View dismissal WU Tharanga c Younis Khan b Shahid Afridi 77 175 120 8 0 64.16
41.2 caught at wide long-on! Afridi's struck. Tharanga tried to launch the ball over the midwicket boundary but mis-timed it, Younis Khan settled under a simple catch 179/4
View dismissal TM Dilshan* b Shahid Afridi 28 55 40 4 0 70.00
11.2 bowled him! There's the signature Afridi celebration, legs splayed, arms aloft, fingers pointing to the sky. Dilshan once again tried to cut the ball when there was no room. It pitched on off and slid straight through, beating the bat and crashing into the stumps. 56/1
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c & b Abdul Razzaq 5 12 13 0 0 38.46
14.6 such a soft dismissal! Sangakkara pushed forward too early to a very slow ball and tried to play down the ground. He ended up popping the easiest of return catches towards Razzaq's left, comfortably taken 65/2
View dismissal LD Chandimal b Saeed Ajmal 15 39 37 1 0 40.54
26.3 bowled him! Chandimal, after a slow innings, tried to break free by clearing his front foot towards leg side and trying to mow over midwicket. The straighter ball from Ajmal beat the bat and hit off stump 94/3
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene b Saeed Ajmal 50 89 57 5 0 87.71
47.1 bowled him! Mahela moved a long way towards the leg side to cut Ajmal through the off side. He ended up being too far away from the ball and had to reach for it. Ajmal's line was straight and he hit middle and off stumps after Mahela did not connect. The 10,000 landmark will have to wait. 210/6
View dismissal AD Mathews c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Aizaz Cheema 3 7 4 0 0 75.00
42.5 huge appeal for caught behind and Pakistan review umpire Richard Illingworth's not-out decision. It was a short of a length delivery outside off stump, which Mathews tried to steer to third man. There was a definite noise as the ball passed the bat, although there was no obvious deviation. The noise is good enough for the umpires, though. The decision has been overturned and Mathews is on his way 189/5
BMAJ Mendis not out 17 32 17 1 0 100.00
View dismissal NLTC Perera st †Sarfraz Ahmed b Saeed Ajmal 13 10 12 0 1 108.33
49.5 stumped! Perera comes out of his crease to try and clear the leg side boundary, he gets beaten by a quicker ball that is fired into him, Sarfraz breaks the stumps with the batsman well out of his ground 233/7

  Mohammad Hafeez 8 1 22 0 2.75 33 1 0
  Pakistan innings (target: 236 runs from 50 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez c †Sangakkara b Malinga 4 2 3 1 0 133.33
0.3 caught behind! Hafeez has nicked one that pitched on a good length around off and seamed away from the right-hander, he prodded at it from his crease without using his feet and got a thick edge, which Sangakkara caught with ease 4/1
View dismissal Imran Farhat lbw b Perera 3 20 10 0 0 30.00
3.2 lbw! Farhat's been given but he's reviewed the decision. Did that pitch in line with the stumps? It did. The ball landed on middle from over the wicket and bent back into the left-hander, beating the bat as it came across the front pad to hit the knee roll. That is plumb. He was hit on the crease 11/3
View dismissal Younis Khan c †Sangakkara b Malinga 0 2 2 0 0 0.00
0.5 stunning catch from Sangakkara! He leaped full length to his right to grab the ball with one hand from right in front of first slip. Younis had also poked at the away-seaming delivery without moving his feet and got an edge thicker than Hafeez's. Pakistan in early strife. Younis could have and should have let that go. 4/2
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq* lbw b Fernando 21 90 53 0 0 39.62
19.4 lbw! No question about that one and I suspect Misbah knew it as soon as the ball slammed into his pad in front of middle stump. He moved across his crease to play on the leg side and was beaten by one that angled into him from a good length around off stump 75/4
View dismissal Umar Akmal c Chandimal b Fernando 91 147 102 8 1 89.21
37.6 what has he done! After hitting three consecutive boundaries and bringing the asking-rate below six an over, Akmal's thrown it away. He made room once again by moving towards leg and hit a full ball hard and flat but straight to mid-on, where Chandimal took the catch. The ball was hit so hard that Chandimal fell backwards as he caught it and then tumbled over his head 164/6
View dismissal Abdul Razzaq run out (Perera/Mendis) 11 19 22 0 0 50.00
26.3 Mendis to Umar Akmal, Razzaq's been run out! Akmal hit the ball to wide long-on and the batsmen decided to run a difficult second. Perera's throw from the deep was flat and fast, reaching Mendis on the bounce. The bowler collected and broke the stumps with Razzaq about a foot short 102/5
View dismissal Sarfraz Ahmed lbw b Malinga 24 50 37 1 0 64.86
38.1 lbw! A low full toss that is dead straight and dipping on the batsman. Sarfraz tries to flick across the line and misses the ball. He's hit flush in front of the stumps. And just like that both set batsmen have been dismissed. On second thought, however, that might have been swinging down leg side. It looked close at normal speed though. 164/7
View dismissal Shahid Afridi run out (Dilshan) 29 31 14 3 1 207.14
43.3 Fernando to Saeed Ajmal, There's only one left now! Afridi's a goner. Ajmal played the ball close on the off side and Afridi began to thunder down the pitch for the single to get on strike. Dilshan was the fielder sprinting in from backward point, swooping on the ball with one hand, picking up cleanly and, in one fluid motion, throwing the ball under-arm to score a direct hit at the striker's end. Afridi was half a foot short and Dilshan is pumped 199/9
View dismissal Umar Gul lbw b Perera 0 5 5 0 0 0.00
39.2 this time he's been given! The ball was full and straight once again, Gul tried to play across the line and was hit on the pad plumb in front. Was there another inside edge though? I'll let you know soon. No inside edge. Out. 169/8
Saeed Ajmal not out 8 36 20 0 0 40.00
View dismissal Aizaz Cheema run out (†Sangakkara) 6 12 11 1 0 54.54
46.3 Prasanna to Saeed Ajmal, it's all over! Ajmal backs away and slogs the ball in the air towards long-on, the batsmen run a single, but then decide to chance an overthrow after the ball passes the stumps at the bowler's end. Sangakkara is quick to anticipate this though, and is in position to collect the ball. He hits the stumps direct at the non-striker's end, running out Cheema 210/10
