Sri Lanka 386/5   HAPW Jayawardene 28* (61b 3x4)

137.1

Copeland to HAPW Jayawardene, 2 runs, PJ is edgy here. Nothing special with the bowling, but he has lost concentration a bit here. Plays this uppishly without any control, but somehow places this smack between the two short midwickets. Perfectly catchable height

140.2

Lyon to HAPW Jayawardene, no run, full, fast, across him, defended to cover

140.3

Lyon to HAPW Jayawardene, SIX, PJ take SL to 400 with a six! This is low in trajectory again, PJ charges at him, reaches the pitch of the ball, and lofts him over wide long-on. Cow corner, since it is time for cows to come back home

140.4

Lyon to HAPW Jayawardene, SIX, long hop, real long hop, and he ricks back to pull him over deep midwicket. PJ is looking for quick ones before stumps

140.5
