Utseya to Jayawardene, 1 wide

12.3

Utseya to Jayawardene, FOUR, this is the non-violent movement from Jayawardene and it is working fine! He knows where the gaps are, waits on that short and wide ball and strokes another late cut, the ball goes into the gap behind square on the off and takes its time before reaching the ropes

12.4

Utseya to Jayawardene, 1 run, pats it down to long on now to turn the strike over

12.5

Utseya to Chandimal, SIX, Chandi-mauled! Jumps out of the crease and drives it high and straight for a huge six. Golf swing that one was.

12.6

Utseya to Chandimal, OUT, this time he's found the fielder, and this time, the fielder has held on to the catch! Similar shot, down the track, towards long off, just not enough to clear the boundary and it was taken easily.
