View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* lbw b Umar Gul 3 31 20 0 0 15.00
6.1 No need for replays here. Jayawardene is gone lbw. Gul has been bowling this one-off inducker every over. This one starts around the sixth-stump line, beats Jayawardene's inside edge, and hits him in front of middle and leg. No forward stride, so hardly any way for the ball to travel. Would have hit leg stump 12/2
View dismissal TM Dilshan c Saeed Ajmal b Umar Gul 5 18 9 0 0 55.55
4.1 Dilshan can keep his appointment. This is the fifth or sixth attempt he has tried to get out. This time he succeeds, though. Short of a length, on the stumps, Dilshan stays in the crease, and wants to send it to Kandy. Nowhere near the pitch of it, and expectedly skies it up for Ajmal at mid-on. As I said, Twenty20s are over 8/1
View dismissal KC Sangakkara lbw b Mohammad Sami 9 46 31 1 0 29.03
12.4 here's the good Sami. Full outswinger, 137ks, near yorker, and hits his toe in front of leg. Umpire Reifell gives him. Sanga is not happy at all. He reckons this is headed down leg. A touch-and-go decision: not big stride down the wicket, hit full in front of leg, anybody's guess after that 40/4
View dismissal LD Chandimal b Umar Gul 0 12 9 0 0 0.00
8.4 Timber. Nothing shot really. Short of a length, no room, and he wants to punch it. The seam movement back into him, and the extra bounce do for him. Dragged on 23/3
View dismissal WU Tharanga b Mohammad Hafeez 10 51 27 1 0 37.03
19.2 Tharanga has missed this by a country mile. Charges at Hafeez, who bowls full and straight. Tharanga swings around the off-stump line, and this takes out the middle stump 56/6
View dismissal AD Mathews c Misbah-ul-Haq b Mohammad Sami 0 9 5 0 0 0.00
14.3 Sami is on fire here. Good outswinger. Full delivery, on off, holds its line, Mathews plays a loose drive from the back foot, edges it low and flat, and Misbah collects it clean as a whistle at first slip 41/5
HDRL Thirimanne not out 42 106 73 3 0 57.53
View dismissal NLTC Perera lbw b Mohammad Hafeez 17 29 33 1 0 51.51
27.3 lovely follow-up delivery. After the big sharp offbreak, he follows with the straighter delivery. Pitched outside off, angling in, hits him in front of off, would have hit the stumps, and he has been given out. Except that he also got a big inside edge before the ball hit the pad. Perera lets out a cry, but has to walk off 81/7
View dismissal KMDN Kulasekara c Sohail Tanvir b Mohammad Sami 18 53 46 0 0 39.13
41.4 they finally catch one. Sami refuses to give them driving length. Stays back of a length, and Kula just swings at it, hoping for the best. Ends up skying it to Tanvir at third man, who catches it knee-high 131/8

View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez st †Sangakkara b Herath 37 95 57 5 1 64.91
19.5 beautifully bowled. Slower through the air, 78.5ks, the ball dips on him, and turns away after pitching. Hafeez is drawn forward, but is not quite to the pitch of the ball. The back foot is dragged out as the ball turns past the bat. He tries to get it back, but he has only reached the line when Sanga stumps him. Quite a few replays seen, but there is no part of the foot behind the line when the bails are off 78/3
View dismissal Azhar Ali c †Sangakkara b Malinga 3 10 2 0 0 150.00
2.1 Malinga strikes. That's the start Sri Lanka needed. Short of driving lenght, just outside off, Ali pushes at it away from the body. Nothing shot really. even if he had middled it, he wouldn't got a run. All he manages is a thin edge, and Sanga doesn't drop it 11/1
View dismissal Younis Khan b Kulasekara 5 23 16 1 0 31.25
7.1 bowled'im. The big inswinger again. Short of a length, just outside off, Younis pushes forward, but has clearly been surprised by the amount of movement. The ball beats the bat, hits him high on the pad, and then the top of the off stump. Kula is thrilled, SL are still alive 27/2
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq* run out (Mathews/†Sangakkara) 30 118 79 4 0 37.97
33.2 from Herath, Oh we have a Misbah moment here. International cricket will be poorer without Misbah. He jumps out of the crease, gets to the pitch of the ball, drives it solidly to mid-off, wants a single, but Akmal sends him back because it has been hit straight to fielder. Caught well short there 133/4
