Over 26.3: Reviewed by Sri Lanka (Bowling), Original Decision: Not Out, Final Decision: Out
26.3 A Dananjaya to C Ervine, OUT, brave brave brave review from Mathews. Length ball, pitches on leg and turn in, Ervine was looking to defend it off the back foot, goes back and doesn't make any connection. The players go up, umpire says not-out.
