    14.5 that's gone! Watson gets down on one knee looking for the slog-sweep, he's been hit in line and the ball was turning, but only a little, Bruce Oxenford says that's out, and it looked like a good decision at first glance 78/3
    1.1 got him! Perfect start for Kulasekara! He's got the ball to seam back in and Haddin's looking for an aggressive drive, it gets through the gate and rattles his stumps 3/1
    6.5 the pull shot brings Ponting undone! He hasn't got that one quite off the meat of the bat, it's a sort of toe-edge that flies high to deep midwicket, where Silva runs around to take the catch 32/2
    15.6 Murali, you beauty! Another big wicket as Clarke launches an aggressive pull, gets a top edge and Muralitharan at third man runs around to his left and takes the catch while falling towards the ground 80/4
    30.2 gone! White goes the old heave-ho over midwicket, doesn't connect and Kulasekara has crashed that into off stump 155/6
    22.3 Hussey's gone! Murali strikes! Hussey advances down the pitch and tries to loft it over mid-off, but there's a man in the outfield there and Mathews takes the catch. It was a strange, half-hearted sort of shot, Hussey needed to really go for that to clear the boundary and he seemed to check his shot 112/5
    34.5 ah, Randiv gets his man, Smith dances down the pitch and Randiv beats the bat with a quicker ball, Sangakkara has no trouble whipping the bails off with Smith way out of his ground 189/8
    34.3 oh, what wonderful fielding from Jayawardene! Johnson has crunched that to extra cover and Mahela does well to snap that up, and in a flash, throws quickly to the bowler, who whips the bails off with Johnson just short 189/7
    36.2 the ninth wicket is down - Hauritz went the slog over midwicket, as he had to do, and it's skied off the leading edge to long-on, where Perera takes the catch 199/9
    37.4 there's the win, and the series! Malinga bowls McKay with a slower yorker 210/10
