40.3

Perera to Johnson, no run, full, slight swing, hit to mid-off

Muralitharan to Johnson, no run, flighted, slightly slower, 86.8ks, and beats the outside edge with the offbreak again

43.3

Muralitharan to Johnson, 1 run, dropped at first slip by Mahela. Johnson plays the reverse sweep that hardly goes anywhere, and Mahela dives to his left, gets there, but can't hold on to it. Good anticipation, but not executed perfectly
