Umar Gul to Paranavitana, OUT, the drop makes no difference, Gul charges in next ball and bowls a brute of an away going delivery, pitches leg and rears up as it swerves across a squared-up Para, outside edge goes screaming high to Younis Khan at second slip, he holds on to the missile, top-class stuff from Gul, truly top-class

NT Paranavitana c Younis Khan b Umar Gul 4 (4m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

Sri Lanka 4/1   TM Dilshan 0* (0b)   Umar Gul 0.5-0-4-1

Saeed Ajmal to Dilshan, OUT, gone! Ajmal gets the breakthrough, and roars, he has got the doosra working from round the stumps all along, and beaten Dilshan's outside edge, this time he finds it as Dilshan pushes with a slightly open face, the edge carries very low to Younis Khan at first slip who takes it neatly

TM Dilshan c Younis Khan b Saeed Ajmal 92 (257m 168b 12x4 1x6) SR: 54.76

Sri Lanka 177/2   KC Sangakkara 77* (190b 7x4 1x6)   Saeed Ajmal 16.1-2-44-1

Junaid Khan to Jayawardene, OUT, Simon Taufel has given Mahela out leg-before, that looked high in real time, Mahela was hit on the right thigh pad as he missed the pull to a short one that was coming in from round the wicket, the ball was still rising as it struck the pad right on the crease, that looked like going over

DPMD Jayawardene lbw b Junaid Khan 39 (145m 108b 2x4 0x6) SR: 36.11

Sri Lanka 261/3   KC Sangakkara 120* (285b 11x4 2x6)   Junaid Khan 20.5-2-69-1

Abdur Rehman to Mathews, OUT, Angelo was possibly playing for lunch, cannot justify his crawl otherwise, but he has edged this one to Adnan in the last over before lunch, some spin and bounce for Rehman as he flights it on a length close to off, Angelo wasn't exactly fully forward, the ball took the outside edge and Adnan snapped it up

AD Mathews c †Adnan Akmal b Abdur Rehman 17 (77m 70b 1x4 0x6) SR: 24.28

Sri Lanka 300/4   KC Sangakkara 140* (333b 12x4 2x6)   Abdur Rehman 31.2-7-74-1

Saeed Ajmal to Sangakkara, OUT, oh dear, Sanga has fallen to the pull, he has been undone by the bounce on this short ball, he had seen the length early and rocked back for the pull, but it gripped, spun, and bounced awkwardly away from him, and he skied it straight up off the toe end of the bat for Younis to settle under it at slip, Sanga cannot believe what has happened, he swore as soon as he saw it flying straight up

KC Sangakkara c Younis Khan b Saeed Ajmal 144 (487m 344b 13x4 2x6) SR: 41.86

Sri Lanka 304/5   JK Silva 0* (10b)   Saeed Ajmal 36.5-3-92-2

Saeed Ajmal to Kulasekara, OUT, even umpire Tarapore has no problems with this one, he sends Kosala back as he is rapped on the pads deep in the crease with a big offbreak, he had almost started to walk away, it was that plumb, spun in a long way, he brought his bat down well outside the line and it was too late

CKB Kulasekara lbw b Saeed Ajmal 15 (44m 28b 2x4 0x6) SR: 53.57

Sri Lanka 330/6   JK Silva 11* (52b 1x4)   Saeed Ajmal 42.3-4-108-3

Umar Gul to Randiv, OUT, another one goes! Gul gets the reverse swing going, hurls it full outside off, it starts moving in sharply, Randiv is moving across and has no chance of getting leg out of the way as the ball crashes low into the pad just beside the bat, looked like taking leg

S Randiv lbw b Umar Gul 1 (6m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

Sri Lanka 331/7   JK Silva 11* (53b 1x4)   Umar Gul 24.4-9-55-2

Junaid Khan to Prasad, OUT, another wicket in the last over of a session, Junaid bowls it outside off on a length, and it moves away now, Prasad is in the mood to have a push at it and gets a faint edge on its way to Adnan, they check whether it is a no-ball, tight call, but Junaid has just a bit of boot behind the landing crease

KTGD Prasad c †Adnan Akmal b Junaid Khan 17 (56m 36b 3x4 0x6) SR: 47.22

Sri Lanka 359/8   JK Silva 21* (90b 2x4)   Junaid Khan 25.5-4-82-2

Saeed Ajmal to Silva, OUT, Silva is gone this time, to the sweep, it is the doosra that takes the top edge and goes towards square leg, Azhar runs to his left from short fine leg and takes a superb sliding catch, he hasn't done anything wrong on the field today

JK Silva c Azhar Ali b Saeed Ajmal 39 (171m 124b 2x4 0x6) SR: 31.45

Sri Lanka 413/9   HMRKB Herath 34* (35b 4x4 1x6)   Saeed Ajmal 51-4-132-4

Umar Gul to Welegedara, OUT, Gul strikes on the third attempt, going full at the stumps all the time, Welegedara backs away once again, no clue what he was hoping to achieve, the ball swerves in late and disturbs off stump

UWMBCA Welegedara b Umar Gul 0 (1m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 413/10   HMRKB Herath 34* (35b 4x4 1x6)   Umar Gul 29.3-10-76-3
