TOTAL50 Ov (RR: 5.14)257/9
Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Nipuni Hansika, 0.3 ov), 2-49 (Chamari Polgampola, 12.2 ov), 3-76 (Dilani Manodara, 21.5 ov), 4-77 (Prasadani Weerakkody, 22.4 ov), 5-129 (Shashikala Siriwardene, 32.5 ov), 6-130 (Hasini Perera, 33.3 ov), 7-190 (Eshani Lokusuriyage, 41.3 ov), 8-234 (Sripali Weerakkody, 46.5 ov), 9-257 (Udeshika Prabodhani, 49.2 ov)
0.3 to MDN Hansika, that swings from off into middle just enough and the batsman plays the wrong line while looking to flick. Hits her smack on middle. Perry appeals and a quick raise of the finger from umpire Anil Chaudhary. Three-ball duck for Hansika. 0/1
46.5 to SS Weerakkody, what is the need to slog like that when you have a batsman who is on a record-breaking spree at the other end? I really don't know. Looks to slog this full-length delivery across the line, played outside the line to get a thick inside edge back onto the stumps. Very poor, you have to say when all she had to do was just get Atapattu back on strike.. 234/8
49.2 to KDU Prabodhani, slaps this straight to the debutant at cover. This was short, had enough width too. Intent was right but the execution came a cropper. Hit it off the top part of the bat to skew a simple catch. 257/9
12.2 to PRCS Kumarihami, . 49/2
21.5 to MADD Surangika, makes the cardinal sin of trying to play a full-blooded sweep to a full delivery that drifted into middle. Missed it completely and that would've crashed into middle of middle. Straightforward decision. Manodara's misery is over. 76/3
32.5 to HASD Siriwardene, pushed through quicker on middle stump, she fails to connect her sweep, hits on leg stump and umpire Chaudhary raises his finger quickly on the appeal. Might've been drifting down leg, though. Sri Lanka lose another. Half their team is back. 129/5
22.4 to PM Weerakkody, full and slides into her pads, looks to flick it but fails to keep the ball grounded, Alex Blackwell at mid-wicket dives to her left and takes a sharp two-handed catch. Another single-digit dismissal. 77/4
33.3 to GWHM Perera, hara-kiri, brain freeze. Call it whatever. She walks across the stumps to sweep one that drifts back in, played too early as the ball beat her swing to crash into the stumps. Bolton could've given Imran Tahir a run for his money with that celebration. The part-timer has done the trick, and to think of it, she nearly didn't bowl this over.. 130/6
41.3 to LE Kaushalya, saw her coming down the pitch as Bolton drags her length back, she looks to swing towards leg side but it goes under her bat and rattles middle stump. Sri Lanka seven down. 190/7

TOTAL43.5 Ov (RR: 5.97)262/2
Fall of wickets: 1-5 (Beth Mooney, 1.6 ov), 2-138 (Nicole Bolton, 25.3 ov)
1.6 to BL Mooney, full pitched and on middle, Mooney drives the ball but it holds up after pitching, not the best-time shot from Mooney and the ball is in the air, Atapattu at cover does well to take the catch. Soft dismissal.. 5/1
25.3 to NE Bolton, is that the breakthrough to lift Sri Lanka? Much against the turn of play. Nicely tossed up but this one dipped on Bolton as she stepped out, completely deceived in flight, but she decided to go through with the drive and ended up carving this straight to backward point.. 138/2
