    20.6 Soft, soft dismissal. One-handed return catch, Kraigg Brathwaite provides WI with the breakthrough. Pushed through on middle and leg from around the wicket. No turn. De Silva aims a back-foot punch, but the ball stops on him. He checks his shot and simply lobs it in the air to the right of the bowler. Kraigg stretches his right hand and plucks it out. Maiden ODI wicket for him. De Silva inspects the toe end of the bat as he exits 123/2
    2.4 poor shot. Perera goes for a flick across the line and loses his stumps. It was full and pushed across. Perera looked to flick it but the away angle was always going to make that a risky shot. It shapes across late as well and Perera makes no contact with the ball which crashes into and splinters his off-stump 18/1
    38.2 looks to flick with the angle and gets rapped on the pads. Given out by umpire Illingworth. It was full and angling in after being fired from wide of the crease. Dickwella gets across but a long way and tries to flick it to the leg side. But he falls over slightly due to the extra yard he moves across and ends up leaving a big gap between bat and pad as the ball hits him in front of middle. Dickwella chooses to review it, but replays confirm that the angle would have taken the ball straight into middle and leg. And Dickwella will have to wait for another day for his first ODI century 230/3
    43.3 Mendis pays the price for playing away from the body, pushed through quicker, on a length, outside off. There is a lot of width on offer and Mendis tries to use the pace and run it down to third man by opening he face of his bat. He had to reach out for it and gets an outside edge that is snaffled by the wicketkeeper. Mendis is livid with himself and another Sri Lanka batsman misses out on a century. Would have been a wide had he left it 277/5
    42.1 bowled off the inside edge. It was a very full ball outside off, a near-yorker on the fourth or fifth stump channel, Jayasuriya tries to jam his bat down and squeeze it out into the off side but ends up dragging it back on to the stumps 258/4
    49.6 short ball, no pace again, just 116kph and Tharanga gets a top-edge on the pull as the ball stops on him. He lobs it to square leg where Ashley Nurse runs back a few steps before snaffling it 330/7
    45.4 looks to heave one over midwicket but picks out the fielder there. It was on a length and in the slot outside off but Gunaratne doesn't manage to get any kind of timing on that one 291/6

    7.6 Holes out to mid-off. Tharanga collects the overhead catch. Slower cutter outside off, Charles waits and drills it hard. But doesn't keep it down. Sri Lanka find some breathing space after a bruising opening stand 63/1
    40.3 Holder is simply ball-watching, horrible mix-up, and it results in the third run-out of the innings. Nonetheless, Lewis elicits a standing ovation for his maiden ODI hundred. Full roller on off, jabbing drive to the left of mid-off. Mendis moves swiftly to his left and releases the ball to the keeper. Lewis, who is suffering from cramps, ventures halfway down the pitch. Holder, though, having turned his back to Lewis, is only watching the ball. Lewis if forced to undo his steps. Lewis, ultimately, gave up, caught miles short. Dickwella does the rest 262/6
    21.3 inside edge and bowled. That was one of those off-cutters that spun back in like an off-break. Brathwaite has no idea that the ball would jag back in that sharply and does not account for the turn. Leans across to meet the pitch of this fullish delivery and tries to drive but the ball spins in and takes the inside edge and takes the bails off. It momentarily looked like a caught behind as the wicketkeeper held the catch, but it took off the bails first 133/2
    29.4 shuffles across to cover his stumps before nudging this fuller ball on leg stump to the leg side, between deep midwicket and long-on. Lewis calls for the seocnd and Pradeep in the deep runs across and gathers the ball before firing a direct hit at the non-striker's end where Hope is out by a huge distance, as replays show 175/3
    32.2 oh, gone! That seemed to come out of the blue. Nobody thought for a second that that was gone. Even Sri Lanka are a little surprised here. It was a short of a length ball that was whipped towards mid-on with a cross bat by Lewis. Carter wanted a run, but Lewis sin't interested and sends him back. But the fielder, who is slightly deep, comes in in a jiffy, swoops down and fires a direct throw. Carter is casual in getting back to the crease and is gone by a surprisingly big distance 198/4
    35.5 yorker angling down leg and it's given. It seems like it was heading down leg but umpire Illingworth thinks it is hitting. It was full and dips in late on the batsman as he tries to clip it away to the leg side. Gets hit on the back boot and Powell goes for the review straightaway. There was no bat involved there. Replays show that the ball would have hit the leg stump flush, so good decision 224/5

    47.2 big wicket for Kulasekara, the middle stump is tilted back. Carlos departs. The chase is getting tighter. Very full on middle, not an accurate yorker, swings in. Carlos winds up for a giant goftswing. Big backlift. The bat has to travel a long way from there. He can't connect and Kulasekara hits the middle stump 307/7
    48.2 yorker shading just outside the leg stump, wild swing and a miss. Has Nurse inside-edged it onto the thigh pad, before the keeper collected it? Dickwella goes up for an appeal. The umpires Illingworth and Matibiri converge and the soft signal is out. Holder isn't amused. Lakmal's front foot is fine. Nurse attempts a cross-batted slog, having dropped to one knee. Nicks it onto the back thigh, replays confirm it; I can spot the deflection. TV umpire Gough rules Nurse out after much deliberation. Clean catch from Dickwella behind the stumps. Terrific bowling from SL's seamers under pressure. Nurse drags himself off the field 312/8
    49.5 Holes out to deep cover, running to his right. But they have crossed over. Near yorker, very, very full and outside off. Benn carves it in the air.Terrific take under pressure from de Silva 328/9
