5.1

Johnson to Jayawardene, FOUR, Toying around with the bowlers here... Another length ball, outside off, and he drives it with an open face, deliberately over point

5.2

Johnson to Jayawardene, FOUR, this is even better because this is along the ground, and pierces the five-men cover ring. Slightly slower delivery, waits for it, and cuts it in front of square, between cover and extra cover

5.3

Johnson to Jayawardene, FOUR, sensational stuff, and yet not a hint of violence. Punches this on the up, and bisects cover and extra cover. Those five men can just stand and watch

5.4

Sri Lanka 145/7   DPMD Jayawardene 82* (60b 11x4 1x6)

19.1

Lee to Jayawardene, 1 no ball, perhaps that's why I am not the captain.. this is a high full toss, Mahela opens the face on it, and hits it straight down short third man's throat. Mahela is in no hurry to walk off, he wants the height of this full toss checked. Replays suggest this is slightly higher than his waits, but his legs are bent a bit. And hang on. They have called this a no-ball. Come on umpires, give the bowlers some leeway

19.1

Lee to Jayawardene, FOUR, and here salt enters the wounds... length ball on the pads, and he has flicked it square for four
