Lamb to Jayawardene, 1 run, turns on to Mahela's pads, he glances behind square leg


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!

Lamb to Sangakkara, 1 run, slight hint of turn, Sanga works it with the spin square on the off side for one


Lamb to Jayawardene, 2 runs, heaved away, with his trademark timing mid you, towards midwicket for a couple. Tumbling save on the boundary was required to deny him the four


Lamb to Jayawardene, 2 runs, another late cut, off a very full ball, he guides it comfortably, very fine


Lamb to Jayawardene, 2 runs, lofted towards cow corner, where Ervine puts in another fine tap the ball at the last moment back into the playing area to save the boundary

Sri Lanka 94/2   GA Lamb 3-0-23-1

Lamb to Jayawardene, 1 run, jumps out and yorks himself, but gets it down to square leg


Lamb to Mathews, OUT, gone! Mathews goes hard with the slog sweep, but can't time it half as well as his incredibly in-form partner at the other end, it lands in the hands of Erwine at midwicket who jumps at the right instant to pull it in. Great catch!

AD Mathews c Ervine b Lamb 4 (12m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66


Lamb to Kapugedera, 1 run, pitched up on middle, gets forward and drives down to long on


Lamb to Jayawardene, FOUR, makes room and opens the face to send it hurtling at the pace it came down to third man. Lovely!


Lamb to Jayawardene, FOUR, more finesse and elegance, he's just not stopping today! Swishes the wand with minimal fuss to send it flying towards wide long on. Does not help Zim's cause that it was a full toss


Lamb to Jayawardene, 1 run

Sri Lanka 148/5   GA Lamb 4-0-34-2
