    3.1 Kusal falls to a wild slog, a bit too late you may say, it was always on the cards, and he has been lucky to have survived this long, point settles under the high mishit to a length delivery 15/1
    9.2 sharp catch, it is AB at long on, Dilshan stepped out and had a go, got it off the inner part of the bat, it was still travelling though, and it took a jump from AB, he grabbed it, teetered for a moment but recovered comfortably well inside the rope 44/3
    4.4 no doubts about this one, and Tsotsobe is pumped up, Chandimal went to cut another bouncing delivery and the edge was healthy to the keeper this time, Tsotsobe has worked up some good pace this over 25/2
    not out
    13.4 now then, Angelo has moved across and pushed this length delivery tamely back to the bowler, as soft as they come 72/4
    13.5 what a game JP is having, Mendis sweeps first ball, flat in the air, and straight to Tahir at deep square leg 72/5
    16.6 Thirimanne tries to clear him, but there is no getting past AB at long off, takes the ball with a short jump, and even though he is close to the rope, his balance is so good there is no danger of him falling back on it 90/6
    17.5 Sri Lanka has sunk deeper, and there is little time left to make it ashore now, Thisara has had a go at a length delivery, and skied it to extra cover 91/7
    18.4 another one falls, Parnell bowls a slower length ball outside off, Senanayake moves across, looking for the ramp shot probably, tries to swat it away, and ends up edging it weakly to the keeper 95/8
    18.6 one more wicket, Malinga slices a high full toss to point, and Parnell can't stop smiling 95/9
    not out
