View dismissal WU Tharanga c Coventry b Cremer 69 138 97 5 0 71.13
35.3 Done in the flight. Tharanga went down the track but couldn't get to the pitch of the ball and ended up slicing it towards long-off. Coventry rushed in from the deep and lunged forward to take a good catch 181/4
View dismissal TM Dilshan* st †Taibu b Utseya 78 84 66 9 2 118.18
20.2 Stumped! Done in by the floater. Dilshan was down the track for the big shot but the ball drifted away and he ended up chasing it well away from his body and missed. Taibu did the rest 122/1
View dismissal LD Chandimal c Masakadza b Utseya 6 11 13 0 0 46.15
24.3 Utseya takes his second wicket. He floated it outside off and got it to straighten as well. Chandimal, who had cut a similar delivery for couple of runs earlier, went for the cut shot again. But this time the ball flew straight to backward point. Utseya wins this mini-battle. 134/2
View dismissal CK Kapugedera c & b Masakadza 12 16 16 0 0 75.00
29.3 now that's a celebration. Soft dismissal, Kapu doesn't quite get to the pitch of a length ball and chips an easy return catch to Masakadza, who throws the ball in the air, and then lifts his shirt to show his vest with "just married" inscribed on it 155/3
View dismissal TT Samaraweera run out (Chigumbura/†Taibu) 16 46 31 1 0 51.61
39.4 from Cremer, Samaraweera is run out and he storms off Oh what a dreary mess. It was pushed past non-striker and the straight midwicket fielder moves to his left to cut it off and fumbles. Samaraweera thinks there is a single there and rushes down the track. Thirimanne turns, sees Samaraweera run in but stays put at his end. Both end up together. And the throw goes to Taibu. Gone! 199/6
View dismissal BMAJ Mendis c Taylor b Cremer 7 10 8 1 0 87.50
37.5 It was a pretty short delivery actually if not a long hop. Mendis opened his stance and went for the pull but got more elevation than distance. Taylor moved in from deep midwicket to collect that 192/5
View dismissal HDRL Thirimanne c Taylor b Mpofu 15 32 21 0 0 71.42
44.5 Now Price and Mpofu do some stylish celebrations! It was a full delivery which has been square driven straight to point! Even as Mpofu cradles an imaginary baby, Taibu, who has just had a second child, envelops him with a hug. And Price joins in and he and Mpofu have a little dance - tapping each others' foot. 219/8
View dismissal NLTC Perera b Mpofu 8 18 16 0 0 50.00
44.2 Another celebration .. this time like Brazilian footballer Bebeto ... It was the full delivery, almost a yorker, which has taken out the middle stump. The batsman was looking for the big hit. Mpofu does a movement like Bebeto - as if he is cradling a child 218/7
S Randiv not out 9 20 9 1 0 100.00
View dismissal T Thushara c Taylor b Price 7 14 8 0 1 87.50
47.3 And then they were one. Price slowed up the pace and also gave it bit of air outside off.. Thushara went for the slog sweep and ended up dragging it to deep midwicket 235/9
View dismissal CRD Fernando run out (†Taibu) 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
47.5 from Price, Taibu you beauty! It was nudged to say squarish short leg ... Fernando stepped down the track for a single and was sent back. He hadn't gone down too long but Taibu was very quick. Very alert. He dashed off, picked the ball, had already removed his right glove, and under-armed a direct hit! 236/10
