View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene c †Ronchi b McCullum 46 65 46 8 0 100.00
14.2 oh, what have you done, Mahela?! He's fallen on his own sword as he goes for a paddle sweep. The ball was not full enough and it was outside off stump as well. He should have pulled out of the stroke, but went through with it, and the ball runs off his face straight up in the air and Ronchi picks up the simplest of catches 91/1
View dismissal TM Dilshan c †Ronchi b McClenaghan 53 84 50 8 0 106.00
17.4 but this time he's nicked it! It was much fuller, so the drive was on, but McCleaghan got it to move just the right amount and just late enough to beat the middle of the bat and catch the edge. The bowler and keeper erupt 110/3
View dismissal KC Sangakkara b McCullum 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
14.4 oh my God, N Mac how do you keep doing this?! It was a good length ball on off stump. Sanga misread it and went for the pull, missed completely, almost comically as the ball stayed a little low and went under his bat. Just shaves the off stump and the bails are disturbed. The umpires are in discussion though. They want to make sure it wasn't the keeper's gloves that disturbed the bail. To me it looks like Sanga has to walk back and it is confirmed by the third umpire. 91/2
View dismissal HDRL Thirimanne c Latham b Mills 23 47 29 4 0 79.31
24.2 lobbed it to mid-off. It was a slower ball from Mills and Thirimanne was into his shot early. He's been driving quite well this innings, and maybe this was a little bit of over-confidence because that ball wasn't half-volley length. It hits him high on the bat and Tom Latham completes a relatively simple catch 144/5
View dismissal AD Mathews* c †Ronchi b McClenaghan 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
17.5 another one, same ball, same shot. Sri Lanka are faltering here. Excellent outswinger from McClenaghan again as Mathews goes for a loose waft outside his off stump. He should be a lot more tighter so early in the innings. The edge is taken and Ronchi takes a good low catch as the umpire relents to the appeal 110/4
View dismissal LD Chandimal lbw b Neesham 15 33 19 2 0 78.94
25.3 the umpire waited a long time to give that one. Chandimal has a little word with the umpire as he walks off. Neesham was very earnest in his appeal having angled this one on a fuller length - something he's been sparse with in this short spell - and makes the batsman play all around it. Impact was just below knee-roll on the front pad, no bat involved. Could just have clipped leg stump 146/6
View dismissal NLTC Perera c Latham b Ellis 8 20 14 0 0 57.14
28.4 slower ball dupes him. No feet there from Perera as Latham gets under it at point and the batsman has to go. Or does he? umpires are checking for the no ball. There was enough room for Perera's flay over the off side, but the lack of pace did him in as he gets a top edge. Third umpire confirms it's out after a smidge of his boot landed behind the line 165/7
View dismissal KMDN Kulasekara c Mills b Neesham 14 29 17 1 0 82.35
31.1 that goes straight up in the air and the first ball of the batting powerplay fetches a wicket. He kept it full and on middle and leg, Kula moves outside leg to slam this down the ground but he can't get enough bat on it as Mills runs around from mid-off to pick up the catch 184/8

View dismissal TWM Latham lbw b Senanayake 9 24 19 2 0 47.36
6.2 that one came on with the arm and Latham is struck on the front pad as he came forward to defend. The impact was below the knee-roll and despite the stride forward that full length ball would have crashed into middle. He did look a lot more comfortable off the back foot and Senanayake might just have seen that 17/2
View dismissal AP Devcich c Herath b Kulasekara 5 12 10 1 0 50.00
3.3 he wanted to clear the infield, but mid-on foils his plans. Herath gets into play again. It was a length ball and he was going for a flat-bat pull over the top. I think it hit him right on the bottom of the bat than he would have wanted hurting his timing 12/1
View dismissal RJ Nicol st †Sangakkara b Herath 1 29 12 0 0 8.33
10.1 oh, is that another wicket? Herath dupes Nicol in flight as he draws him out of his crease and Sanga does the rest. Third umpire confirms and Herath has two wickets in two overs. A miserable stay for Nicol comes to an end as he strays from the safety of his crease to meet the tossed up ball outside off and it turns away from him as well. 26/5
View dismissal GD Elliott b Herath 3 7 11 0 0 27.27
8.3 he strikes! wanted to cut the flatter ball just outside off stump but there just wasn't enough room on it. And that fact is proved when he inside edges the ball onto his stumps 21/3
View dismissal C Munro b Senanayake 1 4 4 0 0 25.00
9.1 strikes first ball back! It went on with the arm again and this was much quicker than his previous balls. Munro had no clue about that as he went back possibly just to defend, but as the ball came at him he tried to adjust, but wasn't good enough as the leg stump is knocked back 22/4
View dismissal L Ronchi c Senanayake b Herath 23 26 29 3 0 79.31
18.6 he;s gone now! and Jonty takes the catch. Let me clarify, Senanayake at point, whose nickname is Jonty, swoops in on the ball and dives fully forward to collect a great catch as Ronchi looked to guide the ball square off the stumps. And mercifully for my fingers, It is drinks 63/6
