View dismissal NT Paranavitana c Younis Khan b Umar Gul 4 4 5 1 0 80.00
0.5 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 4/1
View dismissal TM Dilshan* c Younis Khan b Saeed Ajmal 92 257 168 12 1 54.76
60.1 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 177/2
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c Younis Khan b Saeed Ajmal 144 487 344 13 2 41.86
116.5 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 304/5
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene lbw b Junaid Khan 39 145 108 2 0 36.11
93.5 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 261/3
View dismissal AD Mathews c †Adnan Akmal b Abdur Rehman 17 77 70 1 0 24.28
113.2 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 300/4
View dismissal JK Silva c Azhar Ali b Saeed Ajmal 39 171 124 2 0 31.45
152.6 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 413/9
View dismissal CKB Kulasekara lbw b Saeed Ajmal 15 44 28 2 0 53.57
128.3 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 330/6
View dismissal S Randiv lbw b Umar Gul 1 6 6 0 0 16.66
129.4 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 331/7
View dismissal KTGD Prasad c †Adnan Akmal b Junaid Khan 17 56 36 3 0 47.22
141.5 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 359/8

View dismissal Azhar Ali b Kulasekara 53 195 164 6 0 32.31
57.1 Kulasekara gets his first Test wicket, bowled'im! Just short of a good length and it nipped back in sharply, landed on the off and zipped in further after reversing, Azhar Ali tried to play that off the back foot, trying to turn it into the leg side, couldn't quite handle the movement and his middle stump was pegged back, Kulasekara opens his Test account 133/3

90.1 He's done the trick with the new ball! Similar delivery to the one that knocked off Azhar Ali, just a different bowler with a different bowling hand, landed around the off stump, nipped back in sharply and Younis was caught on the crease and played late on that one, tried to defend him off the back foot but was beaten through the gate and the stumps were knocked back! 233/4

135.2 Sri Lanka get rid of Misbah, finally! Went for the slog-sweep, was aiming at midwicket, but got a top edge, it appeared to hold its line that ball, Dilshan was at backward short leg and he judged it well, diving to his left and holding it close to chest to ensure it didn't pop out 336/9

View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez run out (sub [HDRL Thirimanne]) 13 20 20 2 0 65.00
4.6 from Welegedara, Thirimanne hits the stumps and Hafeez is gone! Another short ball outside off and coming in, Hafeez works it off the back foot wide of midwicket, and there surely was a single there. For some reason, Hafeez was hesitant to get going. Thirimanne got to the ball quickly and hurled the stumps down at the bowler's end, with Hafeez a foot or so out. The replays suggest Hafeez expected the ball to go further away, but the outfield is heavy now after all the rain. 20/1
View dismissal Taufeeq Umar c Sangakkara b Randiv 39 144 121 4 0 32.23
41.1 oh well, don't expect a boring finish when Pakistan are involved. Taufeeq has given Randiv an Eid gift, and it happens to be his wicket. Short ball landed well outside off and turning away, it was so wide of Randiv that there was no way he could have been in control of the cut. And that's exactly what happened. He lobs it gently to the right of point, lovely bit of catching practice. 77/4
View dismissal Azhar Ali lbw b Herath 7 27 25 1 0 28.00
13.2 Is that lbw? Is that caught? One way or the other, it is out. Stunning ball from Herath, and Sri Lanka are on the job now. Some needless defensiveness from Pak has contributed to the pressure, and this wicket. SL could place as many fielders as they wanted in catching positions and attack. This one from Herath curved in from round the stumps, landed on leg and turned away sharply. Azhar was well back on the crease, looking to turn it square, but missed. The ball kissed the right pad in front of off, en route Mahela's hands at slip. He appealed for the catch first, and then pointed to the batsman to show he was appealing for the lbw too, as did all his team-mates. The umpire agreed. 30/2
