Sharma to Samaraweera, no run, ooh he's hit him! 134 kph on that bouncer that reared up from just behind back of a length. Samaraweera was taken aback from the lift and ducked as he took his eyes off the ball, and it knocked him on the helmet before ballooning to midwicket


Sharma to Samaraweera, no run, another bouncer attempted, this time the line is well outside off and Samaraweera handles it more comfortably as he lets it go


Sharma to Samaraweera, no run, further up this time outside off and Samaraweera was caught on the backfoot but pushed forward to keep it away to the offside


Sharma to Samaraweera, no run, good ball to finish off, back of a length outside off and moving away. Great start from Ishant today, he's already bowled more good balls than he bowled through all of day one.

Sri Lanka 259/3   TT Samaraweera 0* (4b)

Mithun to Samaraweera, no run, oh dear, Dravid has dropped a dolly at first slip! Very good ball, bending his back outside the off, that straightened a touch from outside off, Samaraweera fended away without any conviction. The outside edge looped up, stood in air for so long that it was probably too slow for Dravid who dropped it as it came into his lap.


Mithun to Samaraweera, no run, Samaraweera is struggling here. Good bouncer, and he attempts a totally clueless pull, nearly falling away, and it ballooned towards midwicket, but well short of Yuvraj


Mithun to Samaraweera, OUT, he's nailed him this time! No need for a fielder if you can do it yourself eh Mithun! It's again that ball of his, which slants in late from outside off. He had Dilshan in trouble with it on day one, and now he's got Samaraweera. It may have hit him marginally outside off, and Hawkeye says it would have clipped the skin off the top of middle stump.

TT Samaraweera lbw b Mithun 0 (7m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00
