    3.3 ball angling into just outside the off stump, Kirsten tries to chop it away on the off side, inside edge into the stumps 22/1
    5.5 wild swing at a wide one outside off stump, Gibbs really trying to reach for that one, outside edge low on the bat, very faint, Gibbs stands his ground but the umpire tells him to take a walk 24/2
    6.3 but that one's cleanup him up, Boucher trying to play down the angled line, instead misses it, plays outside it, the off stump is sent flying 24/3
    14.5 pushing at it, trying to push thru the covers, too far away from the batsman, another terrible shot for a dismissal, excellent low rolling catch by the 2nd slip 53/4
    34.2 big lofted shot down the wicket, silly shot, vaas is running back at long off, catches it, backpeddling over the boundary, throws it away in time and falls over the rope, much confusion, TV umpire called again 122/8
    20.4 flicked in behind of square leg, great pick up and throw from deep square leg, to the keeper, stumps down, TV called, clearly out, but the TV ump takes an eon to give the decision 69/5
    28.2 sweeping, top edge, flats in the air, child's play catch for Jayasuriya at backward square leg, SL celebrate 103/6
    32.2 driven into the ground, bounces into Ranatunga's leg at silly point, Murali catches the deflection and there's a big appeal, TV replay called because the onfield umpires don't have a clue 115/7

    4 what an over, inseam into the left hander, cross bat shot from Jaya, trying to force behind point, plays over it, perhaps a bottom edge, whatever, the middle stump is not to be found standing 13/2
    3.3 ball flies off the outside edge, Kalu trying to push it thru the point, Cullinan parries it in the air, and then dives to take an excellent catch at 1st slip 12/1
    5.5 driving into the covers, inside edge, gone, Boucher taking an excellent forward diving catch, moving to his left 14/3
    7 seaming in, struck in line with middle, hitting the leg stump, SL are in the doo doo 14/4
    35 picthing on off, slight inseam, into the forward defensive pad, quite plumb, hitting middle or middle and leg, umpire thinks so as well 110/9
    13.2 just pushing at it trying to defend, outside edge, keeper takes it, another one bites the dust 31/5
    22.1 woeful shot, backfoot drive, ball bounces to much, comes off the splice of the bat and pops into the covers for an easy catch by Kallis 66/6
    28 leaning on the back foot, slapping it down the throat of the cover fielder 86/7
    31.1 slapping an off drive, ball floats thru the air in a nice arc, easy catch for the mid off moving wide 98/8
    35.2 aims at the leg stump, quick ball, too quick for the batsman, SL well on track to become the 3rd consecutive World Cup holders to miss out on the semi finals 110/10
