2.1 to DPMD Jayawardene, Timber... The yorker. Jayawardene backs away again, Lee goes full, and in front of leg, Jayawardene gets bat onto it, but only to guide it to the the off stump. 12/1
5.3 to LD Chandimal, Hit wicket! I don't remember any hit-wickets in T20 internationals. This might well be a first. It's a length ball on the pads, but the extra pace forces him deep into the crease, the bat comes down real late, and the over-balanced Chandimal's front leg goes across and hits the stumps. It takes the Aussies a while to realise they have got a wicket. 42/2
12.3 to KC Sangakkara, what a soft dismissal, lot of premeditation in it as he walks down the wicket. The ball is not nearly full enough, and is also the slower one, and Sanga ends up chipping it straight to midwicket. 94/3

2.2 to SR Watson, Bowled him! This inswinger is perfect. Short of driving length, and starts well outside off so it can hit top of off. Watson tries to smash it through the off side, leaves the bat-pad gap open, and is bowled. ah, there is an inside edge too, which drags the ball to top of middle. 18/1
15.1 to DA Warner, Gone. Kulasekara has been bowling them wide, two of them have been called wide, Warner stretches and finally gets bat to it... and finds extra cover, and it's the same man who dropped him earlier - Dilshan. 105/7
18.5 to SNJ O'Keefe, Timber. Full, in front of off, O'Keefe swings, misses, hears the death rattle. 144/8
4.3 to SE Marsh, Gets a wicket in his first over! This one turned away too, beats an attempt to play it to on, hits him in front. Interesting to see where it pitched. Pitches middle leg, hits him in front of leg after straightening. Would have gone on to hit the leg stumps, I think. 39/2
6.1 to DJ Hussey, Timber... this is top bowling... From round the stumps, angled away, pitching outside off, and back through the gate to hit the top of middle. 49/3
8.1 to CL White, Perera is running through them here. White goes for a huge slog sweep. This is an offbreak from round the stumps, slow through the air, pitches outside off, turns in, beats the shot, and hits the off stump. Perera is blase about it. 63/4
12.2 to SPD Smith, the left-armer's legbreak has done him in. Smith has been jumping out of the crease with no clue as to what to do next, and this team the ball makes its way through the gap between bat and pad. Stumped. 89/5
