View dismissal WU Tharanga c Bravo b Holder 7 18 14 1 0 50.00
3.6 good catch from li'l Bravo. Charles sighs in relief. Full and wide, Tharanga drives, fails to keep it down, and Bravo lunges to his right to claim this at cover. Holder is pumped 19/1
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene c Smith b Roach 7 21 12 1 0 58.33
4.1 85.0 mph, the bouncer. That has sconed Jayawardene. Gibson and Dwayne Bravo have enjoyed it too. But they are checking it for a no-ball. What a sharp short ball. Chest high it comes, Jayawardene wants to pull, gets a thick top edge into the helmet, and the ball ricochets to point. The umpire asks Jayawardene to wait. Bravo and Gibson run back in to check on the telly. Roach's foot has landed just a centimetre behind the line and then slipped away. Touch and go, but fine as far as the no-ball is concerned 19/2
KC Sangakkara not out 90 154 95 6 1 94.73
View dismissal LD Chandimal b Roach 2 9 8 0 0 25.00
6.2 87.3 mph, top of off. Timbah. Beauty. Jaffa. Poor shot, though. Pushes forward to a length ball and drives away from the body. The ball jags back in, beats the inside edge, and goes through the gate to hit the top of off. Looking at the replays. Chandimal's first instinct was to go back, and then he pressed forward. Not full committed 29/3
View dismissal HDRL Thirimanne b Samuels 23 78 73 0 0 31.50
25.5 63.7 mph, and Samuels strikes early again. The quicker one without warning. Thirimanne is looking to work this shortish delivery to leg, but it hurries off, and hits the inside edge and bursts through into the stumps 93/4
View dismissal AD Mathews* c Smith b Roach 30 29 27 2 2 111.11
34.1 84.1 mph, and gone first ball. Mathews has taken one risk too many. Mathews backs away a long way, Roach follows him with a length ball. Mathews tries to go over cover/point, but doesn't get enough bat, and is caught at point 139/5
View dismissal BMAJ Mendis c †Charles b Roach 8 3 5 2 0 160.00
34.6 86.3 mph, Roach has four, Mendis doesn't like it. He is moving across, ends up moving too far. Roach bowls short of a length, and on the stumps. Mendis has already got inside the line, and the ball passes over the stumps as he jabs at it. Roach appeals for the catch, umpire Llong upholds the appeal. Mendis suggests he hasn't gloved it. Replays are not clear. He might have missed it here 147/6
View dismissal KMDN Kulasekara c Bravo b Holder 14 20 9 1 1 155.55
39.1 83.8 mph, meanwhile Kula is gone. Holder follows the batsman who is backing away, and the little extra bounce means Kula has got too much under the ball and skied it. Bravo runs in from long-on, and to his left, and also calls for it, and avoids the converging fielder from long-off to take a safe catch 201/7
View dismissal SMSM Senanayake c Bravo b Pollard 7 9 6 0 0 116.66
40.6 79.4 mph, slower bouncer, Senanayake throws his bat it, gets another edge, and this time Bravo - wearing sunglasses, mind you - has enough time to come under it and catch it 219/8

View dismissal CH Gayle c Eranga b Mathews 14 22 17 3 0 82.35
4.4 76.2 mph, Mathews has struck. And it's that short third man that has taken the wicket. Short of a length, just outside off, he punches at it, gets s thick outside edge, and lobs it to the right of that short third man. Taken easily 25/1
View dismissal J Charles c & b Eranga 14 27 13 2 0 107.69
5.2 87.8 mph, lovely return catch. Charles wants to pull one from just outside off, but he is a little late into the shot, and ends up almost toe-ending it back. The ball is falling at Eranga's toe. If he had been at Wimbledon, this had got too low to be an easy volley, but he takes it off his toes with both hands. Not short enough to be pulled 29/2
View dismissal DS Smith lbw b Mathews 0 17 14 0 0 0.00
8.2 78.5 mph, given lbw. Not sure if this is a good decision. The ball seamed back in, so that is one criterion fulfilled, but it seemed to be a little too high and a little too straight. Waiting for the replays to prove me wrong. And yes, the replays have proven me wrong. Short of a length, pitches leg, seams back to hold its line, hits him high on the pad, but would have hit the top of the stumps 31/4
View dismissal MN Samuels c Jayawardene b Eranga 0 2 4 0 0 0.00
5.6 87.3 mph, Sri Lanka on fire. Lovely catch again. It's Jayawardene this time. Not a great shot. Short of a length, just outside off, with that extra bounce. Samuels plays a lazy back-foot drive. Had he gone hard, perhaps the edge would have cleared slip, but this one settles with Jayawardene high and to his left at first slip 29/3
View dismissal DM Bravo c Mendis b Mathews 70 135 84 4 1 83.33
37.2 78.6 mph, and this is done now. Bravo is frustrated and is teeing up for big hits every ball. Loses his shape as he slogs at this, and ends up slicing this shortish delivery to long-off. SL still in with a shout for a bonus point 176/8
View dismissal LMP Simmons c Thirimanne b Eranga 67 92 78 5 4 85.89
31.6 86.9 mph, the crowd has been stunned into silence. Simmons goes for that six but finds deep cover. Gets a half-volley, on off, drives inside-out, wants to clear the cover field but doesn't get enough bat on it. What a crucial strike for SL. The par score now becomes 166 154/5
View dismissal KA Pollard* c †Sangakkara b Malinga 0 4 4 0 0 0.00
32.4 86.1 mph, gone. What a beauty from Malinga. This is a special delivery. Short of a length, outside off, Pollard pushes at it away from the body, which moves and kicks away and takes the shoulder of the bat through to Sanga. Forget par scores now 154/6
View dismissal DJG Sammy c & b Malinga 3 21 9 0 0 33.33
36.3 85.9 mph, short of a length, Sammy still goes for the bog drive, the ball bounces and hits the sticker on the bat, and Malinga ends up skying it. Malinga runs towards midwicke to claim the catch 172/7

37.4 78.6 mph, slower ball, on target, and hits top of off. Offcutter from outside off, Holder tries to drive, plays down the wrong line, and is castled. Mathews is chuffed, and why wouldn't he be? 177/9
