    15.4 Vaas strikes! short of a good length delivery, perfect line and lenght and Cumming had no option but to play at it - feather edge straight to the keeper 66/2
    12.5 that's plumb in front! Murali tosses it up on off stump, How moves across and plays back, the offspinner hits him in front of middle and leg and he was playing right back in his crease 58/1
    18.1 Sinclair goes! flat delivery on the stumps - when in doubt sweep and that's precisely what Sinclair did but he failed to keep it down. Sangakkara at square leg dived across to his left and took it with both hands. This game is wide open now 68/4
    17.1 game on! good length delivery on the middle and leg stump line, hint of swing there - Fleming pushes forward to defend but fails to make contact and the ball hits the pad right in front of the stumps. Lound appeal and up goes the finger 66/3
    30.3 Astle goes off the first ball he faces after tea, that one pitched around off stump and straightened, Astle played forward but down the wrong line, he got hit in front of middle and that was pretty plumb, almost identical to his dismissal in the first innings 103/5
