5.5 to WMK Bandara, Kalana with his second wicket! Length ball on the middle, Bandara finds a top edge while trying to loft it as Daniel takes a clean catch at point. 56/2

0.3 to JM Cox, Cox is gone third ball! That's a huge blow. This ball was there to be punished, but he picks out deep square leg perfectly, flicking the length ball off his pads straight to the fielder. Aura would have had big hopes about this partnership.. 0/1
4.3 to S Daniel, caught nicely on the dive. Minod Bhanuka gets a little redemption. This is a length ball, way outside off, which Daniel tries to bash over mid on. But he gets an outside edge, and the keeper has to dive hard to his left to take the catch low to the ground. Excellent take.. 24/2
4.4 to PBB Rajapaksa, that's out too. Another good catch from Minod Bhanuka, again diving to his left. this was full well outside off, and the batter tried to flay this through the covers, and gets only a thick outside edge. The keeper takes this much higher than ground level, but still has to dive to get to it. 24/3
6.5 to MD Shanaka, gone! That's the end of SHanaka, and that's the benefit of a slip. this was slightly short of a length, outside off stump. Shanaka fends at it without a lot of conviction, and Kamindu Mendis at slip dives to his left to pouch that. 40/4
7.2 to RS Fernando, tossed up, beeeeeautiful googly. Tempting the batter on to the front foot and getting him to commit to the shot. It dips on him, and he doesn't pick the googly either. Spin between bat and pad and takes out leg. Aura crashing hard.. 41/5
10.3 to MW Forde, googly on the stumps, fast one, and he goes right through Ford, who tries to hit through mid on but leaves a gap between bat and pad, and lets it tickle his leg stump. 56/6
12.5 to Sikandar Raza, he's gone through him! Raza is down the track slightly, and misses this fullish, tossed up delivery outside off. Minod Bhanuka takes the bails off sharply, and Raza is clearly out. 81/7
15.5 to Noor Ahmad, another wicket. though perhaps it shouldn't be one. This was a short at the body. Took the batters helmet as he ducked and the keeper took a comfortable catch. Did that touch glove though? I'm not sure.. 100/8
15.6 to KKV Perera, short ball, bouncer at the body, throat height, takes the batter's glove as he tries to fend it with the head tucked in, and it travels to the keeper at a very catchable height.. 100/9
