Sri Lanka 18/1   CJ McKay 1-0-9-0

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
