6.6 to WU Tharanga, this one will carry alright, and the angle has worked for Bhuvi, the last one held its line, this one comes in from short of a length and bounces, Tharanga leans out half forward, is completely cramped by the angle and Dhoni takes the inside edge. 27/1
13.1 to DPMD Jayawardene, oh dear, Mahela's just guided this tamely to the lone slip, it was a nothing delivery, a wide one moving away a bit, Mahela could have done a lot with it, he went rather softly at it with an open face, did all those Ishant short balls have anything to do with this?. 49/2
Vinay Kumar611502.50251000
Ishant Sharma814525.62305210
37.5 to HDRL Thirimanne, gone this time, walks out, makes some room outside leg, and slogs at a short ball, mid off runs back to his left and takes it. 171/3
45.2 to AD Mathews, now Mathews goes, a short ball outside leg stump, Mathews made lots of room, and gave it a heave, ended up slicing it to third man, nothing shot. 193/7
Virat Kohli301705.6670010
Suresh Raina602504.16182000
Ravichandran Ashwin1004224.20342010
39.1 to KC Sangakkara, Sanga's gone, big strike, Ashwin stops and bowls a tossed up full delivery, Sanga could not get under it as he tried to loft it, and mid on took a high, tumbling catch. 174/4
39.5 to MDKJ Perera, Perera has been duped all too easily, he's walked down to a juicily tossed up ball, missed it with all the turn and bounce, and Dhoni's moved across to do the rest, that bounced too much. 176/5
Ravindra Jadeja7.512342.93291010
42.2 to LD Chandimal, Sri Lanka are crumbling, Chandimal's swept in the air, he's made good connection, but picked out deep backward square leg to perfection. 183/6
46.1 to HMRKB Herath, Dhoni's missed the stumping on the first attempt, but that has ended up helping him get the wicket, Herath missed a sweep, Dhoni collected but could not break the stumps on the first attempt, Herath was in at that time, but he lost balance and went out, Dhoni was alert enough to spot that and did not miss the second time, an unusually vigorous appeal from him suggests he rather enjoyed that. 196/8
46.3 to SL Malinga, skips out, tries to go big but skies it, Bhuvneshar charges in from long off, extra cover runs across too, but Bhuvneshwar has judged it superbly and avoided the fielder as well. 196/9
48.5 to RAS Lakmal, that is it, he walks out and misses outside off, Dhoni gathers, Lakmal is so far down he does not even look back, Dhoni waits and removes the bail finally. 201/10

Shaminda Eranga9.425025.17374210
8.4 to S Dhawan, he is gone, he gets a brute of a delivery! It was on short of length and reared up surprising Dhawan with the bounce. He tried to get away from the line, but it was too late as he was already shaping to play it on the front foot. He walks back disappointed, but Sri Lanka are happy, it's a big breakthrough and early in the innings. 23/1
10.4 to V Kohli, loud appeal for caught behind, which after some time, the umpire gives. There was a loud noise when the ball went past the bat and the only doubt was if that had carried to the keeper. Once the square leg umpire nodded, it was curtains for Kohli. Beautiful delivery again, on a length outside off and just straightening enough to take the outside edge. There wasn't not much of a forward stride by the batsman there. 27/2
Suranga Lakmal1013313.30411130
34.1 to SK Raina, and now Raina follows! Sri Lanka are indeed pulling the rug under India's batsmen's feet! Raina went for a hoick to the leg side, but the length delivery took a decent edge and flew at a comfortable height to the left of the keeper. 145/5
Angelo Mathews1013813.80383000
46.2 to R Vinay Kumar, caught at short third man! What a terrible shot to play at this stage! It was a shortish delivery outside off and Vinay chooses to send it to the stands, gets a thick edge and the ball balloons for the fielder at short third man to take an easy catch. When he got five balls in this over, was he planning to finish the match here itself? Absurd. 182/9
Lasith Malinga1015815.80347130
41.5 to B Kumar, He's gone! he's gone! It's a yorker, yes, but it's slower too! Bhuvi's bat came down a touch too early and he gets hit on the toe, right in front.... 167/8
Rangana Herath1022042.00451000
22.6 to KD Karthik, that flies, that really flies but Mahela Jayawardene is standing in the way at slip and it ends up as catch No 201, DK tried to punch this off the back foot, it hurries on from a length, and the thick edge races to Mahela, he does well to hang on somehow. 77/3
31.1 to RG Sharma, he is gone! it has hit the middle stump just a couple of inches from the base. Stayed very low after pitching on length, Rohit was rightly crouching down because the ball was indeed very very low, unlike some of his Mumbai predecessors. Is this the opening that Sri Lanka need?. 139/4
37.1 to RA Jadeja, and another one for Herath! Jadeja has been taken out! The weight of the remaining 50 runs is getting heavier on the Indians. It was a flatter delivery and Jadeja went on the back foot, but it pitched on off and spun back sharply into the batsman to hit him on the back leg. Easy decision for the umpire. 152/6
37.2 to R Ashwin, two in two! Herath does it again, he bowls a quicker arm ball and the batsman gets stuck in the crease as he tries to defend. He misses the line of the ball and gets hit in front of the leg stump. The umpire raises the finger of doom.... 152/7
