Nuwan Kulasekara904414.88273020
47.2 to RG Sharma, Maharoof takes a catch. Seriously. No really. It was the slower one and Rohit top edged the paddle sweep and it lobbed to Maharoof at short fine-leg. Rohit out after making 41. 249/6
Lasith Malinga1005725.70305061
18.2 to V Kohli, Malinga takes out Virat. It kicked up outside off from short of length and Virat stabbed at it, bat away from the body. Edge and gone!. 100/2
40.6 to SK Raina, Lasith Malinga take a bow. What a ball! He was firing bounces so far. And then slips in the yorker. The oldest two-card trick. Raina was on the hop and he couldn't get his bat in line of the delivery. Dead duck.. 217/5

Thilina Kandamby703725.28142000
28.1 to KD Karthik, Gentle full toss. Big swing of the bat. Out! Oh he has messed up there! It was a lollypop thrown around the leg stump line and Karthik went for the slog sweep and top edged it to deep square-leg. Good innings but it's over now.. 146/3
32.2 to MS Dhoni, Kandamby is on a roll. Not a great ball again but he gets another wicket! It was short, it was wide and Dhoni reaches out to cut it towards backward point where Kulasekara dives forward to take a good catch.. 167/4

Praveen Kumar912913.22392020
0.5 to TM Dilshan, Dilshan combusts! What a soft hit. It was the short delivery well outside off and Dilshan tried to fetch it with a pull. Limp shot. The ball lobbed gently to mid-on. Huge wicket this. Indians roar.. 5/1
Zaheer Khan823624.50336020
7.6 to WU Tharanga, Oh boy! what has he done! He shoulders arms to a delivery that cuts back in from outside off to take out the off stump! As they say in gully cricket, a very bad "well left" Not! He has been at the other end and has been watching Zaheer cut the ball in a great deal while bowling to Sanga but he decides to shoulder arms. This one pitched just outside off and tilted in. Clatter!. 31/2
35.3 to MF Maharoof, Maharoof's poor day continues. He pokes at a short-of-length delivery leaving him and edges it through to Dhoni. 132/7
Ashish Nehra904044.44354130
13.3 to DPMD Jayawardene, It kicks up outside off stump from back of length and Mahela stabs at it, away from the body, and gets the edge. Virat Kohli had fallen in a similar fashion earlier today. Sri Lanka three down and wobbling. 50/3
13.5 to AD Mathews, Another one down. Injudicious shot from Angelo. It was a back-of-length delivery well outside off and Angelo chased it well away from the body. Edge and gone!. 50/4
15.4 to KC Sangakkara, Ashish Nehra is da maan for India tonight. Nehra banged it in short just outside off and Sanga went for the pull shot. Mistake. Fatal Mistake. He hits it limply to mid-on were Zaheer takes the dolly. The Sri Lankan captain departs. The ball has been jagging around under the lights and the top order has been found wanting.. 51/5
43.2 to SL Malinga, No 4 for Nehra. Malinga cleared the front foot and went for the slog. He ended up slicing it just over covers and Jadeja jogged back to collect it. India just a wicket away from lifting the cup. 177/9
Harbhajan Singh903003.33321010
Virat Kohli301605.3371001
Ravindra Jadeja6.402924.35222001
40.3 to KMDN Kulasekara, Stumped! Kula rushed down the track, couldn't reach the pitch of the ball, tried to dab it to the on side but was beaten by the turn. 168/8
44.4 to M Muralidaran, India win the Asia Cup. Jadeja struck the final blow - it spun away from Murali got a thin nick through to Dhoni. Jadeja uproots the stumps, Dhoni pumps his fist and Murali turns and walks.. 187/10
