    7.3 slower ball, Bray gets a leading edge which loops into the off side and Arnold races in from cover and takes a good catch diving forward, inches from the ground 28/1
    17.6 goddim. A frustrated sort of shot, skipping down the pitch and trying to flick him over midwicket. But he got a leading edge to Jayasuriya at mid-on who only had to jog back three or four metres to take a simple catch 46/4
    7.5 short of a length outside off, no foot movement and Sangakkara takes an oh-so-routine catch. Two balls, no runs ... the experiment of promoting Botha up the order might not be seen as a complete success ... 28/2
    7.6 the normally cynical office leap up as one at a quite brilliant one-handed catch from Sangakkara. Eion Morgan nicked the ball, Sangakkara was heading to leg, but readjusted and dived to his left, clutching the ball in the fingertips of his left hand. It was almost past him as he grabbed it. Amazing 28/3
    18.2 goddim! A beautiful delivery, albeit not very well played. On off stump, angling across the left hander and turning further away from his meek defensive poke, handing the keeper an easy catch just to his left 48/5
    20.1 another leading edge; another wicket. He tried to turn it to leg but the spin was too great...the ball flies to Jayasuriya at mid-on who takes a useful catch diving forward 49/8
    18.4 gone! Oh dear. Carroll tried to sweep but lost his balance and the doosra from Murali crept beneath his bat to knock over leg stump 48/6
    19.4 what a piece of work that is! That's quite brilliant. Punched back to Maharoof who dived to his right, plucked it out of the air and threw down the stumps in one fluid motion. It actually ricocheted off Johnston's boot. Sri Lanka have been so slick in the field today 49/7
    22.4 oh dear. He shoulders arms, attempting to pad it away and he's trapped absolutely plumb in front. Mark Benson, the umpire, raises his finger as quick as a cat...almost before Murali appealed, even 54/9
    27.4 and he's rapped on the back pad, trying to pull it, and that's utterly, completely plumb 77/10
