Benny Howell403729.2593200
3.5 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, But Howell has the last laugh! This is fuller in length from Howell, wide of off. Gurbaz goes to drive this straight down the ground, but ends up slicing it straight in the air. It goes high and it's swirling in the Kandy sky, but Dickwella calls for it and dives forward to hold on.. 35/1
10.5 to WIA Fernando, Straight down long-on's throat! Full ball on off and Avishka Fernando tried to chip it down the ground, but doesn't get enough bat on it and Naveen-ul-Haq takes a simple catch. 85/3
8.3 to DA Randika, And Naveen gets the breakthrough! This was a quicker short ball, and it rushes Randika on the pull. He only manages to top edge this straight to the man running in from deep midwicket.. 74/2
Dominic Drakes4053113.2545220
17.2 to S Samarawickrama, Cleaned him up! Goes full and straight, angled into the batter from around the wicket. Samarawickrama goes for a big hoick and misses and the ball clatters into leg-stump. 142/4

Thisara Perera3031110.3393220
0.4 to N Dickwella, Off stump pegged back! Dickwella was all over the place and now he pays the ultimate price for that uncertainty. This was a good length ball on middle and off, that just straightens off the seam. Dickwella puts forth a tentative forward defence, and this goes through bat and pad.. 0/1
Maheesh Theekshana403218.0095010
1.3 to KNM Fernando, Well doesn't matter, as he holes out deep square leg! This was on a good length and probably there for the slog sweep, but the batter finds the sole man on the leg side boundary. 5/2
James Fuller403228.00102200
4.5 to ND Paranavithana, Castled! Fuller by name, fuller in length, 140kph pitching just outside leg and angling towards middle and off. Paranavithana goes for the old fashioned heave over mid-on but gets nowhere near it.. 29/3
19.1 to BAC Howell, Taken at deep midwicket! Slower bouncer outside off and it stops on him and he pulls it straight to the Malik in the deep. What a start to the over for Fuller. 157/8
Asitha Fernando413117.75123100
7.2 to LD Chandimal, What an absolute corker! This a dream delivery from Asitha. This was 140kph, pitching just back of a length in the channel outside off. Has Chandimal playing back to it, but then it pitches and just seams in viciously. Chandimal has no idea what's hit him, as this crashes into off stump!. 37/5
Vijayakanth Viyaskanth403228.0075000
6.4 to KIC Asalanka, Traps him in front! This one skidded on after pitching on middle, Asalanka goes for the sweep and misses. The ball raps him on the front pad, and he doesn't bother reviewing as this looks to be crashing into middle and off!. 35/4
10.1 to S Prasanna, Chipped straight to deep midwicket! Tossed up full on off and he looks to clear the ground, but it comes off the toe end of the bat and it's an easy catch for Fernando. 48/6
