Indian captain Dhoni made 15 run when he was caught. India suffered quick blows when Sachin Tendulkar was dismissed in the day's first over and century maker Virender Sehwag. Tendulkar thrown at Malinga's sixth delivery and had an easy catch to wicket-keeper Prasanna Jayawardene. Sachin is the world's leading run getter, making a record of 169th Test appearance, scored 41 in a third-wicket stand of 91 with Sehwag. Sehwag reached his 21st hundred in the second over Suraj Randiv for his 18th boundary.
