FDM Karunaratne (c) scored 19 runs and out when it was (10.1 length, angles across him, and he has nicked this through! This went at 135kph, and more than the pace it was the angle. Karunaratne gets sucked into going forward, and the natural angle away from him takes a feather edge through to de Kock. Karunaratne was looking solid. This could send some shock waves through the dressing room 34/2).

HDRL Thirimanne faced 27 balls and scored 10 runs when his wicket fallen then it happened like this (9.2 got the edge this time!
