    7.3 oh what a catch, what a catch! Kandamby! Kuleya drags it marginally short, Strauss rocks back and pulls and Kandamby at short midwicket sticks out his right hand and just plucks it, that ball was smacked but he pulled off a stunner 19/2
    3.5 now that is good bowling! Kulasekara, after a series of length balls that surprised Denly for bounce, pitches one up and uses his stock delivery to send him back, pitches and moves in to hit him on the pads in front of middle stump, just a fatal second too late on the defensive 9/1
    34.5 Murali strikes! This one pitches outside leg stump and grips across with the arm, luring Shah forward, the ball kisses the edge, Sangakkara collects and also whips off the stumps, Shah knows he is out and just waits for confirmation from the umpire 158/4
    19.5 inside-edged! Collingwood perishes softly, standing up to try and just push a short of a length ball for a single but ends up dragging it back onto the base of off 82/3
