Over 1.5 Umesh Yadav bowls a good length delivery to Dimuth Karunaratne, out Lbw!! Karunaratne has fallen over on the flick. Plumb. Oh wait, he's reviewed it. That looks like a shocking review. It's such a bad review that even the third umpire can't stop himself from commenting on it.

Over 14.2  Mohammed Shami bowls a good length delivery to Danushka Gunathilaka, out Caught by Dhawan!!  That was a length ball, harmlessly put outside off and the batsman went after it to pay the price.

Over 14.6  Mohammed Shami bowls a good length delivery to Kusal Mendis, out Caught by Dhawan!! The ball nibbled a wee bit, enough to take the edge and nestle into the hands of Dhawan again at first slip.

Over 39.2 Ravichandran Ashwin bowls a tossed up delivery to DPDN Dickwella,  out Caught by Mukund!! Dickwella was committed to the front foot, but was bluntly trying to block. Hard hands, pops up off the outside half and Mukund, at silly point, hung onto a grass-flirter with a dive to his right and takes a good low catch.

Over 58.5 Umesh Yadav bowls a pitched up delivery to DPDN Dickwella, Boundary! Leaning on the front foot and the next thing he sees is the ball blazing through extra cover for four.

Over 66.2 Ravindra Jadeja bowls a tossed up delivery to HMRKB Herath, out Caught by Rahane!! Herath went for the reverse sweep and once again failed to make proper contact like before. The ball lobbed in the air and slip ran back to collect an easy catch.

Over 73.5 Ravichandran Ashwin bowls a tossed up delivery to Lahiru Kumara, no runs, gets forward and defends it back to the bowler.

Over 78.3 Ravindra Jadeja bowls a quicker arm ball to Lahiru Kumara, out Bowled! Kumara was pushing forward, ended up playing inside the line, the ball curved past his outside edge and rattled into the off-stump.
