BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Umesh Yadav1016116.10306100
48.2 to AD Mathews, and he misses another length ball! Eyes lighten up seeing this length ball, looks for the big mow over midwicket, and misses and loses his off stump. 226/7
Ashok Dinda9.504424.47332020
49.3 to KMDN Kulasekara, another slower ball, 101ks, too good for Kulasekara who plays across the line and has his middle stump taken out. 240/9
49.5 to BAW Mendis, another slower ball and another stump is out of the ground! 101.6ks, and Mendis is early into the shot and the leg stump is gone. While the specialist batsmen kept picking his slower balls easily, the same delivery has proved to be too good for the tail. 242/10
Pragyan Ojha1004424.40301100
10.4 to TT Samaraweera, Ojha strikes in his first over! Not the smartest of shots, giving him the charge too early, and Ojha shortens the length, and Samaraweera is nowhere close to the pitch of the ball and pushes at it away from the body. There is enough turn to beat that push, and Karthik does the rest. 39/2
45.3 to NLTC Perera, again stays back to a fullish delivery and pulls and finds midwicket. Big wicket for India, Sri Lanka have once again been hit when they looked like getting away. 204/6
Amit Mishra1004004.00321110
Ravindra Jadeja1014924.90292200
37.6 to CK Kapugedera, Kapugedera will still hope he had not taken the single. Back on strike, he charges down the track, is not quite to the pitch of the ball, and ends up chipping it in front of his body, straight down the lap of long-off. 150/4
39.2 to LPC Silva, Silva is gone! premeditates the sweep, gets way too far across the stumps, misses a full and straight delivery, and is a dead duck. 156/5

Nuwan Kulasekara913413.77333010
6.4 to M Vijay, gone! Kula strikes with the inswinger! Perfect area, and he finally plays the drive, and is beaten and hit on the back leg. It seemed in live time that an inside edge might have saved him, but replays prove the umpire to be correct. Good persistent bowling. On second look, the snicko confirms an edge. 28/1
Dilhara Fernando8.305806.82203120
Ajantha Mendis1006416.40206000
9.4 to KD Karthik, two-fingered googly, he read it too, rocked back to pull it, and instead of going over midwicket, he hit it straight into his lap. Soft dismissal, he is beside himself, did almost everything right, yet at the last moment the execution went wrong. 47/2
Suraj Randiv905115.66203100
37.4 to V Kohli, Kohli has missed out on a century here! He wants to finish this early, comes down the track to play the lofted shot, but gets too close to the pitch of the ball, and doesn't get the desired elevation and holes out to long-on. 201/3
