    7.4 there's the maiden wicket! Full on off stump, slashes at it away from his body, and it's in the air. Tries to heave it over long on, but goes towards the cover-boundary instead. Taken by Dananjaya 59/4
    1.4 full and wide outside off, too wide actually, but Sarkar chases at it. Gets his bat to it but played with the bat's open face. It's a skyer, and comfortably taken by Jeevan Mendis at point 8/1
    2.3 back of a length outside off, it's pulled but mistimed! Hit straighter than he wanted to, and it's comfortably taken by mid on. Never in control of that shot. There's the second wicket and the bowler is pumped! 14/2
    2.6 leading edge! There's the third wicket. Good length on middle and leg stump, tries to flick towards square leg but takes the leading edge towards mid on. Simple, soft catch. Madushanka is jubilant 22/3
    14.2 drops a catch, but gets a wicket anyway! Slower ball outside off, tries to hit it straight over the bowler, but mistimed. Udana sticks his left hand out, but the ball pops out. The non-striker is halfway down the wicket anyway, and Jeevan Mendis - from mid on - swoops in, and throws the ball to Udana, who does the rest. 110/6
    8.4 plumb! Full on off stump, spinning slightly into the right hander, and he defends down the wrong line. Hits his front pad, and would've crashed into middle stump. Terrific delivery 68/5
    14.5 holes out to deep midwicket! short on middle stump, and it's pulled well, but finds the one man in the deep on the leg side. The fielder did not even have to move to his left or right. Picks the man out. A promising innings comes to an end 113/7
    17.5 short and wide outside off, allowing him to free his arms. But that's exactly what Sri Lanka want. Hit hard, but not hard enough - goes down the throat of deep extra cover. 132/8
    18.1 full just outside off, spinning into the batsman, tries to drive straight but the ball zips between bat and pad. Crashes into off stump and that's the ninth-wicket. The umpire wants to have a look at the no ball, but he's good. 132/9
    18.4 Gunathilaka shows the cobra celebration to the non-striker! Good length outside off stump, angling further away and the batsman shimmies down the wicket to meet it. Misses, and stumped! Sri Lanka win by 75 runs 135/10
