    8.6 called it and he's walking. Bouncer in line with the leg stump and he gloves it to the keeper. Considering the mood he was in, it might have been hard to duck or evade the line of this one that rose above shoulder-height. 48/2
    6.3 he came out with the sword and dies by it. Had a little chip down the track and lofts the length ball right down deep square leg's throat. He knew it straight away as he swung his bat in disgust, but he just had to go for it. But one has to wonder how that wicket will impact Pakistan's strategy 35/1
    56.3 he's out and Azhar Ali is running off to the pavilion to try and ensure not too much time is wasted. Nicks off to the keeper while he was looking to clear the straight boundary. Lakmal's persistence with a length ball on the stumps. It had hit the stumps too, but the bails were not dislodged 295/5
    21.5 chainsaw from Angelo as he pulls this straight to midwicket. Wanted to go over the top of Sanga as this was short and asking to be pulled. Younis got the shot right, but the placement all wrong. Soft dismissal and he knows it 97/3
    36.4 short again and Sarfraz was looking to work it down to long leg. The keeper takes it and Sri Lankans are convinced he's out and they go for the review. The third umpire is looking at loads of replays and it seems to have taken the glove. Sarfraz is gone after a very enterprising little innings that has set Pakistan up here 186/4
