    1.2 not quite so full, Carberry shuffles forward and slices hiiiiiiiigggghhh to third man... where Kulasekara plunges forward and hangs on! Carberry was trying to take Mathews on, hitting to leg and it left him a touch, no control on the shot 9/1

    16.4 another slower ball, this 73mph, and Hales swings leg side and misses. Malinga holds his nerve, four slower balls in a row and Hales eventually succumbs. The last went for four, expecting full pace, Hales set himself to go leg side but it was pace off again and did for Hales 139/6
    5.5 Bell attacks, skies into the off side... and Kusal slips in the covers before recovering to take the catch! This was a length ball, Malinga cut his fingers over it and Bell mistimed his shot almost perpendicular to the pitch... not the most convincing return in the shortest format for I Ron Man 45/2
    7.6 down the leg side, Root gets a tickle on it and Chandimal collects! Lakmal gets a wicket, not one for the hall of fame but they all count... the ball slipped off the face of the bat as he tried to whip through square 58/3
    11.3 low full toss outside off, Morgan reaches for it and chips it down the ground, long-off runs in and Lakmal takes a superb catch diving forward, that's a cracking catch. Very hard coming at the ball but that was a very smart piece of work, big wicket too 85/4
    15.3 full toss on the stumps, right in the slot, Buttler goes leg side but gets it right off the toe and Dilshan takes the catch at deep midwicket. Bad miscue from Buttler and a very bad ball to get out to 124/5

    18.3 another slower ball, Jordan tries to step back and play off side but is through too early on the stroke and gets a thick inside edge into his stumps. Jordan without too much of an idea against Malinga, he's finally decided to force the pace and has perished 158/7
    not out
