Shakib Al Hasan to Jayawardene, FOUR, charges out and drills a short of length delivery through cover. There is a despairing dive near the ropes but can't stop the ball

12.3

Shakib Al Hasan to Jayawardene, 1 leg bye, goes for a sweep and it runs off the pad

Sri Lanka 84/3   DPMD Jayawardene 22* (23b 1x4)

13.1

Mahmudullah to Jayawardene, no run, moves to leg-side, cuts a length delivery on middle and off to backward point

13.2

Mahmudullah to Jayawardene, 2 runs, charges out, the bowler slows up the pace and he slices it just over the cover fielder.

13.3

Mahmudullah to Jayawardene, 2 runs, comes down the track, can't reach the pitch, still goes for the lofted shot and the ball falls short of long-off

13.4

Mahmudullah to Jayawardene, 1 run, dropped by Shakib at cover. Jayawardene came down the track and slapped a short-of-length delivery uppishly to left of cover where Shakib took a few steps before flinging himself with both arms outstretched but can't hold on. It would have been a fantastic catch

Mahmudullah to Jayawardene, no run, on the off stump line, cut to backward point

Sri Lanka 90/4   DPMD Jayawardene 27* (28b 1x4)
