View dismissal CJ Chibhabha c Kulasekara b Maharoof 25 63 35 2 0 71.42
21.1 gone!! Maharoof has been gifted a wicket here, that was pitched full on middle and off, Chibhabha came down the track and tried to loft it over mid on, got the leading edge and Kulasekara at mid on ran back a few steps to take a well judged catch. There was no need for that shot but Chibhabha lost his concentration there! 83/3

27.2 gone! bowled flat and quick on middle and leg from round the wicket, pitches on a good length and straightens, Chigumbura comes forward to defend but makes no contact with the bat, struck low on the pads, Murali goes up, and the umpire raises his finger.
