    45.1 Udana strikes again!Another slower full one on the stumps, dipped quite late as Hope was shaping to sweep, misses the bat, takes a bit of the back pad and rolls back on to the stumps. Good knock but timely wicket again for Sri Lanka 230/6
    3.2 cleaned him up! The length was the key, full enough but not a driving length, he pushed at it with his hands way in front leaving a gap between bat and pad, which the nip back in from Perera found its way through to crash into the stumps 10/1
    19.4 mix-up and a run out. This was pushed into a gap on the offside, and for some reason, Bravo was very keen on the single. He's halfway down the pitch when he gets sent back, but he's nowhere close to making it back as a good bounce throw comes in from the advancing point fielder, and Hasaranga takes the bails off. The end of what was a promising innings. 87/2
    35.6 timber! Pradeep has deserved that. Though it's not a particularly great ball that gets him the wicket. This is a length ball, pushed through outside off stump. Chase tries to smack this over the top of the offside infield, but can only get an inside edge that ricochets on to middle stump. A little relief for SL, just as it looked like these two were ready to accelerate. 172/3
    39.3 The slower ball has done it for Udana! Back of the hand again, with a little bit of side spin to boot. Pooran was waiting forever for this one, which pitched on a length outside off stump. He tried to lift it over cover, but could only hit it low to the fielder. No power in that shot. Karunaratne takes a good catch to his left. 193/4
    41.6 short one, it's quick one, Pollard goes for the pull but is late on it, top edges it high in the air towards fine leg where Sandakan takes a tumbling catch after not looking entirely comfortable under it, probably unsure where the line was, but hangs on.. Massive, massive boost for Sri Lanka 207/5
    46.4 attempted yorker, full and straight, chipped over the bowler off a leading edge, Holder wants to retain strike and turns for the second, his partner hesitates and by then they are stranded mid-pitch as there is a direct hit at the non striker's end, ending Holder's stay in the middle 240/7

    20.1 strangle down the leg side? Yes, and that's terribly unlucky for Avishka Fernando who played a superb knock and looked good for a lot more than fifty. It was angled in, he instinctively looked to glance it fine but only managed a thin edge down the leg to Shai Hope as Joseph keeps West Indies in the hunt with a timely strike 121/2
    17.6 no doubts this time. This was tighter into the stumps, and again Karunaratne is playing a shot, pushing away from his body, trying to find the gap between cover and point. Holder's height and the little extra bounce that he's getting, though, has troubled him all over, and this is no exception. This time he gets a discernible edge through. Hope takes the ball above his head, and Holder has the breakthrough! He's understandably ecstatic. 111/1
    37.4 and that's not smart batting from Kusal Perera. Gets a short ball, he waits back for it and pulls it in the air, but Darren Bravo, at deep midwicket, is all over this one. He surges forward as the ball drops on him, and puts in a dive to snatch the ball inches from the ground. Makes sure he clings to it even as his elbows hit the ground. Some poor batting, and excellent catching. 215/6
    26.6 classic legspinner's dismissal, to a full toss! How often have we seen this happen? A juicy full toss around off asking to be hit, but instead of the controlled option of going through the off side, Mendis looks to drag it over the leg side and doesn't make good enough contact offering a simple catch to mid-on and West Indies, who looked down and out, a lifeline 153/3
    28.3 full and swinging away a touch, Mathews follows it with his hands and there's a massive appeal as he's seemingly beaten. There was a noise but could have been bat hitting ground, West Indies review, however. And it's an excellent review, replay confirms that it took the bottom edge and Joseph, who has been quite wayward strikes again as West Indies continue to chip away. This is beautifully poised as the players take drinks 168/4
    36.1 Another one goes! Just when SL start to look mildly comfortable, they do something to let West Indies back in. DdeS is down the pitch to Walsh Jr. but doesn't get anywhere near the pitch of the ball. Goes through with the lofted straight drive anyway, and it hangs in the air. Keemo Paul makes some serious ground, running in from long off, to get himself under this one, and completes the catch with a slide. Wonderful athleticism. 201/5
    42.4 short one on middle, Perera pulls hard but pulls uppishly and holes out to deep midwicket! Another batsman throws his wicket away in a rush of blood and West Indies are allowed back into the game again. It was a good, counter-attacking knock but with the equation heavily in his team's favour all he had to do was hold his nerve, but he didn't and the match is back in the balance 253/7

    45.3 edged and taken, Udana goes for a duck! Keemo Paul hasn't had the best day but produces a crucial wicket with a length ball that climbed on to Udana who had a little poke at it to offer Shai Hope his fourth catch of the afternoon 262/8
    49.1 full toss, pushed to square leg, they take off for the single but a direct hit at the non striker's helps West Indies cling on by a slender thread. One to get, one wicket in hand, but importantly for Sri Lanka, the calm Hsaranga is on strike 289/9
