    4.3 Gilchrist advances down the track to meet one which pitched on middle and went on to hit leg as his vain would-be aerial swish towards midwicket got nowhere near the ball 12/1
    15.1 slower ball deceives Hayden, pushed across him and the batsman was looking to work the ball to leg from outside off, instead popping up to cover where Silva takes a good catch, leaving the ground to take it over his head 39/2
    17.6 great fielding there, a mix-up between the batsmen as Ponting pushes forward and wants the single. Maharoof dives out to his right to stop the ball and as it dribbles away from him he recovers and flings hard to Sangakkara who does the honours 44/3
    42.1 low full toss and Clarke's eyes light up as he drives hard at Murali whose upturned hands pushed it up and then he collects at the second time 144/5
    21.1 a huge call from Sangakkara as he believes Symonds inside-edged just a feather through to him and indeed he has, his feet trapped in the crease as he fended away from his body to the ball which came outside off on a good length 54/4

    46.3 on off, pushed a quicker ball past him, Hopes was bamboozled going for the sweep and then wandered out of his crease, possibly looking for the bye, meanwhile Sangakkara almost apologetically, though he gives no inch, took the bails off 166/6
    47.5 outside off, and that's the catch of the day, cut hard to point and it was travelling low, Dilshan snaps it up sharply around his ankles on the kneel 173/7

    3.1 and he gets another, pitching on the stumps and trapping Perera, not getting far forward as he goes for a flick, in front of about leg stump ... Rudy Koertzen slowly raises the finger to cue cheers from the partisan crowd ... height is a factor on that one ... lets just wait for a replay ... yes, he was hit pretty high but there doesn't seem to be any bat on it ... the ball was traveling down leg stump and was high ... a tough call against Perera 3/2
    1.1 edged and taken! Thats a great start for Clark, getting Jayasuriya flashing at a full one and the thick edge is snapped up by Ponting at second slip 0/1
    24.5 Sangakkara's gone this time with an attempted pull shot which skews high and actually over to the covers where Symonds takes a relatively straightforward catch over his shoulder 64/4
    16.2 pushed across him at a tightish line and a nagging, awkward spit up to Jayawardene who tries to cut but it climbs on him too quickly and he flashes a top edge through to Gilchrist who takes it and throws the ball in the air in celebration 42/3
