Fall of wickets: 1-15 (Tillakaratne Dilshan, 2.5 ov), 2-33 (Dinesh Chandimal, 5.3 ov), 3-39 (Kusal Perera, 6.4 ov), 4-102 (Jeevan Mendis, 15.2 ov)
6.4 to MDKJ Perera, well caught, running back. Perera is down the track, but beaten in the flight by Maxwell and he hits that high. Bailey runs back from cover to take a difficult catch over his shoulder. Perera perishes again, having promised much early on. Sri Lanka need a partnership here though.. 39/3
2.5 to TM Dilshan, slower ball again, and this time he bowls him! Dilshan tried to pull that one, but it didn't bounce as high as he expected. It takes an under edge and clips off stump. I think the slowness of the ball did him in there.. 15/1
5.3 to LD Chandimal, that is an awful looking shot. Short outside off stump, Chandimal tries to heave that over mid on with a cross-bat shot, but is too late on the stroke, and ends up scooping it to Bailey at mid off. Didn't look too comfortable, despite the boundary. 33/2
15.2 to BMAJ Mendis, holes out to long off. Doherty bowls that a bit flatter, and Mendis runs down the pitch, but can't get under it. He hits it hard and flat, and straight to Faulkner at long off. 102/4

Fall of wickets: 1-10 (David Warner, 1.3 ov), 2-20 (Aaron Finch, 4.1 ov), 3-106 (George Bailey, 14.2 ov)
1.3 to DA Warner, beautifully bowled by Kulasekara. That was right on a good length and moving away off the seam, Warner tried to hit that through the leg side, but the movement means he got a leading edge which lobs to Thisara Perera at mid off. Sri Lanka silence Warner early.. 10/1
4.1 to AJ Finch, big shout and that is pretty much plumb. I think that was the googly, pitching on off and turning towards middle. Finch goes for a big sweep, he misses and the ball strikes him on the thigh, in line with middle and off. Simple decision for the umpire.. 20/2
14.2 to GJ Bailey, oh dear, Bailey. It was a low full toss on the stumps, but Bailey couldn't get enough on it and it sails to Kushal Perera at deep midwicket. That has swung the match significantly towards Sri Lanka.. 106/3
