OUT! Gone on the second ball of the day! Embuldeniya tosses it up in the air and lands in the rough outside leg.

Lahiru Kumara runs in a bit from deep square leg, keeps his eyes on the ball and takes the skier safely. That was in the air for quite some time and credit to the fielder for maintaining his composure. No century for Colin but it was an entertaining knock by him.
