    13.5 the angle has done the trick, de Silva has given a catch straight to mid-on! Back of length from Faulkner and angling in, de Silva didn't move much and then punched it straight to Starc at chest height. De Silva's disappointed with himself as Faulkner punched the air twice! 73/1
    14.5 bowled around his legs! The second time he has attempted that shot even though the ball is headed for the stumps. This flatter delivery pitched on leg, he looks to sweep it fine by exposing his leg stump and the ball goes straight to rattle the leg sutmp as Gunathilaka misses 77/2
    23.5 edged and gone! Mendis fishes at an inviting length and feathers one through. A soft dismissal after looking so good through his innings. Hastings jumps wide of the crease and bowls one on a good length outside off, Mendis' feet are rooted in the crease but he still wafts at that, gets a thin edge which is gleefully accepted by Wade 121/4
    15.2 another one, Starc has struck indeed and SL lose their third in 10 balls! He banged it in short again, Chandimal looked to guide the ball fine this time by going on his toes but he only feathers an outside edge to the keeper! Replays show it was the glove actually, the pace and bounce did him! 78/3
    26.5 beautifully bowled. Lots of loop and flight outside off, Tharanga drives early and away from his body, the ball stops in the surface and spins a touch. Tharanga lobs an easy catch to point off the outside half of his bat. Poor shot, but induced by some clever change in pace 129/5
    30.6 Kusal reviews immediately, umpire Palliyaguruge gives him. Looked like an inside edge. Only decision for the umpire to make is if there is some bat. Seems like there is some bat. Flat on middle, this one doesn't spin. Kusal comes forward but the ball strikes the pad via the bat, right in front of off. Yes, big edge. This should be overturned. All reds on ball-tracking. Wait, this is not overturned. Kusal shakes his head as he walks off. Baffling call, big deviation as the ball struck the pad. Third umpire Michael Gough thought otherwise, may have thought there isn't enough evidence to overturn the decision but there sure was to my eyes. There is no RTS in this series or hotspot. 145/6

    34.5 that's the straighter one and Shanaka is bowled! The batsman made a tiny bit of room, playing for the turn as the ball pitched on off, he stayed back to cut it but missed as the ball zipped through to hit off 165/7
    40.2 can't clear mid-off and SL are bowled out for 195! Pitched up, he lofts the ball on the off side but doesn't get enough and Faulkner takes a couple of steps back to catch that easily 195/10
    37.4 the angle does it again, off stump knocked over! That one zipped through the defence as Dilruwan looked to defend it in front of off, the ball nipped in sharply from outside off and beat the outside edge to hit the stump 184/8
    37.5 that's a yorker at 147kmh and whams into the middle stump! The angle, the speed, the length...all come together to push Lakmal on the back foot, he tries to block the ball but it beats him completely to disturb the bottom of middle stump 184/9

    40.6 throws his head back in disgust. Warner is not happy at all. He has just hit back a nothing delivery to the bowler. End of a superlative knock though. Lots of flight outside off, Warner looks to drive through cover but the ball is too full, he ends up skewing the ball back off the inside half. 189/5
    3.2 massive appeal, umpire Dar says no, Chandimal chooses to review. Looks very close to the glove. Yes, definitely glove I'd say. Flat delivery on off, Wade got low and looked to sweep. The wicketkeeper got across and collected the opportunity. The decision is overturned, enough evidence as the glove brushed the ball. Good take. 11/1
    5.5 gone! Khawaja is beaten in pace and flight. The crowd goes wild. Tossed up outside off, Khawaja runs down and looks to flick through midwicket, but the ball spins and takes his leading edge as the face of the bat closes. Takes the edge and carries to cover point. A beautiful dismissal, not a great shot either. Did not get to the pitch, didn't adjust 25/2
    32.4 a strong appeal, the finger goes up and the crowd has been shaken alive. But hang on, Bailey has reviewed it! It was pretty full around leg, Bailey swept and missed and took it low on his front pad. Looks like there's no edge, all depends on where the ball pitched. Here comes ball-tracking - it has pitched in line, hit in line and 'umpire's call' for hitting the stumps. So umpire Palliyaguruge's decision stays 157/3
    38.1 oh no. He has picked out long-on. Muttering away under his breath. What a waste of a wicket. A full toss on middle, Head runs to the ball and drills it straight to the fielder. The bat face may have just turned in his hands causing him to pick out the fielder 179/4
