Chaminda Vaas914014.44345000
12.1 to Yuvraj Singh, Vaasy gets his wicket no 400. He is lifted in the air by Kapugedera even as the rest of the team converge. The off cutter on the slow wicket has consumed Yuvraj. He is early into his whip across the line and the ball stopped on him, took the edge and went straight to short midwicket. Vaas saw the ball was taken, raised his arms, lifted his head up to the skies and shut his eyes. Blink. And his team-mates were there to congratulate him.. 51/2
Nuwan Kulasekara803814.75314000
9.5 to G Gambhir, And he is gone now. He carved the short-of-length delivery angled well across him straight to backward point.. 44/1
Thilan Thushara8.404755.42284050
17.3 to V Kohli, But he is gone now! Inside edge and on to the stumps, Kohli is very disappointed. It bounced from short of length, more pace than the other two bowlers so far, and Kohli tried to push it to cover point with an angled bat, well away from the body, but the ball collided with the inside edge and crashed on to the off stump. Enter Dhoni.. 81/3
40.6 to SK Raina, Holes out to long-off this time, though. He threatened to move outside leg, got in line and went down on his knee to time the lofted shot well but straight to the man. 76 very good runs from Suresh Raina. He kicked the ground as he walked off. 224/4
42.4 to MS Dhoni, Jayasuriya takes a very good catch at covers to end the captain's knock. It was full and well outside off, Dhoni crouched on a bent knee, reached out to drive and Jayasuriya timed his lunge to his left well and pouched it safely. Two new batsmen at the crease. 232/5
49.1 to P Kumar, The struggling Praveen Kumar is cleaned up finally. Full, straight, on the off stump, Praveen couldn't get his bat down in time and the off stump has been pegged back. 257/9
49.4 to Z Khan, Thushara gets a five-for. Zaheer backed away to the leg side and drove straight to covers.. 258/10
Ajantha Mendis1014314.30292000
48.5 to RG Sharma, Mendis tricks him with change of pace and length. Rohit went for the slog-sweep but it was slower and short in length and Rohit edged it high to midwicket.. 256/8
Muthiah Muralidaran1005615.60232100
45.3 to S Badrinath, flighted off break outside off stump, Badrinath leaned across, tried to wrist it to the on side for a single but was a touch early into his shot and ended up sending a dolly to short midwicket.. 243/6

Praveen Kumar402506.25155010
Zaheer Khan9.332712.84422020
46.3 to T Thushara, And India have won the series. First time they have beaten Sri Lanka in a bilateral series of ODIs in Sri Lanka. Thushara swung the full delivery straight to Raina at deep midwicket. The players get into a huddle of joy. Beyond the boundary, the chairman of selectors Vengsarkar shakes hands with Gary Kirsten.. 212/10
Munaf Patel904825.33324200
6.3 to SM Warnapura, He has been given out lbw. It landed on short of length around middle and off, cut in a touch to hit him high on the front thigh. It looked like it was going over the stumps. Virtual eye suggests the ball would have gone over the middle stump. 28/1
10.6 to KC Sangakkara, Another failure for Sangakkara. He tried to force a length delivery outside off through covers but edged it to his leg stump. Kohli had fallen similarly earlier in the day. Munaf has been rewarded for some probing bowling. Sanga then suggests he should have let that one go through to the keeper.. 38/2
Harbhajan Singh1004034.00351040
17.3 to ST Jayasuriya, Sharp catch by Raina at first slip and silence envelops the arena. Well-flighted off break around middle, full, Jayasuriya, who must have seen the sharp turn in the previous ball, some how decided to go across the line, trying to tap a single, gets the leading edge and Raina lunges to his left to take a sharp one-handed catch. Super innings comes to an end. He took his time, settled down before cutting loose. Just when Dhoni would have got worried, he falls, though.. 74/3
29.4 to TM Dilshan, Another one goes. The quicker one, slid in to middle and leg, he shuffled and was rapped on the flap of the pad. umpire took his time ... long thought ... bhajji and all really turned on the heat and given out finally.. 131/5
41.1 to KMDN Kulasekara, stumped by the doosra. The batsman was well down the track, had no clue as the ball left him and was stranded. India edge towards the series win. 190/8
Yuvraj Singh1005325.30282200
32.2 to CK Kapugedera, Given out lbw; there was a thick inside nick. It skidded in with the arm, Kapugedera shaped to defend and got a thick inside edge on to the pad in front of middle.. 140/6
36.3 to WPUJC Vaas, trapped in front. No doubt about this one! It landed around off stump, full, turned in, Vaas tried to play across the line, missed and was struck in front.. 157/7
