2.5

Lee to Silva, no run, driven back to the bowler, without much conviction

2.6

Lee to Silva, no run, another cracking over for Australia is finished off with a neat offcutter that leaps at Silva's thigh-pad and drops to the crease

Sri Lanka 11/3   LPC Silva 0* (2b)
3.3

Bracken to Silva, 1 run, dabbed out to cover, tip-and-run stuff, and a direct hit from Symonds would have had him gone for all money. Reckless stuff

Sri Lanka 13/3   LPC Silva 1* (3b)
4.1

Johnson to Silva, FOUR, on leg stump and clipped fine. A welcome boundary

4.2

Johnson to Silva, no run, an attempted cut, but too late on the stroke

4.3

Johnson to Silva, no run, half an appeal as Johnson jags one off the seam but that was missing leg, and too high as well. Good ball all the same

4.4

Johnson to Silva, 1 wide, not such a good ball. Pitches outside leg and stays that way

4.4

Johnson to Silva, no run, width outside off stump, but Silva misses out with a cut shot. Too eager to cash in?

4.5

Johnson to Silva, 1 run, fuller and shaping back into the right-hander, clipped off leg stump and a scurried single

Sri Lanka 21/3   LPC Silva 6* (8b 1x4)
5.1

Clark to Silva, no run, immaculate line and length - it's just like watching the Ashes all over again - and Silva defends with a perfectly straight bat

5.2

Clark to Silva, no run, more of the same, no room to free the arms

5.3

Clark to Silva, OUT, he frees his arms this time, but to absolutely no avail - a massive windmill of a wind-up, but a ball that was intended to vanish over the covers instead spirals down to Brett Lee on the third man boundary. Credit to Clark, he built the pressure and Silva cracked

LPC Silva c Lee b Clark 6 (12m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 54.54

Sri Lanka 21/4   LPC Silva 6 (11b 1x4)
