Jerome Taylor1013913.90375000
9.1 to KC Sangakkara, tame dismissal and Sangakkara's ordinary tour continues, Taylor pitches it up outside off and invites the drive, Sangakkara shapes to scoop it over backward point but doesn't get the desired elevation, Bravo takes it comfortably at waist height. Replays showed Taylor bowling from a yard behind the popping crease. 38/2
Fidel Edwards1005725.70375180
1.3 to ML Udawatte, look at that stump roll.... Edwards lets out a screeching yorker on off stump and gets it to move away late, Udawatte is beaten for pace and movement and is too late in getting his bat down and he looks back to see his offstump go for a toss. 2/1
49.5 to CK Kapugedera, he falls for 95! Edwards dishes out an inswinging yorker, Kapugedera gets across his stumps and tries to paddle that one wide of short fine leg but the ball strikes him on the boot, Umpire Duncan is convinced. 234/7
Dwayne Bravo1013243.20403010
10.4 to WU Tharanga, pitches outside off and moves away, Tharanga stays rooted to the crease and goes for the drive through the covers, he only manages a thick inside edge which shaves his offstump. 40/3
12.3 to DPMD Jayawardene, the top order capitulates....Bravo pitches it up outside off, Jayawardene gets down and goes for the square drive, he ends up playing it straight to Chanderpaul. Sangakkara too fell to in identical manner, both failed to get the elevation to clear the infield. 41/4
14.5 to TM Dilshan, pitches it on a good length on off and gets it to move away a little, Dilshan pokes forward but fails to cover the line as the ball clips the outside edge and carries through to Browne. Bravo set him up the previous delivery with a jaffa and he was rewarded. 49/5
46.2 to LPC Silva, Bravo gets the breakthrough, Silva makes room and tries to carve this one over midwicket but can't beat Gayle. 208/6

Chaminda Vaas1043003.00432100
Nuwan Kulasekara1004334.30438010
13.3 to DS Smith, pitches fractionally outside the line of legstump, Smith shapes to flick it to the on side but the ball skids through and traps him on the pad, umpire Duncan is convinced. 53/1
27.4 to RR Sarwan, the bowling change works! Kulasekara pitches it fractionally outside the line off offstump and gets it to move away, Sarwan tamely tries to steer that towards third man but gets a thick edge to Sangakkara. His foot movement was minimal. 109/3
27.6 to MN Samuels, Sri Lanka claw back quickly.... Kulasekara pitches that outside the line of offstump and gets it to seam back inwards after pitching, Samuels gets across his stumps but is very lazy on the stroke, the ball skids through and hits him in line of middle and leg, umpire Duncan raises the finger. 110/4
Ishara Amerasinghe705608.00207220
Ajantha Mendis1013933.90370220
26.6 to CH Gayle, that's his debut wicket....Pitches in line with legstump from over the wicket, it comes on straight and Gayle pokes forward to defend, he's hit in line with the stumps and Taufel is convinced. 109/2
45.4 to DJG Sammy, the flipper! Sammy is totally squared up at the crease as the ball lands on offstump and skids through and whips the top of offstump. Mendis is quite a revelation already. 203/7
47.6 to JE Taylor, Rush of blood.... Mendis dishes out another legbreak, Taylor stays at the crease and tries to repeat the slog which fetched him the six but he lands it down Silva's throat at long-on. 219/8
Chamara Kapugedera704105.85184020
Tillakaratne Dilshan602614.33160100
44.4 to PA Browne, Flighted on middle and leg, Browne tries to go downtown again and this time he fails to clear the fielder, Mendis at long-on runs to his left and catches it. 201/6
