    13.1 there comes the first wicket! It was a short of length delivery angling across the left hander, Tharanga chooses to throw his bat at that without moving his feet and pays the price as he gets a feather on that one. It settles in keeper's gloves at a nice comfortable height 62/1
    17.5 given right away, Mahela turns back immediately as well, Narine strikes in his first over, tossed up offspinner, Mahela hesitantly forward to try and defend, inside edge, onto pad, and pops up for Ramdin to take a dolly, what a huge strike, he was purring along, Mahela 85/2
    21.6 Narine has removed the big guns, Sanga has loosely pushed this flighted delivery straight to extra cover, just pushed firmly at it from the crease without leaning out 104/3
    31.1 they are falling, softly but surely, now Chandimal picks out midwicket, leaning out and casually turning a full offbreak to the fielder 140/4

    35.3 and Thirimanne picks out the man in the deep, makes room outside leg, gets under a full delivery - an offcutter - and lofts it high and straight to long off 151/5
    37.2 Pollard takes the top edge on the deep square leg boundary, Kula leans back and goes for the pull to a bouncer dug into him, Pollard runs to his right and settles under it, takes it with the top of his fingers, but safely in the end 159/6
    41.1 Narine takes another one, Mendis hits the sweep hard against the turn, but also in the air, and straight to deep square leg 176/7
    44.1 another one down, Herath swings a good length delivery tamely to mid off 190/8
    47.3 the other one follows from Narine, pitches leg, spins away and hits Malinga plumb in front, didn't look as plumb on replays, lots of bounce, but ball tracker has it clipping top of off 205/9
    48.3 and this time he's steered it straight to that man, Bravo digging it short from round the stumps, and Ajantha precision-guided it to wide slip 208/10

    30.6 Gayle departs finally, tried to slog-sweep a tossed up ball out of sight, Chandimal judges the steepling top edge and takes it at forward square leg 181/2
    20.2 Charles ends on a strike-rate of 50, Herath switches over the stumps and tosses it up around leg, Charles makes room and gets on the knee for a slog, and Mahela makes no mistake, running in from long on to take the top edge 115/1

    33.4 Kula's got an lbw appeal ruled in his favour, far closer ones have been turned down today, the tall Pollard was on the walk, and was hit above the knee roll, he cannot believe it, replays show Pollard was also struck outside the line of off, what a howling howler from Pollard's fellow Trinidadian Joel Wilson 193/4
