View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* c Shoaib Malik b Sohail Tanvir 2 2 3 0 0 66.66
0.3 Tanvir strikes in the first over, Mahela, looking to work a length ball to leg after taking a couple of steps out, has spooned it high up in the air off a leading edge instead, and Shoaib Malik manages to hold onto the steepler as he tumbles to the ground at cover, he had to shield his eyes initially from the floodlights as he steadied himself for the take 2/1
View dismissal TM Dilshan c Umar Gul b Sohail Tanvir 5 13 8 0 0 62.50
2.3 Tanvir is smiling, it was a rather poor line, fullish and down the leg side, but Dilshan has flicked it straight to fine leg, he saw the line and went after it powerfully, but picked the man in the deep 11/2
View dismissal KC Sangakkara b Sohail Tanvir 19 22 12 3 0 158.33
4.4 Tanvir's productive night continues, now he has Sanga chopping a drive on to his stumps, Sanga walks back in disappointment, he went for a big cover drive, there was some width available off the pitched up ball, but all he managed was a big inside edge 31/3
View dismissal LD Chandimal b Mohammad Sami 10 24 15 0 0 66.66
7.2 Sami strikes, Chandimal's heave misses, and Sri Lanka are in trouble now, Chandimal saw the length ball angled in, and decided to slog wildly over midwicket, but missed 39/4
View dismissal AD Mathews b Saeed Ajmal 9 31 25 0 0 36.00
12.5 it is not easy to hit Ajmal anytime, even harder to go after him under the pressure of T20, Angelo tries to slog with the turn, this one is bowled slightly slower, and strikes the stumps after going past Angelo's swipe 65/5
View dismissal HDRL Thirimanne c Umar Gul b Saeed Ajmal 30 32 25 5 0 120.00
16.2 connects well with the reverse sweep but hits it straight to Gul at short third man, he takes a sharp catch as he tumbles to the ground, it was a quick doosra from Ajmal just outside off 89/7
View dismissal KS Lokuarachchi run out (†Shakeel Ansar) 11 11 10 1 0 110.00
16.1 from Saeed Ajmal, he's not collected cleanly, but now Ansar hits the stumps with an underarm lob, they were going for a sharp single after a soft push on the off side, batsman dived at the other end, the lower end of his bat was in the air, and he was consequently out of the crease marginally, as the bails came off 89/6

View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez* c Dilshan b Kulasekara 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
0.1 captain is gone first ball, nothing much in the delivery, widish length ball, he looks to punch-guide it from the crease but finds backward point 0/1
View dismissal Ahmed Shehzad b Senanayake 36 80 42 3 1 85.71

View dismissal Shakeel Ansar c Dilshan b Kulasekara 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
0.2 Dilshan takes another one at backward point, two in two, Ansar has a forgettable debut, could not control the punch-steer again off the widish length ball, a bit of a loose waft in the end, Dilshan pouching another low take at backward point 0/2
View dismissal Khalid Latif c †Sangakkara b Mathews 3 19 12 0 0 25.00
3.6 this time there is no doubt, Sanga has pulled off a stunner diving to his right, Latif going for a big drive to a full one that moved away a bit, Mahela appeals, for the fun of it, even as Sanga tumbles down with the ball safe in his gloves 12/3
View dismissal Shoaib Malik c Perera b Mathews 9 24 16 0 0 56.25
9.2 that is an outstanding catch, just incredible, Perera running across from third man, diving full-length to his right and taking the slash off a wide one from Malik even as he is parallel to the ground in the air 46/4
View dismissal Umar Akmal c Kulasekara b Malinga 12 14 10 2 0 120.00
12.2 Akmal has given it away, he went to pull Malinga, the ball got big on him and Kula took the top edge safely at mid off after taking some time to judge it and set himself up 68/5

13.1 he's gone second ball, the offspinner has struck, big celebrations, Afridi charged out immediately to a flighted ball, had a huge heave, and the thick edge was taken by a leaping short third man 70/6
View dismissal Sohail Tanvir run out (Dilshan/†Sangakkara) 1 2 1 0 0 100.00
13.3 Senanayake to Ahmed Shehzad, nothing working for Pakistan, they find new ways to get out, confusion this time, Shehzad wanted the single as he worked it square on leg, Tanvir was not so keen, Shehzad had almost reached the other end before Tanvir crossed over to sacrifice his wicket 71/7
View dismissal Umar Gul c Thirimanne b Malinga 5 12 10 0 0 50.00
16.2 deep midwicket almost overran the ball as he came in from the rope but then stopped and took the ball as it came down, Gul had tried to push at the slower one but hit it high in the air 87/9
