  • 27.1 Malinga to Ganguly, OUT, Ganguly gifts his wicket! Malinga bowls a full and wide ball, Ganguly doesn't move his feet but reaches out for it, the ball bounces just before hitting the bat and Sangakkara takes a simple catch, that's a soft dismissal to end a fine innings

    India 169/5 MS Dhoni 4* (10b) CM Bandara 6-0-23-2

  • 45.4 Malinga to Karthik, OUT, the yorker gets him! Superb ball to follow the bouncer, it swings back into Karthik who tries to hit it on the leg side, he gets beaten and the ball hits the pad in front of middle and leg, was that missing leg? It looked close enough
    KD Karthik lbw b Malinga 31 (49b 1x4 0x6) SR: 63.26
    India 235/6 MS Dhoni 35* (55b) SL Malinga 8.4-0-71-2

  • 47.3 Maharoof to Harbhajan Singh, OUT, caught! and what a catch! Harbhajan throws all he has behind a heave that was intended to go down the ground, instead he gets a top edge that swirls high in the region towards third man, Jayawardene runs back and dives to his left to take a high-pressure catch
    Harbhajan Singh c Jayawardene b Maharoof 2 (7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 28.57

  • 49.1 Jayasuriya to Dhoni, 1 run, OUT, Dhoni hammers it down the ground and sets off for two runs, there was never two in it and Kumble was stranded hopelessly when the throw came in from long-on, from India's point of view Dhoni retains the strike
    A Kumble run out 2 (5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00
    India 248/8 MS Dhoni 44* (64b) ST Jayasuriya 8.1-0-34-0

  • 49.5 Jayasuriya to Dhoni, OUT, stunning, simply stunning, Dhoni had room to free his arms and he smashed that high over cover, Maharoof ran back looking over his head, running at full speed, Upul Tharanga was running in from the fence also at full speed, there was danger of a collision but Maharoof didn't lose focus, he kept his eye on the ball an outstanding catch running backwards
    MS Dhoni c Maharoof b Jayasuriya 48 (68b 1x4 0x6) SR: 70.58
    India 252/9 S Sreesanth 0* (0b) ST Jayasuriya 8.5-0-38-1
