Nuwan Kulasekara914715.22326100
2.6 to NV Ojha, Perfecto! Big inswinger, hits him in front of off, headed for middle, Ojha's bat is nowhere near it, and Kula has struck beautifully. Umpire Koertzen's slow finger of death comes up one of the last few times. Inswinger, outsinger, inswinger, elementary. 7/1
Thilan Thushara915736.33287041
34.2 to V Kohli, finally the frustration of finding the fielders again and again has got to Kohli. Looks to clear long-off this time, but doesn't get any power in this shot and holes out, Jeewan Mendis taking a nice safe catch. 171/4
48.4 to R Ashwin, what a catch! Length ball, drilled back straight down the wicket, and Thushara sticks his left hand to it, and takes it on the second attempt. Just to show how superb a catch it is, Umpire Koertzen is looking towards the straight boundary and wondering where the ball is. No reaction from Thushara either after completing this stunner. 259/8
48.5 to AB Dinda, and Dinda walks out, slower ball, and he heaves it over towards long-on, completely deceived by it. Kapugedara takes another catch, and Thushara is on hat-trick. 259/9
Thisara Perera403318.25116010
9.5 to KD Karthik, legcutter does it, and Karthik has gone for a middling score after a good start once again. This legcutter is slow off the pitch and Karthik looks to play on the up again, the bat slices in his hand and he offers a simple return catch. 41/2
Ajantha Mendis1005405.40283200
Jeevan Mendis602904.83131010
Suraj Randiv1013823.80261000
23.6 to YK Pathan, another ugly slog sweep, and this time he connects - to his own demise. Gets too much under it and skies it to Perera at long-on. 125/3
37.1 to RG Sharma, sharp offbreak, through the gap, and hits the top of middle stump. In SRT style, he semi-squats, suggesting it stayed low, but the ball has hit the top of middle, he was just late in bringing the bat down. 187/5
Tillakaratne Dilshan20512.5070000
41.1 to SK Raina, Kapu you beauty! Rubbish delivery, short and wide, and Raina hits it powerfully straight off extra cover, but Kapugedara flies to his lift, goalkeeper-style, and pouches it. Captain gets captain. 204/6

Pankaj Singh704506.42225111
Ashok Dinda7.204215.72226000
5.2 to TM Dilshan, Dilshan gets too excited, and looks to clear mid-on. The ball was there in his striking reach, but took the inside half of his bat and Yusuf Pathan at mid-on took a nice overhead catch. 29/1
Ravichandran Ashwin1005025.00313200
14.5 to WU Tharanga, against the run of play, edges this, just hangs his bat in a nothing shot, and the fullish delivery turns away taking the edge low towards slip where Kohli takes a smart catch. 81/2
40.6 to LD Chandimal, carrom ball does it! beautifully bowled. Chandimal comes down the track, knows he is beaten in the flight as this is short, but he looks to defend and plays for an off break. However, this one turns away and beats him all ends up, setting up an easy stumping. 215/4
Pragyan Ojha1004314.30361300
36.4 to CK Kapugedera, he has holed out at wide long-off. The intention was to go over extra cover, but the ball didn't quite comes on and he ended up hitting a lot straighter than he wanted. 195/3
