View dismissal Salman Butt run out (Kapugedera/Bandara) 34 67 3 0 50.74
20.4 Bandara to Mohammad Yousuf, Now that's reckless. Yousuf pushes to the leg side and thinks of a single, Butt is already halfway down the track and Kapugedera, at point, swoops in and lets rip a fierce throw. It isn't accurate but Bandara manages to snatch it clean and whip off the bails. Butt is just short of his crease and the third umpire flashes the red light. 88/3
View dismissal Imran Nazir run out (Jayasuriya/Malinga) 38 24 6 1 158.33
9.1 from Malinga, Afridi, the bye-runner, runs out Nazir! Nazir drives on the up through cover, he didn't time that well enough and Jayasuriya pulled it in just inside the fence, Afridi set off for the third run but Jayasuriya's flat throw to Malinga found him terribly short of his ground, poor runnng for there was never a third in it 53/1
View dismissal Yasir Hameed lbw b Bandara 10 29 1 0 34.48
18.5 That's nailed him. Tossed up beautifully by the legspinner, pitches on leg and spins back, Hameed gets his front foot forward and pushes tamely but is struck on the front pad. Loud appeal and though he's well forward, umpire Mark benson lifts the finger straight away. He was no doubt well forward but that ball was going on to strike off. Bandara gets his reward for persisting with flight. Now then, is there a twist in store? 84/2
View dismissal Mohammad Yousuf b Maharoof 12 25 1 0 48.00
25.5 What a jaffa! Maharoof unleashes a special. Is this Abu Dhabi or is this Lord's? Short of a length, pitched on middle, cutting away viciously and rattling off stump. Yousuf drives but misses it all ends up and can only look back in anguish. That was one lethal blow and Pakistan slipping here 105/4
View dismissal Shoaib Malik* run out (Tharanga/†HAPW Jayawardene) 11 27 0 0 40.74
31.3 from Jayasuriya, That's such a bizzarre way to get out. Sweeps wonderfully past short fine leg and watches as the ball races away towards the fence, Upul Tharanga dives full length and pulls off a fine save, the batsmen complete two and call for the third but there's a misunderstanding and Malik is standed halfway down, the ball is fired into the wicketkeeper and the simplest of run-outs completed. The umpires check if it's a four or not but Tharanga's save is deemed fine, Malik has to go 137/5
