View dismissal HH Gibbs b Fernando 19 72 41 3 0 46.34
13.6 Fernando strikes again! good length delivery, pitched close to the off stump line and once again the ball nipped back in late, Gibbs is caught on the wrong foot and in the end it was a nothing shot, leaves a yawing gap between bat and pad through which comes the dreadful sound of timber breaking 45/2
View dismissal AJ Hall b Fernando 17 50 31 3 0 54.83
9.6 bowled him! excellent delivery on the length, nips back in from outside the off stump, Hall on the front foot looks to drive through the off side, gets the inside edge and strikes the middle stump, first strike for Sri Lanka and Fernando. 32/1
View dismissal JA Rudolph c †HAPW Jayawardene b Maharoof 29 72 52 5 0 55.76

View dismissal HM Amla st †HAPW Jayawardene b Muralitharan 19 96 64 0 0 29.68
36.6 lovely delivery tossed up, the doosra, Amla reads it wrong, comes down the track and looks to drive through the on side, beats his bat, Prasanna Jayawardene fumbles the ball slightly and then removes the bails, Amla was a long way off the crease to get back. 112/5

View dismissal AB de Villiers c Kapugedera b Muralitharan 65 97 72 8 0 90.27
50.2 all over! done and dusted in 50.2 overs - flatter trajectory, a genuine off-break, de Villiers comes down the track and lofts it away in the air towards deep midwicket, more of a chip shot than a full blooded hoick, Kapugedera in the deep makes no mistake 169/10
View dismissal MV Boucher c Jayasuriya b Muralitharan 4 20 9 0 0 44.44

View dismissal A Nel lbw b Fernando 0 6 2 0 0 0.00
45.5 Another nail goes in! slightly short and coming in with the angle, too good a delivery for Nel, he fails to get bat on ball and is caught plumb in front of the stumps. 151/8
View dismissal DW Steyn b Fernando 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
45.6 Dale Steyn goes for a duck! good length delivery, again the one that nips back in, Steyn was clueless, shoulders arms and the ball crashes into the off stump - as easy as it gets 151/9
