BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Lasith Malinga403127.7563000
16.6 to JP Faulkner, 114.1ks slower dipping yorker from Malinga. How does he do that? Slings in on middle, dips and kisses the front pad. Nogajski rules him out. Hotspot picks up an inside edge. Faulkner has to go, though. 144/6
18.3 to TD Paine, Malinga implores, Paine given out lbw. Another slower full ball from Malinga. Dips in front of Paine, who was shaping up for a cute little scoop over Dickwella's head. He is pinned in front. Second wicket for Malinga. It was crashing into leg stump. The ball looped off the pad into the gloves of the keeper. 162/7
Nuwan Kulasekara403147.7593020
14.2 to TM Head, The drop costs Sri Lanka nothing. Munaweera will be relieved. Length and angling away outside off, bounces at the batsman. Head simply steers it into the gloves of Dickwella. 121/4
19.3 to PJ Cummins, Kulasekara can bowl yorkers too. Yorker, tails in late into the leg stump. Pings the toe and disturbs the leg stump. Too good for a lower-order batsman. It would have even dismissed a top-order batsman. 169/8
19.5 to AJ Tye, appeal for lbw, Simon Fry now raises his finger. Full and swerves in to beat the inside edge - Tye was looking to work it across the line - traps him in front of leg. But I guess this was heading down leg. 173/9
19.6 to JA Richardson, bowled'em. Kulaseakara closes the innings with a wicket. Very full on the leg stump, kisses the pad and hits the stumps. Richardson does not connect with the wild slog. He bags a golden duck on debut. Three wickets in four balls from Kulasekara. 173/10
Vikum Sanjaya403228.0082110
2.4 to AJ Finch, No fireworks from Finch in front of his home fans. Sanjaya has his man. Good length ball, angled in and kicks up at the batsman again. Finch is early into the shot, looking to work to leg. He jumps off the ground, and ends up lobbing a return catch. This surface has something in it for the seamers. 18/1
13.2 to M Klinger, a big appeal for caught behind from the bowler and the keeper. Nogajski takes his own sweet time and then raises his finger. Good length and outside off, Klinger reaches out with his hands, swishes and snicks behind. The snicko detects the outside edge. End of a sluggish knock from Klinger. 113/3
Dilshan Munaweera1022022.0021300
Asela Gunaratne302618.6630200
6.4 to BR Dunk, bowled'em. Just 88ks, the lack of pace does 'em in. Looks like another slower cutter, dips, creating distance between the bat and the pitch. Dunk aims a big swipe and does not touch it. Asela kisses the off stump. 63/2
Seekkuge Prasanna402616.5081000
15.6 to AJ Turner, Excellent catch from Siriwardana at long-off. Starkly contrasts with those drops from Kapu and Munaweera. Tossed up and spins away outside off, Turner flat-bats this legbreak in the air. Siriwardana moves swiftly to his right, dives across, and snaps it up. 134/5

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Ashton Turner201517.5063000
0.5 to WU Tharanga, Turner strikes in his first over. Arm ball on middle, no turn. Tharanga slogs it in the air and offers catching practice to debutant Richardson at deep midwicket. Just two fielders outside the ring and Tharanga picked out Richardson to perfection. 5/1
Pat Cummins302819.3365010
12.3 to CK Kapugedera, Well-judged catch from Dunk running across to his right from mid-off and completing an overhead catch. Good length ball on middle and off, Kapu looks to loft it over the fielder. He does not time it well enough as the bat twists in his hands. 92/6
James Faulkner403228.0064000
2.2 to N Dickwella, Dickwella attempts the scoop and the ball balloons into the gloves of the keeper. It bounces more than Dickwella expected. He pre-meditates, going low, and attempting to dink it over his shoulder. The ball misses the bat, misses the glove, grazes the shoulder on its way to Paine. 22/2
15.2 to S Prasanna, Holes out to Head at long leg running in and sliding on his knees. Throat-high short ball, seam-up, cramps Prasanna for room. He attempts another hook and falls this time with Head gulping down the top edge. 119/7
Jhye Richardson302418.0072100
3.3 to BKG Mendis, Third-ball wicket for Richardson on debut. His team-mates mess his hair up. Back of a length and outside off, skids through in the corridor. Mendis swishes a long way away from hid body and nicks it behind. The outside edge flies to the right of Paine. He stretches across and completes a fine catch. 27/3
Andrew Tye403739.25103210
4.2 to EMDY Munaweera, length ball on off, bursts off the deck and leaves Munaweera in a tangle. Chest-high ball, Munaweera throws his gloves in front of his face. The ball takes the glove and Paine grabs another smart catch to his right. SL four down for 40. 40/4
4.3 to TAM Siriwardana, Two wickets in two balls for Tye. Another batsman has been bounced out. Back of a length and jumps at Siriwardana, cramping him for room. He cuts tamely, and finds backward point. 40/5
19.1 to KMDN Kulasekara, Kulasekara holes out. Has he crossed over to the other end? Knuckle ball, slow and outside off, Kula aims to go over cover. He only toe-ends it into the air. Klinger completes a fine overhead catch at extra-cover. 160/8
