Fall of wickets: 1-95 (Mahela Jayawardene, 18.4 ov), 2-104 (Tillakaratne Dilshan, 21.5 ov), 3-124 (Kumar Sangakkara, 27.1 ov), 4-195 (Dinesh Chandimal, 38.6 ov), 5-244 (Lahiru Thirimanne, 45.6 ov), 6-265 (Thisara Perera, 48.1 ov)
18.4 to DPMD Jayawardene, there's the breakthrough, Sehwag flies to his left at midwicket to pull off a stunner, roll on more "slow fielder" talk, Mahela looks to club this outside off short of length delivery over the leg side, doesn't get hold of it too well, Sehwag dives to latch on to that and brings Sri Lanka's threatening opening stand to an end. 95/1
38.6 to LD Chandimal, Irfan's yorker does the job, full and heading for leg stump, beats Chandimal and it crashes into the base of keg stump, ending an important stand, Sri Lanka fans will be thrilled seeing how well two of their youngster performed after the experienced trio at the top were dismissed. 195/4
27.1 to KC Sangakkara, and he strikes first ball, not the greatest of deliveries, a shortish ball around off stump, Sangakkara stylishly pulls that towards deep backward square leg, that reached Tendulkar in a hurry, he didn't have to move at all as Sangakkara does a great job of picking him out, five yards either way and that was a certain boundary given how well he hit it. 124/3
21.5 to TM Dilshan, and both well-set batsmen are gone, Ashwin has struck, this one was a length ball well outside off, not much turn for Ashwin but it bounced, more than Dilshan expected at least, a thin top edge through to Parthiv, and Dilshan's stay is over. 104/2
45.6 to HDRL Thirimanne, superb catch to end a fine innings from Thirimanne, a short of length ball, Thirimanne is down the track and carves the ball towards sweeper cover, Raina has to move to his left and tumble forward to take that one, well judged. 244/5
48.1 to NLTC Perera, bowled him, how fast was that? a short of length ball that Perera wanted to slog to his favourite midwicket area, was too quick for him and that crashes into middle stump, 103kph from Raina that was. 265/6

TOTAL45.1 Ov (RR: 5.26, 202 Mins)238
Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Virender Sehwag, 0.2 ov), 2-38 (Sachin Tendulkar, 7.5 ov), 3-54 (Gautam Gambhir, 11.1 ov), 4-146 (Suresh Raina, 30.3 ov), 5-172 (Virat Kohli, 35.3 ov), 6-191 (Ravindra Jadeja, 37.4 ov), 7-215 (Parthiv Patel, 40.4 ov), 8-232 (Ravichandran Ashwin, 42.6 ov), 9-233 (Vinay Kumar, 43.6 ov), 10-238 (Irfan Pathan, 45.1 ov)
0.2 to V Sehwag, oh boy, that is a big blow, Lasith Malinga bowls it short and wide, Sehwag can't resist that one, he reaches out and slices that towards deep third man, Kulasekara races across to his right to pouch that and sets off on a celebratory run, Sri Lanka tighten their grip on this game. 0/1
42.6 to R Ashwin, Ashwin was backing away, a short of length ball over the stumps, Ashwin pokes at it and a thin edge through to the keeper, Bowden raises the finger. 232/8
7.5 to SR Tendulkar, the wait continues, SRT remains on 99, he looked fluent as he has so many times over the past year, a short of length ball well outside off, Tendulkar is late lifting his bat, off the bottom edge and cannons onto the stumps, Kula is ecstatic, Tendulkar less so, and his legions of fans even less so. 38/2
11.1 to G Gambhir, It's that man Kula again! Gambhir walked a few paces down the track to disturb the bowler's rhythm, the bowler bowled it on a good length outside off, Gambhir followed the angle and half-heartedly steered it straight to Perera in the region of gully. 54/3
37.4 to RA Jadeja, Kula can't do a thing wrong today, even gets a wicket with a low wide full toss, a bottom edge from Jadeja as he looks to swipe that to midwicket and the ball crashes into the stumps, Jadeja is distraught as he walks off. 191/6
30.3 to SK Raina, the end of the partnership, Maharoof has struck, Raina is caught on the crease and is done in by the bounce, Raina looks to close the face and ends up popping a catch to short cover, India's already slim chances become slimmer still. 146/4
35.3 to V Kohli, Perera gets the one that matters, Kohli is gone as he attempts the pull, horrible timing, the ball loops towards Kulasekara at mid-on, surely the end of India's chances. 172/5
40.4 to PA Patel, catching practice this, three Sri Lankan fielders get under this, some confusion as they wait to decide who should take it, it is left to Malinga, who clings on to it, it was a shortish ball that Parthiv wanted to slam towards midwicket, top edge and the ball went high and not too far from the pitch, Perera and Dilshan were giving Malinga company as they waited for the ball to come down. 215/7
43.6 to R Vinay Kumar, Perara gets this third wicket, short of length ball outside off, Vinay steers it towards Senanayake at backward point, Vinay is gone for a duck. 233/9
45.1 to IK Pathan, Sri Lanka have won, Perera gets his fourth, not the best of deliveries, a juicy full toss and Irfan whacks it straight back to the bowler, Perera hangs on to it and Sri Lanka get four points, once more Umesh Yadav is not out, three days ago India were top of the table, now they are bottom of the table,. 238/10
