24.4
Catch
OUT! Caught. Yadav to Malinga. Short, off stump on the back foot Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid on, fielded by Jadeja. Malinga holes out and India complete the bonus point victory that sees them ease into the final. There was plenty in this pitch for the bowlers and these two sides will be praying for a better pitch. Rain ruined the Indian innings but once they came out with the ball, Kumar used the movement superbly to put Sri Lanka out of the game early on. No Sri Lankan really got used to the pitch and in the end it was a pretty tame performance that resulted in a heavy defeat.
