17.5

Rizwan Cheema to Sangakkara, no run, dropped, a great effort by Nitish Kumar at backward point, dives across to his left after Sangakkara cracks one in his direction, gets his hands on it but can't latch on, the youngest player in the World Cup would have pulled off a stunner if that stuck

Sri Lanka 155/2   Rizwan Cheema 5-0-27-1
47.1

Rizwan Cheema to Mathews, 1 run, another offcutter, the ball is gripping on the track. I await Murali's turn on this track. Worked off the pads for one

47.2

Rizwan Cheema to Samaraweera, no run, oho, mix up from the batsmen, mix up from the fielders. Much ado about nothing. Steeres straight to point by Thilan, Angelo was almost all the way down before he realised Thilan wasn't coming. Cheema took a while gettng back to the bowler's end. He collected the throw, but could not break the stumps.

47.3

Rizwan Cheema to Samaraweera, 1 run, this time Thilan gets the single in front of square. Over to Angelo.

47.4

Rizwan Cheema to Mathews, 1 run, strange scenes. Angelo plays a lap sweep, almost straight to a comical tumbling Balaji at square leg, who doesn't pouch it, but propels the ball a good ten feet in the air as he lands and it pops out. How did he do that?

47.5

Rizwan Cheema to Samaraweera, FOUR, smarts from Samaraweera. Playing the pace of the ball, backing away and steering with finesse through third man. Shot of a man with a 50+ Test average.

47.6

Rizwan Cheema to Samaraweera, 1 run, and he gets a single to midwicket to retain strike

Sri Lanka 313/6   Rizwan Cheema 6-0-35-1
49.1

Rizwan Cheema to Kulasekara, 1 run, length ball on the pads, he stays on the crease and nudges it through midwicket for one

49.2

Rizwan Cheema to Samaraweera, FOUR, my my, Thilan is playing some exquisite non-slog overs shots here. Another delicate cut behind point, much squarer than last time, but he's timing them perfectly here. Waited for it to sit up and caressed it on top of the bounce.

49.3

Rizwan Cheema to Samaraweera, no run, smart, yorker, but well outside off and close to the tram-lines. He gets away with it

49.4

Rizwan Cheema to Samaraweera, 1 run, offcutter breaks back in appreciably, Thilan waits and opens the face to steer another single through the off side

49.5

Rizwan Cheema to Kulasekara, 2 runs, Kula makes room through the off side and carves it out to deep point where a fumble gives him an easy couple

49.6

Rizwan Cheema to Kulasekara, FOUR, Kula ends with a flourish, bashing a short length ball with cross-batted disdain over mid on. He timed that quite well, as the fielder at long on - running across and putting in a big dive - found out

Sri Lanka 332/7   Rizwan Cheema 7-0-47-1
