    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
