Swann to Jayawardene, 2 runs, tossed up and turning to leg, Jayawardene advances and gets just a tickle, short fine leg gives chase and just prevents four

Swann to Jayawardene, no run, tossed up and turned to midwicket on the front foot


Swann to Jayawardene, 1 run, dropped short on the leg side, they hustle through and Morgan's throw to the bowler's end is wayward


Swann to Sangakkara, 1 run, round the wicket to the left-hander, tossed up outside off and pushed to point, there's a moment's hesitation but the fielder doesn't take it cleanly

Swann to Jayawardene, FOUR, fabulous wrist work from Jaya, reversing the hands again and happy-slapping four to third man

DPMD Jayawardene c Morgan b Swann 42 (42m 38b 5x4 1x6) SR: 110.52


Swann to Sangakkara, OUT, tossed up outside off again, edged and caught behind! A thin nick and England have two huge breakthroughs in a couple of balls.
