2.2 Dickwella attempts the scoop and the ball balloons into the gloves of the keeper. It bounces more than Dickwella expected. He pre-meditates, going low, and attempting to dink it over his shoulder. The ball misses the bat, misses the glove, grazes the shoulder on its way to Paine 22/2
    0.5 Turner strikes in his first over. Arm ball on middle, no turn. Tharanga slogs it in the air and offers catching practice to debutant Richardson at deep midwicket. Just two fielders outside the ring and Tharanga picked out Richardson to perfection 5/1
    4.2 length ball on off, bursts off the deck and leaves Munaweera in a tangle. Chest-high ball, Munaweera throws his gloves in front of his face. The ball takes the glove and Paine grabs another smart catch to his right. SL four down for 40 40/4
    3.3 Third-ball wicket for Richardson on debut. His team-mates mess his hair up. Back of a length and outside off, skids through in the corridor. Mendis swishes a long way away from hid body and nicks it behind. The outside edge flies to the right of Paine. He stretches across and completes a fine catch 27/3
    not out
    4.3 Two wickets in two balls for Tye. Another batsman has been bounced out. Back of a length and jumps at Siriwardana, cramping him for room. He cuts tamely, and finds backward point 40/5
    12.3 Well-judged catch from Dunk running across to his right from mid-off and completing an overhead catch. Good length ball on middle and off, Kapu looks to loft it over the fielder. He does not time it well enough as the bat twists in his hands 92/6
    15.2 Holes out to Head at long leg running in and sliding on his knees. Throat-high short ball, seam-up, cramps Prasanna for room. He attempts another hook and falls this time with Head gulping down the top edge 119/7
    19.1 Kulasekara holes out. Has he crossed over to the other end? Knuckle ball, slow and outside off, Kula aims to go over cover. He only toe-ends it into the air. Klinger completes a fine overhead catch at extra-cover 160/8
    not out
