live commentary

  • Over 27. no runs. Bowler: Mohammed Shami. Sri Lanka: 75/7(rr 2.78)
  • 26.3

    Mohammed Shami to Dasun Shanaka. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to mid on for no runs, fielded by Pujara.

    What a finish that was to a Test. Light has saved Sri Lanka from certain defeat while India will feel that they were a few overs from victory. For most of the five days Sri Lanka were in the driving seat but when it counted India were dominant today and gave themselves the chance to take the win.

    A couple of stand-out performances from both teams including Suranga Lakmal for his seven wickets in the match while Virat Kohli once again showed his class with a brilliant century.

    Let's hope the rest of the series is as exhilarating as this one.

    Mohammed Shami to Dasun Shanaka. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Ashwin.

  • 26.1

  • Over 26. no runs. Bowler: Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Sri Lanka: 75/7(rr 2.88)
  • 25.6

    Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Rangana Herath. Half volley, outside off stump no foot movement defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Kumar.

  • 25.4

    Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Rangana Herath. Seaming away length ball, off stump on the front foot, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Saha.

  • 25.3

    Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Rangana Herath. Length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, to cover for no runs, fielded by Jadeja.

  • 25.2

    OUT! Bowled. Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Dilruwan Perera. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, missed. What an absolute jaffer of a delivery. Aiming towards middle stump but it seams once pitching and knocks out the off stump. That is unplayable. India still have hope while Chandimal is pacing around anxiously in the dressing room.

  • 25.1

    Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Dilruwan Perera. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump no foot movement defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Saha.

  • Over 25. 6 runs. Bowler: Mohammed Shami. Sri Lanka: 75/6(rr 3.00)
  • 24.6

    Mohammed Shami to Dasun Shanaka. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to cover for no runs, fielded by Kumar.

  • 24.5

    Mohammed Shami to Dasun Shanaka. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Saha.

  • 24.4

    Mohammed Shami to Dasun Shanaka. Length ball, outside off stump no foot movement, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Saha.

  • 24.3

    FOUR! Mohammed Shami to Dasun Shanaka. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot flick, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Late tail back into Shanaka but he has gone with it and there is plenty of space in the outfield.

  • 24.2

    Mohammed Shami to Dasun Shanaka. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to long on for 2 runs, fielded by Pujara.

  • 24.1

    Mohammed Shami to Dasun Shanaka. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Shami.

  • Over 24. no runs. Bowler: Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Sri Lanka: 69/6(rr 2.88)

    Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Dilruwan Perera. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to gully for no runs, fielded by Ashwin.

  • 23.5

    Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Dilruwan Perera. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Saha.

  • 23.4

    Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Dilruwan Perera. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Kumar.

  • 23.3

    Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Dilruwan Perera. Bouncer, outside off stump ducked, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Saha.

  • 23.2

    APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Dilruwan Perera. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Is that two in two? Kumar has Dilruwan LBW but the batsman has reviewed straight away. Nipped back but it has hit Perera on the back leg, missing is the verdict on Hawk-Eye.

  • 23.1

    OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Niroshan Dickwella. Length ball, outside off stump moves in front flick, hit pad. Got him this time. Walks across his stumps but he hasn't got far enough across to save him from being LBW. Hits him in-line and umpire's call on the stumps. Big wicket in the context of this game.

  • Over 23. no runs. Bowler: Mohammed Shami. Sri Lanka: 69/5(rr 3.00)
  • 22.6

    Mohammed Shami to Dasun Shanaka. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Kumar.

  • Over 22. no runs. Bowler: Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Sri Lanka: 69/5(rr 3.14)
  • 21.6

    Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Niroshan Dickwella. Short, outside off stump down the track, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, shy attempt by Saha.

  • 21.5

    Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Niroshan Dickwella. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Saha.

  • 21.4

    APPEAL! Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Niroshan Dickwella. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, inside edge to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Saha, appeal made for Caught. More drama at Eden Gardens. The ball has brushed the inside of the bat but is dieing as it reaches Saha. Soft signal is out but the third umpire is going to overturn the decision. It seems as though the ball has bounced just before reaching the keeper.

  • 21.2

    Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Niroshan Dickwella. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, to gully for no runs, run save by Rahane, shy attempt by Kohli.

