Sri Lanka won by 20 runs

0.3

Johnson to Perera, OUT, another length ball on the leg stump, it hits the batsman as he is shuffling to play it towards the leg side, he gets hit in front of the leg stump, under the knee roll. The umpire takes some time and then raises his finger. KJP walks up to Dilshan to ask how that looked, but after a lengthy discussion, he is on his way.

MDKJ Perera lbw b Johnson 4 (2m 3b 1x4 0x6) SR: 133.33

Sri Lanka 8/1   TM Dilshan 0* (0b)   MG Johnson 0.3-0-4-1

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   TM Dilshan 8* (6b 1x4)   CJ McKay 1.2-0-9-1

22.2

Doherty to Dilshan, OUT, caught at slip! What a catch by Watson, diving to his right, he picked this one low and one-handed! Doherty has been bowling well to Dilshan, he floats this one on the middle and leg line and gets it to turn just a touch, enough to beat batsman's whippy drive to the on side. Dilshan got a leading edge and Watson did the rest completing an excellent catch

TM Dilshan c Watson b Doherty 34 (93m 58b 1x4 0x6) SR: 58.62

Sri Lanka 92/3   HDRL Thirimanne 42* (62b 4x4)   XJ Doherty 4.2-0-15-1

31.3

Johnson to Thirimanne, OUT, short delivery outside off and he has pulled it straight to the fielder at midwicket. He was done in by the pace, 143 kph on that one, and was not in control of that shot. Also, that didn't bounce as high as anyone would have expected it to, Thiri took it just below chest high. A big breakthrough although

HDRL Thirimanne c Watson b Johnson 57 (105m 86b 4x4 0x6) SR: 66.27

Sri Lanka 128/4   DPMD Jayawardene 20* (31b 2x4)   MG Johnson 4.3-0-11-2

36.6

Faulkner to Mathews, OUT, That is bowled! For a few seconds no one had any idea about what was going on! It was a full length delivery and the batsman tried to whip it to the leg side, but it flicked the off stump on its way. The bowler was busy appealing for something (maybe a caught behind as there was a sound).. But it took a while for everyone to realise that the bails were off

AD Mathews b Faulkner 12 (29m 20b 1x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

Sri Lanka 159/5   DPMD Jayawardene 36* (46b 4x4)   JP Faulkner 5-0-26-1

46.2

Johnson to Chandimal, OUT, caught at mid-on. Tries the big whack again, but it was a slower delivery and although it looked like he had made good connection, he hadn't. That went just high and not long at all. Easily gobbled

LD Chandimal c Hughes b Johnson 31 (38m 32b 1x4 1x6) SR: 96.87

Sri Lanka 224/6   DPMD Jayawardene 68* (70b 9x4)   MG Johnson 9.2-0-43-3

47.4

Faulkner to Kulasekara, 1 run, OUT, bowls a slower ball outside off, the batsman tries to pull it down the ground but doesn't get hold of it. It falls around mid-on and the batsmen try to steal a second, but a quick throw from the deep catches Kula well short of his crease

KMDN Kulasekara run out 6 (6m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 120.00

Sri Lanka 234/7   DPMD Jayawardene 71* (73b 9x4)   JP Faulkner 7.4-0-50-1

49.1

Faulkner to Jayawardene, OUT, Mahela makes room and drives it inside out, but this is straight to the man at extra cover. Mahela was not interested in the single, but Herath runs all the way down to the striker's end.. Simple run out, but doesn't really matter at this stage. Mahela is still on strike

HMRKB Herath run out 2 (8m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

Sri Lanka 244/8   DPMD Jayawardene 77* (77b 10x4)   JP Faulkner 8.1-0-51-1
