Angelo Mathews201015.0081010
0.4 to DA Warner, got him! Slightly shorter by Matthews and Warner cuts and slaps it straight into the hands of point!. 1/1
Sanath Jayasuriya201708.5031100
Isuru Udana4047211.7574310
12.2 to MJ Clarke, another one done by a slower delivery. Are you watching, England? Superb delivery on middle-and-leg which Clarke picked, but got a leading edge back to the bowler who took a great low catch with his left hand. 79/5
18.2 to DJ Hussey, tries to repeat the shot but slices it high and point swallows it with ease. 135/7
Lasith Malinga403639.00106020
10.6 to BJ Haddin, bowled him! Comical cricket. A slower full-toss which Haddin seemed to pick, but it dipped late on him and splattered his stumps - the off stump and middle stump both flattened. 74/4
19.2 to B Lee, what a yorker. Oh well bowled! Very, very fast and hit the base of the leg stump which is sent cartwheeling. 151/8
19.5 to NM Hauritz, outside edge, another one for Malinga - well caught by Sangakkara low to his right. 155/9
Ajantha Mendis402035.00141100
5.6 to RT Ponting, bowled him! Ponting stepped outside leg trying to smite him over cover but loses his leg stump. Looked to me like a leggie from Mendis. 48/2
7.3 to SR Watson, gone! Watson attempts a horrible sweep to this very full and straight delivery, and he's hit on the back pad. Poor stroke - quality bowling. 59/3
14.5 to MEK Hussey, what bowling. What belief and guile from Mendis. A quicker and fuller ball to Hussey who's rapped absolutely dead in front. Too quick, too straight. 94/6

Brett Lee403929.75154232
2.1 to ST Jayasuriya, what a catch from Warner at deep square leg! Jayasuriya pulled this hard and flat, and Warner jumped up high to take it behind him, not two feet from the boundary edge. Oh yes!. 19/1
16.1 to LPC Silva, got him! A slower-ball bouncer which he pulls meekly, and Ponting jogs in to take an easy catch. 127/4

9.1 to TM Dilshan, bowled him with a beauty! Beat him in the flight as Dilshan came skipping down the pitch. 81/2
