Fall of wickets: 1-73 (Sanath Jayasuriya, 10.3 ov), 2-73 (Kumar Sangakkara, 10.5 ov), 3-77 (Mahela Jayawardene, 11.3 ov), 4-127 (Chamara Silva, 17.2 ov), 5-134 (Jehan Mubarak, 18.3 ov)
18.3 to J Mubarak, that's some catch! Mubarak pulled the short ball high in the air towards deep midwicket, Sammy misjudged it initially but recovered in time, he sprinted in, covering lots of ground with his long strides before diving forward at full length to catch the ball inches off the ground. 134/5
10.3 to ST Jayasuriya, it's finally over! Jayasuriya's struggle has ended at the Oval, he moved across his stumps and chipped a ball which angled into him towards short fine leg, Taylor took an easy catch. 73/1
10.5 to KC Sangakkara, blinder at point! An absolute blinder! The ball was full and wide, Sangakkara came out of his crease and slashed hard, he hit it well and sent the ball racing towards Pollard who reacted superbly, he jumped to take a sharp catch above his head. 73/2
17.2 to LPC Silva, caught! Silva tries to play the reverse-hit, Benn bowls a quicker ball outside the off stump, Ramdin collects the ball and appeals immediately, confident that Silva's edged it, Benn is late to join in, Aleem Dar takes his time but eventually nods his head. 127/4
11.3 to DPMD Jayawardene, another wicket down! They're hitting it straight to fielders! Pollard bowled a full ball on leg side, it was a loose delivery and there to be hit, Jayawardene flicked it but in the air and straight to short fine leg, Chanders barely had to move. 77/3

TOTAL17.4 Ov (RR: 5.71, 89 Mins)101
Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Xavier Marshall, 0.2 ov), 2-1 (Lendl Simmons, 0.4 ov), 3-1 (Dwayne Bravo, 0.6 ov), 4-43 (Shivnarine Chanderpaul, 8.2 ov), 5-64 (Ramnaresh Sarwan, 11.1 ov), 6-75 (Kieron Pollard, 13.3 ov), 7-86 (Denesh Ramdin, 14.5 ov), 8-95 (Jerome Taylor, 15.3 ov), 9-97 (Daren Sammy, 16.2 ov), 10-101 (Sulieman Benn, 17.4 ov)
0.2 to XM Marshall, he can play on that's what! Marshall pushes forward tentatively and gets a bottom edge on to his leg stump, the ball dislodges just one bail, what a disappointment for Marshall. 1/1
0.4 to LMP Simmons, bowled him! Round his legs that too! Mathews bowled a length ball angling towards leg stump, Simmons moved across his crease, trying to glance towards fine leg, he moved too far across and the ball clipped leg stump, that ball actually clipped the underneath of Simmons' thigh pad and deviated on to the stump. 1/2
0.6 to DJ Bravo, that's another one bowled! Mathews pitched the ball on a length outside off stump, Bravo was in two minds, undecided between playing or leaving it, he began to push at it before trying to pull his bat out of the way, the ball went off the inside edge to uproot middle stump. 1/3
14.5 to D Ramdin, another slower ball and Ramdin's holed out! He tried to loft it inside out over cover but only managed to give Jayawardene a catch, excellent change of pace. 86/7
17.4 to SJ Benn, Malinga's sealed Sri Lanka's place in the final with a searing yorker that crashes into the stumps, that ball completes a fearsome defence. 101/10
8.2 to S Chanderpaul, that's plumb! Chanderpaul moved too far across his stumps and tried to sweep, he missed and Mendis hit him flush on the pad, that ball pitched in line and would have gone on to hit middle, it skidded on to Chanderpaul. 43/4
16.2 to DJG Sammy, another one goes, feeble feeble batting, Sammy tries to clear the infield but slices the ball in the air towards point where Mubarak takes the catch, they simply need to give Gayle the strike. 97/9
11.1 to RR Sarwan, caught! Sarwan charges Murali and tries to hit the ball out of the ground, he doesn't get to the pitch of the ball and is also cramped for room by Murali's line from round the wicket, he lofts straight to Mathews at long-on who takes an easy catch, he's having a terrific day. 64/5
13.3 to KA Pollard, stumped down the leg side! Murali pitches on leg stump and draws Pollard forward, the ball spins past Pollard's pads, leaving him stranded, Sangakkara anticipates the opportunity and moves to his left and whips off the bails in a flash. 75/6
15.3 to JE Taylor, caught! Taylor tries to clear the midwicket boundary but doesn't even clear the inner circle, Kulasekara takes the catch. 95/8
