Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150  | Overs 151-200

4.6

Umar Gul to Warnapura, OUT, edged and gone! Full outside off, bowled at 136.8 kmph, not quite there to the pitch, goes through with an attempted drive anyway, the ball moves away, takes the outside edge and Misbah at first slip makes no mistake. Pretty straightforward chance, but still well held. Warnapura's aggressive streak costs him his wicket

SM Warnapura c Misbah-ul-Haq b Umar Gul 8 (23m 14b 1x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

Sri Lanka 16/1   NT Paranavitana 8* (16b 1x4)   Umar Gul 3-1-11-1

8.4

Umar Gul to Paranavitana, OUT, what a superb catch!!! Short and wide, cut away powerfully off the back foot, that flew off the bat but Shoaib Malik dived to his left to pull off a blinder, made it look easy there but that was travelling

NT Paranavitana c Shoaib Malik b Umar Gul 21 (41m 31b 4x4 0x6) SR: 67.74

Sri Lanka 35/2   KC Sangakkara 6* (7b)   Umar Gul 4.4-1-18-2

26.3

Umar Gul to DPMD Jayawardene, OUT, good length delivery outside the off stump and moving away slightly, Jayawardene coming forward gets the outside edge low down as Akmal dives to his right to take a wonderful catch.

DPMD Jayawardene c †Kamran Akmal b Umar Gul 30 (88m 61b 5x4 0x6) SR: 49.18

Sri Lanka 96/3   KC Sangakkara 32* (57b 4x4)   Umar Gul 8.3-2-32-3

81.3

Yasir Arafat to Sangakkara, OUT, outside off stump, Sanagakkara fishes at it and gets a thin edge and Kamran takes it this time.

KC Sangakkara c †Kamran Akmal b Yasir Arafat 104 (334m 210b 8x4 0x6) SR: 49.52

Sri Lanka 300/4   TT Samaraweera 122* (183b 17x4)   Yasir Arafat 10.3-2-41-1

126.2

Danish Kaneria to Samaraweera, OUT, run out, utter confusion there, pushed wide of point and Dilshan immediately called for the single but Malik was quick on his feet, Samaraweera was more than halfway down the track and Dilshan, upon realising there was no run rushed back to the non-striker's end, Malik threw it to Kaneria, who fired it in to Akmal, who took off the bails to find the double-centurion miles short of his ground

TT Samaraweera run out 214 (414m 338b 32x4 0x6) SR: 63.31

Sri Lanka 507/5   TM Dilshan 107* (117b 15x4)   Danish Kaneria 36.2-3-145-0

135.3

Umar Gul to HAPW Jayawardene, OUT, Gul strikes!! Good length outside off and moves away off the pitch, gets half-forward to defend it on the off side, the away movement produces the thinnest of edges and Akmal takes it neatly behind the stumps

HAPW Jayawardene c †Kamran Akmal b Umar Gul 15 (43m 34b 2x4 0x6) SR: 44.11

Sri Lanka 542/6   TM Dilshan 127* (138b 19x4)   Umar Gul 29.3-2-108-4

143.6

Umar Gul to Thushara, OUT, five-for, it was the slower offcutter, bowled on a good length outside off at 129 kmph, he came forward to defend but the ball came back in sharply to bowl him through the gate

T Thushara b Umar Gul 10 (38m 24b 1x4 0x6) SR: 41.66

Sri Lanka 566/7   TM Dilshan 141* (165b 21x4)   Umar Gul 34-2-122-5

145.5

Umar Gul to Muralitharan, OUT, run out, short of a good length on the off stump, dropped short of cover and they rush for a single, Malik picks it up cleanly and throws down the stumps at the striker's end to find Dilshan inches short of his ground

TM Dilshan run out 145 (270m 170b 21x4 0x6) SR: 85.29

Sri Lanka 572/8   M Muralitharan 2* (6b)   Umar Gul 34.5-2-125-5

145.6

Umar Gul to Mendis, OUT, superb inswinging yorker to the tail-ender, predictably he fails to get his bat down in time and the stumps take a beating. Gul gets his sixth, it's been an excellent effort

BAW Mendis b Umar Gul 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 572/9   M Muralitharan 2* (6b)   Umar Gul 35-2-125-6

150.6

Mohammad Talha to Muralitharan, OUT, full and straight and gets the reward this time, Murali has a wild swing at it, though one must say the ball was in the slot, he missed and the middle stump is knocked out. First wicket in Tests for Talha

M Muralitharan b Mohammad Talha 22 (32m 16b 4x4 0x6) SR: 137.50

Sri Lanka 606/10   CRD Fernando 14* (20b 2x4)   Mohammad Talha 17-0-88-1
