Fall of wickets: 1-12 (Dilruwan Perera, 4.4 ov), 2-32 (Sanath Jayasuriya, 9.2 ov), 3-42 (Kumar Sangakkara, 12.3 ov), 4-61 (Chamara Kapugedera, 19.5 ov), 5-125 (Mahela Jayawardene, 31.6 ov), 6-185 (Tillakaratne Dilshan, 44.2 ov), 7-206 (Chamara Silva, 47.4 ov), 8-208 (Lasith Malinga, 48.2 ov), 9-212 (Muthiah Muralidaran, 49.2 ov), 10-221 (Nuwan Kulasekara, 49.6 ov)
4.4 to MDK Perera, but he's got him this time...with a slower ball, a yorker which ducks in low and in line with middle, zooms under the bat and traps him plumb. 12/1
48.2 to SL Malinga, short ball, which is pulled high and higher over towards Hopes who has to come in a fair few metres, the batsman not getting over it and he goes for a golden duck in the interests of trying to boost the score. 208/8
9.2 to ST Jayasuriya, the ball climbs on him outside off and Jayasuriya prods an outside edge through on the front foot, Hussey takes the catch at first slip. 32/2
47.4 to LPC Silva, over the wicket now, the batsman comes down the ground and drives up hard and high out to Johnson at long-on who holds on just below his neck. 206/7
49.2 to M Muralidaran, comprehensively yorked, Muralitharan backing away to try to club-cut to the covers and exposing his stumps which are subsequently shattered as he chops back on. 212/9
49.6 to KMDN Kulasekara, slower ball aimed on off, the batsman goes to pull, is through the shot too quickly and leaves the hugest gap for the ball to go on and crahs into the top of off, leaving Bracken with four wickets. 221/10
12.3 to KC Sangakkara, boomed in from over the wicket in line with off, Sangakkara's head and bat go one way, the ball the other, hard through to Hussey who takes another catch at first slip, this one clinging on well with two hands. 42/3
19.5 to CK Kapugedera, moved off the pitch, left him a touch, and Kapugedera leaves his bat dangling away from his body, the ball travelling on through to Gilchrist who takes it without alarm. 61/4
31.6 to DPMD Jayawardene, a huge and sustained appeal as the umpire deliberates before giving him out, trapped on the front foot by the flipper, moving back in to middle and off. 125/5

TOTAL48.1 Ov (RR: 4.31, 225 Mins)208
Fall of wickets: 1-107 (James Hopes, 14.4 ov), 2-113 (Adam Gilchrist, 15.4 ov), 3-115 (Michael Clarke, 18.3 ov), 4-115 (Ricky Ponting, 19.3 ov), 5-115 (Andrew Symonds, 20.1 ov), 6-123 (Brad Haddin, 23.2 ov), 7-142 (Michael Hussey, 29.3 ov), 8-158 (Brad Hogg, 34.5 ov), 9-173 (Mitchell Johnson, 39.1 ov), 10-208 (Brett Lee, 48.1 ov)
23.2 to BJ Haddin, cracking yorker right up there on middle and the umpire needed only a fraction of a second to put up the finger. Haddin was completely beaten with the change of pace there, stabbing down on the ball. 123/6
15.4 to AC Gilchrist, fabulous catch by Malinga! Gilchrist goes for the aerial drive once more, booming the ball up to long-off where Malinga charges round and takes the ball in front of him on the slide, great catch to end a great innings. 113/2
19.3 to RT Ponting, a great ball to dismiss Ponting, beating his outside edge as he squares up to get behind it, the ball pitching outside off and would have gone on to take middle and off. 115/4
18.3 to MJ Clarke, cleans him up with a beauty! Clarke's gone for a duck and starts the long walk back after the ball pitched outside off and nipped back to hit the stumps. 115/3
20.1 to A Symonds, down leg and Symonds appears to have strangled it through to the keeper, there was certainly a snick and indeed he has been given!. 115/5
39.1 to MG Johnson, catch of the night, sends tingles down the spine, and an inspired change too by the same man Jayawardene. Well bowled, drawing him into the drive, and a thick edge skews very wide of Jayawardene at first slip but he leaps out of nowhere with a horizontal dive to snatch it to his left. 173/9
14.4 to JR Hopes, ah, what's gone on here, the ball past him and nudges the off stump and the bail comes off, it takes a while to realise he's actually bowled, as it could also have been a stumping by Sangakkara and Hopes had moved in front of the stumps so you couldn't see at first look whether he was bowled or not. 107/1
34.5 to GB Hogg, a huge shout from Sangakkara as Muralitharan plants the ball on middle and leg, Hogg presses forward too late and is rapped in line with off. 158/8
29.3 to MEK Hussey, terrific delivery to clean bowl Hussey, the ball curling in and knocking back the stumps, the batsman caught in the crease as he stands back to defend. 142/7
48.1 to B Lee, another inspired decision by Jayawardene! Jayasuriya strikes with his first delivery of the match at a crucial time, the batsman trying to pull across the line and he got an inside edge back on to leg stump and all the stumps wobble. 208/10
