87.6

Sharma to HAPW Jayawardene, no run, full and fast on middle and leg, Prasanna does well to play it down the track

Sri Lanka 322/5   HAPW Jayawardene 0* (1b)
88.3

Mithun to HAPW Jayawardene, no run, fuller and wider outside off to the new batsmen. That moved inwards after pitching, Prasanna pushed forward and let it go

88.4

Mithun to HAPW Jayawardene, 2 runs, Prasanna takes on the challenge and pulls the bouncer, without quite getting over the bounce, but there was no one at midwicket to take it and it landed safely

88.5

Mithun to HAPW Jayawardene, no run, good ball angling in from outside off, one of the features of play today has been that India's seamers have given almost NOTHING to drive. Prasanna plays it to the off side

88.6

Mithun to HAPW Jayawardene, no run, nasty bouncer, and having played an unconvincing pull last time, Prasanna reckons he is safer taking a few blows. That hit him hard on the fore-arm, but no harm done

Sri Lanka 329/5   HAPW Jayawardene 2* (5b)
89.5

Sharma to HAPW Jayawardene, no run, another dream ball, McGrathesque one would say, darts away from a length outside off, and does everything except take the outside edge as Prasanna prods uncertainly

89.6

Sharma to HAPW Jayawardene, no run, this one was slightly wider outside off and Prasanna is pleased to face a ball that he does not have to play with bat

Sri Lanka 341/5   HAPW Jayawardene 2* (7b)
91.1

Sharma to HAPW Jayawardene, no run, that's slipped well down the leg and Dhoni moves across to save it

91.2

Sharma to HAPW Jayawardene, no run, moves the line outside off and Prasanna lets it go comfortably

91.3

Sharma to HAPW Jayawardene, no run, bangs it in short this time, but it's well outside off and it's an easy leave. India should make these batsmen play more before lunch.

91.4

Sharma to HAPW Jayawardene, no run, again well outside off, an easy leave for the batsman after getting forward

91.5

Sharma to HAPW Jayawardene, 1 run, over-compensation, this one is faster, 137 kph on the pads though and it is flicked square easily for a brace

Sri Lanka 344/5   HAPW Jayawardene 3* (12b)
92.1

Harbhajan Singh to HAPW Jayawardene, no run, Flighted outside off and turning in, misses the cut shot. Just as well.

92.2

Harbhajan Singh to HAPW Jayawardene, FOUR, this one is flighted on middle and Prasanna sweeps it away with disdain, he's not playing for lunch is he? Through to the midwicket boundary quickly

92.3

Harbhajan Singh to HAPW Jayawardene, FOUR, ooh, outside edge from round the wickets, that straightened outside off and ran away quickly to the third man fence. You wouldn't believe that this field has taken so much of rain recently, that just flew away

92.4

Harbhajan Singh to HAPW Jayawardene, 2 runs, full on middle again, paddled very fine and easily for a couple

92.5

Harbhajan Singh to HAPW Jayawardene, SIX, Prasanna seems to be playing like this is the last over of an T20 innings, not the last over before lunch! Slog sweep from outside off, and it lands well beyond midwicket for the first six of the match

92.6

Harbhajan Singh to HAPW Jayawardene, 1 run, Bhajji shortens the length to cut his losses, Prasanna stays back and nudges it behind square for one to end a superb session of Test cricket.

Sri Lanka 361/6   HAPW Jayawardene 20* (18b 2x4 1x6)
93.1

Mithun to HAPW Jayawardene, 2 runs, a short ball first up, pulled in front of square but not too well timed by Prasanna

93.2

Mithun to HAPW Jayawardene, 1 bye, width this time, Prasanna swishes at it and misses, Dhoni also misses behind the stumps, it runs through his legs for a bye

Sri Lanka 364/6   HAPW Jayawardene 22* (20b 2x4 1x6)
94.1

Harbhajan Singh to HAPW Jayawardene, 1 run, full delivery outside off, Prasanna bends his knee and sweeps behind square

94.5

Harbhajan Singh to HAPW Jayawardene, no run, solidly defended off the backfoot to the leg side by Prasanna

94.6

Harbhajan Singh to HAPW Jayawardene, no run, well outside off, Prasanna sweeps to short fine, straight towards the fielder so there's no run to be had

Sri Lanka 376/6   HAPW Jayawardene 23* (23b 2x4 1x6)
96.2

Harbhajan Singh to HAPW Jayawardene, 3 runs, didn't pick the straightish one from Harbhajan, looking to defend it but gets a thick outside edge past slips for three

Sri Lanka 381/6   HAPW Jayawardene 26* (24b 2x4 1x6)
97.1

Mithun to HAPW Jayawardene, 1 run, Mithun persists with the short-ball strategy, Prasanna likes playing the pull, he does so again and gets himself a single

97.6

Mithun to HAPW Jayawardene, OUT, Mithun strikes, that's the end of Prasanna, he was looking to play it to the leg side after moving across the stumps, he misses and his pad gets in the way of a ball that was going on to hit middle

HAPW Jayawardene lbw b Mithun 27 (48m 26b 2x4 1x6) SR: 103.84

Sri Lanka 393/7   HAPW Jayawardene 27 (26b 2x4 1x6)
