10.3

Cooper to Gunaratne, 1 run, full on the pads, flicked away for one

10.4

Cooper to Chandimal, no run, this is his quicker one, 125ks, and there is some action on this. It nips back in a touch and bounces more than expected. Goes between the bat and pad

10.5

Cooper to Chandimal, 1 run, back to bowling slow, he waits and waits before cutting this for a single

10.6

Cooper to Gunaratne, FOUR, by now the batsmen know that the slow balls are to expected and the quick ones variations. Gunaratne waits for this one, and it sits up for a hit over point

Cooper to Gunaratne, OUT, and the slower one gets him a wicket. The offcutter. Pitches on a length, outside off, beats the wild slog, pegs back the off stump

14.6

Cooper to Chandimal, no run, yorker on middle and leg, no room to do anything with it, keeps it out

Ruhuna 94/4   KK Cooper 3-0-12-1

16.1

Cooper to Chandimal, 1 run, swiped across the line, places it wide of deep square, but doesn't risk the second

16.5

Cooper to Chandimal, 1 run, slower short one again, Chandimal is early into it, but the bottom edge gets him to a fifty, an innings that has avoided what could have been absolute disaster

16.6

Cooper to Sampath, 1 run, tries an imitation of his brother's scoop, is late into it, ends up lobbing it in front of square. However, the leg-side 30-yard circle has only one man in, at short fine leg

Ruhuna 112/4   KK Cooper 4-0-18-1
