Played at Dubai International Cricket Stadium (neutral venue)
8,9,10,11,12 January 2014 (5-day match)
  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100

Pradeep to Ahmed Shehzad, OUT, full, straight and swinging steeply in and combine that with Shehzad's lack of footwork and Pradeep has the first wicket. He offers a lazy drive on the up but the ball had already swung well enough to miss the front pad and ram into the back one. As plumb as any the umpires would have to make in this game

Ahmed Shehzad lbw b Pradeep 3 (41m 27b 0x4 0x6) SR: 11.11

Pakistan 28/1   Khurram Manzoor 20* (30b 2x4)   N Pradeep 2.3-0-6-1

Pradeep to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, 133 kph, another indipper from Pradeep and he finds success again! Top of off takes a pounding as Hafeez presents a big gap between bat and pad while going for a loose drive. The ball wasn't there for the stroke, even if Pradeep had kept it on a fullish length. He should have been wary of Pradeep's ability to bring the ball back, but he seemed a little too casual there, driving with no feet

Mohammad Hafeez b Pradeep 21 (89m 59b 4x4 0x6) SR: 35.59

Pakistan 78/2   Khurram Manzoor 49* (81b 6x4)   N Pradeep 8.5-2-33-2

Eranga to Younis Khan, OUT, he's been doing that a couple of times but was lucky enough to get some runs off those. Not this time. It was length, it was well wide of off stump. But Younis goes chasing after it and edges through to the keeper, who dives to his right and picks up a smart catch with both hands. Oh, but wait, amid all the celebrations the umpires want to check the no-ball. All is good though and Eranga has a wicket

Younis Khan c †HAPW Jayawardene b Eranga 13 (44m 29b 1x4 0x6) SR: 44.82

Pakistan 107/3   Khurram Manzoor 65* (114b 7x4 1x6)   RMS Eranga 9.1-1-18-1

Eranga to Misbah-ul-Haq, OUT, I stand corrected, Misbah is gone now. Excellent line just outside off lures Misbah into a little defensive push, but all he gets is an outisde edge to the keeper and cue wild celebrations. Straight forward catch to the keeper

Misbah-ul-Haq c †HAPW Jayawardene b Eranga 1 (8m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 14.28

Pakistan 109/4   Khurram Manzoor 66* (119b 7x4 1x6)   RMS Eranga 10.1-2-18-2

Lakmal to Khurram Manzoor, OUT, and now Lakmal has a wicket, all three quicks have been very disciplined today and Manzoor seemed to be in a giving mood as he poked at one outside off stump. He's been suspect on the back foot when he has had to defend, although his cuts were quite strong. And this time Lakmal gets one to move just enough to snare the outside edge

Khurram Manzoor c †HAPW Jayawardene b Lakmal 73 (219m 136b 7x4 1x6) SR: 53.67

Pakistan 118/5   Asad Shafiq 2* (23b)   RAS Lakmal 14.5-4-23-1

Lakmal to Asad Shafiq, OUT, Lakmal has another and it's that man, Kaushal Silva again! Goes for an ill-advised drive on the up and has to perish as the man at short cover dives low to his left and picks up a smart catch

Asad Shafiq c Silva b Lakmal 6 (43m 34b 0x4 0x6) SR: 17.64

Pakistan 127/6   Sarfraz Ahmed 5* (10b)   RAS Lakmal 16.2-5-26-2

Pradeep to Sarfraz Ahmed, OUT, caught behind after being completely squared up! it was full and angling in on middle and leg, which made Sarfraz want to play through midwicket as he closed the face of the bat. But the ball straightens and claims the outside edge to go through to the keeper. Absolute peach that from Pradeep

Sarfraz Ahmed c †HAPW Jayawardene b Pradeep 7 (28m 16b 0x4 0x6) SR: 43.75

Pakistan 129/7   Bilawal Bhatti 0* (14b)   N Pradeep 16.4-2-54-3

Herath to Saeed Ajmal, OUT, Kaushal Silva again, do not hit the ball in his direction, Pakistan! Ajmal looked to turn the flighted ball on leg stump through square leg, but Silva at short leg sticks his right hand out while staying quite low and snares another impressive grab

Saeed Ajmal c Silva b Herath 8 (16m 10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

Pakistan 151/8   Bilawal Bhatti 14* (26b 3x4)   HMRKB Herath 7.2-2-24-1

Herath to Rahat Ali, OUT, and that's two in the over for Herath, but Rahat has gone for the review. Speared in on middle and Rahat plays outside the line. Hit on the edge of front pad and then on the back one. There is no bat involved and the ball would go on with the angle and would crash into middle stump says HawkEye.

Rahat Ali lbw b Herath 0 (4m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 151/9   Bilawal Bhatti 14* (26b 3x4)   HMRKB Herath 8-3-24-2

Herath to Junaid Khan, OUT, there it is, Herath has him and Pakistan are done. But Junaid wants a review. It was the quicker ball and Junaid was playing down the wrong line as this strikes him plumb in front of the stumps, though he was on the front foot. In fact, the Sri lanka fielders were so confident that they were already on their way to the change rooms before the third umpire had made his verdict

Junaid Khan lbw b Herath 2 (24m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

Pakistan 165/10   Bilawal Bhatti 24* (49b 3x4 1x6)   HMRKB Herath 10.5-3-26-3
