24.6 overs (2 Runs) Lovely shot! Two to end the over! Very full around off, Holder creams it through covers. The fielder in the ring might have got a hand to it as it slows down as it reaches the ropes. The sweeper runs to his right and saves two for his side.

22.3 overs (0 Run) Floated on off, Holder drives it to the man at cover.
22.2 overs (0 Run) NOT OUT! Smart work from Perera but to no use. Floated around off, Holder looks to defend but the retracts. Perera waits for Holder to lift his back foot up but the toes were in when Kusal takes off the bails. Had Kusal waited a bit longer, he might have had his man.
Stumping appeal is referred upstairs. Has Kusal Perera taken the bails off just in time? The replays find that though it was nice thinking from the keeper to wait before removing the bails, Holder's right leg never left the crease. He dragged it just a bit but had it nicely planted all the time.

There is a bowling change. Dhananjaya de Silva is back into the attack to bowl his offies. 5-0-17-0, he was very economical in his first spell inside Powerplay 1.
