43.5 to IJ Harvey, ball left him, a leg cutter and he chased after it and a fine edge to the keeper and more trouble for Australia. 175/7
Pulasthi Gunaratne806007.50237210
Aravinda de Silva1003623.60361110
5.2 to AC Gilchrist, He Walks, confusion galore, a sweep with an inside edgfe to the pad and ball ballooned to leg for Sangakkara to hold and Gilchrist walked, did not look like the ump was going to raise the finger. 34/1
40.3 to GB Hogg, ball turned and he missed a forward push, Sangakkara does a smart stumping, tv called in for the decision. 158/6
Muthiah Muralidaran1002902.90330000
Sanath Jayasuriya1004224.20272000

36.1 to MG Bevan, prods forward, gets and outer thin edge or so ump and Sri Lankans think and he has to go, shouting at himself. 144/5
