    10.4 pitches outside off and moves away, Tharanga stays rooted to the crease and goes for the drive through the covers, he only manages a thick inside edge which shaves his offstump 40/3
    1.3 look at that stump roll.... Edwards lets out a screeching yorker on off stump and gets it to move away late, Udawatte is beaten for pace and movement and is too late in getting his bat down and he looks back to see his offstump go for a toss 2/1
    9.1 tame dismissal and Sangakkara's ordinary tour continues, Taylor pitches it up outside off and invites the drive, Sangakkara shapes to scoop it over backward point but doesn't get the desired elevation, Bravo takes it comfortably at waist height. Replays showed Taylor bowling from a yard behind the popping crease 38/2
    12.3 the top order capitulates....Bravo pitches it up outside off, Jayawardene gets down and goes for the square drive, he ends up playing it straight to Chanderpaul. Sangakkara too fell to in identical manner, both failed to get the elevation to clear the infield 41/4
    46.2 Bravo gets the breakthrough, Silva makes room and tries to carve this one over midwicket but can't beat Gayle 208/6
    14.5 pitches it on a good length on off and gets it to move away a little, Dilshan pokes forward but fails to cover the line as the ball clips the outside edge and carries through to Browne. Bravo set him up the previous delivery with a jaffa and he was rewarded 49/5
    49.5 he falls for 95! Edwards dishes out an inswinging yorker, Kapugedera gets across his stumps and tries to paddle that one wide of short fine leg but the ball strikes him on the boot, Umpire Duncan is convinced 234/7

    26.6 that's his debut wicket....Pitches in line with legstump from over the wicket, it comes on straight and Gayle pokes forward to defend, he's hit in line with the stumps and Taufel is convinced 109/2
    13.3 pitches fractionally outside the line of legstump, Smith shapes to flick it to the on side but the ball skids through and traps him on the pad, umpire Duncan is convinced 53/1
    27.4 the bowling change works! Kulasekara pitches it fractionally outside the line off offstump and gets it to move away, Sarwan tamely tries to steer that towards third man but gets a thick edge to Sangakkara. His foot movement was minimal 109/3
    27.6 Sri Lanka claw back quickly.... Kulasekara pitches that outside the line of offstump and gets it to seam back inwards after pitching, Samuels gets across his stumps but is very lazy on the stroke, the ball skids through and hits him in line of middle and leg, umpire Duncan raises the finger 110/4

    38.1 terrible mixup.... Dilshan delivers from round the wicket, Chanderpaul works it against the turn to short fine-leg, Bravo eyes a single and charges down the track, Chanderpaul was looking at Jayawardene who fired in the throw to the keeper, Sangakkara fired the throw to the bowler but by then, both batsmen were at the same end 169/5
    44.4 Flighted on middle and leg, Browne tries to go downtown again and this time he fails to clear the fielder, Mendis at long-on runs to his left and catches it 201/6
    45.4 the flipper! Sammy is totally squared up at the crease as the ball lands on offstump and skids through and whips the top of offstump. Mendis is quite a revelation already 203/7
    47.6 Rush of blood.... Mendis dishes out another legbreak, Taylor stays at the crease and tries to repeat the slog which fetched him the six but he lands it down Silva's throat at long-on 219/8
    48.5 Benn's nightmare ends, the ball is full on off stump, Benn finally connects, he swings across the line and Jayawardene at midwicket has a shy at the stumps and hits, Taufel doesn't bother to call for the replay 219/9
