View dismissal MS Wade c †Sangakkara b Herath 49 107 74 3 0 66.21
24.1 can't keep Herath out for too long! Strikes with ball No.1, comes round the wicket, Wade makes room to cut but he ends up getting a thick outside edge, good reflexes nevertheless as he takes it in the second attempt. Good knock by Wade 123/4
View dismissal DA Warner c †Sangakkara b Maharoof 48 57 45 5 1 106.66
13.6 Sri Lanka will be mighty relieved at that because it's Warner! Things get a little tasty as Maharoof walks past the batsman, Maharoof angles it across the left-hander, the batsman gets a thick outside edge and it's well taken by Sanga falling to his left, Maharoof says something to Warner who gives him a stare, it all lasted a couple of seconds 75/1
View dismissal SR Watson* c Herath b Dilshan 19 32 18 1 1 105.55
20.4 Herath manages to hang on! Dilshan bowls round the wicket and flat, Watson is on his knee and slogs him, the ball travels quickly and flat and Herath runs to his right at deep midwicket, nearly over-runs the ball but manages to hang on on the dive, the ball could easily have bounced off his hands but he ensure he got his body behind it 115/2
View dismissal MEK Hussey run out (Dilshan) 1 8 3 0 0 33.33
21.6 Kulasekara to Wade, direct hit and he's gone! Excellent work by Dilshan there, Wade sliced it down towards short point and wasn't sure about the single, Hussey was off the blocks but Dilshan was too quick for him, picks up and throws flat at the stumps in one motion, just short of his ground and the third umpire takes a look 119/3
View dismissal DJ Hussey lbw b Maharoof 19 43 29 1 0 65.51
31.6 hits him a touch high but Asad Rauf's convinced! Maharoof gets it to nip back in off the pitch, the ball skids through and hits his thigh but Rauf was convinced with the height, took a few seconds before raising the finger 151/6
View dismissal PJ Forrest b Herath 3 10 7 0 0 42.85
26.4 Forrest looked quite flummoxed there! Herath got it to grip and Forrest was looking to drive towards mid-off but the ball spun just a bit and hit the off stump, Forrest playing down the wrong line 135/5
View dismissal DT Christian c Jayawardene b Maharoof 19 47 26 2 0 73.07
37.3 Maharoof strikes again! He continues bowling the slower ball, Christian chips down the track and has to check his shot, ends up spooning it straight to mid-off, Jayawardene takes it 177/7
View dismissal B Lee b Kulasekara 32 75 54 2 0 59.25
49.2 knocks off the leg bail! Kula bowls another yorker on the leg stump, Lee makes room to flay that anywhere but the ball hits his boot and shaves the leg stump 231/9
View dismissal CJ McKay c Maharoof b Herath 28 34 32 3 1 87.50
45.5 McKay perishes trying to go over the top on the on side, he gets on his knee for the slog and he ends up hitting it flat to Maharoof at deep midwicket, he falls forward and takes it 217/8

View dismissal NM Lyon c sub (SMSM Senanayake) b Kulasekara 0 1 1 0 0 0.00

7.3 and there is no escaping the dreaded finger this time around! Fuller ball on the off and middle line. Chandimal leans across and looks to flick it.

View dismissal CK Kapugedera c †Wade b McKay 7 35 18 0 0 38.88

38.5 Kula's cameo comes to an end! He makes room to mow Lee over the on side, Lee follows him and fires it full wide of the leg stump and he can only scoop it down to mid-on, easily taken at the edge of the ring 172/7
