Eric Upashantha1014314.30395040
7.3 to NC Johnson, pull shot, not onto it at all, ball loops into the air, and Wickers runs around easily on mid on to take a catch in the mid wicket area. 21/1
Pramodya Wickramasinghe1013033.00433000
10.5 to PA Strang, trying to defend outsid ethe off stump, inside edge clips the leg stump, that's the end of the pinch hitter. 34/2
20.4 to GW Flower, pathetic shot, reaching to far for it, trying the cover drive, a thin edge makes its merry way into the keeper's gloves. 81/4
22.4 to ADR Campbell, playing wide across the line, just a faint outside edge, Campbell isn't happy, but it's hard to tell if he's cranky with the umpire or peeved with himself. 89/5
Mahela Jayawardene10808.0021000
Muthiah Muralidaran1022922.90422010
25.5 to GJ Whittall, trying to play it on the on side again, oh dear oh dear, leading edge again, but this time there *is* a slip, Ranatunga juggles the catch before diving and rolling and catching. 94/6
46.6 to HH Streak, another reverse sweep, what a load of rubbish, are they deliberately trying to embarress themselves? easy catch to the square leg. 176/9
Sanath Jayasuriya702814.00261100
39.4 to A Flower, reverse sweep, top edge loops over his should and Kalu dives and takes the catch on the on side, stupid shot, there's a lesson to be leant there. 162/8

Eddo Brandes802803.50312020
Neil Johnson712914.14283050
5.4 to ST Jayasuriya, the national shot of Sri Lanka, top edge off a cut wide of the off stump, Strang gratefully receives it at a widish 3rd man. 13/1
Heath Streak813023.75311060
36.3 to MS Atapattu, wild drive and at the covers, edges from outside the off stump, good safe catch by Campbell standing at about 2nd slip. 150/5
38.5 to DPMD Jayawardene, seaming in, into the pads, big appeal, in line with off stump, Bucknor nods his head and raises the finger. 157/6
Guy Whittall1013533.50413021
19.1 to RS Mahanama, harmless ball outside the off stump, Mahanama with a terrible misjudgement, trying to glide it to the 3rd man, instead comes off the back of the bat into the stumps. 75/2
25.2 to PA de Silva, what a pair of whittlers! pull shot, not onto it at all, flies up off the top edge and an easy catch to the mid on. 93/3
29.2 to A Ranatunga, how feeble, just dabbing it off the leg stump and back to the bowler, almost as though he was playing french cricket. 108/4
