Lakmal to Watson, OUT, bowled 'em, just like Copeland went through Dilshan, Watson shouldering arms and flagging the ball through, it pitched much closer to off on a length and came in to uproot off stump, too close to be left really

Randiv to Hughes, OUT, Randiv has deserved this wicket, sharp bat-pad chance, and a nice take by short leg lunging forward with both hands, he pressed forward to one that was angled in fullish on middle and leg, it gripped and bounced a touch to take the inside edge on to pad and popped in front of short leg

Australia 95/2   SE Marsh 17* (52b 2x4)   S Randiv 11.5-3-14-1

43.4

Welegedara to Clarke, OUT, he's got Clarke, big wicket, reaching out to a wide one outside off stump and it goes straight to second slip, Mahela does not drop 'em, he takes it to his right with both hands, Clarke was lured by the fullish and wide one floated up for the drive, it moved away from him a bit in the air too, he fell for the trap, lunged after it, and was done in

MJ Clarke c DPMD Jayawardene b Welegedara 13 (24m 20b 1x4 0x6) SR: 65.00

Australia 116/3   SE Marsh 24* (73b 2x4)   UWMBCA Welegedara 9.4-2-34-1

Samaraweera to Hussey, OUT, at long last a wicket, Hussey perishes, the partnership ends at 258, anothe rflighted delivery, turning away, Hussey a bit early into the shot, Sangakkara moves in from sweeper cover to pouch that, end of a fine innings from Hussey

128.1

Randiv to Haddin, OUT, and the wickets are tumbling, Sangakkara gets his third catch of the day, Haddin dances down to a length ball and looks to power it towards long-on, he can't get the height, simple catch for Sanga at mid-on, Haddin's troubles with the bat contines

BJ Haddin c Sangakkara b Randiv 1 (5m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

Randiv to Johnson, OUT, Randiv on a hat-trick, what is it with batsmen shouldering arms in this Test to be bowled, Johnson thinks this is a regulation off spinner from Randiv, and raises his bat after seeing it pitch just outside off, it slides on and hits the top of middle and off

MG Johnson b Randiv 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00
