Anderson to HAPW Jayawardene, OUT, that has swung back in a mile, and Anderson has got the lbw appeal in his favour, Sri Lanka go for the review, they have to, this is the last batting pair, he pushed forward in defence, but ended up pushing about a foot outside the eventual line of the ball as it swerved back in too much from a good length, hit him above the knee roll, replays show that was hitting top of middle and leg, on-field umpire's decision was out, and so it remains
