View dismissal WU Tharanga run out (Gunasekera/†Bagai) 19 56 31 1 0 61.29
11.5 from Baidwan, For the second time in two days, the first wicket is thanks to a horrible mix-up and Tharanga is gone. Back of a length outside off, and Tharanga guides it wide of mid off and sets off for a single. He is three-fourths of the way down the track when he notices that Dilshan is actually turning the other way. Tharanga almost completed one and a half runs, but fell short by a foot though he dived in. 63/1
View dismissal TM Dilshan c Davison b Rizwan Cheema 50 86 59 8 0 84.74
19.1 That's the end of Dilshan, holes out to deep cover, a short of length ball well outside off, Dilshan chases after that one and gets it only as far as the fielder in the deep, Dilshan falls for exactly 50 88/2
View dismissal KC Sangakkara*† c & b Davison 92 134 87 7 1 105.74
41.6 Sangakkara has not made a 100 since the 2008 Asia Cup. The wait continues. He pops a gentle return catch as Davison slows it up and gets it to turn a bit. Sanga did not get entirely forward, he was possibly trying to chip it in the air as he's done all day. He did, but could not clear the bowler. He knows he has missed an easy 100 today. It went off the bottom of the bat, he possibly should have come more forward to drive. 267/3
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene c Balaji Rao b Davison 100 115 81 9 1 123.45
43.6 Well, Mahela was tiring, it did seem he was going to throw caution to the winds once he reached 100. He gets across the line and looks to lap sweep over short fine leg. Makes good connection, but can't get it over the fielder. Ends up giving the fielder catching practice. Well played, Mahela. 276/4
View dismissal NLTC Perera run out (Surkari/†Bagai) 11 17 11 1 0 100.00
45.1 Khurram Chohan to Mathews, Thisara may be run out here. Full ball on off stump, Mathews digs it out straight to point and takes off. The throw was perfect, beside the stumps and left Bagai with little to do. Thisara was close to a foot out of his ground when the stumps were broken. Crucial wicket, I'd say. 284/5
View dismissal AD Mathews c & b Baidwan 21 25 16 3 0 131.25
48.4 Sixty years from now, the grandchildren in the Baidwan household will hear this story. Harvir has won a memorable mini-battle here. Angelo and he have sparred at each other, and he's stuck to his guns despite the heat in the air. This one was the slower ball, delivered back of driving length and sucking Mathews into the drive. He scoops it to the leg side high, and Harvir runs back to complete the catch by himself. And then he roars in joy! 314/7
View dismissal CK Kapugedera c sub (NR Kumar) b Baidwan 2 5 3 0 0 66.66
46.1 Kapu has perished. Seemed to not pick the change in pace as Baidwan delivered a full slow delivery on off stump. Kapu turned the face early as he looked to work it square, but the ball came through in the next era. He got a leading edge and it ballooned up for an easy take at cover 295/6

View dismissal R Gunasekera c Dilshan b Kulasekara 1 12 10 0 0 10.00
2.5 84.3 mph, Kula gets the second wicket, this might be an early finish at this rate, Gunasekara stay is over, plants his front foot forward and cracks that towards cover, a low catch clasped by the fielder who barely had to move, Canada have lost their openers 8/2
View dismissal JM Davison b Perera 0 4 1 0 0 0.00
1.1 88.7 mph, Perera starts with a beauty, Davison is gone for a first-baller, a short of length ball that moves in a touch, not sure whether there was an inside-edge on that, Davison looking to push the ball towards mid-off, the ball ends up crashing into the stumps, Perera is a wicket-taker, he was Sri Lanka's leading wicket-taker in one-dayers last year, first ball wicket in the World Cup for him 0/1
View dismissal ZE Surkari lbw b Perera 6 12 10 0 0 60.00
3.6 84.8 mph, Perera gets his second, Canada's collapsing here, a length ball that strikes Surkari on the pads in front of middle, that was going on to hit, no doubt about it, the umpire didn't have any, he raises the finger, and Canada are three down 12/3
View dismissal AS Hansra st †Sangakkara b Samaraweera 9 46 49 0 0 18.36
17.5 52.9 mph, Murali couldn't get a wicket, neither could Mendis or Dilshan, but Samaraweera ,their fourth choice spinner, can, he has Hansra out stumped as the batsman looking to force the ball through covers, he had dragged his back leg out of the crease, couldn't get it back in before Sanga took the bails off, Sanga was very confident that was out even before the third umpire was called for, sanada lose their fourth, it was the arm ball from Samaraweera that brought about the dismissal, he had started out as a specialist offpsinner remember 42/4
View dismissal A Bagai*† c †Sangakkara b Perera 22 58 47 2 0 46.80
21.3 83.8 mph, Murali has the doosra, but Thisara has the theesra. Fast length ball outside off, Bagai flashes at it without moving the feet. Thin edge, safely through to Sanga. 53/5
View dismissal Rizwan Cheema c Jayawardene b Muralitharan 37 65 35 4 2 105.71
31.3 52.6 mph, aha, you can hit Murali for a couple of sixes, but you can't get away from him can you? Murali foxes Cheema out with another doosra, Cheema did not pick it as it broke away from the like of off stump. Cheema was playing for off spin and looking to launch it straight, it took the outside edge and ended in short third man's hand 103/8
View dismissal TG Gordon c †Sangakkara b Kulasekara 4 16 10 0 0 40.00
24.3 this is dream bowling from Kula. Superb offcutter, landed on the seam and reared up like a monster as it moved away. Tyson was squared up big time there. In fact he became (Tyson)^2. Ended taking the outside edge as he desperately tried to get bat on it. Sanga gobbles it behind the stumps. 68/6
View dismissal Khurram Chohan c †Sangakkara b Kulasekara 4 11 8 1 0 50.00
26.2 84.9 mph, Kula delivers a surprisingly pacy bouncer and Chohan is taken aback as he shapes to pull in haste. That either took top edge or shoulder before ballooning up and Sanga pouched it as he tumbled forward. Cleanly taken, so the umpires are checking what that hit. Replays say it went off the glove, so Chohan is on the way back. He's a little confused, he seemed to suggest it hit the shoulder 74/7

33.2 52.9 mph, and that's that. Tossed up on middle and leg, Balaji sweeps again without any intention of keeping it down. Catching practice for the man at deep backward square leg. Baidwan hangs around, waiting for Osinde to come out. 111/9
View dismissal H Osinde b Mendis 4 14 10 0 0 40.00
36.5 56.9 mph, and that's the end of that, the crowd roars, at least the portion of the crowd that stayed behind, loads left realising what a one-sided encounter was in store, the batsman looks to swing that to the leg side, it was a googly, clips the off bail, Canada have folded for 122 122/10
