Sri Lanka 38/1   MG Johnson 1-1-0-0

10.1

Johnson to Sangakkara, 1 run, Johnson traps Sanga on the crease, hits his pad with the late movement in, but not before there is an inside edge. They sneak in the single, Ponting has a shy at the non-striker's end, but it is Sanga who hits the stumps with his dive

10.2

Johnson to Tharanga, OUT, Johnson strikes. His red-hot form continues. Digs this one in short, outside off, Tharanga looks to sway out of the line, but doesn't quite take the gloves out of the way. The ball doesn't quite rise up, and kisses the glove on the way
