Lahiru Kumara403428.50104110
12.2 to MP Stoinis, has this carried? Yep, it has, that's an excellent catch at mid-off! Stoinis gets it off the bottom of the bat. Karunaratne got the full-length dive forward and just got his hands under it. 79/4
12.5 to GJ Maxwell, sliced to third! What an over from Kumara. A short delivery, Maxwell gives himself some room to try and go over the off side and the top edge flies down for a comfortable catch near the rope. 82/5
Dushmantha Chameera403027.5092120
3.5 to AJ Finch, Goes again, and this time he's gone! This was the slower ball this time, and Finch mistimes this completely. Lahiru Kumara is the man at mid-on, who has to run back and take this as it falls over his shoulder. The early pressure reaps dividends for Sri Lanka!. 11/1
9.2 to JP Inglis, Top edge, straight up in the air and Chameera takes the return catch! But does Inglis get any bat on this? Given not out and Sri Lanka are reviewing. This looks to have certainly hit the helmet, but is there any glove on the way through? Hotspot shows nothing, but Snicko shows a slight spike as it passes the glove. Yes, he is gone!. 55/3
Praveen Jayawickrama402917.2573000
4.5 to BR McDermott, Oh almost disaster but in the end he holds on! This is on a length outside off and McDermott looks to drag this through midwicket but gets thick leading edge that pops up towards cover. Pathum Nissanka is the man making his way to catch this, but there's a miscommunication with the man coming in from point, and he falls over the man but holds on to the catch.. 12/2
Chamika Karunaratne403218.0060120
18.5 to DR Sams, high into the leg side, taken at deep square leg...short of a length, Sams couldn't get hold of it well enough with the pull as he came off the toe end. 146/6

3.2 to P Nissanka, And now he's gone! Length ball, and Nissanka goes to loft this over mid-on but can't connect as it only goes as far as the man.. 23/1
19.4 to MD Shanaka, dragged on! Well, it's not quite over yet. Full outside off, he goes for the scoop and plays it straight into the stumps. Was he getting a bit too cute with that one?. 154/5
Ashton Agar401914.7580000
6.1 to KIC Asalanka, And it's a wicket first ball! Crashes into the top of middle, but it's all of Asalanka's making as he's premeditated scoop, glances off the face of the bat to rattle the stumps!. 54/3
