    2.4 dabbed to the leg side, desperate to get off the mark, rushes for a single but the mid-wicket fielder is quick and throws down the stumps at the non-striker's end, the third umpire is called for and he has an easy decision to make. Out. 0/2
    1.2 bowled him, second ball, through the gate, it was pitched right up to the bat and swung into the batsman, he was going for a drive and went through to disturb the castle. 0/1
    13.3 short of length, he tried to upper cut it over point, but did not get any elevation, probably because he did not have the room to hit it, goes straight to point...gone for 28 off even time 68/5
    8.2 goes down the track and hits it wide long-on, Oram dashes for it and takes an excellent catch to his right, does not need to dive but that is because he has judged it rather well there 23/3
    10.1 gone, bowled this time, he had to attempt those slogs given the batting side's situation and he misses it, four down! 34/4
    15.1 slower one, pitched right up and it hits the pads, the customary appeal is followed by its upholding and that is wicket number six for Uva Next 79/6
    17.3 another one attempted, gets an outside edge and is caught at third-man! He continues to move around in his crease, Fernando sends it quicker on the middle stump and he only gets nowhere near the middle, carries all the way to Oram 92/7

    18.2 down the track and bowled! Everything seemed to happen in slow motion there, was a tad slower, the batsman came down the track and wanted to slog it away, missed and the stumps are rattled 97/8

    5.5 catch? is that a clean catch? if that is, it is an excellent one, short and cut away, it was dipping on to the fielder at the covers and he dives in front of him and plucks it just millimetres above the grass! 43/1
    11.4 outside the leg, pushed away to the deep fine-leg for a single, they are getting back for the second, the throw comes in hard and Taylor dislodges them before Chanders is able to get back. He dived in but he was less than half a yard short of the crease...third umpire is taking time to take that decision. And finally gives it out. Foot in the door? 73/2
    12.5 cleaned him up, for a change he pushed this one fuller and the batsman struggles to get any bat on it, misses it by some distance and the stumps are rattled 80/3

    14.3 gone, that is a poor stroke there from Tharanga, it was on the off stump and he tries to play it over mid-on this time, a leading edge carries to mid-off for a simple catch 92/4
    15.4 gone, outside edge, caught behind and the Utharas are well and truly in this one! Cross seam, going away from the batsman, he went for a drive and only managed to get a thick edge through to the keeper 98/5
    17.3 gone, run-out, Oram's been sent back! It was pushed to the off side, the bowler runs to his right, it was only a couple of yards away, bends down and throws the stumps at the striker's end down, by then Oram was half way out and there was no way he was getting close to that crease once again. 106/6
