Glenn McGrath26.578133.011336207
0.1 to ST Jayasuriya, and that's that. just a tame across the left hander, outside the off stump, Jaya prods at it, thick edge to the second slip, that's a tad of a good start for Australia. 0/1
98.3 to RS Kaluwitharana, cuts back off the wicket pushing forward cannons off the elbow onto leg stump. 262/7
106.5 to DNT Zoysa, takes the edge to second slip. 296/10
Damien Fleming2367423.2110910001
87.3 to PA de Silva, awkward backfoot push down the wicket, thick edge flies away for a safe catch to the captain in the gully. 226/6
103.6 to WPUJC Vaas, lifting ball tries to pull and just skies it. Ended up being caught by Puncher on the off side. 288/8
Colin Miller2317213.131039000
41.3 to RP Arnold, jamming onto it, outside the off stump, ball pops up off the bat to the first slip. 100/3
Shane Warne25112931.161302000
28.2 to MS Atapattu, similar to the previous, pitches on the middle stump, Marvan coming forward, just nudges it with the outside edge to the keeper. 80/2
73.5 to DPMD Jayawardene, and yet again, Jaya conspires to dismiss himself, lofting off the toes, getting himself too cramped, easy catch for the wide mid on. 193/4
80.1 to A Ranatunga, down the wicket, mirror image of the Jaya dismissal, lofted to Miller at wide mid on, who does his best to make it look difficult, grabbing it at the second attempt. 206/5

Rangana Herath34.369742.811508201
84.4 to RT Ponting, useless stuff from Ponting, never looked to have any concentration, lunging down the wicket yet again, obvious edge to the slip, but he has the nerve to stand his ground and force the umpire to raise his finger. 189/6
84.6 to SK Warne, stretching forward to defend again, outside edge travels square to the close gully fielder. 189/7
92.3 to DW Fleming, Herath Streak on fire, lovely ball, he flicks it like a cigarette butt and it achieves very impressive turn from outside the off stump, Fleming is left dumbfounded as it crashes into the middle stump. 215/8
96.3 to SR Waugh, sweeping, top edge flies high to the short mid wicket area, Kalu calls for it and collects very nonchalently. 228/10
Muthiah Muralidaran38107151.861855001
55.4 to GS Blewett, jumps down the track The Gap beckons, the ball turns into the Gap and onto the stumps. 138/1
67.6 to JL Langer, pushes forward takes the outside edge to Ranatunga at slip. 160/2
77.3 to MJ Slater, jumps down the track beats him through to the keeper who makes the stumping. 179/3
79.1 to ME Waugh, straight ball jumps a little takes the face of the bat pushed to first slip. 182/4
81.4 to IA Healy, pushes forward comes off pad to bat to the silly point. 188/5
