0.1

Mpofu to Jayawardene, no run, slowish bouncer outside off to start proceedings, Mahela thinks of the pull and then pulls out

0.2

Mpofu to Jayawardene, FOUR, short again, but this time enough width outside off for Mahela to free his arms and square cut it handsomely for four

0.3

Mpofu to Jayawardene, SIX, wow, this man is in seriously awesome form! Back of good length outside off, Mahela steps out and drives elegantly high and handsome over long off for a six. Who said shots from the book are not useful in this format!

0.4

Mpofu to Jayawardene, no run, better length this time and outside off, Mahela gets forward and defends to the off side

0.5

Mpofu to Jayawardene, no run, straighter, drifts on to middle and leg, Mahela is on the front foot and tucks it away straight to the midwicket fielder

0.6

Mpofu to Jayawardene, FOUR, beautiful! Again, straying on to middle, but it was short of a length. Mahela got his front foot across and eased it with the wrists, in the air, but safely between mid on and midwicket for four. That shot was a lesson in timing!

Sri Lanka 14/0   CB Mpofu 1-0-14-0

19.1

Mpofu to Malinga, 1 run, full toss on leg stump, driven down to long on. Can Sanath unleash some fury please.

19.2

Mpofu to Jayasuriya, 2 runs, short of a length outside off, guided feebly to cover and they run a cheeky couple

19.3

Mpofu to Jayasuriya, 1 run, slow bouncer and Sanath is surprised, plays a feeble pull for a single

19.4

Mpofu to Malinga, no run, good yorker, following Malinga as he runs to the leg side, and he can't squeeze it out

19.5

Mpofu to Malinga, 1 run, short of a length outside off, cut away for a single

19.6

Mpofu to Jayasuriya, 2 leg byes, ain't happening. Sanath looks to pull the slow bouncer, it hits his body and balloons to Taibu, they run through as Taibu misses the stumps at the striker's end, and Malinga hares back for a second.
