62.5

Muralitharan to Trescothick, OUT, gone this time! almost the same line and length but bit slower on this occasion, turning right across the left-hander, Trescothick pushes forward to defend and the edge is produced, done in by the length and the turn, Jayawardene at first slip goes low down to his left and takes it inches away from the ground

ME Trescothick c Jayawardene b Muralitharan 106 (251m 180b 17x4 1x6) SR: 58.88
