15.4 good catch! Another excellent take from Sangakkara diving to his left to pluck a thick outside edge from Cook, tumbling to his left. Not an easy catch by any means, but made to look very simple 56/3
    2.4 edged and brilliantly caught outside off stump! A bit of width and Mustard had a slash, but Sangakkara read the situation perfectly, dived full-stretch with his right hand, and plucked the catch where first slip would have been! Massive breakthrough 3/1
    9.6 slower ball, and Bell is suckered by it! Climbs into a flick over midwicket, but can't clear Malinga at mid-on! That's a very timely wicket, and once again Bell has fallen when well set 32/2
    18.5 he's bowled him! Vaas has bowled him around his legs - what a wicket that is. Pietersen stepped across his stumps - why? - and Vaas zoned in to take out his leg stump 76/5
    17.2 that's gone, I'm telling you. Collingwood is nailed back in his crease - absolutely no feet movement, and that's hitting middle-and-leg. Rudi Koertzen gives him the deathly slow finger of fate 72/4
    19.6 gone! And another one for Fernando who's found a beauty which spat up on Shah. He tried to fend it off but it ballooned straight to Lokuarachchi at cover. Another cracking delivery from Fernando who, it is fair to say, is absolutely on fire 78/6
    not out
    21.1 and there it is! Broad beaten by the slower ball and chips it straight into Jayasuriya's hands at midwicket 82/7
    21.3 and another! This is an extraordinary performance from Fernando. It was full, it was straight...and Sidebottom just missed it. Simple as that 82/8
    23.5 another catch for Sangakkara and an easy one too. An indecisive poke from Anderson who tried to push it to cover and got a thick outside edge 87/9
    29.1 brilliant catch from Sangakkara to end the match as Monty fished to this wider ball. A thick outside edge and Sangakkara took a cracker to his left 104/10
