Jayawardene has come up with another one of his sparkling fifties. Sunny G on air gave a wonderful insight on how Mahela uses both the bottom-hand and upper-hand well, therefore he can pull and drive the ball with ease. He's showed his full range today with shots all over the park. It's been a beautiful innings, laced with drives, flicks, nudges and all with a dollop of elegance.

Jadeja came into bowl and immediately Sanga went down the track and lofted the bowler over midwicket for a maximum. MSD has kept his faith in Jadeja right through the CB series, despite the cricketer misfiring. I still can't understand why Tiwary can't get a chance and Jadeja keeps on playing in spite of some insipid displays. We need Holmes and Watson to solve this one.
