View dismissal WU Tharanga c Smith b Lee 6 32 18 0 0 33.33
6.4 89.4 mph, what a take! Tharanga cannot believe it, it was that short and wide delivery that he likes to take toll of, but it bounced a shade too much for his comfort, tand he cut it in the air past point, or thought he had, but Steve Smith there pulled off a stunner, timing his leap at full stretch to perfection, taking it one handed, he juggled with it somewhat before taking it cleanly in the end, that ball was really traveling like a bullet, if not a 'tracer' bullet 31/2
View dismissal TM Dilshan c White b Tait 4 7 4 1 0 100.00
1.4 92.7 mph, Tait has won this short but searing battle, Dilshan was on the crease, maybe expecting a bouncer, it was that bait again, moving away from a length outside off, Dilshan threw everything at it, and the edge flew at a comfortable height to White at second slip, Tait is pumped up, really is 6/1
KC Sangakkara*† not out 73 147 102 7 0 71.56
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene run out (Smith) 23 47 25 3 0 92.00
15.2 from Watson, Smith has run out Mahela, and that is a massive moment in this match. Mahela pushed the ball towards cover point and set off for the run. He saw Steve Smith, who took that stupendous catch, swooping on the ball and hesitated a fraction. Sangakkara had responded to the run so Mahela decided to go for it. Smith picked up cleanly and let loose a throw that clipped the top of the stumps at the bowler's end. Mahela was several inches short. Sangakkara had also hesitated a touch, and Mahela was looking at the fielder as he ran, which could have reduced his speed. Silence at the Premadasa. 75/3
