Malinga to Jayawardene, 2 runs, he's done it again, but this time Pollard has hurt himself as he landed. Looks like a shoulder problem. Mahela cut the ball high over point and up Pollard went, his arm outstretched over his head to get fingertips on the ball and slow it down. The physio's out on the field taking a look. Pollard is now walking off the field clutching his shoulder, his right shoulder
