14.6 to DPMD Jayawardene, wide outside the off stump, doesn't beat the big flash, takes the edge and into the gloves of dighe, standing up. Poor batting and there he goes back to the hut. 61/3

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
7.1 to AR Khurasiya, full length delivery on middle and off, Khurasiya shuffles across the line to play it on the leg side, hit on the pads, Perera and the whole of Sri Lanka goes up in appeal, that is out indeed, umpire Peter Manuel has a big grin on his. 29/2
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
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

37.3 to SC Ganguly, on middle and leg, Ganguly slightly frustrated, goes for the sweep, gets a top edge, goes straight down the troat of Jayasuriya, it is all cheers in Colombo. 151/5
