O'Keefe to Jayawardene, FOUR, beautiful, beautiful shot, makes room, goes inside out, all along the ground, between cover and extra cover

Sri Lanka 13/0   SNJ O'Keefe 1-0-11-0

O'Keefe to Sangakkara, 1 run, chips down the track and plays the chip shot towards deep midwicket

11.3

O'Keefe to Jayawardene, FOUR, bee-you-tee-full shot... this is not driving length, and he just chips it non-violently over extra cover. the ball teases both long-off and sweeper-cover, and eludes both

11.4

O'Keefe to Jayawardene, 1 run, clipped off the pads for one

11.5

Sri Lanka 108/3   SNJ O'Keefe 3-0-28-0
