View dismissal WU Tharanga b Powell 8 25 24 1 0 33.33
5.5 he's gone! An early strike! There was just a little bit of movement and the batsman plays all around it, two stumps being knocked out of the ground in the process. Well, Powell deserved that one - he's been asking the questions and finally he has his answer 18/1
View dismissal ST Jayasuriya b Powell 115 183 101 10 4 113.86
38.4 a wide full toss, Jayasuriya drives with little footwork and drags the ball into his off stump. It was the shot of a tired man, but it cannot overshadow what has been a really excellent innings 218/3
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c †Ramdin b Bradshaw 7 14 10 1 0 70.00
8.4 just in the right zone and Sangakkara was squared up by that one and he offers the thinnest of edges, a size zero of a snick, through to the keeper. Again, West Indies deserve this wicket and there's much work for Sri Lanka's top order to be getting on with in these early stages 35/2
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* b Bravo 82 163 113 2 1 72.56
44.1 brilliant yorker straight up, removes the off stick and Jayawardene just smiles. There's not much celebration on the field, low key only, and that's the end of a fine innings from Jayawardene 251/4
View dismissal LPC Silva c Lara b Sarwan 23 32 31 0 0 74.19
46.4 oh dear, backed right away trying to make room and carved that one right up to Lara at wide mid-off. Selfless shot, though, really, trying to boost Sri Lanka late on 268/5

View dismissal CH Gayle c Fernando b Malinga 10 23 21 1 0 47.61
5.2 done by the slower ball. It was wide of off stump as well, so Gayle had to reach to drive, it went a long way up and Fernando, who was circling under the swirling ball as it descended from the heavens, held a good two-handed catch above his head two-thirds of the way towards the long-on boundary 20/1
View dismissal DJ Bravo b Vaas 21 40 24 3 0 87.50
8.3 Bravo is undone by the inswing which takes the ball past his defensive jab, flicks the top of his pad and onto the stumps 40/2
View dismissal S Chanderpaul b Malinga 76 151 110 1 5 69.09
41.2 good reply from Malinga, right up in the blockhole, Chanderpaul aiming to pull that one, playing right over it, and knocking out the off stump 173/8
View dismissal BC Lara* st †Sangakkara b Vaas 2 9 4 0 0 50.00
10.1 Lara falls! That's some quick work by Sangakkara, Lara dragging his back foot forward and his foot is in the air. The third umpire needed more than a second eye for that one, but he was clearly out, and Lara's on his way. Tidy work indeed from the keeper, standing up to Vaas. Boos ring out around the ground at that decision, but you can't argue with it 42/3
View dismissal RR Sarwan st †Sangakkara b Jayasuriya 44 91 68 1 1 64.70
34.2 Sarwan plays a pretty horrible cross-batted heave, misses and Sangakkara whips off the bails as Sarwan twists and jams his bat down. He doesn't make it in time, it's a second neat stumping by the keeper, and the third umpire presses the button after a cursory glance at the replay 134/4
View dismissal MN Samuels lbw b Muralitharan 3 7 5 0 0 60.00
35.6 that's straight, very straight, and the umpire needs no time to give that one out. Neither do all three armchair umpires in our office, who instantly trigger their fingers, too; well, it was plumber than a plum pudding that's had extra plums wodged in there 147/5
View dismissal DR Smith run out (Malinga/†Sangakkara) 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
36.4 from Jayasuriya, ah, a risky two to short third man, too risky. Malinga has a very good arm and that, allied to Sangakkara's fast hands, means the third umpire's finger is not long behind when the throw comes in to the striker's end 148/6
View dismissal D Ramdin c Vaas b Jayasuriya 2 6 5 0 0 40.00
38.1 Ramdin goes to sweep that one, it sails high and Vaas catches that one at deep midwicket, running in to cling on 158/7
IDR Bradshaw not out 6 25 17 0 0 35.29
View dismissal JE Taylor lbw b Muralitharan 13 10 9 2 0 144.44
43.4 pitched in-line and just did enough to go on to hit the stumps. All the team go up for that one, trying to Umpire Harper's decision much easier. He didn't really need their help, squinting through his yellow lenses to give that one 187/9
View dismissal DBL Powell b Jayasuriya 2 2 4 0 0 50.00
44.3 and that's it. Cleaned up by some tidy work and that's a comprehensive win for Sri Lanka 190/10
