10.1

McKay to Silva, 1 run, ooh, a close attempted run-out, Silva nudged it to midwicket and took off quickly, which was a brave thing to do as the fielder was Mike Hussey, who threw down the stumps at the bowler's end with Silva safely in his ground

Sri Lanka 40/3   LPC Silva 10* (14b 1x4)
11.2

Watson to Silva, no run, probing length outside off, as Watson tries to allow the ball to swing, Silva drives to mid-off

Watson to Silva, no run, on off stump and Silva blocks it back down the pitch

11.5

Watson to Silva, no run, wrong line down leg, Silva flicks it to square leg and can't get a run - he'll be disappointed with that

11.6

Watson to Silva, no run, is that out! No, it's bounced just short. That was a good, fullish outswinger that tempted Silva into a full-blooded drive that sailed in the air to point, Steven Smith takes it low to the ground but immediately signals to the umpires that the ball bounced short of him

Sri Lanka 45/3   LPC Silva 10* (19b 1x4)

Watson to Silva, no run, clipped to midwicket and Silva wants a run, Ferguson is quickly on to that to deny him

15.4

Watson to Silva, 1 run, in the air and just safe! Silva has hooked but doesn't get hold of that at all, Ferguson at midwicket ran back and just couldn't get to it in time, not far off a catch chance

20.3

Doherty to Silva, no run, outside off, Silva prods to cover

20.5

Doherty to Silva, no run, drifting in at 91kph, straight-bat defence

20.6

Doherty to Silva, FOUR, wider of off and Silva latches on to that one, cuts hard behind point and finds the boundary, not the best ball Doherty has delivered

Doherty to Silva, no run, good drift in to the right-hander, who defends

24.2

Doherty to Silva, 1 leg bye, and again Silva tries the sweep from middle stump, it's a dangerous ploy and he hasn't got that off the bat, Doherty asks the question without any support and in fact that's not a bad appeal - struck the pad in front of middle, though height was an issue

Doherty to Silva, no run, soft hands from Silva, who nudges to point

24.5

Doherty to Silva, 1 run, slower from Doherty at 89kph, it's pushed to cover for a quick single
