Ravi Rampaul402736.75123010
17.4 to MD Shanaka, full toss dipping down on him as he looks to loft but can't clear mid-off. 120/6
19.1 to RTM Mendis, lofted and taken! Fuller outside off. Drives it to cover. 134/7
19.6 to C Karunaratne, moves across the stumps. Takes the front leg away then, but it comes in front of the stumps. He was plumb in front. The review by the batter seemed to be late. 138/9
Dushmantha Chameera2026013.0056010
Seekkuge Prasanna401724.25142000
5.1 to N Dickwella, soft dismissal there for Dickwella! Length delivery on the stumps. Dickwella, as is his wont, looks to sweep and it seems as if it was bowled slower as Dickwella is almost through his stroke and the ball pops up after hitting the edge of the glove of the bottom hand. The keeper is going with the angle of the delivery and leaps up to take a good catch. 48/1
5.5 to PD Salt, rush of blood! Comes down the track for a flighted delivery to slog it out of the ground. He is done by the flight and turn as he gets nowhere near the ball. Way down the track to even attempt getting back into the crease. Stumped!. 53/2
Dhananjaya de Silva201306.5052000
Ashan Priyanjan10808.0011000
Jeffrey Vandersay402536.25103000
11.4 to KTH Ratnayake, finally he connects with a slog or so it seems as Priyanjan intercepts the ball by coming in running from cow corner and pulls off a screamer. Torturous stay of Tharindu Ratnayake comes to an end. 88/3
11.5 to Sohaib Maqsood, fuller on the stumps. Sohaib Maqsood looks to slog it and misses. To the naked eye, it looked plumb. Sohaib Maqsood reviews the decision and from the replays there's no bat on it but it's a googly and hitting the top of the leg stump. It's an umpires call and closer than what it seemed initially. 88/4
15.2 to Najibullah Zadran, a referral from the bowling team for lbw as he looks to slog it away. Nothing can save him apart from the bounce. Was that what the umpire had in mind? The replays show that it was hitting the stumps and he has to walk back. 109/5

Tharindu Ratnayake401834.50152020
3.2 to MDKJ Perera, looks to reverse sweep and missed. Bowled. Spin is playing a defining part in this innings. 17/2
7.5 to SE Rutherford, and there's the fourth wicket! He looks to steer it and gets an outside edge onto Dickwella's thigh. Dickwella holds on. 38/4
12.1 to DM de Silva, Karunaratne pulls off a stunner as he slog sweeps it cow corner! The umpires go to the third umpire with a soft signal of out. Replays show us that he was within the boundary rope as he caught it, then tosses it, crosses to the other side and then comes back to complete the catch. Perfect!. 70/5
Ramesh Mendis402315.75123000
15.5 to JDF Vandersay, and there's the wicket! Fuller on the stumps. Vandersay slog sweeps and connects. The balls flies to cow corner where Tahir takes the catch just like Karunaratne did. Superb catch and it's a surprise that he didn't quite set off on a run. If anything deserves a celebration, this was it. To have the reflexes to pull the catch off at his age takes some doing. 86/6
Imran Tahir401924.75100100
2.2 to T Banton, looked like it pitches on the leg stump and it hit him on the thigh as he was looking to sweep. The replays show that the ball was brushing the stumps. It's an umpire's call. Tahir getting into the game early with a wicket. 14/1
5.6 to SMA Priyanjan, and there's the wicket! There's a review from the batter. Googly. Looks to defend it and misses. Struck on the pads if there's no inside edge, the batter is a goner. The replays show that he has to walk back. 32/3
Sachitha Jayathilake301906.3352000
Nuwan Pradeep4046111.5052310
18.4 to S Prasanna, short of a good length delivery on the stumps. He looks to pull and gets a top edge to long-on where Salt takes the catch. 123/7
Chamika Karunaratne1011111.0022000
19.3 to PVD Chameera, yes he will! But it's a wicket! Short ball outside the off stump. He looks to pull it and gets a top edge. Chandimal runs across and crosses by the time Karunaratne runs across and takes the catch himself. 131/8
