    19.5 beautifully bowled. Slower through the air, 78.5ks, the ball dips on him, and turns away after pitching. Hafeez is drawn forward, but is not quite to the pitch of the ball. The back foot is dragged out as the ball turns past the bat. He tries to get it back, but he has only reached the line when Sanga stumps him. Quite a few replays seen, but there is no part of the foot behind the line when the bails are off 78/3
    2.1 Malinga strikes. That's the start Sri Lanka needed. Short of driving lenght, just outside off, Ali pushes at it away from the body. Nothing shot really. even if he had middled it, he wouldn't got a run. All he manages is a thin edge, and Sanga doesn't drop it 11/1
    7.1 bowled'im. The big inswinger again. Short of a length, just outside off, Younis pushes forward, but has clearly been surprised by the amount of movement. The ball beats the bat, hits him high on the pad, and then the top of the off stump. Kula is thrilled, SL are still alive 27/2
    33.2 Oh we have a Misbah moment here. International cricket will be poorer without Misbah. He jumps out of the crease, gets to the pitch of the ball, drives it solidly to mid-off, wants a single, but Akmal sends him back because it has been hit straight to fielder. Caught well short there 133/4
