33.1

Doherty to Sangakkara, no run, tossed up on off stump and defended.

33.2

Doherty to Sangakkara, FOUR, Sanga at his best, making the spinners look incidental, rather than a part of the story. He skips out, gets to the flight and lofts him over midwicket. Poetic.

33.3

Doherty to Sangakkara, 1 run, and now he goes through the off side, beautifully timed into the covers but he slips again while turning and they get only one.

Doherty to Tharanga, 1 run, Tharanga works a single through the mid-on area for one.

33.5

Doherty to Sangakkara, no run

33.6

Doherty to Sangakkara, 1 run, Sanga skips out again, he's not to the flight and merely chips Doherty over the infield for one more.

Sri Lanka 182/1   XJ Doherty 4-0-27-0
35.1

Doherty to Sangakkara, 1 run, tossed up and breaking in, Sanga nudges through midwicket and they settle for one. Should have been two again.

35.2

Doherty to Tharanga, 1 run, Tharanga backs away and taps a ball turning in, into the covers for one more.

35.3

Doherty to Sangakkara, 2 runs, flighted outside Sanga's off stump and he goes down on a knee to lace it into the covers for two more.

35.4

Doherty to Sangakkara, FOUR, there's rubbish bowling and then there is this. Doherty spears it onto middle and it turns further down even as Sanga shuffles inside the line and lashes the sweep into a very vacant backward square leg area for four.

35.5

Doherty to Sangakkara, no run, this time he holds it back a touch and Sanga misses the sweep.

35.6

Doherty to Sangakkara, SIX, how did he time that so well? Sanga shimmies out, seemed to be well short of the pitch of the ball, but went through with the straight lofted drive. I initially thought he over-estimated the turn and it seemed to go off the outer half, but it just kept going and cleared the straight boundary with ease!

Sri Lanka 205/1   XJ Doherty 5-0-41-0
