16.4

Broad to Perera, 1 wide, oh dear, Broad gets this all wrong, slower ball, of course, but well down the leg side, and not even Broad could moan with the umpire's call there

16.4

Broad to Perera, no run, nicely done, slightly fuller this time, slow once more, Perera tries to inject some pace of it, but can't and it trickles into the midwicket region

16.5

Broad to Perera, 1 run, this time Perera manages to get it away into the leg side, not very far, but well enough for a single

Sri Lanka 95/5   NLTC Perera 1* (2b)
18.1

Broad to Perera, 2 runs, a touch shorter, and Perera swings it away down to deep midwicket, big boundaries on this ground, and he collects a couple

18.2

Broad to Perera, 1 run, much quicker short ball this time, Perera is waiting in position to heave it into the leg side, connects well enough to send it down to Collingwood at deep midwicket for a singe

18.4

Broad to Perera, no run, shorter and slower this time, Perera looks to heave this all the way to Sri Lanka, head up, bat swishing, and fails to connect

18.5

Broad to Perera, 1 run, this time the leg-side swipe works well enough to collect down to midwicket

Sri Lanka 118/5   NLTC Perera 5* (6b)

Sidebottom to Perera, 1 run, very good from Sidebottom first up, aims for the yorker and lands it perfectly, Perera swishes it down to long on, but only one there

Sidebottom to Perera, 1 run, full yoker, touch of reverse swing as well, Perera digs it out into the off side

Sri Lanka 123/5   NLTC Perera 7* (8b)
