View dismissal WU Tharanga b Sidebottom 15 24 21 1 0 71.42
5.5 straight, Tharanga once more plays down the wrong line with not much foot movement, the ball finds a big gap between bat and pad and pins back the off stump 22/1
View dismissal ST Jayasuriya c Swann b Sidebottom 11 39 24 1 0 45.83
9.2 short, Jayasuriya pulls but gets cramped and can't keep it down, Swann sprints in from deep backward square leg and slides into the catch, taking it a couple of inches above the turf 33/2
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c †Mustard b Broad 9 41 25 0 0 36.00
14.1 and he's walked! How extraordinary. Wide of the off stump, Sangakkara cut and missed, the ball flying through to Mustard who didn't appeal. And nor did Broad...but Sangakkara tucked his bat under his arm and marched off. A poor piece of cricket. It was the thinnest of edges, and no England player appealed, yet Sangakkara marched off to cause confused (albeit delighted) expressions from England's fielders 42/4
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* c Collingwood b Broad 2 15 8 0 0 25.00
12.1 got him! Terrible shot from Jayawardene. A loosener from Broad, dropping it short and wide but Jayawardene flayed his bat at it without keeping it down, the ball flying straight to Paul Collingwood at point who took it comfortably at face height 37/3
View dismissal LPC Silva c †Mustard b Swann 11 53 29 0 0 37.93
22.4 what a stroke of fortune for Swann, and a neat piece of keeping from Mustard. Silva tried to sweep from outside the off stump, got a bottom edge onto his boot which flew to Mustard's right who stuck out his right paw to take a slick catch 85/5
View dismissal TM Dilshan c Collingwood b Swann 70 117 84 6 0 83.33
40.1 and he has his fourth wicket, Dilshan caught in two minds, and he scoops a half volley gently to Collingwood at midwicket 164/9
View dismissal J Mubarak c & b Swann 6 8 10 0 1 60.00
24.5 got him this time! Tossed up by Swann to invite him down the pitch, Mubarak is beaten by the lack of pace and succeeds only in chipping it straight back to the bowler. A soft wicket, but a very clever piece of bowling 93/6
View dismissal MF Maharoof c & b Swann 7 14 13 0 0 53.84
28.1 another excellent return catch from Swann. Tossed up and Maharoof simply chipped it straight back to Swann who took it an inch or two from the ground 106/7
View dismissal WPUJC Vaas run out (Bopara/Swann) 4 16 10 0 0 40.00
32.1 Swann to Dilshan, back, waits and cuts the ball oh-so-late ... Dilshan comes back for the second, taking on Bopara's throw from deep point, but the return is fired in at the bowler's end, right to the top of the stumps on the bounce, Swann removes the bails with Vaas short despite a full-length dive 118/8
View dismissal CRD Fernando c Collingwood b Sidebottom 11 39 18 0 0 61.11
41.1 yup ... Fernando swings at a shortish ball, had he middled it, it would have headed over midwicket ... he didn't and it looped softly off a top edge to Collingwood at point 164/10

View dismissal AN Cook c †Sangakkara b Vaas 0 9 7 0 0 0.00
2.1 excellent ball, drawing Cook into a defensive poke but he never moved his feet. A full delivery outside his off-stump, it cut away at the last moment and the keeper took a comfortable catch to his left 5/1
View dismissal P Mustard b Maharoof 14 23 15 3 0 93.33
5.2 bowled him! Unlucky for Mustard who tried to pull but it wasn't quite short enough, and the ball rattled off his legs and bobbled onto his leg-stump 23/2
View dismissal IR Bell c Dilshan b Maharoof 16 45 24 3 0 66.66
11.1 catch! A wonderful catch by Dilshan at backward point. Bell climbed into this shorter delivery and appeared to nail it off the back foot, cutting it with a crack of the bat but Dilshan dived to his right and grasped a very fine catch. 47/4
View dismissal KP Pietersen lbw b Maharoof 8 19 10 1 0 80.00
9.1 gone! That's the big one and he can't believe it. Swinging into Pietersen who played all around it, trying to whip it to leg, and it would've taken out his off stump 44/3
View dismissal PD Collingwood* lbw b Jayasuriya 32 97 71 1 0 45.07
31.1 what was in that drink?! Collingwood pushes forward to defend, the ball goes on with arm past the bat, and Asoka De Silva has his hand up in a flash 101/6
View dismissal OA Shah b Jayasuriya 19 69 53 2 0 35.84
27.2 Shah's patience snaps, he gives Jayasuriya the change, misses, and the ball hits the top of his leg stump. He was so far down that he would have been stumped anyhow even if the ball had missed 94/5
View dismissal RS Bopara lbw b Malinga 6 27 12 0 0 50.00
32.5 slower one right up in the blockhole, the speed did for Bopara and the ball hit right in front as he shaped to clip to leg. Kenny Rogers has no doubt and up goes the finger. 107/7
View dismissal GP Swann b Fernando 25 48 37 2 0 67.56
42.3 he's bowled him! Goodnight Graeme. Full, straight and swinging back into Swann who tried to lift him over midwicket and was clean bowled 147/8
