    0.2 and Malinga removes Kyle Coetzer with a short of a length which gets the leading edge as he pushed at it half-heartedly, with Malinga claiming this dolly offered up to him in his follow through. Sri Lanka off to the perfect start, and Scotland one down with none on the board 0/1
    7.3 darts in a yorker which has MacLeod playing all around it as he looked to dig away to the leg side. The shape coming in deceived Calum, who is sent back to the pavilion with 11 to his name 26/2
    11.2 Dilshan fires in a quicker one which looks to have Machan plumb in front as he played all around it. Given out by the umpire straight away, but Machan wants a review after discussing with his partner. No issues with the no-ball. Delivered the arm ball which looks to have struck the front pad, with nothing on Snicko to suggest there was an inside-edge. All about whether it is clipping the stumps, and the verdict is in, with 'umpire's call' being given for this hitting the wicket, so Machan has to go. Big blow to Scotland's chances as he was one of their more established batsmen 44/3
    31.6 and finally, after what seems like ages, the stand is broken as Mommsen drives this fuller length delivery on the up straight to the short cover fielder, who is able to take the catch comfortably as he dove forward 162/4
    35.6 Coleman has to go after looking for the heave over long on, ends up getting a toe-end to this slower ball which goes up straight over mid-on, with Perera settling under it nicely. Departs the oval, but has played a valuable knock all the same 189/5
    41.1 Chameera sends in a fuller length which is clubbed away, although not well enough, to the fellow at mid-off, who almost fumbles it as it went through the hands before he could consolidate the catch 210/9
    37.5 looks to send this shorter ball high over midwicket, but is unable to get to it. Looked like it might be called a wide, before Sangakkara, thinking the batsman may have got a bat on it, asked for a review. Doesn't appear to be any indication of bat on ball on first glance, but Snicko has something a bit more definitive, as there appears to be a flicker on the line when the ball passed through, hitting somewhere around the bottom edge of the bat. After some deliberation, the decision has come in, and he has been given out. Excellent review by Sangakkara, as he seemed to be the only one confident about this 192/6
    39.4 Cross' little Hobart adventure comes to a close as he looks to flat-bat this one over the bowler, with this flying just to the right and back of the keeper at third man, who is able to get his gloves around it as it swirled in the air 200/7
    40.5 completely miscues this back of a length as he hit this aerially over mid-on. Was another slower ball which caught the toe-end as Perera is given another opportunity at catching practice. Scotland eight down now as Sri Lanka look to deliver the final rites 209/8
    43.1 and Sri Lanka wrap it up here in Hobart, courtesy of this edge off Chameera's bowling which flies comfortably to Lahiru at first slip, who is able to get low to his left to pluck it 215/10
