Oram to Smith,
down the track and this is gone, Smith is dismissed for a duck! Not too much pace on that, gave him the charge, gets the toe end of the bat and it loops up to the mid-on fielder for a simple catch, one down for none.
DLR Smith c McDonald b Oram 0 (4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00
Oram to Karunaratne,
gone, lbw! The second wicket's down but was that out? Height an issue? Outside the leg-stump? Hit the bat before the pad? We will soon have a look at the replays, but one thing's certain, the batsman's been declared out and Basnahira are two down!
FDM Karunaratne lbw b Oram 9 (10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 90.00
Oram to Hodge,
cut away and caught! That was short and sat up there to hit, hit he did but straight to the third-man fielder and the winners from yesterday are three down for next to nothing!
BJ Hodge c Prasanna b Oram 2 (7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 28.57
Fernando to Mendis,
pitched right up to the bat and holed out! An interesting over this, wides, fours and now a wicket, it was fuller on the off stump and Mendis tried to go over mid-off, did not get sufficient elevation on that one and that results in a simple catch for the fielder
BMAJ Mendis c McDonald b Fernando 34 (28b 2x4 1x6) SR: 121.42
Umar Gul to Dilshan,
bowled him, off a slower one! Excellent over culminates with the wicket of Dilshan, fuller ones, bouncer and then a slower ball that sends the bail flying, end of a decent, but slightly subdued effort from Dilshan
TM Dilshan b Umar Gul 56 (48b 5x4 0x6) SR: 116.66
Fernando to de Saram,
gone, shorter and slower and caught at mid-on! That wasn't timed too well and it loops up gently to McDonald at mid-off for a simple catch, six down now
SI de Saram c McDonald b Fernando 2 (3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66
Fernando to Herath,
outside the off stump, slices it away to the deep point region where the fielder takes an easy catch, seven down but Borgas' back on strike
HMRKB Herath c Shoaib Malik b Fernando 3 (6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00
Fernando to Borgas,
shorter ball and this has been pulled away to the same fielder, this time at deep square-leg, eight down and Fernando is on a hat-trick!
CJ Borgas c Shoaib Malik b Fernando 19 (12b 1x4 1x6) SR: 158.33
Fernando to Jayaratne,
goes for a slog and Fernando gets another wicket, caught at mid-wicket to give the bowler his fifth!
PLM Jayaratne c McDonald b Fernando 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00
