    4.6 edged, he has three! That's some ordinary batting from Dickwella, but he was rattled by Ngidi's pace. A short-of-a-length ball outside off, he tries to flay it through the off side and gets a top edge to the keeper 35/3
    2.1 finds square leg! Short of a length, he goes for the pull, can't get the elevation or keep it down, was cramped for room, and it's a smart, low catch by Miller just in front of square 11/1
    2.3 through him! Two wickets in three balls. The crowd are alive. A very poor shot from Mendis, not needed at all, he gives himself room to the leg side, it's a good length ball, and it spears through to take middle stump 15/2
    14.3 edged, that's his fourth! What was Chandimal doing? A length ball outside off and he has a horrid hack at it, just provides a thin edge. Wasteful. 86/4

    15.5 and he's been given lbw! A googly, beats the inside edge and after a reasonably long wait the finger goes up 93/5
    17.1 drags down his first ball, but it's pulled down deep square-leg's throat! Tahir holds on very near the boundary. Good awareness of where his feet were. 97/6
    18.4 picks out mid-on! This game isn't over yet. A length ball, outside off, he tried to drag it over the leg side but could only lob it do the man who was up inside the circle. Came right off the toe of the bat 105/7
