Suresh Perera403107.75122110
Russel Arnold803414.25283001
48.3 to A Symonds, makes room outside leg stump, hammers it over the mid off, looks like another boundary coming up, but out comes Murali from nowhere, brilliant catch at wide long off. 235/9
Mahela Jayawardene401614.00110000
14.6 to AC Gilchrist, totally out of touch today, managed to bludgeon his way to 38, mishit in the air, Murali takes an excellent running backwards catch from mid off. 83/1
Upul Chandana1003533.50310010
25.2 to DS Lehmann, throws it up, pitched up, wide of the off stump, Lehmann going for the cover drive, totally beaten, leg break cannons into the off stump. 131/3
31.3 to SR Waugh, finally succumbs to his favourite sweep/hoik over the mid wicket, unfortunately it has grabbed the top edge, travelled high in the air, and an easy catch for the man with the gloves. 160/4
33.1 to ME Waugh, and so he goes the tonk, jumping down the pitch, trying the cross bat loft over the mid on, top edge flies high in the air, safely caught by Sid at cover. 167/5
Muthiah Muralidaran1005035.00232120
24.1 to RT Ponting, onto one knee and a real slog of a pull, excellent catch by the mid wicket, ball was hit very hard. 122/2
40.5 to DR Martyn, oh dear, a right hander gets bowled around his legs by an off spinner, how did he manage that. 200/6
42.6 to MG Bevan, cutting, crouching low, bottom edge bounces into the off stump. 211/7

Glenn McGrath1005225.20342032
4.1 to ST Jayasuriya, cut shot from Jaya, hit with his typical strength and timing, but in the air, Ponting dives to his right from point and snares a brilliant one handed catch mid air. 15/1
12.1 to DPMD Jayawardene, and bingo gringo, too keen for the cut shot, faint top edge, obvious catch to Gilchrist, 1st ball quacker. 45/3
Adam Dale1022712.70410010
13.3 to SI de Saram, getting over-jiggy with it, poor batting, trying to slam it through the mid wicket, looked like he'd never seen a slower ball in his life, the ignomy of being clean bowled by Dale. 48/4
Andrew Symonds502204.40190011
Damien Martyn1003013.00381020
39.2 to WPUJC Vaas, slower ball, Vaas plays it an hour or so too early, and then the ball keeps low anyway, into the off stump, Martyn looks pretty chuffed as his bowling averages comes down in double figures. 157/7
Shane Warne905225.77253031
44.2 to LPC Silva, Silva just getting too courageous, down the wicket, playing the drive, misjudges it, misses and a simple stumping is effected. 197/8
46.6 to ASA Perera, walks down the pitch to pad it away forward of the covers. 214/9
Steve Waugh3.102618.2153010
47.1 to UDU Chandana, terrific hit, Chandana whacks it across the line, looks good for a 6, but the ball drops quickly, and Symonds runs around well at forward square leg. 214/10
