    31.4 a long and loud appeal for one which dips low and Gilchrist plays across the line. It hit him in front of middle, having come in from off, and would have gone on to hit the stumps 139/3
    12.5 Amerasinghe breaks through as Hayden, batting out of his crease, once more, comes down the track and is cramped up straight, mishitting on the up out to short midwicket 65/1
    19.5 Jayawardene picks up a sharp chance at first slip, Ponting opening the face and running down to his opposing captain who snaps it up low, good catch 88/2

    36.4 gone this time, Symonds flashes hard to extra cover where Kapugedera takes a great catch at head height, and it was travelling 160/4
    41.4 short ball, wide outside off and Hussey comes out of his crease, and cuts back into the hands of Dilshan at backward point. It was straight to him, but stroked hard so a good catch 190/5
    49.4 outside off, swing away, and the batsman comes out of his crease, but it's scooped to backward point where Dilshan does the honours 253/6

    5.1 edged and taken! Bracken strikes, pitching on a full length outside off stump and sucking Tharanga into a very loose drive from the crease, the late swing does the trick and Gilchrist takes the easiest of catches 18/2
    4.6 and thats the end of that! Lee gets his man, pushing tamely at one on a much better length and the inside-edge nips back and rattles off stump 18/1
    19.3 no arguments about that one, a great delivery from Bracken that traps Sangakkara plumb in front of middle, the ball pitching back in and the batsman going to defend on the back foot 74/4
    11.3 down the wicket, rocks back and edges through a would-be booming drive to a short one outside off, the ball cutting away off the seam 57/3
    20.6 Hogg strikes in his first over, the ball grips on off, straightens and takes the feather as Silva tries to defend on the back foot, Gilchrist pouching the sliver 81/5
    23.5 yet another cutter pays dividends, as Dilshan sends a leading edge out to long off where Lee sets himself and has a firm base for taking the catch 93/7
    21.3 Hayden at first slip makes no mistake as the batsman goes for the booming drive away from the body as Bracken fires in another wicket-taking cutter 84/6
    29.1 Lee sees that he's backing away and follows him outside leg, the ball dug out to the legs. A mix-up results as Ponting slides in at mid-on and crashes down the stumps with the ball still in his hand 114/9
    27.3 on off, driven off the inside edge out to mid-on and there's a call for a run-out at the non-striker's end. Malinga loses his bat as the ball comes in from Symonds, but has he made his ground? Tricky one, although he's in the air as the ball hits the stumps. And he's out. 105/8
    31.3 but he gets him this time, his best ODI figures and there's a five-for as the batsman goes to pull again over midwicket, but picks out the fielder instead 125/10
