24.1

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

24.3

Doherty to Mendis, 1 wide, turns down leg and Haddin whips the bails off as Mendis threatens to lift his back leg - he's just kept the toe grounded. Erasmus asks for the replay and Mendis is safe, though he lifts his foot just after the bails come off. A tight one, in the end, though it looked innocuous at first

24.3

Doherty to Mendis, 1 run, worked away behind square leg

24.4

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

Doherty to Mendis, 1 run, on the back foot, Mendis punches through cover

Sri Lanka 90/5   XJ Doherty 4-0-17-0
