View dismissal L Ronchi c Jayasuriya b Vaas 26 27 4 0 96.29
10.6 not quite sure what he was attempting there? Length ball on off, Ronchi mistimes a drive that pops up straight to mid off, easy catch. 60/2
View dismissal SE Marsh c Jayawardene b Amerasinghe 25 36 3 0 69.44
9.4 fourth time lucky, Marsh chases a wide ball again and gets a healthy outside edge that carries easily to second slip who takes a good catch. 49/1
View dismissal LA Pomersbach c †Sangakkara b Amerasinghe 1 5 0 0 20.00
11.2 full well outside off, Pomersbach chases it and gets a faint edge, the keeper takes a good catch at head height 60/3
View dismissal DJ Hussey b Maharoof 23 22 4 0 104.54
21.4 length ball outside off, tries to push through the off side but gets an inside edge that crashes into leg stump. Foot movement was non-existent. 97/6
View dismissal CL White* lbw b Malinga 6 16 1 0 37.50
16.1 PLUMB...absolutely plumb. Full ball pitches on middle and straightens hitting White below the knee roll in front of middle, would have hit middle half way up. The ball did keep low but White was simply beaten for pace and swing there. 79/4
View dismissal PJ Hughes c Jayawardene b Malinga 2 5 0 0 40.00
16.6 length ball outside off, Hughes chases it and gets a thick edge to second where Jayawardene takes a great catch above his head 81/5
View dismissal CJ Ferguson c Jayawardene b Maharoof 8 26 0 0 30.76
25.2 length ball outside off, fends at it and gets a healthy nick straight to Jayawardene...catch number 3 for him I believe 101/7
View dismissal AA Noffke b Malinga 30 54 3 0 55.55
37.6 slower ball, pitched full on middle, hits the back pad before clattering into the stumps, a great change-up from Malinga. A good effort from Noffke to get the PM's XI to a respectable and, just possibly, a defendable total. 152/10
View dismissal BW Hilfenhaus c Kapugedera b Maharoof 5 8 1 0 62.50
27.5 length ball on off, may have been a slower ball, but Hilfenhaus pops up to cover, a very soft dismissal 115/8
View dismissal DE Bollinger b Kapugedera 11 27 0 0 40.74
36.6 length ball on off, gets between bat and pad as Bollinger is caught on the crease, takes the top of off. Good little cameo by big Dougie. 148/9

View dismissal WU Tharanga b Noffke 11 21 0 0 52.38
7.1 pitched on off and straightened, just takes the side of off stump after Tharanga leaves it...they must have put another coat of vanish on it last night, the bail thought about staying on but in the end just dropped off 29/1
View dismissal ST Jayasuriya c Ferguson b Bollinger 43 48 6 0 89.58
16.3 not quite full enough to drive, he skies it straight up to cover point, relatively straight forward catch there to Hughes. An important breakthrough but it looks to be too little too late. 85/2

View dismissal KC Sangakkara lbw b Hilfenhaus 1 3 0 0 33.33
17.5 fullish, pitching on off and cutting back into the lefty, hits him on the back pad right in front of middle as he plays forward, plumb and the umpire does not hesitate to fire him 93/3
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* c White b Hilfenhaus 1 4 0 0 25.00
19.6 great catch at first slip! Fullish on off, he fends at it and catches a thickish edge and White takes a good catch low to his right. 105/4
