    0.2 got him! Rankin strikes! A good, straight bouncer which Dilshan tried to pull but top edged it to O'Brien's left, who jogged a few metres to swallow an easier skier. Massive wicket! 0/1
    11.4 gone! There's the breakthrough for Ireland, Jayasuriya goes for the sweep and is taken on the inside of the front pad...big appeal from McCallan and Tony Hill raises his finger. Jayasuriya isn't happy and that breaks an important stand 81/3
    3.3 got him now! A brilliant catch by O'Brien standing up to the stumps, Sangakkara beaten by extra bounce and getting a thin edge to the keeper. And he walks! 14/2
    17.6 gone! Cusack strikes again and this is the big one. Jayawardene gives himself room to go through the off side, but he misses and Cusack hits. 128/6
    13.5 another goes, this time the sweep proves the downfall as a top edge goes straight down Rankin's throat at deep square-leg. Silva couldn't have picked out the fielder any better 97/4
    17.3 another wicket at a good time for Ireland, Mubarak went for a pull and gets a big top edge that loops high on the off side, Niall O'Brien calls for it and takes the catch easily 126/5
    19.2 gone! The golden spell from Cusack continues as he castles Mathews, who tried to sweep this fine but missed...Cusack has just stuck to bowling straight and it has worked 139/8
    18.4 and another! Kulasekara drives in the air to long off where John Mooney runs in to take a fine low catch 132/7
    19.5 and another! Murali can only last one ball, has a big swing at a full toss, misses, and Niall O'Brien brings off another superb stumping. His glovework has been outstanding in this tournament 140/9

    9.1 ah, top catch by Sangakkara! He is so sharp with the gloves. A fuller delivery, Porterfield went for a cut but got the thinnest of edges to the keeper 59/1
    14.6 oh well bowled - terrific ball from Mendis, pitching it short and beating O'Brien's charge down the pitch. An easy stumping for Sangakkara 91/4
    13.5 got him this time! White tried to flip him over the leg-side but top-edged it to Sangakkara's left who takes it carefully and safely 87/2
    14.3 got him! That could be curtains for Ireland. Goes for a huge midwicket slog, but top-edges it 89/3

    17.2 gone! That's what he's so good at, full and straight as Johnston tried to give himself room and the ball crashes into the base of middle stump 106/5
    17.3 gone first ball, Malinga on a hat-trick...a low full toss, straight and quick again, Botha doesn't get near it as the stumps are demolished 106/6
    19.3 swift work from Sangakkara as the batsmen try to steal one to the keeper but Cusack was caught well short by the direct hit 129/7
