11.1

Johnson to Sangakkara, 2 runs, full, on the pads, flicked away fine, and they steal the second. A slightly wide throw from O'Keefe allows them to do so

11.2

Johnson to Sangakkara, 2 runs, on the front foot a touch too early, gets a top edge on a short-of-a-length delivery, but avoids the fielders and gets a couple of runs

11.3

Johnson to Sangakkara, FOUR, oh lovely shot, on the up, high elbow, and over mid-off. That was one for the photographers

11.4

Johnson to Sangakkara, FOUR, another Sanga trademark, walks across the stumps, and flicks this off his toes, over square leg - brings up 50 for the partnership

11.5

Johnson to Sangakkara, 1 wide, wide down the leg side now

11.5

Johnson to Sangakkara, no run, back of a length, around off, the rare defensive shot

11.6

Johnson to Sangakkara, no run, tucked into the on side, doesn't get a run

Sri Lanka 93/2   KC Sangakkara 30* (21b 4x4)
12.3

Watson to Sangakkara, OUT, what a soft dismissal, lot of premeditation in it as he walks down the wicket. The ball is not nearly full enough, and is also the slower one, and Sanga ends up chipping it straight to midwicket

KC Sangakkara c White b Watson 30 (26m 22b 4x4 0x6) SR: 136.36

Sri Lanka 94/3   KC Sangakkara 30 (22b 4x4)
