View dismissal TM Dilshan c †NJ O'Brien b Rankin 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
0.2 got him! Rankin strikes! A good, straight bouncer which Dilshan tried to pull but top edged it to O'Brien's left, who jogged a few metres to swallow an easier skier. Massive wicket! 0/1
View dismissal ST Jayasuriya lbw b McCallan 27 50 27 5 0 100.00
11.4 gone! There's the breakthrough for Ireland, Jayasuriya goes for the sweep and is taken on the inside of the front pad...big appeal from McCallan and Tony Hill raises his finger. Jayasuriya isn't happy and that breaks an important stand 81/3

3.3 got him now! A brilliant catch by O'Brien standing up to the stumps, Sangakkara beaten by extra bounce and getting a thin edge to the keeper. And he walks! 14/2
