    0.4 edged and taken! Tyagi sends down the same delivery that angles across the stumps but instead of leaving it Tharanga goes for a drive without much footwork and edges straight into first slip's lap 0/1
    5.3 good catch! Zaheer again angles it across at short of a length, Dilshan sees room and tries to get four to the vacant third man but doesn't play the ball down enough and Gambhir at that fly slip takes a smart catch low to the ground, just the effort needed to stop Dilshan 42/2
    29.4 got em! Terrible ball but India won't mind! Short ball sits up, hurries onto Sangakkara who makes a meal of a pull shot, getting a top edge that goes up and settles in Raina's hands at midwicket 143/7
    9.1 another catch, that's three in three for India, a welcome change from recent matches! There is a short cover placed for a drive to the ball that is not quite full, and Mahela walks into that trap. He is slightly early into the drive, checks his shot and Kohli takes a sharp catch, with hands pointing skywards 60/3
    10.2 plumb! On the stumps, Samaraweera walks across the sticks in an attempt to flick to the leg side but is late on the shot and rapped in front, Sreesanth belts out an appeal and the umpire raises his finger, looked pretty straightforward to the naked eye 61/4
    13.5 madness! Zaheer bowls it short of a length on the body, Sangakkara rides the bounce and turns the ball toward Karthik at square leg and sets off, which gets Kandamby bolting down his end, but then the captain hesitates and turns back, by which time Kandamby has nearly reached him, Karthik releases the ball on the bounce to Zaheer who collects and breaks the sticks with the batsman short ... talk about being sold down the river 66/5
    18.2 good catch in the deep and what a silly shot from this kid! Mishra slows it up and tosses the ball invitingly, Perera in a rush of blood skips out and slogs aimlessly, the ball goes up and up in the air and out at deep midwicket covers a long distance and dives to his right as he takes a nice catch 84/6
    44.2 timber! Randiv cannot pick the quicker googly that skids through after pitching and slides under the cross-batted shot to hit leg stump, end of a good half-century 209/9
    43.3 gone this time, losing his cool and taking on a short ball outside off, the result is a top edge that Yuvraj keeps his eyes on as he runs across from backward point 202/8
    46.1 all over, as Welegedara swings across the line to a wider, slower, well tossed up delivery outside off stump and misses, and Dhoni collects and breaks the sticks 213/10
