Shoaib Malik to Sangakkara, 1 run, OUT, A run-out as the batsmen looked to pinch a quick double, Sangakkara turns it towards square leg, Mubarak charges out of his crease believing a second was there for the taking but is is sent back, Misbah-ul-Haq fires a flat throw and Mubarak is nowhere in the scene

Sri Lanka 170/5   KC Sangakkara 47* (65b 4x4)   Shoaib Malik 3.2-0-11-0

Iftikhar Anjum to Sangakkara, OUT, The big wicket of Sangakkara. His innings is sawed off at 49, as Sangakkara decides to upper cut the ball at the last moment, after intially shaping to let the bouncer outside off go, Salman Butt at backward point dives to his right and completes an athletic catch

KC Sangakkara c Salman Butt b Iftikhar Anjum 49 (110m 70b 4x4 0x6) SR: 70.00

Iftikhar Anjum to Thushara, OUT, A footwork-free waft, to a short of length ball just outside off, from Thushara ends up in a simple catch to the keeper, the faintest of edges and Iftikhar is on a hat-trick

T Thushara c †Kamran Akmal b Iftikhar Anjum 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 176/7   MF Maharoof 2* (8b)   Iftikhar Anjum 5.4-1-28-3

Shoaib Malik to Maharoof, OUT, Maharoof's gone, Sri Lanka seem to have developed a knack of losing wickets just as a partnership is developing, Maharoof sweeps Malik in the air but only manages to find Misbah-ul-Haq at the midwicket boundary

MF Maharoof c Misbah-ul-Haq b Shoaib Malik 11 (43m 30b 0x4 0x6) SR: 36.66

Sri Lanka 219/10   M Muralitharan 7* (7b 1x4)   Iftikhar Anjum 8.2-1-42-4
