View dismissal SR Watson lbw b Mendis 22 32 21 2 1 104.76
7.3 gone! Watson attempts a horrible sweep to this very full and straight delivery, and he's hit on the back pad. Poor stroke - quality bowling 59/3
View dismissal DA Warner c Dilshan b Mathews 0 1 3 0 0 0.00
0.4 got him! Slightly shorter by Matthews and Warner cuts and slaps it straight into the hands of point! 1/1
View dismissal RT Ponting* b Mendis 25 23 15 5 0 166.66
5.6 bowled him! Ponting stepped outside leg trying to smite him over cover but loses his leg stump. Looked to me like a leggie from Mendis 48/2
View dismissal BJ Haddin b Malinga 16 18 17 0 1 94.11
10.6 bowled him! Comical cricket. A slower full-toss which Haddin seemed to pick, but it dipped late on him and splattered his stumps - the off stump and middle stump both flattened 74/4
View dismissal MJ Clarke c & b Udana 11 17 15 0 0 73.33
12.2 another one done by a slower delivery. Are you watching, England? Superb delivery on middle-and-leg which Clarke picked, but got a leading edge back to the bowler who took a great low catch with his left hand 79/5
View dismissal DJ Hussey c Jayasuriya b Udana 28 28 22 1 2 127.27
18.2 tries to repeat the shot but slices it high and point swallows it with ease 135/7
View dismissal MEK Hussey lbw b Mendis 1 7 5 0 0 20.00
14.5 what bowling. What belief and guile from Mendis. A quicker and fuller ball to Hussey who's rapped absolutely dead in front. Too quick, too straight 94/6
MG Johnson not out 28 24 13 2 2 215.38
View dismissal B Lee b Malinga 15 5 2 1 300.00
19.2 what a yorker. Oh well bowled! Very, very fast and hit the base of the leg stump which is sent cartwheeling 151/8
View dismissal NM Hauritz c †Sangakkara b Malinga 4 2 3 1 0 133.33
19.5 outside edge, another one for Malinga - well caught by Sangakkara low to his right 155/9
