12.2

Abdur Razzak to Jayasuriya, SIX, now he gives him the charge, getting well enough to the pitch of it and hammering it way over long-off for another six!

Sri Lanka 81/0   ST Jayasuriya 46* (40b 4x4 3x6)   Abdur Razzak 1.2-0-12-0

12.5

Abdur Razzak to Jayasuriya, SIX, thats his 50! Jayasuriya again advances out of his crease to a very wide ball, doesnt get to the pitch at all but has enough power on it to send it over long-off for another six, well played sir

Sri Lanka 87/0   ST Jayasuriya 52* (43b 4x4 4x6)   Abdur Razzak 1.5-0-18-0

27.2

Shakib Al Hasan to Jayawardene, SIX, hello, where did that come from! Jayawardene wakes up from a sluggish period, getting the front foot out and lofting a tossed up delivery from outside off stump over cow corner for six, a nice, clean strike that!

Sri Lanka 151/1   DPMD Jayawardene 22* (44b 1x4 1x6)   Shakib Al Hasan 3.2-0-14-0

30.5

Abdur Razzak to Jayawardene, SIX, half a dozen! Flat outside off stump, he clears the front leg and slog-sweeps that superbly over deep midwicket, many rows back into the stands, a huge hit

Sri Lanka 170/1   DPMD Jayawardene 35* (60b 1x4 2x6)   Abdur Razzak 4.5-0-38-0

39.1

Shakib Al Hasan to Silva, SIX, nice shot! Silva comes down the ground, getting to the length and just chipping it over extra cover and thats six!

Sri Lanka 219/2   LPC Silva 12* (13b 1x4 1x6)   Shakib Al Hasan 9.1-0-40-1

39.6

Shakib Al Hasan to Sangakkara, SIX, huge! Sangakkara sees the ball going down leg stump, gets down on bended knee, and slams that high over deep midwicket for maximum

Sri Lanka 228/2   KC Sangakkara 38* (44b 1x4 1x6)   Shakib Al Hasan 10-0-49-1

45.6

Abdur Razzak to Jayasuriya, SIX, fired in on leg stump, Jayasuriya picks it off the pads high and down to deep backward square leg, where the fielder on the ropes catches it, steps back over the boundary, parries it up but sees the ball also land over the ropes...Ashraful again

Sri Lanka 272/3   ST Jayasuriya 91* (81b 6x4 5x6)   Abdur Razzak 8-0-66-0

47.4

Abdur Razzak to Jayasuriya, SIX, thats his hundred! Great innings! Jayasuriya lays into it, slamming it high over midwicket for maximum! What a player!

Sri Lanka 294/3   ST Jayasuriya 103* (85b 7x4 6x6)   Abdur Razzak 8.4-0-75-0

47.5

Abdur Razzak to Jayasuriya, SIX, and again! This time Jayasuriya goes off side, stepping out and lofting one tossed up outside off stump back over long-off for six!

Sri Lanka 300/3   ST Jayasuriya 109* (86b 7x4 7x6)   Abdur Razzak 8.5-0-81-0

48.4

Mashrafe Mortaza to Silva, SIX, shot man! Overpitched outside off stump, and now Silva does a replica Dhoni, getting the back leg up and flicking it superbly over deep backward square leg for maximum! What an innovative stroke from the young lad!

Sri Lanka 310/4   LPC Silva 50* (45b 5x4 2x6)   Mashrafe Mortaza 9.4-0-64-0
