Nuwan Kulasekara713224.57293120
9.4 to G Gambhir, lbw!! Gambhir looked out of sorts today! He tried to play across the line of a delivery that angled across him and missed, the ball hit him in front of the middle stump, there was no doubt it was going to hit the stumps but it had pitched outside leg stump so Gambhir was unlucky there, the umpire - Tyron, I think it was - raised the finger in a flash. 40/2
13.6 to Yuvraj Singh, caught at slip! Yuvraj pushes forward at a delivery which angles across him from a good length, he plays the ball with hard hands and the outside edge flies to Jayawardene who takes it easily at first slip, fantastic bowling from Kulasekara, he's been spot on today and troubled every batsman. 62/3
Thilan Thushara913624.00342050
45.5 to RG Sharma, caught! Sharma comes on to the front foot and tries to loft over the leg side, Thushara bowls a slower one and Sharma is early on the shot, he gets a top edge that goes high in the air towards cover where Kapugedera settles under the catch and judges it well. 212/6
49.6 to Z Khan, caught! low full toss and Zaheer tries to loft it down the ground, he slices it high in the air and straight to Murali at extra cover. 237/9
Ajantha Mendis1005635.60295111
22.5 to S Badrinath, caught!! Mendis strikes! Badrinath tries to take Mendis on, he charges and tries to hit over the off side, he gets too far away from the ball and throws his bat at it, he connects with the bottom and hits it flat and straight to Vaas at mid-off. 91/4
48.2 to Harbhajan Singh, caught! Harbhajan clears his front foot out of the way and slogs across the line, he didn't get to the pitch of the ball and top-edged it miles it the air, that ball went extremely high but didn't go far at all, Sangakkara ran a few paces to his left and took a well-judged catch. 229/7
48.3 to MS Dhoni, Mendis' day has rapidly got better! He bowls a full and straight ball, Dhoni charges down the track and tries to hit him over the off side, he doesn't get any elevation and hits the ball flat and low towards Jayawardene who tumbles forward while taking the catch at cover. 229/8

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Praveen Kumar1006226.20347220
4.1 to ST Jayasuriya, caught! The short of a length ball pitches around off stump and seams away from the left-hander, the width is there for the cut and Jayasuriya attempts to play it past point off the back foot, the ball seams away from him and takes the edge through to Dhoni, Kohli will be relieved, Praveen is pumped. 18/1
8.4 to CK Kapugedera, lbw! Praveen pitches the ball just outside off and angles the ball into the right-hander, Kapugedera moves across his stumps and tries to work the ball off his pads, he misses and gets hit on the top of the front pad, he sets off for the leg bye but is cut short by umpire Tyron who raises his finger in a flash, that looks like it's a bit high, on the other hand replays show it hitting the top of leg stump. 37/3
Zaheer Khan1032332.30473010
5.2 to KC Sangakkara, lbw! Zaheer pitches the ball on a good length outside off stump and, instead of taking it away from the left-hander, he nips it back into Sangakkara who had moved across his stumps to play the ball, the ball hits the pad just above the knee role in line with off stump, is height a problem? Umpire Doctrove doesn't think so, the ball was similar to the one that bowled him at Dambulla, it hit him on the back foot, it was rather high though even though Sangakkara was on the back foot. 26/2
9.4 to LPC Silva, another lbw! Fantastic bowling from Zaheer! He pitches on a good length in line with the stumps and gets the ball to straighten into the right-hander, Silva plays from his crease and gets hit just above the knee roll, umpire Doctrove doesn't have a problem with the height and raises the finger, replays indicate the ball would have hit the top of middle. 40/4
43.5 to T Thushara, bowled him! Zaheer's done it for India! Thushara comes forward to try and drive the ball, Zaheer fires the ball into the block hole and zeroes in on the base of off and middle stump, Thushara doesn't connect and hears the sound of ball hitting stumps. 175/8
Munaf Patel1014234.20334000
16.3 to TM Dilshan, caught! Splendid line and length, Munaf pitches short of a length around off stump and seams the ball away from the right-hander off the pitch, Dilshan stands on the back foot and drives inside the line of the ball, it hits the outside edge and Dhoni takes an easy catch. 58/5
45.4 to DPMD Jayawardene, caught! Jayawardene tries to play the paddle shot over short fine leg once again, this time he doesn't connect properly and the ball lobs over the head of Praveen at short fine leg, he runs back and holds a well-judged catch, Jayawardene goes after a terrific innings. 192/9
48.6 to M Muralidaran, that's the end of the game! Munaf bowls it full and straight, Murali clears his front foot out of the way and swings across the line, he misses and Munaf hits middle stump. 204/10
Harbhajan Singh1002912.90330000
17.2 to WPUJC Vaas, bowled him!! Harbhajan breaches Vaas' defences in his first over, Harbhajan pitches a fast ball in line with the stumps and skids it straight through, Vaas may have been playing for the offspin for he plays around the line of the ball, it goes between his bat and pad and crashes into the stumps. 59/6
Yuvraj Singh803714.62252010
26.5 to KMDN Kulasekara, lbw! Yuvraj fires in the arm ball which angles into the right-hander after pitching outside off, Kulasekara pushes forward and gets hit on the front pad, no doubt that it would have hit the stumps but was the impact on the pad outside the line of off stump? It was a close call.. 94/7
