    4.3 gone, caught! It was on the middle stump and it was short and it could have been smacked any where on the leg side, instead he has clipped it to short fine-leg and they have lost another! 25/2
    1.1 bowled him, first ball! It was round the stumps, and did not turn at all, it was quicker and went through with the arm, bowled 6/1
    8.4 on the off stump, short it was and the batsman wanted to punch it over mid-on, instead he only managed to scoop it back to the bowler, it was to his left and Seekkuge leaps up to his left to catch it well, Muralitharan would be proud of those leaping abilities! 49/4
    8.2 wants to cut it away and the bounce defeats him, takes the top of the bat and the keeper does well to hold on to it, the umpire sends him away 48/3
    18.1 attempts a yorker, turned into a full-toss that hits him high on his bat, spooned up to deep square-leg for an easy catch, the fielder claims he almost did not see it in the lights 119/8
    10.5 easy, easy catch for Malik at the long-on fence, end of Rambukwella, he went for another slog over mid-wicket, gets bit of a top edge and it spoons up in the air, went quite high in fact and Malik came under it, judged well and took it easily. 64/5
    14.4 cut and gone! This is going the Uva Next's way alright, it was outside the off stump and had enough room in it for the batsman to get it up and over the short third-man fielder, but had no pace, PJ had to generate that himself, a task in which he fails and ends up scooping it straight to the fielder inside the circle 83/6
    15.5 bowled this time attempts a similar shot, it was slower, shorter and beats the under edge of the bat, sneaks through to the stumps 92/7
    not out
    19.4 in the block-hole, dug out by the batsman down the ground for a single, there was some confusion for the second one, in the end it costs them the wicket. 139/9
