    2.3 oh well held Morgan! Anderson gets his man, pitching it up outside off stump, Dilshan has a full-blooded drive at that but Morgan at backward point cups a good low catch 7/2
    1.5 top ball and that's edged! Really a gem of a delivery from Onions, pitched up, no room to work with, lures Jayasuriya forward, then deviates ever so gently as he pushes at it and the thin nick is snapped up by Prior 7/1
    5.2 edged and gone! Another one goes, its Sangakkara this time, chasing a full and wide ball leaving him and he can only edge it Strauss at first slip, who cups it in front of his face, Australian style 17/4
    4.6 gone, gone! Anderson does indeed pitch it up and this one is the inswinger, catching Jayawardene dead in front, late on the shot, beaten by the late swing 17/3
    19.5 a wicket just when it seemed England were losing the plot! Broad locates his radar, pitches on a far better and fuller length as he searches for swing, Samaraweera goes for a hard-handed drive and pops an easy catch to Collingwood at backward point 81/5
    37.4 snapped! Short of a length outside off, Kandamby taps it to cover and runs off, it was his call but Mathews turns him down, two men converge and Wright to has plenty of time to return the ball to Prior with Kandamby down the track 163/6
    40.5 gone! End of a good innings as Wright pitches on a good length and gets some gentle movement to draw the outside edge, Prior dives forward and takes the catch 176/7

    43.2 bye! Full and straight, Murali swings, misses, and the top of off stump goes flying 197/8
    43.3 bowled him! That's an easy one for Broad, just pitching it up and beating the bat as Malinga tries a dinky little dab, again off stump is pegged back 197/9
    47.3 good catch by Strauss at slip, diving forward to cup an outside edge low, Mendis stays in his crease and pushes at the ball and Anderson ends a very good evening personally 212/10

    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
