Watson to Tharanga, FOUR, what a shot, Tharanga is middling them and they are racing past the infield on this outfield, just pushes a length just outside off stump and it zooms past covers

6.2

Watson to Tharanga, FOUR, a bit more bottom hand on this one, same result, gets a length ball off the inner half past Watson and mid on drives, but he didn't have much of a chance

6.3

Watson to Tharanga, no run, steered wide of point from the crease

6.4

Watson to Tharanga, no run, slows it down, that will be key on this wicket now and then, Tharanga goes back in the crease and blocks towards cover

Watson to Tharanga, no run, tries to shuffle and work one from middle and leg past short fine leg but cannot beat the man

8.1

Watson to Dilshan, FOUR, this time Dilshan will get the pull to the boundary, he had been hurried by Lee's pace earlier on a few occasions, Watson's short ball comes on a touch slower and he gets on top of it and cracks it past the man in the deep to the midwicket boundary

8.2

Watson to Dilshan, no run, blocks a fuller one on the off side

8.3

Watson to Dilshan, no run, looks to have a go at a length ball from the back foot, sees it head for the stumps and blocks back to the bowler

8.4

Watson to Dilshan, no run, Dilshan is moving about in the crease, looking for the runs all the time, here he drives a length ball off the front foot, straight to mid off

8.5

Watson to Dilshan, 1 leg bye, gets the single now, Watson goes with the angle on the pads and he trickles it square on the leg side

8.6

Watson to Tharanga, no run, good line to Tharanga, cramping him for room with one around middle, defended from the crease

Sri Lanka 49/0   SR Watson 2-0-12-0
