Chaminda Vaas712213.14303010
8.2 to Harbhajan Singh, good length ball, slogs at it, scoops the ball up to extra covers, Jaysuriya takes the catch. The Indian think tank has to start thinking now. Nothing seems to work today.. 30/3

5.5 to Yuvraj Singh, short of a length, outside the leg stump, flicks the ball in the air, guess what! there he is, Muthiah Muralitharan at short fine leg, takes a few steps to his right, takes the catch. Yuvraj hangs is head down and starts the long slow walk back. 26/1

Dilhara Fernando702914.14282004
17.3 to VVS Laxman, good length ball, rising sharply, good pace too, Laxman does it again, plays at it standing put, thin edge and through to Kalu, Fernanado celebrates and then turns around to look at the umpire. Peter manuels still has a smile as he rises the. 71/4
Muthiah Muralidaran1013523.50403000
42.3 to RS Sodhi, this is why he is the king of off spin, pitched outside the off stump, Sodhi shapes to play at it, always looking agressive, exaggerated turn on this. Spins sharply in and disturbs the castle. 178/6
46.5 to V Sehwag, The magician does it again, fools Sehwag to play a false shot, the pressure of the two dot balls tells, hits in the air to the happiest fielder at long off, Perera takes the catch! Murali strikes another body blow. 200/7
