141.1 to VVS Laxman, Laxman's been sent back! Tempted by the flighted delivery, came down the track and tried to clear mid-off, mistimed it straight to him, got to the pitch but didn't connect well enough, falls for the bait, Dilshan takes it easily. 613/5
145.2 to MS Dhoni, deceived him in the flight, Dhoni didn't have an idea there, tossed up on the off stump and angled in from round the wicket, Dhoni lunged forward to push it in the direction of mid-off, was a little too early into that shot and was bowled through the gate. 619/6
149.4 to Harbhajan Singh, actually turns in, a tweak of the fingers and gets it to move in off the pitch, Harbhajan, playing for the away spin, stretches forward to defend but it darts in through the gate to crash into the stumps, Dhoni, too, was gone in a similar fashion. 639/7
153.3 to Z Khan, This Indian innings is rapidly heading to a close, Herath picks up another one, his usual delivery turning away from the right-hander takes the outside edge as Zaheer takes a big swing, Mahela Jayawardene at first slip does the rest. 641/9
153.6 to S Sreesanth, Herath takes five, that was the carrom ball, Sreesanth stayed on the backfoot, didn't pick the delivery, struck low on his pads, he's sent on his way. 642/10
Ajantha Mendis38316224.2613212400
102.5 to SR Tendulkar, the drop doesn't prove too costly, charges down the track again and tries to clear Samaraweera at a slightly deepish mid-off but is unable to, didn't get the desired connection or the elevation and found the fielder.. 464/3
152.2 to Yuvraj Singh, that's the end of Yuvraj, looking to mow that to midwicket, doesn't get it high enough clear the infield, Sangakkara times his jump well at midwicket to pull off a smart catch. 641/8
Muthiah Muralidaran37017524.7211616100
41.2 to V Sehwag, gone! Dilshan takes a smart catch at extra cover, tossed it up and it landed on a good length just outside off, Sehwag, though not to the pitch, was tempted to force it past extra cover but played it uppishly and Dilshan took a sharp chance diving to his left. 233/1
75.1 to G Gambhir, A piece of magic from Murali, he was bowling from round the wicket, Gambhir punches the ball to the bowler's right, Murali flings himself full-length to pluck that one inches off the ground, not bad for a 37-year-old. It also ends Gambhir's remarkable innings at 167. 370/2

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Zaheer Khan1755113.00848003
0.1 to TM Dilshan, What a start for India, Dilshan is gone first ball, shortish ball well outside leg stump, Dilshan closes the face of the bat too early, gets the leading edge which balloons towards debutant Ojha at mid-on, big blow this for Sri Lanka. 0/1
Sreesanth2247553.409810001
29.2 to NT Paranavitana, gone! Poking at one that moved away from him after pitching, short of a good length, tried to push at it off the back foot, a little away from his body, gets a thick outside edge to Dhoni who takes a sharp catch, diving low to his left. 82/2
33.4 to KC Sangakkara, bowled'im! Dragged it on, full and wide, reached for a flowing drive through the covers but ended up getting an inside edge onto his stumps. 101/3
37.2 to TT Samaraweera, bowled him! Sreesanth hits the good length outside off again, Samaraweera attempts to, he gets a thick bottom edge on to his stumps, it was a bit wide actually and it stayed a touch low. 111/4
66.6 to HAPW Jayawardene, Sreesanth gets a wicket with possibly the worst ball of the over, shortish and wide, Prasanna goes after it, nicks it to Dhoni, no repeat of the massive stand between the Jayawardenes. 194/6
74.4 to HMRKB Herath, what a change, gets Herath first ball, length ball angles across the batsman and takes out offstump, thats five for Sreesanth, welcome back. 216/8
Harbhajan Singh2155422.57984100
43.5 to AD Mathews, gone! Harbhajan held it back just a hint, got it to pitch on a good length on the off, it held its line and went on straight but Mathews played for turn as he lunged forward to defend, played inside the line, missed and it clipped the bails on its way to the keeper. 134/5
83.6 to UWMBCA Welegedara, again the change of angle works, pitching on middle and off, turns back into the batsman, struck on the pads, Nigel Llong sends the batsman on his way, and that's the biggest first-innings lead India have ever gained over Sri Lanka. 229/10
Pragyan Ojha23123721.601193101
71.2 to DPMD Jayawardene, just as I say that, Mahela is gone, he looks to loft Ojha over mid-on, doesn't connect as well as he would have liked after charging down the track, gifts a catch to Tendulkar, a wicket to remember for Ojha. 204/7
78.6 to M Muralidaran, Murali is gone, lbw, hit low in front of middle, Hawk-Eye shows the ball would have gone on to hit the middle of middle, Ojha gets another, we won't be seeing any of Murali endearing pyrotechnics with the bat today. 219/9

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Zaheer Khan1106315.725110009
24.4 to AD Mathews, gone! Took some pace off it and banged it short outside off, Mathews went for the pull again, was a little early into that shot, took the top edge and Dravid, fielding at gully, dived while moving to his right to take a smart catch. 79/5
Sreesanth1144714.27488001
3.3 to TM Dilshan, fantastic delivery to get rid of Dilshan, Sreesanth gets that outswinger going, Dilshan prods at it, ends in an outside edge, easy for Dhoni. 13/1
Harbhajan Singh2229834.458612100
19.1 to KC Sangakkara, This match is heading to an early finish, Sangakkara is gone now, not much footwork as he looks to dab ab outside off ball, gets an inside-edge, goes onto hit offstump, two massive wickets, perhaps Sangakkara was distracted after that poor call to run out Mahela. 54/4
37.5 to HAPW Jayawardene, bowled! Harbhjan slips the off break from round the wicket through a massive gap between bat and pad, the batsman had pushed forward and left a sizeable gap, the ball pitched around off and spun back. 140/6
41.2 to HMRKB Herath, he's given him! Angling it from round the wicket towards middle and off, appeared to hold its line as he bent low to sweep that square, missed and was rapped on the back pads, the umpire upheld the appeal but a replay would help confirm if the decision was the right one. 154/7
Virender Sehwag30411.33150000
10.5 to NT Paranavitana, Paranavitana is gone lbw, the umpires have been in top form today, the ball came into the batsman, hits him on the back pad just before he gets bat on it, that ball was going on to hit middle and off, Sehwag strikes in his first over. 37/2
Pragyan Ojha15.343622.32733100
44.5 to M Muralidaran, the entertainment's over, shortish on the off stump, kept it flat and was a touch quicker, Murali bent low in an attempt to slog that over midwicket, it held its line, beat the swing of the bat and crashed into the off stump. 191/8
65.3 to UWMBCA Welegedara, this Test is over, innings and 144 run victory for India, Welegedara closes the face of the bat too soon, leading edge pops up to Ojha, India celebrate their 100th Test win, dogged effort from Samaraweera but he has run out of partners. 269/10
Sachin Tendulkar10606.0031000
Yuvraj Singh20713.5091000
64.2 to BAW Mendis, breakthrough! one wicket to go, the ball goes straight on with the arm, Mendis looks to defend off the front foot, is struck on the back pad, he's gone lbw. 264/9
