  Sri Lanka 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal SM Warnapura c Misbah-ul-Haq b Umar Gul 8 23 14 1 0 57.14
4.6 edged and gone! Full outside off, bowled at 136.8 kmph, not quite there to the pitch, goes through with an attempted drive anyway, the ball moves away, takes the outside edge and Misbah at first slip makes no mistake. Pretty straightforward chance, but still well held. Warnapura's aggressive streak costs him his wicket 16/1
View dismissal NT Paranavitana c Shoaib Malik b Umar Gul 21 41 31 4 0 67.74
8.4 what a superb catch!!! Short and wide, cut away powerfully off the back foot, that flew off the bat but Shoaib Malik dived to his left to pull off a blinder, made it look easy there but that was travelling 35/2
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c †Kamran Akmal b Yasir Arafat 104 334 210 8 0 49.52
81.3 outside off stump, Sanagakkara fishes at it and gets a thin edge and Kamran takes it this time. 300/4
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* c †Kamran Akmal b Umar Gul 30 88 61 5 0 49.18
26.3 good length delivery outside the off stump and moving away slightly, Jayawardene coming forward gets the outside edge low down as Akmal dives to his right to take a wonderful catch. 96/3
View dismissal TT Samaraweera run out (†Kamran Akmal/Shoaib Malik) 214 414 338 32 0 63.31
126.2 from Danish Kaneria, run out, utter confusion there, pushed wide of point and Dilshan immediately called for the single but Malik was quick on his feet, Samaraweera was more than halfway down the track and Dilshan, upon realising there was no run rushed back to the non-striker's end, Malik threw it to Kaneria, who fired it in to Akmal, who took off the bails to find the double-centurion miles short of his ground 507/5
View dismissal TM Dilshan run out (Yasir Arafat) 145 270 170 21 0 85.29
145.5 Umar Gul to Muralitharan, run out, short of a good length on the off stump, dropped short of cover and they rush for a single, Malik picks it up cleanly and throws down the stumps at the striker's end to find Dilshan inches short of his ground 572/8
View dismissal HAPW Jayawardene c †Kamran Akmal b Umar Gul 15 43 34 2 0 44.11
135.3 Gul strikes!! Good length outside off and moves away off the pitch, gets half-forward to defend it on the off side, the away movement produces the thinnest of edges and Akmal takes it neatly behind the stumps 542/6
View dismissal T Thushara b Umar Gul 10 38 24 1 0 41.66
143.6 five-for, it was the slower offcutter, bowled on a good length outside off at 129 kmph, he came forward to defend but the ball came back in sharply to bowl him through the gate 566/7
View dismissal M Muralitharan b Mohammad Talha 22 32 16 4 0 137.50
150.6 full and straight and gets the reward this time, Murali has a wild swing at it, though one must say the ball was in the slot, he missed and the middle stump is knocked out. First wicket in Tests for Talha 606/10
View dismissal BAW Mendis b Umar Gul 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
145.6 superb inswinging yorker to the tail-ender, predictably he fails to get his bat down in time and the stumps take a beating. Gul gets his sixth, it's been an excellent effort 572/9
