View dismissal MDKJ Perera b Santokie 26 17 12 2 2 216.66
3.6 77.6 mph, oh no! He was looking so good, but KJP plays back to this length delivery and chops it on to his middle and leg stump! Santokie doesn't show any emotion, but I am sure he is releived. Fantastic start to the innings by KJP though 41/1
View dismissal TM Dilshan run out (Simmons) 39 54 39 2 1 100.00
13.3 from Samuels, this is gone! This is a huge wicket! There is no escape once it hits direct. Dilshan pushed it to mid-off and immediately set off, but Thirimanne wasn't interested..Dilshan, though, had come down a fair distance and needed the fielder to miss his throw.. unfortunately for him, Simmons doesn't depend on the Keeper.. fires it quick and knocks down the stumps .. Dilshan was way short that time.. 91/4

4.2 Badree to Dilshan, he was looking to cut this hard, but chopped it on to point. Mahela was late to respond to the call and he is gone.. This is disaster for Mahela.. out without facing a ball. .He was a touch too late to start. I hope this is not his last innings! 41/2
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c & b Badree 1 7 6 0 0 16.66
6.2 52.1 mph, now it's Sanga! Badree takes a wicket afterall! Unlike his previous deliveries, he tosses this one right up and Sanga cannot control his push.. lobs it up in the air for the bowler to take a simple chance.. Tragedy for Sri Lanka, but West Indies are quickly coming back. He probably closed the face a bit too early and the little turn on that one did him 49/3
View dismissal HDRL Thirimanne c Simmons b Santokie 44 42 35 3 2 125.71
16.6 another one down! He makes room, gets a slower one, looks to crash it through point.. But that lack of pace messes with his timing and he ends up giving a simple catch to Simmons at point 121/5
View dismissal AD Mathews c Bravo b Russell 40 31 23 3 2 173.91
19.6 86.0 mph, where has this one! Bravo takes another cracker at deep midwicket.. he makes these look so easy.. It was a low full toss that the batsman flicked in the air.. It didn't look like it would carry to the fielder, but Bravo covers the ground and gobbles it up.. 160/6

View dismissal DR Smith b Malinga 17 22 14 1 1 121.42
4.5 77.0 mph, another deadly blow! Malinga, the captain, is on the job.. His first slower ball deceived Gayle into playing a tame push, his second goes right through Smith and hits the top of off. The batsman was stuck in the crease, but this deviates after pitching on good length area and does the damage 28/2
View dismissal CH Gayle b Malinga 3 19 13 0 0 23.07
4.1 83.4 mph, and Malinga does the trick! this is a harmless length delivery outside off and Gayle is a touch slow to bring his bat down, he gets a thick inside edge and that rolls over to the stumps.. No Gayle show tonight.. 25/1
View dismissal LMP Simmons lbw b Prasanna 4 15 8 0 0 50.00
7.1 53.6 mph, he takes the wicket of the first ball! That quick slider ends Simmons' innings. The batsman chose to stay back, but that one came in and came in quick and hit the back pad as the batsman looked to cut. That was an excellent delivery to start the spell.. A bit like Shahid Afridi's legspinners.. 34/3

13.2 66.5 mph, game over for Bravo! He succumbs to the pressure being built over the last few overs. It was a length delivery on the leg stump, the batsman whips it to the leg side but hits it straight towards Mahela at deep square leg..Sammy will have to do it alone today, if at all 77/4
