Chaminda Vaas741532.14363000
4.5 to AF Sattaur, doesnt get fwd and Vaas gets one to straighten hitting him on middle and leg and the Umpire could have given that with his eyes closed. 6/2
6.6 to DR Chumney, beaten for pace as he was looking to pull the bat inside but instead Vaas finds the edge and the keeper takes a regulation catch as he barely had to move. 11/3
8.1 to IS Billcliff, Billcliff goes back and the ball straightens hitting him on the back leg right in front of middle. 12/4
Prabath Nissanka711241.71382011
1.4 to JM Davison, nips back cutting him in half and finding an inside edge for Sangakkara to take a good diving catch away to his left. 0/1
9.1 to NA de Groot, holds its line as he got in close, a tad high perhaps but the Umpire didnt think so and he is on his way. 12/5
9.2 to I Maraj, stays a little low (those cracks perhaps) and traps him plumb in front hitting him well below the roll. 12/6
11.2 to JV Harris, tucked up hits him in the ribs, bat swung round as he removed the right hand and connected with the leg stump, referred to the 3rd umpire and the replay is clear. 21/7
Muthiah Muralidaran2.40311.12130000
18.4 to A Codrington, and thats the lot as he beat him in the flight and split middle and off and see Canada record the losest total in any One Day International. 36/10
Dilhara Fernando20422.00100010
15.1 to S Thuraisingam, stays back on his wickets and was looking to wipe it away is struck on the pads on what looked like middle and leg. 31/8
17.6 to A Bagai, lifting one and finds a healthy edge flying to Jayawardene waiting expectently at 2nd slip and going onto his knees to take it neatly. 36/9
