Nuwan Pradeep1005525.50324210
37.4 to L Ronchi, the short ball works for Pradeep. Banged in as Pradeep hits the middle of the deck, and hurries Ronchi onto the pull. He skies it over the square leg umpire off the front foot, hit high on the bat. Kapu settles under the ball; another single-digit score for Ronchi. 191/6
49.1 to DAJ Bracewell, Bracewell holes out to Senanayake off a full toss. Slogged into the lap of the sub fielder. Little New Year's present for Sena. 257/8
Dushmantha Chameera1003823.80424110
7.3 to MJ Guptill, slapped away but Dilshan comes into play on the field. Dug in outside off at 144ks, Guptill rises on his toes and cuts it with Dilshan taking a good catch, diving low to his left. 42/1
27.3 to HM Nicholls, oh, the angle has worked, Nicholls has dragged one on! Nicholls didn't move much for that and was looking to push at that outside off, the ball was angling away but he played outside the line and the inside edge made the ball crash onto the leg stump. 143/4

Nuwan Kulasekara503106.20102040
Angelo Mathews201708.5053010
Jeffrey Vandersay1015525.50294131
17.4 to TWM Latham, Latham connects the sweep this time but he top edges it to fine leg, that's a soft dismissal! It was an innocuous delivery down the leg side and Latham tried the sweep again, the ball took the leading edge to go high and Pradeep did well to go forward and to his left to get his hands under it. 102/2
17.6 to LRPL Taylor, got him this time, caught at slip, Taylor has gone for a duck! There was a bit of flight, it was just outside off and Taylor decided to go back this time to push it into the off side but the ball spun away marginally and took the outside edge to head to Mathews at slip who grabbed it with both hands. 102/3
Milinda Siriwardana503316.6092100
32.1 to KS Williamson, oh my, KW has given it away, he has slapped a full toss straight to mid-on! He came down the track as Siriwardana angled it in from round the wicket and KW swatted the waist-high full toss to mid-on where Chameera pouched it around his waist height. 163/5

12.4 to MD Gunathilaka, the stand is broken, Gunathilaka has handed it straight to slip! The ball was short with some room, Gunathilaka stayed back and chopped it late, to guide it to third man, but it went straight to Taylor at wide slip. McClenaghan is pumped!. 98/1
