Chigumbura to Perera, 1 run, ooh, close run out opportunity, but the stumps were missed. Glanced away straight to short fine leg for a tight single and Mahela would have been out by a yard - so far it has looked like the only way he can be dismissed.

Sri Lanka 41/1   NLTC Perera 1* (4b)

Price to Perera, 1 run, short and turning in, Perera goes back and bunts it down to long on


Price to Perera, FOUR, rubbish bowling, and Perera gets into the act, just as well too - after all he is the designated pinch-hitter! Gets back to the short ball and cuts it well in front of square, along the carpet for four


Price to Perera, no run, finally, pitches it up and forces Perera to come forward. Flicked straight to midwicket

Sri Lanka 59/1   NLTC Perera 6* (7b 1x4)

Lamb to Perera, no run, good length, on to leg and straightening, played back to the bowler


Lamb to Perera, no run, similar ball, almost offers a return catch this time. Good bowling from Lamb


Lamb to Perera, no run


Lamb to Perera, SIX, Perera breaks the strangle hold, he jumps out, gets close to the pitch and lofts it high and just over long on on the ropes. Mpofu tried to pull it in, but it was just beyond him.


Lamb to Perera, 1 run, drives down to long on this time to retain strike.

Sri Lanka 67/1   NLTC Perera 13* (12b 1x4 1x6)

Utseya to Perera, 2 runs, pitched well up on leg stump, Perera is down the track again, and drives powerfully down to long on who fumbles and concedes a second. Masakadza was the culprit

Utseya to Perera, 1 run, tries to cut again and gets a single


Utseya to Perera, 1 run, again flighten on leg, and Perera gets too close to it by coming down the track and drives it down to long on

Sri Lanka 72/1   NLTC Perera 17* (16b 1x4 1x6)

Lamb to Perera, SIX, Whack! Flighted on Perera's pads and he has shown a liking for that particular line. Hittable length too and he obliged, freed his arms and sent it sailing high over long on for seemingly the biggest six of the day.


Lamb to Perera, no run


Lamb to Perera, OUT, wonderful catch by Chigumbura in the deep to send Perera back! Full toss from Lamb, dealt with in violent fashion by Perera, who was again eyeing the long on boundary, but he could not get enough elevation this time. Chigumbura runs to his left from long on and takes it a couple of feet inside the ropes. Well taken!

NLTC Perera c Chigumbura b Lamb 23 (24m 19b 1x4 2x6) SR: 121.05

Sri Lanka 80/2   NLTC Perera 23 (19b 1x4 2x6)
