View dismissal PA Jaques st †HAPW Jayawardene b Muralitharan 100 283 203 14 0 49.26
65.5 gone! Murali drags Jaques out of his crease with a well-disguised slower one, well wide of off stump, deceiving him in the flight and the momentary lapse of concentration bring Sri Lanka back late in the day! 216/3
View dismissal ML Hayden c Muralitharan b Vaas 43 97 63 5 0 68.25
22.2 first blood! Hayden walks down the track, looking to go over mid-off, but he's early into the shot and splices a leading-edge up over extra cover, and Murali, running backwards and to his right from mid-off, keeps his eyes on it takes a great catch away from his body out near wide long-off! Really, a good catch to dismiss what seemed a well-set Hayden 69/1
View dismissal RT Ponting* st †HAPW Jayawardene b Muralitharan 56 128 85 7 0 65.88
51.5 awesome piece of bowling, terrific stumping! The change of angle works immediately for Murali, as he tosses up a jaffa that and goes on past Ponting, beating him in the flight as he lunges forward, and Prasanna Jayawardene whips off the bails in a flash as Ponting fails to drag his back leg in! 183/2
View dismissal MEK Hussey c Atapattu b Fernando 133 354 249 13 2 53.41
135.1 gone! Hussey leans forward and drives a full delivery outside off uppishly into the covers and Atapattu, at short cover, cups his hands in front of his face and takes a hard, flat catch! Fernando finally gets a wicket and a solid partnership is snapped, but well played by Hussey 461/4

View dismissal MS Atapattu c Jaques b Johnson 51 273 183 5 0 27.86
61.3 thats the end of Atapattu! After pushing and prodding for ages, Atapattu decides to pull a short ball that bounces on him sharply, he's late into the shot and the ball goes nowhere, just bobbing up with the leading-edge for Jaques to hold a simple catch at square leg! End of a watchful innings and thats Johnson's second Test wicket as Sri Lanka slump to 153 for 6 153/6
View dismissal ST Jayasuriya c †Gilchrist b Lee 7 12 7 1 0 100.00
2.5 ohh! Jayasuriya's feet don't move much as he slashes at a wide delivery, there's no noise but the slip cordon goes up, though Gilchrist wasn't too vocal, and after a quick thought the umpire raises his finger ... replays didn't show any contact ... Jayasuriya stands his ground and walks off unamused ... a tough call ... Gilchrist didn't appeal for the catch, he just stuck up one hand 7/1
View dismissal MG Vandort c †Gilchrist b Lee 0 18 12 0 0 0.00
6.5 edged and gone! Lee pitches fractionally fuller, ever so fuller, and forces Vandort, again playing away from his body and pushing off the front foot, to give Gilchrist a regulation nick! Lee loves it, clicking his heels before his team-mates mob him 11/2
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* c †Gilchrist b Clark 14 49 35 2 0 40.00
18.5 edged and gone! Clark hits the deck on a great length, moving it expertly off the seam just that little bit and Jayawardene, poking at it tentatively, nicks through to Gilchrist 45/3
View dismissal TT Samaraweera c †Gilchrist b Johnson 13 55 28 2 0 46.42
29.2 and what a comeback delivery! Johnson follows up the rank full toss with one hitting the deck on a short length, nipping across Samaraweera with the angle and squaring him up, he has to play at it, and edges into Gilchrist's gloves! Johnson's first Test wicket and a good way to start your career, he's mobbed by his team-mates and looks thrilled 65/4
View dismissal LPC Silva c Clarke b Clark 40 60 45 6 0 88.88
41.5 all over for Silva! Ponting's decision to bring a man inside from the ropes at teh start of the over works to a charm, as Silva chases a short and wide delivery and slashes up and over gully, and Clarke back peddles a couple steps and holds a dolly at a sort of wide short third man 119/5
View dismissal HAPW Jayawardene lbw b Lee 37 165 104 5 0 35.57