  • 21.1

    Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Niroshan Dickwella. Length ball, outside off stump no foot movement, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Saha.

  • Over 21. no runs. Bowler: Mohammed Shami. Sri Lanka: 69/5(rr 3.29)
  • 20.6

    Mohammed Shami to Dasun Shanaka. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to mid on for no runs, fielded by Ashwin.

  • 20.5

    Mohammed Shami to Dasun Shanaka. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to mid on for no runs, fielded by Ashwin.

  • 20.4

    OUT! Bowled. Mohammed Shami to Dinesh Chandimal. In-swinging half volley, outside off stump on the front foot working, missed. Outstanding delivery from Shami. Late tail back into Chandimal and the batsman has overbalanced. The stumps are sent flying and Kohli is roaring once again.

  • 20.3

    Mohammed Shami to Dinesh Chandimal. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Pujara.

  • 20.2

    APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Mohammed Shami to Dinesh Chandimal. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump no foot movement defending, hit pad to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Saha, appeal made for Caught. Hopeful review from India. There is a noise but the bat is way away from the ball. The replay shows the ball clipping the top of the pad and he is hit outside the line of off stump so can't be given out LBW.

  • 20.1

    Mohammed Shami to Dinesh Chandimal. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Saha.

  • Over 20. 7 runs. Bowler: Ravindra Jadeja. Sri Lanka: 69/4(rr 3.45)
  • 19.6

    Ravindra Jadeja to Niroshan Dickwella. Stock ball half volley, outside off stump no foot movement pushing, to cover for no runs, fielded by Rahul.

  • 19.5

    FOUR! Ravindra Jadeja to Niroshan Dickwella. Stock ball half volley, outside off stump no foot movement driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Overpitched and driven through the gap. Plenty of power behind that.

  • 19.4

    Ravindra Jadeja to Dinesh Chandimal. Stock ball half volley, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Ashwin.

  • 19.3

    Ravindra Jadeja to Dinesh Chandimal. Stock ball yorker, outside off stump no foot movement driving, to deep backward point for 2 runs, fielded by Ashwin.

  • 19.2

    Ravindra Jadeja to Dinesh Chandimal. Stock ball yorker, middle stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Jadeja.

  • 19.1

    Ravindra Jadeja to Dinesh Chandimal. Stock ball full toss, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Yadav.

  • Over 19. no runs. Bowler: Mohammed Shami. Sri Lanka: 62/4(rr 3.26)
  • 18.6

    Mohammed Shami to Niroshan Dickwella. Length ball, outside off stump no foot movement pushing, to cover for no runs, fielded by Pujara.

  • 18.5

    Mohammed Shami to Niroshan Dickwella. Back of a length, outside off stump no foot movement, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Saha.

  • 18.4

    Mohammed Shami to Niroshan Dickwella. Back of a length, outside off stump no foot movement, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Saha.

  • 18.3

    Mohammed Shami to Niroshan Dickwella. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Ashwin. This is brilliant. Dickwella is making Shami wait until he can bowl which is really annoying him. The umpires are having to have words with both parties as this is getting heated.

  • 18.2

    Mohammed Shami to Niroshan Dickwella. Short, outside off stump on the back foot defending, outside edge to slips for no runs, fielded by Dhawan.

  • 18.1

    Mohammed Shami to Niroshan Dickwella. Bouncer, outside off stump ducked, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Saha.

  • Over 18. 5 runs. Bowler: Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Sri Lanka: 62/4(rr 3.44)
  • 17.6

    FOUR! Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Dinesh Chandimal. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, well timed past third man for 4 runs. The scoreboard continues to tick over. Chandimal is trying to play as late as possible which enables him to find the gaps behind point.

  • 17.5

    Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Dinesh Chandimal. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to gully for no runs, fielded by Rahane.

  • 17.4

    Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Dinesh Chandimal. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Saha.

  • 17.3

    Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Niroshan Dickwella. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Pujara.

  • 17.2

    Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Niroshan Dickwella. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to extra cover for no runs, fielded by Jadeja.

  • 17.1

    Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Niroshan Dickwella. Length ball, middle stump no foot movement defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Kumar.

  • Key events
  • 88.4

    That is 104 for Virat Kohli off 121 balls.

