86.6

Eranga to Johnson, no run, Johnson lets one go as the ball angles across his off stump from over the wicket

87.4

Lakmal to Johnson, no run, good length outside off, Johnson stays in his crease and lets it go

87.5

Lakmal to Johnson, no run, that defence was solid, got behind the line nicely and blocked it with the middle of his straight bat

87.6

Lakmal to Johnson, no run, a bouncer and Johnson ducks under it, saw it early and let it easily

Australia 266/6   MG Johnson 0* (4b)
88.3

Eranga to Johnson, no run, good length on off stump, Johnson takes a small stride forward and punches the ball firmly towards the off where it is intercepted by the fielder at short cover

88.4

Eranga to Johnson, no run, he had the width to free his arms there and he tried, perhaps a little half-heartedly, and mis-timed the drive towards short cover

88.5

Eranga to Johnson, no run, interesting one this. Johnson got hit high on the pad after the ball pitched outside leg stump. Eranga, the bowler, began to appeal for the lbw (which wasn't out) and then the fielders in the cordon went up for the catch after the ball lobbed towards second slip and was caught by Sangakkara diving forward. Did that carry? It just did. The umpire says not out to everything. Sri Lanka have no reviews left. Don't think it hit the bat. Might have hit both pads.

Australia 267/6   MG Johnson 0* (8b)

Eranga to Johnson, FOUR, Johnson's hammered this. He had the width to drive and the length was full too. Johnson freed those arms and drilled the ball through cover

90.3

Eranga to Johnson, no run, much closer to the off stump, Eranga pitches in line and angles it across from over the wicket, Johnson lets it go. He's a different batsman when he has the freedom to swing, and when he doesn't

Australia 293/6   MG Johnson 8* (27b 1x4)
96.1

Welegedara to Johnson, no run, short of a length angling into the left-hander from over the wicket, Johnson plays off the back foot towards the bowler

96.2

Welegedara to Johnson, OUT, caught at point! The ball from Welegedara is short of a length and rather wide outside off, Johnson could have hit that hard through cover but he just opened the face and spooned it gently towards point instead, an easy catch for Herath

MG Johnson c Herath b Welegedara 8 (42m 29b 1x4 0x6) SR: 27.58
