19.1

Smith to Tharanga, no run, short and turning in, he gets away with it as Tharanga mistimes the pull.

19.2

Smith to Tharanga, 3 runs, edged, but safe. No slips in place. Tharanga looks to cut a short ball that cramps him as it turns in, and gets it away very fine.

Smith to Dilshan, FOUR, very poor bowling from Smith. Another short ball, Dilshan crashes it through backward point with a cut shot he will play in his sleep.

Smith to Dilshan, 1 run, finally tosses one up, Dlshan drives with the turn through wide mid-off for a single.

19.5

Smith to Tharanga, no run, slows this one in the air and tosses it up on middle and leg. Tharanga doesn't connect with the whip.

Smith to Tharanga, 1 run, full toss on the stumps to end that over that had a little bit of everything. Tharanga drives down to mid-on for a single.

Sri Lanka 108/0   SPD Smith 1-0-9-0

21.1

Smith to Tharanga, FOUR, George Binoy believes this is as easy as taking candy from a baby. I agree. Width to Tharanga again, and he laces it through point for four more.

21.2

Smith to Tharanga, no run, that's more the line, he cuts off the width and doesn't over-pitch. Tharanga deals with it respectfully.

Smith to Tharanga, no run, again, straight and spinning in. Tharanga blocks.

21.4

Smith to Tharanga, 1 run, fuller, Tharanga eases forward and drives through mid-off

Smith to Dilshan, no run, the pre-meditated sweep again, Dilshan misses it this time,
