Sri Lanka 10/0   TM Dilshan 4* (1b 1x4)   FH Edwards 0.1-0-4-0

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

Sri Lanka 36/1   DPMD Jayawardene 11* (10b 2x4)   R Rampaul 2.1-0-16-1

5.5

Edwards to Jayawardene, FOUR, exquisite timing! Good length outside off and he rides the pace on the ball to punch it effortlessly past the covers, didn't hit it too hard

Sri Lanka 52/1   DPMD Jayawardene 20* (18b 4x4)   FH Edwards 1.5-0-21-0

6.6

Narine to Sangakkara, FOUR, lovely shot! Especially against the spinner, stays back at the crease and punches it with the turn wide of midwicket, that's 1000 T20 international runs for Sangakkara

Sri Lanka 62/1   KC Sangakkara 15* (11b 2x4)   SP Narine 2-0-15-0

7.2

Sammy to Sangakkara, FOUR, at this rate they will canter home really quickly, friendly short delivery and he swivels and pulls it behind square, fine leg gave up the chase

Sri Lanka 67/1   KC Sangakkara 19* (12b 3x4)   DJG Sammy 0.2-0-5-0

8.4

Narine to Jayawardene, FOUR, that's a Mahela special! Premeditated reverse sweep, he knew there was no slip, played it fine to third man

Sri Lanka 73/1   DPMD Jayawardene 30* (28b 5x4)   SP Narine 2.4-0-19-0

9.4

Sammy to Jayawardene, FOUR, just short of the rope! It was bowled short and he swiveled at the crease and pulled in front of square, nearly carried over the deep midwicket rope

Sri Lanka 80/1   DPMD Jayawardene 36* (33b 6x4)   DJG Sammy 1.4-0-11-0

12.1

Russell to Jayawardene, FOUR, slightly streaky! Makes room to a length ball and lofts it just over mid-off's reach

Sri Lanka 91/1   DPMD Jayawardene 43* (40b 7x4)   AD Russell 0.1-0-4-0

12.5

Russell to Jayawardene, FOUR, it's Mahela's day today, once again he makes room to unsettle the bowler, carves it just over Gayle's reach at extra cover and it races away

Sri Lanka 97/1   DPMD Jayawardene 48* (43b 8x4)   AD Russell 0.5-0-10-0

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

Sri Lanka 115/1   KC Sangakkara 33* (29b 4x4)   R Rampaul 3.1-0-27-1

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

Sri Lanka 119/1   KC Sangakkara 37* (30b 5x4)   R Rampaul 3.2-0-31-1

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

Sri Lanka 124/1   DPMD Jayawardene 61* (48b 9x4 1x6)   R Rampaul 3.5-0-35-1

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
