    0.3 another length ball on the leg stump, it hits the batsman as he is shuffling to play it towards the leg side, he gets hit in front of the leg stump, under the knee roll. The umpire takes some time and then raises his finger. KJP walks up to Dilshan to ask how that looked, but after a lengthy discussion, he is on his way. 8/1
    22.2 caught at slip! What a catch by Watson, diving to his right, he picked this one low and one-handed! Doherty has been bowling well to Dilshan, he floats this one on the middle and leg line and gets it to turn just a touch, enough to beat batsman's whippy drive to the on side. Dilshan got a leading edge and Watson did the rest completing an excellent catch 92/3
    3.2 big big wicket this is! Sanga has driven a full and wide delivery straight into the hands of point. It's his bread and butter shot, and he would have backed himself to clear that fielder, but he didn't get much elevation as the fielder takes it just over his head 20/2
    31.3 short delivery outside off and he has pulled it straight to the fielder at midwicket. He was done in by the pace, 143 kph on that one, and was not in control of that shot. Also, that didn't bounce as high as anyone would have expected it to, Thiri took it just below chest high. A big breakthrough although 128/4

    36.6 That is bowled! For a few seconds no one had any idea about what was going on! It was a full length delivery and the batsman tried to whip it to the leg side, but it flicked the off stump on its way. The bowler was busy appealing for something (maybe a caught behind as there was a sound).. But it took a while for everyone to realise that the bails were off 159/5
    46.2 caught at mid-on. Tries the big whack again, but it was a slower delivery and although it looked like he had made good connection, he hadn't. That went just high and not long at all. Easily gobbled 224/6
    47.4 bowls a slower ball outside off, the batsman tries to pull it down the ground but doesn't get hold of it. It falls around mid-on and the batsmen try to steal a second, but a quick throw from the deep catches Kula well short of his crease 234/7
    49.1 Mahela makes room and drives it inside out, but this is straight to the man at extra cover. Mahela was not interested in the single, but Herath runs all the way down to the striker's end.. Simple run out, but doesn't really matter at this stage. Mahela is still on strike 244/8

    1.2 Kula has done it, last match it was with the bat, this time he has removed the dangerman Shane Watson with the ball, the ball angles in towards the stumps, Watson looks to dab it behind point, no footwork from Watson, he misses and the stumps are disturbed, the Sri Lankan fans at The Oval scream to make it known how big a moment this is 9/1
    5.2 what sort of shot is that? Hughes guides that off the middle of the bat to the keeper, looking to steer that to third man but he doesn't get enough on it, Australia lose their second, it was a back of a length ball outside off, Hughes tried to be too cute and paid the price 45/2
    6.3 no answers to this one from Malinga! He must have played these a few times in Mumbai, but he hasn't learnt much. It was a slower ball yorker and Maxwell, who was making room, missed it completely. The leg stump takes a beating 59/3
    8.3 exactly the same delivery and this time it results in a wicket! Kula is on fire. He was there at short fine leg and fires in a flat throw to catch Bailey well short of the crease. The batsman was stealing a leg-bye there. 69/4
    30.2 caught at long-on! The end is nigh, Voges tries to smash it over long-on but played it straight into the hands of Eranga.. 192/9
    12.6 a very slow offcutter, it made the batsman wait and wait, Marsh tries to chop it to the off side and played inside the line. The ball knocks the offstump back. Aussies are crumbling 80/5
    19.1 caught at long-off! Wade falls after a brief counter-attacking innings and it sets off the Sri Lankan fielders into wild celebrations. It was a length delivery wide outside off and Wade tried to whack it straight down the ground but got a thick leading edge that ballooned over the infield, but Dilshan at long-off was waiting for it 127/6
    23.6 super catch by Sanga! It was tossed up on off, the batsman wanted to swipe it across the line, it turned and took the toe-end Sanga made it look easy 163/7
    24.6 another catch for Kula, this one at mid-off. Johnson tries to smash it down the ground again, but this delivery was slightly wider and he didn't reach for it, he got a healthy top-edge and today, Kula is unlikely to make any mistake 168/8
    42.3 he catches it this time! Absolute blinder by Dilshan to set off wild celebrations on the ground. The crowd has found its voice! It was another flatter delivery, shorter too and the batsman punched it back.. Dilshan was moving to his right, but the ball was hit to his left at a comfortable height, but he quickly changed direction and plucked it out from nowhere, it was drifting away from him all the time.. Special catch to finally end Australia's resistance 233/10
