27.1

Dilshan to Hussey, 1 run, overpitched, pushed to long-on for one

27.2

Dilshan to Marsh, 2 runs, edged, thick edge. It is just the in-between length that has him confused. Marsh looks to cut but it is not that short, and the edge is too thick for the keeper to take

27.4

Dilshan to Hussey, 1 run, goes deep into the crease, works it towards midwicket for one

27.6

Dilshan to Marsh, 1 run, slightly short, he is quick to rock back and cut

Australia 122/4   TM Dilshan 2-0-11-0

Dilshan to Hussey, no run, short, stays low, hit straight to midwicket

34.3

Dilshan to Hussey, 1 run, arm ball, nearly squeezes through his defence, the bat comes down just in time to get a thick inside edge. Arms go up in the air only to realise there is wood involved

34.5

Dilshan to Marsh, 1 run, cut away to sweeper-cover for a single
