    22.1 and a catch is finally taken. Leask has got a wicket first ball. Floated it up on the stumps, Fernando slog-swept it from down on one knee and the fielder at deep square leg tumbles forward to take the catch 123/1
    33.3 short on off stump, and it's pulled away, more high than long - it seemed to hit higher on the bat than he'd have liked - and it ends up in the hands of the fielder at long-on, who misjudged it a little while running in from the boundary, and ended up having to tumble to his left to take it in the end 204/2
    41.2 cleaned him up! That's a sight to gladden any bowler's heart. Yorker that tails in late into him, leaves him disbalanced and his stumps all over the place. And he's done it to a man who was looking in prime form. Superb bowling 238/5
    33.5 gone first ball! Thisara goes on the attack a little too early! Wheal bowls a shortish ball, angling away from the stumps. Not enough width for the back-foot slash, and he ends up going at it with an angled bat and top-edges to the keeper 205/3
    36.4 down the track, and that string of dot balls has created this wicket! Sole had tied Mathews up and he looks for the big release shot, stepping out and looking to hit down the ground. May have wanted to hit it straighter, back over the bowler's head, but he drags his shot round to the fielder at long-on 210/4

    44.4 picks out long-off The pressure of not getting enough big hits has done him in. Was coming down the track and drove with the turn. Didn't time it perfectly and long-off had to only take a few steps to his left to pouch it safely 258/6
    47.2 flicked straight to deep square leg. Too full and Jeevan got it in the slot on the pads to flick powerfully. Hit it too well in fact but very flat - and it went straight to the man. 280/7
    48.4 got him this time. Tried to go over the top again, but got it off the end of the bat, and Sole ran in from long-off to dive forward for an excellent catch 301/8

    28.4 caught at long-off. Got more height on it than distance. Very fulland he was giving himself room to go straight, but got the toe-end and it swirled to long-off, who made no mistake 153/4
    10.4 Excellent bouncer, Pradeep makes the breakthrough. Gets up above Coetzer's right shoulder, and he's cramped for room on the hook. Can't control it, and ends up hitting it in the air, down the throat of the man at deep square leg 51/1
    12.1 castled him That's pitched on off and jagged back in sharply. MacLeod was looking to drive on the up but the movement meant the ball snaked through the gap between bat and pad and clipped the leg bail off 52/2
    20.5 gone! Length ball close to off stump, and he's played it with half a bat, opening his bat face to try and run it down to third man. The cutter from Udana, straightens off the pitch, and Wallace only manages an edge through to the keeper 95/3
    31.3 gone, he's found a way through. Again he clears his front leg and looks to go inside-out, over the covers. This ball, however, is too full for that, and angling too far in to give him any room. Past the inside edge of his angled bat, and into middle stump 189/6
    30.2 full outside off, goes for the big hit, tries to take on long-off, and can't clear the fielder. Avishka Fernando moves a few steps to his left and takes it well 171/5
    32.1 slower length ball on off stump. Makes room and tries to go over mid-off. Ends up slicing it instead, high in the air to the fielder at extra-cover 191/8
    31.4 another yorker, another wicket. Right up at the base of middle and leg stumps, and he makes room to jab through the off side and misses 189/7

    33.1 Down the track, can't get close enough to the pitch, swings hard but can only send it to long-off on the bounce. Looks to keep strike even when two runs were out of the question, and poor Alasdair Evans is run out by yards at the danger end 199/9
    33.2 down the track, shortens his length a little and he slaps to extra-cover. And what's happened here? They've looked to run a single and there's been a run-out. And that is that for Scotland 199/10
