    2.2 that's the breakthrough and it's a lovely diving catch from the captain, reaching low to his right at slip as Cook fences uncertainly off the back foot. Nothing more than a probing line and length, but Vaas has his reward for eight accurate deliveries 2/1
    17.1 poor stroke. Mustard steps to the off side and tries to scoop this slower ball over fine leg, but gets a top edge which is safely snaffled in the covers 56/3
    7.2 nailed plumb in front of the stumps, as Bell pays the price for his busy footwork! He shuffled across to work the ball through midwicket, but chose the wrong ball for the shot. He was struck on the kneeroll in front of middle and off, and Rudi Koertzen's slow death finger does the rest 25/2
    18.3 banged in short of a length, it climbs onto Pietersen who pulls this from outside the off stump straight to Jayawardene at midwicket 61/4
    34.6 full, straight, and gone! Collingwood was aiming leg-side having shuffled across his stumps, but the ball kept low and beat him for pace. A big, big breakthrough. The skipper is sunk 139/5
    49.4 what a catch that is. Cracked on the front foot by Shah, aerially, and Chamara Silva dived high to his left at a wide mid-off to cling on. A superb take to end a very fine innings 230/8
    35.5 A soft dismissal, and a big one too. Bopara steps way across his stumps in an attempt to work one off his pads, but he misses it entirely and loses his leg stump! Now England really are in trouble 142/6
    47.2 cuts it out to deep extra cover, and they take two. But no! They're coming back for three, but the throw is hard and fast and it's curtain's for Swann who is metres short of his ground 212/7

    1.2 England strike early! Just outside off, a thick edge and Cook takes a tumbling catch to his left at second slip 9/1
    5.4 width outside off and Jayasuriya lashes a punch off the back foot to cover where Bell holds on to a stinger 21/2
    12.6 wide, Sangakkara flashes, gets a thick edge and Mustard takes a good, low catch diving to his left. 38/3
    23.6 stopped on him, he tried to turn it onto the leg-side and sends a leading edge to Pietersen who takes a very tidy catch indeed 90/6
    14.1 a first baller for Silva, undone by a bit more bounce, he can't get over the ball, it takes the shoulder of the bat and loops gently to backward point 38/4

    32.2 outside off, driven back to the bowler, and there's an excellent catch, snapped low 121/7
    33.5 angling across the left hander, swinging away, found the outside edge as he chased it. Mustard made no mistake 126/8
    34.3 run out at the non-striker's end without scoring, courtesy of Bell's quick work from cover 126/9
    44.3 short one, straight and there's a call to the third umpire for a run-out for Collingwood's bullet from backward point and that completes the win 169/10
