View dismissal FDM Karunaratne c Younis Khan b Abdur Rehman 34 121 93 2 1 36.55
27.4 52.5 mph, the flight does him in and Rehman has his first wicket! Lunges forward and looks to drive through the covers, but he does not reach the pitch. Younis Khan dives low to his left to pick up a sharp catch at first slip. The Lunch jinx is at it again 65/2
View dismissal JK Silva c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Mohammad Talha 17 73 46 1 0 36.95
14.6 86.4 mph, very, very late decision but umpire Kettleborough has given him. Silva nicks off and he has to walk back. Another excellent delivery from Talha as he pitches it just back of a length outside off stump. It straightens a touch even as Silva was pushing away from his body. The outside edge results and it's an easy pouch for the keeper 31/1
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c Khurram Manzoor b Junaid Khan 52 138 103 5 0 50.48
50.5 81.7 mph, he's thrown it away! The softest of dismissals as he flicks an innocuous delivery straight to midwicket. Misbah has employed that man to good effect in strangling Sanga for runs and now he holds on to a neat catch around hip-high to get rid of him. Fullish ball angled in at his pads gets the wicket, who would have thought? 125/3
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene c Azhar Ali b Saeed Ajmal 47 136 108 5 2 43.51
61.6 57.5 mph, he's got his man! Extracts a bit of turn and bounce and as Mahela went back to tickle it around the corner, the inside edge is taken and lobs to short leg. He departs 13 short of 11000. Oops 159/4
View dismissal LD Chandimal c Asad Shafiq b Saeed Ajmal 11 60 42 1 0 26.19
65.2 54.4 mph, and Ajmal has another! Hasn't read the doosra as he looks to hoick it over the leg side. The leading edge goes straight up and mid-on runs back to pick up a relatively easy catch. Ajmal is overjoyed. 166/5
View dismissal AD Mathews* c Ahmed Shehzad b Junaid Khan 91 356 256 5 1 35.54
148.3 80.7 mph, he's fallen in the 90s again! Soft dismissal as he slices it straight to deep point. It was full, it was wide and it reverse away as well. Mathews should not have played at that and he perishes 351/7
View dismissal HAPW Jayawardene c Junaid Khan b Mohammad Talha 35 128 77 2 0 45.45
95.1 84.0 mph, no need for DRS here as Prasanna holes out to long leg. Excellent bouncer, around head-high lures him to go for the hook despite the man being positioned there. And he pays for that error in judgment with his wicket as Junaid Khan picks up a smart catch above his chest 239/6
View dismissal MDK Perera c Junaid Khan b Mohammad Talha 95 302 247 12 2 38.46
169.3 83.4 mph, he won't get a ton on debut! Hooks it to long leg and he has to walk off. Dug in short and Talha had cramped him for room. He is lured into the shot and gets a top edge that is swallowed by Junaid Khan. A very gritty innings reaches it's end but Perera will know, playing in his first Test, he's put his side firmly on top here 423/9
View dismissal HMRKB Herath lbw b Junaid Khan 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
148.4 84.1 mph, finally a leg before for Pakistan and Junaid has two in two! Went around the wicket and the reverse swing tailing into him is enough to beat his defensive push from the crease. Was a little late on the shot as well. Herath goes for a review, but this time umpire's call benefits Pakistan 351/8

View dismissal Khurram Manzoor c †HAPW Jayawardene b Eranga 52 185 125 4 0 41.60
48.3 84.5 mph, he's tickled it down the leg side and straight into the keeper's gloves, but Manzoor confers with his partner and goes for the review. He thought it had gone off the pad but wasn't quite as sure as he should have been to go for a second opinion. And yep, there is a bit of inside edge and Manzoor has to depart. Still doesn't look too convinced though, although being strangled down the leg side is not the most flattering of dismissals, if such a thing exists 114/1
View dismissal Ahmed Shehzad b Herath 147 333 275 12 1 53.45
81.6 49.7 mph, he's reverse swept it straight to his stumps! It was full and seeking the footmarks. He'd played the same shot to a very similar ball earlier in the over and got away with it. This time he gets a bottom edge and the ball dribbles onto the stumps. Shehzad is stunned. Holds his ground for a very long time as the umpires converse and finally give him out 245/4
View dismissal Azhar Ali c Mathews b Perera 8 43 27 0 0 29.62
57.6 47.8 mph, there's his first Test wicket and Perera is chuffed! But Pakistan have other plans. Azhar Ali has gone for the review. It was very full and just outside off. Azhar was looking to drive through the covers but gets the edge straight trough to Mathews at slip. Just enough drift away to dupe the batsman.That's a wasted one and Pakistan have lost both their reviews 149/2
View dismissal Younis Khan c †HAPW Jayawardene b Herath 17 50 31 1 0 54.83
69.6 48.5 mph, he's walked and another one bites the dust down the leg side. Sharp take by Prasanna behind the stumps as this was full and angled in at Younis. He was looking to tickle it away and pick up a few runs through fine leg, but doesn't quite get enough bat on it. So he won't go wicketless in his 50th Test. Good take from Prasanna as he stayed low and moved to his left 189/3
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq* c Chandimal b Herath 63 166 113 1 3 55.75
107.1 49.7 mph, Misbah tries the slog sweep again, this time not timed, gets it high on the bat, Chandimal at wide long on gets under that and ends a typical captains innings. A partnership of 25 comes to an end with the captain controlling it so well, Sri Lanka was very patient with him, waited for the mistake, and eventually got it 325/9
View dismissal Asad Shafiq lbw b Eranga 18 43 45 1 0 40.00
92.1 82.2 mph, struck on the pads as this was ducking in after pitching. On the knee-roll as he was looking to flick across the line. Touch late on it too. He was standing outside the crease and there is no bat involved and HawkEye says the ball would have just clipped leg stump so he has to go. Better review, just bad luck for Pakistan 274/5
View dismissal Sarfraz Ahmed c †HAPW Jayawardene b Herath 5 13 7 0 0 71.42
95.3 48.3 mph, he's nicked it to the keeper! Gets a bit of turn this time as he pitches this full and a bit outside off stump. Sarfraz lunges forward and gets a thick outside edge and Prasanna, who has been so good behind the stumps this series, picks up another catch. And that is stumps 291/6

5.1 88.1 mph, bowled him! Short ball, goes on the pull from just outside off but it was a touch too quick. Gets the bottom edge which deflects onto the stumps. Ball seemed to hurry onto him, did not get up as high as expected, bat at an angle and the edge does the rest 13/1

27.6 57.9 mph, unplayable! Misbah got on in the last Test and Rehman returns the favour on behalf of his captain. Flighted and angled in on middle but it jags away rather alarmingly to beat the outside edge and crash into off stump.

67.6 59.1 mph, he's outta here! Azhar Ali picks up a terrific catch low to his right at short leg. Ajmal lures the inside edge onto pad with a lovely flighted ball on off stump. It's deflected off the front pad and that allows short leg to get his hands under it. 127/5

38.4 83.8 mph, cleaned him up! Beats him all ends up with a big incutter. Gap between bat and pad as he was looking to drive on the up. More than enough for the reverse swinging ball to sneak through and shatter the stumps. Poor defensive technique and was actually a little late on the shot 89/4

View wicket AD Mathews 11 0 48 1 4.36 29 2 0
21.5 to Younis Khan, 78.2 mph, chainsaw from Angelo as he pulls this straight to midwicket. Wanted to go over the top of Sanga as this was short and asking to be pulled. Younis got the shot right, but the placement all wrong. Soft dismissal and he knows it 97/3
