147.5kph Surprised by the length. Looks like he was preparing himself for a length ball, saw this suddenly coming towards his stumps and by the time the bat came down, the timber had been knocked out. 54/2
    4.5 hit straight to mid-off, good catch! Looks to step out and clear the infield, didn't hit it as well as he would've liked. Bat face turned in his hand, Saini at six feet and little more wasn't going to drop that. 38/1
    13.2 the thigh five from Dhawan at long-on! Deceived Kusal in flight as he stepped out, Kuldeep also tossed it wider so he had to reach out to the delivery, and because of that he didn't generate the same power. Dhawan had to move a fair but to his right, held on with the ropes within touching distance 97/4
    11.3 beats him in the air and gone! Stepped out to heave, Kuldeep got this to drift away and beat the swing, Pant whips the bails off in a jiffy 82/3
    14.5 he's gloved this to the keeper! It's pure pace that gets him! Short at 144, on the body. Superbly directed, Rajapaksa had little time to get out of the way, went through with the pull and managed to glove. Got into a tangle, got steep. 104/5
    16.6 hits top of off with a slower ball! Lovely change of pace, the batsman backed away to go over cover, completely deceived. This was bowled at 114kph 117/6
    18.2 superb yorker-length delivery, looks to squeeze it through the infield but ends up chipping it straight to mid-off. 128/7

    18.5 deceived by the knuckleball that he delivers on a length, he backs away and looks to go over cover, ends up slicing it to the fielder inside the ring. Superb bowling. 130/8
    18.6 backs away to pull, Shardul follows him with a short ball to cramp him and the tame pull lobs straight to square leg. 130/9

    9.1 Rahul is the first to go! Fails to pick Hasaranga's googly, delivered from wide of the crease. Comes down the wicket, with an intent of going inside out, possibly. Ends up swinging at thin air, and that goes on and just strikes the top of off. Hasaranga raises his index finger in celebration. A scratchy, yet entertaining Rahul innings comes to an end 71/1
    11.2 this could be close! Sri Lanka refer after there's a leg-before appeal turned down as Dhawan misses a sweep that looks quite adjacent. A big stride forward, no doubt, but this straightens after pitching around middle. No inside edge, either. Pitches inline, impact inline, and three reds as it just nicks the leg stump. Hasaranga has struck again! 86/2
    17.1 gets his man with a short ball! Smart bowling, as he digs this in short, but leaves it outside off, inviting Iyer to take him on. This was always going to be difficult to control, especially with the kind of pace Kumara generates, and that takes it to deep square leg's safe hands 137/3
