Sri Lanka 118/5   AD Mathews 11* (10b)

Rubel Hossain to Mathews, OUT, massive mix up. Mathews is lost somewhere near the non-strikers end. There might be a difficult word or two in the dressing room after this. Mathews drives it to midwicket and sets off straight away, calling Thisara through. But though Thisara responds in the affirmative and takes a few strides down the pitch, he suddenly decides against it and turns back. Only, by now, Mathews is almost at the non-striker's end. He is easily run out and leaves the field, shaking his head

AD Mathews run out 11 (23m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Sri Lanka 120/6   AD Mathews 11 (11b)
