Dinda to Jayasuriya, OUT, finally they take a catch, and it's Ishant at third man who takes the catch. he should have had both openers out by now. But coming back, this is another bouncer, and Jayasuriya upper-cuts it, straight down the throwat of third man, where Ishant creates semi-drama and takes it inches off the ground

ST Jayasuriya c I Sharma b Dinda 26 (20b 5x4 0x6) SR: 130.00

Sri Lanka 43/1   TM Dilshan 13* (18b 2x4)   AB Dinda 0.2-0-0-1

RG Sharma to Dilshan, OUT, he's bowled him, Dilshan comes down the track, and is cramped for room and yorks himself too. Misses, and is bowled

TM Dilshan b RG Sharma 34 (33b 5x4 0x6) SR: 103.03

Sri Lanka 117/2   KC Sangakkara 52* (22b 6x4 2x6)   RG Sharma 1.3-0-12-1

13.3

Pathan to Jayawardene, OUT, looks for another late cut, this one is slower in the air, and he is early into the shot, is beaten and the ball shaves the off stump. MJ waits for the replay to just make sure, and is sent on his way

DPMD Jayawardene b Pathan 9 (6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 150.00