  • 85.4

    OUT! Caught. Gamage to Kumar. Back of a length, off stump on the back foot pulling, leading edge in the air uncontrolled to gully, by Perera. Smart bowling from Gamage. Follows the batsman and cramps him for room with a chest high delivery. The ball loops straight up and Dilruwan comfortably takes the catch.

  • 83.5

    That is 303 for India off 506 balls.

  • 83.4

    OUT! Bowled. Shami to Lakmal. Length ball, outside off stump no foot movement driving, inside edge.

    Swing and a miss. Lakmal's stumps are knocked over via a chop on. Shami finishes with 4-100 while Kumar also chipped in with 4-88. It wasn't enough to prevent Sri Lanka from generating a lead of 122 though and with the pitch offering a little bit of extra bounce India will not find it easy.

  • 82.3

    APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. Lakmal to Kohli. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot flick, inside edge for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Lifeline for Virat Kohli. Sri Lanka thought they had their man after he was struck on the front pad but the Indian captain immediately asks for the review. Little edge just as the ball passes the bat as otherwise that looked plumb.

  • 82.3

    OUT! Caught. Kumar to Herath. Back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot cutting, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep backward point, by Shami. There's the breakthrough for India. The only man out in the deep and Herath has picked him out perfectly. Short and there for the taking but Herath is hanging back slightly which is why the shot goes aerial.

  • 79.3

    OUT! Caught. Shanaka to Saha. Length ball, outside off stump moves in front pushing, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to short extra cover, by Samarawickrama. On the move and Saha can't keep the ball on the ground. The short cover fielder took a smart grab just off the floor to dismiss Saha. Just as the flattens out another twist happens.

  • 77.3

    That is 50 for Rangana Herath off 83 balls.

  • 73.5

    OUT! Bowled. Shanaka to Ashwin. Seaming in half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, missed. Middle stump knocked out of the ground. Late movement back into Ashwin after he was tempted to play the booming drive by the fuller length. The game twists again.

  • 71.6

    That is 51 for Virat Kohli off 81 balls.

  • 68.6

    OUT! Caught. Shami to Perera. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Saha. Superb delivery which deserved a wicket. In the channel and Perera has to play at it, a bit of movement though and he ends up playing the wrong line. Thinnest of edges and he is walking off straight away.

  • 65.5

    OUT! Caught. Perera to Jadeja. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, outside edge to slips, dropped catch by Dickwella, by Thirimanne. A little extra bounce and Dilruwan has his first. The experiment to put Jadeja up the order hasn't worked this time. Trying to punch the ball off the back foot but the ball pops up and kisses the edge. Dickwella gets a glove on it which lobs it up to Thirimanne at first slip.

  • 59.3

    OUT! Caught. Gamage to Shami. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Shanaka. Shami continues to swing the bat and this time his luck runs out. The ball skews into the hands of deep mid wicket and is comfortably pouched to complete the innings.

    That was a thoroughly entertaining session of play, something for everyone to enjoy there. Some high quality bowling, some free-spirited batting and in the end a total that leaves the game in the balance. If the sun continues to beat down and the pitch flatten out, the tourists might just fancy their chances of a healthy lead. India, however, possess a spicy pace attack that can certainly exploit any assistance this afternoon.

  • 58.3

    APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Lakmal to Yadav. Short, off stump on the back foot working, hit body to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Dickwella, appeal made for Caught Is there some glove on that down the legside? Sri Lanka think so but the umpire doesn't. Chandimal asks for a review but the umpire was spot on so the tourists have lost both reviews.

  • 56.6

    APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. Shami to Perera. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Beautiful bowling from Shami. Nips back off the seam and beats the bat by a distance. Perera wasn't going to review at first but he will be glad he has after seeing Hawk-Eye. Impact outside the line so the decision is reversed.

  • 56.2

    OUT! Caught. Lakmal to Kumar. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Dickwella. Edged and gone, Lakmal strikes on his return to the attack and now has four wickets to his name. This is a classic dismissal, just getting a little nip off the surface to kiss the outside edge through to Dickwella.

  • 55.2

    That is 202 for Sri Lanka off 332 balls.

