Vettori to Jayawardene, OUT, tossed up and slower, the batsman comes forward to defend, but this one doesn't turn at all, it misses the inside edge and thuds on to the pads.. Vettori appeals, the umpire concurs..Mahela thinks about reviewing it for a second, but then walks away.. It would have been a waste to review it as that was a very good shout

Sri Lanka 33/3   DPMD Jayawardene 4 (8b)
