View dismissal WU Tharanga lbw b Utseya 43 99 56 6 0 76.78
20.2 lands it outside off and gets it to come in with the angle, he is a little lazy on the forward defense and hence fails to get his bat behind the line of the ball, he's hit in line with the offstump, another bowling change works and it's the captain himself 97/5
View dismissal ST Jayasuriya c Masakadza b Chigumbura 22 42 30 3 1 73.33
8.4 loose shot and Jayasuriya is very frustrated with himself, he chases a wide delivery swinging away and the ball clips the toe of his bat and travels to Masakadza at first slip who takes it over his head, terrible shot after hitting him for six 51/1
View dismissal KC Sangakkara lbw b Rainsford 4 18 16 0 0 25.00
13.4 the bowling change works! Absolutely plumb, it lands on a good length on middle and off and straightens, he shapes to whips it to the on side but the ball clips the flap of the back pad, very easy decision 73/2
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* c †Taibu b Rainsford 0 10 6 0 0 0.00
15.4 Jayawardene's miserable run against Zimbabwe continues, the ball lands just a shade outside off and forces him to play at it, he gets a thick outside edge and Taibu dives low to his right and pouches it comfortably 78/3
View dismissal CK Kapugedera lbw b Rainsford 4 9 7 1 0 57.14
17.5 It's a double-strike for Rainsford, he gets it to come back in off the pitch and Kapugedera gets a half stride forward to defend, he stands outside his crease but the ball does enough to hit him in line with the stumps, Enamul Haque Moni raises the finger 89/4
View dismissal J Mubarak c Williams b Price 31 84 62 3 0 50.00
41.2 Mubarak takes his chances soon after taking the Powerplay, he gives him the charge and scoops it high over mid-on but fails to get the desired elevation to clear the boundary and Williams takes it easily and falls to his right after taking the catch 166/6
