32.1 finds deep square leg with a lofted sweep. The shot was on. It was full, it was at middle stump, and there was a big gap behind square on the leg side. He took it on, like a man on 111 should. But Pradeep ran nicely to his right, most of it backwards, and composed himself nicely to hold on 191/3
    7.3 there it is. Gets it right up to the batsman, keeps his line and angle intact. No feet from Mire once more. Plays with an angled bat and he's struck right in front of middle and off. Plumb in front. 39/1
    26.4 heaves it into the wind.... and straight to long-on! He had a fifty for the taking, but in going for quick runs, in trying to keep Sri Lanka under the pump, he's given his wicket away. Good innings - in that he didn't look good at the start, but gutsed it out - comes to an end 166/2
    34.5 goes for the sweep and misses...and the umpire's given it! It strikes him on leg stump and it's very full. Doesn't look out on first glance but it's been given. They have reviewed. This looks like it has marginally pitched in line. It's a slider from the bowler, so it's not spinning down a long way. In slow-mo, I reckon it will be umpire's call. In fact, it's hitting leg stump comfortably. It's not called umpire's call, technically, but the umpire's call was perfect. Good decision. 206/4
    44.4 walks across the stumps, shows all of them and looks to ramps this fine. Questionable choice given Gunaratne's pace, but he's constantly been trying to hit him behind square. This is a good length ball and it crashes into the leg stump 256/5
    45.6 rolls his fingers on the low full toss, gets it at middle stump. Waller walks across to try and flick this behind square. Misses big time. Full toss on the pads in front of middle stump and even in this match, that is out 263/6
    not out
    48.5 can't beat the wind this time. He got good bat on this slog to an overpitched ball on leg stump. But you could see the ball struggling to travel. Hangs and hangs and hangs, then sits neatly in long-on's grasp 293/7
    48.6 back of a length outside off, looks to push it it into the leg side but there isn't enough turn. It's pushed back down the pitch...and for some reason, Cremer has run down the pitch. Aimless. Sandakan picks up, runs back, and Cremer has to go for none off none 293/8
