38.1

Pollard to Sangakkara, 1 run, wide yorker to outdo Sanga who is backing away. Just the single

Pollard to Sangakkara, no run, slower ball, doesn't arrive. Sanga is trying to heave it over midwicket, but gets only the inside edge into the pad

38.4

Pollard to Sangakkara, (no ball) 2 runs, no-ball. What a time for a no-ball. Wide full ball again, he moves across the line to flick this into the leg side

38.4

Pollard to Sangakkara, 2 runs, the free hit is a length ball, Sanga gets too much under it, and lofts it to long-off. The skier is so high they have time to take two run

38.5

Pollard to Sangakkara, 2 runs, length ball outside off, he moves across to scoop this over square leg. Just a chip

38.6

Pollard to Sangakkara, FOUR, lucky for Sanga. Slower ball, outside off, Sanga is down the wicket, but still early into the shot, but the outside edge bisects the keeper and short third man

Sri Lanka 201/6   KA Pollard 2-0-16-0

40.1

Pollard to Senanayake, 2 runs, slower ball, very wide, Senanayake still goes after it, and edges it over short third for two. would have been wide had he not touched it

40.4

Pollard to Sangakkara, 1 run, short of a length, makes room to hit it to deep cover for one. No century for Sanga today then

40.5

Pollard to Senanayake, 2 runs, goes wide of the crease, bowls length, Senanayake gets a thick edge to the right of third man. Bravo does well to keep the ball inside the rope

40.6

Pollard to Senanayake, OUT, slower bouncer, Senanayake throws his bat it, gets another edge, and this time Bravo - wearing sunglasses, mind you - has enough time to come under it and catch it

SMSM Senanayake c Bravo b Pollard 7 (9m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 116.66
