Ekanayake to Mendis, 2 runs, OUT, on the middle stump and that has been slogged over mid-wicket for a biggie, did not quite connect it enough to carry it over, the fielder did well at the fence to stop it from getting to the fence, the batsman in the meantime went for the third run, by which time the fielder had recovered well, throws it down to the striker's end, easily collected and stumps are broken, that is out by quite a distance!

RR Rossouw run out 44 (37b 3x4 2x6) SR: 118.91

Naved-ul-Hasan to Mendis, 2 runs, full-toss outside the off stump, he was trying to slog it over mid-wicket, gets the outside edge of the bat, the extra-cover and the long-off fielder both had a chance but both played it safe and they get a couple
