3.3 oh my. It's shortish, with plenty of width, and Fletcher simply pokes it to backward point. Didn't seem to go into that shot with full conviction, just pushed at it rather than give it the full-blooded slap, and ended up spooning a fairly straightforward catch to the fielder 13/2
    1.3 stuck on the crease, and Lakmal makes him pay. Went a bit wider of the crease, and bowled it straight and quite full. No footwork as he tries to defend from the crease, and the ball strikes his back pad right in front of middle stump. Given out straight away, and the batsman trots off. Thought of reviewing, decided against it. 2/1
    22.4 gone. Slower offbreak on middle and leg, and Bravo swings across the line and misses. Bravo miss, Mendis hit. 113/6
    7.5 is that out? Given! Umpire thought about it for a while, but it looked out. Samuels shuffled across and this one came in with the angle instead of curling away as it has been doing all through the over. Hits him above the knee roll, so height might be an issue. Samuels has reviewed... He's on his toes, looking to work it across the line. They're checking for the inside edge. I don't think there's one. Height has to be the main issue, but it only has to clip, because the on-field umpire gave this out. Umpire's call it is, and Samuels has to go. Ball-tracking suggests it would have shaved the leg bail. 24/3
    15.1 bowled him, and that's Jayasuriya's first ODI wicket. Fired in quick from wide of the crease, around the wicket, and it goes on with the arm. Carter, trying to make room for the late cut, is cramped and bowled 42/4
    21.2 full on off stump, and it's too full for Russell to get the elevation he needs. Tries to get under the ball to launch it over long-off, and ends up scooping a simple catch to the fielder instead 100/5
    24.1 length ball on middle and off, and once again Mendis profits from bowling stump-to-stump. Brathwaite swings across the line, and misses as the ball skids through off the pitch 130/7
    25.6 good ball to end. An effort ball dug in short outside off. Goes over Ramdin's bat as he attempts to carve it through the off side, and Kusal underarms direct at his end to run out Holder as they try to sneak a bye 159/8

    4.5 back of a length ball on off stump, and I think that's a run-out. Poked it to backward point and they took off for the single. Went straight to the fielder, Carter, and the direct hit finds Perera well short. Superb throw with only one stump to aim at. 46/1
    12.5 gone. Back of a length, angling in to cramp him for room, and he nicks it to the keeper as he tries to carve it through point 104/3
    10.2 wide of the crease, fuller, angling away, and Thirimanne drives away from his body and nicks to the keeper, who takes a good catch tumbling to his left. Lovely length from Brathwaite. An old-fashioned good ball. Why haven't West Indies tried to do this more often? 89/2
    15.4 down the track, and he goes hard at the shortish ball outside off, ends up slicing it to third man, who takes a good catch falling forward. Don't know why he went for that shot with the required rate as manageable as it is 120/4
    18.6 bowled him! Three wickets in one over, and Narine is turning this around. Another big offbreak, pitches leg, hits off. Tentative footwork from Gunathilaka, and he's pushed down the wrong line 133/7
    18.1 down the track, and that's Narine's first wicket. Got too close to the pitch of the ball, maybe, and got no elevation, hit it straight to Carlos Brathwaite at mid-on 132/5
    18.3 and again. Looks to open his bat face and steer a straight ball into the off side, and the ball straightens and bowls him off the inside edge. A forgettable debut innings for Shehan Jayasuriya 132/6
    23.3 bowled him! Length ball, nipped back from outside off, and it went through the gate and crashed into middle stump. Was looking to play through mid-off, maybe, but played too far in front of his body 152/8
    not out
    23.4 another excellent full ball, and again there's no footwork. Nips back, hits the pad, and the umpire immediately upholds the lbw appeal. Malinga reviews. Is there an inside-edge on this? Nope. Straight onto back pad, and I think that's crashing into the stumps. Let's check with ball tracking anyway... I think that'll hit some part of leg stump. Yup. A big part of leg stump. Sri Lanka are nine down. 152/9
