    L Malinga to R Sharma, OUT! What a way to get run out! Rohit stays behind the line of the ball and pushes it towards the cover region. He calls for a single, Kapugedera rushes towards the ball to his right and has a shy at the non-striker's end. A direct hit is scored and Rohit seems to have lost his bat in the process of completing the run. The players appeal and the umpire goes upstairs. Replays show that the bat got stuck just before the crease and Sharma's front leg was in the air when the ball hit the stumps. A lazy effort from Rohit and he has no one else to blame. The replays also showed that Rohit didn't put his head down and run straight up, in fact he kept watching the ball in between which hampered his pace. The bat getting stuck was unfortunate though. Anyway, Sri Lanka have their first wicket!

Similarly, the mid on fielder also fails to stop it despite a dive and the batsmen think of a single. Finally the mid off fielder comes to the rescue as he stops it with his feet. Sharma is blinded there and both the batsmen are in the middle. They still manage to complete the single easily as the ball was a bit far from the fielder after the stop. Phew!
