Fall of wickets: 1-12 (Upul Tharanga, 2.4 ov), 2-74 (Kumar Sangakkara, 16.4 ov), 3-100 (Tillakaratne Dilshan, 24.3 ov), 4-152 (Mahela Jayawardene, 35.5 ov), 5-172 (Thisara Perera, 39.4 ov), 6-189 (Dinesh Chandimal, 43.2 ov), 7-204 (Lahiru Thirimanne, 45.5 ov), 8-228 (Nuwan Kulasekara, 49.2 ov)
2.4 to WU Tharanga, this was coming, Zaheer has toyed with Tharanga, who was getting nowhere against all that movement, he tried advancing down the track to take on Zaheer, but played a half-hearted weak push at one that left him to loop to Sachin at first slip. 12/1
16.4 to KC Sangakkara, superb take from Dhoni, Zaheer has broken the partnership, but he also has Dhoni to thank for pulling off a screamer, Zaheer got Sanga to push at one straightening and bouncing from just short of a length, the edge flew to where first slip would have been, Dhoni went leaping horizontally after it with outstretched arms and held on. 74/2
49.2 to KMDN Kulasekara, Kula backs away and has a slog, the edge flies vertically behind point, Rohit sets himself under it, and scrambles to take it safely as it eventually comes down. 228/8
24.3 to TM Dilshan, Virat gets the chance to make up for that wide throw and does superbly to hold on to a very low catch at point, he pouches it and screams, Dilshan was looking to cut almost everything from Jadeja and could not keep this very wide one down. 100/3
35.5 to DPMD Jayawardene, gone! Mahela departs, sweeps from off straight to deep square leg, well judged low take from Rohit on the boundary, Mahela had moved across and fetched it from around off stump, was a bit off balance as he played the shot. 152/4
39.4 to NLTC Perera, Ashwin gets another one, Perera advanced out to have a heave, was beaten as the tossed up ball spun away, he got the foot back on the crease, but could not get it behind the line as Dhoni removed the bails. 172/5
43.2 to LD Chandimal, Dhoni has done well to complete the stumping, Chandimal walked out, reached the tossed up carrom ball on the full, but missed, and it turned away sharply from him after pitching outside leg, and thudded into Dhoni's gloves hard just outside off, Dhoni was startled for a bit, but with Chandimal way down the track, he got the bails off eventually. 189/6

Fall of wickets: 1-14 (Virender Sehwag, 2.3 ov), 2-89 (Sachin Tendulkar, 18.5 ov), 3-122 (Rohit Sharma, 25.5 ov), 4-157 (Suresh Raina, 32.1 ov), 5-167 (MS Dhoni, 33.4 ov), 6-181 (Virat Kohli, 35.6 ov)
2.3 to V Sehwag, oh well, Sehwag gives it away, short and wide from Malinga, Sehwag hops and forces it over the in-field, but third man is around and he runs to his right to gleefully hold on. 14/1
33.4 to MS Dhoni, Dhoni done in by the short ball now, he was not in a good position to play the pull, but still went for it, the ball looped over Malinga at wide mid on, and he took a good catch running back. 167/5
18.5 to SR Tendulkar, oh dear, Sachin has played on, he had earlier tried to steer Angelo from the middle and leg line, tried to back away again to one angled in and run it to third man from very close to off stump, and this time he chopped it on. 89/2
32.1 to SK Raina, well, he has indeed fallen to the short ball ultimately, it was nowhere as sharp as the short balls Malinga aimed at his ribs, it was angled across him, the pull was on, Raina went at it too eagerly, and it ballooned up high to settle into the hands of deep midwicket. 157/4
25.5 to RG Sharma, Super Dilshan grabs the screamer at point, short, wide, Rohit cracks the cut, does not bother to keep it down, it flies to Dilshan's left, he may be former captain but is still a top fielder, he reacts immediately, bends low to his left, pouches the ball safely and tumbles down only to be engulfed by his team-mates as he gets up. 122/3
