India v Sri Lanka: over by over
India 292-6 (50 overs) beat Sri Lanka 109 all out (23 overs) by 183 runs

India produced a stunning performance in the field to thrash Sri Lanka in an overwhelmingly one-sided contest.

Marvan Atapattu, Jehan Mubarak, Mahela Jayawardene, Aravinda de Silva and Prabath Nissanka were all dismissed for ducks as Javagal Srinath and Ashish Nehra took four wickets apiece.

Earlier Sachin Tendulkar put on 153 for India's first wicket with Virender Sehwag (66) but fell three runs short of a century. His 97 took him past his own record for runs scored in a World Cup.

23rd over: Murali is dancing around the wicket to every delivery, much to the delight of the crowd. He fires another big four, this time past mid-wicket. A curious inside edge gives him a further boundary. But it ends when he is caught by Kaif off Nehra.
Sri Lanka 109 all out

22nd over: Muralitharan does just enough to keep out Srinath's attempted yorker in an entertaining final flourish. He then narrowly avoids being run out after some nonchalant running between the wickets.

21st over: Muralitharan gets an enormous thick edge over the wicket-keeper's head for four.

20th over: Dilhara Fernando smashes the ball through the cover fielders for four. He unleashes another the following ball to the square leg boundary rope.

19th over: A rising delivery from Nehra claims the second wicket of the over as Prabath Nissanka edges to Mohammad Kaif at third slip.
Sri Lanka 78-9

Sachin Tendulkar takes an excellent diving catch off Ashish Nehra's bowling to remove Chaminda Vaas.
Sri Lanka 78-8

18th over: The end is nigh for Sri Lanka as Zaheer traps Arnold plumb lbw.
Sri Lanka 75-7.

17th over: Arnold smashes the ball through the covers for four.

16th over: Vaas clips the ball off his toes for four and is then lucky to survive when a mishit shot lands safely in the deep.

15th over: Sangakkara is the next to go as he cuts a delivery from Nehra straight to Yuvraj. Sri Lanka 59-6.

14th over: Srinath gives nothing away again with a perfect maiden over.

13th over: Sangakkara sends a thick outside edge off Nehra to the boundary.

12th over: Arnold edges a delivery from Srinath just wide of the slips.

11th over: Just one run comes from the over as new bowler Nehra keeps Arnold tied down.

10th over: Srinath continues his fine bowling display with another tight over.

9th over: Arnold is the next man in but with the required rate well over a run a ball it seems an impossible task.

8th over: Sri Lanka's comeback hopes are dashed as captain Jayasuriya is caught by Kaif off Srinath for 12.
Sri Lanka 40-5.

7th over: Jayasuriya flicks the ball off his toes to the boundary as Zaheer gives up 11 from the over.

6th over: Jayasuriya almost throws away his wicket as he tries to hook Srinath and fails to connect.

5th over: Jayasuriya sets about repairing the damage with new batsman Sangakkara.

4th over: Srinath picks up his third wicket, trapping De Silva lbw as he shuffles in front of his stumps. Sri Lanka: 15-4

3rd over: Jayawardene, who has scored just 16 runs all tournament, survives one lbw appeal from Zaheer but not a second as he departs for a duck. Sri Lanka 3-3.

2nd over: Mubarak lasts just two balls before edging to Dravid off Srinath. Sri Lanka 2-2. Atapattu is caught by Kaif after slashing poorly at a wide delivery from Srinath.
Sri Lanka 2-1

1st over: Zaheer enjoys an excellent first over, twice beating the bat of Atapattu. A solitary wide is his only blip.


50th over: Harbhajan Singh escapes a Fernando run out opportunity as the Sri Lankan paceman closes out the innings. Harbhajan follows that with an unorthodox cut to the boundary.

49th over: Mongia gets his eye in in style, smacking Murali through extra cover for six. An attempted repeat lands into the hands of de Silva in the outfield.
India 277-6

48th over: Dilhara Fernando replaces Vaas and concedes only four runs, thanks in part to a sublime piece of fielding by Mahela Jayawardene.

47th over: Murali fumbles a perfect run out opportunity. As Rahul Dravid sets off for a very risky single, Jayasuriya whips the ball to Murali but he fails to gather it. He makes amends to bowl Kaif round his legs two balls later.
India 265-5

46th over: Vaas tears out Yuvraj Singh's leg stump with another quick delivery.
