Mishra to Thirimanne, OUT, another one falls! This is going to get exciting folks.. Thirimanne wasn't showing much footwork in the last over and this time he tries to push a slider only to get a thin outside edge to the keeper. That stayed a touch low too

HDRL Thirimanne c †Dhoni b Mishra 7 (8m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 63.63

Raina to Jayawardene, OUT, he is gone! Ashwin takes a good forward-diving catch! Mahela ends his last innings with a cross-batted slog that he is not able to keep down.. The fielder at midwicket takes an excellent catch.. But after that previous shot, this was quite unlike Mahela..

DPMD Jayawardene c Ashwin b Raina 24 (34m 24b 4x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Ashwin to Dilshan, OUT, caught at deep square leg! Indian fielders come back to life as Kohli takes a well-judged catch at the boundary.. Ashwin's carrom-balls brought him a lot of wickets in the last game.. It's that ball again.. Dilshan goes for a sweep and gets a big top-edge.. looks like it's going over, but Kohli is at the boundary to gobble it up.

TM Dilshan c Kohli b Ashwin 18 (27m 16b 4x4 0x6) SR: 112.50

MM Sharma to MDKJ Perera, OUT, this is gone up in the air! KJP tries to swing again, but he is nowhere near the pitch.. This one was outside off and he tries to pull it off the front foot, only to get a thick leading edge to mid-off where Jadeja takes an easy catch

MDKJ Perera c Jadeja b MM Sharma 5 (4m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 71.42