  • 54.2

    OUT! Caught. Shami to Chandimal. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Saha. How quickly does this game change? A couple of minutes ago Sri Lanka were in the driving seat but three quick wickets has made all the difference. It's Shami again who finds the edge of the bat after there was enough movement in the air. The captain is gone.

  • 54.1

    APPEAL! Lakmal to Jadeja. Seaming in back of a length, down leg side no foot movement working, hit pad to gully for no runs, fielded by Perera, appeal made for L.B.W. Wrapped on the pads once again. This one looks too high and possibly pitching outside leg stump.

  • 53.3

    OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Kumar to Shanaka. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump no foot movement, hit pad. Oh dear. Another Sri Lankan batsman getting out LBW leaving the ball. Shanaka saw the line early but the ball has jagged back prodigiously and struck him on the back pad. He opts for the review hoping height will save him but it is clipping the bails on Hawk-Eye.

  • 52.6

    OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Lakmal to Rahane. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump no foot movement working, hit pad. This is terrific stuff from Lakmal. He is getting the ball to talk and now Sri Lanka are into the middle-order. Rahane is not moving his feet and as soon as the ball nips back the LBW looks close. The umpire's finger goes up which prompts a review hoping it is going over but the ball is clipping the bails. Out.

  • 52.5

    OUT! Caught. Shami to Dickwella. Back of a length, middle stump on the back foot defending, outside edge to slips, by Kohli. Got him this time. Shami deserved that after some good balls that have beat the bat. Healthy edge towards the slips and the captain gobbles up the catch.

  • 52.2

    OUT! Caught. Lakmal to Pujara. Short, outside off stump no foot movement Fended, thick edge in the air uncontrolled to gully, by Perera. Terrific nut from Lakmal. Out of the blue he has found a little extra pace and bounce which troubles Pujara. Comes off the handle of the bat and loops in slow motion towards gully where Dilruwan has produced a wonderful diving catch.

  • 51.5

    OUT! Caught. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Perera to Saha. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot sweeping, top edge to slips, by Mathews. Up goes the finger, Dilruwan is on fire. Saha was just looking to paddle this sweep fine but it loops up to Mathews at slip via a thin top edge and the forearm. Saha asked for the review but that couldn't save him, Sri Lanka back on top.

  • 51.2

    OUT! L.B.W. NOT OUT changed by umpire to OUT after REFERRAL. Perera to Jadeja. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, bat-pad. Huge appeal, was that bat or pad first? The umpire thinks bat so not out is his decision, but Sri Lanka have a review in the bank and decide to use it. Replays show it was clearly pad first, and ball tracking has it smashing into middle and leg so this will be overturned. Excellent review and a great time to get a wicket.

  • 49.1

    That is 200 for India off 297 balls.

  • 44.2

    OUT! Bowled. Lakmal to Rahul. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, missed. Straight through the gap and the stumps are sent flying, another missed opportunity for a century. Nice delivery from Lakmal targeting the stumps and letting the pitch do all the work.

  • 43.5

    That is 100 for India off 263 balls.

  • 40.6

    APPEAL! Lakmal to Pujara. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to gully for no runs, fielded by Perera, appeal made for L.B.W. Nip back but too high. Sri Lanka have no reviews left either so whatever decision is made they have to go with it.

  • 40.1

    APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. Yadav to Dickwella. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, hit body to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Saha, appeal made for Caught More drama in Kolkata, it's all happening in this spell. Dickwella gets given out but instantly reviews the decision to save himself. Initially it seemed as though this bouncer looped off the glove through to Saha but on seeing the replays it actually hit his shoulder.

  • 39.6

    APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Gamage to Saha. Seaming in back of a length, outside off stump no foot movement defending, hit pad to third man for no runs, fielded by Samarawickrama, appeal made for L.B.W. Huge appeal, that looks pretty close as Gamage gets more nip from the deck. Height is the issue though and Chandimal is made to regret asking for the review.

  • 38.5

    OUT! Caught. Yadav to Mathews. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to short extra cover, by Rahul. Another wicket as Eden Gardens roars into life, India are right back in this after Yadav's double-strike. It is a bit of a gift though, Mathews looks bitterly disappointed as this is a tame way to depart. He goes deep in the crease but then looks to come forward and drive without transferring his weight, so the ball loops to short cover who takes it with glee.

