    8.5 quick fizzer angled across the off stump. Dickwella looks to flick it over midwicket. He can only lob a leading edge into the hands of Klinger at short third man 79/2
    0.6 Tharanga is rattled by pace. Nicked behind for a duck. Pace like fire, 146ks, swings away around off. Opens 'em up. Tharanga wafts and Paine gobbles up the edge 5/1
    10.4 Zampa produces another breakthrough. Hip-high ball, half-tracker, on off stump, Munaweera pulls it flat to midwicket. Head-high catch for Finch. Munaweera played a half-hearted shot. Should have given it a proper thump. Wristspinners having a good day in Melbourne 91/3
    17.1 Stumping chance. This looks tight. Sliding across off from around the stumps. Asela, stretching forward, attempts a reverse-sweep and misses. He loses his balance, and can't ground his bat in time. Good awareness from Paine. Maiden international wicket for Turner 151/4
    17.3 Two wickets in three balls for the debutant. Pushed through flatter and quicker, Siriwardana plays back and is pinned in front of leg stump. Was it heading down leg? I am sure this is missing the stumps. The umpire doesn't think so, and raises his finger. The tracker suggests it was heading down 152/5
