View dismissal Kamran Akmal c †Sangakkara b Mathews 45 65 46 7 0 97.82
15.2 similar ball, wide but perhaps a tad bit fuller, and this time it yields a wicket! Akmal stays back and looks to hammer the ball through the off side but its quicker and rises up and he gets a thin nick through to a gleeful Sangakkara 80/2
View dismissal Nasir Jamshed c Samaraweera b Thushara 1 6 3 0 0 33.33
1.3 edged and taken at first slip! Poor shot from Jamshed, feet not moving as he fishes at a full delivery outside off stump, a real sucker of a shot, and Samaraweera gobbles it up in his lap, that was real catching practice 9/1
View dismissal Younis Khan* run out (Thushara) 44 90 59 6 0 74.57
21.2 from Mathews, aha, there's some poor calling and Younis has to go! Slower ball, middle and leg, drifting in, Younis comes forward and on-drives the ball down the ground, he calls for the quick single but its a poor decision as Thushara runs in from mid-on, collects in a flash and knocks down the stumps with Younis well short of the crease 107/4
View dismissal Shoaib Malik c †Sangakkara b Fernando 12 25 18 1 0 66.66
20.3 gone this time! Fernando lands a good short of a length ball around off stump that forces Malik onto the back foot, the ball gets some extra lift and takes the edge 101/3
View dismissal Umar Akmal b Muralitharan 66 93 65 5 2 101.53
41.3 now you take that, says Murali! Umar again waltzes out but this time swings across the line and misses the ball and hears the sound of timber, after which Murali is right up there in his ear with directions to the dressing room and what sightseeing to do in Dambulla 226/7
View dismissal Fawad Alam c & b Mathews 13 50 33 1 0 39.39
32.6 hello, thats a smart catch by Mathews to go with a useless shot from Fawad! Fawad comes out of his crease like a maniac, Mathews sees him and holds back the length and draws a top-edged pull, the ball pops up toward midwicket but Mathews call for it, never taking his eyes off the ball, and then dives full length to pluck a beauty 149/5
View dismissal Shahid Afridi b Muralitharan 32 18 20 5 0 160.00
37.5 gone right through him! Murali holds back the length and slips in a straighter one that beats Afridi as he goes back and pushes down the wrong line, the ball kisses the top of leg stump and then Murali blows sweet nothings to send back Afridi, which he doesn't like and in return tells him the rendezvous point as he storms off 190/6
View dismissal Abdul Razzaq c Jayawardene b Kulasekara 30 39 26 1 2 115.38
46.6 and he's gone, good catch by Mahela at extra cover, it is a fulltoss drilled towards Mahela who dives forward to give Kula his first wicket today 266/8
