11.4 finally Tharanga's troubled stay comes to an end, he had played and missed many times already and this time he gets the edge, a length ball just outside off, a thin edge through to the keeper 45/2
View dismissal ST Jayasuriya c Mohammad Amir b Umar Gul 15 38 19 1 0 78.94
8.2 Gul strikes with his second delivery, Jayasuriya is gone, not the greatest of deliveries, short and wide, Jayasuriya has both feet off the ground as he cuts the ball, a bit of a top edge, straight to Mohammad Aamer at third man 31/1
View dismissal KC Sangakkara*† c Shahid Afridi b Saeed Ajmal 36 62 40 3 0 90.00
21.2 Sangakkara holes out to point, huge wicket for Ajmal, slower through the air and gets some turn there, Sangakkara looked to cut it over the infield but ends up giving an easy catch to Afridi 93/3
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene run out (Younis Khan/†Kamran Akmal) 33 88 56 1 0 58.92
33.2 from Abdul Razzaq, is that a run-out? Jayawardene was in trouble as he was coming back for the second, he's well out of his ground, but it remains to be seen whether the keeper has the ball in his hand as he broke the stumps, after several replays the third umpire is satisfied Akmal had the ball in his gloves and Jayawardene has to go, there was never two runs in that, the ball had barely made it past the inner circle near midwicket, Younis was onto it quickly and threw it to the right end, the keepers, and Sri Lanka are in big trouble now 131/6
View dismissal CK Kapugedera c †Kamran Akmal b Shahid Afridi 8 13 18 0 0 44.44
26.1 Afridi strikes, Kapugedera drives away from his body at a length ball outside off, results in an outside edge which Akmal collects gleefully 106/4
View dismissal TT Samaraweera c Younis Khan b Abdul Razzaq 10 18 19 1 0 52.63

View dismissal AD Mathews c & b Mohammad Amir 43 69 50 3 0 86.00
47.1 Mathews' innings comes to an end, caught and bowled, he was too early into his shot and only managed to lob it back to the bowler Aamer, who juggled it a few times before hanging on 204/8
View dismissal KMDN Kulasekara c Abdul Razzaq b Mohammad Amir 16 43 33 1 0 48.48
44.3 Kulasekara departs as Razzaq hangs on to a skier, the batsman was looking to clear mid-off for a boundary, the ball goes high towards extra cover, Razzaq dropped a similar one earlier in the day but doesn't blow it this time 173/7
View dismissal M Muralitharan b Mohammad Amir 32 24 15 4 1 213.33
49.1 Aamer ends the Murali show with a yorker which hits the base of offstump, Aamer has kept his head despite the glut of runs, good work from the youngster 223/9

View dismissal Kamran Akmal b Thushara 20 41 26 4 0 76.92
9.1 he strikes first ball, Akmal is cleaned up, no footwork at all from Akmal, back of a length ball, the batsman is stuck on the crease and the ball sneaks between bat and pad to crash into middle and off stumps 41/2
View dismissal Shoaib Malik b Kulasekara 9 29 19 1 0 47.36
6.5 Kulasekara finally gets rid of Malik, who has looked completely out of touch here, this was just short of a length, pitching on off and holding it's line, Malik was look for the inward movement, the ball takes the off bail 29/1
View dismissal Shahid Afridi c †Sangakkara b Thushara 27 50 28 1 1 96.42
16.3 an awful shot to get out, Afridi had looked in good touch till then, short and wide, Afridi has to reach across as he looks to dab it towards slip, can only feather it through to the keeper, Rameez Raja points out on TV that we would have praised it as a cheeky shot if he had pulled it off 73/4
View dismissal Mohammad Yousuf c †Sangakkara b Kulasekara 4 9 10 1 0 40.00
10.6 he's a goner this time, length ball outside off, moving away from Yousuf, who flirts with it and gets a nick to the keeper, superb spell of bowling from Kulasekara 48/3
View dismissal Younis Khan* c Mathews b Thushara 12 37 23 1 0 52.17
18.3 Younis Khan joins the procession, Sri Lanka are well on top here, a short and wide delivery gets the wicket again, Younis cuts it straight to third man 78/5
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq c & b Muralitharan 9 37 23 0 0 39.13
25.5 another soft dismissal, Misbah's gone this time just as Pakistan seemed to be re-building, straighter one does the trick, pitched on a length just outside leg, Misbah looked to slip it to the leg side, gets a leading edge which lobs back to the bowler 95/6
View dismissal Fawad Alam c †Sangakkara b Jayasuriya 31 69 58 2 0 53.44
36.4 arm ball from Jayasuriya does the job, Fawad is gone, he was on the front foot trying to push that to the off side, nicks it to the keeper, and that could well be the end of Pakistan's chances 134/7
View dismissal Abdul Razzaq lbw b Muralitharan 17 44 35 1 0 48.57
37.2 Murali strikes with the second ball of this spell, pitching on middle and off and turning in, Razzaq was caught on the back foot looking to turn the ball towards the leg side, no doubt about that one 134/8
View dismissal Umar Gul b Malinga 33 45 21 6 0 157.14
44.4 that's the end of that, Malinga gets the perfect yorker on middle and leg, Gul misses, the stumps are shattered, Sri Lanka are 1-0 up in this series 196/10
View dismissal Mohammad Amir run out (Jayawardene) 23 39 26 2 0 88.46
44.3 from Malinga, Aamer jabs a fullish delivery to backward point and is run out, Jayawardene has done the job for Sri Lanka, the bowlers were struggling to break the partnership, but Jayawardene throws down the stumps at the bowler's end with a direct hit, Aamer forgets to drag his bat into the crease and that error means he doesn't make his ground, he has to go 196/9
