    4.2 wow, talk about coming in the way of a screamer, Mathews is at short midwicket, Rohit's decided to have a go at this length ball, it's hit the inner part of the bat, but has still come blazing, straight into Mathews' hands, and remained there 12/1
    14.3 Dhawan's found deep midwicket, he's charged out targetting the region like Tharanga did, but on the first attempt, has picked the fielder 52/2
    18.3 right through him, some more of that inswing, very late, fuller length, Vijay drives from the crease, no foot movement at all, and leg stump is rattled through the gate 65/4
    15.5 big wicket, big wicket, Mathews digs it short into the body, Kohli hooks, and it is Malinga who takes it low on the fine-leg boundary, Kohli bangs bat into the ground as he departs 57/3
    28.1 DK goes, charges out, it is a tossed up carrom ball, goes straight, DK slogs outside the line, misses, and Sanga does the rest 118/5
    33.5 this is a tight one for the third umpire, they took the single with a nudge behind square leg, there was an overthrow, they went for another run, Raina had to rush back, Mathews took the bails off, Raina put in the dive, which should have seen him home, but the momentum when he crashed into the ground made the bat rise in the air 142/6
    not out
    37.4 he tries to reverse sweep a delivery that was around off and middle, but he had gone a little too much to the off side. He gets a healthy top edge that settles in the lap of Malinga at short third man 153/7
    37.5 he had no clue about this one! A quicker delivery, straight and aimed towards middle and leg, Shami went back to work it to the leg side, misses it and loses his leg stump 153/8
    40.3 sharp turn for Herath, sharp catch from Sanga, it was angled in, Ishant pushed at it, the ball jagged away after pitching, took a healthy edge, but Sanga was alert enough to snap it up, moving to his left 166/9
    44.5 that will do it, Malinga whizzes an inswinging length ball past the half-forward defensive push and rattles the stumps one last time today 187/10
