    3.2 gone! Holder gets the breakthrough. Short ball outside off, nips in to cramp de Silva as he tries to pull. Gets an inside-edge and Hope catches it diving to his left 7/1
    4.3 on the pads, and that's an awful mix-up! Clips it to square leg, and Kusal takes off at the non-striker's end, unnecessarily. It was hit straight to Charles, who turns, throws at the bowler's end, and hits his target with the batsman a foot short of his crease. Looks like Dickwella took a couple of steps out as well, and then sent his partner back 8/2
    15.3 short ball does the trick. It was banged in at some pace - 145.3 kph - and Dickwella, seeing that it's on the channel outside off, looks to lean back and play the ramp shot. Just tried to help it along its way, but hits it straight to Sulieman Benn at third man who settles under it comfortably 51/4
    5.6 poor shot, and Holder strikes with a clever change of line and length. Fuller, wider, enticed the drive away from the body, and second slip takes the thick edge with two hands, over his head. Should probably not have gone after it considering how consistently Holder was getting the ball to swing away late 16/3
    21.5 what a soft dismissal! Tharanga will cringe looking at that dismissal for a long time. It was a short ball and Tharanga looks for a pull shot but the ball stops on him and he goes through with the shot early as a result. Gets a leading edge that lobs up towards the bowler and Nurse takes it easily. And that's the end of Tharanga's pained stay 64/5
    25.3 It was a pitched up ball around off and Gunaratne comes on to the front foot and flicks expecting it to turn in. But the ball doesn't turn as much, contrary to his expectations and he is struck in front of off. Marais Erasmus has a long, hard look at it before raising his finger. Gunaratne asks for a review, but to no avail as replays show the ball would have crashed into middle and leg. That looked plumb from the moment of impact and Sri Lanka are unravelling here 79/6
    40.6 slower ball accounts for Jayasuriya. It was back of a length and Jayasuriya was looking to just tuck it to the leg side for a quick single but he gets a top-edge instead and the ball lobs towards midwicket where it is easily held 151/8
    37.6 comes down the track and looks to go big over long-off. It was on a length and Pathirana tries to heave it with the turn. But he gets it off the splice of the bat and gets beaten by the flight too as the ball lobs towards long-off where Lewis settles under it 139/7
    43.1 full, follows Kulasekara as he steps away from the stumps to make himself room. He shovels this up towards long-on, where Lewis takes an excellent catch to complete victory, running to his right and then tumbling over 165/10
    41.5 low full toss at 145 kph. Lakmal looks to clip it away to the leg side, but that was extremely quick and he is hurried, ends up getting an inside edge and the ball goes off the pad straight into the stumps 160/9
