5.4

7.1

Ekanayake to Borgas, no run, outside the off stump, bit of turn back into the batsman and defended on to the off side

7.2

Ekanayake to Borgas, no run, on the middle, he was going down the track, pushes to mid-wicket and an immediate call of no by the batsman.

7.3

7.4

Ekanayake to Rossouw, SIX, down the ground and smash. Smash, smash, smash. That would have definitely cracked a window pane somewhere behind deep mid-wicket, gone long, long way!

7.6

Ekanayake to Rossouw, 1 run, on the off stump, punched down the ground for a single

16.1

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

16.2

Ekanayake to Karunaratne, FOUR, scooped over the short fine-leg fielder for a four, was pitching on the off stump and on the good length, he heaves it over the fielder this time!

16.3

Ekanayake to Karunaratne, OUT, and he is now out, attempted the same shot, this time it was a full toss and that did not allow him to get it over the short fine-leg fielder, who jumps up to hold a quick, but straight-foward chance

FDM Karunaratne c Maharoof b Ekanayake 4 (2b 1x4 0x6) SR: 200.00

16.4

Ekanayake to Prasad, 1 run, yorker length ball, on the middle stump but well dug-out, driven down to long-off for a single

16.5

Ekanayake to Mendis, 1 run, full-toss on the off stump, tapped to deep cover for a single, they wanted a second but it was far from an achievable proposition

16.6

Ekanayake to Prasad, 1 run, full-toss on the middle-stump, he drives it through the covers, for only a single
