0.2

Sidebottom to Jayasuriya, no run, fuller ... well, a full toss ... Jayasuriya watches and pushes gently to mid-off

0.3

Sidebottom to Jayasuriya, FOUR, half volley this time and crisply driven to the right of mid-off, the ball races away over the dry grass

0.4

Sidebottom to Jayasuriya, no run, much wider, a sniff of swing, Jayasuriya has a swing and a miss which will encourage Sidebottom

0.5

Sidebottom to Jayasuriya, 1 run, full again, clipped off his toes into Cook's boot at short leg, a shout of catch it but no way was that a chance, the ball bobbles into the leg side and that allows a single

Sri Lanka 6/0   ST Jayasuriya 5* (4b 1x4)
1.1

Hoggard to Jayasuriya, no run, right up in the blockhole, not much sign of movement in the air, kept out with ease

1.2

Hoggard to Jayasuriya, FOUR, wide and a slashing drive through mid-off, Jayasuriya really lays into that and it's four all the way

1.3

Hoggard to Jayasuriya, 1 run, sweetly clipped off his toes behind square on the on side, the man at long leg trundles round to mop up

Sri Lanka 11/0   ST Jayasuriya 10* (7b 2x4)
2.1

Sidebottom to Jayasuriya, no run, outside the off stump, Jayasuriya not tempted ... for now

2.2

Sidebottom to Jayasuriya, no run, pushed into the off side off the back foot

2.3

Sidebottom to Jayasuriya, no run, angled into Jayasuriya who is caught back in the crease and the ball smacks into his pads ... far too high but encouraging for Sidebottom

2.4

Sidebottom to Jayasuriya, no run, swinging away from the left hander, no shot offered

2.5

Sidebottom to Jayasuriya, OUT, a loose drive to a wide ball, Jayasuriya doesn't get remotely over the shot and he is excellently caught diving to his right by Kevin Pietersen at short cover. It was at a nice height but he had to react quickly.

ST Jayasuriya c Pietersen b Sidebottom 10 (12m 12b 2x4 0x6) SR: 83.33

Sri Lanka 11/1   ST Jayasuriya 10 (12b 2x4)
