Franklin to Atapattu, OUT, gone! Short of a length delivery on the stumps, Atapattu goes on the backfoot and pulls it away, but can only find the man out in the deep!

Sri Lanka 44/4   KC Sangakkara 12* (13b 2x4)   JEC Franklin 4-0-23-3

Adams to Sangakkara, OUT, thats out! A good moving delivery slants past the left-hander, and Sangakkara drives loosely, getting a thin edge through to McGlashan, and Sri Lanka are now 55 for 5!

KC Sangakkara c †McGlashan b Adams 13 (23m 17b 2x4 0x6) SR: 76.47

Sri Lanka 51/5   TM Dilshan 1* (4b)   AR Adams 0.2-0-0-1

Adams to Silva, 1 run, OUT, run out! A fullish ball on middle and leg is tucked past square leg, the batsmen take one and decide on the second, but Fulton in the deep is quick and fires in the throw to McGlashan, and Silva is just too slow coming back, there really was no second run on offer, and indecision is the culprit

TM Dilshan run out 3 (15m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 30.00

Sri Lanka 58/6   LPC Silva 5* (7b)   AR Adams 1.3-0-4-1

Gillespie to Bandara, OUT, good catch! Banged in short and wide outside off stump, the width was there to go after the stroke, but all Bandara can do is hop up and cut that in the air to point, where Taylor times his jump to perfection and holds a good catch above his head

HMCM Bandara c Taylor b Gillespie 1 (4m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Sri Lanka 61/7   LPC Silva 7* (12b)   MR Gillespie 2.4-0-11-1

Adams to Silva, OUT, gone! Shortish delivery outside off stump, Silva decides to go for the pull, doesnt time it well, and ends up with a bottom-edge straight to the 'keeper
