View dismissal DA Warner run out (Mathews/Dilshan) 57 119 89 8 0 64.04
26.2 from Dilshan, a wicket from nowhere, a run-out just a minute before lunch, Warner gets forward and pushes the ball firmly towards short cover, he started out before realising that there wasn't time for a single, Hughes had already committed and was steaming down, Mathews had loads of time to lob the ball towards the non-striker's end, Warner has thrown it away 97/2
View dismissal EJM Cowan c Eranga b Welegedara 4 25 17 0 0 23.52
5.3 78.0 mph, Sri Lanka breakthrough! Cowan is gone looking to pull, he seemed to be a touch late playing that, hit high on the blade, and a top-edge as well, the ball swirls to mid-on, easy take there, fourth early dismissal for Cowan in the first innings in his five previous Tests 18/1
View dismissal PJ Hughes b Welegedara 86 220 166 8 1 51.80
58.1 84.2 mph, no century for Hughes, Welegedara has him bowled, short of length ball outside off, that came back a touch, there was a gap between bat and pad, an inside-edge and that ball crashes into the stumps, hang on, is that a no-ball? no, it isn't, just gets a bit of boot behind the line, Welegedara gets his third of the day 198/4
View dismissal SR Watson c DPMD Jayawardene b Welegedara 30 102 61 3 0 49.18
50.4 79.6 mph, what a ripper at second slip, sensational catch from the captain Mahela Jaywardene, just what Sri Lanka need on a tough day, Watson was looking to drive that one, got a healthy edge, Jayawardene flung himself to his right, long way to go to reach the ball, but he plucks that at full stretch, absolutely brilliant from Mahela 183/3
View dismissal MJ Clarke* c Sangakkara b Eranga 74 167 145 7 0 51.03
92.1 86.1 mph, big wicket here, the man in the middle of the purplest of patches has been dismissed early, Clarke nicks to first slip, short of length ball just outside off, seams away a touch, Clarke pokes at it as he moves forward, take the edge, Kumar Sangakkara snaffles it, just the start Sri Lanka wanted 304/5

9.3 85.6 mph, got the outside edge, Hilfenhaus usually get the ball to nip in to the left-hander, this moves away slightly with the angle, Karunaratne attempts a half-hearted defensive shot and nicks it through to the keeper 25/1

97.1 89.0 mph, at long last a wicket for Starc, the yorker does the trick, that lasered in towards the base of off stump, beats the bat which comes down a bit late, bowled 'im, Dilshan's long vigil is over, superb innings from him which kept Sri Lanka in the game, a relieved Starc kicks the ball towards the square leg umpire 289/6

14.4 87.0 mph, massive wicket here, Kumar Sangakkara is gone, full ball outside off, Sangakkara was sucked into the drive, and a thick outside edge to gully, Hussey doesn't put too many down, he latches on to this one, Sri Lanka 42/2, Siddle has struck 42/2
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* lbw b Watson 12 36 22 2 0 54.54
22.1 78.6 mph, Review after Mahela Jayawardene is given lbw. Has the golden arm of Watson struck again? there's no inside-edge, Mahela was struck on the knee roll in front of middle stump, the Eagle Eye predicts that would have hit leg stump, Sri Lanka in trouble, Jayawardene had moved across the stumps initially, then had to get his front foot back inside the line of the ball as he looked to defend, the ball angles past the bat to strike the pad 70/3
View dismissal TT Samaraweera c †Wade b Lyon 7 27 20 0 0 35.00
29.1 55.9 mph, the third of Sri Lanka's experienced trio in the middle over is gone! Lyon gets one to jump a bit extra outside off, it slides on straight as well, Samaraweera went for the cut, takes the top edge, deflects to Wade, who pouches that on the second attempt, Sri Lanka well and truly in the mire now. Stumps 87/4
View dismissal AD Mathews lbw b Siddle 75 239 186 11 0 40.32
85.5 83.4 mph, there's the breakthrough, Siddle gets this one to nip one and strike the pads, umpire agrees, but that's referred by Mathews, hit just above the knee roll on the front leg, hit in front of middle and off, that was going on to hit top of middle says the simulation, and Mathews is gone, Siddle gets a much-deserved reward for a sustained spell of tight bowling, Mathews had pointed to his thigh pad of his back leg when talking to Dilshan about whether to refer it or nor, but he was struck on the front pad as well 248/5
View dismissal HAPW Jayawardene lbw b Siddle 40 83 56 6 0 71.42
105.4 83.1 mph, referral, lbw turned down, Australia go for the DRS, that struck him low on the front pad, that pitched on off stump, struck him between middle and off and was going to crash just above the middle of middle stump, think the umpire though that hit bat first, it didn't, even Siddle wasn't sure whether to go for the review, the decision is overturned, Jayawardene's came ends at 40, 316/7
View dismissal KMDN Kulasekara c sub (JC Silk) b Lyon 23 50 42 1 2 54.76
108.4 53.6 mph, flighted by Lyon, Kulasekara wants to send this out of the ground, swipes it but not far enough, the substitute Jordan Silk is waiting for that on the rope, end of the Kulasekara's innings 336/9
View dismissal HMRKB Herath lbw b Siddle 0 8 3 0 0 0.00
107.1 78.6 mph, oh dear, the Herath show is over much too soon, and we didn't even get to see one of his classic strokes, and it ends with an absolute shocker of a decision from Tony Hill, massive inside-edge as Herath looked to defend that one, that too with the bat a long way from the pads, somehow the umpire missed that, and there are no reviews left, Siddle gets another 320/8
