1.1

Broad to Dilshan, 3 runs, pitched up on middle off, Dilsan picks it up early and works it away through midwicket, Panesar give case and keeps it down to three. Bye bye jet lag

1.5

Broad to Dilshan, FOUR, fuller in length and in the slot outside the off stump, Dilshan goes for the drive and ends up with a thick edge down to the third man fence

1.6

Broad to Dilshan, no run, close to the off stump line, this time Dilsan times his shot much better and the ball trickles down to mid-off

Sri Lanka 11/0   TM Dilshan 7* (3b 1x4)
3.1

Broad to Dilshan, no run, driven away on the off side

3.2

Broad to Dilshan, no run, defended down on the leg side, no single there

3.3

Broad to Dilshan, no run, left alone outside the off stump

3.4

Broad to Dilshan, FOUR, Dilshan in his elements here - short and wide outside the off stump and he gives it everything trying to cut away through point, ball clips the edge and flies over the slips

3.5

Broad to Dilshan, OUT, Broad too joins the party! good length delivery outside the off stump, nothing great there but Dilshan makes it look good by pushing at it with zero feet movement. Sweet sound of leather on edge and the ball goes straight to Strauss at first slip

TM Dilshan c Strauss b Broad 11 (23m 8b 2x4 0x6) SR: 137.50

Sri Lanka 15/3   TM Dilshan 11 (8b 2x4)
