    3 another one bites the dust and it is a run-out, Jayasuroya cuts hard to the covers, fielded well and Jayasuriya was going for the run. Then suddenly he stops to look at the non-striker who was looking at the ball, not running. Just as SJ stopped, Samaraweera started to run, SJ also ran but back to his crease and within a second or two, both were at the same end the throw came at the non-striker's end and easily effects the run-out! 7/1
    2.4 just as I was saying, why a spinner, this is the reason why! Spin away from the bat and he was going down the track, missed it completely because of the turn and beats the outside edge, no problem for the keeper to whip off the bails! 7/1
    3.5 edged and gone, Jayasuriya got this one on the off stump, seamed away from the veteran and he was only able to edge it to the slip, three down for 14 14/3
    12 attempts that same stroke again which had hit him earlier, this time it was fuller too and he went for that late, delicate dab to short third-man, misses and the bails are all over! 73/4
    18.2 and again, this one has hit the toe of the bat which means that the ball took more height than distance, the batsman knew he had mis-hit it, but the fielder at long-on comes in running and takes a fantastic catch! 138/6
    14.2 leading edge and caught! round the stumps, and straight, he was trying to work it away to the on-side, leading edge to short cover, easy, easy catch! 85/5
    19.1 slower, full-toss, dipping down on the batsman and that was pulled away, did not get too much timing and the fielder runs in before taking a good catch at deep square-leg 144/7
    20 slower on the off stump, length ball and he tries to slog it over to mid-wicket, does not time it too well and another, good, diving catch by the fielder at long-on 149/8

    2.4 gone, gone this time, he was swinging away again across the line, gets another leading edge and for the second time it goes high in the air, but also to third-man, easy catch again but we have seen these get dropped only recently, this time it is easily caught! 16/1
    10.4 gone, very easy decision for the umpire, wanted to go for a reverse sweep, it was very full and the batsman missed, pitched in line and hitting the middle, umpire has no difficulty giving the marching orders 66/2
    13 sad way to end your innings, it was a full-toss on the middle and should have been thwacked over mid-wicket, instead he tries to hit it very hard, gets a top-edge and caught by the wicket-keeper 84/3
    15 outside the off stump, he was going down the track and the bowler sent it across him and wider, he stretched and tried to cut it away, the edge goes straight to the point fielder and guess what, it has been caught this time! 93/4
    17.1 inside out but can only get it to long-off, caught easily this time at long-off, was giving himself room but was followed by the bowler 109/5

    18.4 another slower one, Razzaq got some bat on it and got it through to long-on, they get a single, the non-striker wanted to come back for the second to get the Pakistani on strike, but Razzaq does not respond to it and he is run-out at the striker's end 127/6
