View dismissal CH Gayle lbw b Lakmal 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
0.1 plumb lbw first ball! what a start for Sri Lanka and Pallekele. The big wicket of Chris Gayle, Lakmal sets off on a celebration, it was pitching on offstump and came in a touch, Gayle was looking to defend but misses, hit on the knee roll and Rauf raises the finger, it would have gone on to hit middle and off 0/1
View dismissal DS Smith lbw b Mendis 55 140 100 7 0 55.00
32.2 this time the umpire's finger goes up, Smith can't believe he has been given lbw, that was the carrom ball from Mendis, comes onto the batsman quickly and turns in, Smith was on the backfoot looking to defend, the ball pitched on off and hit Smith in front of middle, not sure why Smith thought he had been hard done by 115/2
View dismissal DM Bravo lbw b Fernando 68 195 117 10 0 58.11
43.1 given out lbw and Darren asks for a referral immediately. This could be interesting. Dilhara pitched it up and landed it just in line with leg stump and it straightened. You could see middle and off as Darren played around it and it thudded into his pads. Oxenford's finger went up in a flash, but Darren reckoned it was going down. Replays say he was wrong. That was taking out leg. West Indies have lost Darren Bravo, and with him, a referral 142/3
View dismissal S Chanderpaul c DPMD Jayawardene b Mendis 54 191 145 3 0 37.24
77.2 Super catch from that wonderful slip fielder Mahela Jayawardene. It was a lovely googly that turned and jumped ... Chanders was fatally attracted to it and followed the ball and ended up opening the bat-face and guiding it low but quickly to the left of Mahela who so quickly flung himself to catch the ball inches off the turf with his outstretched left hand. And he roars. He had dropped a simpler chance offered by Bravo yesterday. Redemption time. 241/4
View dismissal BP Nash c †HAPW Jayawardene b Herath 67 156 117 5 0 57.26
82.2 Gone, big wicket and it comes off a rather poor bal, but an astounding catch. Herath slips down the leg and the spin takes it further down. Nash set himself up for the sweep, but the fact that he was so far inside the line meant he bottom-edged it at the tail-end of his bat swing. Prasa was moving like a cat down the leg side and pouched it cleanly. Tremendous wicketkeeping and SL have an early look-in here at West Indies lower order 252/6
View dismissal DJ Bravo st †HAPW Jayawardene b Herath 0 6 7 0 0 0.00
78.4 Beauty! What a lovely combo from Rangana Herath and Prasanna! Awesome to watch. It was a flighted delivery that drifted in. Bravo went forward. The ball dipped sharply on him and Bravo stuttered out to push it to the on side, Against the turn. Mistake. The ball landed and turned away. Pras collected and broke the stumps quickly and gracefully. Gone! Mahela and Sanga rush to envelop Rangana with a big hug 242/5
View dismissal CS Baugh lbw b Herath 2 23 20 0 0 10.00
84.5 huge appeal, and he's been given lbw by Rauf. Baugh refers it immediately and I think he's being optimistic. Another orthodox left-arm spinner's delivery. Lands on a length on leg stump and Baugh goes for a sweep shot more in hope than anything. He misses and is struck flush in front of middle. The ball was breaking away, but not enough to miss off stump. Baugh is gone, West Indies are out of reviews. 253/7
View dismissal DJG Sammy* lbw b Herath 8 26 19 0 0 42.10
90.2 you can go far and wide, but I doubt you will ever see a plumber lbw than that. Sammy has kept playing back to the spinners without always picking the variations, so this was on the cards. This was the orthodox left-arm spinner again from Herath, landed on off and middle and zipped through straight. Once again, Sammy tries to shuffle onto middle and off and work it to the leg side against the spin. He was bound to miss one of them. This was crashing into middle. Sammy's miserable run with the bat continues. 274/8
