BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Nuwan Kulasekara1006526.50348210
38.3 to G Gambhir, and he comes back with a good delivery, just inches short of being a yorker, outside off, Gambhir looks to get it fine of third man, and edges it through to Sanga and walks. 325/4
42.1 to SK Raina, a bouncer gets Raina again, well directed, into his body, chest high, Raina's weight is forward while pulling, and gets a top edge that goes nowhere but straight up towards the sky. 347/5
Chanaka Welegedara1006326.30319001
35.3 to V Sehwag, Sehwag has missed the 150, moves across the stumps, looks to go over the leg side, but turns the bat face too early, gets the back of the bat, and it lobs to point. Many milestones missed, but does he care much for them? Well played Viru. He raises his bat as he walks off. 309/2
47.2 to V Kohli, bowled him, a touch slower, 127ks, he is looking to hit this length delivery across the line and over midwicket, misses and is gone. 386/7
Dilhara Fernando906627.33249011
19.3 to SR Tendulkar, bowled him, Tendulkar has been bowled through the gate. Looks to run to third man a back-of-a-length delivery, but it jags back enough to beat the bat and take the top of off. Well bowled Dilhara, follows up two attempts at yorkers with a nice fast delivery short of length and cutting in. 153/1
36.1 to MS Dhoni, slower ball does it again, and the batting Powerplay has done it again for the fielding side. This slower delivery seemed fairly obvious from behind, but that;s not the case when you are batting, and Dhoni is drawn into a forward shot and is too late in taking the bottom hand off, the ball lobs to cover, and Sri Lanka now have a chance to save many records from falling. 311/3
Angelo Mathews706018.57146220
43.1 to Harbhajan Singh, another wicket goes, Mathews gets his man, Harbhajan looks to hit a short ball over point and gets the toe end of the bat and it carries straight to third man where Kula takes a safe catch. 352/6

Praveen Kumar906717.442510110
36.3 to KC Sangakkara, PK creates a third opportunity and finally someone holds onto it. Another slower bouncer, Sanga gets a top edge on the pull and Jadeja holds on to a simple catch at deep square leg. PK exults, it's been a tough day full of misfortune for him. But Sanga, take a bow, what an innings. 316/2
Ashish Nehra1008118.10188131
49.4 to AD Mathews, and Tendulkar has held onto the most important catch of the match. The first hittable delivery of the over, a low fulltoss, Mathews gets under it, but doesn't get enough elevation and Tendulkar holds on to a simple catch at midwicket. Crowd goes wild, SL dressing room is stunned. 409/8
Zaheer Khan1008808.80199220
Ravindra Jadeja807309.12156360
Harbhajan Singh1005825.80224100
37.3 to ST Jayasuriya, and Jaya goes, charges down too early, Harbhajan bowls flatter, shorter, and it's a normal offbreak. He is clearly beaten in the flight, looks to fend but can't cover the line and the ball sneaks through bat and pad, and Dhoni finishes the stumping efficiently. 328/3
39.1 to TM Dilshan, he has bowled him, he roars in delight, another double hundred missed, but Harbhajan has brought India right back in. He has just started his last over, Dilshan charges out, is beaten by the dip, the ball pitches on a length outside off, turns in enough to hit the stumps. Game on here. 339/4
Suresh Raina3037112.3330410
23.6 to WU Tharanga, Raina strikes, good stumping. Tharanga comes down the track again, Raina fires it in, the ball deflects off Tharanga's pads, goes one bounce and way down the leg side to Dhoni, but Tharanga is way out himself. 188/1
