Pathan to Jayawardene, OUT, lbw! Mahela isn't happy but he has to go, he got down on one knee and tried to sweep, he missed and got hit by a straight ball. The doubt was whether the impact was outside the line of off stump. The ball hit the under side of the thigh guard and looked in line. There was glove on the ball, though, that's why Mahela was unhappy. Aleem Dar gets one wrong

DPMD Jayawardene lbw b Pathan 25 (27b 5x4 0x6) SR: 92.59
