45.3

Harmison to Silva, no run, nudged to leg. A good short ball

45.4

Harmison to Silva, no run, a bouncer again but this hardly gets up at all, and the batsman sways out of the way. That really wasn't too far away from his off stump

45.5

Harmison to Silva, no run, excellent delivery, very fine bowling here. Outside the off stump in the corridor of uncertainty, but Silva leaves alone

45.6

Harmison to Silva, no run, good length again, and it takes the splice of the bat - the ball zooting out to gully

Sri Lanka 132/3   LPC Silva 0* (5b)
47.1

Harmison to Silva, no run, extra pace and big bounce here. Harmison is steaming in! Great to see. Left alone by Silva

47.2

Harmison to Silva, no run, a waste down the leg side

47.3

Harmison to Silva, no run, good line in the channel but Silva won't be tempted

47.5

Harmison to Silva, no run, well bowled - pitching it right up, but Silva cracks it back to Harmison

Harmison to Silva, no run, good one which rises up nastily on Silva who defends

Sri Lanka 132/3   LPC Silva 0* (11b)

48.3

Sidebottom to Silva, no run, left alone outside off

48.4

Sidebottom to Silva, no run, a jaffa from Sidebottom! Silva thought it was going to hold its line but it cut away at the last moment, turning him around and beating him all ends up. A cracker

48.5

Sidebottom to Silva, no run, and this one is pushed across him, again he plays and misses

Sri Lanka 133/3   LPC Silva 0* (16b)

50.4

Sidebottom to Silva, no run, good one on middle stump which is firmly blocked out

50.5

Sidebottom to Silva, no run, on the off stump, Silva is forward and defending

50.6

Sidebottom to Silva, no run, he goes for a drive, but with rather concreted feet and can't time it

Sri Lanka 135/3   LPC Silva 0* (21b)
51.5

Harmison to Silva, no run, left alone on length alone, but a good line from Harmison

LPC Silva c Bell b Harmison 1 (36m 26b 0x4 0x6) SR: 3.84
