    4.6 slower ball and Seth Rance finally has some success! Beautifully disguised slower ball, it was floated up, but not quite in the slot, Mendis was through his bat swing way too soon and offered a simple enough chance to mid-off 34/1
    6.2 awful shot and that's the end of Perera! Slower and angled across, thrown wide outside off, Perera tries to fetch it from there for the sweep, only managing to drag it onto his stumps. His poor run continues 40/2
    13.4 that's an excellent running catch from Santner, Southee breaks the stand. Looked like a knuckle ball well outside off, Avishka swung hard after making room and ended up with a leading edge that went high on the off side and Santner sprinted in from the covers to put in a forward full-length dive and get both his hands under it 108/3
    15.5 the finger goes up in slow motion and it's the big wicket of Dickwella. It was a good and accurate slower delivery from Rance, pitching right on the middle stump and going straight. Dickwella goes well across to flick it on the leg side and misses it completely, probably beaten by pace and that's an easy decision 122/5
    14.1 struck right in front of the stumps and he's plumb, the umpire gives him out and Shanaka asks for a review with only a few seconds left. The full delivery pitched on off and struck him bang in front with the off stump visible, he missed the flick while falling over, there was no edge and that was ramming into the base of middle stump. The review was wasted there 110/4
    18.3 quick delivery, top edge, and taken at point. Jayasuriya probably expected a slower delivery but this one came at 130kmh, it was short too, and Jayasuriya pulled it for a top edge 150/7
    17.5 gets the top of off stump! Hasaranga made some room to try and run the ball fine on off and beat short third man, but the ball comes in from length and beats the bat to knock top of off stump. Good stuff from Kuggeleijn to stick to the basics after that expensive start 146/6
    19.5 toe-edges that straight down to long off. Low full toss around off, Udana swung but couldn't quite middle it and Mitchell got a straightforward catch in the deep 161/8
    19.6 run out on the last ball before Akila didn't react quickly after missing the ball and Sri Lanka end on 161. Rance angled the ball across Akila, he swung and missed it and Malinga was aware to steal a bye on the last ball but Akila was ball-watching and a throw from the keeper to Rance effected the run out 161/9

    1.4 and he throws it away! Flatter and angled in, Munro stepped out, was cramped for room but went through the shot anyway and found long-on 19/1
    3.4 googly, he plants his front foot right across his stumps and has to play around it as a result, can't get any bat on it and the umpire raises the dreaded finger. That's two in the over for Akila, who is quickly running through the visitors 38/3
    3.2 Akila has his revenge immediately! It was a leg break, short in length so he went right back but it kept quite low and hurried on to him, kept gathering pace before finding him plumb in front 36/2
    18.2 he holes out to deep cover. He was probably thinking of a boundary to get the equation down to run a ball. Udana pitched it wide, from short of length, de Grandhomme swung hard but the ball was so far from him that he couldn't quite middle it and handed an easy one to Avishka Fernando who threw the ball in the air in celebration and roared with the crowd 147/4
    19.1 we have a run out first ball and it's Tom Bruce! Mitchell bunted the short and quick ball back to the bowler who turned around quickly and hit the stumps at his end because Bruce was a long way down, eager to take strike 155/5
    19.2 oh my word, Sri Lanka fight back with a legspinner bowling the last over! Mitchell has holed out to long on. Mitchell wanted a big hit, he got a length delivery outside off and swung it against the turn on the leg side, but hardly got the distance, making it an easy catch a few yards inside the boundary at long-on 155/6
