    2.3 Badree gets his own back as Jayasuriya tries the reverse again. This time he misses a full straight delivery and seems to be hit smack in front. The only question is, did it straighten enough to not be missing off stump with the angle? The replays show it didn't turn, which means it couldn't have pitched within the stumps. Only a part of it pitched inside the line of leg, which by the way Jayasuriya converted into off by reversing his stance 16/1
    3.3 Strange running. Udawatte has run himself out. Length ball, middle and off, worked away to fine leg, and they come back for the non-existent two. Adrian Barath's throw is flat, quick, on the bounce, and by the stumps. Mahela is well short 25/2
    17.3 Rampaul has been too quick for Ruhuna all day. This is an accurate bouncer, at his throat, Chandimal is late into the shot, top-edges the pull back to RR 114/5
    3.5 Another run-out. Some will bring up the spirit of cricket debate here. Chandimal has pushed this not too wide of the bowler, Siriwardana rushes through for the non-existent single, Rampaul goes after the ball too, and there is a minor collision. That has hardly put Siriwardana off his track, and Jason Mohamed rushes in from midwicket to run his out. I think he would have struggled even if there hadn't been a collision. He was on his feet anyway 26/3
    14.3 and the slower one gets him a wicket. The offcutter. Pitches on a length, outside off, beats the wild slog, pegs back the off stump 93/4
    19.4 big wild slog, misses, Sampath wants the bye to retain strike, this time Ramdin is quicker and goes for the striker's end, and hits bull's eye 138/8
    18.5 this is short across him, and he has to pull from way outside off, the top edge settles with short fine leg who takes a smart catch running backwards 132/6
    19.2 yorker outside off, Ramdin is smart behind the stumps. Sees that Sampath has charged through for the bye, and lobs this to the bowler who runs Amal out to ensure another dot 137/7

    19.5 Timber. Golden duck for Chintaka Perrea. Too good for a No. 10. Middle-stump yorker. The best in the world would have had to be alert to keep this out 138/9
    19.6 Four wickets and a run in this over. Janoda gets inside the line to try to clear short fine, gets too far inside the line, is beaten, and Ramdin lobs the throw to Rampaul to prevent the bye. The fifth run-out of the innings 138/10

    2.6 another early wicket for Ruhuna, who are right back in the game. The lack of pace has proved to be Simmons's undoing. Looks to manufacture something by making room, Gunaratne stays full and straight. Simmons looks to go inside-out, but is too close to the ball and gets no elevation. Caught at mid-off 6/2
    0.4 well Barath has been eager to get off the mark with a risk-free nudge. He tried to run a non-single last ball, this time again he tries to deflect this on the run. Fails to hit it, the ball deflects off his pad to Chandimal, who is quick to catch the overbalanced batsman out of his crease 1/1

    5.3 Jayasuriya strikes. That old bald fox. Fires this in, Ganga goes for the sweep, misses, seems to be hit in front of middle. Oxenford takes his time before lifting his finger. Replays show he was dead plumb 28/3
    9.3 no mistakes this time. The slower bowl has done Ramdin in. He goes for the big humongous swipe across the line, the meaty top edge has gone and hit some cliffs before coming back down. Chandimal is safely under it 56/4
    13.5 And another T&T batsman skies one moments after starting accelerating. Janoda stays quick, 138ks, Jason clears the front leg to slog, the slight extra bounce takes the thick top edge, and Guna completes the catch running in from extra cover 81/5
