7.3

Dananjaya to Guptill, OUT, he's struck! And look at that joy on his face, he's beaming! Guptill came forward again and attacked the bowler, lofting down the ground and straight to the fielder on the long-off boundary, Thisara Perea took a straightforward catch

Dananjaya to Nicol, OUT, he has his second wicket! Nicol attempted to clear the deep midwicket boundary by trying to slog sweep but got a top edge, hitting the ball high in the air and not far enough. Thirimanne settled under the catch

17.2

Kulasekara to Taylor, OUT, bowled him with the slower ball! Taylor had finished swinging across the line by the time the ball reached him. He was on the front foot and played much too early, Kulasekara hit leg stump. That slower ball was out of the back of the hand

LRPL Taylor b Kulasekara 23 (26m 15b 2x4 0x6) SR: 153.33

Kulasekara to Williamson, 1 run, OUT, in the blockhole outside off stump, Williamson drives the ball towards deep point but gets run out while attempting a desperate second. Sangakkara had plenty of time to remove the bails
