de Lange to Paranavitana, OUT, that's his debut wicket! He gets him to come forward to a fuller delivery outside off, Tharanga can't resist the drive, gets a thick outside edge to Boucher, no need to confirm that with the umpire, set him up nicely after bowling a series of short deliveries

NT Paranavitana c †Boucher b de Lange 12 (38m 29b 1x4 0x6) SR: 41.37

Sri Lanka 35/1   TM Dilshan 23* (25b 3x4)   M de Lange 2-0-4-1

de Lange to Sangakkara, OUT, and he's got another left-hander! Marchant is on a roll, bowled in the channel just outside the off stump and Sangakkara had no option but to play at it, poked his bat out and the thin edge flew to Boucher, credit to the bowler for that one

KC Sangakkara c †Boucher b de Lange 0 (7m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 47/2   TM Dilshan 31* (30b 4x4)   M de Lange 2.2-0-5-2

Imran Tahir to Dilshan, OUT, how unnecessary was that? Tahir gets a wicket off his worst ball of the morning, full toss down the leg side, Dilshan got down on his knee and tried to slog it over fine leg but ended up finding Morkel a few yards in front of the rope, he could have placed that down to square leg or somewhere else

TM Dilshan c Morkel b Imran Tahir 47 (101m 69b 6x4 0x6) SR: 68.11

Sri Lanka 84/3   DPMD Jayawardene 20* (41b 1x4 1x6)   Imran Tahir 4.3-0-24-1

Morkel to Jayawardene, OUT, the off stump is pegged back! Morkel bends the ball back in off the pitch, Jayawardene tires to work it straighter and plays down the wrong line, big gap between pad and bat and the off stump is pushed back, Jayawardene waits to see if the bowler overstepped, all well for the bowler

DPMD Jayawardene b Morkel 31 (81m 58b 3x4 1x6) SR: 53.44

Sri Lanka 117/4   TT Samaraweera 18* (19b 3x4)   M Morkel 6.3-0-22-1

de Lange to Mathews, OUT, he just plucked that from nowhere! de Lange can't believe what he's pulled off, he fires in a reverse swinging full toss, Mathews pushes at the ball off the toe of the bat and spoons it quickly to the bowler's right, de Lange gets his right hand out and it sticks

AD Mathews c & b de Lange 30 (66m 51b 5x4 0x6) SR: 58.82

Sri Lanka 162/5   TT Samaraweera 31* (60b 5x4)   M de Lange 9.3-1-30-3

Morkel to Chandimal, OUT, against the run of play! Chandimal has himself to blame for that, Morkel bowled it as wide as he could outside off and Chandimal somehow fell for the trap, stood at the crease and reached out as far as he could, thin edge and he was gone

LD Chandimal c †Boucher b Morkel 58 (141m 86b 7x4 0x6) SR: 67.44

Sri Lanka 273/6   TT Samaraweera 82* (198b 10x4)   M Morkel 15.3-1-54-2

de Lange to Perera, OUT, I don't understand this but why didn't Samaraweera farm the strike in the last over? A shaky Perera fends off a short delivery on the body but ends up lobbing it towards Amla at backward short-leg

NLTC Perera c Amla b de Lange 12 (35m 28b 2x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

Sri Lanka 289/7   TT Samaraweera 86* (218b 10x4)   M de Lange 16.3-2-60-4

de Lange to Herath, OUT, And de Lange carries on with the tradition this year of debutants taking five-wicket hauls! Comes round the wicket and bangs it in short, Herath tries to club it to the on side but skies the pull, Boucher runs forward and takes it easily

HMRKB Herath c †Boucher b de Lange 30 (73m 54b 4x4 0x6) SR: 55.55

Sri Lanka 335/8   TT Samaraweera 101* (265b 11x4)   M de Lange 22.1-3-79-5

de Lange to Welegedara, OUT, Wicket No.6 is a brute of a delivery! Too much for any batsman, let alone a tailender, rising on the body and heading towards the helmet, he takes his eyes off the ball as he tries to fend it, lobs off the shoulder of the bat and lobs to Amla at short leg

UWMBCA Welegedara c Amla b de Lange 2 (4m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Sri Lanka 337/9   TT Samaraweera 101* (265b 11x4)   M de Lange 22.5-3-81-6

de Lange to Samaraweera, OUT, would you believe it he's holed out to deep cover! The field is spread out to give him the single, makes room and de Lange pitched it fuller, scoops it straight to Prince in the deep, timed it too well and its the best bowling figures by a debutant in 2011

TT Samaraweera c Prince b de Lange 102 (356m 269b 11x4 0x6) SR: 37.91

Sri Lanka 338/10   CRD Fernando 0* (5b)   M de Lange 23.2-3-81-7
