    63.6 gone! bowled from round the stumps, Murali fires it in at a fuller length, Mashud moves right across his stumps and is beaten by the extra pace, ball turns in just enough to beat the bat and Mashud is trapped plumb in front of the stumps, umpire Bucknor took his time and in the end adjudicated in favour of the bowler 210/5
    71.5 and Murali strikes back! tossed up and turning in, Kapali pushes forward to defend and ends up with a faint edge onto the pad and the ball pops up straight to Tharanga at short leg, loud appeal and up goes the finger - that was a surprisingly quick decision from umpire Bucknor 248/6
