0.4

Johnson to Sangakkara, no run, short delivery outside off, the batsman gets up on his toes and taps it straight to point

Sri Lanka 9/1   KC Sangakkara 1* (2b)

1.1

McKay to Sangakkara, 1 wide, he bowls a length delivery that swings down the leg side, called a wide

1.1

McKay to Sangakkara, no run, pushes it fuller and on the middle stump line, Sanga gets solidly behind that and defends it back to the bowler

1.2

McKay to Sangakkara, no run, he beats the bat with a length delivery that goes away with the angle. Sanga plays inside the line

1.3

McKay to Sangakkara, no run, he leaves this one alone, in a strange manner though. Goes forward to play at it, but then takes the bat away from the line of the ball

1.4

McKay to Sangakkara, 1 run, length delivery on the middle stump, the batsman tucks it to fine leg for a single

Sri Lanka 11/1   KC Sangakkara 2* (6b)

2.2

Johnson to Sangakkara, no run, short of length delivery just outside off, the batsman drops his wrists and lets this one go through

2.3

Johnson to Sangakkara, no run, length delivery outside off, swinging a touch away. Sanga waits in the crease and opens the face to run it to point

2.4

Johnson to Sangakkara, 1 run, oh that could have been close at the non-striker's end! Would have been out! Sanga drove it to the left of mid-on and set off immediately, but he would have been short by some distance had Doherty hit the stumps

Sri Lanka 20/1   KC Sangakkara 3* (9b)

3.1

McKay to Sangakkara, no run, he keeps leaving these angled deliveries by bringing his bat down, then taking it away from the line of the ball. Looks like he is getting beaten, but he is not

3.2

McKay to Sangakkara, OUT, big big wicket this is! Sanga has driven a full and wide delivery straight into the hands of point. It's his bread and butter shot, and he would have backed himself to clear that fielder, but he didn't get much elevation as the fielder takes it just over his head

KC Sangakkara c Maxwell b McKay 3 (13m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 27.27

Sri Lanka 20/2   KC Sangakkara 3 (11b)
