1.3

Mathews to Nicol, 1 run, Nicol stays on the back foot and pushes a length ball towards mid-off, they begin to run immediately and complete a quick single

1.4

Mathews to Guptill, no run, Guptill prods at a good length ball that shapes away a little and is beaten outside off stump

6.1

Mathews to Nicol, 1 run, a slower ball bowled full on the pads, played from the crease to deep midwicket

6.2

Mathews to Guptill, FOUR, short of a length outside off, Guptill slashes at it and gets a thick outside edge towards third man, Malinga is on the boundary and he runs to his right and misses the ball. The ball spun past him and he was clutching at air. Horribly dozy effort

6.3

Mathews to Guptill, 1 run, played on the off side

6.4

Mathews to Nicol, 2 runs, in the air towards deep square leg where Jeevan Mendis runs forward and to his right and dives to try and catch the ball, it falls just short and he does well to prevent the ball bouncing past him. Nicol had swept firmly

Mathews to Nicol, no run, Dilshan makes a sharp save at backward point

6.6

Mathews to Nicol, FOUR, full ball outside off stump, Nicol thumps it from his crease and he's hit it hard enough to beat the fielder at long off
