Williamson to Thirimanne, no run, is that a catch gone down? Looked like it. There was a loud noise as the batsman went for cut, but the keeper was not able to hold on to it. Thick edge actually, harsh to call it a drop


Williamson to Thirimanne, 1 run


Williamson to Sangakkara, OUT, both men are at the same end! Horrible horrible mix up! Sanga pushed it towards the right of cover fielder and took a couple of steps down. Thirimanne took it as a cue for a run and ran all the way down...But Guptill dived and stopped the ball, Sanga stopped as a result, but Thiri ran all the way down. Gutpill didn't even stop the ball cleanly, but since the two batters were at the same end, he had ample time to throw it to the non-striker's end

HDRL Thirimanne run out 9 (23m 28b 1x4 0x6) SR: 32.14


Williamson to Sangakkara, FOUR, oh no! Sanga almost gave it away!He charged down the pitch to drive it over the infield, but didn't get hold of it, it just cleared the fielder at mid-on


Williamson to Sangakkara, FOUR, it's on the pads this time, now Sanga sweeps it fine past the short fine leg fielder


Williamson to Sangakkara, FOUR, charges down, this one is a clean shot! He didn't go hard on it, just chipped it easily over the bowler's head for a one-bounce four..

Sri Lanka 94/6   KS Williamson 2-0-16-0
