Fall of wickets: 1-95 (Pathum Nissanka, 10.2 ov), 2-96 (Danushka Gunathilaka, 10.5 ov), 3-104 (Dinesh Chandimal, 12.5 ov), 4-119 (Angelo Mathews, 15.3 ov), 5-129 (Thisara Perera, 16.4 ov), 6-154 (Ashen Bandara, 19.2 ov)
19.2 to KNA Bandara, fuller, well outside off. Bandara though had made his mind early to scoop it over. Moves across but ends up ballooning it towards backward square leg for an easy catch. 154/6
15.3 to AD Mathews, fuller and way outside off this time, might have been another slower ball. Mathews takes it from there, goes aerial but ends up mistiming it straight to Holder at long-on. A dolly for the fielder but is this a blessing in disguise for Sri Lanka. 119/4
10.5 to MD Gunathilaka, another slower one, fuller, wider and loopier. Gunathilaka delays his shot, reaches out for it but fails to keep it down. And it goes straight into the lap of Sinclair at wide mid-off. 96/2
12.5 to LD Chandimal, Bravo gets another wicket. A slower length ball, Chandimal was looking to slog it across the line, gets a top edge that balloons on the off side. Simmons moves a couple of steps to his right from short fine leg and completes the catch. 104/3

Fall of wickets: 1-9 (Evin Lewis, 2.5 ov), 2-45 (Chris Gayle, 6.1 ov), 3-48 (Lendl Simmons, 6.5 ov), 4-60 (Jason Holder, 8.3 ov), 5-65 (Dwayne Bravo, 10.1 ov), 6-66 (Nicholas Pooran, 10.5 ov), 7-89 (Fabian Allen, 15.2 ov), 8-93 (Kieron Pollard, 16.5 ov), 9-116 (Obed McCoy, 18.1 ov), 10-117 (Kevin Sinclair, 18.4 ov)
2.5 to E Lewis, bowled 'im. Angling in from around the wicket, and it keeps coming in with the arm. Lewis goes for the slog sweep but misses. It keeps a touch low as well and hits the middle stump half-way up. 9/1
10.1 to DJ Bravo, got him first ball. This one seemed to stop on the pitch slightly, and Bravo has sent a simple catch to midwicket off the leading edge of his bat. It's only 131kph from Chameera. Bat Bravo is through the shot early, and the ball balloons up into the legside, where Mathews jogs in from midwicket to get under this dolly.. 65/5
10.5 to N Pooran, another one! Wickets are tumbling here, and Sri Lanka are ecstatic. That's just a bad shot from Pooran, though, as he plays a huge swipe across the line to a length ball that is angled in from around the wicket. It's not short enough for that sort of shot, and the ball whizzes underneath the bat to ping off stump.. 66/6
6.1 to CH Gayle, out first ball. He dragged that down and it's not a great ball in truth. But Gayle has picked out deep midwicket with his bludgeon across the line. Genuinely a bit of a loosener from Hasaranga first ball, with the legbreak bouncing mid-pitch and asking to be hit. Somehow, though, Gayle doesn't get under it enough, and Ashen Bandara at deep midwicket tears in from the boundary to get his hands underneath that. Good catch. 45/2
6.5 to LMP Simmons, Has Hasaranga got another? Looks that way. It's that googly again. Pretty much a textbook Hasaranga dismissal - a tossed up delivery that Simmons doesn't pick as the googly. He plays down the wrong line, and it spins to take the front pad in front of offstump. The umpire doesn't really hesitate to raise the finger. Simmons reviews, but that can't save him. It's three reds - the ball going on to hit middle and leg.. 48/3
15.2 to FA Allen, that's pretty plumb. This time it's the lebgreak that gets the lbw though. This is floated up, pitching on middle and off and straightening. Allen goes for a huge slog sweep and misses. It hits him on the thigh and would have hit off stump. Not a tough decision for the ump.. 89/7
16.5 to KA Pollard, that's got to be the game now, right? Sandakan fires this wide of off stump from around the wicket, and at this stage, Pollard has no choice but to reach for it. He tries to slam it over cover, but it takes the outside half of his bat and flies towards the sweeper cover, who runs in quickly to get under that. 93/8
18.1 to OC McCoy, gets him first ball. This is fired in flat again, and slides on with the arm. Obed comes down the track but doesn't get anywhere near the pitch of the ball. He swings hard across the line, but the ball stays low and on course for the off stump, which it rattles.. 116/9
18.4 to K Sinclair, a fantastic outfield catch to finish off. This is the googly from Sandakan, who pitches it a bit short as he bowls flat. Sinclair gets low and tries to sweep this for six against the turn, but can't get a lot of elevation. Pathum Nissanka at deep square leg runs across to take an excellent catch above his head, giving Sandakan his third. 117/10
8.3 to JO Holder, gets him now! Again this was speared in, and Holder can't quite get under it. He tries to slam another six, but the elevation isn't there, and it's a fairly straightforward catch for long off, who only has to move a little to his right to swallow that one. Gunathilaka is having a fantastic game.. 60/4
