4.1

Sohail Tanvir to Jayasuriya, OUT, lbw! Tanvir pitches the ball on a good length outside off and seams it into the left-hander, Jayasuriya gets caught on the crease and the ball beats his tentative defence and thuds into the pad plumb in front of middle, this time Tony Hill agrees with Tanvir's appeal

ST Jayasuriya lbw b Sohail Tanvir 8 (19m 14b 1x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

Sri Lanka 22/1   KC Sangakkara 12* (11b 2x4)   Sohail Tanvir 2.1-1-4-1

13.3

Sohail Tanvir to Jayawardene, OUT, caught! Jayawardene tries to cut the ball once again but this time the line is too close to the body for the shot, he doesn't time it well and the ball flies towards point where Misbah takes a sharp catch to his right

DPMD Jayawardene c Misbah-ul-Haq b Sohail Tanvir 29 (45m 40b 5x4 0x6) SR: 72.50

28.4

Mansoor Amjad to Kapugedera, OUT, Amjad's picked up his maiden wicket!! He pitched the ball outside off stump and Kapugedera tried to play the slog sweep against the turn, he got a top edge that flew high in the air towards deep midwicket where Younis Khan settled under the catch, Amjad is understandably and visibly delighted

CK Kapugedera c Younis Khan b Mansoor Amjad 43 (65m 58b 2x4 2x6) SR: 74.13

Sri Lanka 150/3   KC Sangakkara 55* (61b 5x4)   Mansoor Amjad 1.4-0-5-1

42.3

Sohail Tanvir to Silva, OUT, caught! Tanvir delivers from extremely wide of the crease and angles the ball into the right-hander, Silva stays in his crease and opens the face, trying to play the ball to third man, the ball bounces a bit more and takes the edge through to Sarfraz

LPC Silva c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Sohail Tanvir 46 (54m 48b 5x4 0x6) SR: 95.83

Sri Lanka 243/4   KC Sangakkara 100* (96b 9x4 1x6)   Sohail Tanvir 6.3-1-26-3

46.6

Sohail Tanvir to Sangakkara, OUT, bowled him! Tanvir gets his fourth! Sangakkara moves outside the line of off stump and tries to chip a full ball over the fielder at short fine leg, he misses and the ball hits off and middle stump, off he goes to get some rest before he comes out to keep again, excellent innings

KC Sangakkara b Sohail Tanvir 112 (202m 110b 10x4 1x6) SR: 101.81

Sohail Tanvir to Thushara, OUT, caught! And well caught! Tanvir picks up his maiden five-for in ODIs, he pitched the ball short and Thushara pulled it flat off the front foot, the ball was traveling flat and quickly towards deep midwicket where Wahab ran to his left and took a sharp catch