  • 37.2

    OUT! Bowled. Gamage to Pujara. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, missed. What a beauty, Gamage produces a jaffa to rip Pujara's off stump from the ground. It has to be a quality delivery to beat Pujara's defences, this one jags back in substantially to roar between bat and pad before annihilating off stump. Sri Lanka are pumped up.

  • 37.1

    OUT! Caught. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Shanaka to Dhawan. Length ball, off stump down the track driving, inside edge to wicketkeeper, by Dickwella. Terrific innings from Shikhar Dhawan but unfortunately he can't make a century. He skipped down the track aiming towards the extra cover region but the bat has come down at an angle and brushed the ball. Wasted review from Dhawan.

  • 36.5

    That is 52 for Angelo Mathews off 88 balls.

  • 36.2

    OUT! Caught. Yadav to Thirimanne. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, outside edge to slips, by Kohli. This time the edge goes to hand, and Kohli makes no mistake diving to his left at second slip. Yadav has banged away back of a length and now finds a healthy edge to give India a much needed lift. Kohli throws the ball into the turf after catching it out of relief and frustration.

  • 33.6

    APPEAL! Herath to Pujara. Stock length ball, middle stump down the track defending, hit pad to point for no runs, fielded by Karunaratne, appeal made for L.B.W.

  • 33.5

    That is 52 for Cheteshwar Pujara off 108 balls.

  • 33.2

    That is 50 for Lahiru Thirimanne off 86 balls.

  • 25.6

    OUT! Caught. Shanaka to Ashwin. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to backward point, by Karunaratne. That's a real loose shot from Ashwin. Could be a result from being struck on the hand in the previous over. Goes searching for it outside off stump, and cannot keep his drive down. Chipped straight into the hands of backward point. The struggle continues for the hosts.

  • 25.5

    That is 50 for Shikhar Dhawan off 74 balls.

  • 25.1

    That is 100 for Sri Lanka off 151 balls.

  • 24.1

    That is 100 for India off 146 balls.

  • 21.2

    APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Perera to Dhawan. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot sweeping, Gloved for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Spot on from the umpire once again. The Sri Lankan's have not spotted the ball brushing the bottom of glove before hitting the pad. That is both of the reviews gone which could prove costly.

  • 19.4

    That is 50 for Lokesh Rahul off 66 balls.

  • 17.3

    Dropped Catch! Yadav to Thirimanne. In-swinging back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, outside edge to slips for no runs, dropped catch by Dhawan. Dropped at first slip, that was as simple as they come. Dhawan is the guilty man, putting down a regulation chance. Frustration for India, Kohli doesn't look impressed.

  • 17.2

    OUT! Caught. Shanaka to Rahane. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Dickwella. Just as it looked like a partnership was being built, Sri Lanka strike again. It is the third seamer, and part time bowler, Shanaka, who does the business. Hung outside the off stump, should really have been left alone without fuss, but Rahane cannot help himself. A wafty drive, a thin snick, and Dickwella gobbles it up behind the stumps. India in deep trouble.

  • 15.2

    APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Perera to Dhawan. Off break length ball, middle stump on the front foot working, hit pad to short leg for no runs, by Samarawickrama, appeal made for Caught Poor review from the Sri Lankans. Clear daylight between bat and ball and if they were hoping for LBW the delivery is going way down the legside.

  • 11.5

    OUT! L.B.W. NOT OUT changed by umpire to OUT after REFERRAL. Yadav to Mathews. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump no foot movement defending, hit pad. Big wicket for India. Yadav has skidded the ball through and struck Mathews on the crease. It looks as though it might be going down leg but India feel it's worth a review. They are completely correct as Hawk-Eye is showing the ball crashing into leg stump. Sri Lanka are in disarray at 22-4.

  • 11.2

    Dropped Catch! Gamage to Rahul. Half volley, outside off stump no foot movement pushing, well timed to mid off for no runs, dropped catch by Gamage, fielded by Chandimal.

