Praveen Kumar1023433.40446000
6.6 to LPC Silva, Praveen joins in the party hosted by Zaheer. It landed back of length around the middle stump line, Silva is sucked forward, bat way in front of the body and the ball curves away with bounce to take the shoulder of the bat and popping to point. 11 for 4 and Sri Lanka are reeling here.. 11/4
33.1 to T Thushara, PK gets the vital breakthrough with a lovely slower ball. It was full and around the off stump, Thushara, who hit the first ball of Praveen Kumar in the previous over for a boundary, again went for the swing across the line but holed out to Kohli at deep midwicket.. 118/7
33.4 to KMDN Kulasekara, PK strikes again. Another slower ball. Kulasekara is early into the on drive, couldn't keep it down and Badrinath fell forward from his short midwicket position to take the catch. 118/8
Zaheer Khan9.532142.13462000
1.6 to KC Sangakkara, Oh he has cleaned him up. The off stump has been pegged back. Sangakkara looks stunned. It landed around a length, outside off stump and seamed back in. Sangakkara had a lazy waft, without moving towards the line and the bat came down outside the line. He even lost the bottom-hand grip of the bat handle and that took the bat further away from the ball.. 4/1
5.4 to DPMD Jayawardene, Zaheer strikes with his full length and probing line around the off stump. Mahela gets forward, hangs his bat out in an effort to defend but the ball kept angling away, kissed the outside edge and flew towards the first slip. Dhoni had a half-hearted attempt at the catch before collapsing his knees and not getting in the way. The ball went to Yuvraj who juggled a bit but held on. 10 for 2.. 10/2
5.6 to CK Kapugedera, Zaheer is on a roll. The angling delivery works again. It landed on a length around off stump and shaped away a touch. Chamara had a poke. Fatal. Thin nick through to Dhoni. The slip fielders jump in joy, Dhoni flings the ball high in the air and Zaheer rushes to him. 10 for 3 and the Sri Lanka are wobbling here.. 10/3
13.5 to ST Jayasuriya, It cut in from outside the off stump, Jayasuriya was caught on the shuffle, trying to defend and was hit in front of the stumps but high around the front-pad flap. It looked like going over. Will confirm after replays. Zaheer has struck the most vital blow of the day. The virtual eye suggests it would have hit the top of the middle stump. Right at the top. So that's that. Jayasuriya is back in the hutch.. 33/5
Munaf Patel612404.00274000
Irfan Pathan502114.20192030
17.2 to TM Dilshan, What a first ODI catch to take! Badrinath is the man. Dilshan pulled the short-of-length delivery in the air in front and right of long leg. Badri charged in and dived to hold on to it. Ala Dean Jones. Dilshan promises to deceive. Sri Lanka are tottering here. Unbelievable.. 44/6
Harbhajan Singh5.402624.58222040
34.1 to BAW Mendis, Flighted doosra on the middle, Mendis, India's nemisis, didn't pick it up, tried to work it across the line and gets a leading edge back to Harbhajan.. 122/9
38.3 to CRD Fernando, Sri Lanka fold up for 142. Fernando skipped down the track and holed out to deep midwicket.. 142/10

Nuwan Kulasekara922622.88424000
2.4 to IK Pathan, Kulasekara takes out his man. He had Irfan in trouble on a few occasions and gets the reward now. It left the lefty Irfan Pathan - the in cutter to the right hand batsman - and got the edge on its way. Sangakkara didn't move his left leg but just dived to take the catch.. 8/1
4.2 to SK Raina, Caught plumb in front. Raina takes a tiny hesitant prod forward, tries to get his bat around the pad and is struck right in front. It landed on the middle and leg, cut in to hit the pad. Loose technique on offer by all the three Indians so far.. 16/2
Thilan Thushara713224.57305020
19.4 to V Kohli, Kohli throws his wicket away with a loose drive to extra cover fielder. Full in length and the urge to drive on the up swallows him. He started off in an slightly iffy manner against the new ball but settled down to play well but he is gone now. he had driven loosely in the second ball of this over but it had not gone in the air but this time a similar ball has fetched his wicket. 75/4
19.6 to RG Sharma, Double strike from Tushara and I was wondering whether he had come on just to facilitate the change of ends for the spinners! It landed on the leg stump line, moved in with the left-armer's angle, Rohit was late on the defensive prod - a waft across the line - and was struck in front of the middle and leg above the knee roll. Like Jayasuriya's dismissal. Virtual eye suggests it would hit the top of the leg and middle.. 75/5
Ajantha Mendis1012222.20452000
14.5 to Yuvraj Singh, Yuvraj continues to be a sitting duck against Mendis. Done in by that carrom ball again. It landed on a length around middle and off, Yuvraj groped forward and across, front leg landing well across the line and he couldn't get his bat around the front pad in time and the ball cut in to trap him right in front. Dead duck.. 52/3
37.2 to Harbhajan Singh, Mendis strikes with the carrom ball. It drifted in landed on the middle and off, Harbhajan tried to work it to the on side (he will think later why did I do that?) and it cut away to hit the pad in front of off stump.. 139/7
Dilhara Fernando502515.00182002
35.5 to MS Dhoni, Cleaned him up with a fuller length delivery that shaped in. It came in from the full length, from the off stump line, Dhoni went for the drive and edges it to his stumps. Good innings from the captain.. 135/6
