8.1

West to Jayasuriya, 1 run, too straight by West and swept past short fine-leg, who parries it to a wider fine-leg

8.2

West to Jayawardene, FOUR, crashed over cover for four. Fine shot

8.3

West to Jayawardene, 2 runs, driven across the turf out to the off side

8.4

West to Jayawardene, 2 runs, tossed up on his legs, he gives himself room and comfortably works it out to deep extra cover

8.5

West to Jayawardene, FOUR, well wide of the off stump. Poor bowling, really, for such a leg-side field. Hammered square of the wicket

8.6

West to Jayawardene, 2 runs, leg-side this time, but he's paced his little nudge and placed it well too, for two

Sri Lanka 57/2   RM West 2-0-17-0

14.1

14.2

West to Jayawardene, no run, that's better, a yorker that Jayawardene digs out into the off side

14.3

West to Jayawardene, no run, picks out backward point with another cut, just missing the placement in that shot

14.4

West to Jayawardene, 1 run, tucked off the toes to short fine-leg, non-striker makes a quick call and hustles through

14.5

West to Mubarak, 1 run, swept from outside off in front of square out to deep midwicket

14.6

West to Jayawardene, 1 run, driven down to long off, a decent comeback from West

16.1

West to Mubarak, 1 run, full outside off, squeezed into the off side

16.3

West to Jayawardene, 1 run, driven elegantly up to long off

16.4

West to Mubarak, 1 run, uses his feet and drives out to deep cover

16.5

West to Jayawardene, FOUR, top shot, backs away outside leg stump which allows him to drive inside-out over extra cover...he beats the cover sweeper, that was Jayawardene at his best

16.6

West to Jayawardene, FOUR, well placed sweep this time as West loses his line on leg stump, paddled round the corner and beats short fine-leg...this is a top innings

Sri Lanka 124/4   RM West 4-0-34-0