79.3 got 'em, thats the Lee special! A nasty yorker, swinging back through the air late and hitting him on low on the front foot as he tries to defend across the stumps! Lee knows its out even as he turns to ask the question and Rudi Koerzten nods his head before raising the finger of fate! Sri Lanka are nine down as the well-set Prasanna goes for 37 198/9
View dismissal MF Maharoof b Symonds 21 53 54 3 0 38.88
75.1 bowled 'em! Symonds goes straight through Maharoof, pushing forward off the front foot and he's very late on the shot, as the ball shoots between bat and pad and knocks back the off bails! Symonds leaps in the air and the Gabba erupts 181/7
View dismissal WPUJC Vaas b MacGill 8 15 15 2 0 53.33
78.6 beauty! Classical legspinner's dismissal to the left-hander as MacGill serves it up full, with great drift and turn, pitching outside off stump and curling back past Vaas' forward defense to crash into the stumps! Completely beat him with deadly flight and turn 198/8
View dismissal CRD Fernando c Johnson b Lee 7 15 10 0 0 70.00

View dismissal MS Atapattu c †Gilchrist b Symonds 16 63 42 1 1 38.09
13.3 and there's the breakthrough, as Atapattu chases a short delivery angling down leg stump only to get a touch of glove on it, and Gilchrist pulls off a good diving take down the stumps! Symonds loves that wicket and the change of bowling works for Australia once again 53/1
View dismissal ST Jayasuriya c Ponting b Lee 39 87 49 6 1 79.59
18.2 The change works. Big wicket. Jayasuriya falls. Very good catch from Ponting at second slip. It was a length delivery, just outside the off stump, Jayasuriya pushed at it, bat slightly away from the body as he didn't quite lean forward and edged it for Ponting to lunge to his right to take a sharp catch. Jayasuriya was looking very good out there but has to go now. Pity for the visitors. 65/2
View dismissal MG Vandort b MacGill 82 255 170 10 0 48.23
73.4 ripper! Pitches well outside off stump and spins back a mile as Vandort gets a stride forward and tries to defend, a hint of drift does it for him as he plays down the wrong line and looks back to see his off stump pegged back! What a delivery to get your 200th Test wicket, take a bow, Stuart MacGill 213/4
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* c †Gilchrist b Johnson 49 144 119 5 0 41.17
52.6 edged and gone! The extra pace and bounce does Jayawardene in, pushing at it neither back nor forward, just feeling for it and the faintest of edges is gladly snapped up by Gilchrist as Australia break a very good partnership! 167/3
View dismissal TT Samaraweera c Hussey b Johnson 20 65 65 2 0 30.76
74.3 sharp catch at gully! Johnson bowls short and wide, Samaraweera gets up and slaps that hard, just failing to keep it down, and Hussey intercepts a stinger, low and flying hard at him but he just stays low and cups it near his knees! That was firmly struck by Samaraweera but Hussey was too good, and Australia have a double-strike to swing the momentum back their way 215/5
View dismissal LPC Silva c Hussey b Lee 43 96 63 5 0 68.25
94.1 gone! Lee bowls it short of a length outside off stump and Silva plays it across the line, attempting to go leg-side with an odd sort of shot, neither a pull nor a short-arm jab, closing the face of the bat and gets a thick outside edge to Hussey at a well-placed deep wide third man! 281/8
View dismissal HAPW Jayawardene lbw b Clark 1 36 21 0 0 4.76
83.1 thats plumb! Clark strikes early, pitching straight on the stumps and moving it in ever so slightly off the seam to catch Prasanna defending forward, the bat gets down late and he's a sitting duck in front of about middle and leg 226/6
View dismissal MF Maharoof b Lee 18 34 29 4 0 62.06
90.5 bowled 'em! Great delivery to follow up three short short ones, pitching on a length on about middle and swinging away to clip Maharoof's off stump as he stands and plays down the wrong line, completely beaten for movement 259/7
