When he was caught at deep cover off Steyn an early end to the innings seemed likely. <p></p> <p></p>But Lasith Embuldeniya and Rajitha defied the bowlers for 55 minutes, adding 32 for the ninth wicket despite being subjected to numerous short-pitched deliveries. The stand was eventually ended when Rajitha was run out by sharp fielding by Aiden Markram at short leg when he strayed out of his crease while playing a defensive shot. <p></p> <p></p>Test debutant Embuldeniya was struck several times before he was last man out for 24.
