After their dismissal, the game was disrupted following the unruly crowd behaviour. Indian skipper Dhoni, who was apparently upset, took his team off the field.
Soon after the game resumed, India’s part-time spinner Virender Sehwag dismissed Sri Lankan skipper Mahela Jayawardene for 28 runs. Mahela nicked the delivery that wicketkeeper Dhoni collected in the second attempt.
Sehwag got his second victim in Kumar Sangakkara who was the lone fighting batsman from the opposition camp. He slammed 47th ODI fifty, his sixth against India before Gambhir caught him at the long-on.
In-form batsman Thilina Kandamby’s outing was cut short by Yusuf Pathan who dismissed him as the fourth Sri Lankan wicket. Yusuf’s tweaker drifted back in and rapped Kandamby on his pads to see him back for 10 runs. He fell soon after Kumar Sangakkara fifty.
After Sangakkara’s wicket, wickets fell in heaps. While Angelo Mathews was dismissed by Yuvraj Singh, Chamara Kapugedera failed to read Pragyan Ojha’s straight delivery and went back for 16 runs
Irfan Pathan came back with his second spell and picked Farveez Maharoof and Murali off successive deliveries. Kulasekara then joined Dilhara Fernando to add 45 runs for the last wicket but the fightback came a bit too late.
With leading the series 4-0, what remains to be seen is can India make it a clean sweep on Sunday?
