2.2

Rampaul to Dilshan, 1 wide, that was too wide outside the off stump, went for the slash though

2.4

Rampaul to Jayawardene, 1 run, driven on the up and fast towards Pollard at backward point and he fumbled it, Jayawardene sneaks in a run

Rampaul to Dilshan, OUT, Rampaul's rewarded for a good over! He gets another ball to kick up off a good length, Dilshan was cramped for room as he tried to steer that away and it took the outside edge to the keeper

Sri Lanka 24/1   R Rampaul 2-0-12-1

4.1

Rampaul to Jayawardene, FOUR, slashed over backward point but quite safe, it was short and wide and he reached out and slashed it, third man couldn't come across

4.2

Rampaul to Jayawardene, FOUR, this was more convincing! Too straight and full on the pads and he nicely chips it over midwicket

4.3

Rampaul to Jayawardene, no run, a touch short and he times the punch well and finds backward point

4.4

Rampaul to Jayawardene, 1 run, bowls it short and wide again and Mahela cuts and beats cover point but there's sweeper cover to cut it off

4.5

Rampaul to Sangakkara, no run, lucky to get away with that Rampaul, straight and full on the pads and Sanga fails to whip it away, hit on the pads but outside the line

4.6

Rampaul to Sangakkara, 2 runs, shorter in length but on the pads and he clips it behind square, Edwards does the mopping near the boundary

Sri Lanka 43/1   R Rampaul 3-0-23-1

14.1

Rampaul to Sangakkara, FOUR, starts off with a juicy half volley from round the wicket, gets under the bounce and he lofts it crisply through the line to long-off

14.2

Rampaul to Sangakkara, FOUR, another "hit me" ball, drops it too short and he had the time to swivel and pull it cleanly down to deep square leg

14.3

Rampaul to Sangakkara, no run, stays back and punches it towards cover point

14.4

Rampaul to Sangakkara, 1 bye, slower ball outside the off stump and he swings and misses, the keeper fumbles

14.5

Rampaul to Jayawardene, FOUR, Jayawardene at his best! Back to his silent-killing best, makes room and cheekily dabs the ball past the keeper and down to third man, really dents a bowler's confidence

14.6

Rampaul to Jayawardene, FOUR, nearly finished it off! Pitched up outside off and he lofts crisply down to wide long-off, one bounce and four

Sri Lanka 128/1   R Rampaul 4-0-39-1
