Nuwan Kulasekara803804.75326000
Thilan Thushara1007127.10255150
46.4 to YK Pathan, He is gone! He backed away, Thushara fired it almost yorker length outside off and Yusuf reached out and ended up slicing it straight to backward point. Yusuf stays there as he thinks he hit straight to the ground. Replays show that the ball went straight up in the air after making contact with the bat .. the bat hit the ground .... Gone! The third umpire conveys his decision to Doctrove who says Yusuf you got to go. 277/4
48.3 to SK Raina, Raina holes out to long-off. He went for the big hit and gained more elevation than distance. It went really high and Kula did well to stay under it and take it. 302/5
Lasith Malinga1008118.10207051
36.3 to MS Dhoni, is late into the pull shot, this short delivery climbs into him and cramps him fast, the top edge lobs to midwicket - good hand played by Dhoni. 205/2
Ajantha Mendis1007017.00224230
45.6 to SR Tendulkar, goes for another reverse sweep, misses and this time it's the off break that traps him right in front. What an innings though. Absolute masterclass on risk-free cricket.. 276/3
Sanath Jayasuriya904314.77170000
17.2 to R Dravid, Jayasuriya strikes. He slowed up the pace on this one, floated it outside off, making Dravid stretch across to reach for it. Dravid ended up lunging and chips it straight to short extra cover. Clever little change of pace from Jayasuriya. Dravid is angry with himself; bangs his bat against his pad as he walks away .... 95/1

Ashish Nehra704306.14237000
Ishant Sharma705117.28186110
14.3 to T Thushara, Ishant, who leaked runs with the newer ball, tastes his first success. It landed back of length on the middle and leg and straightened to go past the attempted across-the-line slog and crash into the middle stump. Four down and wobbling.. 108/4
RP Singh503416.80135001
27.3 to KC Sangakkara, OMG! What a bizzare way to get out. Oh dear. It''s a low full toss, below waist-high, Sangakkara has a jab at it and here is where the trouble starts. The bat slips out of his sweaty gloved hands and flips in the air back over his shoulder and falls on the stumps. What a way to go. Sanga looks stunned. Shocked. He was looking to really fight it out there but the captain has to go. Raina tackles RP in celebration and both go down to the ground laughing. For what it's worth, the ball rolled towards mid-on after impact with the bat.. 182/6
Harbhajan Singh9.405655.79265030
7.5 to TM Dilshan, Harbhajan roars and he is mobbed by his team-mates. With a scrambled seam, he landed it on a length on the middle and off and it skidded on to the middle. Dilshan misread the length, went back to cut and in the end, tried to stab it away to the off side but misses. Timber! What a fun start he has given to the chase, though. A huge wicket for India. Drama continues in Lanka. Dhoni was ecstatic there. He roared and roared.. 64/1
9.4 to DPMD Jayawardene, Harbhajan has struck again! What a gem of a spell this is turning out to be. Again scrambled seam, applies some over spin on the doosra on the off stump line, Mahela is lured into a waft to the on side and gets a leading edge back down the pitch. Harbhajan screams in delight; his team-mates too clear their throats.. 76/2
44.3 to SHT Kandamby, Harbhajan has done it again. He was the man who took the first two wickets and he is the man who turns the game again for India now. Kandamby moved well outside leg stump and went for the cut but missed it completely. Clatter! What a wonderful innings under pressure but he has given it away in the end. 66 valuable runs but he is gone now. Advantage India.. 264/8
44.4 to SL Malinga, Double jeopardy! Done in by the doosra. Just like the Mahela dismissal. Malinga tried to turn it to the leg side for a single but all he does get is a leading edge ... a dolly back to Harbhajan.. 264/9
46.4 to BAW Mendis, Fittingly, Harbhajan hammers in the final nail. A tossed up doosra, from round the stumps, lures Mendis out of the crease, turns past the swing of the bat and Dhoni does the rest. Harbhajan bags a five-for. What a game he has had. He took out Dilshan and Mahela at the top, returned at the pressure time to deliver the knock-out punch. The Indians get into a celebratory huddle.. 273/10
Yusuf Pathan403619.0094030
10.6 to ST Jayasuriya, The big man is gone. The off spinners are doing it for India. In style. Jayasuriya tries to swing the flighted delivery from outside off to the leg side but is beaten in flight and top-edges it to mid-on. It triggers off the Indian celebration routine: Scream in joy. 85/3
Yuvraj Singh602414.00171000
17.3 to AD Mathews, Yuvraj, the man with the golden arm, strikes. It was flighted outside off stump, on a length, stops a touch on Angelo who chips it on the up and straight to Raina at extra cover. Sangakkara stands alone. 131/5
Suresh Raina802613.25250000
42.3 to CK Kapugedera, Huge strike by Raina. It was the quicker one, skidding outside off, Kapugedera tried to dab it late behind the wicket but edged it. It popped out of Dhoni's gloves but he caught it on the rebound. Big wicket. A fine innings from Kapu comes to an end. 68 from 45 balls needed now. This fascinating game continues to see-saw. 252/7
