Jayasuriya to Pietersen, 2 wides, KP moves a foot outside leg before Jayasuriya has even reached the crease, the canny old man fires one at his legs but the ball slips a little too far down the leg side

12.4

Jayasuriya to Bopara, 1 run, Bopara rotating the strike well here, again nudging to leg

12.5

Jayasuriya to Pietersen, OUT, a wicket for Sanath, and it's a big one! Again Pietersen had backed right to leg, but this time Jayasuriya speared a much quicker one right at middle stump. KP was looking to run it down to third man and simply missed the ball

Jayasuriya to Bopara, no run, well, Bopara is about two feet outside leg as Jayasuriya trundles to the crease, but steps across as the ball is bowled ... and misses the glance

17.2

Jayasuriya to Bopara, 2 runs, slapped out into the deep on the off side, they push hard for a second run and get home safely

17.4

Jayasuriya to Bopara, OUT, another wicket for Jayasuriya! He's defying age and infirmity here, darting one in at middle stump as, once again, Bopara gave himself acres of space moving to leg. Scratchy innings from him ...
