Lasith Malinga1006436.40248010
37.1 to MK Tiwary, Tiwary has to go now, banged in short on middle and he had few answers, tried to fend it into the leg side, took his eyes off that delivery, a good bouncer, got it on the top of the bat and was comfortably caught at short third man. 197/4
37.2 to SK Raina, Raina goes first ball, Malinga is on a hat-trick, short of a good length outside off and he plays at that one, guides it straight to first slip, remember he was dropped at slip by Mahela in the fourth ODI. 197/5
48.5 to MS Dhoni, Wicket no. 200 for Malinga in ODIs, short outside off, Dhoni went for the pull, got a nick and Chandimal took it in front of his face. 290/7
Thisara Perera1005315.30324130
5.1 to AM Rahane, Rahane has been given out lbw, this one nipped back in, did he get an inside edge? Landed on the off stump and moved back in, struck him on the pads, no inside edge, struck him in line and the umpire thought that was out. We just need to see if height was an issue, may not have been. Sri Lanka strike. 29/1
Angelo Mathews502905.80174000
Nuwan Pradeep1006326.30268000
14.3 to V Kohli, Trapped in front, Pradeep angled that in towards middle and leg, it moved in, Kohli likes to shuffle and more often than not he connects well, he missed it this time and was caught in front of middle and leg as he was trying to flick it into the leg side. The umpire checks for a no-ball, Pradeep's foot landed behind the line so Kohli has to go. Replays also show the ball would have clipped leg stump. 77/2
16.6 to RG Sharma, Rohit is bowled! Lovely ball from Pradeep, that late movement proving the batsman's undoing, angled in towards middle and then moved away it seemed after pitching, just when he tried closing the face there to play it towards midwicket, it moved away and knocked back off. 87/3
Sachithra Senanayake1005015.00252010
38.6 to G Gambhir, Sri Lanka are hitting back, Gambhir falls, short outside off and a bit of away spin there, landed on the seam and spat away, good bounce there, appeared to turn it into the leg side but found Malinga stationed at point, came off the leading edge. 213/6

Zaheer Khan915315.88304150
15.1 to CK Kapugedera, Kapugedera knew he was gone! Angled in towards middle, Kapugedera gets across and misses as he tries to defend, struck in line with middle and leg and the umpire, as most others, had doubt. Kapugedera misses another chance. 102/5
Irfan Pathan1006156.10296040
1.3 to TM Dilshan, well taken by Zaheer at third man, bowled on a good length but that was really wide, Dilshan went after that one and sliced it straight towards Zaheer, he had to run forward and took it well, reaching forward and collecting it inches from the ground. 13/1
7.5 to WU Tharanga, ohh Tharanga goes, he was looking really good, Irfan strikes again, pitched up outside off and he drives it loosely and straight to extra cover, easy catch. 61/2
42.3 to NLTC Perera, Perera has holed out but Mendis is still there, pitched up outside off and he went after it, sliced it straight to Virat Kohli at deep point, easily held and Irfan strikes again. 252/7
42.6 to BMAJ Mendis, Mendis has to go now! Short and he goes for the cut, gets a nick straight to Dhoni, Irfan takes four. There to cut and he went for it. 256/8
44.6 to SMSM Senanayake, Five-for for Irfan, gets a wicket off the final ball of his spell, goes round the wicket, landed on a good length and Senanayake swings hard, misses and his off stump is knocked back. 266/9
Ashok Dinda7.405527.17219000
10.1 to LD Chandimal, Chandimal's gone! Short of a good length on middle and leg, he moved across to whip it square, missed, no inside edge, appeared to be going on to hit leg. The umpire thought so and gave it out. The things to look out for are the height and whether it was missing leg.. 74/3
45.4 to SL Malinga, excellent catch from Raina who was running back from long-off, low full toss and Malinga struck it well but not well enough, Raina ran back and took it calmly just in front of the ropes to seal victory. 274/10
