3.2

Aizaz Cheema to Tharanga, OUT, Didn't take Cheema long to bowl that special delivery! All pace, swinging in and honing in on middle stump, Tharanga barely had time to get his bat down, the middle stump is pegged back

WU Tharanga b Aizaz Cheema 12 (13b 2x4 0x6) SR: 92.30

Sri Lanka 30/1   TM Dilshan 13* (7b 2x4)   Aizaz Cheema 0.2-0-1-1

5.3

Saeed Ajmal to Dilshan, OUT, the dreaded top-edge! Dilshan stays at the crease and tries to slog him away, gets a thick top edge that swirls in the air and Misbah takes the sitter at short midwicket

TM Dilshan c Misbah-ul-Haq b Saeed Ajmal 28 (15b 4x4 0x6) SR: 186.66

Sri Lanka 61/2   LD Chandimal 10* (5b 2x4)   Saeed Ajmal 0.3-0-6-1

9.2

Mohammad Hafeez to Sangakkara, OUT, that's a very soft dismissal! Sangakkara didn't know how much power to use on the shot and he ended up tamely chipping it back to the bowler, don't know if the ball stopped on him but he was clearly caught in a moment of indecision

KC Sangakkara c & b Mohammad Hafeez 9 (9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

17.4

Saeed Ajmal to Silva, OUT, tries to sweep, misses it, it rebounds off Umar Akmal's glove, the running was circumspect, Umar threw it to the bowler's end and the batsman was quite a few feet short

LPC Silva run out 4 (8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Sri Lanka 133/5   LD Chandimal 51* (41b 5x4)   Saeed Ajmal 3.4-0-21-1

18.2

Aizaz Cheema to Chandimal, OUT, was a bit of a surprise at first when he gave him out, Cheema slid the ball in to the right-hander, on a yorker length almost, he swished at it, failed to make contact, the bat seemed to hit the ground and the ball clipped th edge of his pad in front of the stumps

LD Chandimal lbw b Aizaz Cheema 56 (44b 6x4 0x6) SR: 127.27

Sri Lanka 138/6   NLTC Perera 0* (1b)   Aizaz Cheema 3.2-0-28-2

18.4

Aizaz Cheema to NLTC Perera, OUT, that's a good catch! Umar Akmal's thrilled with that effort, Perera made room to squirt out a yorker, got a thick outside edge and Akmal swooped to his left and pulled off a good diving catch

NLTC Perera c †Umar Akmal b Aizaz Cheema 0 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 139/7   SL Malinga 1* (1b)   Aizaz Cheema 3.4-0-29-3

18.6

Aizaz Cheema to Malinga, OUT, Timber! That inswinging yorker was a bit too much for Malinga, he made room, exposed the woodwork and Cheema was on target, middle stump is flattened

SL Malinga b Aizaz Cheema 1 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Sri Lanka 140/8   MDK Perera 1* (1b)   Aizaz Cheema 4-0-30-4

Umar Gul to MDK Perera, OUT, another soft dismissal, it's a low full toss on middle and leg, he makes room and clips him down to midwicket, straight to the fielder

MDK Perera c Misbah-ul-Haq b Umar Gul 1 (3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Sri Lanka 141/9   BAW Mendis 0* (0b)   Umar Gul 2.2-0-16-1

19.3

Umar Gul to Fernando, OUT, they've cleaned them all up! Another yorker and it's too much for Fernando, he tries to flick it to the on side and the ball clips his pad and rolls to the stumps

CRD Fernando b Umar Gul 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 141/10   BAW Mendis 0* (0b)   Umar Gul 2.3-0-16-2
