1.1 Gone! Sanga is gone. Full in length, around the middle and leg stump line, Sanga tried to on drive, gets a leading edge as the ball angles across him and is snaffed up by Sammy at short cover 3/1
    39.1 Fab work from Ramdin. It was fired in quick, outside leg, Udawatte missed his sweep and Ramdin gathered it and quickly took the bails off as Udawatte dragged his feet outside the crease. Udawatte falls after making 73. Ramdin has had a great day behind the stumps. A very good catch down the leg side and now this. 172/5
    10.2 What a catch by Powell at short fine-leg! Fabulicious! Mahela had shuffled across to the off stump and pulled a short-of-length delivery to the leg side. Powell jumped, with his right hand stretched out, and it popped up off his palm and looked like it would fall to the ground behind him but he quickly swivelled around and lunged to take the rebound. 37/2
    11.6 Ramdin takes a very good catch down the leg side. It was a delivery heading down leg, Silva tried to flick it away but got a thin edge and Ramdin dived to his left to take it. Not a delivery that you would think would fetch a wicket but then Powell has got his man. 44/3
    29.6 Gayle has been really slowing the pace down and gets a wicket for his effort. It was a on a length, outside the off stump and stopped and bounced on Kapugedera who was into the drive and ended up patting a dolly back to Gayle. Very soft dismissal. 128/4
    48.3 caught at long on. He tried to repeat the stroke but is caught near the ropes. But it has been a very good effort from Dilshan. He kept taking singles at the start, rotated the strike very well before exploding in the end. 251/6
    49.4 he moved outside off - way outside actually - and couldn't connect with his paddle shot and is cleaned up. Valuable contribution, though. A breezy 41. 257/7
    not out
    49.6 Chaotic end! Two direct hits! The batsman missed a full delivery but ran for the bye. Ramdin's throw missed the stumps, Taylor picked it up, turned around and broke the stumps at the non-striker's end. They run for the rebound. Another direct hit, from Ramdin, comes at the striker's end. Taufel takes the safe route and goes to the third umpire who rules that Taylor's throw had caught the batsman short. Phew!. So no run off the final ball. 257/8
