    6 was that going down? the umpire doesn't think so, he raises the finger as soon as the lbw question is raised, that was a short of length ball angling in, Munaweera looked to swing it to the leg side, was struck on the thigh pad in front of middle and leg 46/2
    0.4 Udana has struck in the first over, shortish and angling in towards the off stump, don't think there was much movement off the pitch, Rajapaksa nibbles it through to the keeper 5/1
    10.3 Razzaq strikes, it was a short of length ball, Kandamby moved away from leg stump and looked to crash that through the off side, he pats it straight to backward point, the pressure had been building over the last few overs 72/3

    11.3 McDonald is foxed by the flight, he is lured out of the crease on seeing the ball tossed up, he can't get bat on it though and it slips past him, nearly slips past the keeper as well, who needs several attempts to collect the ball before clumsily breaking the stumps to confirm a duck for McDonald 73/4
    13.5 third time in the over that he went for the sweep, Hogg bowls the perfect chinaman delivery, pitching on a length just outside off and spinning in, beats the sweep and takes out off stump, Hogg is toying with Uva here 89/5
    17.5 Oram's pyrotechnics are over, a full toss outside off, Oram checks his cut, and that carries to backward point, a soft dismissal there after all the hard-hitting, still Oram's 41 has transformed this game, Uva were plodding along till he came along to energise the innings 145/6

    3.2 Tamim loses his head and his wicket, he needed to buckle down here after the wickets of Chandimal and Mahela, he charges down the ground blindly, looks for an almighty heave, nowhere near the ball, the keeper has an eternity to take the bails off and send Tamim on his way, poor batting that 19/3
    1.3 huge appeal for a stumping, the keeper is convinced, it was a flighted delivery from Senanayake that Chandimal looks to drill towards long-on, his back foot was dragged out of the crease as he completed the shot, he misses the ball, keeper does the rest, Chandimal is stumped, Wayamba under the pump 14/1
    2.3 Oram is on fire, the incutter to follow up the away-goer, MJ isn't expecting it and is surprised by the movement, rapped on the pads in front, umpire raises the finger, Oram is jubilant, Wayamba is big trouble, MJ was struck above the knee roll, some doubt over the height there 19/2
    4.3 Kandamby! he may not look the most fit of players but he didn't a pretty good job racing across from mid-on to take the catch to dismiss Jayasuriya, who was looking to launch that to the long-on boundary but top-edged that Oram delivery, Wayamba lose their fourth, is this game over already? 23/4
    4.4 Oram can't do a thing wrong! he's off on a celebratory run and his team-mates take a while to catch up, a short ball that Razzaq looked to slam over the leg side, edges it through to the keeper, and Oram's dream tournament continues 23/5
    5.1 Umar Gul joins the party, the celebrated Wayamba are resembling a pack of cards here, Weeraratne inside-edges Gul's first delivery on to the stumps and Wayamba are 23 for 6! 23/6

    6 no matter, the seventh is here now, short of length ball outside off, angling away from the batsman, who boldly decided to go for the pull instead of looking to hit through the off, another edge, this one swirls to backward point, can Wayamba at least last till 10 overs? shambolic performance this 27/7
    19.2 the partnership is over, more importantly that was a dot ball, surely Uva are safe now, Udana's superb hand of 42 is over as he holes out to long-off, his previous highest in T20s was 13, Udana walks away distraught, at least Mahmood has the strike 147/8
