    22.2 caught right at the margins of the boundary! Tossed up by Prasanna, Sharjeel stayed at the crease and looked to loft him over long-on, it looked like it would carry over the rope but Senanayake stood on the edge and caught it just inches from the rope, judged that well and importantly maintained his balance 118/2
    6.2 Shehzad has been given out lbw and he wants it reviewed. But the batsman took ages to signal it to the umpire and he has to go because he was timed out! Bowled from slightly wide of the crease and angles the ball inwards, Shehzad shuffled across and exposed his leg stump, struck a bit high on the pads, you could see the leg stump and that's what had him in trouble, Hawk Eye shows that hitting the top of middle, guess it wouldn't have been overturned anyway 35/1
    49.4 a fine knock comes to an end! Gets a length ball and makes room and miscues it to midwicket, it was a tired hoick, easy one for the fielder 320/5
    43.6 a run-out cuts short such an exciting innings from the young man! Hafeez tucks it with the turn to deep midwicket, takes the first run quickly but Maqsood was very keen on the second, Hafeez was watching the fielder and told Maqsood to scamper back but it was too late, throw was to the keeper 258/3
    47.4 temporary relief for SL! Thisara comes round the wicket and fires it full on the off stump, Afridi walks across his stumps trying to paddle it down to fine leg, the ball goes past his left leg and hits the base of the off stump 301/4

    22.4 Kusal's been given out lbw and he wants to review it. From round the wicket, pitches on middle and leg and straightens, the turn squared him up and struck him on the thigh pad, he was playing back and that led to his undoing, Hawk Eye says that was clipping the top of middle 113/2
    12.5 Dilshan fails to get his placement right two balls in a row but this time he pays the price! Good field placement by the captain to have a deep square leg, it was short and Dilshan couldn't resist the pull, hits it flat and quick to Hafeez who takes a few paces back and takes the catch, falls over with the momentum 66/1
    25.2 Afridi's got the Big Fish! And he ditched his trademark 'X' celebration and instead took off with his arm outstretched. It was wide outside off and Sanga chased it, thick outside edge and Akmal fumbled and took it on the second attempt. Afridi's celebration was a bit unusual too 127/3
    39.6 a direct hit by Ajmal! Turned it to the on side and set off for a very risky single, Ajmal took off to his right, gathered it and in one motion took aim at his own end, had just one stump to aim at and boy was he accurate! Chandimal has to go 214/5
    29.4 that's a sharp catch! Tossed up and Thirimanne gets on his knee for the slog, he timed it well but Maqsood jogs to his right, leaps and takes the catch. It looked like Maqsood was standing a few yards much in front of the rope but he adjusted 141/4
    40.4 that was a soft dismissal! Junaid fires a length ball from round the wicket, Mathews made room to slap it away but the ball hits the splice of the bat and the top edge swirls to mid-off 216/6
    41.2 spooned it to cover! Length ball from Bhatti outside off, Thisara looks to punch it away over cover but failed to place it properly 221/7
    49.4 the tension's over and Pakistan have won! Junaid fired this one full on the off stump, Prasanna made room looking to scoop it over the off side but it dipped and landed safely on Sharjeel's palms at mid-off 311/10
    48.5 and the 12th man Anwar Ali takes it on the second attempt! Senanayake made room and scooped it over cover, didn't time it well, Anwar ran forward from sweeper cover, had it covered and the ball popped out, he had the presence of mind to stick his right hand out, turn around and take the catch, phew! 308/8
    49.1 and we have a run out off the first ball! Junaid fires a length ball and Prasanna swings and mistimes it to deep midwicket, Malinga sets off for the second to get off strike but his partner is not interested seeing Bhatti's accurate throw to Akmal, Malinga turns around but it's too late 310/9
