14.5

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, low full toss - the slower ball from Harmison I think. Excellent thinking and this is a very encouraging start indeed from him

14.6

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, FOUR, edged past the slips for four down to third man. Guided, rather than edged - but again, a very good line

16.1

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, short of a length, Jayawardene is compact in defence

16.3

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, FOUR, what a shot that is - the stroke of the day from Jayawardene. The most elegant of drives, on the up, through mid-off for four. Classic

16.4

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, FOUR, that's a poor ball I'm afraid, far too full and Jayawardene creams it through extra cover for four. Beautiful stroke No.2

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, Jayawardene is forward, confidently, and defends with Boycott-like assurance

19.3

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, gentle pace, left alone outside off

Bopara to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, as ever, it's too wide of the off stump to trouble the batsman who leaves it alone

32.3

Panesar to DPMD Jayawardene, 2 runs, this is ridiculous. Yet again it's miles too short and he cuts it

32.4

Panesar to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, tossed up on middle. He drags the batsman forward for once - hurrah

32.5

Panesar to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, Prior says "awwww" - not out of sympathy, like a doting girlfriend might say when you have a cold, but more that Jayawardene was actually made to defend

32.6

36.1

40.1

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, left alone outside off

40.2

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, a play and a miss, very nicely bowled - a tired stroke from Jayawardene. Angled across him, he went for a cover drive but was beaten by the length and ought to have punched that off the back foot

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, touch wider this time, Jayawardene leaves it alone

Sri Lanka 122/2   DPMD Jayawardene 42* (90b 6x4)
42.1

42.2

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, again too wide, again left alone

42.3

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, he's edging closer to that off stump, Sidebottom, but is failing to make Jayawardene play enough

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, clumped to mid-off

46.3

Sidebottom to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, oh well bowled - this zips off the pitch and raps Jayawardene on the back pad. Beaten for pace and for inswing

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, much fuller length but again the batsman can leave this comfortably alone

Bopara to DPMD Jayawardene, OUT, push down off the back foot towards the slips and Dilshan sets off like lightning... but Jayawardene will have to wait to see if he's made his hundred as an underarm shy from Cook could have run him out. There's a long delay in fact because it's such a tight call, and different angles are being called for. And that's out! Poor Dilshan, trying to get Jayawardene to the hundred and misses out on the chance for his own. Incidentally, Rauf wasn't square on to that, he was standing just forward of square leg

TM Dilshan run out 84 (218m 137b 11x4 0x6) SR: 61.31
