View dismissal MDKJ Perera c Warner b Faulkner 22 25 18 4 0 122.22
5.4 80.3 mph, Warner tears to his right from mid-on and takes a great diving catch. For a moment, it seemed mid-off would collide with the captain, but Wade probably backed out of the way seeing Warner dash in. This wasn't the cutter, good length on middle, stopped a bit on Kusal. He attempts a leg-side flick and spoons a leading edge in the air. A prowling Warner latches onto the chance after covering good ground. Dished out a full-stretch dive as well 44/2
View dismissal TM Dilshan c Warner b Hastings 1 8 3 0 0 33.33
1.2 79.2 mph, Hastings spoils Dilshan's party! He walks off for the last time in international cricket. He raises his bat to the crowd and bows down near the edge of the boundary. He blows a kiss to the crowd as well. #ThankyouDilshan. This was a nothing delivery - short and wide outside off. Dilshan again slashes his hands at a cut. He can only bottom-edge it behind to Warner at first slip. How ironical? Dilshan usually belts that away to the boundary. Warner stayed nice and low to gobble it up 9/1
View dismissal DM de Silva c Faulkner b Starc 62 82 50 5 0 124.00
19.4 90.1 mph, Starc in danger of going wicketless for the first time on the tour Full toss outside off, Dhana aims to pump it over the infield. He can only skew it off the bottom part of the bat. He got it over extra-cover, but mid-off tracked to his left and pouched it. Good catch from Faulkner 125/9
View dismissal LD Chandimal* c & b Faulkner 4 6 5 0 0 80.00
7.1 81.6 mph, Chandi feebly chips a return catch! Not the cutter, seam-up from Faulkner, Chandi shimmies out and attempts a leg-side shot. He only manages a leading edge back to the bowler. Faulkner moves to his right and snaps it up 51/3
View dismissal BKG Mendis lbw b Zampa 5 8 7 1 0 71.42
8.5 47.0 mph, Zampa roars an appeal for lbw, given by umpire Palliyaguruge. Did the pitch outside leg? Zampa held this back and found a bit of turn to rap the front pad as Mendis missed a sweep. The HawkEye shows that it pitched just outside leg 58/4
View dismissal CK Kapugedera c Warner b Zampa 7 15 12 0 0 58.33
12.3 59.8 mph, Warner in the thick of things in Colombo. This was the fast slider outside off, 96.2ks, shorter and outside off. Kapu wants to pull but ends up dragging the ball in the air. Waner throws himself to his left and completes a smart, low catch at midwicket 76/5
View dismissal NLTC Perera c Head b Zampa 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
12.5 Thisara now holes out, SL six down. Short legbreak on top of middle. Thisara takes it on with a pull. He has to settle with a miscue to deep square leg, where Head clings onto it. He exits for a duck 76/6
View dismissal SS Pathirana c & b Hastings 6 8 5 1 0 120.00
14.1 74.2 mph, SL seven down and sinking Hastings returns and strikes. Banged in short on off, cramps Pathirana for room, who was on the front foot. He gets into a tangle. Pulls and splices a return catch 86/7
View dismissal S Prasanna c Khawaja b Faulkner 7 17 11 0 0 63.63
17.6 83.2 mph, Prasanna holes out to long-on. Full on middle, in the slot for Prasanna to put it away. He swings for the hills and ends up getting more height rather than distance. Khawaja settles under the skier 114/8

View dismissal DA Warner* c NLTC Perera b Pathirana 25 48 24 3 0 104.16
9.3 57.4 mph, Warner sweeps it into the lap of backward square leg. More late cheer for Sri Lanka. Three wickets in the space of seven balls. Good length ball on middle with a hint of extra bounce, Warner drops to one knee and top-edges it to Thisara 98/3
View dismissal GJ Maxwell b Prasanna 66 41 29 7 4 227.58
8.3 48.8 mph, Chopped onto the middle stump. Prasanna sends Maxi off and shows him the way out. Maxi is quite peeved. Slower legbreak outside off, Maxi looks to cut it away. He plays a bit early and bottom-edges it onto the middle stump. End of another pulsating innings 93/1
View dismissal MC Henriques st †MDKJ Perera b Pathirana 1 6 3 0 0 33.33
9.1 52.8 mph, An appeal for stumping, Kusal missed it on the first attempted but grabbed it on the rebound and took the bails off. On-the-line stumping. Henriques' poor tour ends. He stepped out and simply yorked himself. He had a tiny escape route when Kusal fluffed it initially. But then he recovered from the bobble to remove Henriques 97/2
View dismissal JP Faulkner run out (Chandimal/†MDKJ Perera) 1 10 2 0 0 50.00
10.4 Prasanna to Wade, Sri Lanka have a sniff here? Faulkner has been caught short. Pushed through on middle, Wade works it in front of midwicket and sets off for a risky single. There wasn't a single there to be honest. Faulkner responds, but Chandi attacks the ball and spears a throw to Kusal who does the rest. Faulkner did not even bother to dive 99/4
View dismissal MS Wade c Chandimal b Dilshan 14 29 23 0 0 60.86
16.6 49.7 mph, Catch Dilshan if you can! He sets off again as the Premadasa raises itself to another roar. Sri Lanka have more hope. Wade shapes (pre-meditates) to reverse sweep from outside leg, he only flaps this full one into the hands of Chandimal at extra over. It was too full for the shot 120/6
View dismissal UT Khawaja lbw b Dilshan 6 16 15 0 0 40.00
14.6 Dilshan strikes in his farewell match and sets off on a celebratory run. That was plumb! Straight delivery on middle from round the stumps, Khawaja dropped down to one knee, but missed the sweep, and umpire Martinesz's finger went up almost immediately 113/5
