View dismissal LD Chandimal c Mohammad Shahzad b Amjad Javed 50 55 39 7 1 128.20
13.2 84.7 mph, fifty and out! Back of a length and outside off, Chandimal takes it from there and slogs it into the lap of midwicket. Chandi hit that hard but placement deserted him... Target practice 89/3
View dismissal TM Dilshan c Muhammad Usman b Amjad Javed 27 36 28 4 0 96.42
9.1 82.5 mph, and he breaks the strong opening stand! Short ball just a shade outside off, Dilshan shapes to pull. He fetches it from there and mis-hits it to deep midwicket. Dilshan never really found his rhythm 68/1
View dismissal TAM Siriwardana c Saqlain Haider b Amjad Javed 6 8 7 0 0 85.71
11.1 82.0 mph, Siri has been bounced out too. Dug in short and cramping Siri for room. He looks to pull and miscues it to deep midwicket, the fielder moves to his right to snap it up. Two in two overs for Amjad. Can UAE build on this? 79/2
View dismissal MD Shanaka c Shaiman Anwar b Mohammad Naveed 5 18 11 0 0 45.45
15.2 85.7 mph, Shanaka picks out mid-off. His slow struggle is over. Length ball on off, he moves outside leg and slaps it to Anwar. SL slump further 98/4
View dismissal AD Mathews lbw b Rohan Mustafa 8 15 9 0 0 88.88
16.1 64.1 mph, Sri Lanka five down, Rohan wheels away in celebration. Non-turning ball, fired in, Mathews can't connect with an ambitious reverse sweep. He is hit on the pad in front of the leg stump 105/5
View dismissal DSNFG Jayasuriya b Mohammad Naveed 10 11 7 2 0 142.85
17.3 86.5 mph, Jayasuriya aims for an encore and fails. A touch fuller on middle, he shuffles across for a lap-scoop again. He misses. Naveed knocks the middle stump back. SL losing wickets in a heap 113/6
View dismissal CK Kapugedera c Ahmed Raza b Mohammad Shahzad 10 13 11 0 0 90.90
19.1 85.8 mph, Shahzad has a sheepish little smile on his face. Off-stump full toss, heaved straight to deep midwicket. That should have been heaved over him; it was the shorter part of the ground as well. It has been that kind of a day for SL. Replays confirm the full toss was below the waistline and Kapu has to go 123/7
View dismissal KMDN Kulasekara c †Patil b Mohammad Shahzad 7 11 7 1 0 100.00
19.6 72.4 mph, and the innings ends with a wicket. Slower bouncer outside off, Kula wants to swipe over midwicket. He can't get on top of the bounce. He skies a top edge, this is caught by the keeper 129/8

View dismissal Rohan Mustafa lbw b Malinga 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
0.1 86.4 mph, Malinga strikes first ball! Nice and full, swings in, close to 140ks, to rap the pad in front. It would have taken out the leg stump 0/1
View dismissal Muhammad Kaleem c Mathews b Kulasekara 7 16 11 0 0 63.63
3.2 79.1 mph, Kula gets Kaleem now. Length ball on off, Kaleem wants to go over mid-off. He can only miscue it to the fielder. Malinga and Kula have tipped the scales in SL's favour. Mathews catches it around chest height 14/3
View dismissal Mohammad Shahzad b Malinga 1 4 2 0 0 50.00
0.6 70.6 mph, double-blow from Malinga. This was a little over 20ks slower than the first ball. 113.7ks, in fact. Shahzad has a leaden-footed drive at it. The ball slithers under the bat to hit the off stump. Shahzad was through with the shot. Malinga is back at work. There is that roar! 7/2
View dismissal Muhammad Usman c Kapugedera b Kulasekara 6 13 9 1 0 66.66
3.5 81.8 mph, Kula gets another. Usman dances out for a leg-side slog. He can only send a thick edge to slip around head height. Good catch from Kapu, but poor shot selection on the part of Usman. The chase is in tatters at 16 for 4 16/4
View dismissal Shaiman Anwar c †Chandimal b Herath 13 18 15 2 0 86.66
7.5 53.3 mph, slides on outside off, Anwar skips back to cut a ball that was neither too short nor too wide. He can only edge it behind to the keeper. The UAE procession continues 38/5
View dismissal SP Patil c & b Malinga 37 57 36 3 2 102.77
16.3 73.1 mph, Malinga's slower ball does the trick, again. Short and around off at 117.7ks, Patil looks to go over midwicket. He can only lob it in the air off the leading edge. Malinga follows the ball, runs to his left, and takes it near the short-cover region 85/7
View dismissal Saqlain Haider c †Chandimal b Herath 1 10 9 0 0 11.11
9.5 51.1 mph, flighted and full outside off, Haider attempts a big slog. He can only sky a catch to Chandimal off a big top edge. UAE are falling away quickly. Two each for Malinga, Kula, and Herath. Chandimal took a few paces forward to take it in front of the batsman 47/6
View dismissal Amjad Javed* c Kapugedera b Kulasekara 13 34 18 0 0 72.22
17.4 75.4 mph, Kapu completes a fine overhead catch at long-off. Length ball on off, Amjad clears his front leg and swings it. Kapu judges it well and takes it. Amjad got the elevation but not the desired distance 93/8
View dismissal Mohammad Naveed c Mathews b Malinga 10 12 10 1 0 100.00
18.5 83.4 mph, fullish and outside off, Naveed makes swinging room by backing away. He can only slice it in the air to Mathews at cover. Malinga has blown UAE away 99/9
