    6.2 that one came on with the arm and Latham is struck on the front pad as he came forward to defend. The impact was below the knee-roll and despite the stride forward that full length ball would have crashed into middle. He did look a lot more comfortable off the back foot and Senanayake might just have seen that 17/2
    3.3 he wanted to clear the infield, but mid-on foils his plans. Herath gets into play again. It was a length ball and he was going for a flat-bat pull over the top. I think it hit him right on the bottom of the bat than he would have wanted hurting his timing 12/1
    10.1 oh, is that another wicket? Herath dupes Nicol in flight as he draws him out of his crease and Sanga does the rest. Third umpire confirms and Herath has two wickets in two overs. A miserable stay for Nicol comes to an end as he strays from the safety of his crease to meet the tossed up ball outside off and it turns away from him as well. 26/5
    8.3 he strikes! wanted to cut the flatter ball just outside off stump but there just wasn't enough room on it. And that fact is proved when he inside edges the ball onto his stumps 21/3
    9.1 strikes first ball back! It went on with the arm again and this was much quicker than his previous balls. Munro had no clue about that as he went back possibly just to defend, but as the ball came at him he tried to adjust, but wasn't good enough as the leg stump is knocked back 22/4
    18.6 he;s gone now! and Jonty takes the catch. Let me clarify, Senanayake at point, whose nickname is Jonty, swoops in on the ball and dives fully forward to collect a great catch as Ronchi looked to guide the ball square off the stumps. And mercifully for my fingers, It is drinks 63/6
