    12.3 beautifully bowled and I think Rahul's in trouble here. And yes, he's not got his foot back in time, so he'll be out stumped. Nicely tossed up googly, that dragged him forward to drive. Was bowled wider of off too, and Rahul beaten all ends up, cannot connect. The bails are off in a flash and he didn't have enough time to drag his back foot back over the line 118/3
    10.5 swept hard but straight to deep midwicket. Dhawan was looking good after initial jitters, so he'll be unhappy with that. Struck the sweep well enough, but didn't place it well. Tossed up on off, didn't quite get it off the middle, more towards the end of the bat and Sri Lanka have a breakthrough 97/1
    11.3 plumb in front and Samson won't review. He's walking off. Googly on a length outside off, and he didn't read it at all, played down the wrong line. The ball strikes pad, in line with off. That was hitting the stumps. Six and out for Samson. 106/2
    not out
    12.5 another one goes down! India are crumbling after a rollicking start. Wristspin winning the day. Sandakan once again follows a bad ball with a very good one, slows it through the air and bowls with an enticing loop. Iyer is looking to punch down the ground, way too early into the shot and ends up popping it back for the easiest of return catches. 122/4
    17.3 suicidal second and Kohli's gone. He was looking supremely in command but there was no need to go for that run when there wasn't one and Kohli is run out by a long way. Fuller on the stumps, he flicked it to deep square leg. There was a fielder there. Kohli was charging down for the second, probably took even Pandey by surprise. The throw was accurate and Kohli is gone 164/5
    17.4 upper cuts it straight to third man. digs it in short outside off, Sundar makes decent connection but that's poor placement and third man gobbles it up 164/6

    0.6 dragged straight to mid-on. Poor position for the pull short. This is 141kph, short and rising across him. Feet are rooted, there's no pivot as he makes the connection and he's just too far away from the ball to get it off the middle. Sundar has time to get side on and watch it into his hands 5/1
    1.3 steered to cover. The same static feet that allowed him room for the previous shot have cost him this time. Short of a length, rising and moving away outside off. Has to reach out and slice at this on the rise. Finds Iyer with precision 11/2
    5.1 a repeat against the left-handers! Yorker speared in at middle stump. Perera backs into the leg side and looks to jam his bat down at this. He's got it down alright but down the wrong line. This is past his inside edge and crashes into the stumps, much like the wicket last match of Gunathilaka 26/4
    3.1 appeal for lbw while Pandey swoops in from point to take the stumps out. It's a full toss on leg stump, Perera is rapped on the pad as he looks to flick. Doesn't look a bad shout that. In the meantime, he's run down the pitch, possibly doesn't know where the ball is. Oshada doesn't want it but reluctantly goes in the end. Pandey sprints to the stumps and completes the run out 15/3
    11.2 caught by Pandey at long-on. Washington invited the big shot again, but this time he floated it up well wide of off, making Mathews fetch the flat-batted sweep. He gets it off the toe-end. Pandey's at long-on, has to run to his left, but he's not going to drop any ball that's in the air near him 94/5
    15.3 caught at third man. Sri Lanka's last bit of resistance has ended. Good short ball by Sainia, outside off. Dhananjaya wanted to slap it over point, but ends up not middling it and slicing it straight to third man. Was at an awkward height to play that shot 122/9
    13.3 soft dismissal. Digs it in back of a length, and Shanaka thinks he has the room to pull this, but is late on the shot. Ends up popping the easiest of catches back to the bowler 110/6
    13.5 direct hit by Chahal at mid-off. This was a yorker gone wrong, ends up as a low full toss. Punched forcefully to mid-off and that is some casual, casual running between the wickets. He was just ambling. Chahal was at mid-off, the ball came straight to him and he released it quickly, finding the stumps with the batsman well short. 110/7
    14.6 beaten completely and stumped. danced down the track but Washington bowled it straight and wide of off. The batsman went for an almighty swing, but connected only with air. Straightforward stumping for Samson 118/8
    15.5 spoons a catch to mid-off and India have won the series 2-0. Another short ball, too well directed for a tailender and too quick also. Malinga wanted to thwack that over cow corner, gets it high on the bat because he's too slow on it and it goes off the toe-end to the fielder there, who happens to be Kohli. 123/10
