Copeland to DPMD Jayawardene, 1 run, Mahela off the mark right away with a soft push in front of extra cover

Sri Lanka 11/2   DPMD Jayawardene 1* (1b)

Harris to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, Harris overdoes the angle eagerly and sends this one screaming down leg


Harris to DPMD Jayawardene, 2 runs, gets it off the inside part of the bat towards midwicket, who has a shy at the stumps, wonder which ones, as he is miles to the left of the non-striker;s stumps, would have been tight had he hit with Mahela struggling to make his ground, in the end he manages another run as the man backing up has too much to do with the wayward throw


Harris to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, this is super stuff, Harris has Mahela prodding late outside off to one that snakes away after coming in with the angle, beaten all the way


Harris to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, wiser from Mahela, lets one go outside off, safer too, as it was kicking up high as well


Harris to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, lovely, plain awesome stuff from HArris, he beats Mahela again on the forward push, tight lines outside off, hold your breath


Harris to DPMD Jayawardene, 1 run, just past the man at short leg as Mahela tickles one off the pads

Sri Lanka 14/2   DPMD Jayawardene 4* (7b)

Copeland to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, length ball close to off, he goes back in the crease and defends


Copeland to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, Copeland finds movement this time, away from Mahela, draws him forward and leaves him poking inside the line


Copeland to DPMD Jayawardene, OUT, Sri Lanka slip further, Mahela Jayawardene departs to an insane take from Michael Hussey, it was pitched up, lured Mahela in to the drive, wonder if he would have done the same against Harris, did not get fully to the pitch, and ended up getting a thick edge that was headed for the third man boundary, but Hussey decided to stick his left hand in the path with a leap to his left, the ball stuck, the Australians mobbed him, and Mahela walked of

DPMD Jayawardene c Hussey b Copeland 4 (10m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

Sri Lanka 14/3   DPMD Jayawardene 4 (10b)
