Fall of wickets: 1-44 (Hamilton Masakadza, 9.6 ov), 2-49 (Craig Ervine, 11.4 ov), 3-56 (Solomon Mire, 13.3 ov), 4-73 (Sikandar Raza, 16.4 ov), 5-139 (Malcolm Waller, 28.6 ov), 6-140 (Peter Moor, 29.4 ov), 7-171 (Brendan Taylor, 37.4 ov), 8-191 (Kyle Jarvis, 41.3 ov), 9-198 (Graeme Cremer, 43.2 ov), 10-198 (Blessing Muzarabani, 43.6 ov)
41.3 to KM Jarvis, in-drifter that flattens off-stump. Scrambled-seam fullish delivery well outside off. Jarvis is pushing forward without any movement of the feet. Has to bend forward substantially and the ball cuts back in to hit the stumps. No position to play that. 191/8
43.2 to AG Cremer, leg-stump uprooted. Cremer's gone.The last recognised batsman. A back of a length delivery, and some seam movement and probably some reverse swing as it cuts in sharply to get past the inside edge. 198/9
43.6 to B Muzarabani, and now the middle stump has been pegged back. Cross-seamer again. On a length and coming on straight. No feet movement, big gap between bat and pad, and it's all enough for the ball to sneak through. 198/10
9.6 to H Masakadza, Chipped in the air, this time into the lap of short midwicket. Just short of a good length and outside off, the ball sticks in the pitch a touch and foils Hamilton's attempt to pull it over midwicket. He simply lobs a catch. Soft as wax, much-needed breakthrough for SL, who are sweating over the fitness of Pradeep. 44/1
11.4 to CR Ervine, Ervine slumps to his knees after a loose, loose shot. He chases after this full ball wide outside off and aims to drive this on the up with no feet. He sends an outside edge to wide slip. Tharanga secures his second catch. Good, low take. 49/2
13.3 to SF Mire, this is a proper bouncer, aimed at the armpit. Thisara has three wickets in three overs. He springs a surprise on the batsman, who is in no position to hook it away. Instead, Mire gloves a catch behind to Dickwella. 56/3
37.4 to BRM Taylor, Thisara bounces out Taylor. Chest-high short ball on the off stump, cramps the batsman for room and rushes him into a hook shot. Taylor can only top-edge it to long leg. Fourth wicket for Thisara. 171/7
16.4 to Sikandar Raza, square leg has taken a blinder. Kusal Mendis has plucked one out of nowhere. This was the fielder's wicket. And it's the in-form Raza. Sees the length which is full and rightly decides to sweep. Does so uppishly and really it should have gone over Mendis. But he thought otherwise. Flings himself up with his back arched and snaffles it with both hands with very little time to react. 73/4
28.6 to MN Waller, Umpire Masudur Rahman, on debut, raises his finger and gives Waller out caught behind. Full and drifting away outside off - possibly a googly - Waller dares to slog-sweep across the line and against the break. He can only under-edge it behind to Dickwella. 139/5

TOTAL44.5 Ov (RR: 4.50)202/5
Fall of wickets: 1-33 (Upul Tharanga, 9.1 ov), 2-103 (Kusal Perera, 21.5 ov), 3-110 (Kusal Mendis, 23.6 ov), 4-117 (Niroshan Dickwella, 25.3 ov), 5-145 (Asela Gunaratne, 34.4 ov)
34.4 to DAS Gunaratne, Murray takes a stunner. Gunaratne pays the price for shuffling across and then trying to slap it. Cramped himself up and gets an edge. Murray flings himself to his right and grabs an aerial catch. 145/5
9.1 to WU Tharanga, oh my, that's some terrible shot selection. Tries to cut from right in front of the stumps. It has cut in from a back of a length and come in so sharply that it almost took the glove. Inside edge and onto the stumps. 33/1
21.5 to MDKJ Perera, Murray, the sub keeper, snaps up the outside edge. Good length and angling away wide outside off, Kusal Perera has a lazy waft at it a long way away from the body and nicks it behind. No fifty for him and his fitness is under the cloud as well. 103/2
23.6 to BKG Mendis, Kusal Mendis shuffles a fair way across off stump and exposes the leg stump. He grants Muzarabani free access to hit the leg stump. The bowler sends the leg stump cartwheeling. The batsman aimed to clip it away to the leg side but made no contact. No fifty for Mendis as well. Both set batsmen are gone. 110/3
25.3 to N Dickwella, slashes at a short and wide delivery and hang on, he's got a clear edge here. Oh, dear! Sri Lanka making this way harder for themselves. It was turning out to be a cruise. This was really not a delivery that deserved a wicket. 117/4
