BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Vinay Kumar1014634.60393110
0.2 to WU Tharanga, beauty from Vinay, Tharanga's troubles in Australia continue, a short of length ball that moves away a touch, Tharanga doesn't bother much about his footwork as he fishes at the ball, nicks it and it's easy for Dhoni, who has to move forward a touch to collect that. 0/1
36.2 to DPMD Jayawardene, the bowling change works! Vinay is rewarded for bowling it straight, the ball doesn't bounce as much as Jayawardene expected, hits him fairly low on the pad in front of the stumps as he tries to tuck it away. 173/4
49.3 to KMDN Kulasekara, the frustration gets to Kulasekara as he tries to hit out, another slower ball, shorter in length, he top edges the pull down to Kohli at point. 232/8
Irfan Pathan903814.22354020
7.1 to TM Dilshan, Irfan has a wicket, with his trademark incutter, Dilshan throws his bat at that one outside off, bottom edges it through to the keeper, Dhoni doesn't bother with appealing, just throws the ball up in the air to celebrate the wicket. 28/2
Umesh Yadav905105.66235000
Ravichandran Ashwin1013023.00350000
19.4 to KC Sangakkara, leading edge! Sangakkara gives Ashwin the charge, tries to launch him over mid-on but spoons a big leading edge down to point, credit to Ashwin for tossing it up. 79/3
39.4 to NLTC Perera, the frustration gets to Perera! He tries to slam it over the infield by staying at the crease, he plays all over it and skies it down to Virat who takes it at deepish mid-off. 184/6

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Lasith Malinga1015325.30283010
27.4 to SK Raina, very well taken by Sangakkara! Malinga fired it down the leg side and Raina tried to run it down to fine leg, he clipped it off the face of the bat and Sangakkara anticipated well and moved quickly to his right. 118/4
47.4 to R Ashwin, well that drop didn't cost anything! Yet another slower ball and Ashwin makes room to play the spooned extra cover drive, ends up chipping it straight to extra cover, clever change of pace again does the trick. 212/7
Nuwan Kulasekara1003913.90363010
5.6 to SR Tendulkar, Kulasekara gets him! The ball angles it from around the off stump, Kulasekara held the length back slightly and Tendulkar was caught on the drive, big outside edge down to Sangakkara. 24/1
Angelo Mathews503507.00153111
Thisara Perera904525.00253110
14.1 to V Kohli, Kohli's trapped playing across the line, the ball lands on the off stump and nips back in slightly, Kohli tries to whip it away but the ball hits him a bit low on the pads, quite straightforward. 61/2
43.3 to RA Jadeja, the captain sets a fine example again! Perera pitches it up outside the off stump, he shapes to drive through the covers but ends up driving uppishly and Jayawardene dives to his right and takes it inches off the ground. 184/6