  • 10.5

    APPEAL! Lakmal to Rahane. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump no foot movement defending, hit pad to gully for no runs, fielded by Shanaka, appeal made for L.B.W. Another big shout from Sri Lanka. Not as confident though, as they knew height was an issue. Inward movement off the seam again, and it hits him above the knee roll. Just clipping the top of the stumps according to HawkEye.

  • 10.1

    OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Lakmal to Kohli. Seaming in length ball, off stump on the front foot pushing, hit pad. Three for Lakmal! He gets the Indian captain without troubling the scorers. Kohli plants his front foot, pokes the bat out in front of his body, and the ball jags back past the inside edge to thump into his knee. Umpire was confident, and raised the finger. Review taken, and it backs up the onfield call. India don't lose their review though, as it was umpire's call on hitting the stumps. The visitors are on top in Kolkata.

  • 8.6

    APPEAL! Shanaka to Rahul. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump moves in front, hit pad for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Didn't do enough to warrant a review. It has not been the first time a batsman has mis-judged a leave but Rahul on this occasion has got way outside off stump.

  • 8.5

    APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Kumar to Mathews. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to cover for no runs, fielded by Kohli, appeal made for L.B.W. Huge appeal as Mathews gets into a tangle with this inswinger, but the umpire isn't interested. Kohli is animated as always and eventually asks for a review, but ball tracking says it would've barely clipped the bails.

  • 8.1

    OUT! Caught. Kumar to Thirimanne. Length ball, outside off stump moves in front pushing, outside edge to gully, by Rahane. Another Sri Lankan batsman come and gone. This was wide enough to leave but Thirimanne felt the adrenaline pumping after his previous driven four. Straight off the edge and into the grateful hands of Rahane at gully.

  • 6.4

    OUT! Caught. Kumar to Samarawickrama. Out-swinging back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Saha. Edged and gone, Samarawickrama was always keen to feel bat on ball and it proves detrimental in the end. Bhuvi just hangs this outside the off stump, inviting the batsman to poke at it which is exactly what happens. Saha gobbles it up and India have their second. This match is moving on quickly.

  • 6.2

    OUT! Bowled. Lakmal to Dhawan. Seaming in length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, inside edge. Lakmal you beauty! A second scalp for him, and he is still yet to concede a run. Dhawan attempts an expansive drive, which looks especially rash in these conditions. Tried to smack it through the covers on the up, and the ball nipped back in to take the inside edge, and demolish the stumps.

  • 4.5

    OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Kumar to Karunaratne. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot, hit pad. This time even a review can't save Karunaratne, that is absolutely plumb. Bhuvi continues to attack the stumps and the left-handed opener completely misjudges it to leave a straight one. The ball cannons into the pad and was only headed in one direction - to knock off stump out of the ground. India strike.

  • 3.3

    OUT! Bowled. Shami to Karunaratne. Back of a length, outside off stump moves in front pushing, inside edge. Another chop on. Sri Lanka are messing this up and the Indian captain can sense the nerves so begins to pump up the crowd. Dimuth was trying to get outside the line which meant he should have known where his off stump was and left the delivery.

  • 3.3

    APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. Shami to Karunaratne. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, hit pad for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Given him, an early strike for Shami is just what India needed. This angles back into the left-hander from around the wicket to trap him in front. Karunaratne isn't convinced though and asks for a review. He will be saved as well, the bounce of the new ball taking it over the top according to ball tracking. Sri Lanka just getting the rub of the green at the moment.

  • 0.6

    OUT! Bowled. Kumar to Samarawickrama. Back of a length, outside off stump no foot movement cutting, bottom edge. The worst possible start for Sri Lanka. Sadeera is gone in the first over, chopping back onto the stumps. The nerves have got slightly worse in the dressing room.

  • 0.5

    APPEAL! Kumar to Samarawickrama. Seaming in back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, hit pad to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Saha, appeal made for L.B.W. Shout from the Indians but not out says the umpire. Brushes the back pad so can't be caught and is too high to be given as LBW.

  • 0.1

    NEW BALL. OUT! Caught. Lakmal to Rahul. Seaming away back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Fended, Gloved to wicketkeeper, by Dickwella. What an incredible start! Lakmal is bang on with the line and length first up, Rahul cannot withdraw his defence in time, and the ball kisses the glove on the way through to the keeper. The green pitch assisting the seamers from ball one.
