    42 just like when you are waiting for a bus, when one comes so does a second. Perera swings the ball into the legside, Stirling gets under the ball and takes an easy catch. That's one hell of an innings 309/3
    26.2 drops the ball infront of backward point, Perera calls for the run and Gunathilaka is late setting off. The throw goes to McBrine at the non-strikers end and even though the batsman dives he is out 147/1
    41.4 Prasanna unluckly misses out on his century. The keeper was up to the stump and so couldn't get forward to the ball. Murtagh bowls him. 308/2
    42.2 a hero one day, out for not much the next. Swings the ball down Murtagh's throat at long leg, he isn't going to drop that one. 310/4
    48.2 Maharoof is swinging at everything and clips the ball in the air down McBrine's throat at deep square leg. The Batsmen crossed so Chandimal is on strike. 368/6
    47.2 its wide outside off-stump and Mathews reaches out for it, gets a little tickle through to the keeper. 364/5
    48.3 hits the ball high in the air and Wilson goes running towards square leg. He takes a diving catch and McCarthy is on a hat-trick 368/7
    49.5 tame end for Mendis, chips the ball in the air towards McCarthy at extra cover. Gets his hands in the air and takes a simple catch 377/8

    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
