Chaminda Vaas1008418.402512013
0.5 to S Ramesh, brilliant ball, pitching on the off stump and then straighening down the line, Ramesh is defending off the middle stump, but the ball misses the outside edge and clips the top off the off stump. 6/1

47.4 to RR Singh, clap clap clap, marvellous stuff from Robin, pull shot, top edge, down the throat of the mid wicket, never mind, I'm sure he can blame the demons in the pitch. 349/5
49.5 to SC Ganguly, going for the 6, big slog down the ground, but he hasn't got onto it properly, Chandana it looks like has taken a safe catch in front of the sightscreen, what a great innings, standing ovation from the crowd. 372/6

Robin Singh9.303153.26371024
