Dananjaya to Curran, OUT , a massive wipe and Curran edges to slip! A huge wicket for Sri Lanka, tossed up by Akila, tempting Curran into a flat-batted mow through the covers. But the extra loop also meant extra turn away from the blade, and it ended up as a simple outside edge to Chandimal, who is still hobbling after damaging his groin earlier…

SM Curran c Chandimal b Dananjaya 48 (104b 1x4 3x6) SR: 46.15

Currently 262/7

Juts noticed “a massive wipe”!! Was he taking a dump in the middle of the pitch??

87.4 W

Perera to Rashid, OUT , a slash, an edge, a wicket! One shot too many for Rashid, looking for the drive, but beaten by the angle across his bows. A sharp chance into Dhananjaya’s breadbasket, and an enterprising knock comes to an end

AU Rashid c de Silva b Perera 35 (38b 4x4 2x6) SR: 92.10

TBF Rashid has been twatting the bowlers around a fair bit
