Last Wicket:

Over 50.0  

Over 49.4 AD Mathews bowls a good length delivery to IK Pathan, Pathan whips it off his pads superbly flat in the air over mid wicket for a Boundary! With that India win by 5 wickets with two balls to spare to lead the 5-match Series 2-1. This is the first time ever that Sri Lanka have failed to defend a 250 plus total at home!
Over 49.3 AD Mathews bowls it short of length to IK Pathan, beaten, no runs, Pathan charges down the track and then goes back for a pull but only to miss it outside off.
Over 49.2 AD Mathews bowls a good length delivery to SK Raina, 1 run, Raina charges down the track and smashes it past the bowler's left for a single.
Over 49.1 AD Mathews bangs it short onto the pitch to SK Raina, 2 runs, Raina makes room and pulls it down ferociously to deep mid wicket for a couple.
End of Over 49  
Over 48.6 SL Malinga bowls a yorker right into the blockhole to IK Pathan, no runs, Pathan drills it back to Malinga and the crowd think that was a caught and bowled. India need 6 runs to win from the final over.
Over 48.5 SL Malinga bowls a pitched up delivery to IK Pathan, 2 runs, Pathans square drives the near yorker past backward point and steals a second run.

Over 48.3 SL Malinga bowls a juicy half volley to IK Pathan, no runs, Pathan square drives the wide delivery sweetly to backward point.
Over 48.2 SL Malinga bowls a yorker right into the blockhole to SK Raina, 1 run, Raina digs it out to covers and sends back Pathan from a run. There is a direct throw at the bowling end and Pathan was safely in and India get a single because of the deflection off the stumps.
Over 48.1 SL Malinga bowls a yorker right into the blockhole to IK Pathan, 1 run, Pathan sensibly pushes it to covers for a single.

Over 47.3 NLTC Perera bowls a good length delivery to SK Raina, 1 run, Raina drags his drive off a slower one through squareleg for one.
Over 47.2 NLTC Perera slips in a full toss to SK Raina, 2 runs, this is a well disguised loopy slower one from Perera and Raian does well by making room and squeezing it to deep backward point for a couple.
Over 47.1 NLTC Perera bowls a pitched up delivery to IK Pathan, 1 run, Pathan flicks the slower one behind squareleg for one. Perera has replaced Mathews.
