Binura Fernando402716.75103010
17.6 to HT Tector, Toe-ends a full toss and it's taken at mid-off! Tector was charging down, so Fernando went wide. Tried to slash it over extra but ballooned it.. 117/6
Lahiru Kumara201216.0062000
1.1 to A Balbirnie, Balbirnie shuffles across to paddle, Kumara aims for middle stump and crashes it! The movement across was telegraphed early and Kumara was proactive enough to take advantage. Balbirnie looked to shovel it fine, where there was no fielder, but overbalanced with his left leg getting a bit stuck as he squared up and ended up missing it.. 2/1
Maheesh Theekshana401924.7581000
4.4 to LJ Tucker, Tucker goes across again, gloves it back on to the stumps. Theekshana gets out the arrow celebration. The vacant fine-leg area was the carrot that the bowler dangled and it induced the bite. Like the last ball, Tucker went early and looked to sweep it fine. This time, the connection was much weaker. Both wickets fall in a similar fashion.. 26/2
16.5 to GH Dockrell, Off bail dislodged. Dockrell's struggle is voer and Theekshana's arrows are firing again! It was a flicker (carrom) informs Thilak, our scorer, that landed on a length. Dockrell stayed leg side and looked to go inside out but missed it.. 107/5
Chamika Karunaratne402917.2572100
9.6 to C Campher, Cuts, finds point! Asalanka takes a sharp catch to the left, it was travelling but was close to him. He clasped and held on. Karunaratne is thrilled as he jumps and pumps the air. The ball and shot were similar to the third ball in this over, the difference was the shot being aerial this time.. 60/4
Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva402526.2560100
18.1 to GJ Delany, And the star Sri-Lankan spinner in among the wickets. Flighted googly outside off. Delany tries to slog sweep but does not account for the longer boundary. Chamika Karunaratne seemed to have lost it but managed to grab it on the second attempt.. 117/7
18.4 to MR Adair, Down the track, swiped. Decent connection but it's the long boundary and Chamika Karunaratne takes it at deep midwicket. It was a shortish, very slow ball outside off. Adair dragged it across and fell short by a few metres.. 118/8
Dhananjaya de Silva201316.5031000
8.4 to PR Stirling, Rajapaksa takes an excellent catch at deep extra cover. It was a full ball outside off, Stirling reached out and looked to slap it to the shorter boundary. Might have gotten it straighter than he would have wanted. Rajapaksa started his run to the left from long-off and flew across to grab it. Big wicket!. 55/3

8.2 to DM de Silva, sharp catch by the gloveman! Fullish outside off. Turning away sharply. De Silva looks to cut, but some extra bounce gets the edge. DDS chased at the ball, and pays the price for it.. 63/1
