78.2

78.3

Lakmal to Copeland, no run, back of a length, defended to leg

78.4

Lakmal to Copeland, no run, length ball, pushed to cover

78.5

Lakmal to Copeland, no run, full and wide, left alone harmlessly

78.6

Lakmal to Copeland, no run, another harmless wide delivery, watches it through to PJ

Australia 240/8   TA Copeland 4* (5b 1x4)
79.3

Randiv to Copeland, no run, sharp offbreak, padded away safely, the bounce means he couldn't have been lbw

79.4

Randiv to Copeland, no run, more turn and bounce, and he lets this one hits his thigh pad

79.5

Randiv to Copeland, FOUR, sweeps and sweeps effectively. Difficult shot for a tall man, but he sees this is close enough to him, and goes for it. Keeps it along the ground

79.6

Randiv to Copeland, no run, overpitched around off, defended to cover

Australia 245/8   TA Copeland 8* (9b 2x4)
80.3

Lakmal to Copeland, FOUR, Copeland is hitting boundary after boundary! Short of a length, into the pads, nicely flicked away past square leg. Specialist batsmen would be proud of this

80.4

Lakmal to Copeland, no run, short outside off, he lets PJ do the collecting

80.5

Lakmal to Copeland, no run, full, outside off, driven handsomely, can't beat extra cover

80.6

Lakmal to Copeland, no run, floated wide outside off, Copeland doesn't play at it

Australia 250/8   TA Copeland 12* (13b 3x4)
81.4

Randiv to Copeland, no run, drift, dip, turn, bounce, too good, because this turns back in through the bat-pad gap, misses the edge, and bounces over the stumps

81.5

Randiv to Copeland, no run, overspinner, middle and off, doesn't turn, Copeland defends

81.6

Randiv to Copeland, OUT, Sharp turn, simple bat-pad catch. This is flighted, draws Copeland forward, who looks to play this to leg, is not close to the pitch of the ball, gets an inside edge onto the pad, and an easy catch accrues for short leg

TA Copeland c Paranavitana b Randiv 12 (21m 16b 3x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

Australia 251/9   TA Copeland 12 (16b 3x4)
