The opener of the team KC Sangakkara † gave a strong start to his team by scoring 63 runs off 44 balls. He smashed five 4s and three 6s in his beautiful innings. When his wicket dismissed then it happened like this: 16.5 a short delivery this time, the change in length has worked. A bouncer down leg hurries Sangakkara through his pull, all he manages is a pull into the hands of long-on. Could not get any timing behind that 147/3.
