    6.4 he gets a wicket in his first over this year! It was a short of length delivery outside off, Dilshan tries to push it towards off with an open face but gets a thick outside edge that the keeper takes low to his right 53/1

    7.4 oh he has struck the big wicket! It was the back of the hand slower delivery to which Kohli comes forward to play, it was almost a left-hander's leg-cutter, and it does cut in to the batsman, takes the inside edge and hits the stumps 57/2
    8.6 oh that's a good catch at mid-off by Chandila! He didn't get the big wicket with the ball, but he takes an excellent low catch diving to his left at mid-off. AB charged down to a length delivery and absolutely smashed it as he went inside out, but he ends up playing it a lot straighter then he would have wanted. A second wicket for Watson 64/3
    not out
