24.1

24.3

Johnson to Jayawardene, no run, and again, floated wider and moving away further, Mahela moves across and goes for another drive, Haddin takes it diving to his right, Australia are sure there was an edge, umpire Asoka is equally sure there wasn't, Australia go for the review, the bat is nowhere near the ball, it was the sound of bat hitting ground but the ball was quite a few inches away

24.4

Johnson to Jayawardene, FOUR, Mahela gets bat on ball now, shuffles well across and gets it off his hip fine down the leg side

24.5

Johnson to Jayawardene, 1 wide, too wide this time outside off stump, even Mahela in this want-to-drive mood won't go after that

24.5

Johnson to Jayawardene, no run, dropped, what an over this has been, Mahela continues to go after full ones outside off, this time he gets an edge, but Haddin tumbles to his right, gets it in his gloves and it pops out, so a wasted review of a catch that wasn't and in the end a catch that almost was
