    6.4 edged and gone! Set him up with a couple inswingers, this time he fires it full and gets it to seam away as Tharanga pushes forward, and the edge is snapped up by Hayden at first slip, taking it very low even as Ponting from second dives in front of him! 27/3
    4.3 gone! Good length outside off stump, moving in, Jayasuriya stands rooted and gets caught on the front leg pretty much in front of about leg stump, and after a couple seconds umpire Doctrove raises the finger! The dangerous Jayasuriya goes to Bracken! 26/1
    5.3 gone! Tough call - pitches on a good length just outside off stump, moves in, Sangakkara stands behind the line and defends, misses, the ball shaves in hits him on the knee roll, everyone appeals and after a while Aleem Dar raises the finger! I have doubts over the height of that ball, looked like it may have gone over the stumps, but for now Sangakkara has to go! 27/2
    39.4 well bowled, well stumped! Hogg tosses up a beauty on a great length, Jayawardene lunges forward, plays for turn, is beaten in the flight and all Gilchrist has to do it whip off the bails as the back leg's in the air, neatly done, and Hogg gets another key batsman 174/5
    37.2 goddim! Tossed up on middle and leg, now he prefers the more orthodox sweep, but mistimes it and the top-edge is easily gobbled up by Clarke at short fine leg, success for Hogg 167/4
    40.6 banged in short outside off stump, Dilshan hooks, awfully mistimed, and the ball just bobs up for Hodge to pouch a dolly at square leg 178/6
    42.4 bowled 'em with another short one! Quick, too bouncy for Arnold, who stands rooted and gets cramped on the swipe, all tangled up, and the result is an inside-edge back onto the stumps 183/7
    49.4 all over, Bracken finishes the innings with a slower one that Maharoof just chips in the air down to Symonds at long-on 226/10
    43.3 edged and gone! Bracken maintains his probing, moving line outside off stump, shaping one across Kulasekara to drive on the up, and the thick edge is snapped up very well by Hayden at a deep lone slip, down near his ankles, his second beauty of the day 184/8
    48.6 he ends his spell with another, banging in a long-hop, Bandara pulls and can only balloon it up to Hogg at midwicket for a comfortable take 218/9

    13.3 gone, Arnold, and in the Powerplays! Fires one quicker outside off stump, Gilchrist thrusts the pad forward, the bat is late, gets hit in line of middle and off, every man in blue in the ring goes up, and Aleem Dar has little hesitation in raising the finger! 79/2
    11.5 gone this time, and the bowling change pays off! Arnold tosses it up flat on off stump, Hayden gets down, eyeing the inviting gap over long-on, but swipes it to Dilshan at midwicket instead. Crucial breakthrough for Sri Lanka 76/1

    23.1 good catch! Bandara hustles in, loops one up, Clarke uses the feet well, drives hard to extra cover, but fails to keep it down, and Dilshan gets forward and clings on to it an inch before the ground. Clarke isnt convinced, stands his ground. Bandara knows its out. Both umpires confer and yes, it was taken cleanly, they agree, so Clarke walks off, shaking his head. 126/3
