7.4

Clark to Mubarak, no run, short and Mubarak ducks his first delivery

7.5

Clark to Mubarak, FOUR, a rare error from Clark, he strays onto the pads and Mubarak tickles that very fine. A welcome boundary

10.1

Lee to Mubarak, 1 run, width outside off, cut into the ground off the back foot

10.4

Lee to Mubarak, FOUR, room outside off and a classical off-drive, so nice to see and double cheers because that brings up the fifty

10.5

Lee to Mubarak, no run, hmm, not so good, the batsman misjudging outside off, fencing a prod off the back foot

10.6

Lee to Mubarak, 2 runs, width again outside off and scooped up towards deep point where Watson attempts to scoop up, misses, and allows an extra run which Sri Lanka gratefully accept

Sri Lanka 55/7   J Mubarak 13* (10b 2x4)
11.3

Clark to Mubarak, 1 run, poked forward

11.4

12.1

Watson to Mubarak, 1 run, same again, and this time it's cut to deep point

Sri Lanka 65/7   J Mubarak 18* (15b 2x4)
13.1

14.4

Watson to Mubarak, 1 run, touch of width outside off, opens the face, and runs it down to deep third man (fourth man?)

14.6

Watson to Mubarak, no run, clever delivery, taking the pace off it and slants it across, threatening to deceive the left hander, who plays too close to his body to get bat on it

Sri Lanka 77/7   J Mubarak 26* (23b 3x4)
15.2

Johnson to Mubarak, 1 run, half-volley, driven back out straight towards long-off

Sri Lanka 81/7   J Mubarak 28* (25b 3x4)
16.2

Watson to Mubarak, OUT, slower delivery, the offspinner and the pressure told on Mubarak, trying to clear extra cover with a drive off one knee but Symonds makes no mistake, stepping back and clasping to take Sri Lanka into further trouble

J Mubarak c Symonds b Watson 28 (33m 26b 3x4 0x6) SR: 107.69
