    10.5 a direct hit has nailed Guptill! Williamson played the ball straight to point and called for the single. Guptill responded but hesitated a bit. Kapugedera was good enough to hit the stumps direct and catch Guptill a yard short. There was no run there and Williamson was unhappy with himself 101/1
    15.1 Williamson's been caught by Lakmal running in from deep midwicket. He made room by moving outside leg and clips the ball in the air, the timing was not right and that's a straightforward catch 131/2
    18.2 caught and bowled! Kulasekara sends down another clever slower ball on a good length outside off, Munro charged and played too early, he ended up popped it tamely back to the bowler 163/4
    16.1 Anderson tries to clear the straight boundary and fails! He cleared his front foot and swung hard, the googly spun away for him so he ended up slicing it to Siriwardana at long off 135/3

    9.3 that's the easiest catch you could hope to get! Gunathilaka tried to close the face of his bat and play through the leg side. The googly spun across him though and lobbed off the leading edge to Taylor at backward point. Too easy 84/5
    1.1 a huge appeal for caught behind! Did that carry to Ronchi? The umpires have asked for assistance from the TV umpire. So it has hit the bat. The soft signal is out from the umpire. The ball was wide down leg side and Dilshan reached a long way away from his body to try and glance it. There was a definite edge and Ronchi tumbled to his left to try and catch it. That has carried quite comfortably so Dilshan has to go. 10/1
    2.6 the captain has fallen! Chandimal lunged on the front foot and slogged at a good length ball, the bat turned in his hand and he sliced it high to Sodhi at mid on 27/2
    3.5 is that another catch down the leg side? It is! Boult has got two wickets with rather poor balls. It was full and down leg side, ripe for flicking, but Jayasuriya only managed to get an edge through to Ronchi 33/3
    4.6 they are falling in a heap here! Mathews jumped outside leg stump to hit inside out through the off side, he had to reach away from his body to drive and ended up hitting it flat to Elliott at cover, he had to bend low to take the catch but it was a simple one 42/4
    16.6 that is some catch from McClenaghan! Boult pitched the leg-breakish slower ball short of a length and Siriwardana pulled in the air towards deep midwicket. McClenaghan ran a long way from deep square leg and was going at a brisk speed when he slid to take the catch, superbly judged. Huge wicket. 153/7
    14.4 he's holed out off the full toss! Perera swung hard across the line, dragging the full toss from outside off stump to Guptill at long on, a simple catch and Sri Lanka's chase suffers another blow 133/6
    19.4 the blockhole delivery dug out to long on, Kapugedera has got to come back for the second, he has to try and keep the strike. But Guptill gets to the ball quickly from the boundary, he picks up cleanly and unleashes a flat and fast throw on the bounce to Ronchi who breaks the stumps with Kapugedera well short 174/9
    19.3 Boult's taken the catch at deep midwicket. That slower ball was 88kph and Kulasekara slogged across the line, he was beaten by the change of pace and giving Boult an easy catch under the circumstances 173/8
