    1.6 that dismissal was somewhat telegraphed. He was dancing around at the crease and, in attempting to whip to leg, found only a leading edge. Brett Lee at deep point swallows a looping chance, and Sri Lanka are in deep trouble now 9/2
    0.3 he's gone this time, and that was another cracker - fuller, faster and angling back into the left-hander. No room to play any shot whatsoever, and up goes the finger! 1/1
    9.3 short but straight, Sangakkara tried to make room to free his arms but couldn't keep it down. His attempted cut was wafted straight to backward point, and Sri Lanka are in freefall now 43/6
    2.4 oh dear, this is carnage. Jayawardene was in no position for that stroke - a wristy whip through midwicket that turned into a looping chance for Stuart Clark at mid-on. He did well to dive forward and scoop it off the turf, but a very loose shot from Sri Lanka's captain 11/3
    5.3 he frees his arms this time, but to absolutely no avail - a massive windmill of a wind-up, but a ball that was intended to vanish over the covers instead spirals down to Brett Lee on the third man boundary. Credit to Clark, he built the pressure and Silva cracked 21/4
    7.3 that wasn't very clever. Dilshan tries to improvise, he steps outside off and tries to sweep off a good length, but instead pats a simple chance straight into Gilchrist's gloves as he hops to the leg-side. Another one bites the dust, and with the exception of Jayasuriya, they've all been tame dismissals 30/5
    16.2 slower delivery, the offspinner and the pressure told on Mubarak, trying to clear extra cover with a drive off one knee but Symonds makes no mistake, stepping back and clasping to take Sri Lanka into further trouble 83/8
    9.5 good grief, another one falls. Too straight to take any liberties, but that's exactly what Maharoof did - he made to mow through the covers, but Michael Clarke at point pulls off a blinder, one-handed to his right, an inch off the ground! 43/7
    18.5 a big - but ultimately ineffectual - swing, Vaas down the track and picks out Lee at deep midwicket, five yards in from the rope, who does well stretching out to his right 99/9
    not out
    19.3 a poor shot - indicative of Sri Lanka's day - to finish. A slower ball from Bracken, and the batsman pops up a bottom edge back towards the bowler who has a second to think about before taking confidently 101/10
