Johnson to Paranavitana, OUT, caught at short cover by Ponting, whose reflexes I covet. The ball was ordinary, full and outside off, there to be driven. Paranavitana went hard at it, and made proper contact, smashing the drive out of the middle. His only fault was that he hit it in the air just above Ponting's head. Up went those hands to catch a screamer at short cover. He was so well balanced as he took it.

Sri Lanka 364/5   MG Johnson 27-5-96-1
132.1

Johnson to HAPW Jayawardene, no run, length ball, starts outside off, angles further away, left alone

132.2

134.6

Johnson to HAPW Jayawardene, FOUR, after the short one, catches him on the back foot with a fullish offcutter. The edge, though, is soft, bounces well short of slips, and then bisects them

152.1

Johnson to Mathews, no run, short, and well down the leg side

152.2

152.4

Johnson to Mathews, no run, left alone outside off

152.5

Johnson to Mathews, 2 runs, He does take a risk, this time to try and squeeze a boundary through the close field, but he hits it uppishly past point. They think they can take three, but have to settle for two, and Mathews is stuck at the striker's end for the last ball of the over

Sri Lanka 467/9   MG Johnson 34-6-117-1

173.3

Johnson to Lakmal, no run, Lakmal stays in his crease, moves towards leg a touch, and pushes the ball towards gully

173.4

Johnson to Lakmal, FOUR, dropped! And by Hussey at gully would you believe it. Lakmal hung his bat outside off and opened the face, the ball flew above Hussey's head and he seemed to be late in getting his hands up to it
