Price to Jayawardene, 1 run, and that's that! We have been privileged to watch one of the highest quality innings you will see, in any format! Full on leg stump, driven serenely down to long on and it is three-figures for Mahela.


Price to Kapugedera, OUT, gone. It is on the pads and Kapu slog sweeps it in the air towards square leg, where Masakadza runs in and takes the catch. In the process, he puts his knee down and takes out a bit of the earth from the Providence outfield.

CK Kapugedera c Masakadza b Price 13 (12m 6b 0x4 2x6) SR: 216.66


Price to Jayawardene, OUT, and at the end of the day, he proves he is human after all! Mahela jumps out again, looks to loft over long on and mis-hits one for the first time today. It makes contact high on the bat and goes straight up for a simple catch at long on. Please stand and applaud for this wonderful innings.

DPMD Jayawardene c Cremer b Price 100 (80m 64b 10x4 4x6) SR: 156.25
