    4.6 has the pressure told? Indeed it has! He kept picking out the fielders. Cut into the covers again, Charles quickly onto it. A good throw to the keeper and, yes, he's well short 32/2
    3.1 and strikes first ball! Boy, that looked a bit leg-side at first glance but he's gone lbw. Full, angling into the pads, Dilshan aims through the leg side but misses. The umpire takes a long time but eventually the finger goes up. Oh dear, that's missing by a long way. 20/1
    6.1 and he strikes! Thirimanne has picked out point. Went for the drive, but could only spoon the ball into the off side. Came off the thick outer part of the bat 41/3
    8.1 he strikes again! Sri Lanka losing their heads with the pressure being applied. This was a head-up charge down the pitch, aimed his swing to the leg side. Missed. Ramdin had loads of time 47/4
    16.1 what's happened there? This is extraordinary. It's a loopy full toss slower ball, it appears that Mathews loses it, is trying to duck out of the line and the ball deflects off his top edge to Ramdin. They are checking for the height. Mathews is down on his back knee by the time the ball hits his top edge. The third umpire has to consider what it would be in Mathews normal stance. And the umpire calls it a fair delivery on height 91/6
    8.4 taken at slip! Brilliant stuff from Badree, and Sammy for having the slip. He missed the first two, but edged his third. Pushing forward outside off and a neat snaffle to his left by Gayle 47/5
    19.5 another low full toss and this time he gets clubbed down the throat of long on 121/9
    18.5 you miss, I hit...he swings to the leg side against a length delivery and loses his leg stump. Was a slower delivery, did him for lack of pace 116/7
    19.4 excellent work by Bravo from his follow through! A slower ball took Herath's pads and bobbled to the off side, Bravo changed directed, picked up, turned and threw down the non-striker's stumps. Doesn't even go to the third umpire 121/8
