Umar Gul to Jayasuriya, OUT, gone this time!! Deceived by the slower ball.

Shoaib Malik to Sangakkara, OUT, run out, hesitation by Sangakkara and it costs him his wicket, pushed into the off side towards point, he sets off immediately and Dilshan responds but sends him back after he is halfway down the wicket, Afridi begins celebrating even before he takes down the stumps.
