Thushara to Ryder, OUT, Thushara strikes! that's the start they wanted - good length delivery and this one nipped back in sharply after pitching outside the off stump. Ryder never picked it up and was beaten comprehensively, loud appeal and up goes the finger.

Kulasekara to Guptill, OUT, edged and gone! short of a good length delivery, pitched in the channel outside the off stump and shaping away a touch - Guptill stands tall on the back-foot and drives hard, ball clips the outside edge and goes straight to Sangakkara behind the stumps
