Yadav to Thirimanne, no run, length ball on middle and leg stump, blocked towards extra cover

9.5

Yadav to Thirimanne, no run, Thirimanne is struck on the pads, seemed to be sliding down, the ball rolls towards slips, Thirimanne was out of the crease so the fielder there shies at the stumps, Umesh was appealing for an lbw so he didn't see the throw and is hit on the back of his knee, for a moment it looked like we could have another injury, Umesh was clutching his knee but he seems to be okay

Sri Lanka 26/1   UT Yadav 5-2-16-0
