    39.4 lofts it very very high on the leg side and gives an easy catch! It was pitched up on the stumps, he went down on a knee and lofted it between deep midwicket and long-on, deep midwicket ran to his left to take it comfortably 197/5
    13.5 the first breakthrough and Pathirana gets his first international wicket! It was tossed up outside off, Shehzad went for a big slog sweep against the line and got an inside edge onto his stumps. The intention was there throughout the over and three dot balls did it 59/1
    17.5 anther one for Pathirana, what a sharp catch at short cover! It was pitched up, Hafeez unleashed a powerful drive on the up but the captain catches it nicely with both hands around his chest with fingers pointing upwards. Big blow for Pakistan, big wicket for the debutant 75/2
    23.1 three in three for left-arm spinners! Pretty flat ball around off stump, Babar went back to cut it late but missed it and the ball went on to hit top of off stump 96/3
    36.3 what a delivery, Shoaib looks flummoxed, completely beaten! It was quicker on the off stump and was angling in a bit, Shoaib played for that but the ball seamed away and knocked the off stump over 179/4
    48.4 gets the wicket this time! Slower full ball on the stumps, Rizwan looked to almost sweep that, but it hits him right in front of middle and that is plumb 273/7
    42.1 big appeal for lbw, the finger goes up, but he reviews it! It was almost a yorker on the leg stump, Sarfraz went back to clip it to leg, looks like the ball has pitched outside leg and is going down leg too, will be interesting to see where the impact is. Oh DRS, umpire's call for impact, umpire's call for just hitting the stump and it's out again 217/6

    8.2 he's done it, gets the wicket of Kusal after being walloped around by him! It was short of length, Kusal swat-pulled that straight to Yasir Shah at the backward square leg boundary 92/1
    22.2 Rahat does it again to get the settled batsman! It was angling across Dilshan from back of length, he played along the wrong line and got an inside edge onto his middle stump. Bowled'im! 155/3
    18.3 gone right through to knock the off stump! Movement off the pitch for Rahat as the ball pitched outside off, came in with the angle too as Tharanga didn't move his feet at all and let the ball go through the gap between bad and pad. Rahat pumps his fist 140/2
    23.3 oh, what a horrible mix up, Mathews is stranded on the middle of the pitch, doesn't even try to go back! He pushed the length delivery from off into the covers and took off for the single, Thirimanne said no, but only after a couple of steps by when Mathews was halfway down the pitch. Babar Azam comes forward and throws it flat and back to the keeper for some easy work. Pakistan back in the game? 157/4
    24.2 that's a stunner from Anwar Ali, one more for Rahat! Short ball with room outside off, Thirimanne swung his bat but sent the ball flying towards third man and Anwar replied by running in and flying to his left to grab the ball with both hands! 159/5

    31.2 pinned in front! Milinda goes back when he shouldn't have. To make matters worse, this one doesn't turn. Keeps going on with the arm. The batsman was set up to play with the turn, but there is none on offer. The ball just hurries on, strikes him low on the pads and is plumb in front 196/6
    39.3 he's given it away, charges down again and misses the ball completely to be stumped, doesn't even look back. The ball was outside off this time, he swung his arms and was beaten outside off and Sarfraz did the rest 248/7
    47.1 he's given a catch on the off side! He looked to turn the ball to leg but closed his bat too early and a thick edge ballooned towards point, Shoaib went to his right from cover point and put in a dive to put his fingers under that one 285/8
