    0.6 Warner takes a brilliant one at backward point! That will lift Australia's sagging spirits, this was short and wide outside off, Mahela was on his toes to cut that, moved quickly to Warner's left and he threw himself to his left and took it with both hands, sharp reflexes 4/1
    9.3 strange old Dilshan innings comes to an end in a freakish manner, Johnson bowled it on a good length outside off, Dilshan was looking to shoulder arms but the ball straightened and took the outside edge to first slip, he wasn't offering a shot 33/2
    11.1 take that! Warner's seeing it like a foot ball! Johnson fires that on a good length and Thirimanne makes room and tries to bash that past point, Warner's reflexes are sharp, catches it with both hands, made that look easy 37/3

    11.2 Sri Lanka have lost two in two and the hosts are smiling again! Mathews gets a brute of a delivery from Johnson, it was short of a length and gaining on his body, he had barely enough time to make up his mend whether to duck or fend it off, took his eyes off the ball and the top edge lobbed tamely to Starc who ran across from short midwicket 37/4
    15.5 ....and Australia sneak in another! Strac bowls this full and wide and across the left-hander, Tharanga pushes at it away from the body, thick outside edge to Clarke who falls low to his left at first slip 63/5
    19.4 another throw away! Mahela sighs in the dressing room, this was on a good length and Jeevan shaped to pull in front of square, gets a top edge, slips and falls at the crease and McKay ensures he takes it at midwicket 71/6
