View dismissal XM Marshall b Mathews 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
0.2 he can play on that's what! Marshall pushes forward tentatively and gets a bottom edge on to his leg stump, the ball dislodges just one bail, what a disappointment for Marshall 1/1

0.4 bowled him! Round his legs that too! Mathews bowled a length ball angling towards leg stump, Simmons moved across his crease, trying to glance towards fine leg, he moved too far across and the ball clipped leg stump, that ball actually clipped the underneath of Simmons' thigh pad and deviated on to the stump 1/2
View dismissal DJ Bravo b Mathews 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
0.6 that's another one bowled! Mathews pitched the ball on a length outside off stump, Bravo was in two minds, undecided between playing or leaving it, he began to push at it before trying to pull his bat out of the way, the ball went off the inside edge to uproot middle stump 1/3
View dismissal S Chanderpaul lbw b Mendis 7 33 15 0 0 46.66
8.2 that's plumb! Chanderpaul moved too far across his stumps and tried to sweep, he missed and Mendis hit him flush on the pad, that ball pitched in line and would have gone on to hit middle, it skidded on to Chanderpaul 43/4
View dismissal RR Sarwan c Mathews b Muralitharan 5 10 12 0 0 41.66
11.1 caught! Sarwan charges Murali and tries to hit the ball out of the ground, he doesn't get to the pitch of the ball and is also cramped for room by Murali's line from round the wicket, he lofts straight to Mathews at long-on who takes an easy catch, he's having a terrific day 64/5
View dismissal KA Pollard st †Sangakkara b Muralitharan 3 9 10 0 0 30.00
13.4 stumped down the leg side! Murali pitches on leg stump and draws Pollard forward, the ball spins past Pollard's pads, leaving him stranded, Sangakkara anticipates the opportunity and moves to his left and whips off the bails in a flash 75/6
View dismissal D Ramdin c Jayawardene b Udana 9 6 5 2 0 180.00
14.5 another slower ball and Ramdin's holed out! He tried to loft it inside out over cover but only managed to give Jayawardene a catch, excellent change of pace 86/7
View dismissal JE Taylor c sub (KMDN Kulasekara) b Muralitharan 2 2 2 0 0 100.00
15.3 caught! Taylor tries to clear the midwicket boundary but doesn't even clear the inner circle, Kulasekara takes the catch 95/8
View dismissal DJG Sammy c Mubarak b Mendis 1 1 4 0 0 25.00
16.2 another one goes, feeble feeble batting, Sammy tries to clear the infield but slices the ball in the air towards point where Mubarak takes the catch, they simply need to give Gayle the strike 97/9
View dismissal SJ Benn b Malinga 0 6 4 0 0 0.00
17.4 Malinga's sealed Sri Lanka's place in the final with a searing yorker that crashes into the stumps, that ball completes a fearsome defence 101/10
