Australia 126/4   UT Khawaja 6* (25b)

44.1

Lakmal to Khawaja, no run, Big shout first up. They are going for the review for the inside edge. This is short of a length, looks like it will angle across, but holds its line slightly, and Khawaja punches away from the body. There is a sound as it passes the bat, although the replays don't conclusively prove there is an inside edge onto the pad and then through to P Jayawardene. More drama. This is a bit of a farce really. Umpire Kettleborough rules this not-out. And I am lip-reading here, Dilshan seems to ask the umpire if there was bat on the way. It seems the umpire has said yes, and Dilshan is excited again, because then this is clearly caught bat-pad. Kettleborough has another conversation upstairs, and rules not-out again. I assume that is because the technology doesn't conclusively prove an edge. We have neither Hot Spot nor Snicko here. It couldn't have been lbw anyway, because it was angling away, and wasn't going to hit the stumps, even if Hurricane Irene pushed it back in

53.2

Welegedara to Khawaja, OUT, Reverse swing! Timber! Khawaja's tentative stay ends. He has always shown the bowlers a tempting gap between bat and pad, and this time Welegedara sneaks through it. This is just short of a yorker length, Khawaja drives away from the body, and the late swing squeezes in to hit the stumps
