12.1

Mpofu to BMAJ Mendis, no run, beats him with a shortish delivery that angles in, and gets another dot in

12.2

Mpofu to BMAJ Mendis, 1 run, fuller, outside off, gets the inside half of the bat for a single to long-on

12.4

Mpofu to BMAJ Mendis, 1 run, length ball, angling in, drops and runs, and completes a comfortable single

12.6

Mpofu to BMAJ Mendis, FOUR, full, on off, driven back at Mpofu, who gets a hand to it. The ball now travels much slower to long-on, but in the hurry to keep the batsmen down to one, both long-on and long-off misfield, and let it through for four. Vittori is the one who is done in by a wobble, and Utseya has overrun it. Gould is pretty amused as he signals four

Sri Lanka 96/3   BMAJ Mendis 7* (5b 1x4)
13.2

Cremer to BMAJ Mendis, no run, Mendis has no clue about this googly, and is beaten comprehensively. It just misses the off stick

Sri Lanka 107/3   BMAJ Mendis 16* (9b 3x4)
14.2

Chigumbura to BMAJ Mendis, SIX, full, on the pads, and he has flicked it for a flat six, and this is no mickey-mouse ground. Waller at deep square is well inside, and has been lobbed

14.3

Chigumbura to BMAJ Mendis, no run, tries the reverse-sweep off the quick man, gets some bat on it, but not enough to send it anywhere

14.4

Chigumbura to BMAJ Mendis, no run, slower ball, short, outside off, and he is beaten on the pull. Taylor does well to cover this ball bouncing well in front of him

14.5

Chigumbura to BMAJ Mendis, FOUR, poor poor bowling. Had Mendis not helped it along its way for four this would have been a big wide down the leg side

14.6

Chigumbura to BMAJ Mendis, 1 wide, this time he successfully bowls a wide outside leg

14.6

Chigumbura to BMAJ Mendis, 1 run, yorker, on off, digs it out for one

16.1

16.2

Jarvis to BMAJ Mendis, 1 run, full, on off, inside edge into the pad, and then through for a single to short third man

16.4

Jarvis to BMAJ Mendis, 4 byes, how unfortunate is that. Lovely yorker, on leg, beats his bat, seems to have hit a foot hole, and then deviated away for four byes

16.5

Jarvis to BMAJ Mendis, 1 run, misses the yorker, but errs on the fuller side, and concedes just a single to long-on

Sri Lanka 138/3   BMAJ Mendis 35* (22b 4x4 1x6)
17.2

Vitori to BMAJ Mendis, 1 run, down the wicket, surprised by a full toss, gets a single to long-off

17.5

Vitori to BMAJ Mendis, 1 no ball, slower ball gone wrong, and is a wide down the leg side. Also a high full toss. So called a no-ball as a beamer

17.5

Vitori to BMAJ Mendis, 1 run, gets away with a slower-ball full toss, as Mendis hits it straight to fine leg for one

Sri Lanka 148/3   BMAJ Mendis 37* (25b 4x4 1x6)
18.1

Jarvis to BMAJ Mendis, 5 leg byes, slower ball, beats him, but as they steal a leg-bye, Jarvis lets go a wild throw for four overthrows. There was no way he was getting Sanga out. Zimbabwe - I don't believe I am saying this - have been ordinary in the field

18.3

Jarvis to BMAJ Mendis, 2 runs, full, straight, driven to long-off for one. Oh wait. Another overthrow. This is ridiculous. Not a bad throw. Jarvis just fails to collect it

18.4

Jarvis to BMAJ Mendis, 2 runs, full, straight, flicked away, and midwicket dives over the ball, and they come back for another two

18.5

Jarvis to BMAJ Mendis, 1 run, low full toss, flicked away, and Ervine makes a lovely diving save at square leg

Sri Lanka 166/3   BMAJ Mendis 42* (29b 4x4 1x6)
19.2

Mpofu to BMAJ Mendis, 1 run, nice yorker as Mendis gives him the charge. Just the single conceded
