Chris Mpofu913223.55322010
44.2 to NLTC Perera, Another celebration .. this time like Brazilian footballer Bebeto ... It was the full delivery, almost a yorker, which has taken out the middle stump. The batsman was looking for the big hit. Mpofu does a movement like Bebeto - as if he is cradling a child. 218/7
44.5 to HDRL Thirimanne, Now Price and Mpofu do some stylish celebrations! It was a full delivery which has been square driven straight to point! Even as Mpofu cradles an imaginary baby, Taibu, who has just had a second child, envelops him with a hug. And Price joins in and he and Mpofu have a little dance - tapping each others' foot.. 219/8

Chamu Chibhabha4040010.00106100
Ray Price9.514214.27352130
47.3 to T Thushara, And then they were one. Price slowed up the pace and also gave it bit of air outside off.. Thushara went for the slog sweep and ended up dragging it to deep midwicket. 235/9
Prosper Utseya1004124.10321100
20.2 to TM Dilshan, Stumped! Done in by the floater. Dilshan was down the track for the big shot but the ball drifted away and he ended up chasing it well away from his body and missed. Taibu did the rest. 122/1
24.3 to LD Chandimal, Utseya takes his second wicket. He floated it outside off and got it to straighten as well. Chandimal, who had cut a similar delivery for couple of runs earlier, went for the cut shot again. But this time the ball flew straight to backward point. Utseya wins this mini-battle.. 134/2
Graeme Cremer803324.12181000
35.3 to WU Tharanga, Done in the flight. Tharanga went down the track but couldn't get to the pitch of the ball and ended up slicing it towards long-off. Coventry rushed in from the deep and lunged forward to take a good catch. 181/4
37.5 to BMAJ Mendis, It was a pretty short delivery actually if not a long hop. Mendis opened his stance and went for the pull but got more elevation than distance. Taylor moved in from deep midwicket to collect that. 192/5
Hamilton Masakadza301214.0080000
29.3 to CK Kapugedera, now that's a celebration. Soft dismissal, Kapu doesn't quite get to the pitch of a length ball and chips an easy return catch to Masakadza, who throws the ball in the air, and then lifts his shirt to show his vest with "just married" inscribed on it. 155/3

Thilan Thushara9.515015.08352160
4.2 to H Masakadza, Masakadza's new wife must have winced. A bouncer on the leg stump line and he goes for the pull but gloves it behind for a leg-side catch to the keeper.. 14/1

31.4 to CJ Chibhabha, Plumb in front. It landed on a length and skidded on straight .. Chibhabha went back and tried to work it to the leg side but was beaten by the lack of turn. It went on straight and skidded quickly to catch him in front .... 148/2
