Australia 208/6   MG Johnson 0* (16b)

72.1

Australia 225/6   MG Johnson 8* (24b)

75.1

Randiv to Johnson, no run, turn and bounce again, beats the outside edge as Johnson looks to defend

75.2

Randiv to Johnson, no run, big appeal for a catch at the wicket. There is sharp turn and bounce, but there is also daylight between bat and pad. The shout more in hope than conviction. Can't fool Mr Dar

75.3

Randiv to Johnson, 2 runs, too straight, worked into the leg side for two

75.4

Randiv to Johnson, 2 byes, Where did this come from? Pitched on a length, just outside off, and explodes, chest high, and even PJ can't collect this

75.5

Randiv to Johnson, no run, and he misses the edge again! This is flighted again, pitches on a length, in front of off, and with a puff of dust, kicks off. PJ does well this time to collect it

75.6

Randiv to Johnson, FOUR, poor delivery to end the over, and Johnson is alert enough to crash this short delivery through the covers for four

Australia 233/6   MG Johnson 14* (30b 1x4)

76.2

Lakmal to Johnson, no run, angled across Johnson, left alone

76.3

Lakmal to Johnson, no run, short of a length, pitched outside leg, hits Johnson's pads in front of middle. Rightly given not out

76.4

Lakmal to Johnson, OUT, soft soft dismissal after many much more menacing deliveries! This is short and wide, going wider, but Johnson goes for the pull as opposed to the cut, and gets a faint bottom edge through to PJ. It was so innocuous the slips didn't even realise he had edged it!

MG Johnson c †HAPW Jayawardene b Lakmal 14 (36m 33b 1x4 0x6) SR: 42.42

Australia 234/7   MG Johnson 14 (33b 1x4)
