TOTAL18.1 Ov (RR: 5.66)103
Fall of wickets: 1-10 (Dinesh Chandimal, 1.6 ov), 2-38 (Bhanuka Rajapaksa, 4.6 ov), 3-59 (Dhananjaya de Silva, 7.4 ov), 4-71 (Dasun Shanaka, 9.2 ov), 5-78 (Kusal Perera, 10.5 ov), 6-86 (Wanindu Hasaranga, 12.5 ov), 7-100 (Chamika Karunaratne, 15.3 ov), 8-103 (Dushmantha Chameera, 16.5 ov), 9-103 (Charith Asalanka, 17.1 ov), 10-103 (Maheesh Theekshana, 18.1 ov)
12.5 to PW Hasaranga, castled. Quicker one, went with the arm after pitching on off-stump, he was looking to make room and slash it through the offside, but it's rushed him a bit and he's too late on it. Off-stump rattled.. 86/6
16.5 to PVD Chameera, plumb in front and given but the batsman has referred it. Hewas going well back and struck on the pads below the knee roll, in line with the stumps. Pitched on middle and leg and going on, for my money that's crashing into leg-stump. Ball tracking confirms that's headed into leg-stump. 103/8
1.6 to LD Chandimal, 140kmh, Chandimal trying to show more intent to score quicker today but he's found Maharaj at mid-on. Short ball banged in, he makes a hint of room and pulls it straight to the fielder. Chandimal's reaction suggests it was slower than he expected. 10/1
4.6 to PBB Rajapaksa, Markram has the last laugh, he's taken a sharp return catch! It was a full toss but Rajapaksa came down and swung it back towards Markram's left shoulder and the bowler went down just a bit to grab it with both hands with his fingers pointing up. That was hit hard. 38/2
10.5 to MDKJ Perera, that looked plumb and he's been given. Kusal has reviewed it though - did he get a faint edge? Nicely tossed up from around the wicket, dips on him and straightens, he's looking to slog-sweep it out of the ground, but misses. Struck on the back leg in line with the stumps. Kusal's not even waiting for the decision, he's seen the replay on the big screen and is walking off. And he's right to do it, because that was hitting the middle of middle stump. Crucial wicket, that.. 78/5
17.1 to KIC Asalanka, popped straight back to the bowler. That seemed to grip in the surface a bit, pitched on a length on off, angled into him, he's looking to drive through cover but mis-times it horribly as it goes to Markram's right, and he holds on at shoulder height. Sri Lanka's last recognised batsman gone.. 103/9
18.1 to M Theekshana, it's all over with another batsman struck in front of the stumps. Pitched on middle and straightened, he was coming forward to defend but hasn't read the line, struck on the pad, and that's hitting the stumps.. 103/10
7.4 to DM de Silva, he's got a wicket, beating de Silva's inside edge! The batter didn't look in control at all while dancing down, his body moving down but towards leg, Shamsi cleverly pitches it wide outside off and turns it in, and de Silva's swing can't connect at all. 59/3
9.2 to MD Shanaka, what a comeback, Shamsi beats him comprehensively! Nice drift towards off, Shanaka takes a step down and wants to flick it to leg with the turn, but he misses the line, the ball turns in and rams into the stumps. Looks like Shanaka didn't account for the turn at all. Shamsi is pumped, his celebrations aren't ending tonight. 71/4
15.3 to C Karunaratne, jaffa to bowl him. Ripper of a ball for a spinner. Turned a mile past his inside edge to rattle stumps. Drifts across him, lands well outside off, he's drawn into driving at it well away from body, but the ball grips and turns through the gate to get him. Pitched on a sixth stump line and turned enough to get him bowled. Wowza.. 100/7

TOTAL14.1 Ov (RR: 7.41)105/1
Fall of wickets: 1-62 (Reeza Hendricks, 8.2 ov)
8.2 to RR Hendricks, top-edge is caught by the keeper. Sri Lanka have a breakthrough. This was a better length, nice loop too, pitched and turned away from Reeza, who was looking to sweep hard by clearing his front leg. Gets a top edge that swirls to square leg. The keeper is right under it, calling for it, and grabs it.. 62/1
