Played at Dubai International Cricket Stadium (neutral venue)
14 November 2011 - day/night match (50-over match)

Shahid Afridi to Dilshan, OUT, bowled him! There's the signature Afridi celebration, legs splayed, arms aloft, fingers pointing to the sky. Dilshan once again tried to cut the ball when there was no room. It pitched on off and slid straight through, beating the bat and crashing into the stumps.

TM Dilshan b Shahid Afridi 28 (55m 40b 4x4 0x6) SR: 70.00

Sri Lanka 56/1   WU Tharanga 21* (28b 4x4)   Shahid Afridi 0.2-0-0-1

Abdul Razzaq to Sangakkara, OUT, such a soft dismissal! Sangakkara pushed forward too early to a very slow ball and tried to play down the ground. He ended up popping the easiest of return catches towards Razzaq's left, comfortably taken

KC Sangakkara c & b Abdul Razzaq 5 (12m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 38.46

Sri Lanka 65/2   WU Tharanga 24* (37b 4x4)   Abdul Razzaq 3-0-11-1

Saeed Ajmal to Chandimal, OUT, bowled him! Chandimal, after a slow innings, tried to break free by clearing his front foot towards leg side and trying to mow over midwicket. The straighter ball from Ajmal beat the bat and hit off stump

LD Chandimal b Saeed Ajmal 15 (39m 37b 1x4 0x6) SR: 40.54

Sri Lanka 94/3   WU Tharanga 37* (69b 4x4)   Saeed Ajmal 2.3-0-7-1

Shahid Afridi to Tharanga, OUT, caught at wide long-on! Afridi's struck. Tharanga tried to launch the ball over the midwicket boundary but mis-timed it, Younis Khan settled under a simple catch

WU Tharanga c Younis Khan b Shahid Afridi 77 (175m 120b 8x4 0x6) SR: 64.16

Sri Lanka 179/4   DPMD Jayawardene 36* (39b 4x4)   Shahid Afridi 8.2-1-29-2

Aizaz Cheema to Mathews, OUT, huge appeal for caught behind and Pakistan review umpire Richard Illingworth's not-out decision. It was a short of a length delivery outside off stump, which Mathews tried to steer to third man. There was a definite noise as the ball passed the bat, although there was no obvious deviation. The noise is good enough for the umpires, though. The decision has been overturned and Mathews is on his way

AD Mathews c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Aizaz Cheema 3 (7m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

Sri Lanka 189/5   DPMD Jayawardene 42* (44b 5x4)   Aizaz Cheema 4.5-0-38-1

Saeed Ajmal to Jayawardene, OUT, bowled him! Mahela moved a long way towards the leg side to cut Ajmal through the off side. He ended up being too far away from the ball and had to reach for it. Ajmal's line was straight and he hit middle and off stumps after Mahela did not connect. The 10,000 landmark will have to wait.

DPMD Jayawardene b Saeed Ajmal 50 (89m 57b 5x4 0x6) SR: 87.71

Sri Lanka 210/6   BMAJ Mendis 9* (13b)   Saeed Ajmal 8.1-0-42-2

Saeed Ajmal to Perera, OUT, stumped! Perera comes out of his crease to try and clear the leg side boundary, he gets beaten by a quicker ball that is fired into him, Sarfraz breaks the stumps with the batsman well out of his ground

NLTC Perera st †Sarfraz Ahmed b Saeed Ajmal 13 (10m 12b 0x4 1x6) SR: 108.33

Sri Lanka 233/7   BMAJ Mendis 17* (17b 1x4)   Saeed Ajmal 9.5-0-59-3
