Over 10.4 Umesh Yadav bowls a good length delivery to WU Tharanga, out Bowled!! The feet refuse to move, the hands refuse to stay close to the body. And he ends up chopping one way too close to be doing so onto his stumps off the inside edge.

Over 15.3 Ravichandran Ashwin bowls a tossed up delivery to Dimuth Karunaratne, out Caught by Rahane!! The ball kicks at Karunaratne, catching him on the gloves, before popping straight to Rahane at slip.

Over 20.2  Mohammed Shami bowls a good length delivery to Malinda Pushpakumara, out Caught by Saha!  This one's fuller, drawing Pushpakumara into the drive, and just about kissing the edge through to Saha.

Over 22.5  Mohammed Shami bowls a good length delivery to Kusal Mendis, out LBW! Mendis tries to play across the line but he misses and the ball struck on the pads. Umpire raises the finger very quickly.

Over 59.3 Ravichandran Ashwin bowls a tossed up delivery to Dilruwan Perera, out Caught by Hardik Pandya!  Perera went for the sweep shot against Ashwin, was down on one knee, but the ball jumped a bit extra, took the top edge and flew high in the air. Pandya runs forward and takes it.

Over 68.3  Mohammed Shami bowls it short of length to Lakshan Sandakan, out Caught by Saha!! Sandakan tries to cut without much of a feet movement, all he manages to do is to get a thick outside edge easy catch to Saha behind the stumps.

Over 69.5 Umesh Yadav bowls a slower one to DPDN Dickwella, out Caught by Rahane!! Dickwella opens the face of the bat and was looking to steer it behind point, got it a lot finer though and to the right of gully. Rahane arches sideways and holds onto a sharp chance.

Over 74.3 Ravichandran Ashwin bowls a tossed up delivery to Lahiru Kumara,  out Bowled! This was the carrom-ball from Ashwin, spun back in from outside off, Kumara didn't pick it up as he let it go by, the ball hits the top of the middle.
