Malinga to Sharma, OUT, defends a good length ball just in front of point and pinches a single. But the bat seems to stick in the pitch and its a direct hit from Kapugedera And would you believe it, he's gone! He's well past the crease, but he's entirely in the air. He is ball watching, then eventually sticks his bat down, trying to drag it to safety but it stuck in the pitch and spilled out of his hand. Sri Lanka have a breakthrough! They are still in this! Watch the wicket here. (available in the subcontinent only, excluding Sri Lanka).
