Commentary

Presentation:

Malinga: Disappointing, not bowling too well, giving too many boundaries. It is hot during the day and it does not swing, at night the pitch affords some swing and makes it difficult for the batsmen too.

Jayasuriya: The batsmen did well despite losing the wickets, we kept up the run-rate. The batsmen should bat longer though, Tanvir troubled all the batsmen, Hastings did well too and that is why we did well. Not too many want to bat against Tanvir with the new ball.

Vithanage is the man of the match: Like keeping to the quicks, easier for me. Yeah enjoyed my catch to dismiss Sri Lanka. The pitch was a tad slow, not too quick and I was accordingly standing up for it.

That is it for this one, hop over to the live commentary of the second match of the day.

One would have thought that that 143 was not too much of a chase, but superb bowling from Tanvir at the start and Ajmal in the middle has scuttled the Ruhuna chase, in the end they have been bowled out for 100. Presentation next.
