View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez c Chandimal b Prasanna 27 67 51 3 0 52.94
15.2 Just when a wicket falls in Johannesburg, another one falls here! Hafeez goes for ambitious slog sweep, he doesn't get the elevation to clear long leg and Chandimal takes the catch 57/2
View dismissal Imran Farhat c †Sangakkara b Fernando 10 29 17 2 0 58.82
6.1 that's a really slick catch by Sangakkara! It was not a wicket-taking ball, down the leg side, meant to be flicked to fine leg, Farhat however could only glove it and Sangakkara anticipated it early, moved to his right and took it with one hand on the dive, he took it barely inches from the ground 18/1
View dismissal Younis Khan c Mendis b Fernando 18 44 27 1 0 66.66
16.1 and Fernando yet again picks up a wicket with a first ball of a spell, soft dismissal this time, he fails to read the slower ball, comes forward too early and ends up tamely scooping it to Mendis at short cover 62/3
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq* run out (Fernando/Mendis) 16 59 34 2 0 47.05
27.6 Mendis to Shahid Afridi, Communication breakdown! Gets an inside edge down to fine leg, Misbah set off but Afridi wasn't interested, loads of confusion and Misbah had no option but to scamper back, he was miles out of his ground, in fact he had given up 97/6
View dismissal Shoaib Malik lbw b Mendis 2 26 22 0 0 9.09
21.6 big appeal for a lbw and the umpire Zameer Haider gives him out! Massive googly by Mendis, Malik is trapped at the crease, he tries to rock back and play but the ball zips back in and traps him in front of the stumps, Malik thinks about reviewing it and discusses it with Misbah but he walks 69/4
View dismissal Umar Akmal lbw b Mendis 2 7 5 0 0 40.00
23.5 another massive appeal! This time SL go for the referral, Haider thinks about it and says not out, Akmal goes right back at the crease and fails to pick the googly, the ball appears to hit him on the back leg in line with the leg stump, the third umpire confirms that he is gone and Haider has to reverse his decision 71/5
View dismissal Shahid Afridi c †Sangakkara b Perera 75 87 65 4 3 115.38
43.6 That ends a superb rearguard effort by Afridi! He chased a full and wide delivery, the ball clipped the outside edge and flew to Sanga's right, he held it with one hand, Afridi was uncertain whether he hit the ball on the ground but in fact it was his bat 181/8
View dismissal Sarfraz Ahmed lbw b Prasanna 10 24 17 0 0 58.82
34.2 we have a review here, the ball lands on middle and leg and straightens, Sarfraz is a half stride forward and the ball appears to hit him in line with the stumps, the umpire gives him out but there was a doubt if there was an inside edge, Pakistan refer it, the umpire takes his time and upholds the umpire's decision 120/7
View dismissal Saeed Ajmal lbw b Fernando 20 52 37 1 0 54.05
46.6 the yorker consumes him, full and straight on the middle stump, Ajmal is rooted to the crease and plays all around it, on the base of the pad, plumb in front 191/9
View dismissal Umar Gul b Malinga 7 19 13 0 0 53.84
49.3 the offstump is knocked out! Gul made a bit of room but was too late in getting his bat down on time, he tried to hit across the line 200/10

View dismissal WU Tharanga c Younis Khan b Aizaz Cheema 16 16 13 3 0 123.07
3.3 that's a sharp catch! Cheema pitches it up outside off, angles it across Tharanga, he cannot resist another slash down to third man but the ball clips the top edge of the bat and Younis Khan cups it over his head at first slip, good reflexes 18/1
View dismissal TM Dilshan* c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Aizaz Cheema 11 42 21 2 0 52.38
7.6 that's an awesome delivery, they appeal for a caught behind and Dilshan asks for a referral! The ball shapes in from outside off, draws Dilshan forward, the ball deviates before reaching the keeper and the keeper and bowler start celebrating, Dilshan wants it referred, there was the sound of a snick when seeing the replay on TV but there was no apparent deviation after it missed the bat, must have been a thin edge, the decision is upheld 37/2
View dismissal KC Sangakkara b Shahid Afridi 58 147 103 6 0 56.31
37.5 he's breached his defenses! But has it come too late? Sangakkara was beaten for the turn on the drive, lunged forward and the ball spun in and went past the bat-pad gap 155/4
View dismissal LD Chandimal b Mohammad Hafeez 11 23 19 2 0 57.89
12.4 he's hit the timber! Something like how Dilshan got out in the third match, he moved right across his stumps to paddle him, the ball strikes the bat and then drags to the stumps 53/3
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene c Mohammad Hafeez b Shahid Afridi 55 125 87 2 1 63.21
43.2 and it's that man again! Sharp catch by Hafeez to go with it, Afridi tosses it up outside off and Mahela cannot resist going for it, he scoops it hard and Hafeez at short cover falls forward and judges the catch well 168/7
View dismissal AD Mathews c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Saeed Ajmal 0 2 4 0 0 0.00
38.4 now what have we here? He drifts down the leg side and Mathews has a feel for it, nicks it to the keeper as he tries to nudge it own, Sarfraz knows it and so does the umpire 156/5
View dismissal BMAJ Mendis lbw b Shahid Afridi 2 10 7 0 0 28.57
41.3 another one bites the dust and this time Afridi stretches his arms and legs wide in celebration, the offcutter lands on middle and traps Mendis in front of the stumps, plumb, he was expecting it to spin away 161/6
View dismissal NLTC Perera c Umar Akmal b Shahid Afridi 7 21 11 1 0 63.63
45.2 Afridi goes one better by taking five wickets! Perera went for the mighty slog and got a top edge, it was in the air for an hour but it was Akmal who got under it. An incredible Pakistan fightback, reminiscent from the 1990s and earlier, and quite an unbelievable collapse by SL 174/10
View dismissal S Prasanna c & b Shahid Afridi 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
43.3 and he's on a hat-trick! This is incredible! Tossed up quicker outside off, he drives hard and Afridi anticipates it well and moves to his left very quickly, he catches it inches off the ground 168/8
View dismissal SL Malinga lbw b Saeed Ajmal 4 6 6 0 0 66.66
44.5 and Ajmal gets it to skid through! Tossed up on middle and it just snuck through that gap between bat and pad, Malinga was at the crease and clueless, perhaps he was expecting it to turn in, plumb in front 174/9
