149.1 Mohammad Hafeez to Sangakkara, and after all that blocking and turning down singles, Sanga's latest attempt to keep the strike is in vain, he drives this full one hard wide of long off, Gul runs across and lets the throw rip, Sanga wants the second, Herath had little chance of making it back if the throw was on target, Hafeez collects it and takes the bails off, Herath is comfortably short 455/9

View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez* lbw b Randiv 20 85 56 3 0 35.71
20.3 this was coming, he was playing from the crease to the flighted fullish deliveries, this one looked like the topspinner, did not turn much, Hafeez pushed inside the line and the ball crashed into the pads, plumb, umpire Gould gives it after a long thought 43/3
View dismissal Taufeeq Umar lbw b Kulasekara 9 19 15 2 0 60.00
4.2 that will usually go in the bowler's favour, not offering a stroke, looked to have pitched just in line with leg stump, going across and striking the pad high as Taufeeq shoulders arms, height could have been an issue as well, but he spoiled his case by not offering a stroke, height definitely an issue on replays, he was struck above the knee roll, and the ball was still climbing 17/1
View dismissal Azhar Ali c †HAPW Jayawardene b Kulasekara 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
4.3 Kula is enjoying his return to Test cricket, Pakistan in disarray, Azhar Ali, the impressive Azhar Ali, who fought hard during the ODIs, even carried his bat, lasts a ball, the away seam movement does him in, back of a length, bounces, shapes away to take the edge to the keeper 17/2
View dismissal Younis Khan lbw b Herath 29 112 91 3 0 31.86
33.5 that's it, that's the big wicket, rapped on the pad, and given right away by umpire Davis, the one that slides in with the angle, from wide of the crease, how long can you be precise in defending, with many turning and some, like this one, not turning, Younis far forward, pushing outside the line for the turn, and hit in front of middle, middle and leg, looked to be going on for leg stump, but would you believe it, replays show an inside edge, that is why Younis Khan took so long in starting to walk back, I have lost count of the number of times Pakistan have been done in by the umpires in this Test 65/6
View dismissal Saeed Ajmal c Paranavitana b Randiv 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
20.4 dear me, Pakistan are wobbling, Randiv has two in two, Ajmal jabbing at an offbreak that bounced from a length, did not seem to have taken any bat as it looped up off the body to short leg, Ajmal took a few steps towards the leg side, probably that clinched it for the umpire, who upheld the appeal, Pakistan's rough game with the umpiring continues 43/4
View dismissal Asad Shafiq c †HAPW Jayawardene b Herath 0 5 6 0 0 0.00
21.6 excellent delivery, and another one falls, Prasanna went up immediately as he took the ball, draws him forward with flight on middle, and turns just enough past the bat, there was a sound, have to wait for more replays to confirm, yes, there was an edge, a very thin one 44/5
View dismissal Mohammad Ayub lbw b Herath 25 122 103 2 0 24.27
53.5 another appeal for leg before, and umpire Davis upholds this one to end Ayub's patient knock, did not turn this one, Ayub was playing for it as he came forward, the flighted delivery pitched in line with leg stump, and went straight on from over the stumps to strike him in front of middle and leg, height could have been the only factor, struck on the knee roll with a forward stride, Ayub's not a tall man, not much doubt 98/9
View dismissal Adnan Akmal run out (Kulasekara/Herath) 9 50 25 0 0 36.00
45.1 from Herath, oh boy, not a run out, Pakistan, total confusion, Adnan paddles from around off stump, takes the single wide of fine leg, it is Adnan's call to go for the second, Ayub is hesitant, Adnan is running back hard though, he hesitates momentarily after running halfway up the pitch, Ayub takes a step out belatedly, then stops and returns, Adnan has resumed running, they are stranded at the same end, the throw is at the bowler's end, Adnan walks off in a huff 88/7

50.1 that has to be close, and he is given, Randiv floating it up from round the stumps, fullish, Rehman pushing forward for the turn, this one carries straight in with the angle, strikes him low in front of off and middle, no doubt about this one, for once 94/8

View dismissal NT Paranavitana lbw b Saeed Ajmal 25 92 65 0 2 38.46
19.6 he's been given this time, Para falling second time in the match after stepping out to Ajmal, was trying to push away what he thought was an offbreak, which is what can explain his bat hanging at an angle about two feet away from the eventual line of the ball as it angled in to him from a length from round the stumps, and caught him on the back leg, hit marginally outside the line of off stump, but no way that can be construed as offering a stroke 81/1

4.6 and Kulasekara gets through eventually, he has been keeping it up around that off stump, moving many in, some away, it is not the movement that gets Hafeez this time, there was none, he drives a pitched up widish straight ball away from the body, Mahela accepts the thick edge low at slip gleefully 8/1

72.6 Herath has produced the breakthrough, all it needed was one mistake, there has been slow turn, but Herath got this one to spin quicker, and bounce outside off, Shafiq could have left it alone, it was spinning away from him, probably the fullish length and angle into him makes him go for it, he pushes, and Mahela moves to his left at slip to take the outside edge, not in control initially, but he has his body behind the ball, it grazed the keeper's gloves on its way, and changed direction slightly, but Mahela had it covered 189/5
