TOTAL50 Ov (RR: 6.14)307
Fall of wickets: 1-60 (Avishka Fernando, 10.2 ov), 2-88 (Dimuth Karunaratne, 19.1 ov), 3-177 (Kusal Perera, 31.3 ov), 4-185 (Kusal Mendis, 32.2 ov), 5-214 (Angelo Mathews, 38.1 ov), 6-278 (Dhananjaya de Silva, 46.3 ov), 7-293 (Thisara Perera, 48.3 ov), 8-306 (Wanindu Hasaranga, 49.4 ov), 9-306 (Lakshan Sandakan, 49.5 ov), 10-307 (Isuru Udana, 49.6 ov)
38.1 to AD Mathews, bowled 'im! Good length, outside off stump, but angling into the stumps. Except, it didn't angle in as much as Mathews though. He goes for a heave from a middle-stump line, while the ball goes past his bat and crashes into the stumps. Don't forget Cottrell's salute too.... 214/5
49.4 to PWH de Silva, middle stump clattered as Hasaranga runs across exposing his stumps. Misses the flick while Holder nails the yorker. 306/8
49.6 to I Udana, Pollard takes another catch and Holder gets another wicket. Low full toss outside off, and he looks to go over long off. Doesn't have the distance however. Sri Lanka 307 all out. 307/10
10.2 to WIA Fernando, some luck for the West Indies finally! Avishka is out for less than 50 for the first time in the series. It's not a great ball from Joseph, who has pushed this full delivery across the batsman, and too far down leg. Avishka tries to glance this fine, but gets only a thin tickle on it, and is caught behind down the legside. The umpire thought for a moment before giving it out, and when he did, there was no complaint from Avishka.. 60/1
32.2 to BKG Mendis, and then, err, a mistake. Not sure there was anything in that ball to worry Mendis, the way he was batting. But he's out either way. This is a bouncer, at around shoulder height, and Mendis tries to pull again - a shot he had played to excellent effect - but then he can't get over the top of this one, and he mis-hits it in the air. The ball floats up and Pollard runs around from midwicket to take an excellent diving catch near where square leg might stand. 185/4
46.3 to DM de Silva, slower ball does the trick. Full, outside leg, and he looks to whip it through the on side. Poor connection, and Pollard has to take a step to his right to get behind the ball's line at deep midwicket. Easily taken but a nice applause from the crowd for DDS. 278/6
48.3 to NLTC Perera, skyer taken by the substitute fielder Rovman Powell. Full on off, and he slices this attempted slog. Powell gets under from mid off to take the catch in the reverse-cup style. 293/7
19.1 to FDM Karunaratne, has he hurt himself there? Ball pops up as Karunaratne looks to defend. Lobbed in the air and Chase has to dive forward to take the catch. Looks like the delivery got held up off the deck. Chase looks better now.... 88/2
31.3 to MDKJ Perera, Pollard makes a deserved breakthrough! Not a great shot from Perera though. Another one of those offcutters with a little bit of overspin, angled across and leaving the left-hander. Perera gets low and tries to heave this into the next century over midwicket, but he's playing against the angle and the turn, so to speak, and because there's overspin on this ball, there's a little extra bounce. It takes his top edge and flies into the keeper's gloves. Pollard's been fishing for that dismissal since last over.. 177/3

TOTAL50 Ov (RR: 6.02)301/9
Fall of wickets: 1-111 (Sunil Ambris, 18.3 ov), 2-171 (Shai Hope, 30.3 ov), 3-218 (Nicholas Pooran, 39.3 ov), 4-240 (Darren Bravo, 43.4 ov), 5-253 (Kieron Pollard, 45.2 ov), 6-275 (Jason Holder, 47.1 ov), 7-287 (Hayden Walsh, 48.2 ov), 8-294 (Roston Chase, 48.4 ov), 9-299 (Fabian Allen, 49.2 ov)
30.3 to SD Hope, slower ball does it. Udana's specialty. I haven't even seen it closely, but I'm willing to bet that's out of the back of the hand. And yes, it's a legbreak. Hope is through his flick-through-midwicket, and sends a fairly simple catch, in the air, to short midwicket. Another fine Hope innings comes to an end. He's got two half centuries and a hundred in this series.. 171/2
39.3 to N Pooran, like Ambris, Pooran falls just after reaching his fifty. A cutter, outside off, and he drives uppishly. Short extra cover was waiting for that kind of shot, and when the opportunity arose, he made no mistake. 218/3
45.2 to KA Pollard, Mathews gets another breakthrough! Length ball, angling into the stumps, and Pollard skies this attempted swipe. Ball in the air, and Udana runs in to take a diving catch near short midwicket. Massive wicket! Pollard falls just short of 50..... 253/5
47.1 to JO Holder, Mathews turning it on! Good length, on off, and he looks to deposit this over cow corner. Not off the bat's middle, and the fielder at deep midwicket takes a comfortable catch, fairly inside the boundary line. Replays show Mathews bowled the cutter there.... 275/6
49.2 to FA Allen, is that six? No! Caught at deep midwicket In the slot on middle, and Allen goes for the biggie over the leg side. But it's not got the connection he was looking for, and taken by the fielder riding the boundary line. 299/9
18.3 to SW Ambris, the googly does the trick! Quicker ball, lands on off, and turns sharply into middle stump. Ambris backs away to whip it to the leg side, but the ball goes through him! Ambris disappointed walking off, but this was a good performance from him today. 111/1
