    1.5 what a catch! Kulasekara's fine run continues. Finch moved across his stumps and tried to hit that through the leg side, but got a thick leading edge and Kushal Perera at short cover dived well in the air to his right to take a super catch. 8/1
    6.3 direct hit, and out! Marsh was clearly rattled there, and desperate to get off strike. Lenght outside off stump, Marsh defended that and took off, and the ball dribbled towards Dilshan, who swooped in and underarmed the throw, to beat Marsh back to the crease 31/2
    8.6 Bailey pinpoints Dilshan with an open-faced drive. Poor stroke you've got to say. Fullish wide delivery, drilled straight to the fielder, who gobbles it at waist height. 53/3

    7.3 gone! And Perera's promising innings ends. Length ball spinning away and bouncing outside off stump. Perera rocked back to cut it, and gets a top edge to Wade, who pouches a decent deflection. Good innings from Perera though, while Dilshan struggled. 53/2
    6.2 marvelous catch from Laughlin! What a take. Dilshan runs down the pitch, and Doherty turns it away enough to take the outside edge. Laughlin is running back from point and the ball seemed to be landing safely, but he puts in a terrific dive and snaffles it. 46/1
    10.5 bowled! That's a wicket Australia really needed. Mahela is done in by the dip there. Tried to turn it to the on side, but it's full and it sneaks under the bat to hit the pad, and then take off stump. 69/4
    9.1 down the track, and he holes out trying to clear the short, straight fence. Didn't quite get to the pitch of the ball there, and mistimed it off the toe end. Cutting takes it securely above his head and Sri Lanka need someone to stand up here, or they will throw away another good start. 61/3

    15.2 backs away and picks out backward with an aerial square drive. It was fullish and on the stumps, Thirimanne gets that on the outside of his bat and it flies to Voges, who takes a sharp chance above his head. Australia still very much in this. Another wicket could spark a panic. 104/5
