Jerome Taylor813204.00311140
Daren Powell1013823.80342022
5.5 to WU Tharanga, he's gone! An early strike! There was just a little bit of movement and the batsman plays all around it, two stumps being knocked out of the ground in the process. Well, Powell deserved that one - he's been asking the questions and finally he has his answer. 18/1
38.4 to ST Jayasuriya, a wide full toss, Jayasuriya drives with little footwork and drags the ball into his off stump. It was the shot of a tired man, but it cannot overshadow what has been a really excellent innings. 218/3
Ian Bradshaw1006716.70314211
8.4 to KC Sangakkara, just in the right zone and Sangakkara was squared up by that one and he offers the thinnest of edges, a size zero of a snick, through to the keeper. Again, West Indies deserve this wicket and there's much work for Sri Lanka's top order to be getting on with in these early stages. 35/2
Dwayne Smith302307.66113100
Chris Gayle906006.66223032
Dwayne Bravo705918.42152320
44.1 to DPMD Jayawardene, brilliant yorker straight up, removes the off stick and Jayawardene just smiles. There's not much celebration on the field, low key only, and that's the end of a fine innings from Jayawardene. 251/4
Ramnaresh Sarwan301715.6671010
46.4 to LPC Silva, oh dear, backed right away trying to make room and carved that one right up to Lara at wide mid-off. Selfless shot, though, really, trying to boost Sri Lanka late on. 268/5

Chaminda Vaas811922.37351001
8.3 to DJ Bravo, Bravo is undone by the inswing which takes the ball past his defensive jab, flicks the top of his pad and onto the stumps. 40/2
10.1 to BC Lara, Lara falls! That's some quick work by Sangakkara, Lara dragging his back foot forward and his foot is in the air. The third umpire needed more than a second eye for that one, but he was clearly out, and Lara's on his way. Tidy work indeed from the keeper, standing up to Vaas. Boos ring out around the ground at that decision, but you can't argue with it. 42/3
Lasith Malinga503426.80193120
5.2 to CH Gayle, done by the slower ball. It was wide of off stump as well, so Gayle had to reach to drive, it went a long way up and Fernando, who was circling under the swirling ball as it descended from the heavens, held a good two-handed catch above his head two-thirds of the way towards the long-on boundary. 20/1
41.2 to S Chanderpaul, good reply from Malinga, right up in the blockhole, Chanderpaul aiming to pull that one, playing right over it, and knocking out the off stump. 173/8

Muthiah Muralidaran905926.55241410
35.6 to MN Samuels, that's straight, very straight, and the umpire needs no time to give that one out. Neither do all three armchair umpires in our office, who instantly trigger their fingers, too; well, it was plumber than a plum pudding that's had extra plums wodged in there. 147/5
43.4 to JE Taylor, pitched in-line and just did enough to go on to hit the stumps. All the team go up for that one, trying to Umpire Harper's decision much easier. He didn't really need their help, squinting through his yellow lenses to give that one. 187/9
Sanath Jayasuriya8.303834.47231100
34.2 to RR Sarwan, Sarwan plays a pretty horrible cross-batted heave, misses and Sangakkara whips off the bails as Sarwan twists and jams his bat down. He doesn't make it in time, it's a second neat stumping by the keeper, and the third umpire presses the button after a cursory glance at the replay. 134/4
38.1 to D Ramdin, Ramdin goes to sweep that one, it sails high and Vaas catches that one at deep midwicket, running in to cling on. 158/7
44.3 to DBL Powell, and that's it. Cleaned up by some tidy work and that's a comprehensive win for Sri Lanka. 190/10
