View dismissal NT Paranavitana c Taylor b Vettori 19 53 38 2 0 50.00
10.2 Vettori, the captain cum selector, has struck with his second ball. It landed around the off stump and sort of held its line, Paranavitana stabbed it gently to first slip. It turned in a touch but not much and Paranavitana pushed inside the line. Gone! Sanga strides out. 34/1
View dismissal TM Dilshan c & b O'Brien 29 101 58 1 0 50.00
23.2 Would you believe it folks? Dilshan, dropped by the bowler, sends another one his way! It was short in length and it sat up on Dilshan who tried to turn it to the on side but the ball held up, stopped a touch, on him on this slow track and he got a leading edge back to O'Brien who ever so slowly lunged forward to take the simple catch. Got to read the blogger later tonight. 75/2
View dismissal KC Sangakkara* c Oram b Vettori 50 115 96 9 0 52.08
40.4 No 300 for Dan! Congrats. Sangakkara loses out on the patience game. He had just hit a boundary but couldn't resist another big hit. It was flighted delivery, tempting him to go for another big hit from outside off, and Sanga took up the challenge. Down he went on his knee to play the big slog sweep but hit it straight to deep midwicket. He is the first left-arm spinner to take 300. 115/3
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene c †McCullum b O'Brien 92 312 234 8 0 39.31
99.5 and there is the wicket! O'Brien bowls one outside the off stump and in the corridor and gets it to move back in a touch as the ball kisses the outside edge and flies to the right of McCulum who does a very good job in taking the catch. Jayawardene ended up chasing it a bit. Jayawardene would be highly frustrated as he did not play a single false stroke through the innings. The first mistake he made leads to his downfall. That's how the game goes 295/4
View dismissal TT Samaraweera c †McCullum b Patel 143 377 240 17 1 59.58
129.2 Samaraweera has given Patel a free wicket. He went for the reverse sweep and ended up gloving a dolly to McCullum who took couple of steps to his left to take it. Fine innings from Samaraweera comes to an end. 415/9
View dismissal CK Kapugedera c Vettori b Patel 35 76 63 3 1 55.55
117.3 Kapu crashes his bat on the ground as he storms off in disgust. He ran down the track and tried to loft it over long-on but was beaten in the flight and ended up slicing it to Dan at mid-off. 367/5
View dismissal HAPW Jayawardene c O'Brien b Martin 17 22 18 3 0 94.44
122.5 The bouncer does the trick. Prasanna pulls it straight to O'Brien at long-leg. It was high bouncer and he had to fetch it from almost above head-high and couldn't control it in the end. 389/6
View dismissal KTGD Prasad c Taylor b Patel 6 13 12 1 0 50.00
125.1 Samaraweera stands alone as one by one his team-mates desert him. It was a simple enough delivery that did Dammika in. He went back and stabbed a delivery that didn't turn in much and edged it straight to first slip. 396/7
View dismissal HMRKB Herath lbw b Patel 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
125.2 Harper has given him after a long thought. Patel got this one to hurry in with the arm from round the stumps. Herath was on the back foot and missed the ball completely with his prod. He was struck high on the pad, which was right in front of the stumps, and after a careful consideration about the height, Harper says you got to go. Two in two for Patel! 396/8

2.1 close! pitches it on the middle stump and gets to straighten it a bit. McIntosh offers pad as the first line of defense. He expected the ball to move away and the bat was nowhere in sight. Ball clips the top of his back pad and would have certainly struck the off stump. Llong has no second thoughts in giving. Bishop meanwhile on TV thinks that it would missed the off stump 14/1
View dismissal MJ Guptill c Muralitharan b Thushara 35 70 44 7 0 79.54
15.4 We have a winner in that contest. Thushara wins. Guptill is gone. Another chest-high bouncer on the off stump, from round the stumps, Guptill top edged it straight to the man placed at deep square leg. Three down and Murali is yet to bowl. Danny Morrison is livid on air, calling it "Brainless cricket". The Andrew hilditch syndrome has hit I guess. The happy hooker is gone. 63/3
View dismissal DR Flynn c †HAPW Jayawardene b Thushara 13 33 24 3 0 54.16
9.2 Got him. No doubt this time. It was a lovely delivery that landed on a length just outside the off stump and held its line, inducing a fatal prod and Prasanna, probably the world's best keeper at the moment, lunges to his left to take the catch. 49/2
View dismissal LRPL Taylor c †HAPW Jayawardene b Herath 81 182 155 10 0 52.25
58.4 Herath strikes. Taylor falls after a fighting innings. It drifted in towards the off stump, sucked Taylor into a defensive waft but the ball spun away, kissed the edge and Prasanna takes it neatly 183/7
View dismissal JD Ryder c Paranavitana b Herath 23 92 73 2 0 31.50
40.4 gives it a lot of loop as Ryder comes forward in anticipation of defensive stroke and fails to read the loop. He manages to get an inside edge onto his pads and the ball flies right into the hands of the short-leg fielder Paranavitana 148/4

57.3 Finally, Murali gets his man. A struggling McCullum, who has been living on a edge, falls. It was the doosra from the leg and middle stump line, bouncing, and McCullum tried to adjust by opening the bat-face and play with the turn but it bounced more, got the edge and went straight to Mahela at first slip. Murali went round the stumps for this delivery and struck immediately 183/6
