Oram to Jayawardene, no run, Jayawardene attempts a cheeky dab to a back of a length ball, beaten by the bounce, which takes the ball to the keeper

14.4

Oram to Jayawardene, no run, superb over from Oram so far, that was full and very wide, just about legit I guess, Jayawardene can't do much with that one

19.3

Oram to Mathews, 1 run, again full and wide, scythes it towards the sweeper, placement isn't too good so it's only a single

19.4

Oram to Jayawardene, FOUR, Jayawardene is in fantastic form, attempts a reverse-paddle, hits it off the back of the bat and it goes just past the keeper and rolls away for four, wonderful innovation

Oram to Jayawardene, no run, good comeback from Oram, a low full toss on middle, Jayawardene gets into a tangle as tries to sweep, the ball rolls near the stumps, the batsmen doesn't know where it is and sets off for a single, then sees it and gets back in time
