3.2 to MDK Perera, straight through him there, Ishant pitches on off on a great length, Perera came out to drive forward but the ball beats the outside edge and held its line to clip the off stump. 15/1
23.3 to TM Dilshan, a huge shout for one which was veering on towards middle and leg, Dilshan was across but not far forward, and there wasn't much wrong at all there. 93/6
25.4 to WPUJC Vaas, outside off, the batsman pulls up and over to midwicket, where it's taken easily, Vaas not getting over the ball at all. 93/7
38.4 to SL Malinga, outside off and yet again Sri Lankan shot selection lets them down, although credit to the bowler at the same time, beating him for pace and Malinga tried to pull it but the ball went high and up over to Uthappa who set himself to take the catch at mid-off. 139/8
Irfan Pathan1022312.30462000
19.3 to ST Jayasuriya, banged in outside off, Jayasuriya goes for a huge hook and doesn't get over it, instead the ball flies up high and Dhoni shuffles round a few paces, with plenty of time to set himself for the catch. 81/5
Praveen Kumar1023143.10421020
14.1 to KC Sangakkara, got him! Sangakkara charges and then pokes at a short one down off, opening the face and prodding straight into Dhoni's hands. 72/2
16.5 to DPMD Jayawardene, outside off, and that's a screamer of a catch, Jayawardene laces hard off the back foot to point where it's taken very quickly and very low by Rohit Sharma. 77/3
18.3 to LPC Silva, quality delivery from Kumar, and another good catch from Dhoni - the ball coming outside off, straightening on the rise and Silva pops through to the keeper off the back foot. 81/4
46.5 to M Muralidaran, backs away and goes across the line aiming towards midwicket and missed it completely, the ball veering down leg, catching the right thigh and moving a touch back to just clip leg stick. 179/9
Harbhajan Singh4.101714.08141000
47.1 to CK Kapugedera, a soft dismissal to end a fine innings, Kapugedera coming out and poppin up a soft return pull to Harbhajan who had pinged the ball down off. 179/10
