    6.1 the pressure of the dot balls tells, Porterfield rocks back in the crease and pulls the ball in the air towards mid-on. Mathews jumps in the air and takes an excellent catch 26/1
    8.4 and another wicket goes down, Stirling sees a little bit of width and flashes his bat at the ball. It bounced a little bit more then he expected and gets a thin edge through to the keeper 39/2
    11.1 Ireland are falling apart here, its outside off-stump and Joyce guides the ball into Gunathilaka's hands at point. Was almost as if it was catching practise 41/3
    21.2 Anderson swings the ball into the legside, Mendis runs forward and takes an easy catch 94/5
    15.1 what an awful shot from O'Brien, comes down the pitch and hits the ball straight to Maharoof at mid-on. Not the type of shot that Ireland needed at that point 71/4
    34.2 its wide outside off-stump and Poynter looks to help it on its way. It goes high in the air, Gunathilaka gets underneath it and takes a comfortable catch. 157/7
    25.1 lovely delivery from Prasanna, Wilson goes to defend the ball forward and the ball turns past his bat and knocks off the bails. Another one bites the dust. 112/6
    45 well we knew that it couldn't last for long. McBrine tries to pull the ball over the mid-wicket boundary again. It goes higher in the air and Mendis comes in off the boundary and takes the catch. Sri Lanka wins! 241/10
    37 McCarthy comes down the pitch and misses the ball. Gunathilaka hits the stumps and that's another wicket for Sri Lanka 173/8
    38.4 what a lovely catch from Mathews, Murtagh pulls the ball towards mid-on. Mathews dives to his left and takes an excellent catch 187/9
