    12.3 nicks off! Pakistan have their first second and Tharanga's strength ends up a weakness again. He was completely squared up by a shade of movement to a back of a length delivery. His legs were splayed down the leg side and his hands offered a loose poke outside off. Akmal behind the stumps takes a neat catch 55/2
    4.2 this was quick, straight and Dilshan plays around it! The ump says that's good enough for me, but Sri Lanka go for a review. He's been bowling fuller this innings and the extra pace does the batsman in. Pitching just about in line, hitting just about in line again and the shot was just awful from the opener. Touch too full for that whip and he pays for it 16/1
    13.2 strikes, and it's another left-hander that bites the dust, a big one too! Perhaps a touch more bounce than Sanga thought and the chop through point ends up a lob straight to the man. Pakistan well and truly on top now 55/3
    37.5 he'd run a little too far down looking for that cheeky single behind him, but Akmal leaps up to collect with his right hand and strikes his target. Very timely wicket for Pakistan. 191/5
    17.4 he's holed out on the hook! Irfan's bounce was always formidable and Chandimal took it on and gets a top edge that sinks into the hands of the fielder. How many times has he done that in the last few months? 75/4
    43.1 swipe across the line and his off stump is toppled! Backed away and looked for the slam through midwicket, to assist his team's need for quick runs, and perishes 247/7
    41.2 swings across the line as Wahab goes for the slower ball, dupes the batsman and clatters middle stump. Lovely change of pace 228/6

    19.2 he looks dumbfounded as Sri Lanka celebrate! Thisara is pulling this game around to the home side's corner. Just a little nip back in, but Shehzad was shuffling across and playing around the line of the ball, which sneaks through the gap between bat and pad 94/4
    8.2 this one is angled in and Hafeez misses as he tries to whip it to leg from the crease, given right away, Pakistan review, that struck him pretty high, on the top of the flap, but ball tracker shows it is clipping the stumps, umpire's call stays and Hafeez has to go 39/1
    10.6 innovates, innovates, innovates and finds the lone man at long leg! This was a length ball, that he drags all the way from outside off with a lap sweep that pings off the middle and homes in on Kula's hands 47/2
    15.3 throws his head donw in disgust, then stares up at the heavens as he has to walk back. Lovely catch from Malinga at mid-on after Akmal tries to force the pace with an unwise loft. He did not have the room to free his arms, his shot looked quite awkward and there was no power on it. Malinga runs back and to his right, tumbles and secures a good catch 79/3
    22.3 Sanga! you little beauty! Saw Misbah going down to lap the ball away, but Herath pulled the length back just enough for him to mistime the sweep, getes a little glove and and great footwork from Sanga makes him pull off a good. reflex catch 106/5
    41.6 length ball outside off, Fawad swings off his hips and gets a thick leading edge that sails down the throat of deep third man. Priyanjan holds on to a pressure catch 253/6
