1.5

Holder to Jayawardene, no run, fuller now, the sucker ball, just outside off, well done by Jayawardene to leave it alone. Chest high for Charles

Sri Lanka 8/0   JO Holder 1-0-1-0

3.1

Holder to Tharanga, 1 no ball, short, into the ribs, kept down... but he has overstepped

3.1

3.2

Holder to Tharanga, 1 run, fuller ball, crisply push-driven to mid-off where Best allows them a single

3.3

Sri Lanka 19/1   JO Holder 2-0-5-1

5.1

Holder to Sangakkara, 1 no ball, another no-ball from Holder. He has overstepped. Pitched up outside off, and wide too

5.1

Holder to Sangakkara, 5 wides, This free hit is wide. Too short. Too high. Sanga tries to ramp it, but has missed. Charles is ordinary with the gloves, and parries this for four

Holder to Chandimal, 1 run, short, wide, Chandimal throws his arms at it, and the extra bounce nearly carries it all the way to third man. Roach fields it on the bounce

5.6

Holder to Sangakkara, no run, and he is nearly lbw. Moves across to a full ball, misses it, and this is a close shout. The umpire reckons it is going down leg. The way Sanga set off for a run, though, you could see he was nervous. Replays show the ball is headed down leg

35.1

Holder to Sangakkara, 1 run, bouncer, gets a little big, Sanga mis-hits the pull for a single to square leg

35.2

Holder to Kulasekara, 1 run, short again, he rides the bounce, and dabs it to third man

35.3

Holder to Sangakkara, FOUR, nicely played. Sanga is moving across, which makes Holder angle it a bit wide, but then he stops moving, and nicely opens the face on it to use Holder's pace and send it to third man for four

35.4

Holder to Sangakkara, 1 wide, big wide outside off as Sanga tries to move away to leg

35.4

Holder to Sangakkara, 1 run, looks to drive a wide length ball, mis-hits it to mid-off to bring up a fighting half-century. He has played well in difficult conditions

35.5

Holder to Kulasekara, no run, backing away, Holder bounces him, takes the top edge, into the helmet grille, Kula's head falls back. Safe

35.6

Holder to Kulasekara, SIX, in the slot. Short but without sting. Just waist high. And in Kula's swinging arc at middle and leg. And he sends it sailing over deep midwicket

Sri Lanka 161/6   JO Holder 7-0-41-1

39.1

Holder to Kulasekara, OUT, meanwhile Kula is gone. Holder follows the batsman who is backing away, and the little extra bounce means Kula has got too much under the ball and skied it. Bravo runs in from long-on, and to his left, and also calls for it, and avoids the converging fielder from long-off to take a safe catch

KMDN Kulasekara c Bravo b Holder 14 (20m 9b 1x4 1x6) SR: 155.55

39.2

Holder to Sangakkara, 1 run, cramps him up with the angle on this shortish delivery. Sanga can take just the single

39.3

Holder to Senanayake, 1 leg bye, short of a length, extra bounce, hits him on the thigh pad, but can't prevent the leg-bye

39.4

Holder to Sangakkara, 2 runs, slogged away with the angle, Devon Smith runs to his right from deep square leg, and keeps this in. The ball bounces just before the rope, has reached the air space beyond the rope, but Smith knocks it back in

39.5

Holder to Sangakkara, 2 runs, slower ball, mis-hits it straight of long-off, and comes back for two

39.6

Holder to Sangakkara, FOUR, another lucky boundary. Sanga backs away and swings, and gets a thick edge to this length ball, which flies over short third man for four

Sri Lanka 211/7   JO Holder 8-0-50-2
