Off the final ball of the 30th over, Kumar Sangakkara provided India a big chance to end a threatening partnership. He skipped out to a delivery from Virender Sehwag and lofted it down the ground toward long-on. It should have been a catch but the fielder, Praveen Kumar, was a yard or two too inside and ended up running in too far. The ball flew over his head for six instead of settling in his palms. Had Praveen gone back and stayed where he was, instead of misjudging the height of the ball, Sangakkara would have been out on 39. Instead, he raced to a century that snapped his run of form.
