    0.2 Got em! Rusty has picked a huge wicket early, Jayawardene is gone! Another away swinger coming from that nagging angle, wide of the crease, Mahela throws his bat at it, but the away movement does him in. The thick edge flies into the slip cordon and it is snaffled by Kreusch at second slip. Well done! 0/1
    14.1 aaaand gone! Tsosobe landed that on a length outside off and Kulatunga tried to do what he has been doing all day - looks to loft it straight, but for a change, it misses the middle and hits low down on the bat. He ends up spooning it straight up and Kreusch settles down under it. Important wicket. 110/4
    0.6 another one bites the dust! Theron has removed two in his opening over and Wayamba are reeling here! Short ball, but not short enough to pull, Udawatte decides to take the challenge, but it was quicker on him and gets a top edge as his top hand comes off. As ungainly as they come! It balloons easily towards mid on, where the fielder tumbles across to take a good catch 2/2
    8.2 Eid Mubarak to Jehan Mubarak, but the party is over! Tossed up on off stump, he pranced out of his crease and looked to loft it over long off, but he got too close to it and hence could not get the elevation. Straight into long off's lap 50/3
    16.3 Gone! The frustration gets to Perera, who has not been given much to drive.. He backs away to the leg side this time, to make some room, but this one was short and outside off.. He went for the lofted drive, but could not clear long off. The canny Theron strikes again. 126/5
    17.1 Another one bites the dust, Loku is gone looking to smash one straight.. He is down the track and Botha smartly pulls the length back and Loku can't get into any position. Still goes through with th4e shot and offers a dolly to short cover 133/6
    19.1 WHOA! As I collect my breath, let me describe what happened there: It was a length ball on middle and leg, Thisara got under it and hoisted it high and it seemed headed for the long on stands.. Boucher behind the stands had his hand out to protect his eyes from the sun as he sought to trace the path of that ball... and somehow, Botha at long off, on the edge of the playing area, hauled it in. Thisara is distraught, and Ntini breaks into a smile! 144/7
    19.2 two in two, again holes out in the deep! Length ball on middle and leg, Maharoof looks to send this into another planet, but gravity brings it back down to the lap of deepmidwicket. Can he get a hat-trick? 144/8
    19.6 and a run-out to finish, bizarre I must say. Herath stayed in the crease and swung it to deep wicket, picked a single, and then seemed to take for ever to turn back and go for the second.. Seemed like a relay race where he was waiting for his partner to come over and pass on the baton. The throw was smartly sent to the striker's end and Boucher removed the bails before Herath could dive in. 153/9

    7.5 Mendis has nailed Jacobs with a canny offspinner! The pressure was building all through the over, with the field spread out, Jacobs could not resort to just beating the in field. This one came in sharply as he shaped for the cut and disturbed the furniture. Big blow. 69/2
    2.1 Got him! Prince has been jumping all over the place, trying to manufacture room, but now he is headed for the dressing room. He backed away to the leg side this time, but Welegedara stayed calm and fired it full and straight on middle stump. Prince missed and clatter.. Middle peg is knocked back. 17/1
    10.6 Ingram combusts, no need to have done that.. Has he given Wayamba an opening here? It was flighted outside off, Ingram jumped out and looked to carve it over the covers. Did not get the timing right, and it went straight up for a steepler to Mubarak. 93/3
