Chase to Kumara, OUT, length ball on middle, and the ball sneaks through bat and pad as he tries to defend. Takes the inside edge, and snaffled by Dowrich. They appeal long and hard, and finally the umpire raises his finger. West Indies win by 226 runs!

Chase to Lakmal, OUT, length ball outside off, and spinning in sharply. Lakmal pushes at it, and the goes past his outside edge. Well taken by Dowrich, and they appeal for the caught behind. Given by umpire Kettleborough. Lakmal is bemused, but SL don't have any reviews left. Replays show daylight between bat and ball. Oh my

Bishoo to Herath, OUT, full just outside off, and Herath tries to work it towards the leg side. Some extra bounce off the rough, and the ball finds his inside edge, and lobs straight to forward short leg. West Indies two wickets away...

Chase to Dickwella, OUT, appeal for lbw, and given! Two in one over. Roston Chase the trump card! Dickwella's reviewing though. Full, and lands just outside off. Slides in slightly, and hits Dickwella's front pad as he prods forward. No bat on UltraEdge, and the ball would've gone on to hit the top of middle stump. SL seven down, and the umpires call for lunch.

Chase to Chandimal, OUT, miscued at mid on! Seven minutes before lunch. Oh dear, Chandimal, what have you done. Full on off, and he tries to slog it over the infield. Comes down the ground, but loses his shape as he tries to smack it towards the on-side. Slices it, and Brathwaite calls early for the catch. Difficult catch, especially since he the ball was always going away from him

Bishoo to Gamage, OUT, set him up beautifully there. Kept bowling the legbreaks and then drew him forward again, except this time it was a googly that beat Gamage's forward prod. Hit on the knee roll, no inside edge, so the only thing that could've saved him was if this was missing. Hawkeye shows this would've crashed into middle and leg. Not only do Sri Lanka lose their nightwatchman but they also lose a review. Horrendous review. Why would they waste it on a tailender? I'm not too sure. Holder and co celebrate.

Gabriel to Mendis, OUT, in a rare occasion, the extra ball actually pays off for the bowling side! And it's not even a no ball... Mendis must go. Length ball outside off, but the delivery jumps off the surface and surprises the batsman. He tries to pull his bat out of the ball's way, but the ball zoots past the bat, takes a touch of his glove, and then finds Dowrich's hands. Unplayable, says Ian Bishop on commentary

Bishoo to Silva, OUT, soft, soft catch! The ball kinda stopped on Silva, and therefore he found the leading edge to the bowler. Was short, and Silva tried to work it towards midwicket. the ball takes the edge, and pops up straight into the hands of Bishoo.

Holder to Mathews, OUT, oh man, feather touch down the leg side! Commentator's curse, perhaps, but Mathews was living dangerously while shuffling to the off side. The ball was on middle, and Mathews tried to work it fine down the leg side. Deflected straight into the gloves of Dowrich

AD Mathews c †Dowrich b Holder 31 (125m 80b 3x4 0x6) SR: 38.75

Gabriel to MDKJ Perera, OUT, taken at first slip! Are they checking for the no-ball? Nope. Back of a length outside off, but angling into Perera. He tries to work it towards the leg side, but the ball takes a leading edge and finds itself inside Smith's hands. One down, nine more to go.

MDKJ Perera c Smith b Gabriel 12 (19m 10b 2x4 0x6) SR: 120.00
