Herath and Malinga twisted out to be the unlikely batting heroes as the islanders improved from a few early on jolts and had the visitors in problem by the end of the day by dismissing Gautam Gambhir (2), Rahul Dravid (18) and Sachin Tendulkar (8).Virender Sehwag (85), who played with his usual flamboyance, and VVS Laxman (18).

Lasith Malinga provided Sri Lanka with the early advance when he claimed the wicket of India opener Gambhir, who was attentive leg before wicket for two. Rahul Dravid was run out for 18 as he attempted an not possible second run, after having extra 66 runs in 72 balls for the second wicket with Virender Sehwag. Tendulkar, who made eight, tried to sweep a full delivery from Muralitharan but missed and was trapped leg before wicket as India were summary to 101 for three in 21 overs.
