Sri Lanka 215/5   J Mubarak 2* (2b)

18.1

Onyango to Mubarak, SIX, That's a biggie. Full and on the leg and middle, he clears the front foot and scythes it over long-on

18.2

Onyango to Mubarak, SIX, length delivery on the stumps, whacked over deep midwicket. Stand and deliver.

18.3

Onyango to Mubarak, SIX, Hattrick six! Mubarak is on fire. He clears the front foot again and smokes a length delivery over long on.

18.4

Onyango to Mubarak, FOUR, another length delivery, outside the off stump this time, murdered over extra cover

18.5

Onyango to Mubarak, SIX, The sixes keep coming. The white ball is flying everywhere. Short in length, on the leg and middle, pulled over deep midwicket

18.6

Onyango to Mubarak, 1 run, another pull shot but this time straight to deep square leg boundary

Sri Lanka 244/6   J Mubarak 31* (8b 1x4 4x6)

19.1

Ongondo to Mubarak, FOUR, Full and on the stumps, Mubarak moves to the leg-side, gives himself room and knives it over extra cover

19.2

Ongondo to Mubarak, FOUR, short in length, outside off stump, slapped over point

19.3

Ongondo to Mubarak, SIX, Fast and furious. Simple technique: he just clears the front foot out of the line and swings through the line. This time the ball disappears over long-on

19.4

Ongondo to Mubarak, 1 run, gets off the strike with a drive to the on side

19.6

Ongondo to Mubarak, no run, No! he doesn't. What a pity. Slower one, outside off stump, Mubarak takes a step or two down the track and tries to heave it over the off side but makes no contact. But take a bow Mubarak. What a fabulous cameo.

Sri Lanka 260/6   J Mubarak 46* (13b 3x4 5x6)
