View dismissal L Vincent c Silva b Fernando 14 21 16 1 0 87.50
5.1 Low full toss - waist-high - on the off and middle, Vincent goes for a slash down the ground, ends up scooping it between mid-off and mid-on and both nearly collide but Chamara Silva takes the catch 25/2
View dismissal BB McCullum c Malinga b Fernando 10 16 12 0 0 83.33
3.6 Short and rising, McCullum pulls it straight to long leg. McCullum was dropped twice and Sri Lank have been third time lucky 22/1

View dismissal LRPL Taylor c †Sangakkara b Malinga 62 59 43 3 3 144.18
18.5 very full, very straight, Taylor opens the face of the bat and tries to run the ball down to third-man. All he manages is a simple catch straight into Sangakkara's hands. End of a cracking innings from Taylor 153/6
View dismissal SB Styris lbw b Jayasuriya 2 3 3 0 0 66.66
11.3 trapped in front. Full and on the middle and off stump, Styris shapes to play a reverse sweep, misses and that proves fatal. Hawk eye suggests it would have missed the off stump. 97/4
View dismissal CD McMillan run out (Silva/Malinga) 2 6 5 0 0 40.00
12.5 from Malinga, fuller and on the stumps, the ball is punched to cover, the batsman head off for a single, McMillan isn't too quick, the throw comes to the bowler, Malinga catches the ball and breaks the stumps. The decision is referred to the third umpire ... and gone! 102/5
JDP Oram not out 33 30 19 2 2 173.68
