Gunaratne to Borgas, 1 run, outside the off stump, fuller and driven through the covers for a single

6.2

Gunaratne to Rossouw, 1 leg bye, outside edge is it? They are appealing for that one, caught behind, but the umpire's not interested in that, it spun away and the keeper thought he had edged it, not-out given and they are able to go for a single after the keeper threw it up

7.6

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