Bhuvneshwar Kumar6.503515.12245000
44.5 to DAS Gunaratne, edged and gone! SL are bowled out. Good length outside off, Gunaratne tries to dab this down to third man but the ball takes the outside edge and carries low to Dhoni's right. A mighty collapse. Another one.. 215/10
Jasprit Bumrah813914.87274000
3.4 to MD Gunathilaka, and gone! Always going to happen with the way he was playing. Comes down, looks to go over mid-off, but his timing is so bad, the ball skews off the inside half and lobs to mid-on. Being positive is fine, but looking to hit every ball over (not through) the field is not a great strategy.. 15/1
Hardik Pandya1014924.90419010
38.4 to SS Pathirana, another wicket! What kind of a shot was that with four wickets left? Full around off, Pathirana clears his front leg and shovels the ball to mid-on, where Chahal runs back and to his left, keeps his eyes on the ball and takes a clean catch. Gunathilaka and now Pathirana, not very sensible.. 208/7
40.1 to RAS Lakmal, nine down now. 132 kph, the ball seaming back in, full and straight, beats Lakmal on the inside edge, hits him plumb in front of off. Absolutely dead, at least he isn't reviewing.. 211/9
Kuldeep Yadav1004234.20313020
27.1 to WU Tharanga, and he produces a stumping appeal. Kuldeep tosses it up on and around off stump. The ball breaks away from Tharanga's bat as he is lured into driving away from the body. And this is going to be so tight. The leggie has done its job superbly, dragging Tharanga forward just enough that his back foot might just be on the line as Dhoni breaks the stumps. And the third umpire rules it out. What a ball! What a strike! And what an innings! Tharanga has been floating on clouds today and it needed a jaffa to make him trip up.. 160/3
27.5 to N Dickwella, he's guided it straight to slip! Kuldeep is on song, but he really has been gifted this one. It's the quicker delivery, perhaps as a response to the boundaries, and it's just a touch short as well. Dickwella goes for that little late cut, but this time he's surprised by a little bit more turn than he bargained for. Searches for the ball and much to his dismay, finds it. 168/4
39.5 to A Dananjaya, bowled 'im, and Sri Lanka are now tottering. Tries the paddle sweep again but misses it. Full on off, too full, he misses that paddle and the ball hits off stump. Not the worst shot, but undone by the length.. 210/8
Yuzvendra Chahal1034634.60393310
22.3 to S Samarawickrama, taken at deep cover, the typical Chahal strike. He is ever so good against attacking batsmen, mostly because he hides the ball. It seems just within their reach so that they think they can hit them out of the ground. But then he always bowls them so slow, and it is turning away as well, so if they do manage to catch up with it, they invariably mistime the ball. Sadeera falls into the trap playing a front-foot flay.. 136/2
33.5 to AD Mathews, oh yes. That's a ripper. Mathews could not do much about that. Not many batsmen could. It's much shorter, but don't mistake a flatter trajectory for a bad delivery from a legspinner. Mathews doesn't, he stays earnest, trying to defend the ball but the ball generates plenty of turn despite that trajectory and length, beats the bat and hits middle and off stump after pitching on leg or just outside. 189/5
35.1 to NLTC Perera, and another one. Thisara has been caught in front and he reviews! He makes two errors in that one ball. Firstly, he goes back and looks for a cut to a legspinner: the stock ball is always going to turn in, making the cut a very risky stroke. Secondly, he allowed himself to be beaten by not improvising the stroke because the length was short enough for him to stay back and get some bat on it. There is no bat on that. An umpire's call will have him: red, red and orange. SL keep their review but lose their captain. 197/6

Akila Dananjaya7.105317.39225220
3.4 to RG Sharma, through the gate! Rippaaaahh! The Dananjaya googly strikes again. Rohit was launching the offbreaks into orbit but he does not read the ball from the back of the hand. Steps forward, tentatively, to defend, thinking it is a legbreak. But it bites into the pitch, on a good length area outside off, and surges through to hit middle.. 14/1

22.4 to SS Iyer, and Iyer throws away his opportunity to make a hundred. 129 kph, short down leg, Iyer clears his front leg and shovels a swat, but can't get anywhere near the timing he wants, the ball skews off the top half of the bat and lobs to mid-on. India's normal No. 3 would not have thrown it away like that, that's where temperament makes a difference in international cricket, not just style or "talent". 149/2
