    7.3 short of length, and Tharanga, who played that lovely shot last ball, tries to repeat it, but plays it in the air straight to Rob Nicol's hands at point. He was finally looking settled but has been taken down by Southee again. 36/1

    22.4 round the stumps, length ball, comes in with the angle, Chandimal attempts it to drive it through the covers, leaves a wide enough gap between his bat and pad for an elephant to pass through, the ball hits the top of off. No celebration from the bowler, who could have had him out a few times today. 123/2

    25.2 short and outside off, Thirimanne attempts a nothing pull from way outside off, the ball takes a bottom edge and the keeper accepts the catch with glee. A nothing shot by the batsman, who probably wanted to finish the game in style 128/3
