Dilshan seemed to be struggling to get his game going. He tried to hit his way out as he charged down the ground to James Tredwell. But his straight drive was half-stopped by Tredwell and he only got a single.

Tim Bresnan dropped the catch to his right. Jordan then bowled one short and Dilshan pulled it away for a four towards deep mid-wicket.
