Fall of wickets: 1-20 (Virender Sehwag, 5.2 ov), 2-26 (Dinesh Karthik, 7.4 ov), 3-50 (Rohit Sharma, 12.2 ov), 4-61 (Suresh Raina, 17.2 ov), 5-71 (MS Dhoni, 21.6 ov), 6-77 (Ravindra Jadeja, 25.2 ov), 7-77 (Praveen Kumar, 25.3 ov), 8-80 (Ashish Nehra, 26.2 ov), 9-99 (Yuvraj Singh, 30.2 ov), 10-103 (Ishant Sharma, 33.4 ov)
26.2 to A Nehra, and he is gone! good bouncer, and he gloves it through to Sanga. SL on fire here. too good for the tailender, Nehra fends at it, and it goes off the left glove. And needless to say, Sanga is standing back for Malinga. 80/8
30.2 to Yuvraj Singh, Premeditated shot. Camps on the back foot, looking to hit this - a full ball - over square-leg-midwicket region, and is hit on the back leg. Given out, but missing off clearly. It is umpire Rauf this time. 99/9
5.2 to V Sehwag, big shout for lbw and given by Kumar Dharmasena! It's a huge inswinger from outside off, and although it has caught Sehwag on the back foot, it seems to be sliding down the leg side. Dharmasena takes his time and raises the finger. Sehwag is not happy, but the tracker serive shows the ball would have kissed the outside of the leg stump. 20/1
7.4 to KD Karthik, Kula strikes again. Good planning, good catch, or is it a catch? Sanga has been standing up to stop Karthik from walking down and negating the swing. And after pinning him in the crease, Kula has been slipping in the straighter ones to beat him outside off. This time it is very close to off, and Sanga and Kula go for a big shout right away. There is no sound as the ball passes the bat, though. Nothing on the snicko either. 26/2
12.2 to RG Sharma, this is so plumb Mathews doesn't even appeal! Outswinger followed by inswinger, and gone! Simple as that. This time he plays around it without any feet movement, and it hits him in front of middle. Mathews knows he is gone and turns around to appeal only after he has crossed the batsman. Don't see anything wrong with it - it was so straight. Sharma again doesn't look happy and slowly trudges off, that's becoming a bit of a habit for him. Needs to watch it - last time he got away perhaps because Randiv's act hogged the headlines. Sharma's reaction then was clear dissent, and not the first instance in his career either. 50/3
17.2 to SK Raina, and Raina is gone! Pretty similar to the one where he was not given! Perera strikes second ball. Seems like Dharmasena has made up for Rauf's mistake. Back of a length, outside off, stays low, beats Raina, snicko shows nothing, Raina is not convinced. Sri Lanka will take it - they had him in the last over. 61/4
21.6 to MS Dhoni, no need for an umpire here! not the smartest shot Dhoni has played either. Sanga goes back to standing back, and immediately Dhoni goes for a walk down the pitch, and looks to turn this to leg from way outside off. the ball holds its line enough to get the edge, and Sanga holds it safely. Dhoni walks. 71/5
25.2 to RA Jadeja, nine-ball duck for Jadeja! Squared up as he looks to turn this to leg from around off, and the leading edge settles safely with gully. 77/6
25.3 to P Kumar, and PK is gone first ball! Caught at mid-off! Perera on a hat-trick. PK looks at the pitch, then the bat. It was an extravagant drive on a back-of-a-length ball outside off. Nowhere near it. Ordinary shot, good, old tailender shot. 77/7
33.4 to I Sharma, what a beaut to finish the five-for! slightly back of a length, around off, Ishant plays for the angle, the ball holds its line to take the off stump. Perera is pleased as punch, and why shouldn't he be?. 103/10

9.2 to TM Dilshan, Dilshan goes! He was in too much of a hurry to finish this asap. Looks to loft it straight down the ground, but it is not full enough and he ends up skying it to mid-off. 79/1
9.3 to DPMD Jayawardene, Sharma on a hat-trick! Short ball, and pulled straight to midwicket. Sri Lankans want an early finish, but these wickets are delaying proceedings. 79/2
