4.5 This was coming. Kulasekara has been harassing Hamilton with his two-card trick. In and out. Out and in. This one shapes away from short of length, Hamilton had stepped out, trying to counter the swing, but this one kicks up and cuts away. He had a poke at it and the ball took the outside edge. Gone! 11/1
    9.3 What a stunner from Samaraweera at Gully. It was a short of length delivery outside off and Taylor just opened his bat-face and tried to guide it to third man. The ball flew low to right of Samaraweera who swooped forward to take it inches of the turf. And boy is he delirious or what?! Big wicket this. 29/2
    35.5 Almost like Taylor. Weak shot. It was a short delivery outside off and Taibu almost guided it straight, tapped it straight, to backward point. What a soft dismissal. What a fine knock, though. He led Zimbabwe's revival 139/4
    16.3 Ervine is run out It was pushed towards backward point and there is confusion between the two over the single. Taibu takes couple of steps down the track and Ervine rushes half-way. Taibu stops and turns. too late for Ervine who is unable to beat the throw which comes in to Angelo who breaks the stumps 49/3
    41.4 Clatter! Jeevan has nailed Lamb. It landed on the middle stump line and turned. Lamb went for the big slog sweep but no wood on leather. It was leather on the wood. Gone! 163/6
    40.1 Tickets please here! Mendis flicks it full on a length and Elton chips it tamely to covers. And Zimbabwe continue to wobble 155/5
    43.3 But he is gone now! Again looking to be aggressive, he went down the track and heaved it straight to long-on! 200 looks a long way from here 178/7
    45.5 The death rattle! Full in length, fast, and tilts in to move past the waft, hits the pad and clips the stumps! 189/8
    not out
    46.4 And he is gone now. Full delivery on the middle, the googly this time, Price shovels it straight to short midwicket. And then they were one. 190/9
    48.6 They don't get to 200. It was pushed to right of short midwicket and they go for the run. Dilshan swoops in, fires a low through to Chandimal who breaks the stumps 199/10
